'Real Housewives of Potomac' season 2: Production starts without no new cast members


Weeks after “Real Housewives of Potomac” finished its debut run, new updates suggest that the six ladies from Maryland are back in front of the camera for season 2.

Washington Post reported that a source close to the production of the reality show has confirmed the start of productin. Unfortunately, per Bravo’s standard operating procedure, all the cast members are discouraged from having any press association until the filming for the sophomore year wraps up in a couple of months.

Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan and Katie Rost are all coming back for another serving of the show. Usually, as the series progresses, new cast mates are being invited to add dynamic and drama to the fold. However, it looks like the Potomac edition of the “Real Housewives” franchise opted to establish the original stars first before changing the environment by introducing new characters.

Furthermore, the article revealed that there were actually a lot of people who tried out for a part, but no one fit the network’s requirements of a “married (or divorced), connected, even if only tangentially, with a splash of drama potential.”

Despite this, “Real Housewives of Potomac” is still going strong coming into its second season, with or without any additional cast member. Around 2.1 million viewers tuned in to watch its first season. This is the second most successful viewership debut in the franchise since the “Beverly Hills” variation of the hit reality series.

Meanwhile, fans can expect more drama when the show comes back with Charisse and Katie trying to cope with their respective relationships that went sour. Katie specifically is facing a bigger dilemma as her former fianc’s recently unearthed legal documents exposed his past criminal records, which include being indicted for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute illegal drugs.

“Real Housewives of Potomac” is expected to be back for its sophomore season later this year.
