The Real Housewives of Potomac is truly one of the best cities in the franchise. The women continue to bring it every season, and they’re only just headed into Season 6. Karen Huger is a bonafide OG who can throw shade and entertain like the best of them. Green-eyed bandits Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon always entertain, even if they’re both guilty of stirring the pot. Ashley Darby has been incredibly open about her journey to motherhood and marriage to
shady-ass Michael Darby. The fight between Candiace Dillard-Bassett and Monique Samuels will go down in history, no matter what side your own. If you’re not watching Potomac at this point, you’re likely the dizziest bitch at the table and tacky as hell, to put it in the words of the great Grand Dame herself.
Season 6 of RHOP is headed upon us this summer, and it’s bound to be filled with drama. The first trailer shows that CandeeGal will get into another fight. But instead of throwing fists, she’s throwing salads with newbie Mia Thornton, who apparently has the La Dame stamp of approval. Wendy Osefo will battle cheating and side baby rumors about Eddie Osefo, which he vehemently denies. Gizzy stirs the pot, Ashley deals with having a new baby with Creepy Mikey Darby and Karen screams about her pubic hair. We really couldn’t ask for more from these ladies, they’re a gift to the television world.
After a year of watching the Bravoverse take on the coronavirus pandemic (some Real Housewives were better than others), fans are really having the summer TV schedule we deserve. Come July, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the Real Housewives of New York and the Real Housewives of Potomac will be on simultaneously. And you know what that means — Grand Dame Karen Huger will be back on our TVs in no time. All is right with the world.
La Dame is the gem of RHOP. Her one-liners rival some of the best of all time from OGs like Nene Leakes and Bethenny Frankel. And she tells confusing stories and has some questionable reasoning from time to time, Karen always make for hilarious television. Thanks to a new trailer for Season 6, fans will see Karen continue to struggle in her marriage with Ray Huger, who might have his own side piece that lives in the phone. But they’re also rumored to be renewing their vows so who even knows what’s going on in the House of Huger. She also screams about her right to “show [her] pubic hair” and completely ignores Gizelle Bryant’s attempt to come for her. Remember, people come for Karen all the time. They just don’t find her.
Bravo has really given us so many gifts this month it’s hard to keep track. They granted us with the return of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and the Real Housewives of New York. BravoCon 2021 dates were announced after fans didn’t even know if the event would be held this year. And there’s been plenty of drama from Porsha Williams’ engagement to an explosive Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion featuring Melissa Gorga vs. Jennifer Aydin. The network also revealed that the Real Housewives of Potomac would be returning this summer, so needless to say Bravoholics have a lot to look forward to.
And now Bravo has given us another gift — the first RHOP trailer. The Potomac ladies are coming off a dramatic Season 5, with the Candiace Dillard-Bassett vs. Monique Samuels fight. Moni is out for good and new housewife Mia Thornton, a friend of Ashley Darby, is in. Ashley’s tumultuous relationship with Michael Darby is still intact after the couple welcomed a second baby, and I have faith he’ll find a way to mess up again next season.
The Real Housewives of Potomac are gearing up to return to our screens this summer, with a few new faces thrown into the mix. One person, and pet, we won’t be seeing is Monique Samuels and her beloved bird T’Challa after a drama-filled reunion pushed her to quit the show. Season 5 was a lot following Monique’s fight with Candiace Dillard to people having plenty of opinions about the reunion that split the Bravo-verse in half.
Monique had an action-packed four seasons on RHOP before calling it quits after Season 5. Now she’s doing her own thing, still working on her parenting website/podcast and unveiling the contents of her binder for any fans that still care to hear the tea. And, of course, being a super mom to her adorable little family.
The Bravo gods are blessing us this summer with new seasons of Real Housewives Of New York, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills AND the Real Housewives of Potomac. And that drama looks like it’s going to be serious in all three cities. It’s really the news we needed after all of the coronavirus shutdowns and delays in filming over the past year.
RHOP has been filming for its sixth season. But this time, Monique Samuels and her binder are not in the mix. The word on the street is some new faces will be joining OGs like Karen Huger, Ashley Darby and Gizelle Bryant. Also, Dr. Wendy Osefo is gearing up for her sophomore season, and it looks like she’ll be handling a few scandals of her own.
It’s been a hot minute since the Real Housewives of Potomac have graced our screens. Season 5 was more than iconic. Let’s not forget the infamous brawl between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. The collision split the remaining cast into two sides. At the time, the then-newest Housewife, Dr. Wendy Osefo, seemingly teamed up with Candiace and the green-eyed bandits.
One of the bandits, Gizelle Bryant, may be regretting her choice in alliance. Since filming wrapped, she has been catching heat from the unofficial #TeamMonique who are spilling tea left and right. To make matters worse, even Andy Cohen has come for Gizelle recently. Never a good sign. Not to mention the newest addition to the RHOP cast, Mia Thornton, has been rumored to have had an affair with another cast member’s husband. Is that more shade directed towards Gizelle and her cease-and-desist happy cheating ex-husband turned rekindled boyfriend? Yikes.
The Real Housewives of Potomac had its first big cast shakeup with the exit of Monique Samuels after four seasons on the show. Karen Huger, Robyn Dixon, Gizelle Bryant, and Ashley Darby have been the core four since the premiere season. Candiace Dillard joined in Season 3 and, after taking some newbie heat from Karen, fit into the group quite well. She brought the drama, but also solidified friendships overall.
The support she got from Robyn and Gizelle after her physical altercation with Monique helped her finish out the season. But Candiace was still visibly upset at the reunion, and questioned Monique’s accountability and remorse for the incident. The fallout from that event really dampened the mood at the reunion. While Karen called for healing within the group, Monique chose to take the easy route and quit the show.
