Few franchises have captured my heart in the way that Real Housewives of Potomac has. While the first season left many confused about the point of the show, season 2 was some of the finest housewives content we’ve seen in a long time.
This season is no exception. Other franchises get caught up in beating the same storyline over and over for an entire season. Where RHOP gets it right is that they move from argument to argument seamlessly. The show is always giving us new content to look forward to along with breakout stars. Gizelle Bryant is a messy but lovable friend. Candiace Dillard is the unchallenged villain. Karen Huger has a knack for both inserting herself in drama while staying out of it. And let us not forget her epic press conference without press. Truly a moment of reality TV gold.
We have all been waiting for that physical altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. It has been teased for what feels like forever, but we didn’t get to it yet. Nevertheless, we have seen many cracks in their relationship this season on Real Housewives of Potomac.
Now, Gizelle Bryant is weight in on the dust up. And, obviously, she just had to throw in some shade aimed at Monique.
Another Michael Darby scandal is upon us on The Real Housewives Of Potomac. Ashley Darby’s husband is the gift that keeps on giving. Season after season, he’s serving us scandal after scandal. This time the scandal fell right into Candiace Dillard Bassett’s lap, and the tea is HOT. Michael was allegedly at a strip club talking about having both a boyfriend and a wife. Does Ashley know he has a boyfriend?
Besides the Michael stuff, the tension is mounting between Monique Samuels and Candiace. Every week, you can feel it getting closer to their physical encounter. There is so much animosity just bubbling beneath the surface. It’s only a matter of time before it boils over. As the season progresses, my own personal allegiance has shifted when it comes to this feud. Too many underhanded tactics by one of the parties has me severely questioning their authenticity.
Meanwhile, this text that Candiace Dillard
got claiming that Michael
has “a boyfriend a wife” finally comes up in conversation after way too many episodes of teasing us. How will Ashley
react? Well, given the way they’ve been able to move past numerous scandals and
the fact that they are expecting their second child together
, it’s fair to assume they worked past Michael’s latest scandal.
Michael is basically a full-time Real Housewives of Potomac cast member at this point. His shenanigans are the gift that keeps on giving. He definitely provides the most to the show in terms of storylines, up to this point at least.
This season of Real Housewives of Potomac has a lot of drama, but viewers are waiting to see the tension between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett explode. Last season, a very pregnant Monique threatened to drag Candiace.
Unfortunately for Candiace, Monique supposedly kept her promise. On October 16, 2019 Candiace and Monique were at a dinner party with RHOP cast members. Monique allegedly grabbed Candiace by her hair, and yanked her down. And yes, Bravo’s cameras were rolling.
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.
