'Real Housewives of Potomac' news: New Bravo show features African-American affluent women who will bring exciting drama, funny moments


New addition to Bravo’s reality series “Real Housewives of Potomac” has recently premiered, featuring a new set of divas who will bring exciting drama to the small screen.

The cast members introduce themselves in a teaser video with Gizelle Bryant saying, “The word in the street is that I’m the word in the street,” while Karen Huger says “In Potomac, it’s not about who you know, it’s who you are… and I’m everything!”

Katie Rost also quips with, “I’m a ball and gala girl. It’s my legacy and my calling.” Robyn Dixon also puts on her take stating, “I don’t have a cookie-cut out life, and I’m not apologizing,” as it was revealed that she is dealing with the struggle of being a divorcee but still sharing her home and even her bed with her ex-husband.

Lastly Charrisse Jackson-Jordan says, “If I don’t know who you are then you’re not worth knowing,” as it turns out that she is around the area but it remains to be seen if that is actually a good or a bad thing.

According to New York Post, the latest iteration to the franchise seems to revolutionize the usual patterns in the other “Real Housewives” shows as it is being lead by African-American well-off ladies whose husbands range from pro basketball coaches to real estate developers to high-tech moguls.

The representation of the community is refreshing as the women are proud of their legacy, celebrating being biracial and seeing the color of their skin as a privilege alongside with their high standards of living in the affluent D.C. suburbs of Montgomery County.

In comparison to the show’s counterparts in New Jersey and Atlanta, the “Real Housewives of Potomac” will not have the same antics and physical confrontations, but will instead bring out the housewives’ dilemma with words spoken through acerbic tongues. But despite their differences, the ladies will be friends with each other.

Bravo Media’s executive vice-president of current production Shari Levine shared that they are a bunch of saucy and funny women, “There is a lot of hilarity. They are a supportive group of women with each other… They are really inspirational and aspirational.”

New episodes of “Real Housewives of Potomac” air every Sunday at 9 P.M.
