Much of the drama swirling around “The Real Housewives of D.C.” centers on a certain gatecrashing couple’s efforts to meet President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle. But not all the housewives are so enamored of the Obamas.
Cat Ommanney, the British-born wife of Newsweek photographer Charles Ommanney, has a bone to pick with the first couple: They didn’t reply to her wedding invitation.
Unaware of the tension her complaint had caused among the Obama fans in the room, Ommanney continued, “As a gentleman, [Bush] was a class act.”
The White House declined to comment on Ommanney’s gripe.
Presidents aren’t the only major pols up for discussion in the opening episode: At one point the ladies gather ’round an iPhone to admire a photo of Vice President Joe Biden shot by Ommanney. “He’s so cute!” gushes cast member Stacie Turner.
