I have said it before and will say it again – if you’re not watching Real Housewives of Potomac, you are seriously missing out. Run, don’t walk, to season 1 and catch up immediately if you have to. For god’s sake, just get on board with this franchise. It’s so, so good.
One of the central story lines from RHOP this season is the physical fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett. We’ve been hearing it in the news, thanks to charges being filed by the both of them. But, no have finally seen what really happened.
Anytime there is a fight, people take sides. Especially housewives. So it’s no surprise that castmate Gizelle Bryant is putting in her two cents on the matter. And it turns out, Gizelle is firmly Team Candiace.
Gizelle minced no words and told Us Weekly, “I blame all this on Monique.” She elaborated, “It was a bad situation. It should have never happened and it should never have escalated into a physical altercation.” She’s right about that. The entertainment value might be there, but it’s never good when things get physical.

Gizelle added, “Candiace is annoying. Like she really is, but never to the point where you feel like you want to punch her in the face.” I mean, that’s debatable. But feeling and actually doing it are two different things.
Since charges were filed and dropped, Gizelle revealed, “They have not seen each other or spoken to each other since that day. We’ve had a couple of things that we need to do as a cast and they were kept on opposite sides of the room.”

She continued, “Candiace took it really, really hard. It was an emotional thing for her and for a very long time she couldn’t even talk about it without crying. They won’t be speaking until the reunion.”
Physical fights on housewives never end well, especially for the person who throws the first punch. Or tugs on the first strand of hair. And it seems like some of the Potomac Housewives feel like Monique went too far.

Bravo doesn’t take kindly to these fights either. So I’m curious to see if Monique will be able to stick around past this season. Or if any of her castmates want her around to film with. It sounds like Gizelle could do without her. Will Bravo feel the same?
