Last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac was so cringe-worthy that Johns Hopkins University had to disassociate with the franchise.
Mia Thornton tried to fabricate some drama when she told her castmate Wendy Osefo that Peter Thomas, RHOA star Cynthia Bailey’s ex-husband, “had beef with her.”
Wendy told her that she was unaware and doesn’t have beef with men. And if Peter was mad, he could call her husband.
Mia got defensive and said that Peter was like family and that Wendy should have told him that she was coming to Miami because he and Wendy were doing business together.
The author of Tears Of My Mother told Mia she didn’t owe Peter a phone call. Mia proceeded to say to her that she knew about business and that she didn’t. Mia added that she was the only black woman in the boardroom.
Wendy threw it right back to her. She said, “Girl, I’m the only Black female that is a professor at Johns Hopkins. And I’m the youngest professor at Johns Hopkins.”
She added, “So don’t tell me how to be a boss because I am a fu**ing boss.”
It was downhill after that, which caused this statement to be issued at the end of the episode, “The Johns Hopkins University has no involvement with The Real Housewives of Potomac.”
RHOP: Mia Thornton’s aggressive actions were uncalled for
Wendy told Mia she didn’t have to call Peter when she came to town. She explained that the only man who needed to know her whereabouts was her husband. She said that if Mia wants to call other men and it’s acceptable in her marriage, then that is her issue.
Wendy explained to Mia that because she wasn’t here for business, she didn’t need to call Peter and tell him she was in town. Mia answered by throwing a drink in Wendy’s face.
She then got up and told Wendy to get up to fight while production’s security was holding her back.
Robyn Dixon started filming the whole thing and said that she was TMZ. She said that Wendy was being antagonistic.
RHOP viewers slammed Robyn Dixon
Actress and social media influencer Jessie Woo took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the episode. She said that Robyn was a bully. The tweet received close to nine thousand likes.
Another RHOP viewer said that Robyn’s actions were despicable. They wrote, “Robyn is the most vile and nasty person at this table.”
Other fans thought that Robyn was the one being antagonistic by filming only Wendy’s reactions and egging her on to fight or stop talking.
Another fan wrote, “Imagine taking Robyn with you on a ‘friends’ trip to Cabo and she does this when someone physically attacks you, and tells you to fight back while laughing and filming. I was immediately triggered.”
Wendy Osefo called her co-stars hypocrites
At the end of the episode, Wendy left the ladies at the table. She said Robyn and Gizelle Bryant were acting like Mia was the victim by defending her. She told them they were hypocrites because when Monique Samuels assaulted Candiace Dillard-Bassett, they said they couldn’t be around violence.
They even said that they were scared of Monique at the time.
Wendy took to social media before the episode aired and hinted that the Green-eyed bandits would try to manipulate the situation. She shared a quote that said, “Manipulation is when they blame you for your reaction to THEIR disrespect!”
Bravo left us with the inevitable, “To be continued,” when Wendy left the table.
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo.
Why is Wendy apart of this group.? She touts her successes, which are real but demeans herself by being in these associations. Some companies have personal code of conducts clauses which could get you fired for actions even if they were not directly related to your work. She should be better than this.
ALL of the cast members are just trash. Go back to the beginning and each one of them has been despicable at one (or many) times. I certainly hope that the rest of the US does not think they are good examples of how women in the DC area live and act.
They’re a disgrace! Don’t know why Charisse would come back and subject herself to such low life behavior. And Robyn and Gisele should both be fired like yesterday. Horrible “women”.
Agree. Professor Wendy Ossefo’s behavior was deplorable (as was Mia, Robyn) and not the first time she was so unhinged and dysregulated, cringe worthy. Is she not worried about losing her political commentary gigs? or fired from John Hopkins University. Apparently not. But as a viewer, she loses credibility in those positions for lack of social emotional intelligence and poor relational displays.
STOP THE VIOLENCE !!! Wendy should carry herself as an example for young black girls as all of them should, but Wendy uses her acheivements to demean others not as fortunate.
She should be fired! I have yet to see her on MSNBC and as far as John Hopkins goes I would hope they could do better than her!
Robyn and Gizelle are the most messy women on the planet. I use to respect Robyn because she was decent but she has rubbed her nose up Gizelle’s behind until she acts like her.
They are all just trashy such a shame!!!!
I Believe part of their paycheck requires them to act like this. It doesn’t matter if I rock with you or not, right is right and wrong is wrong. I refuse to believe they’re this immature.
Such a vulgar display of aggression between 2 middle aged black women. With recent stories on the news about such aggression between black woman, I was so appalled that I have decided to no longer watch Real Housewives of Potomac. BRAVO should not allow this. Perhaps Professor Wendy Osefo will lose her Job at Johns Hopkins which may bring her down to earth.
Wendy is bat $#!+ crazy, she call herself the only black and youngest professor at JH. While that may be true I would not want any of my children attending any the classes she teaches at JH University. I think she needs to see many therapists to get to the bottom of her issues. She should be fired from her teaching positions.
The rest are not people who we should expect good behavior from but I see Wendy as different she is an educated woman who holds a PHD. She should not be acting like a fool. It is embarrassing to everyone!
