I tuned into the Season 3 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Potomac dying to know what went down behind the scenes with Karen Huger’s financial situation, her husband Ray Huger’s $3 million dollar tax debt, and their sudden move to Great Falls after two seasons of bragging about being the self-proclaimed “Grand Dame of Potomac.”
Karen’s delusions of grandeur- and not knowing what a blog is- gave me the entertainment that I expected, but we were also hit with some raw emotions watching Ashley Darby pack up her apartment to move back in with her estranged husband Michael Darby. The realness of Ashley and Michael trying to salvage their marriage was in stark contrast to the Huger family fakery.
Like it or not, The Real Housewives of Potomac is back for a third season. After two tepid seasons, the ladies are back for round three. Hopefully third time is the charm.
Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Ashley Darby, Robyn Dixon, and Monique Samuels will be back as full-time cast members. Charrisse Jackson-Jordan got demoted (or has some excuse about why she’s taking more time for herself) and is now a “Friend of the Housewives.” And of course there’s a new girl that Gizelle is bound to hate on: Candiace Dillard, a former Miss United States.

Bravo is bringing back the Real Housewives Awards for the fourth year in a row. This time, the ladies from across the franchise will compete for fans’ votes in various categories within the back-to-school theme.
Fortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which is nice. Unfortunately, it seems like this list was compiled with the intention to make sure everyone feels included, which means that many of the nominations do not make sense. Nevertheless, the fandom will (hopefully) make the right decisions. Either way you slice it, nominating every housewife is a good way to ensure that a lot of them show up when the awards are handed out. So at least that’s good.
It was pretty painful to watch Karen Huger try and explain herself during that Real Housewives of Potomac reunion. Sure, her finances are her business, but then again she did sign up to be on a reality TV show about her life. So it’s hard to know what she should and shouldn’t share.
Nevertheless, there are plenty of things that don’t add up. Was Karen downsizing? Why did she move into a bigger house? Did she move because of her parents? None of it makes any sense, and there’s that tax lien which has never been addressed on the show.
The most shocking part of the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion was when Ashley Darby announced that she is living separately from her husband Michael Darby. It got even crazier when Michael actually blamed Gizelle Bryant, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, and Robyn Dixon for their marital issues.
Sure, the gossiping didn’t help, but there’s no way that three outsiders were actually responsible for the demise of Ashley and Michael’s relationship. So of course Gizelle is standing up for herself and throwing some serious shade- as per usual.
With part two of the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion, we are finally drawing to a close on the season. A messy, messy season. Case in point, we left last week’s reunion with Robyn Dixon trash talking cast mate Ashley Darby for all of her pot stirring and not minding her own business when it comes to Robyn’s marriage/not marriage. We rejoin part two in the exact same spot, with the ladies checking their phones, being touched up by makeup, and Robyn telling Charrisse Jackson-Jordan that she would beat Ashley’s ass if it wasn’t for the cameras.
This doesn’t seem like a great place to pick up and thankfully, it’s not, so instead, the husbands (Big Drawers and the BBG), ex-husbands (Juan), and soon to be ex-husbands (Michael) join the stage. Andy is not about to waste any precious time and goes right in on Juan, asking why he was so reluctant to join them. Clearly, someone from Bravo had to get on the phone and beg.
