For the most part, I forgot that Charrisse Jackson-Jordan was a part of Real Housewives of Potomac Season 1. And on a related note, I almost forgot about Real Housewives of Potomac Season 1 until they started showing previews for the second season. She really had no story line other than making thinly veiled excuses for her never-present husband. Then it was like a light bulb went off in her head during the reunion taping and she realized that she actually had to share her life if she was going to be asked back. That’s probably why she admitted her marital troubles at the last possible second- when they were making their concluding toast. And this what saved her spot on RHOP.
That and the fact that Gizelle Bryant was talking trash about her alleged affair with a fireman in between seasons. This had to be beyond humiliating for Charrisse, but the truth is that it probably secured her Real Housewife title. So in actuality she should be low key grateful that Gizelle is such a shit stirrer. This feud has made her relevant and breathed some much-needed life in to the second most lackluster installment of the Real Housewives franchise (Dallas being the most irrelevant- obviously).
We are kicking off this week’s social media pics roundup with two fan favorites, Jeff Lewis and Dorinda Medley. Dorinda shared the snapshot above on Instagram, adding, “Nothing like catching up with Jeff Lewis over a meal to start off my LA trip on the right foot!”
So far, Karen Huger has stayed on the periphery of the drama this season on Real Housewives of Potomac. She’s taking on that (faux) peacemaker role with some subtle instigation. Did she throw Robyn Dixon under the bus when she broadcast their private conversation to the entire cast? Or was she just putting her feelings out in the open so they can be resolved?
It’s debatable, but for the most part, Karen is pretty unscathed this season as she tries her hardest to be the queen of Potomac- a show that the Real Housewives fandom has not fully embraced. And that includes having opinions about everything and everyone.
I have always lived for Sonja Morgan and her antics, but I don’t know what she’s thinking this season on Real Housewives of New York. She’s still not over Dorinda Medley rescinding her invite to that Christmas party in the Berkshires last year. She is not strong enough to battle Dorinda. This is a major mistake. On the bright side, I’m sure Dorinda is going to bless us all with epic one-liners when she shuts her down.
Not only that, but Sonja is weirdly confused that Luann de Lesseps doesn’t want her at her wedding after trashing her relationship and constantly bringing up that she had a sexual relationship with her man. I’m not shipping the Luann and Tom D’Agostino relationship either, but there’s no reason that Sonja should have been invited to that wedding.
In the video, Craig is alarmed that when his nanny shows up at a polo match with Kensie and Saint, Thomas doesn’t acknowledge their presence to say hello, despite Kensie yelling for “daddy.” Craig suggests that Thomas go over to give her a kiss, but he declines. Craig then asks the others at the polo match if they think it’s odd the way Thomas Ravenel seems to blow off his kids, and there is a comment by Landonthat perhaps it’s a southern-northern difference in parenting styles.
