Real Housewives of Potomac just ended, but production on this show moves pretty quickly. Not only have they started filming Season 5, but they even got together for the promotional photos. Why can’t all of the Real Housewives shows move at this speed? Then again, we don’t actually know when Season 5 will start airing. Let’s hope it’s soon because Season 4 was nothing short of phenomenal.

There were rumors circulating on social media that Ashley Darby got fired, which makes no sense to me since she was everyone’s storyline last season. Then again, do we really need two seasons dissecting an alleged butt grab? She will be back though. And we will be treated to more Gizelle Bryant vs. Karen Huger messiness. We will see if Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels make up after their reunion sadness or if they continue their fighting. And, I assume we will be treated to a snack and bathroom break more of Robyn Dixon’s house flipping. And, it looks like there’s a new lady joining the madness.

A Twitter account shared what looks like the promotional shot for the season with all of the Season 4 cast members and a new face. The account identified the unknown face as a woman named Wendy Osefo.

Clicking on Wendy’s Twitter profile, Wendy is a very accomplished woman, which makes me think of Candiace’s insistence that she is one too, even though she was in a beauty pageant that no one has ever heard of and she has been relying on her mother for financial support. Wendy’s Twitter profile reveals that she’s a professor at John Hopkins. She has also served as a political commentator for CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, ABC, BBC World, HLN TV, and Fox Business. Wendy also contributes to The Hill.

It sounds like this woman is bringing a lot to the table. If she can handle a political debate on all of these news programs, I am sure she can handle battling it out with the RHOP ladies. Well, at least some of them. It will be very interesting to see how she fits in with the group and what her connection is to the cast.
