Real Housewives Of Potomac Returning For Season 4 With LOTS Of Drama

Grab your popcorn, the Mid-Atlantic’s finest offering is coming your way. Buckle up for Season 4 of the Real Housewives of Potomac! I cannot wait to revisit old friends, Ashley Darby, Gizelle Bryant, and Karen Huger’s wig. Along with Monique Samuels’ growing family, will we see Robyn Dixon reprising her role as side-chick wife? And let’s not forget Candiace Dillard, is she finally supporting herself financially?

Will the group get along and become examples of proper etiquette and friendship? I hope not. These ladies love some juicy gossip and don’t mind keeping each other in check. Find out what we’ve missed and what’s in store for the RHOP “friends” this time around.

New babies, New Orleans, and new scandals, oh my! Entertainment Tonight shared the dramatic new RHOP trailer, and it was a lot. The women might be facing more ups and downs than in previous seasons, and the drama looks promising. Looks like the ladies head down south to New Orleans for the cast trip, sorry French Quarter!

Monique and Chris Samuels are on the baby train. We get to see a 3D ultrasound shot of their bun in the oven. Monique had it rough last year. Now, she’s adding a third kid to her already busy schedule. In the preview she yells, “I’ll drag you, pregnant and all!” at Candiace during some type of event, so she clearly has something on her mind.

Ashley and Michael Darby will take us on their quest to get pregnant, while addressing the sexual assault charges brought against Michael. Gizelle comments on the scandal by saying, “Michael like big butts, and I cannot lie…” Gizelle pretty much comments on everything, so this is not a surprise. Hey Gizelle, captured got a man yet??

GRAND DAME Karen returns! Did we ever find out where Karen actually lives? She has a lot to say about Ashley’s husband ALLEGEDLY playing touchy-feely with a Bravo production member. We already know the charges were bogus, but it gave the women a lot of ammo to use against Ashley. As Karen ominously says in the clip, “Karma is a bitch, honey.” I guess she knows a lot about karma, given “the black Bill Gates” tax slip ups last year.

Candiace (why is her name spelled this way?) is back for her second season with the ladies. With tortured fiance Chris Bassett in tow, a very sparkly wedding is taking place. Obviously, it did not come without a cost. Not her cost, silly, her mother’s. Candiace is shown yelling at Mommie Dearest her mom, who is probably financing the majority of the wedding.

Robyn and Juan Dixon appear to still be together. Obviously, Juan has something good going on because she can’t grow some balls seem to leave him. The couple divorced in 2012 but remain living in the same home and sharing the same bed. This strange relationship will once again be the subject of ridicule by cast members. Robyn questions Juan too, “At this point, what do you want?” She might not want the answer to that one.

And oh look, an appearance by former housewife Katie Rost. Katie is looking, um… tired? She must be on team #whatevergizellesays because the two are toasting to old friends while imbibing martinis during daylight hours. Katie quips, “I’m silently judging everybody,” in what looks to be a group outing. Hang on to that sweetie, it will come back to haunt you.

It would not be a Real Housewives show without dinner drama. In one scene, the ladies are dining at Candiace’s house when Ashley screams, “I’m in your mama’s house right now!” during a blow-up. Candiace goes all ninja and pulls a knife! I can’t take the excitement!

This season looks like fire, and the best part – no one seems to have dog adoption issues! The season premiere is Sunday, May 5 on Bravo. Don’t let us down, ladies!
