This week on The Real Housewives of Potomac we learned that Robyn Dixon really can just “go with the flow.” While Robyn wasn’t given the best accomidations at Ashley’s beach house, she was fine to make the best of it, and enjoy a weekend away with her friends.
Robyn’s took to this week’s Bravo Blog to talk about being kicked off of Katie’s host committee, a committee she was not going to even associate with because of how unorganized things seemed. She also dished on the car ride turned ugly because of a blog; and of course, she discusses the ever controversial room situation on the beach trip that went bad, very quickly!
Bravotv.com: What do you think of Katie Rost’s reaction to your concerns about her gala and her “kicking you off” the committee?
Robyn Dixon: First of all, how in the world can I get “kicked off” of a committee that I NEVER agreed to be on? I saw those red flags coming from a thousand miles away and immediately knew that Katie’s host committee was something that I would not put my name on. I plan events for a living and would never jeopardize being associated with a disastrous event. And, wow, I learned something new about Katie – she is EXTREMELY sensitive and can not handle constructive criticism at all. Katie must have never been told “no” or “maybe” or “wait” or “think again” ever in her life! And if she has, she probably kicked those people out of her life for saying such horrible things!
Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Katie pulled off to the side of the road?
RD: I thought things were going so well on our drive to the beach so I was so confused when Katie suddenly pulled over to stop driving. She seemed to be fine talking about her experiences and had no problem owning her past, so I didn’t notice her all of a sudden getting quiet and more pensive. But somewhere along the way, Gizelle Bryant reading Katie’s blog must have touched a nerve and brought back some bad memories for Katie. I must say “thank you” to Katie though for putting our safety first and having the sense to pull over if she was feeling upset.
Bravotv.com: What do you think of the ladies’ reactions to the beach house and were you thinking when the ladies were Googling places to stay?
RD: Remind me to NEVER invite the ladies to spend the weekend at my house!!! They might be lucky if they get an air mattress to sleep on. I seriously could not believe that they were so allergic to twin beds that they were going to find a hotel to stay in. Sometimes I just don’t know who these ladies are. I mean, did they serve as the Queen of England in their previous lives? This was supposed to be a fun ladies trip and it starts off with a bunch of complaining and whining – how disappointing! I thought to myself, “If this is what the rest of the trip will look like, then I should book my own return ride home.” I just wanted to have a relaxing and fun, kid-free week with my good friends and they seriously made me think that staying home with the kids would have been a better time.
Bravotv.com: Are you glad you tried surfing or do you wish you would have been made in the shade with the other ladies?
RD: Although I was digging sand out of my ears for weeks, I am so glad that I tried surfing! It was very hard but a lot of fun. I have the utmost respect for people who surf competitively. It takes a lot of strength and balance and tons of fearlessness! Of course, I wished that ALL of the ladies would have tried surfing, but who am I kidding, there was no way that the Queens of Nowhere were going to get their hair wet. They wouldn’t have been able to get up on that surfboard anyway! Kudos to me for actually standing up on the surfboard! I wish I could have rode that wave a little bit longer!
I love Robyn on the show, and totally agree with her about Katie. Robyn never agreed to be on the host committee, and it seemed that Katie only wanted her on board because she works in PR. I hope they air this event on camera, which they most likely will. It seems like Katie was depending on other people to do most of the work for her (Karen, Robyn, Gizelle), and that plan fell through. Hopefully she will be able to pull it together, but at this point it is a hot mess!
How refreshing to see Robyn enjoying a weekend at the beach instead of worrying about the rooms. I think we got a great glimpse of the kind of person Robyn is from this reaction. Although I still think the women should have rotated rooms, just sayin’!
Thoughts on Robyn’s blog? Do you agree with what she said about Katie’s event? Were you surprised Robyn didn’t care about the beach trip accommodations? What did you think about Katie pulling over the car, and having a melt down over her break-up blogs?
