The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 6 newbie Mia Thornton doesn’t just have Wendy Osefo to worry about this season. In the latest episode, Thornton crosses the resident yin and yang of the group, Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon.
It all started after the duo sent Thronton an invitation to have libations and clear the air following Thornton’s blowup with “Zen Wen” at Ashley Darby’s spa day. Thornton and Osefo had a war of words over semantics at Osefo’s Nude Interlude dinner and comments that Thornton made about Bryant that she later backtracked on in relation to Bryant’s ongoing feud with Karen Huger.
While at a promotional photoshoot for their new podcast Unreasonably Shady, Dixon and Bryant sent Thornton a text to invite her out. The two women made it clear that Thronton should attend without her BFF, Huger.
Well, Thornton didn’t take too well to the stipulation. She responded in an unreasonably shady way herself, noting that she didn’t “have time” to talk to them unless it relates to business – and that she could have her assistant “pencil” them in. Thornton does run a chiropractic franchise.
Dixon obviously didn’t take it lightly, telling Osefo and friend to the show, Askale Davis, that she couldn’t let Thornton’s dig go. Dixon responded to her new co-star, ‘Hi, Mia. I’m quite taken aback by your rude response. Was something done to you that we are not aware of? Is this how you treat people who are trying to get to know you? What am I missing?'”
Both Dixon and Bryant believe Thornton is being “misguided” by Huger, considering Huger’s rift with Bryant. Thornton however felt that being told who she could and couldn’t bring to an outing was also rude.
Later in the episode, the women meet at a slumber party at Candiace Dillard Bassett’s old townhouse. Huger let Dixon and Bryant know that her name should have never been mentioned, though they disagree. When Thornton arrived, all hell broke loose.
“I will own the fact that maybe I was a little bit aggressive in my response, but I don’t allow people to dictate or put stipulations on what I do,” Thornton told the women.
Davis couldn’t believe the “delusions” that she was witnessing, causing Thornton to then ask Davis how many businesses she owned. Davis notes that she is in charge of “several” companies, prompting Thornton to respond “So you’re going to tell me that you have time for people who come to you and put stipulations on how you move?” Dixon also responded relatively angrily, noting, “What the f–k does businesses have to do with it?”
Bryant finally interjected to let Thornton know that her response was uncalled for and that Thornton is to “never” speak to her that way moving forward, which Thornton agreed. In her confessional, however, she threw one last shady dig: “There’s probably things that I do that a lot of women are like, you know what, they don’t really rock with me,” she admitted. “It’s something that I’m going to be working on, so I’m just gonna apologize for making you feel that way, honey.”
Dillard Bassett was over the whole ordeal, interjecting to get the slumber party started with a game of Prosecco pong.
Luckily, things shifted to a positive note with a game about nothing other than sex, with Thornton admitting she and her husband have had a threesome. Way to end the night.
