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!”
Ashley Darby sure changed tactics this season on The Real Housewives Of Potomac, inserting herself as resident
production puppet sh*t stirrer extraordinaire! Now, Ashley says she’s in a “transitional phase” in her life since filming wrapped, but still has some choice words for her cast mates – especially the Grand Dame of Somewhere, Karen Huger.
In her blog, Ashley explains why she ended up attending Karen’s “exotic” anniversary party after almost not being invited (and all but begging to be): “I would have had a serious case of fomo (fear of missing out) if everyone else got to see Karen’s new digs and I didn’t. Even still there were dangling question marks just waiting for answers.”
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.”

Gizelle Bryant has been calling Ashley Darby out on her meddling in other people’s relationships lately. But now that The Real Housewives Of Potomac star has seen Ashley’s marriage isn’t all roses and sunshine, she understands a bit more about her costar’s messy behavior – though Gizelle admits being shocked at the nasty confrontation between Ashley and Michael at their restaurant, OZ.
Gizelle was also taken aback by the outdated “romance” advice she received from Karen Huger’s husband, Ray, while out with them on her double date! Gizelle snarks, “God knows I love the Black Bill Gates, however, a man who has been married for 20 years is not someone that I would take dating advice from in 2017. When Ray was in the ‘dating’ game I believe he was wearing bell bottoms and an afro picking his dates up in a horse and buggy. I think it’s admirable that he doesn’t want me to be alone. However, not all women are damsels in distress looking for a man to save them so that they can be barefoot and pregnant while in the kitchen making biscuits and gravy.”

Real Housewives of Potomac has taken a turn for the better this season, in my humble opinion. Some of the cast are showing us more vulnerability and depth, which makes for a deeper viewer investment in their storylines. Then of course we have Gizelle Bryant – who hasn’t changed a bit! Being the resident diva/sh*t stirrer has become her calling card, so she’s taking that schtick all the way to the bank.
Gizelle reflects on the confrontation she and Robyn Dixon took straight to Ashley Darby’s workplace. Though she regrets the location, Gizelle maintains Ashley had every word coming. She offers some backstory: “First, it was Karen Huger that thought Ashley was a rude, inconsiderate humping banshee. Then she said highly inappropriate things to Charrisse Jackson Jordan causing her to feel like Ashley was immature and ignorant. Then the Robyn Dixon/Juan accusations just brought Ashley to a new level of hot fish frying messiness.”
