Bravo just announced a slew of new and Returning shows set to air on its viewers TV screens throughout the next year. Among the list of returning shows is one of the newer installations of The Real Housewives Franchise; The Real Housewives of Potomac.
Reports about the shows second season are already plentiful and quite revealing. The Washington Post is reporting the show began filming earlier this week and that all of last seasons cast(Karen Huger, Katie Rost, Robyn Dixon, Gizelle Bryant, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, and Ashley Bolach-Darby) will be returning. Many viewers on Twitter responded with some confusion as I think we all thought that there would have been some changes or at least an addition. After sleeping on it, I now think this is a smart move. NOW, they’re housewives and they know it. They know what this is and what it entails. It’ll be THIS season that will give network executives and producers a real feel on what each of these ladies could deliver as a housewife. I also think it’s gonna be in this season that we REALLY get a better feel of who each of these women are. That said, there are some downs to not bringing in some new blood. Housewives tend to “want to play the game” as their time on these shows go on. By this I mean some tend to feel the need to deliver so they’ll start creating unnecessary drama, others tend to become more conscious of the whole thing so they start to censor themselves.
Whatever the outcome of this season ends up being, I’m actually very excited to see what direction the show takes for its second season and look forward to watching when the time comes!
