They’re here! The Real Housewives Of Potomac promised to be elite, etiquette filled, affluent, rich and opulent – it didn’t fulfill the quota.
I enjoyed the first episode because they were women behaving badly, but they tried too hard to appear bourgeois – which they are not. I know that the real elite of Potomac would never be on TV let alone Bravo, if anything they would be on AWE or CNN. All of the ladies except one are of mixed parentage, I don’t say bi-racial as there is only ONE race – the ladies have one black and one white parent. Many viewers took offense to this, I don’t know why.
The Real Housewives Of Potomac is set in Maryland and stars Gizelle Bryant a green-eyed woman who bonds with Robyn Dixon over their green eyes. She was married to Pastor Jamal Bryant, they divorced allegedly because of his cheating. She lives in Potomac aka a surrounding area and claims her friends were in mourning and wearing black when she left the area. She is mess, but I like her. Her wig game is tragic. Gizelle claims to have legacy and lineage, but her refrigerator and stove do not match. Get in the game Gizelle!
Robyn Dixon is divorced from Juan Dixon her high school sweetheart. He played for the NBA on various teams and is now assistant coach for Maryland’s basketball team, they have two children Corey, 7 and Carter, 6. The divorced couple still live together and sleep in the same bed, meaning, we’re still together although not on paper. She tried on her wedding dress for Gizelle, then Juan walked through the door, awkward!
Charrisse Jackson-Jordan is the self proclaimed class queen, who thinks everything and everyone is ghetto. Charisse is ghetto. But to her credit her house appeared to be the only Potomac worth home worth mentioning.
Karen Huger, the self-proclaimed diva, and mother hen, who bears a striking resemblance to Beyonce Knowles’ mother Tina Lawson, thinks she wrote the book on etiquette and claims her husband is the ‘Black Bill Gates’, Karen and Raymond Huger have been married for 19 years, yet Karen’s son Brandon is 27 – there goes the neighborhood. Raymond is ‘only’ worth $40 million, Bill Gates is worth $79.2 billion, so Raymond is missing a few zero’s. Karen ironically is set to release her own line of wigs – why? Her wig game is hideous too. She took Gizelle to task for sitting in the center seat at her birthday dinner.
Lastly Katie Rost has 3 children under the age of 3 and wants her boyfriend to marry her. You have baggage my dear. Katie also claimed to have left her Dr husband when she was 4 months pregnant – that there is reason enough for a man to NOT want to wife you so quickly – you have a track record of bailing at the most ridiculous of times. Katie admits she likes the white boys, except for her short stint as Russell Simmon’s girlfriend and she also likes the Jewish boys. She mentioned that her mother donates $100s million dollars a year. Her mom Rynthia Rost is a VP at Geico and has been there for 21 years, the women also run the Ronald F Rost foundation.
The last member of the crew is Ashley Darby, a young lithe thing married to an older man, she makes an appearance next week. Rumor has it she used to get around the DC area and caught an STD after messing with a married man. Juicy and messy.
