be questioned. mia thorntonPosting about her fear of cancer in the past was a hot topic in the season 7 premiere of The Real Housewives of the Potomac as his co-stars doubted the seriousness of his health problems.
“My first reaction when I saw the post was like, ‘Oh my God, what’s going on? I hope you are good. And then I had a ‘wait a minute’ moment, like, ‘Why is he saying all this on Instagram? Why is he telling this to hundreds of thousands of strangers?'” Robyn Dixon said exclusively us weekly before the premiere on Sunday, October 9. “I thought it was strange to share that kind of information so prematurely because it definitely caused an emotional reaction in me and I was like, ‘I couldn’t imagine, why would you share this on a platform like this? ‘ I definitely had my thoughts.”
