Gizelle definitely puts the “G” in OG! This cast member has been there since the very beginning. She’s someone who always knows how to collect receipts to call out anyone and everyone.

Ashley is another person who fans have known since season 1. Like Gizelle, Ashley always finds her way to the center of the drama, as she is often the one coming with the tea.

Candiace Dillard-Bassett is a multi-talented housewife. She can sing, dance, and read someone for filth! She’s also one of those people who keeps us entertained not just because of her clapbacks but also because of her hilarious sayings that definitely deserve to be on a T-shirt. Maybe this season we’ll see more of her career? Or perhaps we’ll learn a bit more about where she is on her baby-making journey?

It’s safe to say Robyn Dixon is someone who definitely grew with the show. She went from someone who resided in the background to someone who is stealing the spotlight in the upcoming season.

The Grand Dame can never be replaced, which is why she’s still standing strong despite being on for all eight seasons. She’s showing these ladies that she’s standing on business and if they can’t take her at her very best, they certainly don’t deserve her at her legendary status. How will Karen Huger serve this season? And who will come at her neck this time?
Hometown: Beloit, Wisconsin
First Season: 8
Nneka Ihim is our newcomer in season 8. While we don’t know too much about Nneka just yet, we do know that she is a friend of Wendy Osefo, meaning she’ll know how to read a housewife if she needs to. However, everyone’s wondering if Nneka will last amongst this group of ladies? Or will she get the boot after one season?
Age: 39 (May 21, 1984)
Hometown: Durham, North Carolina
First Season: 5
Wendy Osefo has proven she has what it takes to stay on this show for a very long time. No matter who she’s in a fight with, she’s come out on top, proving she’s not one to just lay down and take defeat. If only she kept that same energy for when it came to overworking herself, especially since reading someone is nothing if you’re too sick to be there in person!
Has Wendy learned how to balance work and life? Or will she have to learn yet another valuable lesson about taking care of one’s health?
Age: 38 (November 25, 1984)

Mia Thornton is probably going to have one of the most stressful seasons. She’s going through a sticky situation with her husband, Gordon, and we fear the two may not make it out together. She’s also going through some issues with her family and business, two things that not many can afford to have messed up.
How will Mia make it through her thorny season? What roses will she find?
Now that you know all about who you can expect to see, it’s time to check out the juicy teaser of what’s to come. Here’s the official trailer for The Real Housewives of Potomac season 8!
