Real Housewives of Potomac Recap Episode 9 2016

Real Housewives of Potomac Episode 9 2016 RecapLet’s run through all the piddly, stupid stuff before Charrisse Jordan’s party of the century.

Ashley Darby wants to take care of her mother. Her mother has never wanted to be a burden. She’s been hit hard financially, and tearfully accepts Ashley’s offer to buy her a home. Katie Rost should stay lip locked with Andrew, and keep herself out of hot water. Instead, she bitched about Karen’s podunk cocktail party/O’Gala. Then she turned her tongue on Gizelle being a “genuinely good person with a spiritual heart, but dresses like a prostitute and can be a little bitchy.” This was (hands down) tonight’s LOL moment.

Real Housewives of Potomac Episode 8 2016 Recap

Real Housewives of Potomac Episode 8 Recap

Most of tonight’s episode focused on two things: Gizelle’s desire to create a new makeup line for women of color, and Karen’s gala for Alzheimer’s Awareness. Since so much time was spent checking their looks in the mirror, let’s call this episode “MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL.” It’ll be fun, so just roll with it. “Mirror, Mirror on the wall…who’s the grudge-holdingest one of all?” (Swirly, Swirly, Smoky Swirly—-that’s the mirror searching for answers…) “I see many who cannot let go…but for TWO I see it is TRULY so…And their names are Karen Huger and Katie Rost!”

Real Housewives of Potomac Recap Episode 7 2016

Real Housewives of Potomac Episode 7 Recap

Their Potomac circle is broken, but individually the housewives have much to celebrate.  Let’s start with Karen. Her daughter is heading off to college. And since Karen knows that boys get reckless after midnight, she tells Rayvin to avoid kissing during her freshman year. Rayvin seals the deal with a handshake. Then, Queen Karen locked Rayvin in the tallest Potomac tower, so she could grow a long braid and her prince could climb up for her “first kiss” senior year. Ah, fairy tales are wonderful.

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF POTOMAC Episode 6 2016 Recap

Real Housewives of Potomac

Show of hands: Who’d complain about a free vacation to a beautiful Bethany Beach house with friends? You WOULD? Well congratulations, because Gizelle and Charrisse would too! More on that later.

There’s been some trouble brewing the last few episodes between Katie and Gizelle. Even though Gizelle agreed to help Katie with her Casino Royale fundraiser, she and Robyn felt that with less than three weeks notice there wouldn’t be enough time to make it successful. And why put their efforts (and their names) on a losing project? Katie got annoyed and fired her volunteers, noting that ALL of her projects were successful. How about Andrew’s marriage proposal? How’s that project coming along?

Real Housewives of Potomac Episode 5 2016 Recap

Real Housewives of Potomac
We could start with Ashley this week, but let’s not. We’ll save the worst for last. So, here we go:    

Gizelle went on a second date with Herman. Sadly, the coolest thing about Herman was his  name. He was sporting mint green pants. And though he had never eaten raw oysters, he still   ordered them. He was hoping his second date connection with Gizelle was for “forever”, and he  even told her so. And <<<cringe>>> he moved in for a kiss only to have Gizelle recoil, as  though he was Quasimodo. Luckily for Herman, Gizelle would need a safe nerdy date to take to  Karen’s yacht party later in the episode, and he met the requirements for that. Clearly, Herman  was never going to be HER­MAN.

Real Housewives of Potomac Recap Episode 1 2016

REAL HOUSEWIVES OF POTOMAC

Potomac is an insulated hive, swirling in money, Honey. It’s elite status is propagated by a very small colony of lady Bees. At the center, (and don’t you ever forget her) is the Queen Bee herself, Karen Huger. If you throw her a birthday dinner, don’t you dare sit in the center seat, or selfishly order yourself an appetizer while you wait. THAT seat is reserved for the honored guest (even if she’s late, and you’re hungry enough to eat your own arm). If you poke HER hive, you can bank on getting stung (and zapped with a fresh copy of an etiquette book) because...don’t you know she’s married to the “black Bill Gates”?

Hiring an Attorney

Whether you need an attorney or not will generally depend on the complexity of your transaction and whether you want to spend the money for the advice. However, having a good attorney who is well-versed in legal matters can be very important, since it reduces the chances that you’ll make an expensive mistake. While your attorney won’t work for free, they might cost you a lot less than a legal mistake would, so it’s important to think carefully about whether you want that help and representation.
