This season of Real Housewives of Potomac has centered around Ashley Darby, and her husband, Michael Darby. More specifically, it has been laser-focused on Michael’s alleged inability to keep his hands to himself. And away from other men’s butts. Speculating about Michael’s sexuality, and the Darby’s marriage, has been a full-time job for the other Potomac ladies.
At a RHOP party earlier in the season, Michael complimented another man on his physique. Later that night, when everyone was drunk, Robin Dixon and Candiace Dillard heard Michael tell a man that he would “suck his d*ck.” That was shocking.
The Real Housewives of Potomac is inching closer to the finale, and I never want it to end. A lot of the Real Housewives shows have fallen flat this year, but these women are having a breakout season. More specifically, Candiace Dillard has become a breakout star this season. You don’t have to like her, but you can’t deny the impact she’s had in her sophomore season.
Katie Rost’s mental health was called into question on last week’s episode. I can’t believe Ashley Darby went there. SUCH a low blow. Going into the latest Real Housewives of Potomac episode, I wondered if Robyn Dixon would actually confront Gizelle Bryant. There are a lot of issues bubbling beneath the surface begging to boil over.
Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger squashed their beef during the last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, but that’s not going to last. It never does. This time it didn’t even last for a whole episode. During tonight’s new RHOP episode, Gizelle wonders if Karen actually owns her fragrance La’Dame. Questioning Karen’s finances is what got Gizelle into hot water with her decades-long frienemy. Shouldn’t she know this isn’t gonna turn out well?
We all expect Gizelle to beef with Karen. However, Gizelle’s
sidekick BFF Robyn Dixon finally calls out Gizelle for her messiness tonight. Gizelle was way out of hand at Robyn’s open house. She came for Monique Samuels the second she walked in the door and was both disruptive and embarrassing. Robyn didn’t say anything right away because she expected Gizelle to recognize her mistakes and own up to them. Yeah, right. Has she not met Gizelle? Or has she finally seen the light when it comes to Gizelle’s pot-stirring antics?
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.
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.
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?
