On the season five premiere of “RHOP”, viewers were introduced to Dr. Osefo who is a friend of Candiace Dillard. In the episode, Karen said she had previous interactions with Wendy. She said she had run into her at events and served on a board with her.
Karen expressed she wasn’t impressed with Wendy from her short interactions. As the episode aired, the two took to Twitter to take a couple of jabs at each other.
I wouldn’t be impressed with a young, educated BLACK woman, raising her young BLACK boys in today’s America if I were you as well.I should stop speaking out against injustices against BLACK people and start selling perfume. It makes sense your name is “Karen”🙄🤷🏽♀️ #RHOPWatchParty https://t.co/OksjZhHp3I

Karen started by writing, “What do you mean. I act like I’ve never met you. I just said hello to you at Candice’s party last night.. I met you briefly on the carpet and heard your voice a few times during phone conversations when we briefly served on the same board. So far #notimpressed #RHOPWatchParty”
Wendy quickly fired back, “I wouldn’t be impressed with a young, educated BLACK woman, raising her young BLACK boys in today’s America if I were you as well.I should stop speaking out against injustices against BLACK people and start selling perfume. It makes sense your name is “Karen”???♀ #RHOPWatchParty.”

Their costar Robyn Dixon wrote to Wendy, “Well, welcome to the party @WendyOsefo.” Another fan wrote, “An educated black woman should not tear down another black woman for owing her own business. Plus you all ended up on the same reality show so there’s no need for the who’s better than who.”
“Here’s the thing Wendy, Karen is only fond of women she feels she’s “better” than. You show up on the scene educated, established, & ACCOMPLISHED on your own and more than just being some rich man’s wife. She’s not impressed b/c she intimidated #RHOP #RHOPWatchParty,” commented another.
“Oh I knew you were gonna be a star. Keep that energy! #RHOPWatchParty,” said one fan.
