Candiace Dillard RHOP

Candiace Dillard continues to tread into the waters of conflict.  None of her Real Housewives of Potomac castmates back up her persistent questioning of Ashley Darby’s intentions concerning motherhood.  So far, Candiace hasn’t justified her position enough and the other ladies are speculating that she is simply projecting issues with her mother onto Ashley.

As if the Candiace and Ashley conflict wasn’t enough, Karen Huger is crossing boundaries with Gizelle Bryant.  She has been bringing up Gizelle’s ex Sherman Douglas.  If the two were truly friends, perhaps it wouldn’t feel like an attack on Gizelle’s privacy.  But clearly, Karen has an ulterior motive.

RHOP Karen Huger Real Housewives Of Potomac

The drama on The Real Housewives of Potomac was at an all time high on last week’s episode. Karen Huger declined to go out with the ladies, leaving everyone confused. She chose to go “live” on Instagram rather than spend time with the other women. Grief makes you do crazy things I suppose!

In addition to the Karen drama, Ashley Darby confronted Candiace Dillard regarding comments about her fertility journey. Despite Ashley saying she was staying sober to get pregnant, she’d been drinking quite a lot in New Orleans. This did NOT sit well with Candiace. Tonight is sure to pick up where we left off with Ashley and Candiace at each other’s throats.

Ashley Darby Real Housewives Of Potomac RHOP

The Real Housewives of Potomac cast trip in New Orleans continues during tonight’s episode. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Real Housewives trip without some drama. All of these NOLA episodes have revolved around two fights: Karen Huger vs. Gizelle Bryant and Ashley Darby vs. Candiace Dillard. In contrast, Robyn Dixon, Katie Rost, and a pregnant Monique Samuels are just along as spectators.

And, yes, those same arguments continue on tonight’s new Real Housewives of Potomac episode.

RHOP Ashley Darby Gizelle Bryant Real Housewives Of Potomac

It seems we’ve come full circle on the Real Housewives of Potomac. After falling out of Monique Samuels’ good graces last season for questioning her drinking habits, Ashley Darby is now under scrutiny by Candiace Dillard for the same reason.  Since Ashley claims to be on karma’s “good side,” maybe irony is to blame instead.

Then there is Karen Huger.  She chose to spend her night in New Orleans talking to literally anyone in the world except Gizelle Bryant.  Gizelle is always in take-down mode and she clearly didn’t get enough of a rise out of Karen.  So she decided to throw a wrench into the entire evening.  A very well timed statement of, “Candiace doesn’t believe that you’re really trying to get pregnant,” escalated into a huge confrontation between Ashley and Candiace.

Ashley Darby And Michael Darby Reveal Baby’s Gender

Fans and cast members of the Real Housewives of Potomac have watched in confusion this season as Ashley Darby drank copious amounts of alcohol while also announcing that she and Michael Darby were trying for a baby.  It wasn’t just the drinking itself, but the fact that Ashley claimed to be abstaining from alcohol, while drinking alcohol.  She also took on many holistic approaches to conceiving, such as changing her diet and using a heating pad.  Apparently, avoiding the drink was not of those things.

Thankfully, Ashley did manage to conceive and has been enjoying a healthy pregnancy.  Ashley and Michael really do look thrilled.  The baby is due in July and the happy parents chose to wait to reveal the gender.  Unsurprisingly, Michael chose possibly the most adrenaline charged way to go about it.

RHOP Ashley Darby Gizelle Bryant Real Housewives Of Potomac

The Real Housewives of Potomac took over New Orleans last week and drama erupted. Last week Gizelle Bryant confronted Karen Huger about not confiding in her about her business projects. Karen didn’t appreciate it, and stormed out of the dinner leaving everyone speechless. So much for their relationship getting back on track! These women will never been in a good place it seems.

Gizelle and Karen’s drama isn’t the only issue looming on the horizon. The group still hasn’t addressed or brought up the Michael Darby situation. Robyn Dixon and Candiace Dillard have kept their mouth shut so far. However, how long will that last? Ashley Darby’s marriage could be rocked by the end of tonight’s episode. Let the drama begin!

RHOP Gizelle Bryant Real Housewives Of Potomac

Real Housewives of Potomac is back, and one thing is obvious: Gizelle Bryant and Grande Dame Karen Huger need to have a serious talk about where their friendship is headed. And there can be only one Queen of Potomac, ladies!

After doubting that Karen even lived in her new mansion last season, Gizelle tried to smooth things over by delivering some home-made cookies to Karen’s home. Karen opened the door, accepted the cookies, but did not invite Gizelle in. At least it wasn’t sprinkle cookies. Remember when Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga infamously brought the dreaded cookies to her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice?

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.
