Dr. Wendy Osefo Teases Viewers What They Can Expect From Her In Season 5 Of RHOP; Says “Anything That You Guys See, I Own It”

Dr. Wendy Osefo opens up about joining the new season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. The mother-of-three and Johns Hopkins University lecturer teases viewers what they can expect in Season 5.

“In the preview, you see my little moment where I say, 'Address me correctly, sweetie,' so there's a moment there,” she told Fox News about the tension fans can expect in season five. “There's actually an unexpected tension that no one [will expect]. You know, I read those comments, too. I'm a fan as well so I see people's comments.”

“Anything that you guys see, I own it,” she said. “I am a political commentator, I am a professor and those are professions that you have to have your audience believe in you. And you have to make sure that what you're saying is what you truly mean.”

Osefo declared she’ll always stand on her own volition and will never say the editing was bad.

“No way – I own it. If there's anything that is said this time around, I will say I completely own it,” she explained. “And it's up to me to move forward with the women in such a way that I can correct those mistakes as the episodes go on. But I say I am an owner. I own my stuff.”

She admitted there were times during filming where she often felt overmatched due in part to the respect she had for her co-stars.

“It's different because when you're new at a job, the thing about it is you can always say, you learn on the job. When you're new, whatever it is, you’ll learn it,” Osefo said. “It's the same thing with even being a mom – you learn on the job. You don't know what it means to be a mom but once you have that baby, you're going to figure it out.”

“With 'Housewives' it's not really a job, it's literally a sisterhood of friends. It's literally a friendship group,” she continued. “And so there are some times that you're unsure of yourself. There are some times where you're like, 'Ah, I said that but I hope they didn't take it the wrong way.' So I think that it's uniquely positioned because these are matters of the heart. It's not a job. It's real-life friendship, it's real-life dynamic and so it's really interesting that I had moments where I was unsure of myself because these are women that I respect and I want to get to know on a deeper level.”

Wendy said her Nigerian background “uniquely positions” her to be able to share her heritage and culture with viewers at home and through those intense interactions, fans will become privy to “who I am, why I do the way I do different things and why I think the way I think.”

“I'm excited for viewers to get a look into my personal life, into my household, to see what that looks like for me,” she said. “And I think that viewers will be really intrigued by the way I handle it all. And to be quite honest – by the way I don't handle it all sometimes. And I'm just super, super excited for people to see that side of me. And I think that that's unique. It's something we have not seen before on reality TV.”

She added, “I felt like those honest conversations are often not had in public. We have those conversations with our girlfriends, but I wish I could turn on the TV and see a woman that is juggling motherhood and career – having these conversations out loud,” she told Fox News. “So hopefully, this season I can be that for other women who are trying to juggle it all and who are always asking themselves that same question that we've been asking for years, which is can women have it all? I hope that will be a source of strength for someone who is watching the show.”
