Are you excited for the new season of Real Housewives of Potomac? The ladies have some drama coming in the form of public wig-dragging, ALLEGEDLY, combined with their volatile existing dynamic. Ahead of the premier, some interesting and not entirely unexpected turmoil is ramping up for Ashley Darby. Ashley is the wife of Michael Darby and new mom to a baby boy. Though she navigated some questionable behavior from her husband in the past, it looks like she’s about to go through it again. Shocker.
Michael has had some previous controversial situations. In 2018 he was accused of sexual assault, following groping accusations by a Bravo cameraman. Ultimately those charges were dropped but Michael’s image didn’t exactly recover. Rumors of past infidelities have haunted him, especially since the nature of his supposed dalliances may or may not have been with another man. Well look out because some new info has popped up and it isn’t particularly flattering. While Ashley has gotten an overwhelming amount of practice defending Michael’s antics in the past, this time we have…video.
One of the few good things to help get through this quarantine has been the Bravo programming. The network has blessed us with some throwback marathons. We’ve had new episodes of Real Housewives of New York, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Shahs of Sunset, Vanderpump Rules, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, and more. Even Watch What Happens Live has started filming episodes via webcam to adjust to life during the coronavirus pandemic.
Every day, I look forward to that night’s new Bravo show, because, let’s face it, I have nowhere to go. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 premiere is right around the corner. Oh, wait. It was right around the corner. Unfortunately, plans have changed.
Even with the quarantine, plenty of reality TV stars celebrated Easter. Some of them even dressed up to eat dinner in the dining room, which is way more than what I did. Props to them.
Real Housewives of New York star Dorinda Medley wore bunny ears in the Berkshires. Margaret Josephs spent some quality time with her mom, Marge Senior. Terry Dubrow, Heather Dubrow, and their kids all wore matching Easter pajamas. I had no idea that was a thing. But, again, they put a lot more effort into getting dressed than I did yesterday.
During these tough times, there is one bit of good news. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 trailer dropped and it looks amazing! Everyone from last season is back and they are joined by Wendy Osefo, which isn’t surprising since pictures from the cast photoshoot leaked a few months ago and Wendy was in them.
It looks like everyone is bringing it this year. Karen Huger is right when she quips, “Five years, boo boo, and we going strong.”
We all saw that video circulating on Instagram this past weekend, but now Robyn Dixon has officially confirmed that she and Juan Dixon are engaged, again. Real Housewives of Potomac viewers recall that they were pulling a Dolores and Frank Catania during Season 1: living together as exes. However, the Catanias were not sleeping in the same bed.
Slowly, their relationship shifted from just being co-parents to something more romantic. Before RHOP got started, Juan and Robyn divorced following infidelity on his part. However, the RHOP viewers didn’t see any of that. Instead, we’ve been rooting for Juan and Robyn to slowly inch their way back to husband and wife. I care a lot more about this than Robyn’s house flipping storyline.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
Ashley Darby had a long journey to motherhood. It became one of her main storylines on the Real Housewives of Potomac. Ashley took great care to prepare her body for pregnancy. She followed a holistic diet, meditated, and even tried to reconnect with her estranged father.
This mind body approach seemed to work for Ashley because she finally conceived. She and husband Michael Darby welcomed son Dean in July of this year.
