Just up the river from our nation’s capital lies a hidden gem—Potomac, Maryland. Its rolling hills, gated mansions, sophisticated prep schools, and exclusive country clubs all serve to keep the area invitation-only. Sprinkled throughout this community are a handful of old-line, wealthy African-American families who have historically broken racial barriers to provide a life of privilege for their children. The Real Housewives of Potomac follows the upscale lives of six intriguing, well-to-do women: Gizelle Bryant, Katie Rost, Karen Huger, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, Robyn Dixon, and Ashley Darby, all of whom have fought for their places in this society by way of legacy or marriage. In a town where entry is granted only through class, pedigree, and lineage, how far will these ladies go to secure their spot at the top of this prestigious circle?
Andrew decides to take a trip to Scotland without Katie. Ashley hears her biological clock ticking.
Whether or not her husband, Eddie, shows up for the big party, Charrisse is determined to celebrate her 50th birthday to the tune of $80,000 of his money. The future of Robyn and Juan's relationship hangs in the balance as they finally get the news about a possible job out of state. Ashley and Karen's friendship may have reached the point of no return.
