The Real Housewives of Potomac have stepped up their game this season, and the theme of the women’s antics seems to be just general messiness. I think this crew takes the franchise’s cake for pot-stirring and smack talk, yet they are all contractually obligated able to share some laughs on a Bravo funded vacation. At least it’s fun to watch!
The drama of late has festered along the backdrop of several charity events, and if you think these women are above throwing shade when it comes to good causes, you would be sorely mistaken. At Karen Huger’s Alzheimer’s fundraiser, she kicked out Gizelle Bryant and Robin Dixon, and Gizelle managed to get into it with Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. Of course, doesn’t Gizelle get into it with everyone? The Word on the Street has some words of her own for Karen, Charrisse, and Monique Samuels.
Have there ever been more frivolous fights on The Real Housewives of Potomac than the ones we witnessed tonight? Okay, season 1 had its moments, but the ladies were new to reality TV and could be forgiven for rookie mistakes. But several scenes tonight top my list of stupid stuff to fight about.
Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon are on a mission to deliver a message to Karen Huger. I’m not sure exactly what their message is other than Robyn wants to say “Liar, liar, pants on fire”, and Gizelle wants to see Karen embarrassed. I’m getting Déjà vu from last year when the Green-Eyed Bandits crashed in to OZ while Ashley Darby was working and Robyn came at her, finger in face, screaming that Ashley needed to stop talking about Juan.
Although viewers couldn’t see any of the actual birth process, the camera crew was stationed behind a curtain recording the entire process, which according to Alexandra, was a violation. She also cites that she was humiliated by Jeff’s inappropriate remarks.
Jeff acknowledges that his comments about Alexandra’s vagina, among others, were “a poor attempt at humor” but maintains that he and Gage Edward are “devastated” by the lawsuit because of the negative connotation it gives their daughter’s birth, and also because they considered Alexandra a friend.
Last night we saw the dimmest minuscule smidgeon of a brain cell fire in Nicole’s head. Why? Because she finally got a half-clue about Azannot being the stand up guy she thought he was for the past 3 years. You know – the guy who’s all too happy to sit on his unemployed buttocks all day, renewing his gym membership and going out to midnight coffee bars on Nicole’s Starbucks paycheck? Well, maybe not just on Nicole’s paycheck…because it seems Azan has other fish on his hook. And they might not demand as many french fries or shoulder sniffs as Nicole?
At the beginning of the show, Nicole gets a call mid-interview that alerts her about voicemails leaked online that sound very much like Azan telling someone he wants to kiss them, that “the kiss was good” and “I know you want it.” <dry heave> It’s unmistakably him, except he sounds breathy and gross in some sort of attempt at sexytimes talk. Much like Annie’s “boom boom” sex speech, we can never un-hear this. KILL ME.
After seeing how upset Robyn was, does Karen regret attending Monique‘s event? “Robyn Dixon knows that my doubling booking both she and Monique Samuels‘ event was just that, a simple double booking due to lack of communication among we ladies. I offered both ladies to attend both events. Monique was receptive to this but not Robyn. Robyn insisted I choose to attend her event and cancel on Monique, that was not going to happen.”
Last week left us with Nicole shopping for wedding gowns (that she expects her mother to buy) in anticipation of her Moroccan wedding to Azan. Only one hitch: Has Azan actually AGREED to this plan yet? Because correct me if I’m wrong, but our man never actually said, “Yes, please! Come on over here and let’s get married!” Did he? Are we missing something?
