To be honest, I did not want Real Housewives of Potomac to come back for a second season. The first season was just a bunch of blah episodes with story lines I could not get invested in. The second season started out the same way, but things are heating up and they have not even filmed the reunion episodes yet.
Mainly, I want to see what happens with Karen Huger. She’s been on the sideline so far, commenting and shading other people’s situations, but she was a major part of the trailer for the season. It looks like she has some sort of shady financial/real estate situation and I am excited to see how that all unfolds. The story line is a total #HousewifeMove if I’ve ever seen one, but there’s just always something intriguing about people who seem to be deceptive about their finances and have the nerve to go on reality television.
When this season started, I figured Gizelle Bryant and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan would have been on opposite couches with Andy Cohen in between them. In case you haven’t noticed, sitting next to Andy is a big deal.
The seating chart actually indicates a lot – the people who are next to Andy are typically the people who are most central to the season. This makes me think that things really go south for Karen toward the end of the season because she hasn’t given us too much so far. I’m also pretty shocked Gizelle and Charrisse are sitting on the same couch, but I guess they have younger, annoying fish to fry.
Obviously Robyn Dixon is on the same couch as Gizelle and Charrisse. Those are her girls. Plus, she’s really not here for Ashley Darby’s meddling, so I get why she’s all the way across the room with Karen and Monique Samuels. Monique and Gizelle argued a few times this season, but as a first year Housewife, there’s no chance that she would sit anywhere other than the furthest seat on the sofa. A more prestigious spot takes time.
It may seem pretty silly to view a seating chart as “news” and maybe it really is, but if you’re into this show and you want to know how the season is going to end up, the assignments in this chart are a pretty good indication of where the battle lines are drawn. Now we just have to wait for the episodes to air. Let’s hope the ladies really bring it and solidify Potomac’s place in this franchise.
