Karen Huger defended her decision to boot Robyn and Gizelle from her event. “Having security escort both Robyn and Gizelle out of my event was a no-brainer. These two women showed up to show out and out they went! Their failed attempt to ambush the Alzheimer’s event spoke volumes about their morals and lack of character. It was neither the time nor the place for their cruel antics and unbecoming behavior. Their actions do, however, speak volumes as to how low these two will go.”
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.
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.
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.
It looks like Karen Hugeris doing whatever she can to deflect from her financial issues to make sure Real Housewives of Potomacgets 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 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.
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.
