The Real Housewives of D.C. star takes on your questions.

Oct 8, 2010 - The Dish0

Another week, another Housewife. We got a visit from Cat last week (look for our Q&A tomorrow!), and this week, Mary is stopping by Bravo HQ. So what burning questions do you have for the D.C. darling? Would she ever let Lynda sage her house? Will she ever turn her back on Safeway? And has she finally figured out how to keep Lolly out of closet? These answers and more could be yours... all you have to do is ask. Post your questions, and we'll bring you our Q&A with Mary next week.

Hi Mary,

I really love your silver cross necklace. I have something similiar, but it's much smaller, made by Chorthip Jewelry Design. Can you please tell me who makes yours? I'm looking for a larger one to go with it! You might like having the smaller one to wear w/ yours....www.chorthip.com

Thank you, Ashley from Houston

Mary, It was love at first site when I saw your home inside as well as out. Wasn't it hard to leave somewhere that you put so much of your heart into? Did it have anything to do with the show? I am wondering what kind of home you bought in DC and if its historic?

Mary: I live in neighboring Great Falls - and I think your home is lovely. However, every time they show its exterior I flinch at its lack of landscaping. Is its austerely understated look deliberate? In my mind's eye I insert several trees, a terrace and expanded beds. Lovely! ;o)

Mary, What's the background of Lolly's name? It's very cute, is it a nickname or short for something?

Mary! I love the name of your daughter, Lolly! How did you come up with or decided on that name? Is it short for something or named after someone? Thanks!

(live in the Rocky Mtns) Is there anyway you could let me know how you get the designers to donate their samples? who to contact etc....would appreciate any advice! You are wonderful! Wish I could of been with you and Jeff on Watch What Happens live! looked like a blast!

You basically lived all your live there in NOVA. Would you ever consider living someplace else other than Virginia and if so, where? Also are you a Redskins fan?

Mary how did you come up with the name "Lolly"? Is it a nickname?

WINE, I think its the WINE that makes Mary so relaxed with her 5 kids. I noticed in some scenes she walks around with a bottle, and even caught a glimpse of a glass of wine in the famous closet!

It's about Mary not having control and not making an impact over Lolly in any meaningful and significant way on teaching her child that IT IS WRONG TO TAKE THINGS THAT DON'T BELONG TO YOU, even if they are mommy's clothes.

First let me say I think your family is wonderful, but that being said have you noticed you always seem to be drinking in your scenes? Is that bad editing or do you really drink that much?

The closet and the clothes aren't the issue right. It's about Lolly understanding you have the right to your own things and to say no! If your like me you take it personally don't all Moms.

Mary, You said that you are interested in being an actress. What would your dream role be?

Mary, I think you have so much class! You and Rich are great examples of style and class. I was wondering will you guys ever confront the Salahi's about your findings regarding Lolly?

I would love to know how Mary and Rich, starting off in life as very young parents who lived with her parents, rose to prominence in the D.C. area. How did Mary end up as the socialite she is today?

I'd also love to know if they, as the very experienced parents of 5 kids, have learned any parenting tricks or tips over the years that they would like to share!

Mary, Love your easy going style at home. Sometimes you seem a little too easy going. How do you stay so calm and did you bring enough to share with the rest of the class?

Lolly obviously doesn't respect the rules of your house or normal social boundaries. She probably was never taught that there would be consequences to her actions.

If you told her she would have to leave if she ever again violated your rules, she may not do it again -- if she thinks you're serious. Are you willing to do that? She may respect you more if you did.

Hi, Mary! You are by far my fave housewife. I marvel at how you're able to do all you do with five children. You and Rich are such a handsome couple. I know you said you've been married over 20 years; how did you and Rich meet?

Will Lolly's paintings be for sale? I would like to see them pictured somewhere. I would be interested in buying one to help her...plus I think they are pretty.

I know that you are dear friends with Lynda. Could you shed some light on Lynda amd Michaele's friendship prior to Michaele becoming Mrs. Salahis? I keep hearing on the show that they have a history and inquiring minds want to know.

Mary, how did you not go crazy on Tarques crazy mouth at the dinner at the "winery"?
