Real Housewives of Potomac Storyline for Chris Bassett
Chris Bassett joined “The Real Housewives of Potomac” in season 3 in 2018.
During his appearance on the show, Chris Bassett admires the ‘RHONJ’ men, particularly Wendy Osefo’s and Karen Huger’s husbands, Eddie and Ray. In July of last year, Chris said to The Daily Dish, “Eddie and I have a great relationship — he’s a great guy, I love Eddie and Ray and I have been talking about going out and playing golf forever, but it just never happens.” Some of the RHONJ spouses performed at an Atlantic City comedy concert earlier in 2021 and Chris claims that the RHOP husbands are equally as hilarious as their New Jersey counterparts.
The chef went on to say that the RHOP men have such distinct personalities that it’s difficult to get them all together at the same time. “I hope we get to see some of it this year because there were a few times where we were together that rival New Jersey,” he said. “I mean, those guys have kind of set the standard.”
Furthermore, Chris is undoubtedly fed up with her wife, who has been involved in a number of heated fights with her fellow housewives. He attempted to intercede and cool Dillard down during her verbal spat with newbie Mia Thornton during one of those instances. The cast discussed the situation during the “RHOP After Show.” Gizelle Bryant stated, “He was kind of like trying to keep her in her seat or move her. It was just a little too much for me that I was uncomfortable.”
