Real Housewives Of Potomac Premiere Delayed Because Of Coronavirus

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.

Real Housewives Of Potomac Introduce A New Cast Member For Season 5
Real Housewives of Potomac had a pretty solid cast the past four seasons.  Original housewives Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, and Ashley Darby provided just the right mix of drama and friendship.  Gizelle could always be counted on for directing snarky comments towards frenemy Karen while Robyn hung on her coattails.  Monique Samuels joined the cast in Season 2.  She brought a fun vibe to the group, as well as a more laid-back attitude overall.
Things got heavy last season when Ashley’s husband Michael Darby was accused of sexual assault.  The rumors were peaking during filming and caused tensions within the group as Ashley was pressed for answers.  The housewife that seemed most affected was Candiace Dillard.  Candiace went after Ashley with some seemingly misplaced anger, probably something she meant to direct to mama Dorothy.  At this point, the mother-daughter bickering is getting a bit tired.  As are a few other storylines.   Did anyone really care about Robyn rekindling her love life with ex-husband Juan Dixon last season?  How about the underwhelming reveal of Karen’s fragrance line?  Maybe it’s time to bring some new energy to the show.

During these tough times, there is one bit of good news. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 trailer dropped and it looks amazing! Everyone from last season is back and they are joined by Wendy Osefo, which isn’t surprising since pictures from the cast photoshoot leaked a few months ago and Wendy was in them.

It looks like everyone is bringing it this year. Karen Huger is right when she quips, “Five years, boo boo, and we going strong.”

RHOA-NeNe-Leakes

The idea of an all-star edition of Real Housewives has been floating around for ages. Previously, Andy Cohen had a bunch of OG Real Housewives on Watch What Happens Live for a Christmas special. Then, he followed up with a Real Housewives-filled baby shower, that sadly wasn’t filmed.

It’s always so entertaining to see Real Housewives from different shows interacting with each other and Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes has a great idea for a new show. Picture this: The View, but with Real Housewives of as hosts.

Teddi Mellencamp Edwin Arroyave new baby

Yesterday, Teddi Mellencamp started her day as she usually does: documenting her morning workout on Instagram. Throughout the day, she posted weight loss progress photos from her clients. She continued to post selfie videos for the remainder of the day. The usual stuff, you know? Well, except for the end the day. That was a little different than her usual routine.

Teddi gave birth to her third child, with husband Edwin Arroyave by her side. Yes, she actually got in a workout session and documented her day, even giving a post-epidural update. Talk about some, ummm, “unique” content. But then again, this is 2020. I’m sure she’s not the only documenting her birth on social media. At least she didn’t have a glam squad on hand, which is a #TotalHousewifeMove

Monique Samuels Real Housewives Of Potomac RHOP

When is Real Housewives of Potomac returning for Season 5? There have been many rumors about what really went down during an altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. Candiace filed charges against Monique. Monique filed charges against Candiace.

This has all been so public and so private at the same time. Obviously, court filings are a matter of private record. However, the fans still don’t know exactly what happened.

Robyn Dixon Juan Dixon Engagement

We all saw that video circulating on Instagram this past weekend, but now Robyn Dixon has officially confirmed that she and Juan Dixon are engaged, again. Real Housewives of Potomac viewers recall that they were pulling a Dolores and Frank Catania during Season 1: living together as exes. However, the Catanias were not sleeping in the same bed.

Slowly, their relationship shifted from just being co-parents to something more romantic. Before RHOP got started, Juan and Robyn divorced following infidelity on his part. However, the RHOP viewers didn’t see any of that. Instead, we’ve been rooting for Juan and Robyn to slowly inch their way back to husband and wife. I care a lot more about this than Robyn’s house flipping storyline.

Gizelle Bryant On Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard’s Physical Altercation: “As Black Women, We are Better Than Anything Physical”; Ashley Darby Weighs In

Normally, I think of myself as a pretty patient person. However, that doesn’t apply to Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5. I need new RHOP and I need it now. Unfortunately for me, the season is still in production. However, it’s not as if all of the storylines are completely secret.

We have all heard about the “alleged” physical altercation that went down between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. As Gizelle Bryant would say (a million times over), “the word on the street” is that it all started when Candiace hit Monique in the face with a wine glass. Then, Monique allegedly pulled her down by the hair. Well, Candiace was begging Monique to drag her all of Season 4, but Monique was pregnant. Now, I’m sure Candiace is shook. She took legal action and Monique countersued.  It sounds like such a hot mess and I can’t help flashing back to the Season 4 reunion. Monique and Candiace, cried, hugged, and vowed to repair their fractured friendship. Welp, that’s clearly out the window at this point.
