Stacie doesn’t want to be like any of the other Housewives — drama doesn’t go hand-in-hand with her nickname as the “diplomat!”

Image is very important for The Real Housewives of Washington D.C. star Stacie Scott Turner. She wants the world (and her kids) to see her as the the politically correct member of the cast. “I have small kids,” Stacie told HollywoodLife.com exclusively Aug. 5 at the Real Housewives of D.C. premiere after party at Buddha Bar. “I can’t be out there acting a fool. I don’t want them thinking badly of their mama.”

“I think about that in all the scenes we do,” Stacie explained. “I am always labeled the diplomat. I try to be [agreeable]. We’re grown women and I don’t have time for little petty stuff. … I felt like I was relatively unscathed [by my]” portrayal on the show. They really showed my reality. So far, I think it’s reflective of the work that we did.”

But even though Stacie acts as the mediator among the other D.C. Housewives, she admits this isn’t the most appealing role. “I don’t necessarily want to mediate,” Stacie said. “I have so much going on in my life, I don’t have time to be in the middle.”

Stacie’s also adjusting to life in the spotlight. “I’ve had a hundred interviews in the last seven days,” Stacie said. “Being on The ViewThe View and the Today Show are my two favorite shows — we’re like kids. We had a dressing room with our names on it and we were taking pictures. All of this is new and surreal! … It was just weird. Seeing it on TV and seeing other people’s reactions — we are like ‘Wow, wow WOO!'”

Hopefully for Stacie’s sake, Bravo continues to portray her as the “diplomat” of the show, because she doesn’t want to embarrass her family and friends!

She must have not watched any of the other Real Housewives franchises. NONE of the housewives end up looking good in the end. Eventually they do something while being filmed that ends up on the air that makes them look bad – COUNT ON IT. Bravo doesn’t broadcast these shows to make anyone look good – that doesn’t bring in the ratings. Stacies is either going to look bad for something she does or look bad for hanging around with other people who act like clowns on natonal TV.

If she’s worried about her embarrasing her kids she needs to check her ego and get off this show just like that woman from the New Jersey edition.
