Andy Cohen GOES AFTER Robyn Dixon For Hiding Juan’s Cheating
Andy Cohen put Real Housewives of Potomac star, Robyn Dixon, on blast during a Sunday appearance on Watch What Happens Live, for failing to come clean about her now-husband, Juan Dixon’s relationship with another woman.
Andy called out Robyn only days after she fessed up to knowing about Juan’s relationship with another woman, which took place during the pandemic. The Bravo boss took issue with Robyn shutting down on the show only to later spill the tea on her podcast.
“You withhold the truth on the reality show that you’re on but then you sell it behind a paywall,” Andy told Robyn, Sunday night.
Robyn replied — “Well I talked about it on the free podcast and I didn’t withhold.”
Robyn claimed that she only spoke out about the betrayal because the other woman produced receipts, via a blog.
“This information was given like last week or the week before on a blog,” she stated. “She was telling lies and I felt I needed to correct the lies.”
The woman produced a receipt that proved that Juan had paid for a hotel room — but Robyn insisted that the payment did not incriminate her then-fiancé.
Robyn explained — “She lives in Canada. Canada was clearly on a strict lockdown during the pandemics so the hotel receipt comes into play because for whatever reason, she decided that she wanted to fly to Maryland. And she had told Juan that she was dating a Baltimore Ravens player. So she’s telling him she’s flying to Maryland and he’s like ‘Okay whatever.’ But somewhere along the way, she gets to Maryland, she’s reaching out to him. She tells him she lost her wallet in the casino and she cannot pay for her hotel room so he feels bad for her.”
“Apparently she was like, really stressed out, really distraught. He goes to the hotel, puts his card down at the counter and that’s it,” she added.
Robyn claimed that the encounter was the only time that Juan had met the woman in person, before admitting that the story sounded like “bullsh*t.”
“When I found out about it, it sounded like BS to me but he was very … I believe him. And also based on like, what she revealed last week, I believe him,” the Bravo star said.
Andy did not let Robyn slide by — as she was filmed shutting down Karen Huger’s accusations against her future husband.
Andy pointed out — “The expectation is that you’re sharing everything that’s going on in your life. So that’s why. It’s not about ‘pick me,’ wait to be picked. It’s ‘Hey, we went through something and this is what’s happening in our lives.”
“But it wasn’t an issue at that moment while we were filming,” Robyn countered.
“But it had been an issue in your relationship,” Andy hit back, as Robyn noted that the matter “wasn’t relevant to where we were in that present time.”
Robyn ultimately decided against adding an infidelity clause to the couple’s prenuptial agreement, even though she was in-the-know about Juan’s side chick.
She explained — “I guess that’s just the chance you take. And at the reunion, I said, ‘That very well that could work against me if for whatever reason years down the line, I end up doing something,’ and so it just became a little muddy and a little murky when trying to figure out what an infidelity clause looks like.”
Chris Bassett took aim at both Gizelle Bryant and Ashley Darby after news of Juan’s betrayal came out—accusing the RHOP ladies of lying about him to distract from Robyn and Juan’s issues.
Robyn argued — “I don’t know how Ashley plays into this, at all. We never discussed it so I don’t know how she plays into that. As far as Gizelle, I’m sure Gizelle will tell you, we’re really, really, really good friends. We talked about it when it happened so why would she have to bring it up while we’re filming when she and I have already talked about it?”
Andy pointed out that Gizelle had previously taken aim at both Wendy Osefo and Candiace Dillard.
Andy said — “Well she had no problem bringing up other people’s mess on the show.”
“Right but what, it was, I can’t speak for her. I really can’t,“ Robyn responded, before admitting that “maybe” a double standard existed.
“But I would actually expect Candiace to do that for Wendy. Like, if the roles were reversed and if other people were in the same situation, I would expect other people to do the same things for their friends,” she said.
Andy put Robyn in the hot seat for slamming Karen after she dropped the allegations, even though she knew that her co-star’s accusations against Juan had merit.
Robyn quipped, “Well we all have skeletons I believe.”
“But you really laughed it off…. It was like, ‘Oh my god, this could never happen. This is ridiculous,’” Andy said.
“No. I didn’t say that,” Robyn fired back. “She’s telling me, ‘Robyn, Juan has a girlfriend with blonde hair that looks like me that he walks around in Georgetown with holding hands and you know about it.’ I had never in my life heard that … A blonde in Georgetown is not the same thing as a woman on the other side of Canada.”
She added, “Has Karen brought her… whatever she has had really going on to the show? No. And I don’t expect them to tell on themselves like that when it is something that damaging.”
Robyn told the host that she did not expect transparency from her cast mates, when personal relationships were involved.
“If someone asked me about my relationship and said, ‘Oh I heard this rumor,’ then I would do the same. I would offer it to them,” she said. “But I don’t demand transparency on anyone’s relationship.”
Andy asked Robyn to explain why she didn’t come clean about her wedding delay, referencing her later admission that Juan’s behavior was what led to the date being pushed back.
“It was a combination of things and so I can’t 100 percent say, that situation is why it didn’t happen on everyone else’s timeline,” Robyn revealed. “There were a combination of things of why it didn’t happen on everyone else’s timeline.”
