Mia Thornton Opens Up About Joining The Real Housewives Of Potomac!

Mia Thornton is spilling the tea about joining the cast of the sixth season of The Real Housewives of Potomac.

"I'm definitely not new to Housewives," Mia told E! News during a Q&A session. "I've definitely been watching it since the beginning of time, and I've always remembered being inspired as such a young girl and knowing these women were opening their homes, being so vulnerable and sharing their lives with us. And I thought to myself when I got the call, I was like, ‘OK, now it's time. This is happening.'"

Thornton admits that she did not make friends right away. "Making friends is always a challenge for me," Mia shared. "People gravitate towards me, typically it's other female founders or other people who are just not necessarily looking for a friendship. They're looking for a business acquaintance, and I can do that all day long."

She continued, "So it was hard for me to naturally gravitate towards anybody. Karen [Huger] and I, we hit it off immediately because she's living in that space with her La Dame, and she gets it. She's like, ‘Honey, never apologize for not returning my phone call, because if I don't return yours, we're in the same bucket here. We're busy and we're focusing on our empires.'"

She added, "So it was hard for me to connect on a personal level, but I opened myself up and I shared things with the ladies to let them know that I am human—I'm not a robot—and we actually found out we had more in common in certain areas than not."

As for who she clashes with this season? "I would probably say the most heated moment was with Wendy [Osefo] and Candiace [Dillard]," she revealed. "I think it's just because we have strong personalities. Anytime you get strong personalities together in a room, our alpha female lioness comes out. We all would have to like make ourselves prominent. We weren't really gelling well, but I knew that we had—and I know that Wendy and I have more in common than we may even know yet—but I will say that it was a hard time. We were like, ‘OK who is the queen of this castle?' And of course it was going to be me."
