Karen Huger is the self-proclaimed Grand Dame of Potomac, and with her title comes an heir of class and sophistication most of the time.
However, this OG of The Real Housewives of Potomac used Twitter to go on the offensive side towards her co-star, Robyn Dixon, after Sunday’s episode aired and Karen heard something she didn’t appreciate.
The ladies took a cast trip to Miami, hosted by fellow Housewife Mia Thornton, and Mia played a game with the ladies in regards to room assignments in the multi-million dollar vacation home right on the water.
Anyone who has seen a vacation episode knows that Housewives treat room assignments like the Olympics. Mia and Karen are good friends and also neighbors, so Mia gave Karen a primo room on the lower level.
Robyn said in a confessional that the only reason Karen got a good room was because she is the oldest in the group, and Karen didn’t take too kindly to being “age shamed” by Robyn.
Karen spoke her piece on Twitter, calling Robyn a “hard 40” and accusing her of bullying. She also reminded Robyn that her perceived insult would only lift Karen higher, reminding Robyn that she was still the Grande Dame.
Karen Huger got criticized by followers for her tweet about Robyn
While some of Karen’s Twitter followers stood behind her and defended her response to Robyn, many thought it was in bad taste. Not only did it attack Robyn, but some believed Robyn’s words were not insulting in the first place — just straight facts.
When it came to Karen’s tweet, some fans responded to tell her that it was not a good look for her and to “do better.”
“This is not a good look for you… I know you can do better… stop doing this,” one fan responded.
Another fan of Robyn dropped in to say that Karen is the oldest in the cast and Robyn looks great.
“But she wasn’t shaming. She said you are the oldest, which is true. No harm,” another viewer replied.
A RHOP fan simply said, “How is her saying you’re the oldest one there age shaming? Isn’t that a fact or are you not the oldest? Where’s the lie?”
Karen Huger ‘brings it’ in Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Potomac
Back in July, Gizelle said of her longtime frenemy, “She was spilling the tea this season. When does she ever spill tea? She hasn’t spilled tea in seven seasons. I think it’s a different side to her,” adding that Karen previously stayed neutral during the chaotic moments between the other Housewives.
But not this season, Gizelle revealed, saying, “Karen brings it this season. Yes, she does.”
Viewers can’t wait to see Karen “bring it” in the episodes ahead!
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.
