Not only did Charrisse Jackson Jordan's daughter Skylar celebrate her 16th birthday with a big and beautiful bash, but her husband, Eddie Jordan, made his first appearance on RHOP.RELATED: 'Real Housewives of Potomac' recap: Things are picking up ... maybe
We've been witness to the crumbling of Charrisse and Eddie's marriage since last season of RHOP. Charrisse dropped the bombshell at the Season 1 reunion that Eddie had not spoken to her since the show started airing. She also shared earlier this season that Eddie has decided that he wants a divorce.
Still, Charrisse said she fully expected Eddie to show up to Skylar's big day since it was such a special occasion for his family. "It wasn't surprising that Eddie was at his daughter's party. He's a very supportive father. He's a great father. He's always there for his children," Charrisse told The Daily Dish prior to the episode airing. "We're co-parenting, and we do the best we can as parents to give our kids the best life and make them as happy as humanly possible. So him being in the room was no surprise."
Charrisse told The Daily Dish that she hadn't seen Eddie "in a while" prior to Skylar's birthday party. Though they had talked before then, their conversations mostly concerned Skylar and her older brother, Jackson, 18. "We have children, so we have to communicate about things that pop up with the children. We don't have conversations where we call each other and say, 'Hi, how are you doing?' It's strictly about the children," Charrisse explained. "I'm 51, and I forget timeframes of things. I really don't know how long it was, but like I said, we're not in regular conversations with each other. So in terms of going from a place where we used to talk to each other on a regular basis, it had been a very long time."
Charrisse added that "it was good to see him though."
