After a drama-filled first season, fans were surprised (or not so surprised) to see Bravo announce the cancellation of the Real Housewives of D.C….

@pwgavin: Bravo pulls plug on “Real Housewives of D.C.”

@MetromixDC: Oh no! Bravo canceled #RealHousewivesof D.C. #sadface

@littleylittley: Whew, That Was Close: ‘Real Housewives Of D.C.’ has officially been canceled.#rhodc #MiamiIsNext

The Housewives took to Twitter to thank their fans and provide hope for the future…

@stacieturnerdc: The past 18 months has truly been an amazing adventure! Thanks so much for your support. The best is yet to come…….

@maryamons: Bittersweet day, memorable fun ride w/ @catommanney @THErealLyndaDC @stacieturnerdc & the Bravo family! Exciting projects ahead! #staytuned

@catommanney: So the milk was spilt,and we cried over it..(meow meow) and then the next show..mmm well thats going to be ‘creme de la creme’!!..

And, as expected, it was  Cat Ommanney fans who took the news the worst, begging Bravo’s Andy Cohen to take action…

@NotSoSoccerMom: @catommanney u are so NOT a loudmouth Brit! @BravoAndy , forget #Pia, find a way to #savecat

@WesstheDJ: Dear @BravoAndy, PLEASE utilize @catommanney some way, some how! We’ll miss her!

@Florida_Belle: @catommanney So disappointed about#RHODC cancellation. You should move to NY and join #RHONY. Would love to see you handle Jill & Kelli

But the focus all week has been the possibility of a government shutdown as Democrats and Republicans struggle to reach a budget deal.

@RobLowe: If there is a government shut down who do I put on a plane to DC: Chris Treager or Sam Seaborn?

@DanaPerino: I wonder if a couple of women got in the negotiating room they wouldn’t be able to get this all wrapped up ASAP so we can have weekend.

@GeorgetownPatch: Sadly true. RT @bruisey#ifgovernmentshutsdown a lot of interns are getting wasted in Georgetown this weekend.

@StevenTDennis: Sadly, Senate cafeteria is already #shutdown. Dinner will be potato skins and machine coffee.
