Only four episodes in and marriage drama is already rocking The Real Housewives of Potomac. In the exclusive preview below, Charrisse Jackson Jordan breaks down about the state of her marriage to basketball coach Eddie. She lives fulltime in Potomac while he's coaching the Rutgers team in New Jersey.

"I'm running around half the time like a chicken with my head cut off because I'm trying to make up for being daddy and mommy," she says.

Viewers have yet to see Eddie on camera, but he came for a visit to see son Jackson's basketball game. And then went back to New Jersey.

Eddie and Charrisse come from humble beginnings, but all that changed with his coaching success. Still, she says she'd give it all up to go back to the way things were in their relationship. "Now, we have a lot of things, but I would do anything right now to just go back to the basics," she says.

Over drinks with her friend Brynee, Charrisse breaks down. "His life is his job and I'm the mistress...I don't even know if I'm the mistress, at least the mistress gets something," she says while holding back tears. "Now I'm just trying to figure it all out because I don't really know where this road is going for me."

Find out what happens on The Real Housewives of Potomac Sunday at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
