While other versions of Bravo’s “Housewives” franchise are flourishing and bringing in big ratings for the network, it’s looking like the DC Housewives didn’t get enough votes to survive another term.
“The show just didn’t do well and it wasn’t worth airing another season,” an anonymous source told RadarOnline.com.
There are currently seven cities in the “Housewives” franchise: Orange County, Atlanta, New Jersey, New York, DC, Beverly Hills and Miami.
Compared to the drama of the other casts, such as Atlanta and New Jersey, DC was tame, with the biggest storyline being that of the Salahis party crashing at the White House.
Arguably, the best thing to come out of the series was cast member Stacie Turner locating her birth father in Nigeria.
Stacie, who is biracial, knew she was adopted and located her White birth mother who wanted nothing to do with her. However, the show chronicled her search for her father, which later resulted in a trip to Africa and a warm welcome for Stacie and her family.
Since misery loves company, the Washingtonians might be happy to hear that the Miami ladies are also in danger.
“They’ve realized a lot with the failure of DC and Miami, and they’re going to concentrate on the successful shows they have and not expand any further,” the source said of the Bravo network.
With the Atlanta housewives still breaking records for the network and stirring up drama wherever they go, it’s not likely the ladies of DC will be missed.
