The ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ Ladies Are Skeptical of Mia Thornton’s Story

Mia Thornton is starting her first season on RHOP with a bang.

Real Housewives of Potomac” newbie Mia Thornton caused some eyebrows to raise thanks to the previous episode. While she was at Karen Huger’s love event, she said that she and her husband Gordon Thornton met at a strip club. But she was a bartender at the time.

Candiace Dillard and Ashley Darby questioned this in their green screen interviews. Both said that they believe Mia used to be a stripper and she’s not quite ready to tell the whole truth.

Interestingly enough, Mia is already not on the best terms with Wendy Osefo. Wendy has been questioning Mia’s loyalty to Karen and she thinks Mia’s choice to ask Gizelle Bryant for her number was shady since it was Karen who brought her into the group.

So they exchanged shade on social media and Wendy said that everyone knows that Mia is a stripper. And this led to Mia opening up about her past on Instagram.

On the upcoming episode, Mia has more to say about it. But she only has the other women even more skeptical.

    Mia should just be honest. NeNe stripped before housewives and it wasn’t a big deal.

      Erika Jayne and Danielle Staub too. So I don’t know why Mia is acting afraid to be straight forward and stop speaking in circles.

    I don’t blame her, I wouldn’t tell no one about me the first time meeting them neither. You’re not getting my whole life story all at one time. Gizelle hollering she was an escort girl, maybe you should be one, maybe you’ll find a man that way

    Candiace and that reckless mouth of hers is nonstop. She stays talking sh-t about people but then can’t understand why people don’t like her a-s like that.

      Exactly. Dang did she really have to call Mia’s husband a geezer? He doesn’t even know her like that and Candiace would act a fool if anyone said anything about Chris. Totally unnecessary.

    All Mia is doing is giving these women material to drag her with eventually.

    Yeah, Candiace could have made her point without disrespecting Mia’s husband and being ageist. She doesn’t remember these things when she complains about not being a fan favorite and blaming it on colorism. But her mouth is the worst and unprovoked at times. With Mia, it’s like she’s being transparent but not transparent enough at the same time and you can catch her in lies already. So it will be interesting to see how things play out for her this season. Ashley also needs to stop acting like she’s been to every strip club in existence. Every club isn’t the same. Karen is being cool about this but I’m sure she’d drag Gizelle if it was Gizelle with a stripper past.

      What Mia does is her business, with Wendy and Candiace I sense some jealousy of Mia, when they were at Karen home when they were in the group and they asked if they were to choose another housewife to date, who would it be, and Wendy husband Eddie wrote down Mia’s name, Wendy made him erase it, so I’m sure Wendys dislike for Mia has intensified.

    This show is fake. My niece interns for this show and she says she was surprised. She said at that dinner everything was going well and the ladies were talking about their kids and how Covid-19 has affected them. So one producer yells cut and say we can’t used this. Come on ladies people watch this for drama. The producer then tells Giselle and a Karen to fight but both ladies state that they aren’t about to get physical or pretend to. The producer then say okay well Giselle talk about Karen marriage, her lies or something and he then tells Karen to talk about Giselle not having a man, her lies and he names a few things to choose from. My niece says he then tell the other ladies to chime in but don’t actually try to stop them. They all agree and my niece say they rehearsed and the producer is happy with the new scene. That was the first episode. They are do workers doing a acting job and of course not all co workers get along but this is fake. My niece did say the ladies did say why on the black shows when a woman gets a divorce are break up with a man that the cast mates are told to say she can’t keep a man but the white woman on these shows do the same thing and their cast mates are supportive and say he wasn’t worth your time. That one is 100 percent true, on the black shows woman act as if having a man is everything and if you don’t then something is wrong with you. The white women do the same but the support not trash one another like blacks do.

      When Monique dragged Candiace were they faking it, I do think some of it is fake, but I believe some of it is real.

    The woman brought up Housewives of New York and I wonder why those women aren’t label as can’t keep a man when they have been divorced or cheated on or they just date a lot of men. Only black women get that label. Not every man is worth keeping and stop blaming black women. We disrespect ourselves. I have been watching the other shows with white cast and they don’t go as low as the black cast actors. I know it’s acting but have boundaries because they do.

    I will say 85 percent is fake. Yes, a storyline can be real but they add and drag unnecessary things into it. How can you re-enact a scene that happen four months ago. It’s impossible. One can never have the same emotional feeling after four months. Everyone see that the breaking news is happen but the woman act as if it’s taking place in real time. Come on a fool can see the bad acting. Monique didn’t beat Candice. The trash bag just grab her hair. Stop acting as if she actually hit her. Physical contact should never happen. Next season people characters will change.
