When is Real Housewives of Potomac returning for Season 5? There have been many rumors about what really went down during an altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. Candiace filed charges against Monique. Monique filed charges against Candiace.
This has all been so public and so private at the same time. Obviously, court filings are a matter of private record. However, the fans still don’t know exactly what happened.
Both of the Housewives have to be relieved because People reported that the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office informed lawyers for both reality stars that they would not move forward with the complaints.
“Charges have been dismissed by the Office of the State’s Attorney for Montgomery County, Maryland,” Public Affairs Director Ramón V. Korionoff told People.

The “alleged” physical altercation went down in October at a dinner party filmed for the show. In November, both Housewives filled second-degree assault claims against each other.
On one hand, I’m sure they’re both annoyed. But, overall, I have to assume that they’re both relieved that the state attorney isn’t coming for them. Monique tweeted “Dismissed” along with a peace sign emoji. In response, a fan told Monique “I’m disappointed in both of you. I don’t care who started it.” Monique agreed and told the viewer, “Me too.”

Monique also clarified a rumor that had been circulating that she was banned from a Season 5 cast trip. She tweeted, “It was my choice not to go. I don’t go where I don’t feel comfortable. I went on my own trip.” Who would blame her? Those “vacations” seem so stressful and exhausting. Minus the paycheck (and the freebies), it just seems like such an ordeal.
TELL US- ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT BOTH COMPLAINTS WERE DISMISSED? WILL MONIQUE AND CANDIACE EVER BE FRIENDS AGAIN? ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS STORYLINE? OR ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED BY THEIR BEHAVIOR?
