What is a season of the Real Housewives of Potomac without a Michael Darby scandal? Ashley Darby’s mess of a husband has been causing issues since we first saw this man squeeze a butt during Season 1. Truthfully, I don’t even know how Bravo is cool with still having him on the show, considering the allegations of it all. And while Ashley is trying to convince us that Michael has changed, it’s going to take a lot more from him to make anyone believe it.
Let’s not forget that Michael (allegedly) CHEATED ON HIS PREGNANT WIFE last season and then tried to blame it on her. Trash. The couple just welcomed their second child on this week’s episode, and Michael appears to be going through yet another midlife crisis with his interest in becoming a movie producer despite literally JUST having a baby. Hunny, you’re no Randall Emmett. I don’t believe anyone will be dying to watch movies produced by Mickey Darby.
If you’re still sleeping on The Real Housewives of Potomac, there might be no hope for you. This is a franchise that delivers five star episodes every week. Every woman on the cast is working for that check. It’s the perfect blend of drama and comedy. No other city is even coming close to topping them right now. Newbie Mia Thornton already has herself front and center in the group’s drama. Her feud with Wendy Osefo is SERVING.
Mia has been quite the flip flop since joining the group. Despite her loyalty to Karen Huger, she’s shown interest in befriending Gizelle Bryant & Robyn Dixon. Whether or not she’ll bond with them remains to be seen. It’s going to be difficult for her to walk that fine line for too long. It’s likely she’ll end up planted firmly on the side of The Grande Dame. However, the journey to getting to that point should be delicious!
Real Housewives of Potomac literally is life. The ultimate remedy to the Sunday Scaries. And one of the only Real Housewives cities that I tend to watch each episode at least twice in the same week because I just can’t get enough. The ladies of Potomac are truly the Grand Dames of Bravo and it’s only getting better every season.
This season of RHOP is highly anticipated for several reasons, one being we’re finally getting past the infamous fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard-Bassett. Gizelle Bryant and Wendy Osefo seemingly go head-to-head thanks to none other but the chatter on the streets of Potomac. Karen Huger has a new sidekick Mia Thornton who’s a shady and chaotic new addition. And whether you agree or not, Robyn Dixon and Ashley Darby are the messy side characters I need in every episode.
The Real Housewives of Potomac is truly a one-of-a-kind show. The ladies will be sitting around, having a kiki and it will turn into a shade-throwing battle at the snap of a finger. We’ve seen it between Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger nearly every episode. Or Candiace Dillard-Bassett and Ashley Darby in the infamous butter knife incident. Potomac is a top-tier city because it’s a genuine drama between real friends. And even newbie Mia Thornton is fitting right into the mold, with her best bud the Grande Dame by her side.
Mia’s jumped right into the drama, getting into it with the new and improved Wendy Osefo. Mia’s been messy, but Zen Wen isn’t exactly keeping the peace either in her attempts to defend Gizzy. And it got even worse at the spa trip that was meant to keep the peace. Mia’s hinted that she gets into it the most with Wendy and CandeePants, so we’ll have to wait and see what caused the major food fight hinted in the RHOP trailer.
If you aren’t watching Season 6 of Real Housewives of Potomac, then you are missing out. Mia Thornton may be the newbie on RHOP, but she is bringing it. And her co-star, Wendy Osefo, isn’t a fan of the new girl. At all.
Last season, viewers were treated to Wendy bragging about her PhD. During the season premiere, Wendy hosted a “nude interlude” party where she revealed her new breasts, and other assets. That’s right, Wendy has a new butt, and a new attitude. Mia, who is besties with Karen Huger, came with her to the party. Mia shared that her husband is 38 years older than her. But Mia was unable to compute her own age. Oof. She sided with Gizelle Bryant during Karen’s argument with Gizelle.
The newer cast members are shining bright on this season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. To be fair, the entire cast is giving viewers so much life, they’re practically immortal by now. However, a big shout out has to be given to Wendy Osefo & Mia Thornton. Wendy’s coming into her second season with new boobs, a new butt, and a whole new attitude. It’s quite the serve. Mia on the other hand is giving everyone messy chaos which means she fits in just fine.
The foundation for this season appears to be built upon the feud between Gizelle Bryant & Karen Huger. This is a fight that has been underway since the dawn of time. They are living legends, and they tow the line between friends and enemies with expert precision. They give the people what they need, but they also keep it real. It remains to be seen if they can continue towing that line. It feels like this season might be the point of no return.
Season Six of the Real Housewives of Potomac is here, and I am living for it. The toxic environment that resulted from Monique Samuels dragging Candiace Dillard by the wig cast a dark cloud over last season. Monique peaced out ahead of Season 6.
Wendy Osefo, who joined RHOP during Season 5, boasts an impressive resume. She has a PhD. Wendy is married to Eddie Osefo, and they have three kids. But all might not be well in Wendy’s world. There was an unconfirmed report that Eddie has a mistress and a secret baby.
I’m SO GLAD Juan Dixon is here right now! The Real Housewives of Potomac women are back, baby! And we have earned it. For anyone struggling through the Real Housewives of New York’s historical figure parties and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills peeping tom and leather pants gimmicks, rest easy. We’ve made it to the other side of the rainbow.
Of course, RHOP is missing wig-shifter Monique Samuels and sky bomber T’Challa in season 6. Are we staring down yet another numbed out franchise? Prayers for some season 5 grudge hangovers.
