    Wow, when you read both sides of the story you can really see how this show destroys lives. It's sad for both of them. I'm actually fond of Cat, rudeness and all. I really hope there isn't a 2nd season.

    I also can't believe that anyone wants to see Cracky Salahi naked. And to pay for it?!?

    No kidding! I am convinced she is on Adderall 24/7 on that show.

    I HATE Michaele Salahi and her husband with a passion! I really like Mary, Staci, and Cat a whole lot. Not so sure about Llinda yet but she freaks me out with her bat-brows.

    Lindas ok if you can get past her looks. Cat and Staci all the way. Anyone think Michaele was a smoker? Her mouth has wrinkles around it. Its really noticable. She could use a neck lift too. She really looks older than she is

    Mary's house is for sale:



    SELLERS: Mary and Rich Amons
    LOCATION: McLean, VA
    PRICE: $2,350,000
    SIZE: 5,450 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms

    YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Listen butter beans, we know we're a little late to the fiesta on this one so we don't want to hear it. None the less and whether y'all like it or not, we just can not seem to ever pass us up a real estate story on any of The Real Housewives of Wherever. This time we're turning our attentions to those name dropping and snipey gals in Washington, D.C. The property in question isn't, as it turns out, in Washington D.C. proper but rather in the upscale bedroom community of McLean, VA where philanthropic Housewife Mary Amons and her very metrosexual huzband Rich have recently listed their neo-Colonial crib with an asking price of $2,350,000.

    For what it's worth and for any of the children who might care, Mister Amons makes his money in wireless communications and technologies, or something like that anyway. According to the opening credits of The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. Missus Amons says that she doesn't make any money, she only spends it, which is, let's be honest bunnies, such a gauche and stoopid thing to say. Miss Amons is, however, one of the few "housewives" who is actually a housewife. She married young and pushed out about five children ranging in age from teenager to mid-20s.

    Missus Amons also happens to be the granddaughter of the late radio icon and alleged anti-Semite Arthur Godfrey. We suspect Missus Amons would not want the anti-Semite part mentioned and would likely take offense to that particular characterization of Grandpa Godfrey saying something about how her granddaddy had Jews on his enormously popular and successful radio programs all the time. Although probably not all that unusual at that time, he also, so the story goes, had a sign on the door of the Kenilworth Hotel in Miami, Fl–which he owned–that read, "no dogs, no Jews," or something asinine like that. However, Mister Godfrey's alleged feelings about canines and Jews can not and should not be mistaken for what Missus Amons does or does not think about such matters. After all, Your Mama has a few characters amongst our kinfolk who hold some pretty bee-zarre notions too.

    Anyhoo, property records show that Mister and Missus Amons purchased their mini-mansion in the highly desirable and posh Langley Farms area of McLean, VA in May of 1994 for $810,000. Listing information shows the dignified but architecturally wonky and extensively remodeled residence was originally built in 1939, measures around 5,450 square feet, and includes a total of 6 bedrooms and 5.5 poopers.

    The classic center hall layout puts the formal rooms up front and the less formal family areas towards the back of the residence. To the right of the marble floored entrance hall is the formal living room with its white white white walls, black hardwood floors, large windows, and wood burning fireplace with marble surround. Missus Amons sets the tone for the decorative style of the house here in the formal living room where she has paired and juxtaposed classic details such as chair rails and dentil moldings with more contemporary, casual and clean lined sofas and chairs including a Cappellini Rive Droite armchair covered in pink, black and gray Pucci fabric. Just as an f.y.i., puppies, should y'all want one of them gorgeous Pucci chairs, it'll set you back at least $4,200.

    Opposite the living room is the formal dining room with more white white white walls, glossy black hardwood floors and a not entirely successful mish-mash of antique and modern furniture that includes a double pedestal dining room table, a glass fronted curio cabinet were Missus Amons displays her collection of antique tea cups, and an simple and over-sized drum shade chandelier. Your Mama will not even attempt to discuss or make sense of that female torso mannequin that's been painted red and stood up in the corner like some bloody spectator.

    Between the formal dining room and the gore-may kitchen is another more casual eating area that has a fireplace and a small collection of really bad faux-pop art style paintings. The kitchen itself is quite large and includes cherry cabinets that have been painted white, marble counter tops, high grade stainless steel appliances, and a long center island with breakfast bar. A convenient back stair separates the kitchen from the adjacent family room that features a floor to ceiling stone faced fireplace, more glossy black hardwood floors, a coffered ceiling, and built-in cabinetry. The room is all did up and done over with a sisal rug, white upholstered sofas and chairs, and a myriad of black and white cow hide pillows and rugs. Although Your Mama could not bear to show it, listing photos reveal that the otherwise decoratively well conceived family room is punished by a dreaded and dreadful painting of a pair of pears.

    There are 5 bedrooms on the second floor and a sixth loft bedroom and pooper located on the third floor in what we presume was once attic space. The Amons' master suite has dark brown hardwood floors on top of which is another animal skin rug, cathedral ceilings, a marble tiled pooper with sizable sky light, private deck, and a walk-in closet equipped with a biometric fingerprint operated security system installed so that Missus Amons' daughters don't sneak into her boo-dwar and borrow her designer duds.

    The corner property has a stately if somewhat cramped circular drive out front and a second driveway at the rear of the property that leads to garaging for 4 cars. Located just off the kitchen, a window wrapped sun porch with terra cotta tile floors opens to a slim back yard, which actually runs up the long side of the house. Most of the yard is comprised of an expansive slate tile terrace surrounded by simple plantings.

    Given that most of Mister and Missus Amons children are still living at home, it seems unlikely that they're downsizing. It seems more likely to Your Mama that they're up-sizing. But of course Your Mama does not know a pair of orange pants from a piece of fruit and nor have we heard a whisper about what their plans really are. Iffin anyone in McLean wants to enlighten Your Mama to the Amons' real estate plans, be sure and give us a holler.

    In addition to the Amons, another of the Washington D.C. housewives, modeling and talent agency owner slash cougar Lynda Erkiletian, has long had real estate roots in the Langley Farms area of McLean. Miz Erkiletian, who is twice dee-vorced but now dates a much younger and hunky piece of dark chocolate named Ebong, lived a few blocks from the Amons until 2006 when property records show she sold her 7 bedroom and 6 full and 2 half pooper house on Kedleston Court for $2,662,500 and hightailed it for a swank condo in D.C.'s ritzy Georgetown neighborhood. In August of 2009, according to records, the successful biznesswoman sold her 4,638 square foot condo in the Ritz Carlton complex in Georgetown for $5,349,993 and just a few months later, in December of 2009, shelled out $2,075,000 for a 6,234 square foot house in in same area of McLean's Langley Farms where she previously lived and just a few blocks from the Amons.

    In Washington D.C., one's social status is inextricably married to having access to or being adjacent to political power and the Amons family spread puts them in proximity to some pretty big Washington names. Just down the street is rejected Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork, and around the corner is Dick and Lynn Cheney's new house that sits directly across the street from the legendary Hickory Hill, the former estate of Ethel Kennedy that records show was sold in December of 2009 for $8,250,000. Also in the 'hood are former senator/lobbyist/actor Fred Thompson, retired 4-star general and statesman Colin Powell and, let's not forget, the CIA headquarters which are walking distance from the Amons family homestead.

    I like the house although it's too much white for my taste.

    I wonder where they're going?

    It saddens me that they took was was probably a pretty nifty older house and made it look like a McLean McMansion.

    Michaele Salahi Reveals: I Have Multiple Sclerosis

    By Charlotte Triggs
    Wednesday September 15, 2010 07:50 AM EDT


    A shocking, long-held secret about Real Housewives of D.C. star Michaele Salahi is being revealed in a new book about her: "I have multiple sclerosis," she admits.

    The reality star, perhaps best known as one of the alleged White House party crashers, is the subject of Cirque du Salahi, written by Diane Dimond.

    Salahi, 44, tells PEOPLE why she kept her diagnosis of the potentially crippling nervous system disorder quiet for 17 years. "No one wants to be seen as sickly," she explains. "And I didn't want to be pitied."

    But despite her struggles, Salahi says being positive keeps her going: "The only way I can deal with it is to smile and act like I can get through it."

    I don't believe her for a moment. I want to see her symptoms. My sister in law has crippling MS and if this bitch is lying (which I'm sure she is) I'd like to smack the shit out of her. She's had it for 17 years? She would have some symptoms even if she was on meds, as far as I'm concerned.

    ^ Agreed, one of my professors had it and could barely move. It was sad because she was a talented ballerina for many years. Actually some students nominated her for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and they redid her whole house to make it easily accessible for her.
