According to Bravo, “The two-part reunion concludes with a mixture of insults and apologies when the husbands join the ladies on stage. Juan finally tells his side of the story and expresses his feelings about his relationship with Robyn. Monique attempts to put Gizelle in her place once and for all, and she also drops a sassy freestyle rap that ruffles everyone’s feathers. Charrisse drops the ultimate “tea” about Karen, while Ashley reveals an explosive secret about her and Michael that drops jaws.”
Even though Robyn Dixon was relatively cool with the rest of the ladies on Real Housewives of Potomac this season, the first part of the reunion ended up being all about her. Of course they also “addressed” Karen Huger‘s shady move and got no plausible explanation for it.
Gizelle responds to Karen’s claims that she moved to be closer to her parents, even hoping that her parents might come live with her one day. “I DO NOT understand Karen’s house moving explanation at all what-so-EVER! It was very confusing. Are her parents packing their bags and getting ready to move into this Great Falls house? Aren’t her parents very old and need to be cared for? Would they even care where they live? Again, CONFUSING!”
As far as reunions go, The Real Housewives of Potomac are starting off slow. Sure, there was plenty of arguing and we even had a few false accusations and one reference to someone getting their ass beat. But for the most part, the ladies decided to use part one of the reunion as a warm up.
Before we go any further, let’s get to what really matters: rating their outfits from best to worst. I know y’all think I’m too hard on Miss Monique FIVE HOUSES Samuels and tonight will be no exception, but I have to give it to her as the best dressed of the night. Sure, the skirt of her ice skater dress was a tad extra, but the color was beautiful on her and her hair and makeup were flawless. I’m going to give Ashley Darby a close second for beautiful hair and makeup but had to deduct points for that dress that was one structured chest strap short of being found in the Star Trek costume closet.
Part one of The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion is upon us! Tonight the ladies of Potomac will rehash the drama of the past season and hopefully some lingering questions will be answered. We’re looking at you, Karen Huger!
Pretty much every Real Housewives show has a cast member with financial issues and a shady real estate situation. On Real Housewives of Potomac, Karen Huger is the one taking on that role with her secret move to Great Falls and her insistence that her husband is the “black Bill Gates.”
Nothing adds up, and Karen‘s costars accuse her of lying and living way outside of her means. In her blogs, on-camera interviews, and even in her interviews after filming, Karen adamantly denies money issues and just claims to want her privacy… even though she is the one who signed up to share her life with a reality TV show. Now she is teasing the mystery will be resolved when the reunion airs.
In her blog, Ashley explains why she ended up attending Karen’s “exotic” anniversary party after almost not being invited (and all but begging to be): “I would have had a serious case of fomo (fear of missing out) if everyone else got to see Karen’s new digs and I didn’t. Even still there were dangling question marks just waiting for answers.”
Even though Karen Huger is obsessed with discussing her self-proclaimed position as the Grand Dame of Potomac, it is obvious to anyone with eyes that her financial situation is beyond shady. It is clear that she is overcompensating for something and apparently this something is actually millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.
Apparently, her husband Ray Huger, who she has the audacity to refer to as “the black Bill Gates,” and his company owe millions in back taxes. That definitely lines up with her story line from this Real Housewives of Potomac season.
