Lynda Erkiletian Reflects On Her Time On The Real Housewives Of D.C.!

Lynda Erkiletian reflects on her time on The Real Housewives of D.C. The Artist Agency owner talks life after being on the Bravo controversial reality series, working with the Salahis and shares her thoughts on The Real Housewives of Potomac.

"When I started doing the show, I had already been in business 26 years, so I had my tribe of industry people who knew who I was," she told The Washington Post when asked about her experience on RHODC. "But it was wonderful to have the platform of Bravo and be able to showcase our industry across the nation and, in some cases, across the world."

Was RHODC a good or bad experience for Lynda? "I won’t say it was all a bed of roses. It certainly was not. As you probably know, we had our White House crashers, and the FBI — which [“Housewives” executive producer] Andy Cohen just recently talked about — came in and seized all the film and footage. It was very uncomfortable," she explained. "We were the first “Housewives” show that didn’t go forward for a second season. We knew that [before they told us] because they stopped filming, and we knew the FBI requested all the footage because they had to make sure that Bravo didn’t have anything to do with it. That’s a monster breathing down your back when you’re trying to do a reality show."

Lynda admits she has no regrets about joining the D.C. Housewives series, even if she had to film with the Salahis, which she explains her reasons why she wasn't a fan of them.

"Oh, no. I didn’t really film with the Salahis with the exception of being at other people’s parties, because that was part of my contract. I had done business with them in the past, and I didn’t want the association. We had done her [Michaele’s] polo event before for the fashion show, and, unfortunately, it wasn’t a very good business arrangement," she said. "We had to sue them to get our money. So, I really didn’t want to pretend that I liked who they were. But I think the “Housewives of D.C.” was certainly worth doing it. I have no regrets as far as that goes."

Lynda shares her thoughts on The Real Housewives of Potomac. "I haven’t seen this season, but I do have favorites. I think it’s great to have a reality show in D.C. I used to live in Potomac. It’s a fantastic city," she tells The Washington Post. "It’s wonderful that they’re doing it. We need something to showcase our city on a national level. If that’s what it takes, I’m all for it."
