real housewives


There’s no word yet if Real Housewives of Potomac will be around for a third season, but Ashley Darby is doing whatever she can to make sure that she’s a part of the cast if the show does return. She has no trouble putting Charrisse Jackson-Jordan and Robyn Dixon’s complicated relationships on blast.

That’s why Andy Cohen had no choice but to poll the Watch What Happens Live viewers last night to ask “Is Ashley stirring the pot or is she being a concerned friend?” It didn’t really seem like she was “concerned” when she pushed Charrisse to introduce her to Eddie Jordan at their daughter’s sweet sixteen even though they weren’t on speaking terms. It also didn’t come across as “concern” when Ashley brought up Eddie’s presence at the party during a group hang at the hookah bar, but Ashley has a different view on her behavior.



This Real Housewives of New York season has been a tough one for me to watch. All of the nastiness between my two favorites Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley made me  uncomfortable. These are the two funniest ladies on the show. It has been killing me to see them talking shit about each other and arguing in the previews for upcoming episodes.

Thankfully there is some light at the end of the tunnel: these two are on speaking terms again and are back to getting along well. They actually did a joint interview together. Even if this season continues to be rough between them, I have some hope. Yet, at the same time, I’m hoping that some footage doesn’t air to reignite their feud. Typically, I don’t mind the Real Housewives drama, but these are two people that I want to see getting along. I need them bringing the comic relief and the meme-worthy quotes.



We don’t really “know” Tinsley Mortimer yet since she’s only appeared in two Real Housewives of New York episodes and she hasn’t been a part of any drama at this point. Still, I can feel something brewing since she is Sonja Morgan’s house guest and the woman is infuriating both Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps these days.

Is Tinsley going to make her own judgments about the cast members or will she be conflicted since she’s staying at Sonja’s townhouse? I’m sure that this is a dilemma that Tinsley will face and hopefully she knows better than to go up against Dorinda on Sonja’s behalf. That will not end well for her. At all.



I was pretty excited to hear the news that Kim Zolciak will make an official return to Real Housewives of Atlanta, so I was looking forward to her Watch What Happens Live appearance- especially after her season finale confrontation with Kenya Moore. I wanted to see Kim reading Kenya and dodging questions from Andy Cohen about whether or not she got a nose job, but unfortunately Kim will not be on the episode tonight.

I don’t blame her though, Kim has a very legitimate reason for skipping this public appearance. Her son Kash was bitten by a dog and he had to go to the hospital.


Monique Samuels

Did Gizelle Bryant forget that she was being filmed for a reality TV show? That seems to be a common occurrence among Real Housewives cast members, but I just don’t get how she decided to spin her first meeting with Monique Samuels (which happened with the entire cast present) into something that it wasn’t.

It was ridiculous how she acted like Monique introduced herself by leading with her wealth and spitting some bars when Gizelle was the one who wondered if she owned home and asked her to rap for the group. Monique wasn’t rapping and bragging about real estate out of nowhere. The entire conversation was instigated by Gizelle.

It could have been a difficult year for Cynthia Bailey on Real Housewives of Atlanta, but she definitely had the easiest season out of everyone in the cast. She had the most graceful divorce in Real Housewives history. She turned fifty and looks better than ever (which I didn’t think was possible). Plus, she’s on pretty good terms with the rest of the cast.

Of course, she wasn’t the most interesting person to watch on the show, but she did provide some balance to the crazy antics. Plus, it is entertaining to see her make this “friends” thing work with Peter Thomas. It’s unusual, but they get along better now than they were before they split. So I don’t blame Andy Cohen for asking about their interaction multiple times during the reunion.



I still don’t know what to make of Robyn Dixon’s non-relationship with Juan Dixon. Obviously, it’s not any of my business, but they do put their situation out there on Real Housewives of Potomac and it is Robyn’s only main story line, so I don’t feel bad speculating. At the very least, their dynamic is unique and interesting. I can’t decide what outcome I’m hoping for though. Do I want them to just make it official and get back together for real or do I want her to move on and get what she deserves from someone else?

I’m sure Robyn asks herself similar questions every day, but I doubt she welcomed Ashley Darby’s feedback during the last episode when she referred to her and other cast members as “single and miserable.” That was the last thing Robyn wanted to hear, especially from Ashley who was broadcasting her own marital problems in the sentence before. Thankfully, Robyn is caught in the middle of the feud between Gizelle Bryant and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. I’m sure it’s stressful to be at the center of drama, but on the flip side, it takes away some of the pressure to discuss her status with Juan and I’m sure she’s grateful to take a break from that.


Charrisse Jackson Jordan

For the most part, I forgot that Charrisse Jackson-Jordan was a part of Real Housewives of Potomac Season 1. And on a related note, I almost forgot about Real Housewives of Potomac Season 1 until they started showing previews for the second season. She really had no story line other than making thinly veiled excuses for her never-present husband. Then it was like a light bulb went off in her head during the reunion taping and she realized that she actually had to share her life if she was going to be asked back. That’s probably why she admitted her marital troubles at the last possible second- when they were making their concluding toast. And this what saved her spot on RHOP.

That and the fact that Gizelle Bryant was talking trash about her alleged affair with a fireman in between seasons. This had to be beyond humiliating for Charrisse, but the truth is that it probably secured her Real Housewife title. So in actuality she should be low key grateful that Gizelle is such a shit stirrer. This feud has made her relevant and breathed some much-needed life in to the second most lackluster installment of the Real Housewives franchise (Dallas being the most irrelevant- obviously).
