I had the opportunity to attend a private viewing party hosted by Jacqueline Blake while Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Potomac was airing, and this newbie had a lot to say about what happened this season, and where her friendships stand today.
She opened up about joining the show as a friend-of through full-time Housewife Mia Thornton, and says “I would say that season 7 had its ups and downs, everybody brought it, and it was a true testimony of who had my corner and who did not.” I obviously wanted to know more and I asked who exactly she was talking about that didn’t have her back. Blake said “I think everybody knows that Mia is not in my corner right now.” This comes after Blake and Thornton went blow for blow on Instagram which led fans know the two “best friends ”were officially done for. Blake wrote on her Instagram “this season was a eyeopener and true testimony of who had my best interest at heart.” she continued “through every step of this process i prayed for God to use me and allow me to use this platform to uplift, help, and empower.”
Thornton did not like what she was seeing and decided to comment back “She loves men with wives, while trying too hard to be a ‘Housewife’ yet is only qualified to be a ‘friend’, if she would focus on herself maybe someone would want to wife her wanna be disloyal a[ss].”
As season 7 of RHOP continues to air at its very early stages, the “best friend” due is still going strong, however after this social media dispute and the constant back and forth in the press, fans are in for even more drama as the season progresses.
