Since we didn’t have a new episode of Real Housewives of Potomac last week, I almost (key word, ALMOST) forgot about everything that happened in the last episode with Ashley Darby and her scorched earth approach to gossip. But two casualties that are not about to forget anytime soon are Robyn Dixon and Gizelle Bryant, who let’s face it, doesn’t really have a dog in the fight but just can’t steer clear of a chance to use her highly entertaining shade anywhere she can. And yes, I do find Gizelle to be petty and mean girl-ish but she really does make me laugh so I can’t help but have a soft spot for her whole overblown persona. What would the show be without her?
But back to the beef. Ashley has been running her mouth a little too much about what’s possibly going on with Robyn’s marriage/not marriage to Juan and OK, it is a little weird the extent of her interest in the matter. Why does she care if Robyn gets played a hundred times from Tuesday? Charrisse Jackson-Jordan and Gizelle also tried talking to Robyn about her situation but like true friends, they did it privately and while offering understanding and support.
I’m all for using reality TV to do something significant and spread awareness for causes that matter. With that said, I also have to admit that the last Real Housewives of New York episode was rather forgettable. As far as the story lines go, pretty much nothing happened. Again, I want to emphasize that I think it’s great that the whole cast was genuinely charitable, but the episode itself was just a little blah. Nevertheless, Bethenny Frankel had some interesting things to say about Ramona Singer after the episode aired.
Of course I’m happy that there wasn’t actually a scandal disrupting a charity event, but maybe there could have been a hook up or some humorous quotes to get me through the episode? Is that asking for too much? Apparently so.
As much as the cast tries to make Kathryn Dennis the villain on Southern Charm, at this point the audience has really turned against Landon Clements. From flirting with everyone, to being malicious toward Kathryn, to that weird sexual tension with her and Thomas Ravenel, the list of off-putting behaviors just keeps on growing. When she joined the show, Shep Rose had a thing for her, she didn’t go for it, and eventually she professed her love for him because she had no story line on her own. Now, there seems to be a lot of tension between Landon and Shep and I’m not talking about the sexual kind.
Shep (just like the rest of the viewers) is not a fan of Landon’s “I’m better than you” attitude. Ever since he called her out for her obnoxious comment about hanging with “billionaires” and “not millionaires” it’s clear that she’s been trying to instigate him.
The Real Housewives of Potomac returns tonight! To refresh your memory on the last episode from two weeks ago, we have Gizelle Bryant weighing in on getting kicked out of Monique Samuels‘ house – twice, and sharing her thoughts on Ashley Darby‘s meddling and more. As usual, she doesn’t mince words.
Gizelle shares that she didn’t care one bit about being asked to leave Monique‘s house a second time, “I actually had one foot in the car and the key in the ignition when I got “kicked” out of the backyard hoedown. I love spending time with my girlfriends, laughing, and drinking but I don’t want to do it while being micromanaged by people who don’t know what a joke looks or smells like.”
To kick off this week’s Instagram roundup, we have Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel promoting her new line of Skinnygirl lunch meats. “People keep telling me to eat a sandwich,” snarked Bethenny. “Now what?”
Last week, the former Real Housewives Of Miami star was spotted on a date with Nico, where she was not wearing her wedding ring. What she was wearing was thigh-high boots cause a girl has a message to send.
