Bravo Announces The Addition Of Real Housewives Potomac And Real Housewives Dallas
You may or may not remember a few months ago we warned you that Bravo had another primarily black cast of Housewives headed to the air… Well it appears the time has come for the big reveal.
Bravo posted this snap on Instagram today:
Today, @BravoTV announced not one, but TWO new Real Housewives franchises! 🍷 Meet the ‘Wives of The Real Housewives of Potomac, premiering January 17 @ 9/8c, and get ready for Texas-sized drama on The Real Housewives of Dallas, coming in 2016! 🐎 For a sneak peek of #RHOP, head to BravoTV.com. #RHOD
Ready or not, the “Real Housewives of Potamac” are coming to a small screen near you.
As BOSSIP previously revealed, Katie Rost is part of the cast along with Robin Dixon and Gizelle Bryant, the other wives include Charrisse Jackson Jordan, Karen Huger and Ashley Darby.
Here’s what Bravo had to say on their site:
This January, pack your bags and prepare to head to Potomac, Maryland for the latest addition to the Housewives family, The Real Housewives of Potomac. 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.
If we’ve learned anything from this first look, it’s that Potomac residents throw a lot of parties, and place a strong emphasis on the distinction between old money versus new money and proper etiquette. “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,” Gizelle explains of the town she calls home. It’s also a place where playing by the rules is very important. “If you don’t behave yourself in Potomac, you might be asked to leave,” Katie adds. The Real Housewives of Potomac premieres Sunday, January 17 at 9/8c.
What do you guys think? The trailer seems action packed. Sure looks like this won’t be the colossal fail that DC was.
