If we’re lucky, we’ll get new editions of ‘Real Housewives’ year-round.

Bravo on Tuesday ordered ‘The Real Housewives of D.C.,’ adding a fifth batch of ladies to its lineup. (Other locations include Orange County, New York, New Jersey and the currently airing Atlanta.)

Casting has not been announced, but according to Hollywood Reporter, ‘Washington publications have speculated that ‘D.C.’ cast members will include Lisa Wernick Spies, wife of Republican fundraiser Charlie Spies, and Lynda Erkiletian, president of a Washington modeling agency. Bravo would not confirm castings.’

The cable network also ordered a second season of the ‘New Jersey’ crew. Both ‘D.C.’ and the new ‘New Jersey’ season will arrive next year. The latter averaged 2.6 million total viewers in its first season.
