Some things never change on Real Housewives of Potomac. Once again, Season 5 has Ashley Darby’s marriage, and her husband Michael Darby, as a focal point of the drama. On the positive side of things, Ashley’s dreams of becoming a mother were fulfilled when she gave birth to their son, Dean, on July 7, 2019.
This couple has certainly weathered some marital storms. During the RHOP Season 2 reunion, Ashley announced that she and Michael had separated. Then they decided to reconcile.
Monique Samuels girl’s trip is having a lot of unintended consequences. Did anyone expect Wendy Osefo to lose it like that on Ashley Darby? The newbie came in so hot. The Real Housewives of Potomac deliver each and every week, and this one will be no exception. The dinner is in the midst of pure chaos, and the doctor is educating everyone on how to read. However, Ashley isn’t some wallflower, so she’ll bite back.
Speaking of Ashley, it seems like an annual tradition for her husband Michael Darby to get caught in a scandal. This time it’s current frenemy Candiace Dillard Bassett getting the piping hot tea on our favorite Aussie. Michael is going to have a lot of explaining to do after a photo surfaces of him at a strip club trying to procure girls back to his room. Will he ever learn? One day Ashley should do everyone a favor and admit they have an “arrangement”.
The Real Housewives Of Potomac are heading to Monique Samuels’ lake house for a girl’s trip. So many issues are bubbling beneath the surface that are bound to appear on the trip. If Candiace Dillard Bassett chooses to attend, she might be on the receiving end of another “gang-up”. We are getting closer to the fight between her and Monique. The tension keeps rising every episode.
On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace got lit into by Gizelle Bryant. People don’t take kindly to her attacks on Twitter. They want her to be accountable for the things she says and does. With Monique, Gizelle, and Ashley Darby all on the trip, Candiace better be on her best behavior. This episode is also the most the group will have interacted with new wife Wendy Osefo. From the preview, she brings it.
Monique Samuels invites the Real Housewives of Potomac cast members to her lake house. Ashley Darby brings her baby Dean on the trip, which doesn’t sit well with new Housewife Wendy Osefo, who just gave birth to her third child. She questions Ashley for bringing the baby and the argument escalates.
That’s not Ashley’s only issue on this trip though. Candiace Dillard gets some tea about Ashley’s husband Michael Darby’s good time at a strip club, which she shares with Gizelle Bryant.
If you’re sleeping on Real Housewives of Potomac, you better wake up. This show brings it week after week. These women share the good, the bad, and the ugly. Meanwhile, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast has spent the whole season dragging down one person based on a story from a woman who isn’t even a cast member.
Other than self-promoting their own product lines and other business ventures, these women honestly have no story, other than waiting for glam. In contrast, the Potomac Housewives are giving us alleged adultery, debates over parenting, marital strife, and honesty over financial struggles. That is quite the contrast.
Stop sleeping on The Real Housewives of Potomac. They have everything you could possibly want in a reality show. Every episode is a perfect balance of humor, drama, and real moments. The largest focus of the season thus far appears to be on the budding feud between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett. We know it ends in a massive physical altercation, but the spoilers don’t make it any less interesting.
Last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac saw major progress in the friendship of Candiace and Ashley Darby. They won’t be best friends anytime soon but being able to talk calmly is a great first step. Candiace is feuding with everyone this season it seems. A focus of this episode is supposed to be about her calling Gizelle Bryant a monster. Where is the lie in that label?
We finally got a look into Wendy Osefo’s home life during the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Potomac. Before that, all we saw was Karen Huger’s obvious disdain for Wendy. She channeled her inner Mariah Carey, pointing out multiple times that she “doesn’t know” Wendy. It also gave me flashbacks to Gizelle Bryant’s immediate jealousy when she met Monique Samuels and heard about those four homes.
Clearly, that was her attempt to make Wendy look like a “nobody.” However, it just made the Grand Dame look petty as hell. Now, Wendy is sounding off on Karen’s continued cold shoulder.
I love when a new Real Housewife joins a show and feigns a close connection to a current cast member. We all know that a casting agent most likely brought a woman onto the show. Instead, we have to pretend that two people are friends when they might have met once or they have one mutual friend in common.
Unfortunately for Wendy Osefo, she joined Real Housewives of Potomac as a friend of Candiace Dillard’s, who has been very polarizing (which is a nice way to put it). Even so, she has been very impressive so far, despite whatever shade Karen Huger wants to throw in her direction.
