Insiders tell Popeater.com that Bravo has let them go because of their inability to bring in high ratings.
"The DC show is the only show in the entire franchise that isn't a true hit," says the insider. "And the Salahi's are the biggest reason for that. At first, execs thought they struck gold with all the attention the couple got over the White House dinner. But now they realize not all press is good press and this couple's involvement in the show has turned more viewers off than on."
But network sources say Bravo decided they were done with the Salahis when they lied in their new book Cirque Du Salahi: Be Careful Who You Trust, claiming their "iron-clad" contract with Bravo doesn't allow them to talk about the White House-crashing incident to the media.
Bravo then turned around and released this statement: "Bravo [has] consistently and repeatedly stated to the Salahis and their representatives that they were free to speak to press, law enforcement, Congress and anyone else about attending the State Dinner. Indeed, they have given multiple press interviews on that very subject."
The other Housewives seem thrilled with the decision. One in particular said, "At this point, they are an embarrassment to the 'Housewife' franchise. They are a loose cannon. Now, Michaele has revealed she has multiple sclerosis; next she'll be announcing she is pregnant with triplets to get attention."
We couldn’t agree more with the decision! D.C. isn’t even worth watching—so they’d better try and find some replacements or we don’t see it getting picked up for another season.
