The end of season 2 of The Real Housewives of Potomac is coming soon. On Thursday, Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Charrisse Jordan, Robyn Dixon, Ashley Darby, and Monique Samuels filmed the Season 2 reunion show. It was the second reunion show for returning cast members Gizelle, Karen, Charrisse, Robyn, and Ashley, and the first one for Monique, who replaced Katie Rost for this year’s cast.
Before the reunion show taping, Bravo released the seating chart. Placed to the left of Andy, from closest to furthest from him, were Karen, Ashley, and Monique. Placed to Andy’s right, from closest to furthest from him, were Gizelle, Robyn and Charrisse. Bravo also provided photos of the reunion set, showing a room decked out in luxurious furnishings in rich purple, blue, silver, and gold colors. Reflecting the show’s Potomac location, there were cherry blossom arrangements and motifs.
What did the women argue over and hash out during the reunion show? Some of the major story lines for the seasons so far have involved relationships. Charrisse came to the realization that her marriage to Eddie Jackson, with whom she had largely led separate lives for years, really was over and broke the news to her family and friends. Robyn was questioned over her insistence that her co-living arrangement with her ex, Juan Dixon, really wasn’t bothering and harming her in the long run. In one off-camera moment, Juan, who still had his microphone on, was caught telling a producer that he didn’t want to continue living with Robyn anymore, and if it were not for their kids, he would have left already.
Then there was the marital drama between Ashley and her husband, Michael, stemming from pressures of starting and running a restaurant. During one big blowout fight, Ashley, feeling as if Michael wasn’t treating her as an equal, even yelled at Michael that if he really pulled the plug on the restaurant as threatened, their marriage was over. The next day, Ashley questioned whether they were still in love and decided to postpone having a child.

As for drama between the women, Robyn Dixon, Gizelle Bryant, and Charrisse Jordan have all exchanged strong words with Ashley Darby over their perception that Ashley was needlessly meddling in their affairs. Gizelle and newcomer Monique Samuels are still shown on the latest episodes not getting along, which Monique attributes to Gizelle being jealous of her, something that Gizelle vehemently denies. Karen Huger and Charrisse are also still butting heads over who really is the “grand dame” of Potomac. But does Karen even still live in Potomac? A preview of the next episode shows Gizelle breaking the news to the group that Karen and have her husband, Ray, have mysteriously sold their home and no longer live in Potomac.
On Thursday, host Andy Cohen posted a reflection photo teasing the reunion. Unfortunately for the ladies of Potomac, many viewers left comments on Andy’s photo telling him that the show is boring and that it should just be canceled.
Andy has repeatedly defended The Real Housewives of Potomac. Last year, after it was announced that the show was returning for a second season, Andy explained to one viewer, who questioned the renewal in light of The Real Housewives of Miami‘s cancellation, that the Potomac season 1 ratings were twice that ofMiami.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, after season 2 finished filming, Andy called the season “amazing.”
Luckily for fans of Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Ashley Darby, Robyn Dixon, Charrisse Jordan, and Monique Samuels, it seems that the chances of a The Real Housewives of Potomac season 3 are good. Just last week, in response to one viewer who claimed that Potomac was “tanking,” Andy replied that the show is actually having “record ratings.”
