Mia Thornton and Wendy Osefo’s fallout caused a stir on social media.
“Real Housewives of Potomac” star Wendy Osefo‘s drama with Mia Thornton had a lot of fans talking on social media. As we reported, the two women clashed during a cast trip to Miami. Peter Thomas told Mia that his business deal with Wendy was held up by her. At the time, he and Mia were friends. He also had a friendship with Mia’s husband Gordon Thornton.
Wendy wanted to open a Nigerian lounge with Peter. However, she didn’t move forward. So Peter thought it was rude for Wendy to show up in Miami without planning to check in with him. Wendy said this was ridiculous. And she certainly didn’t appreciate Mia calling her out about the failed business deal in front of the group.
Eventually, words were exchanged. The night ended after Mia threw a drink at Wendy and hit her with a purse.
Fans hopped on social media with strong opinions. Some called out Mia for her actions. They said she had no right to make things physical. This is a take that Candiace Dillard Bassett and Ashley Darby expressed. Interestingly enough, Robyn Dixon and Gizelle Bryant said Wendy antagonized Mia. So they didn’t believe there was a need to have much empathy for Wendy.
Wendy Osefo’s friend may be joining the show.
The situation resulted in many conversations about colorism and the cast dynamics. Some fans even said that they feel as if Wendy doesn’t really have a solid ally on the cast.
Months ago, it was rumored that another Nigerian housewife, Nneka Ihim, had been added to the “Real Housewives of Potomac” cast. However, it was also confirmed in a recent social media video that Wendy and Nneka aren’t getting along while filming the upcoming season.
Well, TV Deets is now reporting that Wendy may officially be bringing a friend to the group. Keiana Stewart has been filming scenes for the new season since April. Keiana is the owner of K. Stewart Beauty & Wellness. Her business operates out of Baltimore. And so far, Keiana is being tested for an official friend role. While Keiana’s status with all the cast members is unknown, she did recently attend one of Candiace’s recent performances. So she’s likely on good terms with Candiace as well.
