The Real Housewives of the Pentagon

The Petraeus scandal imagined as a certain reality TV show.

The more we learn, the more the events and characters surrounding the fall of David Petraeus seem straight out of reality TV.  Extra-marital affair, check.  Jealous “other woman,” check.  Inappropriate emails, check. Manipulative social climbers, check.

With that in mind, Slate V has created a trailer for new show called Real Housewives of the Pentagon.

Also in Slate, see why “socialite” has become a term of derision for Jill Kelley and others.
