Housewife-in-Chief

What sets Mary Schmidt Amons apart from the other ladies on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of D.C.? For starters, she actually is a real housewife, mom to what she affectionately refers to as “the Amons clan” of five kids (ranging in age from 12 to 24) and wife to Rich, her husband of more than 20 years.

Another thing—Mary has manners. “I would never invite myself to the White House,” she says with a wry smile. What if someone crashed a party at her house? “I’m a hospitable person,” she says. “I’d probably let them stay.” Luckily, Mary let us stay—and even gave a tour of her McLean, Va., home.
