Before we get to the hubby drama, Andy Cohen reintroduces the ladies of Potomac. Last seen, Robyn Dixon was calling for “SECURRRRRITY!” to stop her from beating Katie Rost’s petulant behind with her bedazzled shoe. Still heated as Katie continually cuts her off, Robyn shrugs, “F-k it!” then offers a “This b*tch” under her breath before continuing.
Word on the street is…this is going to be one feisty reunion! The Real Housewives of Potomac gathered for part one of their first ever post season sit-down with Andy Cohen last night to rehash a season of etiquette lessons, racial tension, and butt-grabbing. If the “teamed” seating arrangement tells us anything, it looks like it may be a popularity contest of sorts. Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, Katie Rost, and Karen Huger on one side face off with Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, and Ashley Darby on the other. It’s notable that Gizelle and Karen are closest to Andy, as they seemed to be battling it out for HBIC status all season long. Lots of screaming and finger pointing coming our way, I presume!
Out of the gate, I have to address the elephant in the room: wardrobe, makeup, and hair. In a word…HUH!? These couches look like they’re playing host to my 1993 prom fashion show. I realize that as I type this I am sitting here in mismatched sweats, but I’m sorry ladies of Potomac – an immediate and ruthless intervention is in order! Or each housewives’ personal stylist must stand behind their creation and do some ‘splainin. Katie’s face alone makes Sonja Morgan’s smoky eye and updo seem, I don’t know, hip? And the sequins being served up here must have been a cast decision. But you know what they say about theory and reality. Theoretically, six super-sparkly gowns seems fancy and fun. In reality, it looks like a TJ Maxx clearance rack exploded on stage. Okay, no more shade. On to the show!
Katie Rost finally got what she’d been begging for all season on The Real Housewives of Potomac: a proposal from boyfriend Andrew. Now the self-proclaimed “ball and gala girl” opens up about how the debut season of RHOP ended, and where she and Andrew are at today.
Despite rumors that the couple is on the outs, Katie claims everything is just perfect, perfect, perfect! Before getting to her scripted outline take on the engagement, Katie first breaks down Gizelle Bryant’s messy “Come to Jesus” luncheon. When invited to lunch, Katie admits, “My cynical side DID assume she just wanted to have a dramatic ‘attack session’ style luncheon where perhaps she did some of the following: 1. She wears a dramatic hat that just screams, tolerance, style, subtlety. 2. She says dramatic things while sitting back, arching an eyebrows waiting like for someone to allow her to launch truly fascinating stories about examples of behavior that are either very White or very Black (but NEVER are they EVER– any mixture of to two!) 3. She does dramatic stuff like jump up from a table, pointing and screaming, when Katie dares to say ‘obviously I’m a black woman, I’m also bi-racial!'”
