Robyn Dixon‘s complicated relationship with her husband Juan Dixon has been the main topic of conversation on Season 8 of Real Housewives of Potomac.

The former NBA player found himself in hot water in January 2023 when an influencer claimed he received a DM from a woman who claimed she dated Juan for a year during the COVID-19 pandemic. The woman submitted a hotel receipt with Juan’s name on it as evidence.

Robyn addressed the rumor on an episode of her and Gizelle Bryant‘s podcast, Reasonably Shady, in January. She told viewers that Juan did communicate with the woman over Instagram, but they “did not date.”

As to why his name was on the hotel receipt, oh boy, get ready for this one. Juan told Robyn the woman reached out to him and told him she was traveling to Maryland from Canada to visit her boyfriend, who played for the Baltimore Ravens. When she got to the States, she lost her wallet and was unable to pay for her hotel, so she called Juan, who decided to be a good samaritan and cover the hotel bill.

We aren’t totally buying Juan’s story, and neither are Robyn’s RHOP co-stars. Here is everything Robyn Dixon’s co-stars have said about Juan’s cheating rumors.

Karen Doesn’t Believe the Lies

The Grand Dame of Potomac isn’t buying what Juan is selling. Karen Huger shared her thoughts on Juan’s hotel story in an interview with Us Weekly. The RHOP star said she wants to be supportive of her friend Robyn but has difficulty doing so as long as Robyn is standing behind her husband’s story.

“I want her to win, but I want her to stop lying,” she told the outlet. “If she can’t stop lying, what I’d like Robyn to do is accept the fact that we don’t believe their lies.”

“Own it and stop being ridiculous about it,” she added. “Things happen in everyone’s marriage. I’ve been married for 27 years. It’s not easy, but she needs to put it at ease and especially if you’re going to be a member of this core group.”

In a separate interview with Us Weekly at BravoCon 2023, the 60-year-old shared how she would’ve handled infidelity rumors about Ray. “I’d be divorced. Yeah, it’d be over,” she told the publication. “It’d really, really, Ray. No.”

Gizelle Finds Juan’s Story ‘Hard to Believe’

Gizelle always has Robyn’s back, but that doesn’t mean she has Juan’s. The 53-year-old has admitted on Watch What Happens Live that she finds Juan’s story “hard to believe.” Gizelle might be Robyn’s bestie, but that doesn’t mean she’s not going to address Juan’s cheating rumors. We’ve seen her grill both Robyn and Juan about the affair on RHOP Season 8, and we hope she continues to dig for answers.

Candiace Think Robyn Is Covering For Juan

Candiace Dillard Bassett has been candid about not believing the stories Juan has been telling. In a recent episode of RHOP, Candiace told her mom she believes Robyn is covering for her husband. “I don’t believe the stories that she’s telling,” she said.

Candiace has also shared she felt betrayed by Robyn for keeping the affair rumors a secret in Season 7. “I felt bamboozled,” she said to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live in April 2023. “How can you all carry this fake story about Chris [Bassett] across the United States and back when you know there is a real scandal afoot in Potomac.”

Wendy Thinks Robyn Is ‘Delusional’

Wendy Osefo can spot bullsh*t a mile away, and her BS radar seems to be pointed right at Juan. At a BravoCon panel this year, Wendy called Robyn “delusional.”

“I’m rooting for her marriage. But Robyn is delusional,” she said. “We address her delusion throughout this season, and we hold her accountable. But you know, you can take a horse to the water, but you can’t make them drink.”

Mia ‘Understands’ Why Robyn Wanted to Keep the Rumors a Secret

Mia Thornton has a unique perspective on Robyn and Juan’s situation. Mia has always been less conservative than her co-stars, so it’s no surprise she has a more nuanced take on the situation.

During an appearance on the Page Six podcast, Virtual Reali-Tea, in May, Mia showed compassion for her co-star’s situation.

“It’s a very touchy situation…and they’re trying to figure things out. There’s a lot of pain, there’s a lot of hurt,” she said. “Does she really want to talk about this on national television, especially if they’ve already moved forward? Probably not.”

“I get it. I understand why she left it alone,” she added.
