Season 6 of Real Housewives of Potomac is set to debut on July 11, 2021. According to the trailer, it looks pretty entertaining. Last season of RHOP focused on the physical altercation between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels. On October 16, 2019, Candiace taunted Monique about dragging her. While cameras were rolling, Monique grabbed Candiace by her hair and yanked her down on a table.
Candiace filed a case against Monique for second-degree assault. Then, Monique filed a case against Candiace for the same thing, claiming that Candiace struck her in the face with a glass. Eventually, both the charges were dismissed by the court.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans are gearing up to watch Erika Jayne’s divorce from Tom Girardi and her ongoing legal battle unfold on the small screen. After almost a year of news headlines and shocking allegations, Erika just revealed to her friends during last week’s episode that she filed for divorce from Tom just days after gushing about him in Lake Tahoe. It came at a suspicious time, when a mounting lawsuit against Tom, accusing him of embezzling settlement funds owed to clients. And it looked like Erika was doing whatever she could to protect her XXPen$ive assets to avoid getting dragged down with her 81-year-old husband. But maybe a cheating scandal really did coincidentally drop at the same time as the lawsuit. Would I bet on that? Definitely not. In this instance, I’m with Sutton Stracke.
Erika has proclaimed she’s innocent and ignorant of all Tom’s shady business, which includes stealing money in millions from orphans and families of victims who died in horrific accidents. But the evidence shows otherwise. And a new ABC documentary on Hulu dubbed The Housewife and the Hustler doesn’t help Erika’s case that she didn’t fund her fabulous lifestyle off the back of literal victims. No doubt the feds are recording that documentary to watch too.
Monique Samuel’s withdrawal from the Real Housewives of Potomac was marred by ill feelings and unresolved issues between Monique and the rest of the cast. Real Housewives come and go, but this departure was the dramatic conclusion of Monique pinning Candiace Dillard face down into a table by her hair. Some viewers expected Monique to be fired mid-season. Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, and Wendy Osefo made it clear that they wanted nothing to do with her, but Monique remained for the rest of the season even though her screen time was cut dramatically.
Maybe she wanted to participate in the reunion to share her side of the story. But after feeling slighted by her treatment there, Monique decided to quit. Perhaps, again, in an attempt to be able to speak freely. Unfortunately, Bravo is still allegedly controlling the narrative According to Monique, she was blacklisted by the network and that influence prevented her from doing any press since leaving RHOP.
Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger’s forever feud has run deep since the first season of the Real Housewives of Potomac. Karen thinks Gizzy is “tacky as hell” and can’t resist a moment to dog her FORMER relationship with Pastor Jamal Bryant who lives in the phone. Gizelle has tried to expose the Grand Dame for renting her house, being silent about her money problems with Ray Huger and everything else. Both ladies could write the textbook for how to master the art of Real Housewives-level one-liners and disses.
Gizelle has always had her green-eyed bandit Robyn Dixon by her side, while La Dame tends to fight her battles alone. But it looks like Season 6 will bring Karen a new bestie — Mia Thornton. Karen’s gushed about her new friend joining the show, and the trailer shows fans that she gets into a food fight with Candiace Dillard Bassett, which is already iconic. CandeeGal thought she was in the clear now that Monique Samuels is gone, but obviously, she’s going to find some trouble with the new girl running the streets of Potomac.
Ever since the Real Housewives of Atlanta wrapped up Season 13, Porsha Williams has caused quite a stir on the internet. Her engagement to Simon Guobadia after one month of dating has received many mixed reactions from fans and Bravolebrities alike. Simon is the ex-husband of Porsha’s one-time friend Falynn Guobadia, who she brought on the show as part of her crew of friend-ofs. Simon gave Porsha a MASSIVE diamond ring and while some people are happy she’s found love again, others have plenty of questions. Like, how long has this relationship been going on, for real? Are Simon and Falynn even officially divorced? Has somebody in this love triangle been unfaithful? What has been going on in the group text between Marlo Hampton and NeNe Leakes?
Porsha’s in her own world planning three weddings and prepping for her own Bravo spinoff. And cutting people out of her life who are on the next train to haterville, so Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey. Word on the street is we can blame sidekick Shamea Morton for this whole mess in the first place. Meanwhile, Porsha’s been riding the media wave because we know she’ll never back down from taking center stage, even if she’s receiving hate.
The vibe on Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac bordered on hostile after the fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard occurred. The cast dynamic could never be the same because of it. Candiace pursued legal charges after Monique pulled her hair and pinned her face to the table. Assault charges were dropped, but the effects lingered within the group. There was even division in the group about whether Candiace should or shouldn’t have pressed charges. Ashley Darby wrote a letter supporting Monique’s case.
But that’s just what happened on camera. Monique and Candiace interacted on social media, by proxy of friends and supporters, and this intensified the ill-feelings between the two. Monique started rewriting history by claiming Candiace hit her with the glass first. Her general tone was deflection and lack of remorse, and this is what offended with the rest of the RHOP cast the most.
The Real Housewives of Potomac are headed back to our screens this summer, and, as always, they’re going to bring it. At least, as far as I can tell from the first full-length trailer. Karen Huger will be doing what she does best — dogging Gizelle Bryant and giving hilarious one-liners, this time with her new BFF Mia Thornton by her side. Candiace Dillard-Bassett will finally get over the fight with Monique Samuels, but only because Mia’s throwing salad instead of punches in her face this time.
Gizzy always has a lot of opinions about her fellow RHOP ladies and women from other cities, considering her co-host role on Bravo’s Chat Room. She’s shady as hell and loves to bring attention to other people’s drama to avoid having to get real about her own. And because Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is her buddy from Chat Room, everyone in the streets of Potomac knows she has to feel some type of way about Porsha’s new ring from Falynn Guobadia’s SOON TO BE ex-husband Simon Guobadia.
Gizelle Bryant spent four seasons on the Real Housewives of Potomac with the narrative that her ex-husband Jamal Bryant was a serial cheater. She revealed her past as the first lady of Jamal’s church in a memoir which was shared with the other RHOP ladies during a tea ceremony. Gizelle took her role as the face of the church seriously, and ignored Jamal’s behaviors for some time. But when she was ready to leave, she really really left and raised their three daughters on her own.
Gizelle dated retired NBA star Sherman Douglas,before dumping him after he ghosted her for multiple RHOP events. Sherman wasn’t excited about the comments Monique Samuels made about him. Since then, Gizelle was quiet about her love life, until it took an unexpected turn on Season 5. And once again, Monique had a negative opinion to voice.
