A Washington couple who gate-crashed a state dinner at the White House in November will be featured in a new series of the Bravo cable channel's popular reality TV franchise "Real Housewives," The Daily Beast news website reported on Friday.

Michaele and Tareq Salahi caused an embarrassing security flap at the White House when they finessed their way into a state dinner for Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh without a formal invitation and were photographed shaking hands with President Barack Obama.

The Virginia couple were auditioning for a part in "The Real Housewives of D.C." and had been followed by a camera crew earlier in the day.

The Daily Beast, citing sources close to the TV series, said Bravo has now decided to go ahead with the show premiering in July. Bravo could not immediately be reached for comment.

"The Real Housewives of D.C" would be the latest in the hit reality franchise which has profiled the lives of wealthy society women in New York, Atlanta, Orange County and New Jersey, turning many of them into minor celebrities.
