Real Housweives of Potomac Reunion Season Two

Bombs Dropped on Real Housewives of Potomac: S2 Reunion (Part II)

Last night concluded to Season Two of The Real Housewives of Potomac. Even though hardly anyone answered their questions, the reunion did not disappoint. A lot was still revealed 😛 Here is what you missed:

RAY KEEPS IT REAL.

Bravo TV
Karen might dance around the truth but Ray is a little more straight forward. So much that he kinda threw his own wife under the bus about this moving into another and bigger house. Karen should have discussed her BS with her husband first so they could be on the same page. I thought we would hear the truth about the tax troubles but we didn’t.

CHRIS PUTS HIS MOM IN CHECK…

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
and his wife first. That is how it should be. Momma Sammuels was wrong. I wish she would let go of her “baby” and apologize to Monique so that she can have a more open invitation in their home.

THE DIXONS ARE TIGHTER THAN WE THINK.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
It seems to me like Coach Jaun had his own coach on what to say before coming on set. The man talked but he technically did not answer a single question. Although these two SAY that they’re comfortable where they are, they look uncomfortable. If there is anything that we have learned about Robyn and Jaun, it’s that their relationship is not our business. I have to give them credit because they have done a damn good job of keeping it that way.

ASHLEY IS “NOT IN KANSAS ANYMORE”.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
I guess we saw this coming but actually hearing that Ashley and Micheal have been separated for three months was still shocking. Gizelle and Robyn were practically seething at the irony of it all. Ashley tells us she moved out to Alexandria and Micheal essentially blames the women for part of their troubles. He says it’s “never OK to go after someone business.” Ashley was literally biting her lip as Micheal spoke. I think she finally realized that her mouth has written a check her ass can’t cash. Ashley she shows interest in saving the marriage but I think we all get the feeling Micheal is ready to let her go. As Ashley matures, I don’t think Micheal can handle her speaking, thinking and acting independently. Business is Micheal’s priority here. Too much money was at stake and being on the show seems to have done OZ more harm than good. I can admit to that because my expectations were not fulfilled either.

KAREN FINALLY OWNS UP TO SOMETHING.

Suddenly Karen remembers she took out her implants. She thought we knew! LOL I mean… Andy only spent an entire segment talking about how different her breasts look. I am so over Karen’s shenanigans. I wouldn’t miss her on the show if she were to leave. I think she should just make appearances here and there. I thought Twitter would have my back on this one but it looks like we are very much torn. I guess going “Phaedra” with the lies didn’t hurt her that much.

CHARRISSE IS MOVING ON.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
After Eddie did of course… but Charrisse has finally come to terms that her marriage is over and filed for divorce. No ring was on her finger either. I think she will be fine.

“BLUE” IS NOT A GOOD LOOK ON KAREN.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
And I am not talking about the dress she is wearing either. Karen took a big L this season. The women were roasting her like no other for her behavior. Then Charrisse mentioned two words: “Blue Eyes” and things got REAL!

WHO IS “BLUE EYES”?

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
There was not a woman on the couch that didn’t know who Charrisse was talking about. You would think that bomb would shut up Karen but she kept yapping! Strangely, it seemed like Karen was validating these rumors with her comments. Saying: “Everyone is screwing someone in Potomac” and “You guys have met him.” or “That was an old rumor”. She did a horrible job defending herself. Gizelle let her know that the streets of Potomac are talking about this guy and it’s not a good look for Karen.

I don’t know about you but I was genuinely entertained this season. I am glad I stayed on board. If RHOP is picked up for Season three you will definitely see my recaps again. 😉 Until next time…

Top 5 Moments of Real Housewives of Potomac: S2 Reunion (Part I)

Truth be told I am low-key glad season 2 of The Real Housewives of Potomac is over. Many complained that it was too short but I think 12 episodes were more than enough. Especially of hearing both Robyn and Karen in denial. Well, anyhow…part I of the reunion aired. So here are my top 5 moments in case you missed it.

5. Giselle’s new boo.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
His name is Sherman. They have been dating for a year. And has a lot of cash flow – I think retired athlete. Apparently it’s getting serious but he literally ran away from the topic of marriage. I knew that whole thing with Kevin was a fraud. How convenient things ended before this guy was revealed.

4. Robyn bout to set it off on Ashley.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
Didn’t Robyn pop off last season? My girl might have a little hood in her. Watch your back for Ashley and just keep your mouth shut about this woman. Although I am 100 percent sure Robyn will put the beat down on any one of these ladies, RHOP just isn’t the show for hair pulling. It doesn’t fit. So I’m gonna need our girl to simmer down a little bit or leave the show. Ashley was too extra with the pot-stirring but it’s TV. You know how this goes. Let’s not really fight someone over what everyone is already thinking anyway. And another thing…

3. Karen digs herself into a deeper hole.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
Karen wants you to know believe that she loves her life, being the Grand Dame, and has no new cosmetic surgeries. Plus her move to Great Falls was for her parents (even though they haven’t made any plans on living with her yet). Yea, OK… We have seen the news. Y’all owe LOTS of money to the IRS. The jig is up girl.

2. Charrisse snatches Karens wig.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
By calling Karen the Grand “of not a dame thing”. As you can see, no emotions were held back from her castmates on that line.

5. Monique claps back.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
Gizelle and Robyn quickly tookthose  smiles off their faces when Monique took shots at Gizelles church wealth and Robyn’s underhanded ways. Monique did not come to this reunion to play with y’all. In fact, Monique…

Then “Raps” up season two with a few bars.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Bravo TV
And it actually wasn’t bad. Homegirl came prepared.

To me, Monique has earned her keep for another season (from this reunion alone). What do you think? I agree with the twitter community. This was a pretty solid reunion so far and I am anxious to hear Juan speak. Because aren’t we tired of hearing the status of his relationship with Robyn from her alone?

Chat with y’all next week!

Real Housewives of Potomac: Season 2 Finale

This is it my friends. We have reached the season finale of the Real Housewives of Potomac. I thought it was a decent season. What about you? My feelings have changed slightly for Gizelle, I still like Ashley in all her boldness and Monique was a great replacement for Katie.  She was exactly what the show needed if you asked me. Last week we ended with Karen calling Ashley an idiot. I honestly thought Ashley would have responded more aggressively but she kept her composure and still demanded answers for Karen’s strange behavior. That woman would not budge and told Ashley she would not be invited to her home for her African-Indian anniversary party. Whoopteedoo. lol Just look at their faces. We are all over it Karen. Just keep it real.

The first gag of this episode was finding out that Karen’s new home is HUGE(R) lol get it? :-p. But WHY is the question… Why rent a 9 bedroom home for two people? 14,000 square feet of unfurnished space. Alrighty then…

Meanwhile Monique and Sam bought this 4.5 million dollar home IN Potomac that is only 6 bedrooms and 12,000 square feet. Any they have small children.

Of course Karen had to say something slick about it not being her taste. *ahem* hater *ahem* Then she reinvited Ashley to her “exotic” party.

Over at the Dixon’s, Robyn and Juan talk about the Bermuda trip and the dating assignment. Looks like Juan wasn’t feeling that too much. The good news is that neither was Robyn. No surprise there…

So then the two decided that they would make time for each other. They sealed the deal with a fist bump. Cute. Not exactly romantic but that is progress I guess. They better not come back next season with the same story. It’s boring. I want to see Juan on TV with Robyn or not at all. She’s so pretty! He’s not too bad-looking himself. That is all.

Real Housewives of Potomac

As Juan gets out of the friend zone, Gizellle was over here trying to put Kevin back in. It took homeboy a while to accept the fact that he won’t be sampling those goods but he gets it now. After this particular scene, I am 100 percent sure Gizelle just needed a story line because we wanted to see her date more. She wasn’t interested in that man. It was just free food and laughs. Totally staged. That’s too bad because I kinda thought Kevin was cool and funny.

The Great Falls Anniversary party is finally upon us. The whole season we saw teasers of Karen crying. It was just an emotional moment of hearing her mother’s voice. Not some drama that Bravo painted it out to be. The theme was confusing and the attire at this party reflected that. Some disregarded it all together. But for the most part, everyone looked nice. I think they should dress in Indian garments more often. At least they get THAT right. Monique tried to be funny and show up in Native American “Indian” attire. Was I the only one absolutely annoyed by that? Not cute or funny. But clearly she is sending a message that she doesn’t take the Grand Dame seriously because…WHY?

Real Housewives of Potomac
Source: Bravo TV
That look on everyone’s face is them trying to figure out why Karen’s house is so big, who these people are and where the liquor is. LOL  They kept that look all night because the real gag for this episode was the public display of affection that the Huger’s showed all night. There was booty rubbing, tongues meeting…real freaky deaky. lol They really didn’t need all of the performances because that was quite a sight to see on its own.

We ended on a high note of love and forgiveness. Ashley apologized for her intrusion on the Dixon relationship and all seems well for now. We shall see how things go for the reunion. But speaking of Ashley…Guess what?

I went to Oz for brunch recently and I will be dishing out my experience very soon on the blog so stay tuned… 😉

Real Housewives of Potomac: Season 2, Episode 11

In this episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Charisse finally gets to host the women on for an evening on the sea. It wasn’t like most boat trips we see on Bravo TV. There were a whole bunch of random actors men. I am not exactly sure where they came from but they weird. Like this guy right here talking to Robyn. Everything was suspect. From his smile to silky legs and duct tape-ish thing around his ankle. He said was a sex injury involving a fan. For real bro? Poor Robyn can’t complete her dating assignment from the therapist with that. I blame Charrisse for introducing those to in the first place.

But as soon as the ladies get Karen and Charrisse in the same corner, they slide away in effort to let “Sha-Sha” and “The Grand Dame” of The Potomac somewhere else hash out their beef. Of course Karen, who has been the most ridiculous claimed the discussion was beneath her. But Charrise was quick to let Karen know that it’s actually her own net worth. *Teehee*

The last day of Bermuda the women headed out to watch a game of cricket. Luckily there was hot (but seemingly younger) men around to watch – Since no one had a clue about the game. Gizelle was loving it.

Robyn STILL didn’t know what to do with herself. Looks like Juan is still on her mind. “Operation: find a date” was an epic fail. She nuh ready fi dis yet.

The day wrapped up with a pajama and rap-off party.  As much tension as there was, I was surprised the women able to put aside their differences for some champagne and laughs.

Ashley couldn’t wait to get home to her boo. She was all smiles entering his office for their executive restaurant meeting….

Real Housewives of Potomac

That was until “Daddy” set that behind down to let her know he modified her role at Oz. According to Michael, Ashley will “go from an owner and manager to just owner”. Funny this is that frown didn’t last too long. Ashley wasn’t as feisty as before. Supposedly Michael made this executive decision to take the unnecessary pressure off Ashley and save their marriage. But doesn’t that look like the face of someone who just got fired? By her husband…

Before the episode was over, the women got together for the unveiling of Charisse’s Champagne Room. Everyone’s face said it all. Charrise is over there looking real….spiritual…like Jesus or something. Too bad it was the office that was “born again”, not her.

This is what $40,000 well spent looks like. It’s HOT!

Real Housewives of Potomac

You know the fun doesn’t last long with these housewives. Charrise and all her coins added insult to Karen’s ego by having her butler welcome everyone to the home of “Grand Dame Charrisse”. Karen tries to regain the spotlight to announce her move to Great Falls, VA. Unfortunately Gizelle already spilled the beans that Mr. Hueger actually moved them while she was in Bermuda. Timing seems convenient for someone who didn’t want to move to begin with, right? We all know something is up. I mean word on the street is that she entered Potomac on a foreclosure and is now renting to own. Hmmmm. Looks like Karen should have kept her story REAL…short and sweet. The more she speaks, the more people don’t believe her. So in case Karen missed the memo, Ashley let her know…You have been demoted.

To which Karen stoops to a new low and calls Ashley an idiot. We know she doesn’t back down, so we shall see next week where this one goes…

Real Housewives of Potomac: Season 2, Episode 10

In this episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, the women go on a girls trip to Bermuda. Everyone planned to leave the drama behind but the tension between Karen and Charrisse increases. Karen went out of her way to let everyone know that this was HER trip by having both the car service and room gifts sent only in her name. Charrisse of course was feeling the shade. If she didn’t pay for it, I am not sure what the big deal was.

Real Housewives of Potomac
Source: Bravo TV

But the ladies get ready for the welcome dinner downstairs that Karen prepared. They all call her out on being the “hostess with the mostess” and she gets super defensive and rude. Then they ask her about where she is moving now that her home is sold. The Gand Dame continues to serve BS and avoid answering the question. She is really in her feelings that she will begin a new phase of her life not only Off The Potomac, but out of Maryland and into Great Falls, VA. There is a really nice park over there.

No one was buying what Karen was selling that evening. She lost major points with the women. Just look at their faces.

The real MVP was Charrisse. She treated herself with a bomb 2-story suite for her birthday and anniversary. The ladies were invited to take a peak and pop some bubbly. Charrisse also offered her makeup artist putting Karen all in her feels.

Between the dinner and this penthouse, Karen secretly plans a boating trip with Monique and Gizelle so that they can “get to know each other”. Of course, it didn’t start off so well. Who wants to be stuck in the middle of the sea with a person they don’t really care for?

The trip ended up with a hug. Can you believe it? Karen did something right. I hope it was worth feeling the wrath of the other women back at the hotel though…

As you can imagine, the women were not feeling being left behind for this little secret trip. I believe it was also Charrisse’s day to host. So before dinner, Robyn decided to pay Karen a little visit and confront her about her shady ways. This moment right here was the calm before the storm.

Things get heated and Karen saw no error in her ways. Isn’t her hair is horrible? You flew someone in for that? I am glad that the women didn’t take her up on her offer for hair services. But when Robyn let herself out of the room, Karen a few words to say about Mrs. Jordan. Karen stooped to all kinds of lows by bringing up “The Fireman” again.

Looks like sh!t just hit the fan. Till’ next time…

Real Housewives of Potomac: Season 2, Episode 9

We have another episode and high and low emotions on The Real Housewives of Potomac.

Despite receiving positive feedback from the critics choice dinner, Ashley’s spirits are still down from the tension between she and Michael. Interestingly enough Michael is very remorseful and anxious to get back on good terms with his wife. Ashley must be holding out (on you know what) because Michael is really trying to make things right.

The dude is so pressed, that he’s suddenly asking to go half on a baby. But guess who’s not up for that discussion? Lol

Robyn on the other hand is still trying to wiggle her way out of her relationship. She finally agreed to go to therapy. And from this session, I am confident that she wants Juan but she just doesn’t trust him enough to put a label on it. Not being “together” probably makes her feel less stupid about being together. But I think we can agree that Juan doesn’t really want her anymore. He actually kind of said it to the producers so I am not sure what he is holding on to either. I am however, absolutely POSITIVE that I am OVER this storyline. It’s boring and those two don’t interact at all. Juan shouldn’t even get air time or be a topic of conversation as far as I am concern.

Then mama Karen invites Grumpy Gizzelle and Mouthy Monqiue to lunch so they can bury the hatchet. I am trying for the life of me to figure out if these two actually squashed their beef …

Real Housewives of Potomac
Source: Bravo TV

Mostly because Charrise just showed up to the brunch, uninvited (by Karen) and made this whole issue about HERE needing her friends to get along. It was weird…she was crying, speech slightly slurre… Was she drunk before she sat down at the table? As a matter of fact, has she been drunk this entire season? Charrisse should change her tag line to “Why cry over spilled milk, when you can cry over champagne”. She gone cry anyway. I need her to sit the next episode out.

Supposedly Karen found someone from China to buy her house in cash and its time for her to move.  To take her mind off of it she joins forces with Charrisse to plan a girls trip to Bermuda. According to Karen, they are the best ones to host they getaway because they are the most mature.

Bill gates is looking into living “Off The Potomac” and that is clearly driving Karen insane. Ironically, this woman has been acting anything BUT mature because she snapped several times over Charrise’s role in this Bermuda trip. Hosting, planning and assisting are very sensitive words to the Grand Dame. Beware.

Oh and THIS is one of Monique’s homes. The lake home, where she hosted 200 guests for her daughters first birthday and dedication. I ain’t mad at ya! The Samuels better come through and upgrade us. lol

Real Housewives of Potomac: Season 2, Episode 8

In this episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, we see Robyn and Jaun in their work element. Love can be so complicated. You could see these two still giving each other “that look” the whole time. Interesting… but as far as the Basketball camp its concerned, it really seems like a great program. However, I don’t think Juan is really that hands-on because the kids seemed pretty surprised to see him there. lol

As much as Monique talks about her life…I really do think she is happy and grateful. I like how each episode we see her and Chris make a conscious effort to have alone time. I would LOVE to see Robyn and Jaun try this on the show. Every time we see those two, they are arguing about responsibilities or being buffered with family.

Now I gotta give it to Momma Karen. She has been giving some decent advice lately. She brought Monique and Ashley out for some golf. Although the young’s weren’t dressed for the occasion, they met with Karen to discuss the tension and how to approach Gizelle, Robyn and Charrisse. Ashley is a little stubborn though. She really feels like she did nothing wrong.

I guess Karen was making her rounds because she set up a double date with Gizelle and Kevin at Autobahn so that she could assess their compatibility. They switched mates and we learned that Kevin does want to get married but that is not necessarily a main priority for Gizelle. However, Uncle Ben Black Bill gates tells Gizelle to snag a man while she can. Comical.

I like Kevin…sure he’s cute but he is also a gentleman and has a great sense of humor.

Here’s where things get juicy. This whole episode was centered around the tension between Ashley and her husband Michael over their restaurant. Ashley has been working on revamping the menu despite Michael’s opposition. To add insult to injury, she presents him with Robyn’s her idea for hosting a “critics choice” dinner to generate buzz, overall the image and gain feedback. Michael’s gripe is that: 1. he doesn’t want to lose the Australian cuisine and 2. Any negative review could do more harm than no review at all. The day of the event, Ashley puts her foot down and asks Micheal to step in and assist but her attitude was triggering him cancel it. After all it is his restaurant. They were really going at it and saying nasty things. Ashley said if the restaurant comes to an end, so will their marriage. That’s pretty serious.

This relationship appears to be contingent on two things: The success of this restaurant and having children. And it’s not looking too good.

As the guests arrive, Michael comes to his senses and realizes Oz’s reputation is on the line. He steps up, shows face and the two put on a front for the sake of business. Ashley is one feisty lady. When Michael finally let her speak the sarcasm was on 100. She basically said “don’t do business with your partner” to a room full of strangers. LOL Sadly, that is probably something I would do. But you know what, women date men their father’s age and expect to be treated like an adult. I think it would be hard for a significantly older and wealthy man to respect his young wife enough to let her take the lead. You will always have to answer to “daddy”.

Ashley must like confrontation because she invites all the ladies to the dinner. Gizelle never has anything nice to say lately. She was complaining about the menu being the same, bitching about emu and didn’t even know what was. Nothing constructive was came out this woman’s mouth. I am not feeling her energy this season. AT ALL.

Then you have Charrisse… who accepts the invite, throws shade before even stepping foot in the restaurant and makes faces as Ashley attempts to apologize. You can’t need free food that bad. Why was she there? Go home. YUCK. I get that Ashley was out of line, passing judgement and living in a glass house…BUT I’d be damn if I invite someone to my event and they behave this way. 

Somehow, Ashley’s apology to Robyn and Charrisse turned to an intervention for her outlandish ways. The women concluded that her confrontations as of late were a direct result of the stress she has with the restaurant and at home. Whatever. 

Till next week…

Real Housewives of Potomac: Season 2, Episode 7

Did you watch episode 7 of The Real Housewives of Potomac? Since I am pretty late withe the commentary, I won’t be covering all of the scenes because this will probably be old news by the time you read it. So let’s get straight to the DRAMA.

THE AMBUSH

We call this scene “the ambush” because that’s exactly what this was. Gizelle loves to talk about how much class Monique doesn’t have yet she put the battery in Robyn’s back to show up to Ashley’s place of business. The two of them thought Ashley’s business was the perfect place to send a firm message to stay out of everyone else’s…business. Isn’t that ironic? LOL

THE BREAKTHROUGH

Robyn bringing it to doorsteps was a clear indication she has reached her breaking point by enduring and defending her relationship with Juan. Earlier in the episode we hear Juan telling producers that he is over it and needs something REAL. Sounds to me like the producers are also forcing these two to be together. With Charrisse currently going through her own healing she invites Robyn along for the journey. I am glad she agreed to meet with the therapist. It’s a start in the right direction to figuring out what is healthy for Robyn’s family and a way to really protect her heart. Because based on the picture below…this ain’t it.

Real Housewives of Potomac

Although traumatic experiences put our guard up, putting those walls down and talking about our feelings are usually the way to healing. Karen did so when she agreed to share her story and empower others who have been a victim of sexual assault.

Real Housewives of Potomac

This was the most empathetic and mature I have seen these women all season.

THE SHADE

I take that back. The younger women showed a lot more class at this event than the older ones. Despite the hostile exchange at the OZ Restaurant, Ashley still greeted Robyn and Gizelle. They just looked like a deer caught in headlights.

Real Housewives of Potomac

Then Charrisse (whose face was beat for the gawds) gives Ashley some more shade when she tried to say hello and spark convo. I am pretty sure an apology would have happened here but there was no penetrating that frown. Gizelle followed suit and turned down the opportunity to exchange numbers with Monique as well. As you can see below, the phone was left hanging. These women want respect but aren’t willing to receive it. Make up your mind ladies.
