Bravo's 'The Real Housewives of DC' premiered last night, so it's time to rank the ladies. How do you think they did? Rank them from your favorite to least favorite.

The first episode of The Real Housewives of DC was mind-numbingly boring. Other than Ms. Turner, the women are interchangeable--I couldn't tell one from the other. I gave up and watched Project Runway on Lifetime. At least, the participants are creative, interesting and doing something useful.

It was kind of boring, fun to see our town though! That is all of our town. Ms. Turner's comment that those who live in the Suburbs like McLean should not call themselves native Washingtonians is ridiculous. She grew up in Alexandria herself! Was she even born in the District? Most folks I have known growing up in Bethesda and McLean WERE born in the District at Georgetown, GW, or the old Columbia Hospital. She needs to check that attitude at the door. Anyone born and raised inside the Beltway is a native Washingtonian.

Michaele is the fun one to watch. She's gorgeous and vapid but she tries to be positive and upbeat. Linda is a harpy cougar with her oversized 6-5 African boy toy. WTH is THAT about ?!

@ OneHillStaffer: Stacie's correct on this one. If you were born in DC, and you grew up in the burbs...you were simply born in DC—nothing more, nothing less. If you live in Bethesda, Mclean, etc, please stop saying you're a native Washingtonian because you're NOT. That designation is reserved for people who actually grow up/spend the vast majority of their formative years within the city limits of the District. Own it…and enjoy your Applebee’s!

I agree chuksorb1. People who live in the burbs are not Washingtonians. Most people in the burbs 'talk' about DC, but unless it's for a parade, festival, or work, they're not going into any 'real' DC neighborhoods. Their familiarity with life in the district is first and foremost media provided.

The burbies like to say how they are from DC, but they won't live there and many are afraid to go anywhere except the same places that tourists hang out.

Wonder how many fake names the white house party crashers are making to create a fan club or fans at all?

No one can tell me why she is "fun" to watch? Or if they have done business with her and been paid and treated fairly.

She's grifter who grifted a producers at Bravo. She isn't known in the DC social circuit. Women like that have real jobs with salaries and don't air their dirty laundry.

If you are from Washington, DC, you live in Washington, DC, Ward 3 ?? and hopefully, know the name of your Councilmember! So many folks say they are from Washington, DC, because, according to them, folks in the hinterlands never heard of Maryland or Virginia? Just old fashioned Name Dropping for - onehillstaffer? Good that the stringy hair extensions blond has a job...she can pay for the bills her hubby is unable to pay for...if she stops living in hotels...poor little Hotelwife of Virginia?

Thank you! As a native, I notice that MD and VA people only come to town to enjoy the DC scene and then they go home and are really quick to criticize Washingtonians as if they are lower forms of life. However, when they leave town--they id themselves as being from DC. (I have seen this with friends first hand) They also talk about the city as if they know it intimately but they have no first hand knowledge of the city, especially the geography.
