Gizelle Bryant might not have thrown any bows so far on Real Housewives of Potomac, but she has not emerged unscathed from this season. A lot of Gizelle’s storyline revolved around
money laundering protecting her relationship with Jamal Bryant. You know, the ex-husband who cheated on her, fathered children with other women, and claims to be a man of God. This is the same guy Giz said she would never get back with who now apparently lives in her phone.
Because so much of the ladies’ time was devoted to taking sides between Monique “Don’t Ask Me Twice” Samuels and Candiace “I’m Not Asking For It But I’m Totally Asking For It” Bassett, other content was overlooked. Lest viewers forget, Gizelle is… a BUSINESSWOMAN. But is she though? Fans remember the birth of EveryHue Beauty in 2016 and not much since then. Now we might need to bid adieu to EveryHue. Friends, The Grand Dame has something to say.
The Real Housewives shows are known for many things. They love feuding over petty matters. Glam squads have become a staple. Many of them seem to purposely spit out one-liners with the hope of slapping their own quotes on a t-shirt or novelty coffee mug. Plenty of Real Housewives have tried (and failed) at singing careers.
Of course, almost all of them have become social media influencers, schilling laxative teas, subscription boxes, and fast fashion products on Instagram. And, then there are the many business attempts. We have heard about many businesses that have never actually come to fruition, like Sonja Morgan’s highly-hyped-up toaster oven or Sheree Whitfield’s She by Sheree clothing line. Then, there are the businesses that crumbled pretty quickly, like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s Italian restaurant.
How crazy is it that this season of The Real Housewives of Potomac is almost over? WHAT A SEASON IT HAS BEEN. Whew. I don’t think I’ve ever fully recovered from that blowout altercation between Candiace Dillard Bassett & Monique Samuels. It’s so toxic, and honestly sucked all of the energy out of me. Although, nothing reinvigorates me with life more than Karen Huger launching a new business. Bless Karen and all of her wigs.
Karen has been stuck between Candiace and Monique for weeks now. No matter what she says or does, someone doesn’t like it. Candiace doesn’t fully trust her anymore. This wig event is set to be a crucial moment in their friendship. Karen alleges that Monique is NOT on the guest list. The majority of the group was more than pleased with that revelation. However, if Karen does decide to include Mo, prepare for all hell to break loose.
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?
