The green-eyed bandits have, ironically, made a reality TV career from creating storylines based on the lives of others. Gizelle Bryant is the leading lady on that front. It’s all about creating gossip, which then creates conflict. By the end of the season, her name is in everyone’s mouth.
But Gizelle’s sidekick Robyn Dixon can’t be overlooked. She really shocked host Andy Cohen and the rest of the Real Housewives of Potomac fan club by hiding husband Juan Dixon’s recent affair. She revealed some info on her podcast with Gizelle, Reasonably Shady. But Robyn was planning to sell the tea on Patreon.
Given that inauthentic and devious behavior, nothing’s off limits. So costar Wendy Osefo is perfectly within her rights to assume that Robyn used her for a storyline. Truly, the mother of two has nothing going on.
The political commentator has four degrees under her belt, and was enthusiastically received by her RHOP co-stars and fans during her freshman season. Since then, the winds have shifted and Wendy’s authenticity has come into question.
Wendy was asked to comment on the changing dynamics during an interview with Carlos King on the Reality With The King podcast. According to RealityBlurb!, the mother of three agreed that there “absolutely” was a change in dynamic between seasons. Season 5, her first season, was her “rawest form.” Wendy was post-partum and less focused on her “aesthetic[s].”
The Johns Hopkins professor described herself in Season 7, “like a child rebelling.” Wendy was prioritizing herself for a change. “So I want the boobs, I want to get my body done,” Wendy explained. “If I do candles, I can do candles … Why not do a restaurant?”
“Even my mom called me about that scene, and my sister,” Wendy revealed. “My mom was like, ‘Not you talking to Karen … What the hell you need Karen’s advice for?’ She said more, but you know I ain’t gonna say.”
Wendy added, “You know my momma. She doesn’t hold her tongue about nothing or no one.”
Another topic that came up during the interview was Robyn’s conflicting behavior when filming began. Wendy considered them to be friends “off-camera,” yet last season Robyn questioned her new career paths.
Wendy said, “We saw Robyn go from selling and flipping houses to selling beauty supply store hats to doing whatever she’s doing … So let me understand. It’s ok for her to change her career path and explore different things, but I can’t?”
Here’s where Robyn’s desperation for a storyline came into play. “She never even asked me that off camera. It was me watching the episodes with you guys, and I’m like, ‘wait, that’s how you feel?’” Wendy commented.
According to Wendy, Robyn also pushed the “false rumor” that her husband Eddie Osefo had been unfaithful. She accused the mother of two of “connecting the dots … laying the foundation” to imply that Wendy had her plastic surgery because Eddie was cheating.
One of Wendy’s controversies from Season 7 was her “hot mic moment” that captured her calling Mia Thornton a liar. The problem? She called out Robyn for the same action.
Robyn excluded Wendy and her children from “Family Fun Day,” just one of her poorly executed events. “[Robyn] did not budge,” Wendy said. “She was like, ‘I don’t care, I don’t care about those kids.’”
But Wendy’s most dramatic moment to date was having a drink thrown at her by Mia, an incident she labeled as “wild.” She considered “retaliating,” but decided it wasn’t worth “losing” all that she had worked for.
The incident was controversial because it was compared to what went down between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett. Carlos asked Wendy if “grace” was given to her like it was given to Candiace.
“Y’all are gonna see a lot of people eat their words,” Wendy answered. She claimed people were “doing everything in their power to ice me out.”
TELL US- DO YOU THINK ROBYN WAS USING WENDY FOR A STORYLINE? WOULD YOU GO TO KAREN FOR BUSINESS ADVICE? WAS WENDY BEING A HYPOCRITE FOR CALLING MIA A LIAR BEHIND HER BACK? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT MIA THROWING A DRINK ON WENDY?
