‘Potomac’ is a must-see reunion

Part 3 of The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion airs this weekend on Bravo, and fans will finally get a taste of what they’ve been waiting months for: Nicki Minaj. The sixth season of RHOP contained plenty for fans of housewives to love, filled with drama, laughs, and more, theGrio previously reported.

Minaj happens to be a huge fan of this iteration of the franchise, motivating her to shoot her shot to host the reunion earlier this year. While Andy Cohen still hosted the bulk of it, Minaj is set to host the final hour, appearing at the tail end of this week’s third installment.

In the exciting preview, the women seem to spend the first half of the episode continuing to rehash the season, with the husbands (Ray Huger, Chris Bassett and more) joining their wives on the stage. Later, Cohen heads to Minaj’s dressing room, where Minaj turns around in her makeup chair and says, “Hi Andy!”

Shaunie O’Neal is engaged

Next up is some exciting news in the Basketball Wives world! In an official statement to People Magazine, Shaunie O’Neal announced her engagement to Pastor Keion Henderson. She shared with the outlet, “This was one of the most magical and special days of my life, being someone that had never officially been proposed to — like no down on one knee and asked ‘will you marry me’ moment….and honestly I’m the person that thought I would never in my lifetime experience a love like this. Everything about that night was incredibly amazing.”

O’Neal shares four children with her ex-husband, Shaquille O’Neal, to whom she was married from 2002 to 2011. Henderson has a daughter from a previous marriage, and he told the outlet, “I’ve never been more loved than I am right now.”

Porsha has some thoughts on ‘RHUGT’

The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, which sees Cynthia Bailey, Kenya MooreKyle Richards, Teresa Giudice, Melissa GorgaLuann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer on an epic housewives vacation, premiered on Peacock a few days early, theGrio previously reported. With four episodes out, fans can’t get enough of the new crossover series 15 years in the making.

While on Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen, Cohen had the women play a game where they picked who they thought were “all stars” in the franchise. One name that came up: Porsha Williams, who recently left The Real Housewives of Atlanta and had frequent tension with Moore. When asked if Williams was an all-star, only her old co-star Bailey and Richards from Beverly Hills agreed she was.

Williams clearly caught wind of this, tweeting some tea that her and Gizelle Bryant (RHOP) were approached first for RHUGT.
