Et tu, Potomac?RELATED: ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ sidekick indicted on conspiracy, fraud and other charges
It has been a while since we heard from the lovely ladies of Bravo’s Washington reality show, “The Real Housewives of Potomac,” which ostensibly chronicles the lifestyles of the mostly divorced and D.C. adjacent. Last we heard, original cast member Katie Rost, the former model and “ball and gala gal,” had been given the buh-bye (apparently she wasn’t “exciting” enough) and Season 2 of the show began filming in April.
But the good news stops there apparently. According to a person with knowledge of the production, Bravo is on the fence about its Potomac offering. Cast members had hoped the show’s second go-round, which wrapped in late summer, would piggyback on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which premiered its ninth season on Nov. 6. But that’s not happening.
Another source with knowledge of the production team’s decisions said the premiere date of the show has definitely been pushed back. Bravo, said this source, wants to find out if RHOP can “stand on its own,” without a carry-over audience boost from the well established Atlanta show.
“The ladies are getting very nervous,” our source said. “They’re all feeling major anxiety and fearful that their show may not air. It’s definitely holding on by a string. . . . For right now, the ladies are on pins and needles.”
A representative from Bravo did not respond to a request for comment.
