Former Real Housewives of Potomac star, Charisse, lost her marriage while filming the hit Bravo series. But now she’s doing just fine, as she seems to have found a new man and happiness, Media Take Out can confirm.
Charisse was on the first two seasons of the show, when her husband Eddie gave her an ultimatum – either quit the show or we’re divorcing. Charisse decided to choose the show over her marriage. At the time, as Media Take Out reported, it seemed like a bad choice.
After two seasons as a full-time cast member, Charisse got demoted to “a friend” in Season 3. Jackson Jordan says her children had difficulty adjusting to the divorce, and she became depressed. “I was crying all the time on the show,” she recalls.
But she says she felt pressure from the producers to show more of her life. “My stuff wasn’t moving at the speed of TV. They wanted to see me date. I didn’t want to date. I really didn’t want a divorce, so I was just going through all this pain, and all this stuff, so it was good for me not to come back because I was checked out,” she said.
She left the show after Season 3 and returned for random pop-up appearances. She’s now a friend of the show in Season 7.
And she seems to have finally come to grips with being single. Media Take Out confirmed that Charisse is dating Marcus Clarke a handsome older gentleman, who seems to be a really solid guy.
Marcus is very well-connected and family-oriented. And he’s a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.
