Season 8 of The Real Housewives of Potomac wrapped up on March 24, concluding what seemed like one of the toughest periods for the DMV-based ladies.

In addition to the drama, we followed the health journeys of Candiace Dillard Bassett, Karen Huger, and newcomer Nneka Ihim. Plus, Dr. Wendy Osefo started a talk show, and Gizelle Bryant showed her preparation for sending her daughter Grace off to college.

Now that Season 8 of RHOP is over, we’re sharing details on where the ladies stand, as well as new life updates since the cameras stopped filming.

In the final moments of the finale, it was revealed that cameras picked back up three months after they initially commenced to get the aftermath of Mia and Gordon’s separation.

During a confessional interview, Mia opened up about the life adjustments and her new relationship. “This life that I’m living is not really the life that God is intending for me,” she said. “Like, I need to follow my heart, and whatever happens, happens.”

The RHOP cast teases the Season 8 reunion

The ladies will reunite for one last sit-down with Andy Cohen for a three-part reunion to relive all the drama from the season.

Back in February, Candiace shared her “hopes” of reconciling her friendship with Robyn at the reunion during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.

When Ashley appeared on the February 5 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she shed light on her involvement in Wendy and Nenka's disagreement, saying, "You will see at the reunion that there is much more to the situation.”

The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 8 reunion kicks off with Part 1 on Sunday, March 31, on Bravo at 8/7c.
