Season 1

1. Welcome to the District

Aug 5, 2010
Welcome to D.C., the most powerful city in America, where it takes more than money to impress people -- it's about political power. With the social season in full swing, Michaele's Polo event caters to those who want to be close to it all, with attendees including the Ambassador of India, Michelle Jones and Republican Lobbyist, Edwina Rogers. As old rivalries cause Lynda to snub Michaele's Polo event, Mary struggles with the guest list for her birthday party. And Cat, the brash Brit and new girl in town, gets a crash course in public relations at Stacie's dinner party prepared by a celebrity chef.

Mary quickly realizes that having Lolly, her adult daughter, move back home comes with bigger burdens than she expected. Michaele makes good on her promise to take Cat and Mary horseback riding, but Mary is far from impressed. Stacie's attempt to show the ladies "where she comes from" takes an unexpected turn when her down-home, soul food dinner is ruined by one of her guests. Lynda is pushed to her limit when a confrontation with Michaele breaks all the D.C. rules.

3. Foreign Relations

Aug 19, 2010
It's off to Paris! After a spontaneous decision by Michaele and Tareq to join Stacie and her husband in Europe, the couples start to bond. Meanwhile, controversy over D.C. etiquette has the housewives questioning Michaele's role as a host for high profile events. Cat is hard at work on her book and getting her cover ready, when disappointment strikes. The housewives gather at Mary's fashion dinner to welcome a celebrity hairstylist, but with previous drama still lingering, things don't go as planned.

4. The Grape Stomp of Wrath

Aug 26, 2010
Lynda deals with the stress of moving from her Georgetown condo to a sprawling suburban mansion to accommodate her grown children. Cat raises suspicions that there may be more than meets the eye with Michaele and Tareq. In an effort to patch things up with the rest of the ladies, Michaele reaches out and invites everyone out to her winery for an old fashioned grape stomp.

Mary bonds with Cat over her struggle to be a good mother and reveals her boundary issues with her daughter Lolly.

Stacie hits another hurdle in her journey to find her birth father, but is able to connect with her roots through an unexpected link at the Nigerian Embassy.
