NeNe Leakes did not win any congeniality awards when Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 11 ended. In fact, she barely walked away from the reunion with any friends of all. Pretty much just Marlo Hampton was on her side.
Marlo and NeNe’s husband Gregg Leakes supported her at the SWAGG Boutique opening in Maryland. No one else from RHOA showed up, which isn’t at all surprising. Then again, she is still following Shamari DeVoe on Instagram after her massive unfollowing spree. Oh, and NeNe did post a birthday shout out for Kandi Burruss. That’s especially weird since Kandi recently said that they were never really friends. However, NeNe did get some Real Housewives support. Just not from anyone in her own cast. Real Housewives of Potomac cast members attended the SWAGG opening.
Below Deck’s Kate Chastain and Josiah Carter reunited in Palm Springs. Below Deck Mediterranean stars Hannah Ferrier and Jamie Jason shared a photo from Naples, Italy. Could they be filming Below Deck Med Season 4? Or are they just on a girls trip?
New Jersey Housewife Melissa Gorga went to the first New York Knicks game of the season with some friends. Real Housewives of Orange County’s tres amigas Shannon Beador, Vicki Gunvalson, and Tamra Judge all hung out rocking matching blazers.
There are few things funnier than a Real Housewife throwing some shade. Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Charrisse Jackson-Jordan has decided to take her shade throwing from the show and social media to the stage.
Just like Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes, Charrisse is trying her hand at standup comedy. Well, let’s hope that it’s not “just like NeNe.” We don’t need another scandal like those Uber “jokes” NeNe aimed at a member in the audience. Hopefully Charrisse has learned from NeNe’s mistakes in the comedy arena.
Last night the reunion of The Real Housewives of Potomac kicked off with a huge downer that Karen Huger’s dad had passed away from Alzheimer’s Disease just two weeks prior to taping, and the funeral had been a mere five days earlier. On top of that, her mom had died just seven months ago, so it’s been a terrible time for Karen. When your husband owing millions to the IRS is 3rd on your list of problems, then you know emotions are running wild. She hung in there for a while, but ultimately it got the best of her.
Before we dive into the minutia of grievances these women have, and since all season I have compared them to high schoolers (and sometimes junior high), I’d like to start with my reunion superlatives.
The season finale of the Real Housewives of Potomac left me with several questions: Where do Karen Huger and her husband Ray actually live? Will Ashley Darby ever poke enough holes in her husband’s condoms to get pregnant? Where was Monique Samuels all night? Did the producers throw this disjointed episode together last minute?
We pick up back in Great Falls where Robyn Dixon is dressed in full beard and delivering a pizza to Karen’s house while Gizelle Bryant and Ashley look on, laughing hysterically. Robyn gives the bell three tries before putting the half eaten pizza on the welcome mat and running back to the getaway car. Robyn admits that if someone rang her doorbell and she wasn’t expecting anyone, she wouldn’t answer either, so she’s not really surprised no one came to the door.
There is so much going with the Real Housewives of Potomac ladies this season. Loyalties are constantly shifting and shade is constantly being thrown. Monique Samuels joined the show as a close friend of Charrisse Jackson-Jordan’s, but they are far from that these days.
It’s safe to expect a reunion showdown between these two- especially after that messy Kyndall Douglas situation. Just as reminder, this is what happened: Gizelle Bryant used to date Sherman Douglas. Sherman was married to Kyndall. Charrisse and Monique have filmed several scenes with Kyndall this season and invited her to events that Gizelle attended. Beyond messy.
What do you get when half the cast of dress up as Wolverine, a guitarist for ZZ-Top, and Robert DeBarge and then hop into the Mystery Machine for a road trip out to Great Falls? It’s either a stroll through my childhood or the last five minutes of this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac. The ladies are back from France, they’re getting feisty, so let’s just jump into it.
Everyone seems to have a busy day planned. Robyn Dixon is closing on her fixer-upper in Hanover. Monique Samuels gets the breakdown of how the kids did while she was away. Candiace Dillard and her fiancé Chris are working on their wedding bodies with a trainer. Finally, Gizelle Bryant meets up with her hairdresser/ friend, Kal, for lunch.
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.
