Real Housewives Of Potomac Premiere Delayed Because Of Coronavirus

One of the few good things to help get through this quarantine has been the Bravo programming. The network has blessed us with some throwback marathons. We’ve had new episodes of Real Housewives of New York, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Shahs of Sunset, Vanderpump Rules, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, and more. Even Watch What Happens Live has started filming episodes via webcam to adjust to life during the coronavirus pandemic.

Every day, I look forward to that night’s new Bravo show, because, let’s face it, I have nowhere to go. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 premiere is right around the corner. Oh, wait. It was right around the corner. Unfortunately, plans have changed.

Real Housewives Of Potomac Introduce A New Cast Member For Season 5
Real Housewives of Potomac had a pretty solid cast the past four seasons.  Original housewives Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, and Ashley Darby provided just the right mix of drama and friendship.  Gizelle could always be counted on for directing snarky comments towards frenemy Karen while Robyn hung on her coattails.  Monique Samuels joined the cast in Season 2.  She brought a fun vibe to the group, as well as a more laid-back attitude overall.
Things got heavy last season when Ashley’s husband Michael Darby was accused of sexual assault.  The rumors were peaking during filming and caused tensions within the group as Ashley was pressed for answers.  The housewife that seemed most affected was Candiace Dillard.  Candiace went after Ashley with some seemingly misplaced anger, probably something she meant to direct to mama Dorothy.  At this point, the mother-daughter bickering is getting a bit tired.  As are a few other storylines.   Did anyone really care about Robyn rekindling her love life with ex-husband Juan Dixon last season?  How about the underwhelming reveal of Karen’s fragrance line?  Maybe it’s time to bring some new energy to the show.

During these tough times, there is one bit of good news. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 trailer dropped and it looks amazing! Everyone from last season is back and they are joined by Wendy Osefo, which isn’t surprising since pictures from the cast photoshoot leaked a few months ago and Wendy was in them.

It looks like everyone is bringing it this year. Karen Huger is right when she quips, “Five years, boo boo, and we going strong.”

Robyn Dixon Juan Dixon Engagement

We all saw that video circulating on Instagram this past weekend, but now Robyn Dixon has officially confirmed that she and Juan Dixon are engaged, again. Real Housewives of Potomac viewers recall that they were pulling a Dolores and Frank Catania during Season 1: living together as exes. However, the Catanias were not sleeping in the same bed.

Slowly, their relationship shifted from just being co-parents to something more romantic. Before RHOP got started, Juan and Robyn divorced following infidelity on his part. However, the RHOP viewers didn’t see any of that. Instead, we’ve been rooting for Juan and Robyn to slowly inch their way back to husband and wife. I care a lot more about this than Robyn’s house flipping storyline.

Report: Wendy Osefo Joins Real Housewives Of Potomac For Season 5

Real Housewives of Potomac just ended, but production on this show moves pretty quickly. Not only have they started filming Season 5, but they even got together for the promotional photos. Why can’t all of the Real Housewives shows move at this speed? Then again, we don’t actually know when Season 5 will start airing. Let’s hope it’s soon because Season 4 was nothing short of phenomenal.

There were rumors circulating on social media that Ashley Darby got fired, which makes no sense to me since she was everyone’s storyline last season. Then again, do we really need two seasons dissecting an alleged butt grab? She will be back though. And we will be treated to more Gizelle Bryant vs. Karen Huger messiness. We will see if Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels make up after their reunion sadness or if they continue their fighting. And, I assume we will be treated to a snack and bathroom break more of Robyn Dixon’s house flipping. And, it looks like there’s a new lady joining the madness.
