After a blah first season, Real Housewives of Potomac really stepped up its game with round two. One part of that was casting Monique Samuels– one of two people in the cast who actually live in Potomac.

Aside from actually living in the city from the show’s title, Monique is one of the few cast members who is in a happy relationship and isn’t lying about her finances- so of course, that didn’t sit well with some people.

The most shocking part of the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion was when Ashley Darby announced that she is living separately from her husband Michael Darby. It got even crazier when Michael actually blamed Gizelle Bryant, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, and Robyn Dixon for their marital issues.

Sure, the gossiping didn’t help, but there’s no way that three outsiders were actually responsible for the demise of Ashley and Michael’s relationship. So of course Gizelle is standing up for herself and throwing some serious shade- as per usual.

We have a hot new photo roundup of the reality stars out and about this past week. Kim Kardashian had to up her attention game last week as Rob was stealing her spotlight with his Blac Chyna drama. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star stepped out in NYC exposing her skimpy see-through bra and nearly everything else it was attempting to “cover” up.

NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Gizelle Bryant and others had some fun at the EveryHue Pop-Up Shop at Swagg Boutique event.

Real Housewives of Orange County stars Shannon Beador and Kelly Dodd attended the premiere of Descendants 2 with their daughters. Former OC star Heather Dubrow was there with her four kids, too.

Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 Reunion

With part two of the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion, we are finally drawing to a close on the season. A messy, messy season. Case in point, we left last week’s reunion with Robyn Dixon trash talking cast mate Ashley Darby for all of her pot stirring and not minding her own business when it comes to Robyn’s marriage/not marriage. We rejoin part two in the exact same spot, with the ladies checking their phones, being touched up by makeup, and Robyn telling Charrisse Jackson-Jordan that she would beat Ashley’s ass if it wasn’t for the cameras.

This doesn’t seem like a great place to pick up and thankfully, it’s not, so instead, the husbands (Big Drawers and the BBG), ex-husbands (Juan), and soon to be ex-husbands (Michael) join the stage. Andy is not about to waste any precious time and goes right in on Juan, asking why he was so reluctant to join them. Clearly, someone from Bravo had to get on the phone and beg.

Even though Robyn Dixon was relatively cool with the rest of the ladies on Real Housewives of Potomac this season, the first part of the reunion ended up being all about her. Of course they also “addressed” Karen Huger‘s shady move and got no plausible explanation for it.

Then Ashley Darby and Monique Samuels secured their spots for Season 3 really came at Robyn hard out of nowhere.

Part one of The Real Housewives Of Potomac reunion focused largely on Karen Huger – and the super shady, Scooby Doo mystery bus that moved all of her belongings from one house to another rental while she vacationed in Bermuda. Although Karen attempted to defend her reasons for moving quickly – and to a place outside of Potomac – Gizelle Bryant still isn’t buying it. And neither is just about anyone else, especially now that we know more about Karen’s husband, Ray, owing millions in back taxes.

Gizelle responds to Karen’s claims that she moved to be closer to her parents, even hoping that her parents might come live with her one day. “I DO NOT understand Karen’s house moving explanation at all what-so-EVER! It was very confusing. Are her parents packing their bags and getting ready to move into this Great Falls house? Aren’t her parents very old and need to be cared for? Would they even care where they live? Again, CONFUSING!”

Real Housewives of Potomac Reunion

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!

Bravo promises that the suspicions surrounding Karen’s quick and secretive move will be revealed. Not that we don’t already know since it was revealed that her husband owes millions in taxes. I’m guessing that has a LITTLE something to do with it.
