Part one of The Real Housewives Of Potomac reunion focused largely on Karen Huger – and the super shady, Scooby Doo mystery bus that moved all of her belongings from one house to another
rental while she vacationed in Bermuda. Although Karen attempted to defend her reasons for moving quickly – and to a place outside of Potomac – Gizelle Bryant still isn’t buying it. And neither is just about anyone else, especially now that we know more about Karen’s husband, Ray, owing millions in back taxes.
Gizelle responds to Karen’s claims that she moved to be closer to her parents, even hoping that her parents might come live with her one day. “I DO NOT understand Karen’s house moving explanation at all what-so-EVER! It was very confusing. Are her parents packing their bags and getting ready to move into this Great Falls house? Aren’t her parents very old and need to be cared for? Would they even care where they live? Again, CONFUSING!”
Karen Huger has been revamping her image on season two of The Real Housewives Of Potomac as a kinder, less etiquette-obsessed version of the blow hard we all snarked on last year. And it’s been a welcome change! But the trip to Bermuda brought the old Karen out of the shadows to box with her cast mates – most notably, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan – over who’s really the Grand Dame of this group. According to Karen, she will never lose her title, no matter what Ashley Darby or the other ladies insinuate.
In her blog, Karen calls out Charrisse’s lies, explains how her move went (but still withholds details), and comments on Ashley’s accusations about her financial status. First, Karen says Charrisse lied about the gift baskets Karen sent to everyone’s rooms in order to make a big stink about it on camera. “Can someone please roll back the tape? Charrisse knew about the gift baskets and she knew she would be receiving one from me as well. Charrisse’s speech to the girls in the hallway was yet another lie she told just to manipulate and mislead the girls.”
The battle for hostessing crown rages on between Charrisse Jackson-Jordan and Karen Huger, with The Real Housewives Of Potomac ladies’ war coming to a head this week in Bermuda. After Karen made it known that she would be the Grand Dame not only of Potomac – but of the tropics as well – Charrisse and Robyn Dixon took issue. Charrisse explains just what their issues are and why she doesn’t see Robyn as her “soldier.”
“Karen sending a gift basket from her is typical Karen,” snarks Charrisse of the welcome gifts Karen left in all of the ladies’ rooms. “Her tricks never surprise me. Let Karen do whatever she needs to do to make herself feel a sense of relevance. Poor thing, I feel sorry that she needs to go through such measures so that she can feel above me.”
After weeks of sniping and snapping at each other, it only took a brief sailing excursion to bring Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels closer. Thanks to Karen Huger’s meddling in Bermuda, The Real Housewives Of Potomac stars found themselves aboard an American Cup boat, scrambling to survive. Well, not really. But they were sufficiently freaked out enough to get along for a hot second!
First, Gizelle comments on Karen’s welcome gift baskets, a nod to her “superior” status as official host on the cast trip. She snarks, “I never kick a gift horse in the mouth, so I was grateful to have fruit, cheese, and crackers in my room and really didn’t care who it came from. However, to this day I don’t understand why Karen is holding on to the title of Head Chief Hostess like her life depends on it. A trip for six people can be planned by my 12-year-old daughter in her sleep; it’s NOT difficult. Why does anyone need a title, tiara, or a crown for this? Did Karen not get enough hugs when she was a child?”
There is certainly no love lost between Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels. And if Gizelle has it her way, The Real Housewives Of Potomac cast mates will not be giggling together at a sleepover anytime soon.
In her blog, Gizelle maintains that she is in the right when it comes to the spat between Monique and her – and she’s still waiting for an apology, ya’ll! At their lunch meeting, arranged by Charrisse Jackson-Jordan to broker peace, Gizelle shares, “all I’m thinking was that an apology needed to be on the menu and served. It should come somewhere between the appetizer and the entree so that I can have an enjoyable dessert.”

If Gizelle Bryant wasn’t a cast member of Real Housewives Of Potomac, the ladies might see a little sunlight now and then. Because this chick is here to throw shade all day, every day. In Gizelle’s mind, however, she sees herself as a truth teller, not a sh*t stirrer. Case in point: She was just asking an innocent question of newbie Monique Samuels when she insinuated that Monique was homeless. At least, that is what Gizelle claims. And in case you did not hear – she is still the word on the street!
Before defending her shady ways, Gizelle ironically takes a moment in her blog this week to trash Katie Rost’s Casino Royale charity soiree. (Which – let’s be real – was among the top five sorriest excuses for a Housewives event to EVER grace our screens.) Gizelle has been out of touch with Katie for a while, but writes, “I wish her all the best of luck, especially when it comes to her planning another event. Based off of Casino Royale, she’s going to need a four-leaf clover and a horseshoe.”

The Real Housewives of Potomac season 2 premieres off tonight, hoping to woo Real Housewives fans back and to prove they’re better and more exciting than their luke-warm first season.
One of the show’s returning cast members, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, shared that she’s looking forward to the chance to show who she really is this time around. Charrisse admits that season one wasn’t her best and she’s feeling much more comfortable with the format now.
Robyn Dixon was the lone sane one on Real Housewives Of Potomac this season. She calls the experience “surreal” (cause how else does one describe Karen Huger or Katie Rost?) and discusses how the show has impacted her life. Luckily for viewers, we’ll get another dose of her zen-like approach to friendship and drama, because she is back for season two, which is currently filming.
“Watching myself on TV is very strange…,” admits Robyn. “I find myself saying, I should have said this, or I should have done that. Then you see what people are saying behind your back, and you are like oh, if I ‘d known she said this, then I would’ve checked her differently!”
