The Real Househusbands of DC

Just got back to DC after a few days in California with the fam. Apparently the District is aflutter over the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of DC.

I'd like to see Bravo produce The Real Househusbands of DC, just to shake things up. Bill Clinton and Georgetown professor Martin Ginsburg (husband of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg) seem like good candidates. Eligible bachelors Justice David Souter and President Obama's assistant Reggie Love would also have good screen presence.

The current Bravo series seems like a formulaic extension of the Jerry Springer Show catfights. Women tearing each other apart, rinse, repeat. So is there a market for programming about stay-at-home dads? Would David Souter and Martin Ginsburg be sufficiently confrontational at dinner parties? Who would you like to see on The Real Househusbands of DC?

I love it! Maybe we could get James Carville and Tim Gunn to join the cast???

What a good idea Danielle! When does The Real Housewives of DC start production or has it already? Bravo needs to shake things up a bit, with all these generic shows portraying women as accessories to their partners (Millionaire matchmaker, all the Real Housewives of wherever) it would be refreshing to see some men supporting their wives.
