Charrisse shared her two cents on Karen removing Gizelle and Robyn from her event. “I’m over Karen calling security at the sight of not wanting to be bothered by something. Why on one hand would you intentionally invite Kyndall to be faced with Gizelle (being messy) and when confronted, wimp out and call security. If you’re going to be a bad Batch (in Karen’s voice) and do bold things, then you have to be willing to face the repercussion that come with being a bad batch!”
I wonder if now that Monique Samuels is expecting her third child she will be less involved with the grandstanding drama that consumes this season of Real Housewives of Potomac. It’s highly unlikely, but that’s why we watch, isn’t it? After an explosive charity showdown that has been building for a several episode arc (who knew that could be a thing?), the ladies are speaking their truths and hurling insults as they react to the latest episode.
From Karen Huger’s Alzheimer’s benefit that required security to Gizelle Bryant’s CBC drama, the women of RHOP made several scenes. On the front lines with Gizelle and Karen stood Robyn Dixon, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, and Monique…and I’m still not sure who is one whose side anymore. These chicks change alliances like most people change underwear!
The Real Housewives of Potomac have stepped up their game this season, and the theme of the women’s antics seems to be just general messiness. I think this crew takes the franchise’s cake for pot-stirring and smack talk, yet they are all contractually obligated able to share some laughs on a Bravo funded vacation. At least it’s fun to watch!
The drama of late has festered along the backdrop of several charity events, and if you think these women are above throwing shade when it comes to good causes, you would be sorely mistaken. At Karen Huger’s Alzheimer’s fundraiser, she kicked out Gizelle Bryant and Robin Dixon, and Gizelle managed to get into it with Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. Of course, doesn’t Gizelle get into it with everyone? The Word on the Street has some words of her own for Karen, Charrisse, and Monique Samuels.
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.
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.
Is it a coincidence that Robyn Dixon and Monique Samuels planned events for the same night so soon after their scuffle at Karen Huger’sscent event? Maybe. Most likely not, but maybe. So of course, Robyn and Monique are taking their costars RSVP’s very personally. It’s not just choosing an event. It is choosing Monique over Robyn and vice versa.
Even though Monique joined Real Housewives of Potomac as a friend of Charrisse Jackson-Jordan’s, Robyn has been friend with Charrisse for 14 years. Needless to say, it did not sit well with Robyn when Charrisse said she was going to Monique’s event over Robyn’s.
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”.
