RHOP Reunion

Gizelle Bryant Real Housewives Of Potomac

Before Real Housewives of Salt Lake City even started airing, we all knew that Mary Cosby married her step-grandfather, Robert Cosby Sr. We were all under the impression (because she told us) that her grandmother asked her to do so.

Mary became a First Lady of their church in addition to inheriting some restaurants, more homes than she can count, Chanel bags (that may or may not make her happy), and a bunch of throne-like chairs. Well, I don’t know if she inherited the chairs or if she just bought them with that church/restaurant money, but I’m just looking for a plausible explanation for her decor. The more Mary that I see, the more fascinated I am by her. In contrast, Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant doesn’t feel that way. She wants less Mary on Season 2.

Monique Samuels and Karen Huger came for Gizelle Bryant and her fake relationship with Jamal Bryant during the Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 reunion episodes. Real Housewives of Potomac viewers came for host Andy Cohen for the way that he felt he treated some of the cast members, specifically Monique.

Monique “quit” announced her departure from the show right after the last reunion episode ended. Then, Andy addressed the backlash against him. So did Monique. And, in addition to all of that, Andy addressed the claims that a Gizelle  meltdown was edited out of the reunion. To be honest, this wouldn’t be surprising. We all know Andy, an executive producer on the show, plays favorites. Plus, Gizelle is also on the snooze-inducing show Bravo’s Chat Room. It would make sense for the network to protect someone who’s considered “talent” (lol) on two different shows.

Monique Samuels Andy Cohen Real Housewives Of Potomac

Monique Samuels had one hell of a season on Real Housewives of Potomac. There were ups, downs, and that one time Monique took Candiace Dillard’s hair for a quick spin around a restaurant. Monique might be rough around the edges, but at least she responds to co-workers when they ask for something. It seemed like our country’s political divide in 2020 had nothing on the debate fans had after the RHOP barn brawl.

One of the biggest concerns was the violence between Mo and Candy and exactly who was responsible. Both were expected to return to the show, but Monique opted out of coming back after the reunion didn’t go in her favor. To be fair, the reunion didn’t go in anyone’s favor, especially Andy Cohen’s. After suggesting Bravo set her up during the season 5 reunion tapings, Monique took her binder, her bird, and peaced out. Now Mo says she will never return to the scene of the crime show because she was “treated unfairly”.

The Season 5 reunion of Real Housewives of Potomac really delivered. Of course, much of the drama centered on the physical altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard.

Monique brought a binder of receipts to the RHOP reunion and proceeded to school Gizelle Bryant about her relationship with  ex-husband (and current boyfriend), Pastor Jamal Bryant. Monique had text messages from another woman and Jamal, and even read out Jamal’s phone number. Yikes!

Real Housewives of Potomac is the gift that keeps on giving. As if this season wasn’t dramatic enough, the reunions and post season have continued to keep RHOP fans on the edge of our seats. I’m still not over the 90 minute reunion finale. While we beat the dead horse of Monique Samuels’ fight with Candiace Dillard Bassett, some other stones were thrown in the midst of that.

One such stone was embedded in Monique’s Binder of Sins and took a direct shot at castmate Gizelle Bryant’s man. According to Gizelle, she and ex-husband Jamal Bryant are very much together. Monique’s binder showed “proof” of him to continue being a “cheater cheater pumpkin eater”. Gizelle wasn’t happy, especially when Monique released his phone number that was attached to some salacious texts to other women. But do you think Monique gave a sh** after being dragged for hours by the whole cast? She did not.

Well folks, THIS IS IT. We have reached the end of the road for this season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. It felt like this day would never come. One of the best seasons of Housewives in recent memory. The fight between Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett was one of the most talked about moments EVER. Top tier television.

When we last left the women, Candiace was rushing off set in tears after discussing the fight. Monique however remained emotionless and matter of fact about the altercation. The two contrasting reactions to reliving the events was fascinating to watch. This time, the husbands are joining the women on stage, so hopefully things don’t get too out of control. Although, how bad can it get with creepy Michael Darby out of the picture this time?

Monique Samuels Real Housewives Of Potomac

Monique Samuels (and her husband Chris Samuels) seemed to be over the Real Housewives of Potomac during the final installment of the reunion. In return, Andy Cohen seemed to be over them (and annoyed by their anger over the paternity rumors).

He also seemed pretty peeved when she said that her family didn’t need those Bravo checks during the reunion and now she’s done with that. That’s right, she will not be on Real Housewives of Potomac Season 6.

This Real Housewives of Potomac reunion is getting nasty really quickly. Monique Samuels’ binder is going to go down in Housewives infamy. Has anyone else ever brought such thorough receipts to shut someone down the way she did Gizelle Bryant. The way she openly read off Jamal Bryant’s phone number was iconic because everyone knows that relationship is a sham. She made the alleged cheating rumors seem a lot more plausible.

We didn’t get much interaction between Monique and Candiace Dillard Bassett  on last week’s Real Housewives of Potomac reunion episode. However, all of that is going to change. We’re finally going to dive into THE fight that changed everything on Real Housewives of Potomac. Both of these women have had a lot to say in the last year. Now though, all of that talk is coming to a head because we’re going to hopefully get some real answers.
