When Monique Samuelsinitially brought up her car accident on Real Housewives of Potomac, she didn’t expect it to turn into a storyline about her drinking. She mentioned it in the context that she is so busy and so tired that she fell asleep behind the wheel before she crashed and fell into a ditch.
Monique wrecked her car after she went to lunch with Ashley Darby– who claimed that Monique had four drinks before driving. Now, Ashley, Gizelle Bryant, and Robyn Dixonare questioning Monique’s drinking habits.
Most of us were raised that there are certain lines we do not cross. One would be don’t drink and drive. Another is not to get into a physical altercation. Lying was the one thing that would really set the adults in my life off. Tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of Potomac took those childhood lessons and drop kicked them straight into the dumpster.
It’s the last night of the trip and Charrisse Jordan drops a bomb that Karen Huger’s husband, Ray, asked her for a divorce. Yes, Karen admits it’s true, but that was a long time ago. Like most couples who have been married for years, they went through a rough patch, but they’re in a much better place now. Of course, the past is never really the past, but the only thing Karen is concerned about right now is Ray’s health. This tax thing has been very stressful. After dinner Karen and Gizelle Bryant whisper together away from the other ladies. Apparently, Ray asking for a divorce was a little more recent than Karen wants to admit. Gizelle tells Karen that they are here for her. Monique Samuels is right when she says in her talking head that these women are friends to no one and doesn’t blame Karen at all for not telling them all her business.
Obviously Karen didn’t just randomly come out with this information. Charrisse Jackson-Jordanrevealed it to the group during the last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac. “Messy” isn’t a strong enough adjective to describe Charrisse. This is especially true since she is now a “Friend of the Housewives” instead of a full-time cast member.
A lot of reality stars were gathered in NYC last night for the OK! Magazine Summer Party! A slew of ladies from the various Real Housewives franchises, the Summer House cast, Teen Mom stars, and more were spotted at the event together.
Buckle up friends because this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac was a wild ride. Monique Samuels may have gone fly fishing instead of clay pigeon shooting, but she spent most of her time dodging verbal bullets. Karen Huger is bringing her “A” game to the show even though she refuses to participate in anything sporty or athletic. Candiace Dillard is still fighting with Charrisse Jordan and Ashley Darby is putting out all her dirty laundry (with the exception of a little something that may or may not allegedly happened in a London hotel). Gizelle Bryant brought her usual snarky commentary which I personally laugh at even though it’s everything I’ve told my children not to do. Finally, Robyn Dixon was… help me out people… she’s… very sporty.
We start back where we left off last week: At the luncheon in Nemacolins Resort where Candiace and Gizelle are having the “you’re dumb no you’re dumb” fight. Thankfully, Ashley hops up from the table and decides that it’s time to show the women their rooms. Monique is still a little toasted from her bottle of wine on the way up, so she doesn’t care what room she gets just as long as it has clean sheets, a soft pillow, and I’m guessing a bottle of aspirin for the next morning. Gizelle and Karen aren’t tired though, and they meet up to gossip. Neither really understands Candiace at all, but they both think her calling Charrisse ‘Geriatric Grandma’ was pretty funny. Sidebar: I really like when Gizelle and Karen talk like this together and was sorry to hear Karen say on WWHL that they are now enemies.
