Is there any product that Kandi Burrussdoes not have her name on? The Real Housewives of Atlantastar already has a restaurant, a sex toy line, and a talk show among other business ventures. Now she is adding a makeup line to her constantly growing empire.
Last night the reunion of The Real Housewives of Potomac kicked off with a huge downer that Karen Huger’s dad had passed away from Alzheimer’s Disease just two weeks prior to taping, and the funeral had been a mere five days earlier. On top of that, her mom had died just seven months ago, so it’s been a terrible time for Karen. When your husband owing millions to the IRS is 3rd on your list of problems, then you know emotions are running wild. She hung in there for a while, but ultimately it got the best of her.
Before we dive into the minutia of grievances these women have, and since all season I have compared them to high schoolers (and sometimes junior high), I’d like to start with my reunion superlatives.
The Real Housewives of Potomac season is almost over, but luckily we still have the reunion episodes to look forward to. Are you ready for part one of The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion tonight? They’re sure to be rehashing all of the best drama from the season, as well as some storylines that we wish would just go away already.
According to Bravo’s synopsis, “The ladies revisit this season’s emotional highs and lows, all while trying to mend their fractured friendships. Monique [Samuels] and Robyn [Dixon] finally get to the core of their rivalry, while Candiace [Dillard] reveals some intimate details about her relationship. Karen [Huger] sheds some light on her mysterious life, but the pain she is dealing with is too much to handle, and Gizelle [Bryant] proves to her that old friends are the best friends.
Does Karen Hugeractually live in that Great Falls mansion? There has been so much speculation for all of Season 3 of Real Housewives of Potomacabout Karen’s finances and now there are rumors that she’s actually living in a townhouse instead of “her” house in Great Falls.
Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, Robyn Dixon, decided to prank Karen by dressing up in disguises (complete with wigs) to “deliver a pizza” to the house. They rang the doorbell and waited for Karen to come out, but she wasn’t home. Later, they asked Karen if she saw the pizza they left in front of her door and she had no idea what they were talking about. So where did that pizza go? Did production steal it to cause drama? Does Karen live somewhere else? There are so many unanswered questions when it comes to Karen.
Love her or hate her, the Real Housewives of Potomacviewers and cast members have to give Karen Huger some credit for the success of Season 3. The Housewives were either talking about Karen or looking for an excuse to bring her up. Almost every storyline came back to Karen.
Karen’s suspicious finances served as the backbone of this season. It all came to head when Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, and Robyn Dixon rung the doorbell at Karen’s home to see if she really lived in that mansion. Karen did not answer the door- obviously. Not only that, but she did not even find the pizza they left on her front porch. So does that mean she doesn’t live there? Or did production take that pizza to stir up drama? There are so many possibilities.
The season finale of the Real Housewives of Potomac left me with several questions: Where do Karen Huger and her husband Ray actually live? Will Ashley Darby ever poke enough holes in her husband’s condoms to get pregnant? Where was Monique Samuels all night? Did the producers throw this disjointed episode together last minute?
We pick up back in Great Falls where Robyn Dixon is dressed in full beard and delivering a pizza to Karen’s house while Gizelle Bryant and Ashley look on, laughing hysterically. Robyn gives the bell three tries before putting the half eaten pizza on the welcome mat and running back to the getaway car. Robyn admits that if someone rang her doorbell and she wasn’t expecting anyone, she wouldn’t answer either, so she’s not really surprised no one came to the door.
Tonight is The Real Housewives of Potomac finale and it looks like the show is going out with a bang. Before we get to that, Gizelle Bryant sat down with Page Six to talk about her dating life. She says it’s not easy to date when you’re on reality TV and it’s even worse to break up in the spotlight.
Gizelle shared, “It’s tough, the whole thing is tough. Even when you’re in a good relationship people have their commentary, but to go through a breakup publicly is not fun, and yes, everybody had their commentary. I decided I’ve just got to live my life and be happy for me, so I can’t really worry about it.”
Everyone involved with Real Housewives of Potomachas Karen Hugerto thank for taking Season 3 to the next level. Her shadiness and lack of answers about her finances has given everyone something to talk about- a million times over.
When it comes to this show, all roads lead back to Karen. Almost every episode ends up being about Karen and her mysterious finances. One person who is not going to let her get away with lying is her longtime friend/frienemy Gizelle Bryant.
