When Real Housewives of Potomac Season 3 started, Gizelle Bryant’s man Sherman Douglas was all about her relationship. They stomped grapes together. He had a sweet relationship with her three daughters. And then poof he disappeared.
He was supposed to show up for a double date with Gizelle, Robyn Dixon, and Juan Dixon, but Gizelle ended up going alone with news that they broke up. It’s sad that they parted ways, but at least it didn’t happen on camera.
At this point, the Real Housewives of Potomac fans should not expect to get a straight answer from Karen Huger about her previous knowledge of Ray Huger’s tax problems. She has been talking in circles and deflecting all season and she did the same thing during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live last night with Candiace Dillard.
She continued to play up the Grand Dame of Potomac persona and give confusing answers to almost every question that Andy Cohen asked her.
That last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac wasn’t an easy one for Robyn Dixon. She was miffed when she saw a meme about herself on a Monique Samuels fan page- which she accused Monique of running herself. Ashley Darby came at Robyn with even more judgments about her non-relationship with ex-husband Juan Dixon.
On top of that, Robyn’s go-to girl in the cast, Gizelle Bryant, wasn’t around for all the drama because she was at an event in the Hamptons. This means that Robyn had to fend for herself- at the time. Now Gizelle is coming to her friend’s defense.
The last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac started out with the conclusion of Karen Huger’s “press conference,” but the focus of the drama shifted to Robyn Dixon for the rest of the episode. Robyn got into it with Monique Samuels at Monique’s party in her own home and Ashley Darby at the same event.
Karen was probably relieved to have someone else in the line of fire, but her refusal to fess up to financial problems is still the main story line of the season.
A shady financial situation always guarantees a great story line on any Real Housewives show. So of course, the Season 3 premiere episode of Real Housewives of Potomac was all about Karen Huger’s deflection over her husband Ray Huger’s very public $3 million tax debt.
It all culminated in a sit-down lunch with Karen and Robyn Dixon. Karen wanted to thank Robyn for being there for her – after pointing out that she called Gizelle Bryant first and she didn’t answer the phone- but the lunch did not go well. Robyn made it clear that she does have sympathy for Karen and her family, but she can’t help questioning just how much Karen actually knew. And of course, Karen went ballistic, got overly defensive, and did what she could to deflect from the topic of discussion.
The Season 3 premiere of Real Housewives of Potomac is quickly approaching. The trailer has been released, the cast has been announced, and now the fans are blessed with the taglines for the upcoming season.
In all honesty, I’ve heard better. Then again, this franchise has been going strong since 2006, with many cities, and even more Housewives, so I get: a lot of the iconic quotes have already been used. Nevertheless, some of these are actually pretty good. And others are representative of the Potomac series: too much, yet not enough at the same time.
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.
Even though the reunion episodes are supposed tie up the loose ends from a season, it really just leaves the Real Housewives of Potomac stars with more loose ends to tie up based on the comments the cast made during the reunion. One person who is never shy about sharing her opinion is Gizelle Bryant.
Gizelle has had major issues with everyone in the cast except for her fellow green-eyed bestie Robyn Dixon. Needless to say, she has a lot of explaining to do and by that I mean a lot of shade to throw.
