The real housewives of the Potomac welcomed Mia Thornton as a full-time actor for season 6, following the departure of Monique Samuels. Featured by Karen Huger, the newcomer has had a few clashes with some of the other ladies before, but otherwise seems to fit in with the rest of the cast. It is not yet known if she will return for the next season, but it is planned. How old is Thornton?

Also a franchise owner, her husband, Gordon, has served on the board of directors and sponsored families for the Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte, North Carolina.
They also support other organizations, including A Better World and A Child’s Place.
She joined “The Real Housewives of the Potomac” in Season 6
Introduced to the other ladies by OG Karen Huger, the new housewife didn’t seem to get along with Wendy Osefo or Candiace Dillard.
For example, Osefo called Thornton about the plastic surgery she had undergone when the new housewife wondered if the political commentator had done more work on her body than he initially revealed. Thornton had a long-standing feud with Dillard after calling the shooting of the singer’s music video “low budget.”
The reality TV star then hit back with a “yo mama” joke, hurting the feelings of Thornton, whose mother was struggling with drug addiction. The tension between the ladies came to a head during the couple’s journey when the ladies threw lettuce at each other.
Although Thornton threatened to leave, the new housewife eventually stayed, and she and Dillard apparently didn’t have any more problems. She also had a rough start with Gizelle Bryant, but overall the newcomer seems to fit in with the cast.
Castmates began to question their relationship after the couple’s trip
At the start of the Chesapeake Bay vacation, the Thorntons took photos with the Bassetts and Osefos. The usually reserved Gordon quickly began to let go as he jokingly flirted with the other ladies and discussed their “open” situation.
He also made several suggestive comments that shocked Wendy and Candiace and stuck his tongue out at Huger. After the October 10 episode, Wendy said she thought Mia asked about the rumors implicating her husband as a deviation and thought the newcomer was “insecure” about her marriage.

Additionally, Dillard noted that she believed the new cast member was “pretending” to like welcoming other women into their bedroom. However, Mia claimed that her husband’s flirtatious behavior didn’t bother her because he has a “confident wife.”
The franchise owner also noted that she didn’t mind as long as it was respectful as she wanted Gordon to have fun. The real housewives of the Potomac broadcast on Bravo.
