Get ready for more table flipping — and some political backstabbing! The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return for a second season, while a new group of women in D.C. will become Real Housewives, Bravo announced today.

The Housewives of New Jersey‘s season 2 will air in 2010, but the network hasn’t announced which of the women from its first seasonDanielle Staub , Dina Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo — will be back.

Meanwhile, the network also revealed that it has chosen Washington D.C. for its next Real Housewives location. That show, the network’s fifth franchise, will also air in 2010.

“A place for power and politics, Bravo scouted the D.C. area to identify the city’s alluring and discriminating residents, the women who have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings and fundraisers in Washington society,” Frances Berwick, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Bravo Media, said in a statement. “The season will bring viewers inside the lives and homes of movers and shakers in the community, all connected in different ways to the political arena. The D.C. wives, cast to be determined, will move comfortably from fundraisers to discussing everything from the economy to high fashion.”
