After Gizelle Bryant‘s tea-spilling stint on Watch What Happens Live last week, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan is firing back. Gizelle accused Charrisse of having a “fireman” boyfriend on the side. Charrisse, still technically married to the invisible Eddie Jordan, did not take too kindly to Gizelle spreading her business all over the airwaves even though they’re both on reality TV and have opened their lives up to public scrutiny.
The Real Housewives of Potomac star admits, “I was very disappointed that Gizelle would stoop to the level of being on a national station talking about my life, that she knows nothing about, creating a lie just for attention and airtime. I don’t know why I’m surprised because that’s the type of person we dealt with all season, but this to me was an all-time low for her to even go there.”
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.”
A whole new Robyn Dixon showed up at The Real Housewives of Potomac Reunion, Part 1 Sunday night! Departing from her usual chill style, Robyn took the opportunity on the reunion stage to confront her cast mates about their behavior this season. And now she’s taking to her blog to continue the “discussion!”
Robyn first calls out Karen Huger for dubbing Gizelle Bryant’s hairdresser as “the help” at Charrisse Jackson-Jordan’s crab boil. “Calling someone ‘the help’ and questioning why a person would bring ‘the help’ to a party is stuck up, elitist, and condescending. Karen’s comments implied that people in service positions are inferior and not worthy of attending the same party as her. I have news for Karen, she is not any better or more deserving than any other person simply because she’s married to the ‘black Bill Gates.'”
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!
DC’s cherry blossoms are past their peak as the feud between Gizelle Bryant and Katie Rost roars on, with Gizelle taking to her blog this week to deride Katie’s most recent antics. Calling Katie juvenile doesn’t seem nearly as bad as calling her an undercover drug addict, so maybe Gizelle’s toned it down a bit, actually! One thing seems clear: these two Real Housewives of Potomac castmates will be coming with guns blazing at one another for the reunion.
Katie is not – nor may ever be – on Gizelle’s short list of acceptable humans. However, in an effort to smooth things over, Gizelle did invite Katie to her “Come to Jesus” lunch. But we all saw how that turned out! Gizelle describes her lunch as a place where “everyone comes to the table in the spirit of ‘What Would Jesus Do.’ Let’s all be the bigger person, let’s agree to disagree, let’s hold hands and sing, ‘Let There be Peace on Earth.’ So regardless of your race or religion, come to the lunch and act like you have some home training.”
Listen up, ye unwashed hordes! The Grand Dame, Mrs. Black Bill Gates Karen Huger, has a lesson for us all, and it does not involve etiquette! It does involve Karen putting on her Judgy McJudgenstein farm overalls to school Ashley Darby once again on the ways of a Proper Potomac Lady.
The Real Housewives of Potomac star claims that Ashley doesn’t have manners or boundaries due to her lack of…um, children? After her explosive comments at Gizelle Bryant’s luncheon, Karen continues to defend her protectiveness over daughter Rayvin, who left for college this season. About Rayvin, Karen shares, “Our mother/daughter bond is stronger than ever. I’m very proud of her.”
