Real Housewives of Potomac

The Real Housewives of Potomac Recap:

I prefer my Housewives like I prefer my Martinis: Dirty, salty, shaken, and served with a twist. This week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Potomac was not that. Well, the garden party had its moments, but this installment seemed a little too real for comfort.

It’s the day after Monique Samuels’ party for Chris. Everyone is hanging out just doing their own thing. Robyn Dixon is playing football with her two cute little boys, and Ashley Darby is watching her man Michael break the sound barrier on his stationary bike. Gizelle Bryant calls Karen Huger to apologize, but Karen lets it go to voice mail and then surprise! Karen’s voice mail is full. Refusing defeat, she texts Karen saying that she hopes they’re still friends.

Ashley Darby Thinks Karen Huger Is So Inauthentic That It’s Hard To Empathize With Her

At this point, Season 3 of Real Housewives of Potomac is all about Karen Huger’s refusal to be open about her family’s financial problems.

A couple of the women empathize with Karen, but Ashley Darby is not one of them. She’s not buying what Karen is selling and she has no qualms calling out the self-proclaimed Grand Dame of Potomac.

Gizelle Bryant Claims Monique Samuels Has Her Brother Running The Fan Page That Trashed Robyn Dixon; Says Ashley Darby “Consistently Hits Below The Belt For No Reason”

That last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac wasn’t an easy one for Robyn Dixon. She was miffed when she saw a meme about herself on a Monique Samuels fan page- which she accused Monique of running herself. Ashley Darby came at Robyn with even more judgments about her non-relationship with ex-husband Juan Dixon.

On top of that, Robyn’s go-to girl in the cast, Gizelle Bryant, wasn’t around for all the drama because she was at an event in the Hamptons. This means that Robyn had to fend for herself- at the time. Now Gizelle is coming to her friend’s defense.

Karen Huger

At this point, Season 3 of Real Housewives of Potomac might as well be The Karen Huger Show. Sure, there are other things happening, but all roads lead back to Karen Huger. Even if Karen isn’t in a scene or at an event, she is usually the main topic of conversation.

It’s easy to look at this as good thing and it’s also easy to view it as bad thing.  So what does the self-proclaimed Grand Dame of Potomac think about her husband Ray Huger’s financial problems being the main story line on the show?

Monique Samuels Thinks Robyn Dixon Is “Placing Her Own Issues Onto Other People”; Says She Gave Candiace Dillard’s Fiancé Permission To Jump Off The Balcony At Her Party

It probably wasn’t the best idea for Robyn Dixon to confront Monique Samuels at Monique’s party in her own home during the last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac. She could have just called her out during a one-on-one lunch that they could have expensed to the production company.

It also didn’t make sense for Robyn to beef with Monique over something that was posted on a fan page, but then again, this is a Housewives show, so it would have been a boring episode if everyone just had a fun time at the party. Robyn’s partner in crime Gizelle Bryant did not like Monique from the second she came on the scene last season, so maybe Robyn and Monique just dislike each other by association? This just seems like a pretty random feud.

Karen Huger Says Robyn Dixon “Holds The Crown Of Two-Faced” On Real Housewives Of Potomac

The last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac started out with the conclusion of Karen Huger’s “press conference,” but the focus of the drama shifted to Robyn Dixon for the rest of the episode. Robyn got into it with Monique Samuels at Monique’s party in her own home and Ashley Darby at the same event.

Karen was probably relieved to have someone else in the line of fire, but her refusal to fess up to financial problems is still the main story line of the season.

Candiace Dillard Says Gizelle Bryant Is “Hobby-Less And Without Couth” & Robyn Dixon “Cosigns On Gizelle’s Cruel Bullying”

We’ve only seen Candiace Dillard in two episodes of Real Housewives of Potomac and she hasn’t gotten into it with any of her costars on screen, but she’s really bringing the heat on social media and in her blogs.

Right now Candiace is the only one standing up for Karen Huger in the wake of her family’s financial issues. She’s also not afraid to come at Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon. At this point in the season she hasn’t met Gizelle and her sole interaction with Robyn was watching her argue with Monique Samuels and Ashley Darby at party, but Candiace is living in the present and has no issue unleashing her opinions- even if we haven’t seen her dynamic with Robyn and Gizelle play out on screen.

Real Housewives of Potomac Recap: Send In The Clowns

Sometimes a Housewife has a really bad day. This week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Potomac was Robyn Dixon’s turn. Robyn is like a boxer who comes out swinging and yelling at the opponent “Hit me!” with her chin sticking out. And when they do it, she’s shocked and can’t understand why they came at her.

We start back at last week’s press conference where Karen Huger is deflecting questions and declaring that she is shutting it down. Robyn is still yelling at Karen to tell the truth. Gizelle Bryant takes one last swing at Karen on the way out by showing the back of her t-shirt that says, “#freeuncleben” and “#taxreform”. Karen yells that Gizelle is tacky as hell, and I have to say it wasn’t Gizelle’s finest moment. Monique Samuels decides that Gizelle came to clown around and looked like a clown in her 99 cent shirt…and Robyn follows. Karen and her assistant get in the car to leave, but Robyn has to take one last dig at her. She taps on the window of Karen’s car and asks, “Why are you so mad?” Come on Robyn. We all know you aren’t that dense.
