The Real Housewives of Potomac premiere pushed back because of the coronavirus

The coronavirus has struck again. This time, COVID-19 has caused a hiccup with the popular Bravo reality show The Real Housewives of Potomac, which was scheduled to premiere Sunday.

“Bravo has pushed back our premiere date until sometime in the summer,” cast member Robyn Dixon confirmed. “We’re very disappointed about it. But it is for a good reason.”

Filming wrapped in December for its fifth season.

“It’s not because we don’t have the content,” she said. “It’s because Bravo doesn’t have any other shows filming," as a safety measure to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Dixon explained that Bravo pushed back the Potomac franchise so that they would have at least one new franchise show come Fall.

Once the season airs, Dixon promises plenty of entertainment and a few surprises.

Dixon said that she will continue to reconcile her relationship with her ex-husband, former Maryland Terps basketball star and Coppin State coach Juan Dixon.

“There is a lot of drama in it and there is a lot of great stuff that happened throughout the season,” Dixon said. “We’re just excited about the season and we appreciate the support.”

The show also stars Gizelle Bryant, the ex-wife of former Baltimore pastor Jamal Bryant and arguably the face of the show. Gizelle also recently rekindled her relationship with Jamal.

The women of Potomac will welcome a new cast member, Wendy Osefo, an assistant professor in the Doctor of Education program at the Johns Hopkins School of Education. She’s also a political analyst, and entrepreneur.
