Bravo Cancels 'Real Housewives of D.C.'

Real Housewives of D.C. Group Shot 2011

Bravo has given the ax to its first Real Housewives series.

The Real Housewives of D.C. will not be returning for a second season.

The D.C. installment was the fifth series of the franchise to air on Bravo, which still has versions set in Orange County, New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, Beverly Hills and Miami.

The series premiered Aug. 5, 2010 and performed modestly in the ratings compared to its predecessors, but Miami has been drawing lower numbers than D.C.

Bravo recently announced 11 new series pickups and five renewals, in addition to a slew of new projects -- including a scripted drama -- in development.
