Did Monique Samuels not watch this season of Real Housewives of Potomac? Or maybe she just watched it with rose colored glasses on or some blinders? How does she still not get how it was offensive for her fan page- ran by own brother- to post memes bashing Robyn Dixon? It’s not as if she’s not in touch with her own brother. It’s not a random fan running the account. Why couldn’t she just ask him to delete the posts?
Even Ashley Darby’s frienemies couldn’t help tearing up when she revealed that she went through a miscarriage during the second episode of the Real Housewives of Potomac Season 3 reunion. No one saw that coming and every single person on that stage (and plenty of people watching at home) felt for Ashley and her husband Michael Darby.
Watching the other episodes of Season 3, it seemed like Ashley and Michael were growing apart, but they really did seem like a united couple when they discussed the miscarriage during the reunion episode.
The winner of tonight’s reunion of The Real Housewives of Potomac was a guy named Chris. You can choose which one, Big C or Little C, but both came out of this gathering unscathed which is not an easy thing to do. However, those with the last name of Huger or Darby did not get off so easy. We start back where we ended last week with Karen Huger falling apart backstage and Gizelle Bryant doing her best to comfort her. We saw this already, so let’s jump in when Gizelle gets back to the couch.
Gizelle tells the group that Karen feels alone because of her parents dying so recently and so close together. Gizelle feels terrible and gets teary just thinking about what Karen must be going through. Once composed, Karen returns and tells the group she doesn’t want any sympathy. Robyn Dixon speaks for everyone when she says that Karen deserves it, and Ashley Darby says to Karen that she’s sorry for her loss. Karen accepts their condolences with grace and it’s time to move on to something a little more fun.
We are one episode into the Real Housewives of Potomac Season 3 reunion and Karen Huger already had a tearful walk out. She just lost her father and she’s still dodging questions from Gizelle Bryant and the other Housewives about whether or not she actually lives in her Great Falls mansion.
Aside from Karen’s drama stealing the show (as per usual), Gizelle and Monique Samuels continued to go at it. It doesn’t seem like these two will ever be friends, but there just might be some hope for Gizelle and Karen. Gizelle is the only cast member who ran after Karen when she stepped away from filming.
Last night the reunion of The Real Housewives of Potomac kicked off with a huge downer that Karen Huger’s dad had passed away from Alzheimer’s Disease just two weeks prior to taping, and the funeral had been a mere five days earlier. On top of that, her mom had died just seven months ago, so it’s been a terrible time for Karen. When your husband owing millions to the IRS is 3rd on your list of problems, then you know emotions are running wild. She hung in there for a while, but ultimately it got the best of her.
Before we dive into the minutia of grievances these women have, and since all season I have compared them to high schoolers (and sometimes junior high), I’d like to start with my reunion superlatives.
The Real Housewives of Potomac season is almost over, but luckily we still have the reunion episodes to look forward to. Are you ready for part one of The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion tonight? They’re sure to be rehashing all of the best drama from the season, as well as some storylines that we wish would just go away already.
According to Bravo’s synopsis, “The ladies revisit this season’s emotional highs and lows, all while trying to mend their fractured friendships. Monique [Samuels] and Robyn [Dixon] finally get to the core of their rivalry, while Candiace [Dillard] reveals some intimate details about her relationship. Karen [Huger] sheds some light on her mysterious life, but the pain she is dealing with is too much to handle, and Gizelle [Bryant] proves to her that old friends are the best friends.
Does Karen Huger actually live in that Great Falls mansion? There has been so much speculation for all of Season 3 of Real Housewives of Potomac about Karen’s finances and now there are rumors that she’s actually living in a townhouse instead of “her” house in Great Falls.
Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, Robyn Dixon, decided to prank Karen by dressing up in disguises (complete with wigs) to “deliver a pizza” to the house. They rang the doorbell and waited for Karen to come out, but she wasn’t home. Later, they asked Karen if she saw the pizza they left in front of her door and she had no idea what they were talking about. So where did that pizza go? Did production steal it to cause drama? Does Karen live somewhere else? There are so many unanswered questions when it comes to Karen.
Love her or hate her, the Real Housewives of Potomac viewers and cast members have to give Karen Huger some credit for the success of Season 3. The Housewives were either talking about Karen or looking for an excuse to bring her up. Almost every storyline came back to Karen.
Karen’s suspicious finances served as the backbone of this season. It all came to head when Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, and Robyn Dixon rung the doorbell at Karen’s home to see if she really lived in that mansion. Karen did not answer the door- obviously. Not only that, but she did not even find the pizza they left on her front porch. So does that mean she doesn’t live there? Or did production take that pizza to stir up drama? There are so many possibilities.
