New Reality Show: The Real Housewives Of Potomac


Where the heck is Potomac Mills? Well, I put in a google search and it said that this city is about 40 minutes from the nation’s capital of Washington D.C. oh! Still NEVER heard of it or these ladies that Bravo is bringing to our tv screens soon. Just the name alone makes me not want to tune in and they ALL look hella BORING just like the other franchise The Real Housewives of D.C. that flopped flat on their face and was cancelled. Not much is popping off in this conservative town but government gossip, affairs, embezzlement, extortion so what is so interesting to Bravo producers about them doing another reality show there? I don’t get it and from looking at the trailer, I almost fell asleep! If they perhaps did a show in Chicago, that may have worked but these women of color in Maryland will have NOTHING on our beloved girls here in Atlanta, if that is what they were trying to do. We shut all of the other franchisers down lol! Check out the full cast and what they do inside and a peek of the show…

This January, pack your bags and prepare to head to Potomac, Maryland for the latest addition to the Housewives family, The Real Housewives of Potomac. Located just up the river from our nation’s capital of Washington, D.C., Potomac is a cozy, upscale enclave with gated mansions, rolling hills, and exclusive country clubs. Viewers will be introduced to the wealthy African-American families who have broken racial barriers and now reside in the sophisticated community. The Real Housewives of Potomac will follow socialite and single mom Gizelle Bryant, international model and TV personality Katie Rost, grand dame Karen Huger, social butterfly Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, publicist and single mom Robyn Dixon, as well as restaurateur Ashley Darby.

If we’ve learned anything from this first look, it’s that Potomac residents throw a lot of parties, and place a strong emphasis on the distinction between old money versus new money and proper etiquette. “If you haven’t heard of Potomac, that’s fine, because that means we’ve done a great job of keeping it a nice, little secret,” Gizelle explains of the town she calls home. It’s also a place where playing by the rules is very important. “If you don’t behave yourself in Potomac, you might be asked to leave,” Katie adds. The Real Housewives of Potomac premieres Sunday, January 17 at 9/8c.

Oh and by the way, they are headed to Dallas, Texas next…sigh!

  1. Dear Tami,
    Potomac Mills is a shopping Outlet in Woodbridge Virginia. Some refer to the area as Potomac Mills, VA.
    This new show is based on a very wealthy and upscale section of Maryland called Potomac, MD. An area of Maryland exclusive to such power players as the Kennedy clan. It home to politicians, corporate execs, national sports players etc. It’s about 12 miles from DC. Two distinctly different parts of the DMV (DC,Maryland,VA). Should be interesting to see how this show unfolds. Surprised they came back to the DMV!

  2. Hi Tami,
    Yes, please fact check. Potomac Mills is NOT Potomac, Maryland!!!! PM is northern Virginia. Potomac, MD is a swanky, WEALTHY area of Maryland. Mansion and estates galore. All the power players live there. THe demo is probably about 25-30% black. Just guessing but its in the low range. Potomac Mills is your average, middle class suburb. It’s really known for the Potomac Mills shopping outlet!!! It’s not Potomac,MD That was a bad Google search, if it came up as Potomac,MD.

  3. Miss Tami, In your post you mentioned doing a “google search”. You didn’t say you got it from Bravo. Anyway, shame on Bravo, they should know better. Boring is probably right! You don’t get the stereotypical craziness from a Potomac woman that these reality shows rely on to create drama. I can’t imagine how this will be interesting. I’ll watch for a minute. “Bloop”.

  4. I grew up .in Potomac Maryland. I graduated from Walt Whitman high school. I was guessing that maybe they’re not allowed to say Potomac? maybe that’s a bad example but there is no Potomac Mills and from the trailer I’ve seen it’s completely not accurate of Potomac folks. quite frankly people in Potomac don’t do reality TV shows. maybe that explains why only one actress even lives in Potomac. Beverly Hills 90210 was taken off Churchill High School in Potomac they had to name it 90210 because no one knew what 20854 was. I won’t be watching it, I don’t waTCH any of them but I wish the show the best of luck

  5. I don’t understand why Bravo ignores the Latina community? They are the only demo that is not represented (even as a friend) in the Housewives franchise. There are plenty of beautiful, successful Latina Sisters that deserve to shine. They need to hire Evelyn Lozado as a lead and build a cast around her.
