So far, Karen Huger has stayed on the periphery of the drama this season on Real Housewives of Potomac. She’s taking on that (faux) peacemaker role with some subtle instigation. Did she throw Robyn Dixon under the bus when she broadcast their private conversation to the entire cast? Or was she just putting her feelings out in the open so they can be resolved?
It’s debatable, but for the most part, Karen is pretty unscathed this season as she tries her hardest to be the queen of Potomac- a show that the Real Housewives fandom has not fully embraced. And that includes having opinions about everything and everyone.
If I were Luann de Lesseps, I would be a (little bit) pumped that Sonja Morgan is feuding with Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer is getting on Bethenny Frankel’s nerves. I’m not the kind of person who wants to see friends fighting, but all of this other drama is the perfect way to distract everyone from talking about Luann and Tom D’Agostino. So, for that reason, I would be loving this calamity if I were Luann. Or at the very least, she is happy for a reprieve.
Plus, Luann ends up looking calm, cool, and collected in contrast with all of the screaming the other ladies have been doing. And in all honesty, I am so happy that there is discussion about something that has nothing to do with Tom. I am so done with everyone trashing Tom. I get why they hate on him, but it’s played out at this point unless he gets into more trouble and there’s something new to rip on him for.
It was only a matter of time before Porsha Williams launched her own podcast. She’s been paying her dues with her gig at Dish Nation, and she’s already proven she loves to gossip on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Plus every reality star and their grandmothers are hosting podcasts these days.
Obviously, Porsha has no issue spilling some tea (and brewing some of her own), so I’m sure she’s going to be super shady for her own podcast. Now I just want to know who she’s going to blame when she says something offensive.
Bethenny owned up to her topless scene in a movie and didn’t seem bothered by that being a public topic of conversation. However, she seemed infuriated by Ramona bringing Bryn into the discussion. It makes me wonder if Ramona only did this because Bethenny didn’t immediately say “you’re both beautiful” in response to a photo of Ramona and Avery Singer. That definitely seemed to upset her, even more than the hurt she felt when Bethenny neglected to send her a newsletter and slide show about getting two dogs.
Love her or hate her, Real Housewives of Potomac revolves around Gizelle Bryant. She is always shading someone or getting shaded herself. If this show comes back for a third season, she’s basically guaranteed a spot.
I have no idea why she feels so entitled; this is still a new series and the last season was lackluster at best. Nevertheless, she seems to get off on hazing the new girl Monique Samuels, which she also enjoyed last season when Ashley Darby emerged on scene. Whether you’re a Gizelle fan or not, you have to admit that this show would have no story lines if she wasn’t present.
Was Ramona Singer actually concerned Bethenny Frankel’s daughter would find out about her “soft porn” past from her fellow six year olds? Or was she just stirring the pot and securing some Real Housewives of New York screen time? Or maybe she wasn’t thinking at all and just blurted out whatever popped into her thoughts.
Either way, Bethenny was not having it and she excused herself from the rest of the Hamptons trip. Does Ramona feel bad for bringing this up? Probably not. Still, it is possible. I mean, she is known as The Apologizer.
I never thought I would be so confused about whether a couple is divorced or not. It should be such a simple concept, but the split between Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida is anything but simple. It’s shaping up to be the messiest divorce in Real Housewives history. Not only that, but Apollo wants Phaedra to foot the bill – as if she wasn’t already carrying this family on her back.
Yes, there has been a lot of shadiness around Phaedra’s finances, love life, and plenty of other areas, but I still can’t help feeling bad for all of the Apollo-inflicted drama she and her cute sons have had to endure. If Phaedra has as much money as Apollo claims, she should throw some bills his way in exchange for him shutting his mouth. If LaLa Kent (of all people) can get people to sign non-disclosure agreements, then Phaedra (a lawyer) should do something similar. But that’s not the case and Apollo is calling Phaedra out…again.
Before this Real Housewives of Atlanta season started, I felt like the show had the right cast. I couldn’t see any of these ladies getting the boot, especially Phaedra Parks. She’s a shade-throwing assassin, she has the cutest kids, she got burned by her husband, she wears racy outfits, she’s charitable. Basically she has all of the elements that make for a compelling Housewife, but am I the only one who feels like this four part reunion is her swan song?
She told some major lies this year and didn’t have to own any of her actions the entire season since Porsha Williams covered for her the entire time. Phaedra owes her a muffin basket or something to convey her gratitude. Nevertheless, now that all of the episodes have aired, Andy Cohen and her costars will be pushing Phaedra to present some receipts. Unfortunately, it does not seem like she actually has any and she might be totally screwed.
