She may have had to deal with losing her husband and her Bravo reality show in the same year, but now, former Real Housewives of D.C. star Cat Ommanney is using both of those things to her advantage, auctioning off her lacy pink wedding dress to raise some money for The Humane Society. Yes…lacy pink…with feathers!
“I was persuaded into buying the ‘candy fairy dress’ after a rather long boozy lunch, on a weekend trip to Miami,” Cat explains on the auction site, NeverLikedItAnyway.com.
“It was supposed to be a fairy tale wedding day, hence the dress, but as history now shows it was all imaginary fantasy.”
Shortly after the first and final season of The Real Housewives of D.C. wrapped, Cat and her husband, Charles, split. Now, she’s using her short-lived reality TV stardom and that
horrid $1,800 dress to help out a good cause.
“All the money raised for the dress will go directly to the Humane Society as a contribution to all the incredible work they do, the lives they save, the time they give and the love they provide,” says Ommanney.
The opening bid for the ‘candy fairy dress’ is $1,000, with the auction closing on July 1. But if she REALLY wants to raise a lot of cash, maybe she should auction off whatever she wore during those trysts with Prince Harry back in 2007!
