RHOP (Winning This Season) & RHOA (How To Fix Past "Off" Season)!

DJ Richie Skye steps Behind The Rope. There is no one more connected in the DMV than Mr. Skye and we could not think of anyone better to help break down all that is going on this season on The Real Housewives of Potomac than Richie Skye. That chat began a few weeks back where we discussed how all our fav ladies are doing this season - Gizelle, Karen, Ashley, Candiace, Robyn, Wendy and newbie Mia. Today we continue that chat and predict what will happen as the season moves on. The convo then turns to RHOA breaking down the “off season” they just had. We discuss what went wrong with our fav Peach Holder’s this past season, reveal who our MVP was, suggest ways to fix the ATL, chat about who should go and predict who will be “let go” out of Kenya, Porsha, Kandi, Drew and Cynthia. Of course we cannot let our Southern gals go without a job and discuss career alternatives for those we feel are on their way out. On the topic of off seasons, we cannot help but think RHONY - Richie knows Bershan IRL - discussing whether this season is as bad, and the situation is as dire as all the public outcry and headlines make it seem. Richie sheds light on what he likes and does not like up here in the Big Apple weighing in on who should go, stay and be brought back from the past - the answers not at all what you would expect. Somehow our sit down about the current RHOP season has led us to RHOA and RHONY but that is what happens when DJ Richie Skye (host of “Reality Talk” on Youtube & “Unfiltered” on Podcast One) stops by. We could have kept talking, but need to leave you with something to look forward to. Until next time, Mr. Skye!!
