The Salahis are finding themselves unwelcomed once again. Reports are saying that the couple have not been invited back to season two of “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Bravo was hoping the attention surrounding the gatecrashing twosome would bring high ratings to the show, but now the network suspects that Michaele and Tareq are turning viewers off the series. I guess there is such a thing as too much self-promotion. [PopEater]
After the jump, other housewives who found themselves booted out when it was time for a contract renewal.
|Lynne Curtin: This little housewife stirred things up by joining “The Real Housewives of O.C.” in season four and bringing her bratty daughter Alexa along with her. Even though she went under the knife and into debt while on the show, Bravo decided she didn’t provide enough to keep her on for season six. Rumor is they already have a replacement moving in. [E!

|Danielle Staub: You would think between the sex tape, lesbian loves, record parties, and all-around essence of Crazy Town, Danielle would be a shoo-in for season three of “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Apparently, the hijinks went against her because Ms. Staub was allegedly not invited back. We can only hope this means a Staub-powered spin-off. [CBS News]|
|DeShawn Snow: DeShawn found herself walking towards the exit for the opposite reason. The former Atlanta housewife got the call that she would not be invited back to another season of the show because she “was too human for a circus show.” Hopefully, Snow took it as a compliment that she wasn’t fit to live among her hair-pulling counterparts. Still, we will always call her DeYawn. [I’m Not Obsessed]|
|Lisa Wu Hartwell: Fellow Atlanta resident Hartwell also found herself dropped from the show for being a little too sweet for the rest of the catty cast. Bravo has two new Housewives for a double dose of drama on the upcoming season. [Dime Wars]|
|Alex McCord: The New York housewife and her husband were asked to leave the show when Bravo decided the couple didn’t interact with the rest of cast enough to be relevant. Though the Brooklyn residents were somewhat remote from the rest of the housewives, other sources say that it was their angry demand for more salary that left Alex and her husband unneeded.

|Jo De La Rosa You can’t be a housewife if you move out of the area code, and that is what happened with Jo. After breaking up with her infamous boyfriend Slade, Jo decided it was time to pack up to move to L.A. to start a music career. Bravo decided to stop filming her then. Though Jo and Slade were split, he still stayed on as semi-agent of sorts for her quest for musical fame. The couple also produced the first “Housewives” spin-off with their show “Date My Ex: Jo & Slade.” I wonder if this is where Heidi and Spencer are getting all their bad ideas from.|
