Three months after we last saw The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Bravo decided to finally renew the show for season 2. While the pick up was expected, it was long overdue, considering the show delivered gossip-worthy ratings ever since it premiered in May and has attracted nearly 3 million total viewers during its explosive reunion special, becoming the most watched Housewives reunion special ever.

In most cases in the past, Bravo has already announced a new season order even before a show wraps up especially if it's a ratings grabber. But in the case of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, word on the street is that the cast is holding out for much bigger paychecks. As of this moment, there is no word yet if all our favorite Jersey girls will be back for more table flipping drama.

Meanwhile, the network has also added yet another installment to the Real Housewives franchise. As reported previously, there have been talks of launching the docu-drama in the influential metropolitan region of Washington, D.C. And now, it's official!

The Real Housewives of D.C. attempts to bring viewers "inside the lives and homes of movers and shakers in the community, all connected in different ways to the political arena. The D.C. wives, cast to be determined, will move comfortably from fundraisers to discussing everything from the economy to high fashion."

If you want to know the possible cast members for the D.C. franchise, check out this article.

Production for both The Real Housewives of New Jersey and The Real Housewives of D.C. is already underway and both series are expected to premiere in 2010.

Does The Real Housewives of D.C. sound like your cup of tea? Or would you rather stick some table-flipping insanity?
