Bravotv.com: What did you really think of the Casino Royale night – and those singers?
Robyn Dixon: Oh Casino Royale! What high expectations I had for you! The way Katie was bragging last season about how great of a fundraiser she is really had me expecting something over the top and fabulous. Unfortunately, Casino Royale didn’t deliver any of that. But had Katie not set such high expectations, I would have considered it an average event. The most exciting part of the whole night was the quite entertaining and perplexing performance!
Bravotv.com: Do you still talk to Katie? What were you thinking when she said she wanted to auction Juan off for a date?
RD: Katie and I don’t talk at all. I have reached out to her to wish her well to no reply. So of course, when she tells me she wants to auction Juan off for a date, I think she has totally lost her mind! That’s a pretty big request from somebody who couldn't care less about me! No thank you, Katie, auction off your own man!
Bravotv.com: Tell us about meeting Monique and that barre class. Did you think it would be so hard? Does she still humble brag?
RD: There is a first for everything and that barre class with Monique was the first time I topped a workout off with a glass of champagne – delivered by the assistant!!! I’m a pretty strong woman so I thought that class was going to be a breeze. But holy moly, my butt cheeks were on fire and muscles that I didn’t know I had were screaming bloody murder! Overall I enjoyed the class and enjoyed getting to know Monique. She was definitely very long-winded that day and enjoyed talking about herself and all that she has and does but I don’t think she has any bad intentions. She just needs to figure out how to cut her soliloquies short when people begin to nod off!
Bravotv.com: Did you think when you spoke with Karen that she would bring up your conversation to Gizelle?
RD: When Karen invited me to her house to try to bring resolution to the Charrisse and Gizelle situation, I immediately thought twice about it because I didn’t think Karen needed to insert herself into their business anyway. But I still went because I believed she was coming from a good place and really wanted to see the ladies make up. Karen has had her fair share of confrontation amongst the ladies, so I thought maybe she had grown from her past experiences and was sincere in her intentions. I was honest and open with Karen about what I thought about the situation. On top of that, EVERYTHING I said to Karen had already been said to Gizelle. In no way did I think I was walking into a complete setup!
Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Karen brought up your conversation with her at tea? What did you think of Gizelle’s reaction?
RD: My immediate reaction when Karen brought up our conversation at high tea was “Oh, hell no, this woman is straight throwing me under the bus!” There was absolutely no reason for Karen to bring up what we discussed and spin it as if I was betraying my friends. I’m grown and mature enough to have my own opinion and to give my friends honest feedback on things that they do and say. Seemingly, Karen does not understand this concept, despite her mature age. Karen just looked like a messy drama starter who needs attention. I appreciate Gizelle’s want to discuss this situation in private; that is how a real woman handles confrontation.
