RHOP Preview: Mia Threatens Karen With New Cheating Rumor

Must read

‘RHOP’ Star Candiace Dillard Bassett Reveals Dream Musical Collab

Mia Thornton continues to be a thorn in Karen Huger‘s side.

In E! News’ exclusive sneak peek at the Bravo series’ Feb. 25 episode, The Real Housewives of Potomac stars go head-to-head in a battle over each other’s cheating rumors.

The drama kicks off when Gizelle Bryant grills Karen over an accusation the Grande Dame made about Mia earlier this season.

“So, at Nneka‘s house, you told Mia that she was screwing a rapper and screwing a married man,” Gizelle says in the preview. “In years past, if I had said that, you would be going on a rampage of, ‘Giselle’s trying to destroy families. Giselle’s trying to not respect marriages. Giselle, Giselle, Giselle.'”

In Karen’s defense, she’s also been accused by her costars of cheating on husband Ray Huger in years past.

“You all have come after my marriage time after time again,” she retorts. “I am done turning the other cheek because you guys are so f–king disrespectful at all times to my marriage and to me. And, Mia, I brought you in this group.”

But when Mia—married to Gordon Thornton—asks, “Why would you be disrespectful to my marriage if you don’t want me to be disrespectful to yours?” Karen reasons, “I brought it to you in your face what I had heard about you,” as opposed to spreading it behind her back.

Cut to a flashback of Mia bringing the gossip she heard about Karen straight to Karen’s face.

“Someone is saying that you were dating his best friend,” Mia alleges during a previous season eight episode. “You guys went to Vegas, you had sex with him in the bathroom.”

But when Karen pleads for sympathy from her costar during the heated exchange, Mia doubles down—and makes a bombshell threat.

“Which is why I haven’t shared the true story,” Mia fires back, seemingly teasing plans to reveal more dirty details about the incident allegedly involving Karen in Las Vegas. “Want to try it?”

The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on Bravo.

Teresa vs. the Gorgas, The Real Housewives of New Jersey

After feuding RHONJ‘s entire 13th season, Teresa Giudice declared she was done with brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorgaforever.

Melissa and Teresa exchanged endless jabs and the fighting got so bad at one point, Andy Cohen reprimanded the co-stars. “Stop!” he yelled. “I swear to god, you guys are like f–king kindergarteners. It’s crazy, you don’t grow!”

The reunion ended with Joe sharing parting words after Teresa made it clear she wanted him out of her life. “You know what the best thing to do is?” he proposed. “Forget about me, I will forget about you. That’s it. Do your thing, leave me alone, leave everybody alone, live your f–king lives.”

Kathy Hilton vs. Lisa Rinna, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Kathy Hilton and Lisa Rinna came face to face for the first time since the dramatic fallout of Kathy’s alleged Aspen “meltdown” during RHOBH‘s season 12 reunion in 2022. Though Kathy apologized to sister Kyle Richards for allegedly bad-mouthing her, Kathy and Lisa had yet to settle their bitter feud and the tension was palpable through the TV screen.

Kathy denied all of the name-calling Lisa accused her of—which included insults like “stupid,” “useless” and “pieces of s–t.”

Kathy and Lisa’s heated confrontation hit a climax when Kathy accused Lisa of trying to make her look bad to save her job on the show.”You did it on camera because you’re contract was coming up and you needed some drama because you fight with everybody,” Kathy claimed. “You drove Lisa Vanderpump off the show, what you did to my sister [Kim Richards], you’ve had problems with everybody. With Camille Grammer, I mean the list can go on and on. And then saying you’ve been bullied? You are the biggest bully in Hollywood and everyone knows it. You’re mean and you don’t tell the truth.”

Lisa left the series after the showdown.

Kelly vs. Braunwyn, The Real Housewives of Orange County

RHOC‘s season 15 reunion was heated with many co-stars coming after Braunwyn Windham-Burke. But it was Kelly Dodd‘s explosive claims that Braunwyn is a “fake alcoholic” and only using her sobriety for a “storyline” that shocked fans and Andy Cohen alike.

“[Do you know] how dangerous this is to everyone out there in recovery right now?” Braunwyn fired back at Kelly. “You are disgusting. This is vile even for you.”

Bunnygate The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Kim Richards and Lisa Rinna‘s long-standing feud has delivered a number of iconic RHOBH moments, including Bunnygate. As uncomfortable as it was to watch, Bunnygate will forever have a place in the Real Housewives reunion hall of fame.

It all started during RHOBH season seven, when Lisa Rinna bought Kim Richards’ newborn grandson a stuffed bunny as a peace offering. Then, when it came time for the reunion, Kim revealed that she couldn’t accept the gift, let alone gift it to her grandson because “it didn’t feel like it had good energy.”

The result? A lone tear falling down Rinna’s face before she stormed off set.

“That’s My Opinion!” The Real Housewives of Orange County

Brooks Ayers was at the center of many RHOC fights, including this one between Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson in season nine. Tamra starts out calm, defending her position, but as per usual, things escalated, and it ended with Vicki and Tamra shouting at each other until Tamra infamously shouted, “Because that’s my opinion!”

Let’s Get Physical, The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore have had their fair share of fights on RHOA, but the reunion where things got physical is another level. Kenya pulled out a megaphone and that seemed to be the last straw for Porsha, who then got in Kenya’s face and pulled her to the ground by her hair while Andy Cohen shouted, “No, no, now!”

Bravo

Everyone vs. Michael Darby, The Real Housewives of Potomac

Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Robyn Dixon, Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett all used the RHOP season four reunion to grill Ashley Darby‘s husband about the sexual assault charges brought against him (that were later dismissed), but Michael Darby just repeatedly shut them down.

Bravo

Star of the Show, The Real Housewives of Dallas

LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra Simmons found themselves arguing about perhaps the most amusing thing ever at the season three RHOD reunion: who the star of the show is. 

More specifically, LeeAnne saw herself as the reason the franchise still existed, while D’Andra said the show wouldn’t have started in the first place had it not been for her.

“Jesus Jugs,” The Real Housewives of Orange County

Tamra Judge doesn’t back down, especially at reunions. The RHOC cast member is quick to scream louder than anyone to make her point heard, and she even throws in insults to boot. Never forget her back and forth with Alexis Bellino over her behavior. “You are psychotic Jesus Jugs!” Tamra shouts.

Bravo

What Danielle Did, The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Travel with us back to a time of innocence, back to 2009 when RHONJ season one reunion aired.

What did she do? We’ve got you covered.

During the third and final RHOM reunion, the ladies got into it about Joanna Krupa‘s sex life, then Adriana De Moura said maybe Romain was gay.

Briana vs. Brooks, The Real Housewives of Orange County

Bravo

Danielle vs. Teresa, The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Teresa Giudice can have quite the temper on RHONJ. That was evident in the season two reunion where she jumped off the couch and lunged after Danielle Staub. Andy Cohen got in her way and Teresa shoved him. This reunion also gave birth to a very meme’d moment, Danielle saying and then Teresa repeating, “One at a time!” These days the ladies are as thick as thieves.

Family feuds are nothing new to RHONJ, but they went to the next level with Teresa Giudice and her cousins Rosie Pierri and Kathy Wakile. Teresa and Kathy got into it over fathers.

The Sisters Richards, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Kim Richards and Kyle Richards have a complicated relationship, one that viewers have followed on screen for some time. During the season five reunion, which was pretty dramatic for just about everyone, Kyle and Kim got into it yet again, this time over Kim’s dog biting Kyle’s daughter, which started the feud. The sisters went back and forth the whole reunion, with Kim screaming, “You’re horrible! This is why I don’t like her!” and Kyle yelling, “You’re so f–king mean!” at various points of the reunion.

“Blubber,” The Real Housewives of New Jersey

The RHONJ season four reunion was one of the record books in terms of fights. Who can forget Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo‘s split screen action that featured Teresa saying, “Look at yourself, you have three rolls: Blubber, blubber and blubber” to Caroline in a battle over looks.

Stonewall Singer, The Real Housewives of New York City

Back in season seven of RHONY, Andy Cohen tried to get Ramona Singer to open up about her marriage problems with Mario Singer. She didn’t budge, and things got downright tense between the reality star and host. Then Luann de Lesseps entered the fray and the conversation got even more intense when she brought up Ramona’s past comments about her marriage.

“Lie-ann,” The Real Housewives of New York City

Bethenny Frankel has sparred with just about everyone at a RHONY reunion. Back in season eight she and Luann de Lesseps went at it in a particularly nasty fight over whether or not Bethenny was dating a married man after Luann’s tryst in Turks and Caicos.

Battle of the Texts, The Real Housewives of New York City

Season 10 of RHONY was a bad one for Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill‘s friendship, and the reunion was even worse.

There, the two went back and forth a number of times, but there’s no forgetting when both ladies ripped out their phones in an attempt to discredit the other. 

Bethenny and Carole’s debate centered on a text message from Brian in the Red Scarf Speed Dating Guy (his actual name in Bethenny’s phone), and things get so heated at one point that B jumps up and yells, “Booyah b-tch!”

Kim vs. NeNe: Round 1, The Real Housewives of Atlanta

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak-Biermann have had more ups and downs than we can count. The two went at it from the start during the RHOA season one reunion over what Big Papa said about NeNe and a season’s worth of comments. Things escalated quickly and NeNe coined, “Close your legs to married men!”

Bravo

Kim’s Last Stand, The Real Housewives of Atlanta

After a season-long fight, things finally came to a head for Kim Zolciak-Biermann and NeNe Leakes at the RHOA season 10 reunion. Not only did Kim face-off with NeNe, but pretty much every other cast member joined the fray over Kim and her comments that were perceived as racist. At the end of the reunion, Andy Cohen confronted a teary Kim and the two had it out in the bathroom.

Bravo

“The Lies!” The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks had one epic season nine reunion battle during season nine. Kandi was finally able to call Phaedra out on “the lies” she was spreading all season and they were some vicious lies, including allegations of drugging and rape.

Season 5, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Season five of RHOBH had so much juicy drama, so of course the reunion did too. Brandi Glanville sparred with both Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump. Kim Richards and Lisa R. rehashed all sorts of drama and that was just the tip of the iceberg.

Bravo

Tweet Receipts, The Real Housewives of Potomac
