Monique Samuels Says Potomac Housewives Hazed Candiace Dillard More Than They Hazed Her

Just like many Housewives that came before her, the newest Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Candiace Dillard has not received the warmest reception from the rest of the ladies.

Even last season’s new girl Monique Samuels thinks that Candiace is getting hazed pretty hard. She even thinks Monique got it way worse from the girls than she did when she joined the group.

Monique discussed the last episode in a Bravo blog post. Monique wrote, “Grilling is part of getting to know someone. Personally, I thought Candiace was giving way too much information to these ladies too soon. They enjoy judging people, and I don’t think that she was prepared to defend herself at that moment.”

Monique continued, “I feel like the Candiace that I met at Ashley’s [Darby] event was far more capable of handling the shade than bubble soccer Candiace. Maybe the heat, pressure from the food being late, or lack of napkins left her unprepared to ‘clap back.’ I was hoping that she would’ve put them in their places right away that day.” Unfortunately for Candiace, that’s not what happened.

Monique confessed, “I definitely felt like Candiace got more heat from the ladies than I did, especially when she started telling us about how much her mom does for her. Most of us are or were married to successful men, so we’re accustomed to hearing stories of the man being the provider, not our mommy. I think it was a little shocking for the group since most of us have been caring for ourselves since our teenage years.”

Monique admitted, “I wanted to help Candiace out because I really do like her, but at the same time, it’s important for her to earn the respect she deserves from this group on her own. But I’ll definitely be giving her some advice moving forward if she wishes to receive it.”
