Why did Real Housewives of DC get cancelled?

“Real Housewives of DC” was one of the first new shows on Bravo, but the ratings were disappointing. Among the reasons why the show was canceled were its controversial characters, including Michaele Salahis and Tareq Salahi. The series featured the lives of five successful women, who often straddle the line between work and friendship. In addition to their celebrity status, the women are also known for their political activism, and a few were even invited to a state dinner.

The show was canceled a few months after its premiere, and there was a flurry of drama. As the show’s cast continued to feud with each other, rumors of a white-collar scandal erupted. But, despite its controversies, the cast and crew of the show were quick to point out the sexy drama. During an interview with Andy Cohen, one of the cast members confessed that she didn’t realize that the show would be canceled until it had been re-run.

What happened to Oasis Winery?

In February 2009, Oasis Winery filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Virginia. The business had a large amount of debt and was looking to sell it for $4.7 million, but its business practices caused it to become insolvent. The company owed creditors $965,000 in debt, $334,000 in assets, and a boat they used to rent for FedEx Redskins games. Tareq Salahi, the son of founders Dirgham, reportedly promised to sell the winery for $1 on the day he passed away.

Several lawsuits against the Salahis family are pending. The youngest Salahi and his parents have been accused of embezzling company assets and assaulting a family member. A civil lawsuit has been filed against the younger Salahi’s parents, claiming she hid corporate assets. She and her father have also filed for divorce. While many people may think that these allegations are unfounded, they’re hard to believe.

Tareq Salahi’s parents sued him and his son. The divorce was so bitter that Tareq’s father took him over. The two argued and the couple filed for bankruptcy. After filing for bankruptcy, they owed more than $6 million in corporate taxes. They owe the IRS $1.7 million in 2007 but only $335,000 in 2008. However, they claim they had only $35,000 in assets. In addition, they’ve never filed their corporate taxes.
