I think we all can agree that Potomac is blowing the other franchises out of the water this season. Between babies, booty grabbing, alleged affairs, and wine throwing, Potomac has come a long way since their early-stage etiquette days. So what went down last night?
Well, in a very appropriately timed event, Wendy holds an even to urge women to get out there and vote. With the US Presidential election just days away, this event aired at the perfect time as Dr. Wendy Osefo encouraged women to make their voice heard and even did some role-playing exercises to help educate the women. It was nice to see Wendy in her element and also a nice break from the salacious gossip from this season; however, we all know that it couldn’t last too long:
Back to the relationships and gossip of Potomac, Gizelle is doing things differently this time around and is making her voice heard in her relationship with ex-husband/now boyfriend Jamal. Gizelle is confused as to where she is going in her relationship after seeing her bestie Robyn and Juan’s progression in theirs. When making her position known to Jamal, he admits he has been ‘in’ the entire time and was waiting on Gizelle to vocalize herself. I can’t help but worry for Gizelle as a leopard doesn’t change its spots so I am still skeptical of this relationship:
Monique on the other hand knows exactly where she stands with the ladies as no one shows up to her event, much to her annoyance as she always supports the other women’s ventures. While venting to Ashley (who is the only one to support her) Monique laments that she wants to prove that she has changed but in order to do that, she needs to see the other women. I do think Monique has regrets; however, I also agree with Robyn that two weeks isn’t sufficient for someone to completely change:
The division between Candiace and Monique continues to affect the entire group as Karen is pressured to take sides and distance herself from Monique. Despite pressure from Wendy and Candiace, Karen refuses to completely abandon Monique despite what the other women think. I understand both sides; however Karen is a grown woman and can make up her own mind, so perhaps the other ladies should back off and let Karen decide for Karen.
The temps may be cooling down on the east coast but it’s heating up in Potomac! Stay tuned.
