I’m not gonna lie: I love me some WhoGonnaCheckMeBoo!Sheree Whitfield and was thrilled to see her back on the Real Housewives of Atlanta this season, even if it was in a diminished capacity as “friend of” the cast. Sheree says she loved being back too, calling this season of RHOA her favorite ever. Whether it’s moving toward reconciliation with ex-hubby Bob Whitfield, keeping the drama on a low simmer rather than a steady boil, or just looking totally fabulous (which she decidedly does!) this season, Sheree calls it all a “full circle” moment for her. Aww, man! Give the girl her dang peach back already, Bravo!
In her blog, Sheree first fills us in on her situation with Bob: “Bob and I are working on getting to know each other again. We both have grown a lot and are in a different space than we were when we were married. We are in the process of relearning each other. I can say that we are happy with how things are going and our children our happy. #LifeIsGood for #TheWhitfields.”
Robyn Dixon is easily the most laid back housewife ever to grace the Bravo network! And her take on the latest drama to unfold on the Real Housewives of Potomac is as chill as her. Robyn does open up in her blog this week about the betrayal that caused her financial troubles, which changed her life forever. She also comments on Gizelle Bryant’s grilling of Katie Rost about drugs and her feelings about Ashley Darby’s hubby crashing their girls’ trip. Spoiler alert on each of these fronts: She’s taking it all in stride.
Robyn begins with some background on her husband Juan’s friend, who basically stole their money right out from under them. Feeling compelled to share in Charrisse Jordan’s “Sister Circle,” she admits, “The pain and hurt that I felt in 2012 was beyond any other hurt that I have ever felt. And although the loss of money really created huge problems for us, it was the evil lies and deception that hurt the most. On top of the devastation from the loss of money and the loss of a friendship (he was even a groomsman in our wedding), I experienced the shock of my life when that same friend took his own life in order to avoid the consequences of his actions. This truly was the most difficult time of my life.”
This week it seemed like Gizelle Bryant had it out for castmate and self-proclaimed socialite, Katie Rost. But when Katie confronted Gizelle about her shady interrogations, Gizelle uncharacteristically backed down. The Real Housewives of Potomac stars are not done with their beef yet, however, and have taken to their blogs to rehash the drama!
Gizelle first calls Katie out for playing turtle on their girls’ weekend at Ashley Darby’s beach house: i.e. hiding in her shell the whole time. She snarks, “Katie spent the majority of the time locked away in her room, or the bathroom or any corner away from the group. In order for me to be ‘mean’ to Katie I first would need to have an FBI investigation to find her.”
The ladies hit the beach last week on the Real Housewives of Potomac, and the air conditioning at Ashley Darby’s beach house wasn’t the only thing that broke down. But last night, the girls’ trip turned into a Plus One event when Ashley’s husband Michael decided to crash. And Karen Huger did not take too kindly to this etiquette breach!
We pick up on the couches, where the ladies are sharing some personal issues with the group, at the prodding of Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. Robyn Dixon confesses that her husband Juan’s best friend took a lot of money from them in a ponzi scheme, which pretty much decimated their financial capital. Robyn cries, noting the trust issues she carries around now as a result of being betrayed. Ashley reflects on what a floating turd she now looks like for spreading gossip about Robyn’s bankruptcy in the past.
Claiming she’s glad she missed Erika Girardi’sMost Awkward Dinner Party On The Planet, Eileen does wonder why Kathryn Edwards thinks it’s okay to comment on Lisa R’s eating habits? Or why in God’s name Kathryn got so bizarrely confrontational with her hosts? Eileen ponders, “I just don’t get her behavior. It only got weirder as Kathryn continued to get aggressive and argumentative throughout dinner. Even going so far as to take on the host!”
Lisa first discusses her reaction to Katie Maloney requesting to use her home for her engagement party. “Of all the places in Los Angeles, why is Katie asking me to borrow my garden for her engagement party?” ponders Lisa. “I don’t want to have their engagement party at my house. I don’t have any party at my house but I kind of do have a very soft spot for Katie and Schwartzyso if anybody was going to ask me, I suppose they’re the only people I might possibly say yes to.”
Porsha Williams has given us Naked Hair, but in this week’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, she served up some Naked Lingerie. (And her nearly Naked Self!) Gushing about her new business venture, Porsha shares, “I really wanted to create a visual for our customer! A lot of times women only think you can wear lingerie in the bedroom. However with Naked Lingerie we have a wide variety of sexy pieces for you to enjoy in whatever you are doing at home!” Like cleaning up doggie poop?
Porsha says her lingerie line is “designed for the everyday woman; no matter what size you are, you are fabulous and we have pieces to accentuate and flatter your figure!” Awww, Porsha. Can’t hate a housewife for her hustle! Go Get It Girl!
