Season 5 will mark the return of fan-favorites Karen Huger, Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, Candiace Dillard Bassett, Robyn Dixon, and Monique Samuels. Joining them is newbie Wendy Osefo. To give a bit of an intro, Wendy is a Nigerian-American political commentator. She is also a public affairs academic and assistant professor at Johns Hopkins School of Education.
