When Monique Samuels originally mentioned her car accident on Real Housewives of Potomacit was in the context of her being so tired from her busy schedule. She lost control of that narrative when frienemy Ashley Darby told the rest of the cast that Monique had four martinis before she got behind the wheel.
As expected, Monique is not pleased with Ashley. This all snowballed into a screaming matching match in the street outside of Karen Huger’s perfume event and somehow Robyn Dixongot in on the argument. Now Robyn’s girl is sharing her perspective on the drama and it’s no surprise that she’s siding with her close friend.
The last episode of the show began where the previous one left off: Ashley and Robyn Dixonarguing with an umbrella-wielding Monique. Even though Ashley is the one who “introduced” Candiace Dillard to the cast, Candiace made it clear that she’s on Monique’s side at this moment.
After all the craziness for the last four weeks, tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac was relatively drama free. According to the men in my life, there is a basketball game playing on another channel, so I’m going to use a sports reference and say this was the halftime show; kind of entertaining, but certainly not the main event.
We resume where we left off last week: On the street outside Karen Huger’s Scentertainment Party. Robyn Dixon takes Monique Samuels up on her offer to come at her. Monique is multi-tasking by yelling at the Green Eyed Bandits in a pace that is comparable to the speed of light and at the same time counting her considerable fortune. Monique is not going to fight Robyn because one tap on the cheek and broke Robyn will be dragging Monique’s skinny butt into court. Robyn taunts her, but Charrisse Jackson and Karen manage to lead Monique away from the chaos. Everyone but Monique knows Robyn could drop her with a single punch. Charrisse tries to defend Monique to the rest of the group which makes Robyn and Gizelle Bryant go after Charrisse until thankfully security tells them they need to clear the street. Does anyone understand how Robyn is in the middle of this? It was originally between Ashley Darby and Monique. It’s like Robyn is working freelance as Ashley’s hired gun and Monique didn’t get the memo that she could outsource this fight. Once everyone else leaves, Monique breaks down to Charrisse. I love giving Charrisse a hard time, but she was on her best behavior this episode and gave Monique a much-needed shoulder to cry on.
Karentried to detract from the tax drama hosted an event to smell scents for a perfume that she is working on with her ambiguous employee Matt by her side. All hell broke loose when Monique Samuels confronted Ashley Darbyand Karen kicked them out via security guards- which seems to be her go-to move this season.
When Monique Samuelsinitially brought up her car accident on Real Housewives of Potomac, she didn’t expect it to turn into a storyline about her drinking. She mentioned it in the context that she is so busy and so tired that she fell asleep behind the wheel before she crashed and fell into a ditch.
Monique wrecked her car after she went to lunch with Ashley Darby– who claimed that Monique had four drinks before driving. Now, Ashley, Gizelle Bryant, and Robyn Dixonare questioning Monique’s drinking habits.
