Introducing ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac’; meet the cast


Bravo is moving forward with “The Real Housewives of Potomoac.” For quite some time, the streets have been talking about “Maryland’s best kept secret,” and now the network has previewed a clip of the upcoming series set to premiere in January. Located just up the river from our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., Potomac is an upscale enclave with massive, gated mansions, regal rolling hills, and exclusive country clubs with entry only to those with class, pedigree or lineage. There’s new money and even more old money. In other words, we anticipate a lot of drama surrounding newcomers.

According to Bravo, “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.”

If we’ve learned anything from the first look, it’s that Potomac residents like to party, love the word “etiquette,” and status is everything. “If you haven’t heard of Potomac, that’s fine, because that means we’ve done a great job of keeping it a nice, little secret,” cast member Gizelle explains in the promo clip. “If you don’t behave yourself in Potomac, you might be asked to leave,” adds fellow cast member Kate. If you’re interested in yet another Real Housewives spin-off, “The Real Housewives of Potomac” premieres Sunday, Jan. 17 at 9 EST.
