In her blog this week, Candiace explains that she knew her dad would say no when she called to ask for more wedding money, but she had to try anyway. “Ugh. I hated everything about that money conversation. I DO think my dad should give more – I’m his only daughter and I’m only getting married once. I already had a feeling my dad was going to say no before I even hit ‘dial’ on my phone so I should have just left it alone. I didn’t want to wonder ‘what if’ though, so I just went for it.”
Have there ever been more frivolous fights on The Real Housewives of Potomac than the ones we witnessed tonight? Okay, season 1 had its moments, but the ladies were new to reality TV and could be forgiven for rookie mistakes. But several scenes tonight top my list of stupid stuff to fight about.
Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon are on a mission to deliver a message to Karen Huger. I’m not sure exactly what their message is other than Robyn wants to say “Liar, liar, pants on fire”, and Gizelle wants to see Karen embarrassed. I’m getting Déjà vu from last year when the Green-Eyed Bandits crashed in to OZ while Ashley Darby was working and Robyn came at her, finger in face, screaming that Ashley needed to stop talking about Juan.
Karen invited Gizelle Bryant’s (super recent) ex-boyfriend Sherman Douglas’ ex-wife Kyndall Douglas to her event. Karen has never mentioned Kyndall before, but she did everything possible to get Kyndall at her event. She even told Kyndall that she didn’t have to pay for a ticket to get in- unlike everyone else who attended. Obviously, Karen was trying to get under Gizelle’s skin with Kyndall’s presence. Everyone saw through that- even Karen’s girl Candiace.
How is it that nearly the entire cast of The Real Housewives of Potomac imploded over something as nice as three charity events? Before tonight I really didn’t think it could happen. But giant egos and old vendettas came together in a perfect convergence zone, and the fallout will last the rest of the season. Tonight was all about charities but nothing about giving.
It’s date night for Karen Huger and her husband, Ray. He has been busy handling all the tax problems and Karen is occupying her time with her new perfume line and her charity, O Huger, which is named after Ray’s mom, Odessa. The foundation is to support the Alzheimer’s Association and not only does Odessa suffer from it, but Karen’s mother does as well. Both her parents are in bad health, but Karen has told her mother she’s not ready to let her mom pass just yet. In a moment of lucidity, her mom tells Karen she’s proud of her, and I can’t help but get emotional too. Good grief, Karen, we’re only five minutes in, let’s move on to something happy before we’re all a mess.
Monique didn’t seem to care if people chose Robyn’s event over hers, but Robyn took it very personally when some of the women decided to attend Monique’s. Karen Huger said that she would try to go to both, but Robyn just wasn’t having it. Can we get back to talking about tax evasion and alleged affairs with blue-eyed men? Those storylines were way more interesting than this “drama”.
Can I just say out loud how much I’m enjoying the Real Housewives of Potomac this season? Not only have the women stepped up their crazy, but their men have also come to play. I never expect the guys to partake in the fracas, but Juan Dixon and Michael Darby (and let’s not forget the very absent Sherman 2F) were more than up for the challenge this week.
We check in on everyone starting their day. From making breakfast to shopping to yoga, these women are living the good life. Gizelle Bryant is starting her day by visiting her local vampire dermatologist to get her own blood transferred into her face. The transfusion increases collagen, and if I can look as good as Gizelle afterward, count me in! Robyn Dixon is there for moral support. Gizelle says she is having a little birthday get together with all the ladies. Well, not the Chihuahua formerly known as Candiace Dillard who came at her yapping and nipping at her heels when they were in Nemacolin. Gizelle is going to kennel that bitch for a while until Candiace stops peeing on the carpet and generally misbehaving. The other no-show is likely Sherman 2F (yes he’s once again 2F and we find out later from Monique just how many F’s ol’ Sherm actually gives).
Most of us (myself included) slept on Real Housewives of Potomacfor its first two seasons- for good reason- but they are not playing around when it comes to Season 3. There is just so much going on with every single cast member this time around.
They are all bringing it and it sounds like tonight’s episode will be another dramatic one.
