Charrisse opened up about the drama in a Bravo blog post. She wrote, “I knew firsthand going into the dinner that Monique was still fuming about Ashley Darby’s allegations. I was praying that Ashley wasn’t going to agitate the situation because I knew Monique was at the edge of flipping out.” Spoiler alert: Monique did flip out.
Charrisse continued, “Monique had expressed to me that she didn’t want to address the issue that night and wanted to talk to her without the mean girl cheerleading squad. Inside I knew we would not get out of this dinner without someone trying to ignite the flame. Per usual…Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon enticed the conversation, Ashley was Ashley, and it was on and popping!” And they all want to get the green light for Season 4, so of course someone was going to go off for the sake of a storyline.
Charrisse shared, “I saw the anger all over Monique’s face as soon as Ashley started talking to her. I really didn’t expect things to escalate the way that they did. Monique expressed not wanting to discuss the situation because she knew that she wasn’t in the right state of mind to have a rational conversation. I don’t agree with her verbal attack directed at the ladies because it only added fuel to the volcano. I felt like I was having an outer body experience.” It really wasn’t that outrageous as far as Housewives arguments go if I’m being honest.
Charrisse said, “This was the first time in my life that I have ever been kicked out of anywhere. Karen’s desire to get security involved was a bit extreme. It was a private gathering and there really wasn’t a need to have us removed.”
The Friend of the Housewives wrote, “Honestly, it was all a blur. Monique was enraged and along come Ashley. I’m thinking damn! Damn! DAMN!! It’s about to go down and I just want to go home. I think I may have blacked out because I don’t remember Monique whipping out her umbrella but I was standing right there. I remember looking up and they were at it. I don’t recall moving toward them or being that close. All I can remember was Ashley approaching us barking and then me and Monique driving home.”
Charrisse confessed, “I honestly checked out. Maybe I thought that I was having a flashback to high school and it didn’t register that I was in current time. Whatever the case, it was a crazy night and I hope it never gets worse than that.” How was that a flashback to high school? I cannot help being curious.
