Robyn: I Understand Why Karen Got Upset
Robyn takes a trip down memory lane about her lovebird days with Juan and weighs on the the Ashley and Karen drama.
Robyn Dixon: There is supposedly a 25 year age gap between Karen and Ashley but it really feels more like a 25 second age gap! Sheesh, can these ladies let this dumb crap go? I really can’t believe that Karen took the opportunity at Gizelle’s focus group to continue to beat Ashley over the head about Michael showing up to his own beach house. It seriously is not that big of a deal. I really think some people in this world just really like to hear themselves talk!
Bravotv.com: Would you have Juan step in to confront another husband like Ray and Michael did on the golf course – or is that, in Ashley’s words, too old fashioned?
RD: I consider myself grown enough to fight my own battles, especially dumb ones, so I would never have asked Juan to step in to confront Michael about a non-issue. I would only get Juan involved in something very serious and important where I felt threatened. Michael did not disrespect Karen at all, so there was nothing necessary for Ray to do or say to Michael. The Huger’s are acting way beyond old-fashioned – it’s more like childish and over dramatic!
Bravotv.com: What was it like to hear Juan say he remembers so much about your first date because you’re the love of his life?
RD: Awwwww! I love reminiscing about my lovebird days with Juan. We truly were so young and in love. We were inseparable for so long and had such a beautiful relationship early on so it is always great to go back in time and relive those memories. Juan and I have a bond that a lot of people just don’t understand. I will always love him and to hear him say that I am the love of his life melts my heart! I know that no matter what happens between us, we will always genuinely love each other and have each other’s back!
Bravotv.com: Did you think your question to Karen about Rayvin would cause her to be so upset? Tell us about the moment between Karen and Ashley at the party.
RD: I don’t know what it is between Karen and Ashley but they just can’t seem to get on the right page. There is definitely a love-hate relationship there! I was ready to confront Karen when Ashley said that Karen doesn’t want her daughter to hang around us. I was actually very offended that Karen felt that I was not good enough for her baby. But when Karen literally flipped it and pointed the finger at Ashley alone, I knew that night wasn’t going to end well. The big mama bear in Karen came out and almost drew Ashley’s blood! Karen definitely has a pattern of overreacting, and this incident absolutely falls into that pattern, but as a mother, I can slightly understand why Karen got so upset hearing Ashley talk about her daughter. At this point, I think Ashley just enjoys getting under Karen’s skin and loves to see her flip her wig!
