After the Uber comment controversy, NeNe Leakes is back at it with her comedy show. Her latest show went down in Washington, D.C. and she had her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Cynthia Bailey on hand for support.
Real Housewives of Potomac cast members Karen Huger, Candiace Dilliard, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, and Monique Samuels turned the comedy show into an Atlanta/Potomac crossover by showing up to support NeNe as well. Karen’s husband Ray Huger, Candiace’s fiancé Chris Bassett, and Monique’s husband Chris Samuels were also on hand to check out NeNe doing her thing in the nation’s Capitol.
If The Real Housewives of Potomac was a sorority, the first four episodes of the season were Rush Week for Candiace Dillard. Tonight was her hazing and she handled it by putting the women in plastic bubbles and knocking the crap out of anyone who got in her way.
Ashley Darby is now a certified Yogi and she’s a teacher in training. Her first two victims are Candiace and Gizelle Bryant. These two are yoga novices but in the spirit of sisterhood they are willing to give Ashley’s class a go. They start with “Ommm’s” and Gizelle looks around like I didn’t know we’d be humming though our exercise and Candiace is stoked because it’s like singing and that was her talent in the pageants back in the day! She is all in for yoga now! Her life really is a pageant. But wait…Gizelle just found her happy place doing Downward Facing Dog, so she likes it too.
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.
