The countdown is on – 62 days until the premiere of the Real Housewives of Potomac. Not only are we excited about new women (to love and love to hate) in new cities, but we’re also looking forward to the Real Housewives franchise getting back to basics (we’re holding you to it, Andy!).
Last week, Andy Cohen dished on what viewers should expect from the Real Housewives of Potomac and the Real Housewives of Dallas. “Both Dallas and Potomac remind me of really early Orange County and New York,” said Andy. “It reminds me of early Housewives. It’s the way they communicate. It’s about how they live their lives, and it’s about families. It’s very grounded, and it harkens back to early Housewives for me. Both of them. It’s really interesting.”
Bravo released, “Just up the river from our nation’s capital lies a hidden gem – Potomac, Maryland. Its rolling hills, gated mansions, sophisticated prep schools, and exclusive country clubs all serve to keep the area invitation only. Sprinkled throughout this community are a handful of old-line, wealthy African-American families who have historically broken racial barriers to provide a life of privilege for their children.”
The Real Housewives of Potomac follows the lives of Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Gizelle Bryant, Katie Rost, Ashley Darby, and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. “In a town where entry is granted only through class, pedigree, and lineage, how far will these ladies go to secure their spot at the top of this prestigious circle?” teased Bravo. Look below to see the cast photos/bios and watch the sneak peek trailer.
“Real Housewives of Potomac is the show you never saw coming, and it is going to take everyone by surprise!,” said Andy. “As for Real Housewives of Dallas, it is a natural extension of the franchise with a Southern twist that ‘y’all’ will enjoy.” A shout out to our readers who guessed “Dallas” in our Poll Party!
Jim’s panties have been in a bunch since, well, since the day we met him. But, in relation to this story, since Teresa Checks In aired. One of his many issues is that RHONJseason 7 is on hold. “It is BS that the entire cast, especially my wife, had their filming put on hold because Tre and Joe committed several felonies and [Teresa is] sitting in jail,” said the man who recently tweeted, “We are not coming back, do not need money or want fame.” So, he cares, why?!
The Real Housewives franchise keeps chugging along! Even when we get annoyed by a particular franchise, we’d never, ever give up on any of these crazy ladies and their sidekicks. And thanks to Bravo, we’re going to have another batch of rich and (sometimes wacky and tacky) women to watch!
There have been rumors for years now about the possibility of new cities being added to the Real Housewives family, but none have ever came to fruition. However, Andy Cohen confirmed this week that a new franchise is coming and SOON!
“In Cheshire, a county in Northwest England, there are only two ways to move: up or out. Nicknamed the Golden Triangle, it is known for its expensive homes, famous residents, and spectacular countryside,” saysBravo. “In the premiere, Dawn Ward’s annual Crème De La Crème Charity Ball – one of the biggest events on the Cheshire social calendar – quickly approaches but not without a few snafus along the way. It is a whirlwind of panicked last-minute dress fittings and big misunderstandings over tickets as the housewives prepare to make their grand appearance… even if they are unwelcome.” Look below to meet the cast of the Real Housewives of Cheshire and watch the preview clip.
Andy opens with the obvious question – why are David and Shannon torturing us, err, themselves, err, their girls with this “All About The Affair” interview?
“There’s been a tremendous backlash to Shannon,” says David. “It’s amazing that people that are on social media just completely shred her about Shannon and I’s relationship, about how I am completely removed from the marriage and look at my eyes, and it’s not true. I love Shannon. I love my family. It’s so unfair to her. That is really the reason I’m here. I’m not looking forward to this. I don’t want to be here, but I hate the fact that they attack Shannon over this. I hate it.”
A snippet from the press release: “After vows have been broken, Bravo delves into the hardships and gut-wrenching truths of repairing a strained marriage as Andy Cohen hosts a special Watch What Happens Live one-on-one with Shannon and David Beador, airing Monday, October 5 at 11 PM ET/PT. The couple talks candidly about what led to David’s infidelity, whether he was in love with his mistress, and if their relationship is strong enough to move forward and keep their family together.” Check out two preview clips from the special below.
