The season will 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.

Everyone's favorite Jersey Girls are back for a second season of table flipping drama in 2010. "The Real Housewives of New Jersey's" freshman season ranks as the highest rated Real Housewives series ever in all demographics, averaging 2.55 million total viewers and 1.91 million adults 18-49. The series' first season reunion was Bravo's most watched Housewives reunion special ever.
