The Real Housewives of DC: Charles Ommanney Regrets Doing The Show

September 26, 2010 01:52 PM by Sarah_Monson


The Real Housewives of DC just keeps churning out the drama – and it doesn’t even appear on the show itself! First you had party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi not getting invited back to film a second season of the Bravo show, because they were allegedly total nightmares to work with. Now, Cat Ommanney’s husband, Charles Ommanney, is the spotlight because he totally regrets doing the show in the first place.

Ommenney, an award winning photographer, is best known for chronicling President Bush’s time in the White House and following Barack Obama on the campaign trail.

Soon after he married Cat, he agreed to let Bravo take over his life. And now he regrets it all. You can’t really blame him — the show basically ruined his marriage. Even before the first episode aired, the couple had filed for divorce after being married only two years. Ouch. (They are now officially divorced and Charles is single, living in Miami.)

The Real Housewives of DC has certainly failed to live up to the table flipping expectations of other Real Housewives franchises, and for that he’s probably secretly thankful. The less eyes watching the show means the less on him. All in all, he did manage to keep a pretty low profile on the show, while Cat and the other housewives ran rampant all over DC making fools of themselves. Now that he’s done with it, he’s come up for air to give a pretty revealing interview to the New York Times talking about what a terrible decision this was. Here’s a suggestion, Chaz — stop talking to people about doing the show if you want people to forget that you were on the show.

So, why did he do it? Love, of course!

In a way, I was naïve and foolish to sign off on doing this. But, at the end of the day, it was innocent. I wanted happiness for someone I was in love with. I put all my reservations aside and said: ‘Go for it. Do it if it makes you happy.’ Then I regretted it. I lost touch with everyone, and mix that with my marriage falling apart and the show taking over, it was very sad.

Oh, the things one does for a sexy British accent like Cat’s.
