Have you missed the ladies of Potomac in their absence from our screens?
If so, then The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 Episode 1 was most definitely the episode you were craving. It had it all: Catfights, Fashion and a whole lot of shade.
When the episode got underway, Gizelle Bryant was trying on a new wig and implying she knew better than Beyonce. “Becky and all of her good hair don’t have nothin’ on me.” Yeah, we believe you Gizelle. If that was not self-centered enough, Gizelle then pleaded with her hairdresser to let her speak about her new boyfriend.
“Can we talk about my man? … Kevin. … I dunno if we’re gonna mingle, but we’re at least gonna give it a shot.” Um, Gizelle, it sure seems like you don’t know much about your man. “If he comes in a short package, that’s fine. As long as not everything is short,” she concluded.
After that, we checked in with Charrisse — who was no longer reeling from the events that paved the way for her husband to ditch her. “Charrisse last year was a very unhappy person and holding onto damaged goods. … Charrisse don’t live here anymore.”
Charrisse also revealed that she sent a cease and desist letter to Charrisse for chatting smack about her to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.
Meanwhile, Ashley revealed that things between her and Michael were not good and part of that was down to their restaurant not doing good business.
“We’re eight months in, and it’s been a very difficult time. … People weren’t really digging our food.” She then opened up about their dire finances, saying, “Michael has invested over 1.5 million dollars, and he’s taking care of it until we make ends meet. It’s putting a strain on my relationship.”
That’s a whole lot of money to invest in something that appears to be failing. Ashley was not the only cast member struggling with dire straits on the financial side of things. Robyn revealed that things were not going well. “As a result of all of our financial challenges, our house ended up going into foreclosure.” She then opened up about her husband, Juan and his desire to become a couple again. “Juan wants us to be a couple again, but there’s a block up that’s preventing me from looking at our situation as a relationship.”
After that, Charisse revealed that her husband wanted to part ways with her. “He’s wanting a divorce.” She continued, “I decided that you know what? My children are what’s important. … We haven’t talked about it so much. … Hopefully, he gets a job.”
Later, Gizelle stirred up some drama for Charrisse. Robyn was trying to bring the feud to an end, but defended Charrisse in the process. “I don’t feel like she was calling you a whore. … Didn’t she say something like, ‘I’m not going around calling you a whore?’”
“You were wrong for putting her business out there.”
However, Robyn’s words were not enough to tone down Gizelle, who went forward with some more claims about her former friend. “She has told me she cheats on Eddie,” Gizelle claimed. Is she lying? We have no idea.
At the Manifest Your Destiny competition charity event, Gizelle tried to stir up some more drama. This time it was all down to a dancer named Teon who was grinding on Ashley. Ashley did win first place in the competition, but Charrisse was too busy turning her attentions to Gizelle.
“I did not call you a f–king whore. Don’t let the zip code fool you, baby.” Gizelle seemed to retreat, but is she just biding her time to ruin Charrisse’s life?
