Are you ready for the Real Housewives of Potomac this Sunday? We here at RT are! When Bravo announced their intentions to release two new cities in the Real Housewives franchise, perhaps no one’s first thought was, “I wonder if Potomac, MD, will be on the list?” But the cast of Potomac, along with Dallas, indeed made the cut! And, according to show execs, the Potomac ladies bring the drama – but in a different package than we’ve seen before.
Noting they looked at Houston, Baltimore, and Philly before finally settling on Potomac, True Entertainment co-founder Steven Weinstock says, “So Bravo came to me and said, ‘Is there another African American cast out there that isn’t derivative, that doesn’t have the same feel?’ And we were able to find this incredible group of women in Potomac, Maryland, of all places. I would liken it to the feeling of ‘Falcon Crest.’ They’re very upwardly mobile, they’re the daughters of very old-monied families. The social grace, etiquette, class, these sorts of things are important in the context of their everyday interactions. It has a very different feel than ‘Atlanta,’ and at the same time it’s dripping with great drama and really exciting and interesting characters.”
