Candiace Dillard Bassett Real Housewives Of Potomac

The Real Housewives of Potomac had its first big cast shakeup with the exit of Monique Samuels after four seasons on the show.  Karen Huger, Robyn Dixon, Gizelle Bryant, and Ashley Darby have been the core four since the premiere season.  Candiace Dillard joined in Season 3 and, after taking some newbie heat from Karen, fit into the group quite well.  She brought the drama, but also solidified friendships overall.

The support she got from Robyn and Gizelle after her physical altercation with Monique helped her finish out the season.  But Candiace was still visibly upset at the reunion, and questioned Monique’s accountability and remorse for the incident.  The fallout from that event really dampened the mood at the reunion.  While Karen called for healing within the group, Monique chose to take the easy route and quit the show.

Andy Cohen Jen Shah Real Housewives of Salt Lake City Reunion

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City fandom has been in a frenzy since news broke last week that Jen Shah is facing federal fraud and money laundering charges. Apparently she and her assistant Stuart Smith were involved in a decade-long telemarketing scheme that preyed on elderly people. Jen is proclaiming she’s innocent — both by pleading not guilty and making tone-deaf Instagram stories about #FreeJen. And accusing her fellow castmembers of racism in a feeble attempt to get the spotlight off her for 5 seconds. 

While Bravo fans have been feverishly tuning into every turn, even overloading Jen’s virtual hearing last week, the network has remained quiet. There are rumors that she was tipped off about the arrest while filming with the cast (and apparently tried to run away). And word on the street (not from Gizelle Bryant) is that Bravo cameras were at the courthouse filming her leaving in a fur coat and leopard boots.

Jax Taylor Vanderpump Rules

It seems like at least one person on every reality TV show ends up facing tax issues at one point.  On Real Housewives of Potomac, we’ve (sort of) seen Karen Huger and Ray Huger owe “millions” in back taxes and Robyn Dixon make a $90,000 mistake on her reports to the IRS. Nene Leakes, Porsha Williams and others from the Real Housewives of Atlanta have had tax issues of their own. And in Beverly Hills, Dorit Kemsley and Lisa Vanderpump, despite their separate successes, have both been caught up with tax issues of their own.

It’s no doubt that the financial issues surrounding reality stars are more high profile no matter the situation. Hey, filing taxes isn’t easy for an everyday person, let alone someone on Bravo with several businesses, assets and expenditures to keep track of. And while there are honest mistakes, it is fascinating to read that those we think of the rich and famous might be facing financial woes off-screen, even if their on-camera appearances show otherwise.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Margaret Josephs, Jackie Goldschneider, Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania, Jennifer Aydin
Real Housewives stars are no stranger to cheating rumors. Or just actual adultery, unfortunately. We all saw that video of Brandi Redmond’s husband someone who looks just like Brandi Redmond’s husband Bryan Redmond making out with a woman in the club.
We’ve heard plenty of cheating allegations about Joe Giudice and Teresa Giudice. Ashley Darby’s husband Michael Darby has had more than his fair share of indiscretions. Gizelle Bryant is back with her cheating ex-husband Pastor Jamal Bryant. Ramona Singer and Mario Singer divorced following his affair. Frank Catania cheating on Dolores Catania while she was pregnant. I can go on and on. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of cheating in the Real Housewives universe.

Mary Cosby Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City Reunion

Mary Cosby truly brought something to the first season of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. I just haven’t decided if that something is good, bad, or just downright weird. From her perspective, it was a sign from God. 

Mary started the show with a bang simply because of her off-the-wall storyline. She married her step-grandfather. She inherited the role of first lady of a church (that might be a cult) a la Gizelle Bryant style — but Gizelle isn’t exactly a Mary fan. Jen Shah became her sworn enemy when Mary told her she smelled like hospital. She said some pretty problematic things at the reunion, but also fell asleep in a hilarious way. Mary is truly a unique woman, even if she spends 98% of her time in her closet.

Real Housewives Of Potomac

We all know that Monique Samuels will not be on Real Housewives of Potomac when the show returns for Season 6. It’s been rumored that she’s been replaced by Mia Thornton, but it’s unclear if Mia is a full-time Housewife or a part-time cast member.

We also don’t know if there are any other new additions to the cast, but there is some potentially explosive gossip circulating.

Ashley Darby Real Housewives Of Potomac

Yesterday, Ashley Darby posted, “It’s really hitting me – these are the last moments of [son] Dean being my only baby. While I’m beyond words excited for our growing family, I have to give space and acknowledgement for the journey Dean and I have been on thus far. He’s a magical little human and I count my lucky stars every single day that I get to be his mother.”

In another post, the pregnant reality star gushed, “To say I’m on Cloud 9 would be an understatement of epic proportions.” Early this morning, the Real Housewives of Potomac star posted “go time” to her Instagram Story.

Gizelle Bryant Real Housewives Of Potomac

Real Housewives of Potomac viewers still don’t know for sure what was real and what was fake in Gizelle Bryant’s revived relationship with her cheating ex-husband Jamal Bryant.

However, that hasn’t stopped her from criticizing the way Real Housewives from other shows pick and choose what they show from their own relationships. Pot, meet kettle.
