Real Housewives of Potomac

Teresa-Giudice-Kenya-Moore-Ashley-Darby

Unfortunately, Brandi Glanville was unable to make it for the Vagina Monologues performances in Michigan with Teresa Giudice and nemesis Kenya Moore. I was really looking forward to hearing about Brandi and Kenya’s interaction, but Ashley Darby ended up taking Brandi’s place.

It’s always interesting when Housewives from different cities are in the same place and this just seems like the most random grouping of ladies. I would love to see some videos of the women reading some dramatic monologue during their performances. Or better yet some footage of the Housewives hanging out between shows. Now that would be a show worth watching.

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF POTOMAC MONIQUE SAMUELS

I will never understand why people go on reality TV if they plan to be shady with their financial situation. Case in point, Karen Huger and this mysterious real estate situation on Real Housewives of Potomac. Nothing about it makes any sense. For someone who goes out of her way to boast about her wealth and status, getting tight lipped after an overnight move is highly suspicious and Monique Samuels is just as confused as I am.

What’s with all the secrecy, Karen? Why be so shady in such a public forum? How does it make any sense? Will we ever get any answers? Most likely not. It seems like Karen only has something to say when it comes to other people’s business, but never with her own.

Ashley Darby

In her Real Housewives of Potomac blog this week, Ashley Darby breaks down the conclusion and the aftermath of the Bermuda trip.

On Charrisse Jackson-Jordan confronting Karen Huger, Ashley shares, “Come through with the laser tongue, Mrs. Jackson! I had no idea Karen and Charrisse were feuding so hard, and I knew gosh darn well it wasn’t over planning a girls’ trip to Bermuda. This was meant to be a time of bonding and getting away from the pressures we are all dealing with at home, but the longstanding drama between these two showed through. I think Charrisse and Karen think they are big fish who are fighting for dominance in a small pond.”

Karen Huger has been revamping her image on season two of The Real Housewives Of Potomac as a kinder, less etiquette-obsessed version of the blow hard we all snarked on last year. And it’s been a welcome change! But the trip to Bermuda brought the old Karen out of the shadows to box with her cast mates – most notably, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan – over who’s really the Grand Dame of this group. According to Karen, she will never lose her title, no matter what Ashley Darby or the other ladies insinuate.

In her blog, Karen calls out Charrisse’s lies, explains how her move went (but still withholds details), and comments on Ashley’s accusations about her financial status. First, Karen says Charrisse lied about the gift baskets Karen sent to everyone’s rooms in order to make a big stink about it on camera. “Can someone please roll back the tape? Charrisse knew about the gift baskets and she knew she would be receiving one from me as well. Charrisse’s speech to the girls in the hallway was yet another lie she told just to manipulate and mislead the girls.”

Real Housewives of Potomac recap

When this Real Housewives of Potomac season first started, it seemed like Gizelle Bryant vs. Charrisse Jackson-Jordan was going to be the feud in focus, but Charrisse has a new sparring partner and it’s the self-proclaimed Grand Dame of Potomac (who doesn’t even live in Potomac) Karen Huger.

I was more than happy to let the Gizelle and Charrisse drama go, but I started to miss it when Charrisse and Karen started butting heads about hosting a cast vacation. So. Stupid. Are there not better things to argue about? Clearly there was an overload of projection in this situation, but on my end it just made for some pretty annoying television.

Even though Karen Huger has a lot of questions to answer for in regard to her shady financial situation, she refused to truly address any of the speculation when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Monique Samuels. Instead of coming clean about some obvious inconsistencies, she just deflected and threw shade at the other Real Housewives of Potomac cast members, of course.

I don’t know why Karen would step into the club house a couple hours after that episode aired.  I mean she had to know those questions were coming, but clearly she didn’t care. It’s Karen’s world and we’re all just living in it- or at least that’s how she’s acting.

Last week on The Real Housewives of Potomac, we left Grand Dame Karen Huger in the middle of an off camera (but not off mic) tirade about vacation planning nemesis Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. Like most tirades, it didn’t make a hell of a lot of sense – something about screwing firemen and New Jersey harlots. Either way, Karen is pretty fired up at Charrisse, even though Robyn Dixon is the one who prompted this by calling Karen a hypocrite for preaching unity on this trip and then excluding half of the women on her sailboat excursion earlier that day. Why anyone would be upset that they missed out on clinging to some netting on the side of a damn plastic boat in the middle of the ocean is beyond me, but I guess it was the principal.

Despite the snub, Charrisse is determined to make her day of hosting a success and has arranged a sunset cruise for all. According to Cha Cha, she “made some calls” and determined that cruises are how the Bermudan elite spend their time so ummm, where are the Bermudan elite you speak of? The boat is filled with random dudes and I can’t tell if they are just some guys production offered a free boat ride to or Cha Cha also placed a call to a local escort agency. One of them immediately eyes up Robyn and like a true gentleman, has Charrisse call her over to him while he stays planted in his seat, shaved legs firmly crossed. No surprise that Robyn isn’t into him.

Real Housewives of Potomac reunion seating chart

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.
