Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Trouble In Paradise

The Real Housewives of Potomac is inching closer to the finale, and I never want it to end. A lot of the Real Housewives shows have fallen flat this year, but these women are having a breakout season. More specifically, Candiace Dillard has become a breakout star this season. You don’t have to like her, but you can’t deny the impact she’s had in her sophomore season.

Katie Rost’s mental health was called into question on last week’s episode. I can’t believe Ashley Darby went there. SUCH a low blow. Going into the latest Real Housewives of Potomac episode, I wondered if Robyn Dixon would actually confront Gizelle Bryant. There are a lot of issues bubbling beneath the surface begging to boil over.

Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Opening Old Wounds

THAT MICHAEL DARBY ENDING LAST WEEK THOUGH. I’m still shook from that unseen production footage. The Real Housewives of Potomac are DELIVERING this season in every way possible. So good. The footage they showed was so damaging to his and Ashley Darby’s credibility. I don’t think anyone believes his version of events at this point.

Can we also talk about Michael Darby’s somewhat obsession with Juan Dixon? Robyn Dixon isn’t saying it, but we all know “THE COMMENT” was about Juan. Her silence is speaking volumes. Monique Samuels is still Ashley’s only ally right now, which is straining her friendship with Candiace Dillard. Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant are being messy with this situation, but they have every right to be. Karma anyone?

Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Can I Get A Witness?

What a breakout season for The Real Housewives of Potomac. These women have stepped up their game in a BIG way. Last week’s episode was the biggest of the season thus far. The Michael Darby allegations finally made their way to the show. The revelation came with a lot of drama attached to it among the group. Ashley Darby tried to explain herself, but Candiace Dillard wasn’t having it. 

Speaking on Candiace, her friendship with Monique Samuels is on life support. They almost had a physical confrontation. Hide the umbrellas! Gizelle Bryant owned up to stirring the pot at dinner, but somehow Robyn Dixon is Ashley’s target. Also, Karen Huger gave us THE LINE of the century. Poor Katie Rost didn’t have a good time at her own event. Hopefully tonight is a little more positive!

Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Showdown At The Hoedown

Last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac was explosive in so many ways. It was a dinner party from hell. Candiace Dillard kicked Ashley Darby out of her home MULTIPLE TIMES. In addition to that, Robyn Dixon finally exposed Michael Darby’s alleged comments. However, that only happened after Gizelle Bryant forced the issue. The Grand Dame Karen Huger was relishing in the drama as well.

Ashley’s marriage wasn’t the only drama on display at the dinner though. Katie Rost confronted Monique Samuels about the alleged slave comments. They patched things up, but is it ever really over in Potomac? The episode ended with Ashley walking away from Robyn and seemingly ending their friendship. Hopefully their friendship can be mended soon. Tonight should be good with the showdown at the hoedown.

Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Days Of Our Knives

Stop sitting on The Real Housewives of Potomac. These women are SLAYING every week, and the season keeps getting better and better. After last week’s episode, the secret about Ashley Darby’s husband Michael Darby is coming out. FINALLY. This is what we’ve been waiting for. Plus, the last episode had that mega cliffhanger moment.

Candiace Dillard ended the last episode putting a knife in Ashley’s face. However, that isn’t the only drama lurking beneath the surface. Monique Samuels still has to answer to Katie Rost about alleged comments about her. Also, Robyn Dixon will HOPEFULLY tell us which Real Housewives of Potomac husband Michael’s comments were about.

Monique interview

Technically speaking, Monique Samuels is not an OG cast member on Real Housewives of Potomac. Practically speaking, she might as well be. The then-fledgling show was just trying to figure itself during the first season.

Even though Season 1 wasn’t a major hit right out of the gate, the show truly found its footing during the second year, which is when Monique joined the cast. Is that a coincidence? It might be, but there is no doubt that Monique puts the “real” in Real Housewives. She has kept it one hundred from the second she became a Housewife and she continues to do so two seasons later. Recently, the mom of three opened up to Reality Tea during an exclusive interview.

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.

Monique Samuels Thinks That Gizelle Bryant Accepting Her Apology Was “Very Random”

What is it about weddings that makes everyone want to make amends with someone they’ve wronged?  Is it the aura of love and good feelings?  Or the promise of new beginnings?  Or perhaps the result of too many drinks?  Whatever the reason there were a lot of olive branches going around at Candiace Dillard and Chris Bassett’s nuptials on the Real Housewives of Potomac.

Monique Samuels had to finesse her apology to Gizelle Bryant concerning the things she revealed about ex-boyfriend Sherman Douglas.  Monique wanted to speak to Sherman as well, but he had every intention of avoiding her and didn’t show up to the wedding.
