    The Salahi's *will* be on Bravo Reality Show

    http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment...be_the_da.html

    The latest Real Housewives series, set to further tarnish the reputation of the nation's capital on August 5th, will indeed include Michaele and Tareq Salahi, the infamous White House state dinner crashers. The show will play up the social-climbing side of the political town:
    I'm not even curious, and I definitely won't watch the Balloon Boys of the East Coast.

    People are too often rewarded for ridiculous and even illegal behavior. I will NOT be watching.

    Nobody with an I.Q. over 40 would be watching anyway.

    The Washington Post will not quit yammering on and on about these people and their wretched show. The other day, the Style section had THREE articles about it. You'd think the ghost of Princess Di had arrived in town.

    I hope you're right; these two are getting paid and Bravo's pushed the line too far on this one.

    I didn't think Bravo could find more pathetic famewhores than they're sporting in their other housewives show, but they actually managed it. Way to scrape whatever's below the bottom of the barrel, Bravo.

    Geez... You know, Bravo used to show foreign films and performances from the Paris Opera. Now we're stuck with this dreck.

    I hope that whatever the Salahis earned goes towards paying everyone they've stiffed.

    I haven't seen any of the real housewives shows, and I won't start now. It would be nice if the Salahis could pay some of their creditors with the money they will make, but I imagine they will find a way to avoid that too.

    If this is supposed to be about DC hoi polloi, shouldn't it be cast with someone who actually gets invited to White House dinners? Maybe some of the other cast members do.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Ditto!
    These people should not appear on TV, unless it's before a judge.

    Nope, what I mean is:

    The plural to Salahi is Salahis.

    Salahi's means something that belongs to a Salahi.

    Salahis' means something that belongs to Salahis.

    I guess "grocer's apostrophe" is a British term. It means incorrect use of apostrophe, because greengrocers pretty much always make those mistakes on the notices next to the fruit and veg they are selling.

    The execs at Bravo should be ashamed of themselves. It's irresponsible of them to reward the Salahis for the stunt they pulled last November.

    I remember reading Bravo wanted the wives of Lobbyists and Movers and Shakers, but, not surprisingly, had a hard time getting any of them to agree. Those types are generally very discreet

    I thought they could at least get Edwina Rogers, who was shown on TV wrapping presents in sheets of dollar bills which she would order uncut from the bureau of Engraving. Here is a clip:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXj-oQm-NbE

    She and her high powered husband are lobbyists. She used to work for a client of mine so I got a Xmas card from her one year - it had multiple photos of her kids posed in many of the rooms in her very large house (which you can see in the clip). The furniture was featured more than the kids.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.
