Robyn Dishes on Juan's Decision to Be at the Reunion

For those of you who are surprised that Juan Dixon attended The Real Housewives of Potomac season 2 reunion, it turns out it wasn't exactly a walk in the park to get him there. After cheating allegations, that hot mic moment when he confessed to needing more in his relationship and finding out Robyn Dixon was tasked with dating other men, it hasn't been the easiest season for the NBA superstar. When caught up with Robyn Dixon behind the scenes at the reunion she revealed, "It took a lot, a lot, a lot of nudging. He doesn't love reality TV and the whole process. It took a lot of convincing for him to be comfortable."

What was Juan so nervous about? Was it having all eyes on him on the Reunion stage? "I don't think so," said Robyn. "He's been an athlete on such a high level for so many years, so being on a stage where you have to perform, he's kinda used to that." But he did have one hesitation. Robyn said her ex "didn't want to be arguing with some ladies. That was his big thing, he didn't want to argue with people." Too bad he's going to be at a Real Housewives reunion...

So what made Juan suit up - literally - and sit behind those couches? To show his support for Robyn. 

"He wanted to support so he'll be here...I think when you watch the show it doesn't look like he and I on the same page, but we've been on the same page for years, so I think it will be good for him to express that."
