Charrisse Jackson Jordan may be among the who's who of Potomac society, but her daughter, Skylar, rolls with an even more fabulous crowd, according to her mom — if you can believe that. "Skylar has more connections than I do," Charrisse spilled to The Daily Dish behind-the-scenes of The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion. "She has a rolodex; I don't have one."
So how star-studded is that rolodex, you might ask? Well, it includes a former First Daughter, for one. Skylar is friends with Sasha Obama. She was even spotted at her Sweet 16 earlier this month. "Her and Sasha are friends. Well, they have a lot of mutual friends as well. They hang out, spend time together," Charrisse said. "Very nice girl. Beautiful girl at that. She could be a model, she's so beautiful."
When you live so close to Washington, D.C., you're bound to run into more offspring of the nation's political elite. "[Skylar] tried out for this lacrosse team and, oh, Joe Biden's granddaughter, I think, or somebody was on the team," the RHOP mom shared. "And I was like, 'Oh, really? That's who that was?'"
Skylar has long been hanging around some high-profile people, thanks to dad Eddie Jordan's career as an NBA and, later, college basketball coach, so this kind of star power doesn't really faze the RHOP teen. "Coming from a sports industry, we've always saw celebrities and things of that nature. She grew up always being around celebrity-like people, so they're just normal people to her," Charrisse explained. "So she doesn't get into it like crazy."
And Skylar has managed to remain down-to-earth through it all. "She's very grounded. Very grounded. Great girl," Charrisse gushed about her daughter. "I wish I could be half of her. Get rid of Sha-Sha and more Skylar."
