The ladies of Real Housewives of Potomac were vacationing in the Big Easy this week. But despite the name of the locale, navigating this group is no small feat. Take Karen Huger. Even after hosting Gizelle Bryant in her home, Karen still knew to have her guard up.
And for good reason it seems. Gizelle chose to air her grievances with Karen publicly at a group lunch. Karen ended up walking away from the confrontation and, potentially the whole trip to New Orleans. If only these two could agree on what friendship entails.
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.
Every season there are Real Housewives who hype up product lines that never end up existing. It is all too common. Well, Karen Huger is not one of those Housewives.
After a lot of talk, the Real Housewives of Potomac star launched her fragrance. Of course, her desire to create a fragrance was met with a lot of doubt (especially from Gizelle Bryant). Now, her perfume is very much a real thing. In fact, Karen recently hosted a launch party. Some of the Potomac Housewives were there. However, there were no signs of the green eyed bandits, i.e. Gizelle and Robyn Dixon. This is not a surprise. At all.
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.
On last week’s episode, of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Michael Darby found himself in some hot water! He allegedly made sexual comments towards another man, and Robyn Dixon of all people overhead him. It’ll be interesting to see the fallout if Robyn or Candiace Dillard decided to reveal what they heard. This could have massive ramifications on his marriage to Ashley Darby.
Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant also ended up on semi decent terms after last week. Their relationship is always changing so they might be back in bad terms by the end of this episode. Why even are the fighting anymore? At this point it seems like they’re just fighting for the sake of it and for no real reason. It’s so back and forth so hopefully they’ll make further forward progress this week.
Ashley Darby is one member of the Real Housewives of Potomac cast who didn’t offer an apology at Candiace Dilliard’s wedding. While Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels took advantage of the general feelings of goodwill at this event. However, Ashley did not. Instead, she took advantage of the open bar.
She obviously had a fantastic time, but what were her thoughts about the group dynamic at the wedding? And how did she feel about running into castmates that she may have been trying to avoid?
Candiace Dillard’s fabulous Real Housewives of Potomac wedding aired last week, but it’s time to move on. There’s plenty of drama on the horizon, and this week is Katie Rost’s return! Katie back in the fold assures viewers they are in for some crazy situations. Also, we get to see the next chapter in the never-ending Gizelle Bryant/Karen Huger frenemy saga.
Michael Darby’s sexual comments toward men will likely play a big part in the episode. His marriage with Ashley Darby is always clouded in mystery. Nobody knows what’s real with the two of them. The upcoming scandal is going to be very telling when it comes to the legitimacy of their relationship. I guess we’ll see!
