Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Cayman We Get Along?

OH MY! The last Real Housewives of Potomac episode was great. Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger are at odds again. This is a feud that will NEVER end, and I don’t know that I want it to. It’s kind of fun seeing which one will be messier or shadier each episode. However, I’m slightly concerned about Katie Rost. The preview showed that she goes missing tonight! Someone save this poor girl.

We’re getting a cast trip tonight which means we’re getting tons of drama. Has there ever been a cast trip on Real Housewives history that has no drama? Someone hit us in the comments with those stats. It’s a foregone conclusion at this point that an international trip means global scale showdowns.

RHOP Real Housewives Of Potomac

Is it even a Real Housewives of Potomac cast trip if Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger aren’t arguing? The ladies go to the Cayman Islands on tonight’s episode and they bring all of their drama with them.

Who would actually want to go on this trip? Minus the Bravo paycheck, of course. They’re not the only two cast members who get into it.

Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Open House And Closed Doors

Last week’s episode ended with Ashley Darby finally about to come face to face with her father. The Real Housewives of Potomac are just so good. Although there is so much drama surrounding her and Michael Darby, I hope it all goes well. Speaking of Ashley, the issues with her are breaking up the friendship between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels. Of course, Gizelle Bryant is right there to ride the mess train when it comes to Monique.

Meanwhile, Karen Huger is a non factor in the group right now. Hopefully she climbs back into the drama web because I’m missing the Grande Dame. Another lingering question is when Robyn Dixon will reveal who Michael allegedly made the oral sex comment about. TELL US ALREADY. In addition to all of that, Katie Rost is making bold claims about Michael, and her eventual confrontation with Ashley will be epic.

THAT MICHAEL DARBY ENDING LAST WEEK THOUGH. I’m still shook from that unseen production footage. The Real Housewives of Potomac are DELIVERING this season in every way possible. So good. The footage they showed was so damaging to his and Ashley Darby’s credibility. I don’t think anyone believes his version of events at this point.

Can we also talk about Michael Darby’s somewhat obsession with Juan Dixon? Robyn Dixon isn’t saying it, but we all know “THE COMMENT” was about Juan. Her silence is speaking volumes. Monique Samuels is still Ashley’s only ally right now, which is straining her friendship with Candiace Dillard. Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant are being messy with this situation, but they have every right to be. Karma anyone?

RHOP Ashley Darby Michael Darby Real Housewives Of Potomac

Even though Katie Rost is just a part-time cast member on this season of Real Housewives of Potomac, she’s coming through with some tea during tonight’s episode. Katie and her boyfriend Jacob, who is not the guy Katie just got engaged to, spread some rumors about Michael Darby because are you even a cast member on this show if you aren’t talking about Michael Darby?

Michael may as well be a full-time cast member. Well, minus that whole suspension from filming think for allegedly getting handsy with an RHOP cameraman. The ladies have been shading Ashley Darby and her marriage for years all season, but she’s doing everything she can to deflect from scandal.

Katie Rost RHOP Real Housewives of Potomac

Katie Rost returned to Real Housewives of Potomac this season.  The cast was happy to welcome her back, though there were comments about how she looked and demeanor changed since Season 1.  And while her previous storyline was chasing a ring, this time, Katie has kept her personal life offscreen.

Katie has tried to insert herself into the drama instead.  She seems to be falling short a bit on that.  If Katie really wants in on some of the confrontations this season, she would have either gone against Gizelle Bryant, or become her sidekick.  Of course, the real storyline involved Michael Darby and the allegations made against him, as well as Ashley Darby for standing by his side.  And while the entire cast had opinions about Michael, Katie’s speculations about the incident may have cost her a spot on the reunion couch.

RHOP Ashley Darby Michael Darby Real Housewives Of Potomac

Real Housewives of Potomac has been dealing with a huge scandal that started behind the scenes and then surged to engulf the entire cast.  In September 2018, Ashley Darby’s husband, Michael Darby, was charged with a misdemeanor for improper sexual contact and a felony assault charge. A cameraman, Orville Palmer, alleged that Michael grabbed his butt and even gave him a “flirtatious look.” The supposed assault happened during Monique Samuels’ Rainbow shower. The maximum sentence for the charges was 11 years in prison.

Michael was suspended from filming RHOP while the charges were investigated. A Montgomery County court dismissed the charges due to insufficient evidence on October 4. He resumed filming the reality show in early October.

Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Good Will Haunting

The Hoedown Showdown is over, but there is plenty of drama ahead for The Real Housewives of Potomac. Michael Darby’s alleged sexual assault has ALL of the ladies talking right now. Ashley Darby is doing damage control, but Candiace Dilliard is calling BS on all of it. These two women are out for blood against each other this season. Their issue fired up so fast for no real reason.

Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger are civil right now but that could explode at any moment. Monique Samuels is STILL pregnant! Have that baby already! Meanwhile, Michael hasn’t been permitted to film with the cast. However, he’s scheduled to return tonight. There’s no telling what sort of drama Ashley’s controversial husband will get into next.
