Before the launch of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City blessed us during the 2020 pandemic season, there hadn’t been a new franchise since Potomac and Dallas both premiered in 2016. Over the past five seasons, The Real Housewives of Potomac cast has served up plenty of drama, weddings, babies, and even multiple court cases. At the end of an explosive Season Five, things culminated with a proposal for Robyn Dixon.
RHOP is for sure one of the rawest Housewives franchises and you can always count on the women to come from the heart and take no bullshit. The Fifth Season of the show gave more insight into the lives of the single mom Housewives on the show, Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon. Gizelle navigates the delicate dance of dating her ex-husband and father of her children, Jamal Bryant, while her daughters struggle to accept their new family dynamic. Robyn and her ex, Juan Dixon, house hunt while Robyn works on releasing some of the resentment she has from parenting solo while Juan was an NBA player.
The Housewives have left an undeniable mark on pop culture and it’s inspiring to see single mom stories be apart of that conversation. Below, we’ve rounded up all the single moms to ever grace the Potomac universe.
Gizelle and her ex-husband, Pastor Jamal Bryant, married in 2002 before divorcing in 2009. Together they co-parent daughter Grace and twin daughters Angel and Adore. They currently are dating long distance.
Robyn and Juan Dixon‘s relationship has evolved and gone through multiple phases while on RHOP, but they always prioritized their children. The pair married in 2005 and had two sons, Corey and Carter, before divorcing in 2012. After years of being divorced but continuing to live together, the pair got engaged in 2019.
Katie Rost was an OG housewife on the show in Season 1 before returning as a friend in Seasons 4 and 5. She was married to James Orsini from 2011 to 2016, and the pair separated during her third pregnancy. Together they have three children, James, Renee, and Kathryn.
