Isn’t it nice when ladies of a high-end community can solve conflicts and have mature discussions to iron out issues? It might be, but we probably won’t see it on Real Housewives of Potomac. That said, RHOP is having a breakout season thanks to hands-on combat and verbal disputes.
Karen Huger is helping to keep Potomac above water. She emerged as a voice of reason after Monique Samuels finally succumbed to Candiace Dillard’s request to be dragged. She makes no bones about Gizelle Bryant’s
doomed reconciliation with Pastor Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater. But Dr. Wendy Osefo, BA, MSc, PhD’s scholarly boasting is getting on her final nerve. Now we learn the one thing Wendy does not have a degree in is going up against the Grand Dame.
Let’s be clear, Wendy is an intelligent, educated woman. Let’s also be clear that Wendy will throw this in your face at any available opportunity. Hey, did you know she frequently appears on MSNBC? Even the cashier at 7-11 in Latvia knows by now. Wendy shares her academic achievements with, well, everyone – but is it her only party trick?
Karen, for one, is over it. She does not need Wendy throwing qualifications in her face in an attempt to validate herself. The Grand Dame would never, darling. Karen shared her thoughts on the Real Housewives of Potomac After Show. Karen said, “I am so proud of Wendy’s accolades and academic achievements. Unbelievable.”
To review, Dr. Wendy earned a B.A. in political science from Temple University and a M.A. in government from Johns Hopkins University. In 2012, Wendy completed a M.Sc. in public affairs with a concentration in community development from Rutgers University–Camden. In 2016, she became the first black woman to earn a Ph.D. in public affairs and community development from Rutgers University-Camden. It is an incredibly impressive display, the first 40 times you hear about it.
Karen continued, “And she should be proud of them, but when she says she doesn’t brag on them, I say, roll the tape back.” Then we are treated to a montage of Wendy not bragging, “I am not one to brag about my degrees!” What follows is a hilarious clip of Wendy in different scenes repeating, “I HAVE FOUR DEGREES, I HAVE FOR DEGREES”. In other news, multiple degrees do not make you interesting, Doctor.

Karen advised, “Watch yourself, maybe you didn’t mean to come off that way but that is how you are coming off.” Y’all, Karen is just here pointing out facts. But Wendy was not having it. She had some words for Karen. “If you’re going to pick on me, pick on something else.” Okay, but first you have to do something else.
Wendy added, “Pick on my hair, pick on my clothes, pick on my make-up…” Thanks for the offer, but Gizelle has most of that covered for us. Wendy said, “But if you pick on my educational attainment, then you are laughing in the face of our ancestors.” Excuse me, Doctor, do you need some Aspercreme for that reach? She ended her response to Karen with, “So do us all a favor and shut the fuck up.” Now that is an interesting way to showcase your advanced education.
Does Wendy have more degrees than Karen? Yes. Did Wendy spend more time achieving academic laurels in pursuit of higher learning? Yes. Yet despite all of those accomplishments, she still wound up on reality television. Wendy has more education on paper, but Karen has her masters in common sense. Going forward, Wendy might want people to address her as Doctor, but she best remember to address Karen as Grand Dame.
TELL US- DOES WENDY BRAG ABOUT HER EDUCATION TOO MUCH? DO YOU AGREE WITH KAREN? DOES WENDY ADD ANYTHING TO THE SHOW?
