‘The Real Housewives’ Love D.C. Pubs (and the Feeling is Mutual)


All kinds of publications benefit from the upcoming Bravo’s “Real Housewives of D.C.” Bravo’s Andy Cohen has blogged about the show on HuffPost. Catherine Ommanney, a British housewife, is married to a Newsweek photographer. Mary Amons, another housewife, says Washingtonian magazine hooked her up by picking her husband to be a “style setter”. The publisher, she says, is a a “close” friend. That would be Cathy Merrill Williams.

Mary Amons, is described by WaPo as the “super-mom who lives in a McMansion in McLean.” In Wednesday’s take on the show by WaPo’s Lisa de Moraes, she reveals a relationship between Amons and Washingtonian that sounds cozy:

“Mary’s husband, meanwhile, has been chosen one of D.C.’s style setters by Washingtonian magazine because the publisher is “one of my best friends and she’s really hooking me up,” Mary explains as she winks at the camera.”

FishbowlDC sought comment from Washingtonian this morning. A request for comment was not yet returned. Should the publication have a response later in the day we will bring it to you.
