Get your boxing gloves and champagne ready, because a new group of real housewives is about to serve up the drama. Bravo’s latest installment, The Real Housewives of Potomac, premiering Sunday, will dive into the land of Potomac, Maryland, the state’s “best-kept secret” of “rolling hills, gated mansions and sophisticated prep schools” right by the capitol of the good ol’ USA. Sounds luxurious, but we all know reality TV doesn’t care much about where you’re from or what you do–but the company you keep. Do the ladies of Potomac know what they’re in for?
In case they’re not prepared for the chaos, we’re here to give advice from a show vet straight out of the concrete jungle. RHONY star Heather Thomson has some words of wisdom for the fresh batch, and we suggest they listen up. Here’s what Heather has to say to the newest ladies about surviving the reality series and making the most of the drama:
“My advice to the newest housewives cast is pretty simple. First and foremost, use the opportunity/platform to help bring awareness to something meaningful in your life. Maybe it’s a charity, or a cause or an amazing business… use it to help others, and bring a positive light to doing things powerful, engaging and impactful. And, don’t take yourself or others too seriously; over-reacting and bad decisions can always come back and haunt you, (Re-runs!), but don’t ever shy away from something you believe in because the cameras are there. Personally, I quickly realized what an exceptional and rare opportunity the show was going to be for me to speak about my business, Yummie by Heather Thomson, and my brand message of uplifting women and breaking down barriers. The Real Housewives allowed me to bring awareness to charitable causes that are dear to me. Authenticity resonates with the viewers as they watch your journey – they’re savvy watchers and they know when you’re a phony.”
Taking notes, ladies?
Oh, and one last thing from Heather:
Yes, good luck indeed.
