The Portugal fun is almost over for The Real Housewives of Potomac. It was a much needed vacation away from the chaotic drama back home. However, the fun and excitement is about to come to a screeching halt. Ashley Darby wrote a statement against Candiace Dillard Bassett on behalf of Monique Samuels. Once Candiace learns this bit of information, the current peace in the group is over.
There’s an underlying level of tension in the group ever since the incident at the barn. In a perfect world, people shouldn’t have to take sides when something like this goes down. However, it’s not a perfect world. Both Candiace and Monique want people within the group to see things from their POV. Unfortunately for Candiace, Monique may be winning over Karen Huger. La Dame might actually be La Backstabber.
During the last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, Robyn Dixon told Gizelle Bryant she’s not going to include photos of Karen Huger on her website,
where she’s selling tacky hates to pay off her tax debts.
She claimed that Karen’s photo isn’t as good as the others’. So, why didn’t she take a glance at the camera throughout the photo shoot to check on how things were going? Why doesn’t she invite Karen to do a re-take? Why doesn’t she just realize that having Karen on the website is going to help her
pay off her debts sell these hats? And, why did she and Gizelle have to be so cruel (yet again) making fun of Karen’s age? It’s not kind and it’s not even clever. Do better, green-eyed bandits.
Currently, Candiace Dillard’s biggest adversary is Monique Samuels, followed close behind by Ashley Darby.
Last season on Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace’s biggest foe was her own mother, Dorothy Dillard, even though she Wass paying Candiace’s bills. Dorothy tried to get Candiace to uninvited her half-brother from her wedding. She also slapped Candiace in the face with a big purse during a disagreement. Dorothy and Candiace had so much drama last season that Dorothy got her own segment on the reunion.
It should be common knowledge by now that when signing up for a reality show, you are basically signing your life away. And you’re opening the door to all of the skeletons you’ve worked so hard to hide from your Facebook friends. Now that Dr. Wendy Osefo, BA, MSc, PhD, NoOneCares has finished her first season on Real Housewives of Potomac, she’s realizing not everything stays under the radar.
If you didn’t know, Wendy holds multiple academic achievements and often appears on MSNBC. She descends from Nigerian royalty and has quite a reputation to maintain. Dr. Wendy has a lot on her plate, but managed to stand out on RHOP thanks to the impressive credentials she rarely mentions. But those closet skeletons have a way of creeping out at some point. So while we know Wendy has four degrees, three kids, and a big house – now we find out she also has $1.5 million in debt.
Portugal is the much needed reset The Real Housewives of Potomac needed to move on from the fight. I understand the altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett was a big deal. However, they can’t let that one incident drag down the entire season. Letting loose and having some fun even if it’s just temporary, lightens everything in a big way.
We last left these lovely ladies with Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger at odds. They each want to meddle in the other’s relationship, and it’s a vicious cycle. They’ve been throwing digs at each other for five seasons now, and it never changes. One day it might boil over and reach the point of no return, but for now, let’s enjoy the back and forth shade. Jamal Bryant isn’t around ever, but is it Karen’s place to call that out?
Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac has been on fire! Nearly every cast member has a story line this season. RHOP newbie Wendy Osefo flaunted all of her degrees and squabbled with Grande Dame Karen Huger. Karen was dealing with the shifting dynamics in her marriage to Ray Huger. Ray isn’t used to an independent wife who is focused on her perfume business.
Ashley Darby was adjusting to motherhood, and once again, dealing with her husband Michael Darby’s inability to keep it in his pants. This time, Michael
slept with fell asleep next to another woman at a hotel. But don’t worry-Michael assured his wife that nothing happened. Umm…okay.
We’re all pretty familiar with the very basic rules of human nature. One of the first things we learn is not to put our hands on people. Most of us are also told early on to watch what we say. Because in some areas if you are going to talk that talk, please be prepared to walk that walk. That seems to be the overall lesson on this season of Real Housewives of Potomac.
Candiace Dillard was involved in a physical fight with Monique Samuels. Candiace has a mouth on her and uses it frequently. Despite having a run in with her mother’s purse, and Monique’s hands, Candiace seems mostly unafraid to talk that talk. No one will dispute that violence is never the answer, but words are a weapon all on their own. In August, Candiace had some words for blogger, Khyle Paylor, who seemingly sided with Monique in the dispute. Candiace insulted the man physically and wished death on him as well. Sadly, Khyle has passed away. Candiace must have been absent the day we were learning to watch what we say.
Real Housewives viewers have seen the demise of many marriages play out on screen. Ramona Singer’s ex-husband Mario Singer cheated on her. There was some cheating in Luann de Lesseps‘ marriages… both of them.
Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice couldn’t get past their legal issues and cheating allegations. Now, there’s apparently a new cheating scandal brewing with one of the other Real Housewives husbands.
