Looks like Bravo will continue to get Real for many years to come.
The network has officially ordered a season of The Real Housewives of D.C.; while also picking up The Real Housewives of New Jersey for a second season. Both shows will premiere in early 2010.
Various publicatiosn in Washington publications have speculated that cast members on the D.C. edition will include Lisa Wernick Spies, wife of Republican fundraiser Charlie Spies; Lynda Erkiletian, president of a Washington modeling agency; and Mai Abdo.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey, meanwhile, earned great ratings during its inaugural run. It was buoyed by the attention paid to Danielle Staub and her sordid past.
