But before we see what the ladies are up to now, let's take a trip down memory lane to learn where they all went to college. Keep scrolling to see where each of the Potomac 'Wives earned their degree — and which one "refused" hers.

Gizelle Bryant

The philanthropist and entrepreneur earned her educational stripes at Hampton University. While in school, the EveryHue Beauty founder was a member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority. And as evidenced by the photo below, she still has big love for her AKA sisters. 

Karen Huger

On RHOP, Karen has shared that she eschewed getting a college degree in order to pursue entrepreneurial ventures. Her kids, however, both chose to go school. Daughter Rayvin is in her fourth year at Penn State University, while Karen's son Brandon graduated from Morehouse College at Georgia University.

Ashley Darby

Ashley attended the University of Maryland, but acing tests wasn't her only gig. The yoga enthusiast bartended on the side, and it was at that bar where Ashley was scouted for the Miss District of Columbia pageant. She went on to take the crown in 2011.

Robyn Dixon

Robyn is another University of Maryland grad! Now a mom and an event producer, the Baltimore native graduated in 2000 with a degree in business marketing. 

Monique Samuels

The salutatorian of her high school class, Monique attended Duquesne University on a full academic scholarship. After a few semesters there, she realized that music was her true passion. So, she packed her bags and headed to D.C. to pursue her dreams, only to find love with a certain handsome athlete she'd go on to marry.

Candiace Dillard

A graduate of Howard University, Candiace knows her way around the world of politics. During Barack Obama's presidency, she worked in the White House Offices of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs. She also served as a staffer for Obama's 2012 re-election campaign. And just like Ashley, Candiace is a pro in the pageant world: She was named Miss United States in 2013!
