If there is one thing you can count on when it comes to Real Housewives, it’s one of the ladies planning a lunch, dinner, drinks, brunch, spin class, pool party, or waxing session (to name a few) to resolve friendship problems amongst feuding cast mates. The Real Housewives of Potomac are no different and Grande Dame, Karen Huger is at the helm of a high tea to try and squash the growing beef between HBIC, Gizelle Bryant and the HMPDIC (Head Multiple Personality Disorder in Charge), Charrisse Jackson-Jordan.
Karen has good reason to start focusing her time elsewhere: now that all her little birds have flown the nest, she just wanders the halls of her Rent-a-Mansion in bright orange athleisure wear, calling her daughter, who is just trying to live her life away at college. The “tomb” of a home Karen is living in (she got that right) isn’t fit for a Grande Dame and so it must go. The search for a new home, maybe one that isn’t rented and full of cheap, staged furniture is already in full swing. As long as it has a circular driveway, mind you.
I wasn’t impressed with Season 1 of Real Housewives of Potomac. I never became invested in the cast members and nothing really happened. Season 1 felt like a Real Housewives parody at best, but the trailer for Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 has me feeling optimistic. I am pumped for its return on April 2.
But this new season looks GOOD. There was so much going on in the preview, I watched it three times. The housewives were not holding back when they filmed this one. I hope that Season 2 comes through for me. I have hope based on what I’ve seen so far.
Reality Tea is ranking ALL the Housewives from every season and every city! Our list is broken down into three parts with Housewives ranked from worst to ‘best’ (or best of the worst, if you will). Below is Part 1.
What makes a superior species of Housewives? Is it class? Money? Fabulous plastic surgery and good shoes? Beautiful home? A revolving door of crazy that keeps us on our cheaply-clad toes? Is it a supportive husband? An in-home zoo of fabulous miniature fluff balls clad in their own designer wardrobe? Is it a witty zinger or indispensable advice? Is it their ability to rewrite history without irony? To crack open the egg of their emotional travails in front of cameras? Or is it their ability to deftly control the scenery while cracking a Chanel whip?
It was previously assumed the entire cast would return for RHOP season 2, however Katie announced on Twitter that she isn’t coming back – and implied she was fired for being boring! I mean what’s boring about Katie staring at the ceiling in between monotone begging Andrew to propose?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
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.
Ashley Darby came out of her first reunion (part one anyway) looking fairly decent – at least in her attitude. Considering the fashion faux-pax that was the entire cast (it was truly like a fashion fail drive-by – EVERYONE got hit!), Ashley may have come out looking a teeeeensy bit better than the rest. Sure, she took a bullet or two, but maybe those sequins protected her from grave injury? #PromGownDefense
The spunky Real Housewives of Potomac star reflects on Karen Huger calling her a “stray” on the couches, and how all of the other women are simply jealous – of her man (uh, that’s questionable), her money, and her life. Ashley accuses,”Karen calling me a stray was as blatant as a drag queen’s contour. There’s absolutely no way that can be misconstrued, and as a woman who ‘owns her s***’ she should’ve kept it 100. I’m not sure what pound Karen hangs around, but this bitch has a big bite.”
She may be married to the Black Bill Gates, but Karen Huger is the biggest celebrity in her own mind in her relationship – and on The Real Housewives of Potomac, apparently! In her reunion blog, Karen calls out Katie Rost for being “jealous” of Karen’s status within the group. Oh, Karen of The Farm. While she may be slightly delusional and a little (or a lot) extra at times, I have to admit The Grand Dame is always highly entertaining!
Karen goes in on Katie first: “Katie, Katie Katie…does not have the authority to say who or who is not the Grand Dame. For that matter, who is Katie? I’m not quite sure if Katie is an authority on anything other than her mindless rants. We all have opinions and Katie is entitled to hers and we’ve all seen how quite delusional they can be from time to time.”
