Charrisse Jackson Jordan's life went through a dramatic change last season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. When we first met Charrisse, she was proud of her nearly two-decade-long marriage to NBA player-turned-coach Eddie Jordan. But we would soon witness her relationship beginning to crumble throughout the season, culminating in the bombshell at the very end of the reunion that her husband had not spoken to her since the show began airing.
Sharing her marital issues with the world had a profound effect on Charrisse as she began the upcoming second season of RHOP. "For me, it's a different level of comfort with it, primarily because last season when I started filming, my life was in chaos, so that wasn't the best time to start filming a reality show," Charrisse recently told The Daily Dish. "But I've gotten past a lot of that, and so it's easier for me to communicate what's going on in my life, whereas last season, I probably was more reserved."
Charrisse said that seeing how unhappy she was last season of RHOP was a giant wakeup call. "As much as I didn't like myself last season, last season helped me change my perspective on where I was in my relationship. When I saw Season 1, I saw a very sad person, and I was miserable," she shared. "Watching that, I was like, 'OK, you need to get your stuff together.' And so, I just kind of changed my whole position of who I was as a person because of Season 1."
You can expect to see a completely new Charrisse this time around now that she has made peace with the state of her marriage. "So going into Season 2, I'm a different person. I'm not the same person that filmed last season," she teased. "My marriage was something that I wanted last season, and this season, I've accepted that it's not meant to be. And I'm moving on and accepting it and finding ways to get my life back."
We'll see Charrisse do just that when RHOP returns for Season 2 on Sunday, April 2 at 9/8c. Get ready for the return of the 'mac by checking out the ladies' brand-new taglines, below.
