We’re only a handful of episodes into Real Housewives of Potomac season 5, but damn the drama is flowing. Such an epic franchise. New Housewife Wendy Osefo is already making statements about the “bullying” she endured all season. Karen Huger is saying Gizelle Bryant is jealous of Monique Samuels. Then there’s Candiace Dillard claiming some housewives wanted to question the paternity of Monique’s son. And if you have a pulse you’ve hopefully seen the season teaser of the physical fight between Candiace and Monique.
As a change of pace, the recent episodes have also included insight into Ashley Darby’s post-partum struggles. Don’t worry though. My girl is about to come through with some messy shenanigans for us to enjoy.
Candiace Dillard Bassett was left dumbfounded at the end of last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac. In her eyes, she’s the victim of a gang up. The new alliance between Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels is her worst nightmare right now. Everyone at the table wants her to give an apology, and she wants no part of it. Does Candiace have any true friends in this group? Besides Wendy Osefo, maybe not.
After all of the drama last year in her personal life, who would’ve thought Ashley Darby would invite them all to her home? This Sip and See is going to be lit. Charrisse Jordan is going to be there, and we might finally get some interaction between her and Monique. So many rumors are flying. ADDRESS THEM.
Sundays have become the best night of the week thanks to Real Housewives of Potomac. The ladies are really on their game this season. On tonight’s episode, Ashley Darby hosts a sip and see event for the ladies to meet her baby Dean. In real life, this sounds like a sweet event where everyone would be soft-spoken and considerate of an infant. But, on this show, it’s not gonna go that way.
Instead, Ashley will sit there holding baby Dean while the Real Housewives of Potomac cast argues. Candiace Dillard calls Monique Samuels a “flip-flopper,” but Monique isn’t having it, telling Candiace that she is the true flip-flopper in the group. Candiace’s friend Wendy Osefo and majorly stirs the pot asking the group which women are really friends. Clearly, they orchestrated this to redirect the narrative after the women came down on Candiace during last week’s episode.
Too many reality TV stars have put out music. Sometimes the music is “so bad that it’s good.” Other times, it’s just an embarrassing waste of time. Once in a blue moon, the track is actually a good song.
Recently, Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels released a song called “Drag Queens” that she believes is “inspiring.” You can be the judge on that one. Her nemesis Candiace Dillard disagrees with Monique’s take, obviously. And, as per usual, Candiace went way too far with her hating.
There’s really no clever introduction for this story. Homophobic tweets have resurfaced from Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Candiace Dillard. A majority of the posts she shared are from 2010 and 2011.
The already-controversial reality star has spoken out about the public’s discovery of these tweets.
During last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels had a one-on-one lunch… without arguing. They actually managed to have a good time and they hosted an event for Ashley Darby… which completely went south because of Ashley and Candiace Dillard’s unresolved issues.
It was all good in the scenes with Monique and Gizelle. However, in a confessional, Gizelle shared the rumors that Charrisse Jackson-Jordan had been spreading about Monique. We all expect Gizelle to throw people under the bus, so episode 2 of the season is a good of a time to start as any other. Gizelle said that “the word on the street” is that Monique is having an affair with her trainer. Now, Monique’s actually genuine friend Karen Huger is speaking out. Oh, and I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that Karen and Gizelle have been frenemies for years. So, duh, of course, she has Monique’s back.
There was so much foreshadowing on last week’s Real Housewives of Potomac episode of the looming fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett. The Real Housewives of Potomac are back into the groove of things, and there is no other franchise on fire like this right now. Everyone is so hype waiting for the physical altercation to play out between Monique and Candiace. Hopefully, we actually get to see it, and it’s not heavily edited.
It would be nice to get a more in-depth look at Wendy Osefo on this new episode. Last week was such a sweet taste, but I want more! She’s going to fit in great with this group. Class is officially in session, and Wendy is here to school these women. Another big issue in play is the motive behind Candiace’s friendship with Charrisse Jordan. Is she plotting behind Monique’s back? Is there an ulterior motive here?
Thankfully, the Real Housewives of Potomac are back with a new season. After a frustrating delay, they came through during the season 5 premiere episode last week.
Tonight, there’s another new episode and get ready for this one: Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels are actually on good terms, and they’re even going to a one-on-one lunch together. Beyond that, they both decided to co-host a dinner in honor of Ashley Darby, who has been admittedly struggling with postpartum depression. As nice as that sounds, we all know the peace between Gizelle and Monique will not last… most likely not even past this episode.
