As far as reunions go, The Real Housewives of Potomac are starting off slow. Sure, there was plenty of arguing and we even had a few false accusations and one reference to someone getting their ass beat. But for the most part, the ladies decided to use part one of the reunion as a warm up.
Before we go any further, let’s get to what really matters: rating their outfits from best to worst. I know y’all think I’m too hard on Miss Monique FIVE HOUSES Samuels and tonight will be no exception, but I have to give it to her as the best dressed of the night. Sure, the skirt of her ice skater dress was a tad extra, but the color was beautiful on her and her hair and makeup were flawless. I’m going to give Ashley Darby a close second for beautiful hair and makeup but had to deduct points for that dress that was one structured chest strap short of being found in the Star Trek costume closet.
Part one of The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion is upon us! Tonight the ladies of Potomac will rehash the drama of the past season and hopefully some lingering questions will be answered. We’re looking at you, Karen Huger!
In her blog, Ashley explains why she ended up attending Karen’s “exotic” anniversary party after almost not being invited (and all but begging to be): “I would have had a serious case of fomo (fear of missing out) if everyone else got to see Karen’s new digs and I didn’t. Even still there were dangling question marks just waiting for answers.”
Above: former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Alexis Bellino shared, “Feeling very patriotic today. I love America. I love our freedom. I love our military who protect us every day. I love red, white, and blue! (I I luv this $60 swimsuit!) Happy 4th everyone! Be safe! #godblessAmerica #happy4thofjuly”
Congrats, viewers! We survived season two of Real Housewives of Potomac and oh my, how things have changed around these parts. In season one, etiquette as outdated as Karen Huger’s kitchen was the name of the game and she was the Grand Dame of it all. Charrisse Jackson-Jordan was just starting to get an inkling that her husband not showing up for months on end might mean her marriage is on the rocks. Ashley Darby was still having regular sex with her sugar daddy husband and only using his money for shopping as opposed to running a restaurant into the ground. Robyn Dixon was pretending that her marriage/not marriage was totally normal. Ok, well that hasn’t changed. Neither has Gizelle Bryant hilariously sizing up any newcomers who have the nerve to be younger and have more money than she does. Enter Monique FIVE HOUSES Samuels, who is exactly that – younger, richer and oh, relentlessly braggy about everything in her life.
Like most viewers, I wasn’t thrilled when I heard that Real Housewives of Potomac was returning for a second season, but it’s definitely way better than most of us expected. But some of the ladies are trying way too hard to get screen time. Robyn Dixon has opened up about the difference between filming Season 1 and Season 2.
She even calls out costar Ashley Darby for stirring the pot this season in a quest to make the show more interesting. She explains how Karen Huger is acting differently after Season 1 and she reveals some shocking information about Juan Dixon’s family.
As the Real Housewives of Potomac comes to a close, it’s clear that most of the cast is gunning for Karen Huger. Charrisse Jackson-Jordan had beef with her over hosting a Bermuda trip, which is a dumb and boring story line, and now everyone is coming at the self-proclaimed Grand Dame of Potomac for her mysterious real estate situation.
The finale is approaching and the preview shows Ashley Darby leading the cast to come at Karen for her shady finances. As per usual, Karen is acting like she isn’t bothered by any of these people and their antics.
It’s always interesting when Housewives from different cities are in the same place and this just seems like the most random grouping of ladies. I would love to see some videos of the women reading some dramatic monologue during their performances. Or better yet some footage of the Housewives hanging out between shows. Now that would be a show worth watching.
