6 Lessons On Etiquette Learned From The Real Housewives Of Potomac
When Bravo first announced its newest housewives franchise, fans took to Twitter with the hashtag #WheresPotomac. Potomac, which is in Maryland (you’re welcome), is one of the “Richest Cities In The Nation.” Bravo even describes Potomac as “a town where entry is granted only through class, pedigree, and lineage.” Since the Real Housewives franchise was basically created to give viewers the satisfaction of watching very rich women spend their massive amounts of money, we’re thinking Potomac is a good thing!
The premiere episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac revealed just how much drama can be stirred up when certain socialites choose not to follow the rules of etiquette. Karen Huger, the self proclaimed HBIC of the group (whose husband, Raymond, is the president and CEO of an IT company), decided to give Gizelle Bryant, a woman who says Potomac is an exclusive community where “only legacy or a large cash flow can get you in,” a lesson on etiquette.
If you ever plan on going to Potomac, here’s some rules you should (maybe, but not really) abide by…
1. Don’t sit in the middle of the dinner table when it’s somebody else’s birthday, even if the birthday queen is terribly late.
2. Hosts should always be in charge.
3. Guests should never order their food before the birthday honorary arrives.
4. Don’t send your makeup artist’s assistant up the stairs at your friend’s house to help her with her makeup, even if she should have been ready before you got there.
5. Lay out a spread of cookies for your esteemed guests.
6. Know your Potomac etiquette, but also don’t school anybody on theirs.
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on Bravo.
