Car crashes, geriatric grannies, Nemacolin, dizzy bitches, & scentertainment
Going into it’s third season, the Potomac ladies have officially made it; they have all the things you need to be a longstanding housewife franchise: arguments, trips, everyone insisting on everyone apologizing to everyone, and closed door conversations. However, My Hollywood Hangover is here to get more in depth.
Since the first season and her “spring chicken” tagline, I’ve always been Team Ashley. I think I tend to gravitate to the younger housewives because I can relate more to them (except Meghan King Edmonds; I never liked her once). I think Ashley is gorgina, fun, & playful. . Plus, Ashley’s had the best reaction faces this season (or possibly of any season, of any franchise!).
Watching her last week, arguing with her mother, was devastating to watch and my whole heart goes out to her for that.
I also a big fan of the green eyed monsters (I think that’s what Monique called them). Gizelle has been my other long standing favorite of Potomac, where as I didn’t really love Robin. But, I respect Robin, and all she’s going through with Juan, plus you have to admit, Gizelle and Robin together are TV gold!
I feel pretty indifferent about Candiace … I like her, but don’t loooove her (I never do with the new girls though).
The women I am truly not not not here for however, are Karen, Monique, and messy messy Charrisse (who I am beyond glad is no longer full time). I’ve never liked how Karen thinks “she’e so above everyone dahling”, plus you can just see how she’s lying about Ray, his legal issues, and “blue eyes.”
Monique thinks since she made it a second season, she’s the new star of the show, smoking her cigars left and right … only to inhale and throw up in the bushes?! What the … ?? I also completely completely agree with the fact that her reputation could be ruined by the accusation of having a drinking problem or being too drunk to drive. But I am so confused as to how she would just fall asleep in the middle of the day driving, enough to hit a tree, and then hop on a bus for a girls’ trip the next day was it, like nothing happened. I’d be devastated if something like that happened to me, and would probably want time with my family to reflect. Oh well, not in her shoes right?
And finally, Charrisse? Girl there is a reason you are just a side piece this season.
First off, this moment, was PRICELESS! Ashley did look like a younger version of Karen! I also loved how Ashley could repeat so many lines from past seasons; I’m also glad Karen had a sense of humor about it!
The trip looked really fun, and I was happy to see the ladies not afraid to try activities in nature! While we got to see some fun arguments (Charrisse v. Candiace, Karen v. Gizelle), Nemacolin also taught us a few things: Karen can be an angry drunk, Ray once asked Karen for a divorce, & Karen may set Charrisse up with “blue eyes.”
Ashley claimed Karen & Mr. Blue Eyes were spotted … at Ashley’s restaurant, Oz! That is extremely hard for me to believe. Think about it: if you’re having a date with the person you’re having an affair with, why would you go to your friend’s restaurant?! Perhaps it wasn’t a date, but they had too much to drink and that was how the “compromising position” occurred? Or, it just didn’t happen like Karen said (shoulder shrug) ????????
Revelations & Conversations
Well, this was the image we were left with before tonight’s episode airs. I’m excited to see where the rest of the season goes. I really hope the ladies take a longer, across the ocean trip because I’m certain drama would ensue if they did. I could care less about Karen’s perfume or Candiace’s wedding (think it will air on TV?), but I do hope Ashley gets things worked out with her mom & husband, and I hope Gizelle gets some answers from Sherman because she deserves a good man!
Here’s to us all watching!
