With Nene gone from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, we should’ve known Bravo would have something big up its sleeve, but honestly we thought the Real Housewives franchise was on its way out. Clearly, we couldn’t been more wrong as the network just announced the creation of an entirely new franchise: The Real Housewives of Potomac. And if you’ve already noticed it’s chock full of, er, “color,” you’d be right. As the Daily Dish explained:
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.
In other words, get ready for another set of boughetto black women acting a fool. And no, that’s not a pre-judgement; we’ve already watched the trailer. See for yourselves below and let us know if you’ll be watching The Real Housewives of Potomac when it premieres Sunday, January 17 at 9/8c. P.S. The Real Housewives of Dallas is happening next year too.
