My brain these days is 95% occupied with thoughts about the Real Housewives of Potomac. And frankly, I’m not mad about it. The ladies of Potomac made their Season 6 debut finally and it was exactly what Real Housewives dreams are made of. No one is doing it like them. Wendy Osefo’s party for her new additions, Happy & Ness. Candiace Dillard’s struggles to do elementary school math. The chaotic energy that exudes from newbie Mia Thornton. And, as always, the season kicked off with an over-the-top argument between Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant that involved a whole lot of messy insults. I feel ALIVE now that the streets of Potomac are BUZZING BABY.
Gizelle and Karen’s feud will go down in history as one of the best on Bravo. That’s a hill I will die on. Since Season 1 of RHOP, they always find a way to go back and forth. And honestly, it’s hard to be ride-or-die with one side because they’re both so good at throwing shade and exposing one another. Whether it’s La Dame exposing Jamal Bryant Who Lives In The Phone or Gizzy questioning Karen’s rented mansion, all bets are off when it comes to these two. Honestly, sometimes, I forget that they ever even started the show as friends — they’re the textbook definition of frenemies.
The Grande Dame appeared on Watch What Happens Live recently to, what else, dog on Gizelle even more than she did during the first RHOP episode. She threw her usual insults about Gizelle being a liar.
When asked to say something nice about her, Karen commended Gizzy for sticking to “primary colors” in her always questionable fashion choices. Ooooh, I love shade this time of year.
One WWHL viewer asked Karen when she thought her friendship with Gizelle went sideways and of course, she went in. “Wow, I think it’s just the constant, you know, backstabbing she did got on my nerves,” Karen said.
Karen continued, “You can’t keep poking the bear. The bear will poke you back.” I know that’s right. But to be fair, both of these ladies are guilty of pushing each other’s buttons from time to time. That’s what makes them so entertaining to watch every week. The Gizzy v. Grande Dame feud is the ultimate remedy to the Sunday Scaries.
