An African American Ivy League grad and real estate mogul is among the five woman announced Tuesday as part of Bravo’s upcoming “The Real Housewives of DC.” Stacie Scott Turner, an Alexandria, VA native, has an MBA from Harvard, runs a successful real estate practice and maintains a vigorous civic and philanthropic agenda, according to her bio.
It further states: Stacie and her husband Jason easily move amongst Washington’s unique brew of local, federal, and international players. She juggles work, her family life as a mom of two young kids, Jacob and Catherine, and a busy social life. But Stacie’s passion lies in the charity she founded and holds dear to her heart – Extra-Ordinary Life – which provides life-changing experiences to teenage girls living in DC foster care.
Other cast members include the infamous White House state dinner crasher Michaele Salahi, Mary Schmidt Amons (described by Bravo as “the true Washingtonian and granddaughter of radio and TV personality Arthur Godfrey“); Lynda Erkiletian (“the mother hen and owner of D.C.’s top modeling agency”); and Catherine Ommanney (a “feisty Brit” who is “married to a White House photographer”).
