Thank you, Karen Huger for making Real Housewives of Potomac Season 3 worth watching. Karen’s extremely questionable financial situation is the story line of the season (so far) and she’s giving the other cast members, and the live Tweeters plenty of material to throw shade.
The best shade thrower of all has to be Gizelle Bryant. She saw right through Karen’s Grand Dame of Potomac nonsense from the very beginning and she refuses to let her get away with it. During the last episode, Gizelle showed up to Karen’s press conference (without the press) wearing a shirt that said “God Bless The Hugers.” It was the perfect outfit choice. She could get away with defending it as a “nice message,” but it was also a very easy way to get under Karen’s skin.
In her Bravo blog, Gizelle admitted, “I really wanted to make light of this press conference because it seemed extremely silly to me. Who calls all your friends together to discuss NOTHING?! The shirt was a light-hearted joke to lighten up the huge and heavy tax situation.” I agree with all of that. If anything, Karen has less credibility than she had before (which wasn’t much), the women have more questions than answers, and Gizelle provided some much-needed comedic relief with her fashion choice.
How did Gizelle feel about Karen printing out her Twitter page? She wrote, “Instead of Karen taking the time to print out MY tweets, she should first learn how Twitter WORKS. Karen, a retweet and a tweet are two different things. Asking me to come to a restaurant to show me what I tweeted is a waste of my time, t-shirt, and pink blazer.” The blazer and t-shirt weren’t wasted. Her time? I could see why she might feel that that, but then again, she is a paid cast member on this show. Aside from that, I feel like it was for the greater good since the non-press conference entertained the viewers.
Gizelle said, “Now, it truly speaks volumes that Karen doesn’t want to answer ANY questions because she’s bringing up Michael’s [Darby] questionable internet exposure. Rest assured — that doesn’t throw us off her scent. Karen, we still realize that you haven’t answered not one question.” And she probably never will.
Gizelle also joked about Karen’s press conference companion: “As for Matt, well, he just stuck out like Blake Shelton at a Drake concert. #MattGoHome.”
Tonight is an all new episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac.”Gizelle leaves Karen’s “Press Conference” earlier than expected, but not before revealing a special message that left everyone in shock. Meanwhile, Ashley finds herself in a tough situation after Michael continues to pressure her to cut financial ties with her mother. Robyn and Juan get acclimated in their new home, as Candiace tries to adjust to her overbearing mother being in town. Monique throws Chris a fabulous party for his 40th birthday, but things quickly go left when a three-way fight between Robyn, Ashley and Monique gets out of hand.”
