Robyn Dixon has frequently demonstrated her loyalty to her loved ones since joining The Real Housewives of Potomac in 2016. On the show, she is passionately protective of her best friend and fellow “green-eyed bandit,” Gizelle Bryant. Robyn also utilizes her platform to demonstrate her love for her sons, Corey and Carter.
While Robyn isn’t hesitant to square off against the Potomac ladies when necessary, her most problematic connection appears to be with former NBA star Juan Dixon. Robyn and Juan’s on-again, off-again romance has been portrayed on the show since its inception, from their breakups to their second wedding plans in Season 7.
Robyn Dixon Acknowledges that Financial Difficulties Brought Her and Juan Back Together
Robyn and Juan have discussed what they want to get right the second time around after their re-engagement. Robyn stated on the show that she wants them to avoid financial difficulties in the future.
Before reuniting, the couple acknowledged to losing all of Juan’s money to former basketball player Earl Badu. Earl allegedly said he would invest Juan’s inheritance before stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from them before committing suicide.
According to RadarOnline, Robyn filed for bankruptcy in 2012 after she was reportedly in debt for $217,000 and earning $2,000 per month. A decade later, Robyn said on RHOP that she is considering signing a prenuptial agreement to preserve the income she now has as the “breadwinner” of the family.
“I want to talk to Juan about perhaps obtaining a prenup,” Robyn said, adding, “I don’t feel, in a divorce, I don’t think the one who makes less money, I don’t think that they should automatically get half. They didn’t earn half of it.”
Juan and Robyn haven’t said if they’ll follow through on the prenup. However, the pair has recently moved into the gorgeous new home they began construction on in Season 5. Robyn said she’s proud of them for sticking together despite their financial difficulties. However, the reality star stated that their reconciliation was ultimately triggered by their financial crisis.
“I’ll be honest if Juan and I weren’t broke, and honestly, if we weren’t on the show, we definitely wouldn’t be together today,” Robyn told People in October at BravoCon 2022. “I say that because coming together when you’re financially struggling and needing to assist one another for the sake of your children, it was more so that we wanted each other to go to a better position because we have children.”
‘RHOP’ Star Robyn Dixon Marries Ex-Husband Juan Dixon Again
Robyn Dixon and Juan Dixon have married again! The Real Housewives of Potomac star, 43, and the former NBA player, 44, are married for the second time and have two boys, Corey, 14, and Carter, 13.
Three sources confirm that their joyful news will be revealed in the upcoming RHOP seventh season finale episode, which will include footage of the Dixons’ wedding, which was recorded after the program concluded and did not include Robyn’s fellow Potomac Housewives.
According to sources, Robyn will reveal more about the private wedding during the reunion program, which was taped last Thursday.
Bravo and Dixon’s representatives declined to comment. PEOPLE confirmed in August 2020 that the Dixons had gotten a marriage license from the Howard County Clerk’s Office in Maryland. They have until February to say “I do,” according to the county clerk.
During a recent trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico, Robyn revealed to costars Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Ashley Darby, Candiace Dillard Bassett, Mia Thornton, Dr. Wendy Osefo, and Friends of the franchise Charrisse Jackson-Jordan and Jacqueline Blake that she was planning to marry away from the gaze of reality TV cameras.
“I’m not even sure if I want to get married. I’m not sure whether I need one — say, a typical wedding “Instead, she explained that she wanted a private ceremony with just her, Juan, and the kids. “I’m going to keep things as basic as possible… There will just be four of us. We’re not going to inform anyone.”
“It’s essentially simply a ceremony, that’s all. We don’t need no cake, no celebration — nothing,” she later told her assistant, adding in confessional, “The concept of an actual wedding and all the pomp and circumstances that come with it, that doesn’t thrill me. It just feels more special to do it discreetly, away from everyone else and their reactions.”
Robyn previously stated that she and Juan intended to marry in July 2022 while in Jamaica for her brother’s wedding, but sources tell PEOPLE it never happened. It’s also unclear whether or not they signed a prenuptial agreement. In earlier episodes this season, Robyn pushed Juan to sign one, complete with an “infidelity clause” and everything.
Only when Juan promised to work something out with her did Robyn say she felt ready to walk down the aisle, the mother of two adding that a weight had been lifted off her shoulders. “Now all I want to do is plan our wedding,” she remarked on the show. “I mean, I can’t wait. I’m ecstatic.”
Robyn and Juan Met in High School and Married in 2005 Before Separating in 2012.
For the sake of their family, the couple famously continued to live together and even share a bed, with cameras filming their unique relationship in the first season of RHOP, which began in January 2016.
“My kids had no idea we were divorced,” Robyn said in a video for Bravo’s The Daily Dish. “They had no idea we had been through so much! They learned a lot about our relationship and family from the play, based on what their peers told them. So they come up to us and say, ‘So, why this? ‘Why is that?’ So I’d have to say to them, ‘We’re fine, aren’t we? We’re fine! Don’t be concerned.'”
“I found that my castmates or fans were more judgemental about my predicament than we were,” she added. “It’s almost as though we got it! It’s not for everyone to grasp, but it’s our way of life.”
Robyn revealed during season 4 that their relationship had turned a corner and they were “[doing it] like bunny rabbits,” as they slowly repaired their closeness over the years.
