RHOP's Wendy Osefo Chats with Eddie about His Cannabis Company, His Family Not Approving of their Marriage, and Her Controlling Him

The Real Housewives of Potomac is close to the end of another season. This hasn’t been a fan-favorite installment of the show, but there has been quite a bit that has happened. However, what has remained true throughout the show is that Wendy Osefo has a solid support system at home with her husband Eddie

Wendy and Eddie have been married for 13 years, and they have 3 kids. The couple has been on the show since 2020.  

Eddie recently sat down with Wendy for an episode of The Dr. Wendy Show. They didn’t discuss RHOP, but they got into the history of their relationship, his cannabis company, and much more.

One of the biggest takeaways from the interview is that Eddie’s family didn’t want him to marry Wendy. In fact, Eddie and Wendy getting married divided the family, and their relationships didn’t improve until years later.

Wendy asked why his mother was against him marrying her. 

Eddie said, “You know, my mom and your mom just couldn’t see eye to eye. I think it was one of those things where I was the firstborn boy in the family. I was the first person in my family to even get married, and I think my mom just wasn’t trying to let go.”

He went on to say that perhaps his mother found Wendy’s personality to be too much for her son. However, he also admits that his mother never gave a concrete reason why she was so against the marriage. 

However, he then said that he and his siblings were starting to reconcile. 

According to Eddie, “Over the years, me and my siblings have begun to reconcile, and so we are in a better place now. We are speaking now. My siblings, we kind of went through like sibling therapy.”

Eddie and his parents have also started communicating after what sounds like a long time of division. He and Wendy even went to his sister’s wedding. 

Wendy then asks if Eddie would do anything differently regarding marrying her. He says, “I wouldn’t do anything differently. I still would have proceeded forward with marrying you.  I think in my heart of hearts I would have tried harder to get my parents on board.”

He then said they were engaged for about 14 months. He seemed to imply that he sought his parent’s approval during that time. 

Wendy then says, “There’s this narrative that’s been going around that I control you. Thoughts?”

He then says, “That’s just the narrative. I think that’s a lie. You try, though. Truth be told a lot of women try to control their men. You try, but you don’t.”

Wendy then chimes in and says that Eddie is stubborn. 

As fans of RHOP know, Eddie has a cannabis company called Happy Eddie. Wendy asks him why consumers should pick his product over others. 

Eddie says, “It’s just not some big bad corporation.”

He feels that his brand has a real face and a real person behind it, which gives people a connection with the product. 

They then talk about how the kids see the company. To them, Happy Eddie is only merchandise like hoodies or shirts. Eddie then says he will explain it to their oldest child first by telling him that it’s part of the wellness industry.  

The two then joke about Eddie following the “big booty models on Instagram.” 

Apparently, Eddie was following these accounts on the platform without realizing it. According to him, people on the internet discovered it, and now he’s no longer following these accounts. 

Overall, this was a pretty fun interview between the two. Besides not having the best relationship with his family, they kept it pretty light. 

A new episode of the RHOP season 8 will air next week on Bravo at 8/7c.
