Have you been missing the ladies of ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac’? Well the WAIT is finally ALMOST OVER, season 3 is ON THE WAY and the DRAMA is even more HEATED than ever! There is a NEW WIFE in Potomac and one ‘WIFE’ has been DEMOTED and relegated to ‘FRIEND’ of the CAST! Get the DETAILS and watch the THRILLING TRAILER after the JUMP!
Original ‘wives’ Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Ashley Darby, and Robyn Dixon along with season 2 addition Monique Samuels all are back but there is a NEW LADY in WAITING and she is a FORMER BEAUTY QUEEN! ENTERS, Candiace Dillard — a 31-year-old former Miss United States with some TIES to the Obama administration! This could be INTERESTING right? Original wife Charrisse Jackson-Jordan has been ‘demoted’ to FRIEND of the wives and does not APPEAR on the OFFICIAL photo with all the LADIES. I am sure the reason will unfold as the season progresses. We not too BROKEN UP about her being out in the background… but that’s another topic for another day…
Back to this NEW ‘WIFE’, Dillard worked in the White House under President Obama before entering the pageant world and now owns her own consulting agency for beauty queens (as well as her own hair collection, among other ventures). But there are cracks the newly-engaged Housewife can explore.
For one, many of the ladies seem to be coming for Karen after The Washington Post broke the story that her husband Ray Huger allegedly owes millions in back taxes.
“We know you’re hiding everything Karen,” Bryant says at one point, after questioning whether Karen and Ray actually live in the big new house in Great Falls they quickly moved into at the end of season 2.
Don’t think the Grande Dame has come undone just yet. Karen’s response? “Read my f—— lips: Karen is debt-free and loaded.”
Karen’s relationship with Ray also comes into question when she confirms Ray had asked for a divorce at some point in their time together. “Do you and Ray have an arrangement?” Ashley then asks, implying the Hugers are in an open marriage
Of course, Ashley has her own relationship worries to address after separating from husband Michael Darby.
While the two try to work things out, her need to be financially responsible for her mother drives Michael to give her an ultimatum she can’t bear. “I can’t continuously be put in this situation,” Michael tells Ashley. “You’ve got to cut her off.”
As they address that, Robyn and ex-husband Juan Dixon appear to have reached a happy place in their relationship — even kissing at one point in the trailer. Their finances are finally back on track too, and they moved into a bigger home.
But not everyone is sending positive energy their way — mainly Ashley, who drives a riff in the group when she questions their relationship.Elsewhere this season, Gizelle has found love with a new man named Sherman — though balancing their relationship with motherhood and her cosmetics line may prove to be too much. And Monique and her husband Chris Samuels finally move into their Potomac home and explore expanding their family more.
That could be hard to balance, as Monique has some battles in the group she needs to handle. “Y’all ain’t no friends of mine that sit there and say you’re concerned,” she screams at one point. “But I’m throwing shade, and I’m throwing hate, and I’m throwing lies? That’s what y’all do!”
The trailer ends with her in a heated fight with one Housewife, screaming, “Back up out of my face before I choke you out with this umbrella.” CHECK OUT THE HEATED TRAILER…
