REAL HOUSEWIVES OF POTOMAC MONIQUE SAMUELS

I wonder if now that Monique Samuels is expecting her third child she will be less involved with the grandstanding drama that consumes this season of Real Housewives of Potomac. It’s highly unlikely, but that’s why we watch, isn’t it? After an explosive charity showdown that has been building for a several episode arc (who knew that could be a thing?), the ladies are speaking their truths and hurling insults as they react to the latest episode.

From Karen Huger’s Alzheimer’s benefit that required security to Gizelle Bryant’s CBC drama, the women of RHOP made several scenes. On the front lines with Gizelle and Karen stood Robyn Dixon, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, and Monique…and I’m still not sure who is one whose side anymore. These chicks change alliances like most people change underwear!

The Real Housewives of Potomac have stepped up their game this season, and the theme of the women’s antics seems to be just general messiness. I think this crew takes the franchise’s cake for pot-stirring and smack talk, yet they are all contractually obligated able to share some laughs on a Bravo funded vacation. At least it’s fun to watch!

The drama of late has festered along the backdrop of several charity events, and if you think these women are above throwing shade when it comes to good causes, you would be sorely mistaken. At Karen Huger’s Alzheimer’s fundraiser, she kicked out Gizelle Bryant and Robin Dixon, and Gizelle managed to get into it with Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. Of course, doesn’t Gizelle get into it with everyone? The Word on the Street has some words of her own for Karen, Charrisse, and Monique Samuels.

The Real Housewives of Potomac Recap – Petty Is As Petty Does

Have there ever been more frivolous fights on The Real Housewives of Potomac than the ones we witnessed tonight? Okay, season 1 had its moments, but the ladies were new to reality TV and could be forgiven for rookie mistakes. But several scenes tonight top my list of stupid stuff to fight about.

Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon are on a mission to deliver a message to Karen Huger. I’m not sure exactly what their message is other than Robyn wants to say “Liar, liar, pants on fire”, and Gizelle wants to see Karen embarrassed. I’m getting Déjà vu from last year when the Green-Eyed Bandits crashed in to OZ while Ashley Darby was working and Robyn came at her, finger in face, screaming that Ashley needed to stop talking about Juan.

Candiace Dillard Thinks Karen Huger Invited Sherman’s Ex-Wife To Her Event To Get Revenge On Gizelle Bryant

The only person who has consistently defended Karen Huger this season on Real Housewives of Potomac is the newest Housewife Candiace Dillard. Even so, she really can’t take up for Karen after her messiness during the last episode.

Karen invited Gizelle Bryant’s (super recent) ex-boyfriend Sherman Douglas’ ex-wife Kyndall Douglas to her event. Karen has never mentioned Kyndall before, but she did everything possible to get Kyndall at her event. She even told Kyndall that she didn’t have to pay for a ticket to get in- unlike everyone else who attended. Obviously, Karen was trying to get under Gizelle’s skin with Kyndall’s presence. Everyone saw through that- even Karen’s girl Candiace.

Ashley Darby Says It Was “Grade A Shade” When Karen Huger Invited Gizelle Bryant’s Ex-Boyfriend’s Ex-Wife To Her Event

It looks like Karen Huger is doing whatever she can to deflect from her financial issues to make sure Real Housewives of Potomac gets a Season 4. During the last episode, Karen Huger invited Kyndall Douglas, Gizelle Bryant’s (very recent) ex-boyfriend Sherman Douglas’ ex-wife, to her event. Not only that, but Karen insisted that Kyndall attend and even told Kyndall that she didn’t have to pay for a ticket to get into the charity event. Karen really wanted this woman at her gala.

But why was Kyndall’s presence so important to Karen? If these two were super closer friends, why hasn’t Karen mentioned her name until this point? To shade Gizelle and make her uncomfortable. Obviously. Or at least that’s what Ashley Darby (and most of) the viewers think. This invite just reeked of shade.

Gizelle Bryant Says Karen Huger Is “Not Capable Of Telling The Truth”

Even though Gizelle Bryant and Sherman Douglas broke up two episodes ago, Sherman’s name is still in everyone’s mouths on Real Housewives of Potomac. Monique Samuels suddenly revealed that she is good friends with Sherman’s ex-wife Kyndall Douglas, went for a walk with her, and invited Kyndall to her event.

Gizelle wasn’t at Monique’s event, but Gizelle is a cast member on this show, so that was a slightly messy move for Monique to make on camera. Nevertheless, Karen Huger one-upped Monique and invited Kyndall and Gizelle to the same event. That’s definitely a good strategy to stop the constant chatter about the Huger financial situation.

The Real Housewives of Potomac Recap: Give Until It Hurts

How is it that nearly the entire cast of The Real Housewives of Potomac imploded over something as nice as three charity events? Before tonight I really didn’t think it could happen. But giant egos and old vendettas came together in a perfect convergence zone, and the fallout will last the rest of the season. Tonight was all about charities but nothing about giving.

It’s date night for Karen Huger and her husband, Ray. He has been busy handling all the tax problems and Karen is occupying her time with her new perfume line and her charity, O Huger, which is named after Ray’s mom, Odessa. The foundation is to support the Alzheimer’s Association and not only does Odessa suffer from it, but Karen’s mother does as well. Both her parents are in bad health, but Karen has told her mother she’s not ready to let her mom pass just yet. In a moment of lucidity, her mom tells Karen she’s proud of her, and I can’t help but get emotional too. Good grief, Karen, we’re only five minutes in, let’s move on to something happy before we’re all a mess.

Robyn Dixon Says It “Hurt And Stung” When Charrisse Jackson-Jordan Chose Monique Samuels’ Event Over Hers; Calls Karen Huger A Liar

Is it a coincidence that Robyn Dixon and Monique Samuels planned events for the same night so soon after their scuffle at Karen Huger’s scent event? Maybe. Most likely not, but maybe. So of course, Robyn and Monique are taking their costars RSVP’s very personally. It’s not just choosing an event. It is choosing Monique over Robyn and vice versa.

Even though Monique joined Real Housewives of Potomac as a friend of Charrisse Jackson-Jordan’s, Robyn has been friend with Charrisse for 14 years. Needless to say, it did not sit well with Robyn when Charrisse said she was going to Monique’s event over Robyn’s.
