The self proclaimed, “Grand Dame” of Potomac set out to mend the rift in the cast, however she ended up starting new, unnecessary drama. Recently she spoke to Bravo and got candid on this week’s episode; she offered up advice to her co-stars, and questioned why Gizelle Bryant was upset that Robyn Dixon vented to her about their issues!
“It’s beyond absurd to me that Gizelle would be feeling a particular way about Robyn choosing to speak to me about their troubled friendship. She came to the right person! Robyn came to the Grande Dame to vent. Who else? The writing was on the wall – these two needed to talk one on one NOW NOT LATER. Gizelle needs to seize this opportunity, save her friendship and thank me later,” Karen boasted.
Karen was visibly ecstatic to have Rayvin home from college, although she was called out big time for dissing cheesesteaks. Her pretentious tone gets her in trouble every time, but she tried to defend her words and admitted that people in Potomac do eat cheesesteaks!
“I’m very happy Rayvin is home from college visiting. It’s wonderful to see her growing and embracing the next chapter in her life. I especially enjoyed her story about the disgusting cheesesteak she had to consume. While cheesesteaks are quite common in Potomac, I am sure the one she had is in a starving college student’s food league ALL by it’s lonesome. I prefer my daughter to eat organic foods,” she clarified.
Karen gave major props to Robyn for organizing a day at the races, and all of the ladies agreed that this was a great bonding experience!
“Robyn knocked this get together out of the park,” Karen complimented. Elaborating, “It was exactly what we all needed. The ladies were having a good time. EvenCharrisse Jackson Jordan found a warm fuzzy spot in her heart and let Gizelle off probation. It was a beautiful day for the race and the cocktails were flowing. Quite possibly cocktails were flowing a little too much as Miss Gizelle absconded with the loot. I haven’t seen a dime of the winnings. Can we all say W-R-O-N-G,” she explained.
Then Karen jumped at the opportunity to preach, and offered up marriage advice to Ashley Darby; hopefully she had some actual words of wisdom that could help the Darby’s crumbling marriage.
“I know that Ashley and I have had our differences but I do consider her a friend,” Karen confirmed. Adding, “It’s never a good thing to hear a friend’s marriage is in trouble. Marriage isn’t easy, its work. I’ve been married quite some time and if there were any words of wisdom I could give Ashley it would be to figure out what’s really more important, the business or their marriage. If the marriage is the priority, then fight for your marriage. As two women married to businessmen we are well aware that business opportunities come and go, that’s the nature of the beast. Don’t’ let anyone or anything destroy the love that brought the two of you together. Marriage albeit not perfect is a rare gift, not everyone receives it and few can hold on to it,” she revealed.
Karen clearly likes newbie Monique Samuels, and she weighed in on the heated confrontation with her mother-in-law; for once, Karen actually admitted that she had no input since she’s never been in that situation!
“Wow this is a first for me. I can’t speak to how I would have handled Monique’s situation because my relationship with my mother-in-law was totally different. Mrs. Odessa was the greatest champion for our marriage. Having said that, no family is perfect and there will be disagreements from time to time. Monique knows where she stands in her marriage. Chris has made it clear he loves her and she comes first. Mrs. Samuels is Chris’s Mom and you only get one Mom. It’s very smart of Monique to allow Mrs. Samuels to have her say today. I’m with Monique on this one – More Wine Please,” Karen wrapped.
