At this point, it seems very clear that the Real Housewives of Potomac cast is divided into two sides: Karen Huger, Monique Samuels, and Candiace Dillard on one and Robyn Dixon, Gizelle Bryant, and Ashley Darby on the other. If the reunion seating did not reflect this obvious division in the cast, it would be shocking.
With that said, it is not surprising that Karen is taking Monique‘s side after that clash in the street with Robyn and Ashley.
Karen discussed the last RHOP episode in a Bravo blog post. Karen admitted, “I thought by wrapping up my event it would put an end to the clash but, no such luck. The ladies took it to the streets. It was shameful. After everyone finally left, I was grateful that no one was hurt. Moving forward, when planning my events, I will be more selective about who I invite among the ladies.” She may want to be “more selective,” but I’m sure she is contractually obligated to include the rest of the cast in most events.
Karen revealed, “I spoke to Monique briefly after the clash and encouraged her to never let the ladies push her buttons or take her to a negative place. Monique was very hurt and disappointed that some of the ladies who she had extended her friendship to, would turn around and attack her.”
She continued, “While it pains me to watch Monique so upset, it’s understandable that she would have a breaking point. The constant attacks and bickering has gone on far too long. Monique does not deserve this.”
Aside from being on Monique’s side, Karen didn’t miss out on the opportunity to go against Gizelle and Robyn. Karen wrote, “I have compassion for Monique in this situation. Unfortunately, I know firsthand how it feels to be attacked by the “bully team”. Everyone has witnessed Gizelle and Robyn’s attempted attacks on my family. While I’ve moved on and forgiven, I have not forgotten. One would think that they would have learned it’s not a good look and hang up their grown mean girl act for good.” But then what would happen to the story lines on this show? These girls know exactly what they’re doing: securing a Season 4.
It seemed like Ashley and Monique made up at their lunch, but it was just full of shady comments. Karen said, “Ashley is a seasoned expert in backhanded apologies. Robyn should have reached out and had a one on one moment with Monique.”
