The Bravo gods are blessing us this summer with new seasons of Real Housewives Of New York, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills AND the Real Housewives of Potomac. And that drama looks like it’s going to be serious in all three cities. It’s really the news we needed after all of the coronavirus shutdowns and delays in filming over the past year.
RHOP has been filming for its sixth season. But this time, Monique Samuels and her binder are not in the mix. The word on the street is some new faces will be joining OGs like Karen Huger, Ashley Darby and Gizelle Bryant. Also, Dr. Wendy Osefo is gearing up for her sophomore season, and it looks like she’ll be handling a few scandals of her own.
Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac welcomed their newest Housewife, Dr. Wendy Osefo, into the mix. Wendy joined us with her PhD, three children, and a hawt husband, Eddie Osefo. Eddie and Wendy brought their Nigerian culture and traditions to the Bravo screen. Eddie also brought a lot of calm to the Potomac house-husband dynamic.
During the finale of RHOP, Michael Darby and Chris Bassettt nearly came to blows. Meanwhile, Eddie stuck to the side and stayed out of the entire debacle. A great strategy, to be honest. Unfortunately for Eddie, word on the street is that season 6 won’t be so easy to watch from the sidelines.
It’s been a hot minute since the Real Housewives of Potomac have graced our screens. Season 5 was more than iconic. Let’s not forget the infamous brawl between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. The collision split the remaining cast into two sides. At the time, the then-newest Housewife, Dr. Wendy Osefo, seemingly teamed up with Candiace and the green-eyed bandits.
One of the bandits, Gizelle Bryant, may be regretting her choice in alliance. Since filming wrapped, she has been catching heat from the unofficial #TeamMonique who are spilling tea left and right. To make matters worse, even Andy Cohen has come for Gizelle recently. Never a good sign. Not to mention the newest addition to the RHOP cast, Mia Thornton, has been rumored to have had an affair with another cast member’s husband. Is that more shade directed towards Gizelle and her cease-and-desist happy cheating ex-husband turned rekindled boyfriend? Yikes.
It’s far from a secret now that some of our favorite Real Housewives OGs from different cities are currently filming a spin-off show in Turks and Caicos. Kyle Richards snapped a shot of her on a plane ready to represent the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s no doubt that Ramona Singer has argued with somebody about the room situation or something just as petty. And if I had to guess, Real Housewives of Atlanta’s worst hostess ever Kenya Moore is probably already sick of the Ramonacoaster. The Real Housewives of New Jersey sisters from different misters Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga have made their grand entrance. And like many of the ladies, Luann de Lesseps and Cynthia Bailey have been posting fabulous beach shots letting everyone know that they really do just get better with age. No word on whether or not Lu has fallen in a bush or slept with a pirate yet, that’s TBD.
The seven ladies are the core cast for the “All-Stars” spinoff, which Bravo has alluded is a “vacation series.” However, rumors have been swirling about a surprise 8th guest who might show up halfway to stir up even more drama. And the word on the street is it’s an old star who fans have been eager to see back on Bravo.
Kandi Burruss dealt with several personal issues on Season 13 of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Kandi sent her eldest daughter, Riley Burruss, off to college even though Riley has no idea how to clean. RHOA viewers watched Riley grow up on our television screens.
Kandi decided to go after Riley’s father, Russell “Block” Spencer, for unpaid child support. Riley and Kandi feel that Riley is entitled to the money that Block owes her. I totally agree.
The Real Housewives of Potomac had its first big cast shakeup with the exit of Monique Samuels after four seasons on the show. Karen Huger, Robyn Dixon, Gizelle Bryant, and Ashley Darby have been the core four since the premiere season. Candiace Dillard joined in Season 3 and, after taking some newbie heat from Karen, fit into the group quite well. She brought the drama, but also solidified friendships overall.
The support she got from Robyn and Gizelle after her physical altercation with Monique helped her finish out the season. But Candiace was still visibly upset at the reunion, and questioned Monique’s accountability and remorse for the incident. The fallout from that event really dampened the mood at the reunion. While Karen called for healing within the group, Monique chose to take the easy route and quit the show.
We all know that Monique Samuels will not be on Real Housewives of Potomac when the show returns for Season 6. It’s been rumored that she’s been replaced by Mia Thornton, but it’s unclear if Mia is a full-time Housewife or a part-time cast member.
We also don’t know if there are any other new additions to the cast, but there is some potentially explosive gossip circulating.
Yesterday, Ashley Darby posted, “It’s really hitting me – these are the last moments of [son] Dean being my only baby. While I’m beyond words excited for our growing family, I have to give space and acknowledgement for the journey Dean and I have been on thus far. He’s a magical little human and I count my lucky stars every single day that I get to be his mother.”
In another post, the pregnant reality star gushed, “To say I’m on Cloud 9 would be an understatement of epic proportions.” Early this morning, the Real Housewives of Potomac star posted “go time” to her Instagram Story.
