The Real Housewives of D.C. is an American reality television series that debuted August 5, 2010 on Bravo. It is the fifth installment in the network's Real Housewives franchise. The season was shot shortly after the Presidential election and inauguration, showcasing D.C. and its political social scene in its truest form.


On April 7, 2011, Bravo announced that The Real Housewives of D.C. had been canceled, despite good ratings. This was a first in the history of the franchise that one of its United States installments failed to be renewed due to the Salahi-White House incident, which the network received negative reviews due to the scandal and legal troubles.

The Real Housewives of Potomac premiered on January 17, 2016 and is set just 15 miles outside of the Washington D.C. area.
