The woman who crashed President Barack Obama's first state dinner has cashed in with a reality TV deal.

The Bravo network said Tuesday that Michaele Salahi (mih-KEL' sah-LAH'-hee) will be featured in the next installment of its "Real Housewives" franchise, this time focused on Washington.

Salahi and her husband, Tareq (TAH'-rehk), talked their way into the dinner last November, forcing the White House to tighten security restrictions.

"The Real Housewives of D.C." will debut Aug. 5 at 9 p.m. Eastern.

Other "Real Housewives" joining Salahi include the granddaughter of TV personality Arthur Godfrey, the founder of a modeling agency, a British import who's an interior designer and a real estate agent who started a charity for teenaged girls in foster care.
