Most of us were raised that there are certain lines we do not cross. One would be don’t drink and drive. Another is not to get into a physical altercation. Lying was the one thing that would really set the adults in my life off. Tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Potomac took those childhood lessons and drop kicked them straight into the dumpster.
It’s the last night of the trip and Charrisse Jordan drops a bomb that Karen Huger’s husband, Ray, asked her for a divorce. Yes, Karen admits it’s true, but that was a long time ago. Like most couples who have been married for years, they went through a rough patch, but they’re in a much better place now. Of course, the past is never really the past, but the only thing Karen is concerned about right now is Ray’s health. This tax thing has been very stressful. After dinner Karen and Gizelle Bryant whisper together away from the other ladies. Apparently, Ray asking for a divorce was a little more recent than Karen wants to admit. Gizelle tells Karen that they are here for her. Monique Samuels is right when she says in her talking head that these women are friends to no one and doesn’t blame Karen at all for not telling them all her business.
TLC has made Sunday nights great again because 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After is finally back in rotation. It’s time to sit in front of our TVs each week for two full hours, openly judging the spectacle of crazy laid lovingly out before us. And I could NOT be more excited. Does it take a genius to put this show together? I’m gonna go with “YES, OBVIOUSLY!” because these producers somehow survive everything from an unhinged Anfisa storming straight at them to practically being machete’d to death in the Amazon – all in the name of delivering stellar content season after delightful season. (Just as a reminder, the regular season of 90 Day Fiance is still on its way for 2018 – this “Happily Ever After” series follows couples we’ve seen before in regular 90DF seasons past).
Alright, last night’s episode was a delicious two-hour catastrophe previewing the horror show to come, so let’s get to it! Here’s where we find each couple since they last graced us with their presence.
Southern Charm New Orleans has been a wonderful addition to my Sunday night. Jeff Charleston is so damn nice. All of these men are. I’ll go to one of their guys’ nights and promise not to complain when naked ladies make an appearance. Last night’s episode was no exception as to how kind, fun, and level-headed these gentlemen are.
After a thankfully uneventful night at the Myrtles, the crew is packing their bags. Jon Moody was missing his sock when he woke up, but the noises that freaked out Tamica Lee and Barry Smith were courtesy of their friend Susan and cousin Jared. Justin Reese completely ghosted with girlfriend Kelsey to spend the night at a hotel. The group convenes for lunch, and Justin isn’t scared to admit he’s terrified of ghosts. As Justin continues to say he’s fine, and Tamica takes the opportunity to share a story about her father dying of a heart attack at a young age. Barry interrupts to ask her to pass some sauce, and she is livid. While it is rude behavior, I don’t think Barry was listening to his wife’s conversation given the large number of people at the long table.
Okay. I’m gonna need a Lisa Rinna adult diaper because I am about to pee myself waiting for the premiere of the one – the ONLY – trainwrecky goodness of the 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After premiere. Holy Baht-man, you guys. Based on the trailer alone, it looks to be epic.
This season is stacked with cuckoo couples and disaster drama as fresh a a Family Pedro plate of chicken feet. In homage to Mother Chantel, I think we can all agree: It’s about to get a little bit more stupider up in here. And I am totally on board with that.
Obviously Karen didn’t just randomly come out with this information. Charrisse Jackson-Jordanrevealed it to the group during the last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac. “Messy” isn’t a strong enough adjective to describe Charrisse. This is especially true since she is now a “Friend of the Housewives” instead of a full-time cast member.
