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 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!
