They can sure drop the racist stuff. Did you notice when Michelle and Stacie were shopping in Paris, and Michelle had numerous packages - where the heck do the Salahis get their money? The winery is bankrupt. Do they get paid for showing up at social events, I wonder?
I live five miles from McLean, Va. and sometimes shop there. I shop at the 'real' McLean with grocery stores, gas stations, drug stores, book stores, etc. I've never seen anyone famous shopping in McLean because they probably have hired help to do mundane stuff like grocery shopping. I've never been to the expensive estates where Mary and her family live. I work in D.C. but have never met any of the people shown on the program because I'm just an ordinary person and don't travel in the same circles - which is just fine with me. But I find it fascinating to watch the show on TV. The Dupont Circle subway stop where Cat's husband took her photo - yes, I've used that stop. It's fun to try and identify various locales.
It's so misleading when they show that imposing stone house and imply that Michelle and her husband live there. They don't. They live in a much, much more modest house. I've read several times about it. That's just wrong to imply stuff like that.
I'm finding Cat pretty hard to take. So while the series was being filmed, she was writing a book about finding her 'lost love' and by the time the series ended, they had split? How AWKWARD. I checked the Amazon.com website for Britain, and it indicates she has a book called "Inbox Full" that was scheduled to be published on 3/4/10. However, it's not available, although you can sign up to be notified when it's available for ordering - like never, perhaps
I'm sorry for Cat's daughters because they seemed to like their step-father, but now the girls have moved back to England to be with their biological father, apparently. It's always the children who lose the most.
