Real Housewives of Potomac Season 1

Real Housewives of Potomac

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.”

Real Housewives of Potomac

Yesterday, we were surprised (and hugely excited) to learn that both the Real Housewives of Potomac and the Real Housewives of Dallas will be added to Bravo’s lineup in 2016. The first, coming to us from Potomac, Maryland, kicks off Sunday, January 17th.

Bravo released, “Just up the river from our nation’s capital lies a hidden gem – Potomac, Maryland. Its rolling hills, gated mansions, sophisticated prep schools, and exclusive country clubs all serve to keep the area invitation only. Sprinkled throughout this community are a handful of old-line, wealthy African-American families who have historically broken racial barriers to provide a life of privilege for their children.”

The Real Housewives of Potomac follows the lives of Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Gizelle Bryant, Katie Rost, Ashley Darby, and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. “In a town where entry is granted only through class, pedigree, and lineage, how far will these ladies go to secure their spot at the top of this prestigious circle?” teased Bravo. Look below to see the cast photos/bios and watch the sneak peek trailer.
