At this point, every single woman on Real Housewives of Potomac is at odds with each other during this cast trip to France- except for Candiace Dillard who’s upset that she’s being ignored by everyone. Now Gizelle Bryant is paying attention to her by doing what Gizelle does best: throwing shade. It’s probably not the way that Candiace wants to be acknowledged by the cast members on this show, or maybe it is since it would give her a storyline…. and a chance to come back for a second season.
Considering that Charrisse Jackson-Jordan was an original cast member on Real Housewives of Potomac, it’s pretty suspect that she’s bringing Kyndall Douglas to events all of a sudden during Season 3….. after she had a falling out with Gizelle Bryant over those fireman affair rumors. Gizelled ated Kyndall’s ex-husband Sherman Douglas so it’s just a little too coincidental for it not be a dig aimed at Gizelle.
Charrisse wasn’t the only one who decided to film with Sherman’s ex. Monique Samuels invited her to events as well. At lease Monique is owning it, but she doesn’t want to take all of the blame for Kyndall’s presence.
Tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac was like reading a Nancy Drew book written by someone who has had way too much wine. If only the ladies could get to the bottom of Karen Huger’s missing wedding ring and what it could possibly mean, then maybe they could finally leave her alone and enjoy France. Karen, however, is not giving up any clues and is trying to throw everyone off her trail. And speaking of mysteries, can someone please explain to me what happened to Ashley Darby tonight? It’s like she went to bed with a head cold and woke up with an Incredible Hulk sized bad attitude. What is in French OTC medication anyway? At least tonight’s arguments weren’t too public, so…PROGRESS!
But first we are back at breakfast on the balcony with Gizelle Bryant arguing with Monique Samuels. Gizelle is confused why Monique would go out of her way to hurt her by inviting Kyndall when she thought they were fine. She’s not jealous because every day she wakes up knowing she’s the baddest thing walking. And just so you know, she really doesn’t care about Sherman’s past. She decides that she and Monique won’t ever be besties, but she can move past this, call a truce, and eat some pancakes. Determined to make a graceful exit, she walks to the door which won’t open. She struggles for a moment. Between giggles Monique tells her to try to the other door. It won’t slide either. Ohhhh… you have to push it open! Success!
That last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac was all sorts of messy. Gizelle Bryant told Robyn Dixon that the other ladies didn’t want to wait for her to get ready even though they said they would.
Charrisse Jackson-Jordan admitted that she invited Kyndall Douglas to events to get revenge on Gizelle for those fireman rumors last year. Candiace Dillard even confronted Monique Samuels for laughing in her face in response to her story about her marital difficulties “being in the spotlight.” There was a lot to unpack- just from that episode alone.
No one can make mountains out of molehills like the women of the Real Housewives of Potomac. This week we’re back in France. The scenery was fantastic and the French were charming. But how can these women be at dinner and not showcase the food and wine? Personally, I could have done with fewer petty fights and more culture and scenery. Should we still be caring about Monique Samuels’ guest list offending Gizelle Bryant when she wasn’t even at the gala (which was months ago)? I vote no, but obviously, some thought otherwise.
We begin back at the hotel lobby where the argument between Gizelle and Karen Huger continues. Surprisingly, it’s Candiace Dillard to the rescue. She drags Karen out of the hotel and into the awaiting black van like she’s in some James Bond movie.
Don’t get me wrong…I love The Real Housewives of Potomac. They’re funny, smart, look great, and are always shady. But ladies, when you’re in France, keep your voice down, your opinions low key, your competitiveness to a minimum, and for goodness sakes, don’t scare the natives.
It’s a few short days before the trip to France and everyone is just beginning their day. Karen Huger is out in Great Falls already hitting the Champagne. Hey, it’s five o’clock somewhere, maybe even in Cannes. Candiace Dillard and her fiancé Chris are doing what I suspect is all they ever do together: Talking weddings. Or more succinctly, Candiace asks him about what he wants in the wedding registry. I don’t think Chris knows what a registry is, because he answers “Get laid every night.” Sorry Chris, you won’t find that at Pottery Barn. Gizelle Bryant, her mom, and her girls are going out to breakfast. Her mom will be watching the girls while she is in France. Since the gang’s all here, Gizelle gives them an update on the Sherman situation. The girls are sad that Sherman won’t be around anymore, but they’ll be fine. Gizelle reminds them that they’ll never get rid of her.
Now that she has spent a lot of time with her fellow Housewives, which ones will actually make the cut when it comes to her wedding guest list? Apparently Candiace is still sorting that all out, but there is one Potomac Housewife that she is definitely not inviting.
After a week-long break, The Real Housewives of Potomac are back and while they don’t seem to speak a lick of French, the women do have snooty down to a science. I joke – the French are wonderful people and next week the American invasion by the Housewives will have the entire country chain smoking, wine guzzling and carb loading on crusty bread. In other words, a typical Monday. But first, there are vendettas to be settled, invitations to craft, and mimes to terrorize.
Karen Huger and Candiace Dillard are meeting for a Garra rufa pedicure. I said last time that I didn’t know these salons were BYOB. Imagine my surprise learning this type of fish pedicure is still a thing. I had to google it, and yes, if you don’t live in one of the ten states that have banned it, you too can have fish sucking on your feet. As soon as they are settled and the fish are doing whatever it is the fish do, in walks Sherman’s ex, Kyndall.
