Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Sex, Lies, And Butter Knives

The last episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac was highly emotional. Ashley Darby gave a tearful speech about her miscarriage, and Karen Huger broke down in a cave. Karen and Ashley are finally on the same page, but who knows how long that will last. Also, Monique Samuels FINALLY got the apology she wanted from her mother-in-law. It’s about time!

The Michael Darby secret is likely coming out tonight, and I’m screaming! Candiace Dillard and Robyn Dixon have kept this mostly under wraps which is shocking. Both typically act like the bone collector so keeping this big of a secret is monumental for them. SHOOK. This dinner is going to go down in Housewives infamy. Let the legendary episode commence!

Gizelle Bryant RHOP

Gizelle Bryant has a lot to say about Candiace Dillard‘s pot-stirring antics and the connotations of slavery thrown around on the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Potomac.

While Gizelle wasn’t exactly fond of “cheerleader” Candiace last season, the OG and the newest ‘Wife have found common ground this year and are slowly building a friendship. During the last episode, the two met for a lunch. Candiace spilled the tea on Monique Samuels referring to Katie Rost as “Amistad” on the New Orleans trip. She also doubled down on her very strong opinions about Ashley Darby‘s questionable attempts at getting pregnant.

Real Housewives Of Potomac Recap: Salty Behavior

The Real Housewives of Potomac’s trip to New Orleans was out of this world. The drama between the group was more intense than ever. Candiace Dillard got slammed for speaking about Ashley Darby’s fertility journey. Plus, Karen Huger and Gizelle Bryant went at it for the millionth time. However, we are finally heading back to Potomac where things are looking to heat up even more.

Candiace and Robyn Dixon still haven’t exposed the shocking secret about Michael Darby. Once this comes out, so much chaos will erupt. Also, Katie Rost is still in the mix so anything can happen with her around. Besides the drama, Monique Samuels’ rainbow party is rapidly approaching. Hopefully, the women don’t ruin the even with petty fights and gossip. 

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 Karen Huger Real Housewives Of Potomac

Karen Huger has a way of maintaining a safe distance from the melee while remaining the center of attention.  The Real Housewives of Potomac really can’t get enough of the Grande Dame.  Or perhaps it’s Gizelle Bryant’s fixation that the other ladies piggyback on.

Karen was right to keep her guard up.  Though Gizelle backed down from a larger confrontation at lunch, she brought her passive aggressive self into Karen’s Instagram Live.  Gizelle certainly loves an audience.

Candiace Dillard RHOP

So far on this season of Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace Dillard got married and feuded with her mother. Ashley Darby has been trying to conceive following a devastating miscarriage. Ashley tells her fellow Housewives that she has stopped drinking in order to conceive. All the while slamming down tons of alcohol. I find drunk Ashley entertaining, but this is a bit confusing. Fans of the show know that Ashley is happily pregnant right now, but this apparently happened after filming wrapped.

In October of 2018, Ashley’s husband, Michael Darby, was suspended during filming because he allegedly groped a cameraman. He was accused of sexual assault. He was later cleared of all charges.
