The word on the street Gizelle Bryant is still the word on the street, though she’s no longer boasting about it her Real Housewives of Potomac tagline.

After three seasons of using the phrase on the hit Bravo show, the EveryHue Beauty founder has stepped away from it in the season 4 opening credits — which PEOPLE can exclusively premiere.

She’s still confident as ever, of course. “I’m the baddest thing walking and the smartest one talking,” she quips, kicking off a string of taglines from her costars Karen Huger, Monique Samuels, Robyn Dixon, Ashley Darby, and Candiace Dillard.

Each star references something from their storyline, from Huger’s self-appointed “Grande Dame” status to Dillard’s new marriage and Samuels’ umbrella-freakout last season.

Here’s the full list:

  • “I’m the baddest thing walking and the smartest one talking” — Gizelle Bryant
  • “You can try to tear me down, but the Grand Dame never crumbles” — Karen Huger
  • “I’ve traded in my umbrella. It’s all gold at the end of this rainbow” — Monique Samuels
  • “The shorter my hair, the shorter my patience” — Robyn Dixon
  • “Karma is a bitch, but luckily, I’m on her good side” — Ashley Darby
  • “Now that I’m marrying my prince, this sleeping beauty is woke!” — Candiace Dillard

Back in March, PEOPLE exclusively premiered the trailer for the series’ latest offering, and life in Maryland’s most affluent neighborhood isn’t all cherry blossoms this year.

Driving a chunk of the drama are the sexual assault claims against Ashley’s husband Michael Darby, which made headlines back in September when a Bravo cameraman accused Michael of “grabbing and groping” his butt while filming.

Both Ashley and Michael denied the alleged incident ever took place, and the Montgomery County State Attorney’s office dropped the charges of felony assault and misdemeanor improper sexual conduct against Michael in October. But the Potomac Housewives still appear to think he’s guilty.

“Clankity clank. The bar of soap? You might want to help your husband,” Huger tells Ashley, implying that Michael might be going to jail.

“Karma is a bitch, honey,” Huger adds, in a line that appears to have inspired Ashley’s tagline.

But the Darbys, who announced in February that they are expecting their first child, aren’t the only ones in the hot seat.

Though Samuels is pregnant (she welcomed her son Chase in November), she’s still fighting with Bryant and appears to have found a new foe with Dillard.

“I’ll drag you, pregnancy and all,” Samuels yells at Dillard.

“Oh you’re going to drag me now?” Dillard asks.

Things are going a little bit better with Robyn and her ex-husband Juan Dixon, who appear to be having sex again “like bunny rabbits.” Does that mean they’re ready to make things official? Robyn asks the same question. “At this point it’s like, what do we want?” she wonders.

Bryant has an opinion on that. She appears to tell Robyn in the trailer she’s “looking stupid,’ a comment Robyn doesn’t seem to like. “You’re an insensitive ass bitch,” she says in the trailer.

Huger is still mourning the loss of her two parents while working on the launch of her perfume bottle, while Bryant is focusing on mending old friendships — including one with former Housewife Katie Rost, who returns as a Friend of the Housewives this season — before her book launch.

The Real Housewives of Potomac season 4 premieres May 5 (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo. Starting May 19, the series moves to its permanent timeslot at 8 p.m. ET.
