Up until the last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, the viewers always saw a very polished, unemotional version of Karen Huger. This all changed when she spoke out about the horror of going through sexual assault at an event that was filmed for the show. We got to see Karen being truly vulnerable for the first time and she was very open about her experiences.

She used this platform for good instead of trying to push her own line of whatever products she could be promoting and it was honestly refreshing. It’s so hard watching this Real Housewives installment and looking for aspects that aren’t contrived, but this was one moment that was one hundred percent genuine.

Karen opened up about speaking at the Pave event in her last Bravo blog entry. She recalled, “On the night of the Pave event, I was thinking of a million and one things. I was grateful to have the opportunity to share my story publicly. I was honored to do my part in shattering the silence of sexual abuse. Most importantly, I was hopeful that by sharing my story on the Pave platform we might save a save someone’s life.”

For once, the cast members weren’t making this event about themselves or acting like fools. They really seemed to be there for the intended purpose of the event. Karen stated, “Pave is an organization very dear to me.” She also gave props to her costars: “What I admire about all of these ladies is their ability to put aside the pettiness and come together to support one another. It was comforting to have my friends in the audience. I am grateful for their love and support.” Thankfully, they actually were supportive… for the first time in a while.

But of course, the whole episode wasn’t all about the love and support. There was some petty shit as per usual. Karen was asked about Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon’s confrontation with Ashley Darby at her restaurant. Karen explained, “I get it, Robyn is very upset with Ashley for questioning she and Juan’s relationship at the cookout. I also think it’s appropriate for Robyn to speak with Ashley directly and let her know she wants her to stop meddling.” Fair enough. Ashley was blatantly shit stirring. It’s possible that she was coming from a place of concern, but she sure wasn’t acting like it.

Karen continued, “However, ambushing Ashley at her place of business in front of her customers is DEAD WRONG! Furthermore, could someone tell me why Miss Gizelle is riding gunshot in this ambush?” Gunshot? Did she mean shotgun? I have to assume. But anyway, there really was no reason for Gizelle to be present, other than the pursuit of camera time.

Karen declared, “Once again, ‘Miss Word On The Street’ is traveling down a street she has no business on. Gizelle should have stayed in her truck!” Agreed, Karen.

Tonight is a new episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, starting at 8/7 CST!

Ashley and Michael’s marriage is tested when she unveils a new menu for their restaurant at a press event and Michael attempts to shut it down. Gizelle and Karen head out for a double date where the truth comes out about Gizelle’s date. Meanwhile, Robyn questions her home life and identity after a birthday dinner for her mom. Golf balls fly when Karen attempts to mend fences between Monique, Gizelle, Ashley and everyone.

Ranking the ‘Most Memorable’ Seasons Of Survivor – Updated Through Season 34

Original Source: http://www.realitytea.com/2017/05/26/ranking-memorable-seasons-survivor-updated-season-34/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=ranking-memorable-seasons-survivor-updated-season-34

Welcome to Top Reality Shows!

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

There's A New Sheriff in Town

Season 34 of Survivor, Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen-X, is a thing of the past, having ended this past Wednesday night. So where does this past season fit in to my list of most memorable?

When ranking the most memorable seasons of Survivor, “best” can mean a lot of things, so my list takes into consideration not only the “best” season but the most “memorable” seasons of all time, as they may eventually be remembered from our current vantage point. Obviously the most recent season is freshest in our minds, so the list also takes that into account. Determining factors include memorable players, situations, Tribal Councils, the impact the season had – or will have – on future seasons, and just overall where I feel the season ranks. Everyone has their opinion, so be sure to voice whether you agree or disagree with my rankings. Here goes!

#34: Fiji: The Big Brother-esque “Haves vs Have nots” was one of the rare Survivor innovations that completely fell flat. Add to it that the cast was made up of mostly unmemorable clueless players (with the exception of likable Yau-Man), and this season was clearly the least memorable of all, which still makes it better than most everything else on television! In a flat-liner Finale, we witnessed a yawn-inducing final vote, where winner Earl Cole was unanimously selected as winner.

#33: Gabon: If you like strategy and was mad that Russell Hantz didn’t win either of his two seasons, then you probably despised Survivor: Gabon. Unlikely bow-tie wearin’ Bob Crowley emerged victorious, but never have more “unworthy strategic players” gone so far in Survivor. His awesome looking fake Immunity Idol was about the only memorable thing from a very unmemorable season.

#32: Nicaragua: So it wasn’t the worst season ever, it just felt that way. It featured an unlikable batch of players, the first celebrity (Jimmy Johnson), and was topped off by unpredictable NaOnka who was memorable for all the wrong reasons. It featured some of the most head-scratching gameplay in history, and the show’s first ever double-quit, when both NaOnka and Purple Kelly left the
game on Day 28. But it will have a lasting legacy: all future versions of Survivor will institute what I’m calling the “Purple NaOnka clause” (where Survivor producers will have the power to place or remove any person from the jury who quits the game of their own free will). And for that reason alone, it will be remembered slightly higher than a few other seasons.

#31: China: Mostly remembered for the bone-headed blindside of James, who was sent home with two Immunity Idols in his possession. It also introduced us to Amanda and Courtney, but aside from that was a ho-hum season overall. Winner Todd Herzog played a very good strategic game, but Todd unfortunately doesn’t stand out all that much… until his recent troubles with alcoholism led him to being featured on a November 2013 episode of Dr. Phil. And again in 2016.

#30: Guatemala: Danni Boatwright won the final vote by flying under the radar to defeat the tough Stephanie LaGrossa, who was playing Survivor for the second time along with Bobby Jon Drinkard. Another example of someone winning by playing a better social game instead of the harder-fought game played by Stephanie. It also featured former NFL player Gary Hogeboom, who tried to keep his identity and occupation secret. Yes, this was one of the most “memorable” plot-lines in this uneventful season.

#29: Africa: I may get some flack for ranking this so low, but I remember watching this season, following Australia and Borneo, and just remembering that it was a complete dud at the time. Sure, there was Lex, and “Big” Tom, but winner Ethan (who later was diagnosed with cancer) was just so-so and not that interesting. Part of it may have been the move to Africa. This cast reportedly had it worse than any other season, and their lethargy showed on screen. However, Africa did present one of the first “twists” in Survivor history, when the tribes were switched, and also had the first tiebreaker challenge.

#28: Panama – Exile Island: Not to be confused with the Panama-based Pearl Islands season, Panama: Exile Island featured a number of memorable players (among them “villain” Danielle DiLorenzo, Cirie Fields, and cigarette-j…
