This week on The Real Housewives of Potomac the ladies headed to Bethany Beach, Delaware for some fun in the sun! This was their first weekend away as a group and Ashley was hosting. She was very nervous, so Karen Huger offered to help her with the weekend, and score herself the nicest room!
Karen was rubbing it in the other ladies faces that she had the best room, especially after they found out where they would be staying. This week in her Bravo Blog Karen reveals she thought Gizelle and Charrisse were kidding about being upset with their twin beds. She also took the time to throw some MAJOR shade at Gizelle; and in a turn of events Karen got sensitive about the sister circle, and her mother’s past condition.
Bravotv.com: Why did you offer to help Ashley Darby? What do you think of skills this weekend (so far)?
Karen Huger: Ashley really wanted the beach trip she was planning for the girls to be a big success. I wanted this for her as well. Hence, I offered to help her. As it turned out Ashley didn’t need much help from me at all. What Ashley really needed was moral support. Once we got to the beach house she shared that she was personally making refreshing cocktails for the girls to enjoy upon their arrival, she hired a chef to prepare dinner and she thoughtfully assigned each girl their roommates based upon relationships with printed name tags to boot! Ashley’s hosting skills are on point, AT this point.
Bravotv.com: What do you think about the other ladies’ reactions to the accommodations?
KH: Honestly, we all were having a fantastic time until the reveal of the room accommodations. I thought both Gizelle Bryant and Charrisse Jackson Jordan were kidding with their childish display of disappointment and disapproval. I was wrong!
Bravotv.com: What is your reaction to Gizelle saying you would make a fuss if it was your twin bed?
KH: First of all my girl Gizelle has not been able to pronounce my name right for quite sometime now – BTW Gizelle, it’s KAREN. Now she wants to speak for me. It’s no surprise that her OPINION about how I would respond if I had been assigned a twin bed is just that, her opinion. I believe Gizelle finally came to her senses and realized that she was acting like a child whose candy just got stolen and made a poor attempt to deflect by casting shade my way. I’ve always said you were S-P-E-C-I-A-L “Gizzy,” you got this one, girl. TAKE A BOW!
Bravotv.com: Tell us about opening up about your mother.
KH: I loved the sister circle concept. Opening up about my Mother’s condition during this time was truly uplifting. At the end of the day, we’re friends and knowing that I can lean on them for support in a time of need is priceless.
It was very nice of Karen to compliment Ashley’s hosting skills, but unfortunately she was the only one who felt that way. Karen and Ashley seem to be forming a genuine bond; however that conversation in the car where Karen told Ashley to stay away from her daughter was very uncomfortable.
As Gizelle revealed exclusively to AATRH yesterday, she and Karen are on good terms now, I wonder how she will felt after reading this blog. If the shoe was on the other foot I don’t think Karen would have stayed and slept in the twin bed, and I thought her behavior when Gizelle and Charrisse were upset was obnoxious. Karen, be real, you would have never stayed in those beds; you were refusing to even share a room!
Thoughts on Karen’s blog? Do you think Karen would have slept in a twin bed? Do you think her behavior was obnoxious? Are you surprised she and Ashley are getting so close? Did you think it was uncomfortable when Karen told Ashley she should stay away from her daughter? What did you think of this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac?
