We are finally getting our Real Housewives of Washington D.C. back. I’ve been hearing about filming going on since March and the location and the titles have changed a lot. First we were told that they were filming in Prince George County but now apparently the story is they live in Potomac. That’s interesting. Bravo is clearly trying to recreate the RHOA from scratch in a new city. Let’s see if this all black cast can live up to the RHOA level of ratchet and overcome the D.C. housewives curse.
The cast includes Katie Rost, a gorgeous biracial model and TV personality who used host Teen Summit on BET, She also used to date Russsel Simmons and married to Dr. James Orsni in 2011. They have three kids and she runs a of a non-profit for Leukemia research. Apparently, they are separated and/or divorced and she is dating. There may be some shadiness happening here. The streets are talking about this one.
Gizelle Bryant is working on a makeup line. I’ve also heard she has a line of women’s shapewear. She has three daughters and is divorced from popular Baltimore pastor Jamal Bryant. She does some sort of charity work in Birmingham, Alabama where I believe she is from. She comes from old money but not local money. She’s the loud one with a since of entitlement. In other words she is the Nene.
Robyn Dixon, a publicist who is divorced from yet still living with former Atlanta Hawks player Juan Dixon. He is a basketball coach at the University of Maryland. The “divorce” could be so that he could file bankruptcy (which he did) last year and allow her to keep the house. I really don’t know enough to speculate. Yet.
Ashley Darby 22, former Miss Washington D.C. (2011) married to Micheal Darby who is an Australian real estate broker. He’s very rich, and she’s very much younger. Michael has two grown children who are older than she is. Currently, her main job is trying to get knocked up. Sounds like the Porsha. She appears to be the least educated of the bunch.
Charrisse Jackson Jordan married to an NBA player turned coach Eddie Jordan. He doesn’t seem to really live with her, in fact he lives in New Jersey. Perhaps just during the off-season? Something is off in this relationship.
Karen Huger is married to Raymond Huger. He is the CEO of an IT company. They have two kids, one adult and one graduating from H.S. She will probably have the empty nest storyline, much like Yolanda Foster did. Karen is the one obsessed with old money and lives in the best neighborho0d
