Season 4 of Real Housewives of Potomac has proven to be just the right amount of tender sentiment and festering, unresolved drama. Some things remain the same. Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant keep taking digs at each other, Candiace Dillard tries to stand up to her mother, and Robyn Dixon fades into the background. There have also been poignant moments concerning miscarriages and baby planning.
But there has been some conflict building up that, according to the trailer, will spill over in a big way. Michael Darby got off way too easy from his suggestive comments at Candiace’s wedding. Surely this crowd wouldn’t let drama like that go to waste. Those comments, coupled with the public news about Michael’s alleged assault, will make the rest of the season very difficult for him and wife, Ashley Darby.
The mid-season trailer Bravo released portrays a dichotomy of the ladies at an idyllic vacation dinner with scenes of all hell breaking loose back in Potomac. Candiace seems to be involved in almost every conflict. First, she confronts her mother. This likely does nothing to improve Candiace’s situation. She reports that her mother “just smacked me in the face with her purse.” Chris Bassett tries to offer advice but it is not well received, “what you’ve being doing for 32 years hasn’t worked. I’m your husband and you don’t listen to me.”
Monique Samuels indicates that Candiace may revert to her old ways. She said, “what happens when the marriage fails, are you back to being a little girl again?” This leads to another major conflict between Candiace and Monique. The closest thing to a conclusion is Candiace clapping back at Monique and shouting, “drag my ass!”

Candiace also revisits her conflict with Ashley. She takes advantage of Michael’s comments to, once again, question whether Ashley is serious about getting pregnant. Candiace says, “why would you want to have a baby with a man who wants to be having fellatio with other men?”
Ironically, the person with the least amount of charisma and camera time is the one to reveal to Ashley that her husband was overhead making suggestive comments about another man. Robyn spills the beans and suggests Michael was talking about, “one of our men.” This leads to an epic confrontation. Ashley has to be held back by Candiace as she goes toe to toe with Karen.
Karen seems to be very outspoken on the issue of Michael’s alleged assault on a cameraman. She is heard saying of the Darby’s, “it’s you in the hot seat, handle your business,” and, “he admitted that there was contact.”
Karen is able to multi-task her conflicts though. Her issues with Gizelle are far from over. According to the trailer, Karen calls Gizelle a “green-eyed liar.” Karen also claims, “Gizelle being messy is a train that always arrives on time.” Gizelle is always on point with a dig and calls for security mid-fight.
These ladies are just getting started. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
