After a coronavirus-induced delay, Real Housewives of Potomac season 5 is finally approaching. The show returns for season five on Sunday, August 2 at 8 pm.
After a stellar season four, the anticipation for season five is building up. And, now, we have the taglines for the upcoming season. A good tagline makes you laugh and serves as the perfect preview of what to expect from someone’s storyline for the season.
Real Housewives of Potomac season 4 was fire. The show has been getting better and better every year. We were all so excited for the ladies to return for the season 5 premiere in May. However, unfortunately, the premiere was very vaguely pushed back until “summer 2020.”
Because of the pandemic, there are very few shows that are filmed and ready to go. Additionally, it just takes longer for the editors to put the editors together from home in comparison to when they are in their normal offices. Plus, other Bravo shows had to put filming on hold, meaning that at some point, they’re bound to be out of new episodes. Yes, it made total sense to push back the premiere, but the news was still a major bummer to the Real Housewives of Potomac fans.
Marlo Hampton is the queen of stirring the pot on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But it turns out the perennial Friend of the Housewives can also unite a host of Bravo stars for a good cause.
The outspoken fashionista recently organized a PSA for Black Lives Matter starring the casts of RHOA, Real Housewives of Potomac, and Married to Medicine, and the results are nothing short of powerful.
It’s only been one day since the reality show world was rocked to its core. In case you live under a rock, Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist behavior. The target of their behavior was ex-cast mate, Faith Stowers, who is black. A few years ago, both Stassi and Kristen falsely accused her of stealing and called the cops on her. Their claims were completely baseless and cruel.
In addition to Stassi and Kristen being fired, Bravo also made the (correct call) to fire two more VPR stars. In the same announcement, Bravo confirmed that newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni are donzo. Honestly, this was long overdue considering we found out mid-season that Max and Brett have a history of racist tweets.
Stassi Schroeder just lost a bunch of her sponsorships. Comments that she made in 2018 resurfaced and she’s facing lots of backlash. She bragged about the time she and Kristen Doute called the cops on Faith Stowers back in 2018. Faith brought this up during a Black Lives Matter discussion on Instagram Live.
Stassi and Kristen apologized for what they did in separate social media statements last night. However, the internet doesn’t stop and another racially insensitive rant has resurfaced and Real Housewives of Potomac star Candiace Dillard has called her out.
Normally, reality TV is lighthearted and provides a sense of escape. However, today’s reality stars are taking on important causes, Black Lives Matter. Bethenny Frankel raised funds for 100 black-owned businesses in less than 24 hours. Porsha Williams joined in on the protest and even offered bail money and lawyers to people who got arrested. She also detailed her experience getting tear-gassed at the peaceful protest. Other reality stars used their voices, demanding justice for George Floyd and all of the other African Americans who have been profiled and treated unfairly.
Bravo recently announced that there will be a special two-part episode of Watch What Happens Live on Monday, June 8 at 11 PM. The special will focus on the Black Lives Matter movement.
Normally, we love to keep things light and make sure our readers are entertained. We know that many people love to escape by reading our website and that’s something we understand. We also know that other times, our readers look to our site for that intersection of reality TV and other important news. Recently, our site has covered different aspects of the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to the global health crisis, there are issues in this country that cannot be ignored. Recently, reality TV stars have been using their platforms to demand justice for George Floyd, a man who was killed on May 25 when a policer officer named Derek Chauvin shoved his knee into his neck. George told him, “Please, the knee in my neck, I can’t breathe.” According to CNN, witness Donald Williams told the policeman, “Officer, he’s not resisting arrest, you have your knee on him and you have handcuffs on him, he’s detained at this moment.'”
Over the weekend, some of your favorite reality TV stars attended protests. Others encouraged people to take action and speak up.
