Real Housewives of Potomac

Ashley Darby Real Housewives Of Potomac

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?

Andy Cohen Reveals Who Is Seated Next To Him At The Real Housewives Of Potomac Season 5 Reunion

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.

RHOP Candiace Dillard Real Housewives of Potomac

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.

Blind Item: A Real Housewives Star’s Husband Is Cheating On Her With A Fan

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.

Gizelle Bryant Real Housewives Of Potomac

Life was much more simple when Real Housewives of New York debuted its first season. Bethenny Frankel was living in a less-than-stellar apartment with a bald man named Jason, trying to make a Skinnygirl logo with a Comic Sans font with help from Alex McCord.

She got chastised by Luann de Lesseps for introducing her as “Luann” instead of “Countess de Lesseps.” It was the good ole days in many respects. But, obviously, that era didn’t last forever. Bethenny became a multi-millionaire and superstar businesswoman/philanthropist. And, apparently, she became a lot less funny, at least according to Gizelle Bryant from Real Housewives of Potomac.

Gizelle Bryant Real Housewives Of Potomac

It’s time to escape with The Real Housewives of Potomac and head to Portugal! It’s about time we get out of that city this season, and take a break from the drama. The saga between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett has become too much. It’s all we ever hear about, and it’s time to let the mouse go. It was a little surprising to see Monique press charges against because she was the violent one herself.

Hopefully this trip will not end the same way for Ashley Darby that the last one did. Michael Darby has a hard time staying on his best behavior. No matter how hard Ashley tries to save the marriage, Michael always does something to screw it up. He is the king at getting into messy situations. The stakes are so much higher now because of the baby, but he still can’t be bothered to care. Let’s hope he keeps it in his pants this time!

Monique Samuels Real Housewives Of Potomac

Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac was all about the build-up to the altercation between co-stars Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. The rest of the season will be about the consequences of the fight, and how it affects the ladies.

At a RHOP cast event, Candiace challenged Monique to drag her, and Monique did just that. Monqiue pulled Candiace’s hair and yanked her down across a table. And, of course, Bravo cameras were rolling. It was awful to watch, and there is no excuse for violence.

Wendy Osefo Karen Huger Real Housewives Of Potomac

Isn’t it nice when ladies of a high-end community can solve conflicts and have mature discussions to iron out issues? It might be, but we probably won’t see it on Real Housewives of Potomac. That said, RHOP is having a breakout season thanks to hands-on combat and verbal disputes.

Karen Huger is helping to keep Potomac above water. She emerged as a voice of reason after Monique Samuels finally succumbed to Candiace Dillard’s request to be dragged. She makes no bones about Gizelle Bryant’s doomed reconciliation with Pastor Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater. But Dr. Wendy Osefo, BA, MSc, PhD’s scholarly boasting is getting on her final nerve. Now we learn the one thing Wendy does not have a degree in is going up against the Grand Dame.
