After a coronavirus-induced delay, Real Housewives of Potomac season 5 is finally approaching. The show returns for season five on Sunday, August 2 at 8 pm.
After a stellar season four, the anticipation for season five is building up. And, now, we have the taglines for the upcoming season. A good tagline makes you laugh and serves as the perfect preview of what to expect from someone’s storyline for the season.
Real Housewives of Potomac season 4 was fire. The show has been getting better and better every year. We were all so excited for the ladies to return for the season 5 premiere in May. However, unfortunately, the premiere was very vaguely pushed back until “summer 2020.”
Because of the pandemic, there are very few shows that are filmed and ready to go. Additionally, it just takes longer for the editors to put the editors together from home in comparison to when they are in their normal offices. Plus, other Bravo shows had to put filming on hold, meaning that at some point, they’re bound to be out of new episodes. Yes, it made total sense to push back the premiere, but the news was still a major bummer to the Real Housewives of Potomac fans.
Marlo Hampton is the queen of stirring the pot on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. But it turns out the perennial Friend of the Housewives can also unite a host of Bravo stars for a good cause.
The outspoken fashionista recently organized a PSA for Black Lives Matter starring the casts of RHOA, Real Housewives of Potomac, and Married to Medicine, and the results are nothing short of powerful.
It’s only been one day since the reality show world was rocked to its core. In case you live under a rock, Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired for racist behavior. The target of their behavior was ex-cast mate, Faith Stowers, who is black. A few years ago, both Stassi and Kristen falsely accused her of stealing and called the cops on her. Their claims were completely baseless and cruel.
In addition to Stassi and Kristen being fired, Bravo also made the (correct call) to fire two more VPR stars. In the same announcement, Bravo confirmed that newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni are donzo. Honestly, this was long overdue considering we found out mid-season that Max and Brett have a history of racist tweets.
Normally, reality TV is lighthearted and provides a sense of escape. However, today’s reality stars are taking on important causes, Black Lives Matter. Bethenny Frankel raised funds for 100 black-owned businesses in less than 24 hours. Porsha Williams joined in on the protest and even offered bail money and lawyers to people who got arrested. She also detailed her experience getting tear-gassed at the peaceful protest. Other reality stars used their voices, demanding justice for George Floyd and all of the other African Americans who have been profiled and treated unfairly.
Bravo recently announced that there will be a special two-part episode of Watch What Happens Live on Monday, June 8 at 11 PM. The special will focus on the Black Lives Matter movement.
Are you excited for the new season of Real Housewives of Potomac? The ladies have some drama coming in the form of public wig-dragging, ALLEGEDLY, combined with their volatile existing dynamic. Ahead of the premier, some interesting and not entirely unexpected turmoil is ramping up for Ashley Darby. Ashley is the wife of Michael Darby and new mom to a baby boy. Though she navigated some questionable behavior from her husband in the past, it looks like she’s about to go through it again. Shocker.
Michael has had some previous controversial situations. In 2018 he was accused of sexual assault, following groping accusations by a Bravo cameraman. Ultimately those charges were dropped but Michael’s image didn’t exactly recover. Rumors of past infidelities have haunted him, especially since the nature of his supposed dalliances may or may not have been with another man. Well look out because some new info has popped up and it isn’t particularly flattering. While Ashley has gotten an overwhelming amount of practice defending Michael’s antics in the past, this time we have…video.
Every year, Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant’s tagline has something to do with “the word on the street.” Well, the “word on the street” was that Gizelle’s
cheating ex-husband/current boyfriend Pastor Jamal Bryant fathered a child with a member of his congregation.
During the Season 4 reunion, Gizelle revealed that she was back with the father of her three children, giving us all Robyn Dixon and Juan Dixon-esque hopes. So, is the word on the street actually accurate. Let’s see what Jamal has to say.
One of the few good things to help get through this quarantine has been the Bravo programming. The network has blessed us with some throwback marathons. We’ve had new episodes of Real Housewives of New York, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Shahs of Sunset, Vanderpump Rules, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, and more. Even Watch What Happens Live has started filming episodes via webcam to adjust to life during the coronavirus pandemic.
Every day, I look forward to that night’s new Bravo show, because, let’s face it, I have nowhere to go. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 premiere is right around the corner. Oh, wait. It was right around the corner. Unfortunately, plans have changed.
