Real Housewives of Potomac

Real Housewives Of Potomac Premiere Delayed Because Of Coronavirus

One of the few good things to help get through this quarantine has been the Bravo programming. The network has blessed us with some throwback marathons. We’ve had new episodes of Real Housewives of New York, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Shahs of Sunset, Vanderpump Rules, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, and more. Even Watch What Happens Live has started filming episodes via webcam to adjust to life during the coronavirus pandemic.

Every day, I look forward to that night’s new Bravo show, because, let’s face it, I have nowhere to go. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 premiere is right around the corner. Oh, wait. It was right around the corner. Unfortunately, plans have changed.

People has reported that the May 3 premiere has been pushed back to sometime this summer, with no replacement date announced. Why? To “ensure Bravo has a steady flow of new programming on Sunday nights throughout the summer. Season 2 of Married to Medicine Los Angeles, also set to premiere May 3, will remain on the schedule as planned.” Couldn’t we make a trade!? RHOP > Married to Medicine LA. Come on, Bravo. Give the people what they need during these times.

In an Instagram post, Ashley Darby wrote, “#RHOP fans: due to these unprecedented times, we have to push the new season until the summer. However, when we say it will be worth the wait, we MEAN IT! Thank you for your continued love and support. Stay healthy and stay safe! We’ll be in touch with a new date ASAP.”

Monique Samuels shared a photo of herself giving a shady look during her confessional interview with the caption “The look you give when you find out Season 5 will NOT premiere on May 3rd…. See y’all later this summer .”
