Is anyone else experiencing altercation fatigue when it comes to Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett. The fight was intense and dramatic, but it’s almost all they talk about now. Do better Real Housewives Of Potomac. One new thing that actually might be brewing is a rift between Candiace & Karen Huger. It boils down to a different definition of friendship. What you expect your friend to do and what they actually do might be two different things.
It must be difficult for Karen to try to navigate between her two friends. However, at the end of the day, it was MONIQUE who crossed the line more than anyone else. She created the mess that has her on the outs with most of the cast. For them, it’s just too soon to start repairing and forgiving. If she lets it breathe a bit, she may be able to find her way in the group again. For now though, she needs to stop playing the victim.
Someone please teach Gizelle Bryant how to dress herself. Whatever she’s choosing on her own simply isn’t working. Hopefully she does better helping Juan Dixon pick out a ring for Robyn Dixon. She’s probably jealous though. We all know Robyn and Juan have a better shot at success than Gizelle & Jamal Bryant.
The price tags on these engagement rings are so damn high. However, this is their second time around, so he needs to make it special. Robyn has actually grown on me this season, and I’m not as bored by her existence. 2020 is wild y’all.
Monique is still stressed out about the low ticket sales for her live podcast. Do people want to pay for one singular episode of a podcast? I run a subscription website that has podcasts, but we offer multiple options and multiple episodes. This is not that.

Monique is still embarrassed following the incident with Monique. SHE SHOULD BE. It’s nice that Monique is finally starting to feel bad, but it’s too little too late. Monique reaches out to the women about attending her podcast, and Robyn is on the fence.
On one hand I feel for Monique, but on the other hand, she made this bed. She put herself on this island by crossing the line she did. Karen of course was all in for the event, but Ms. Wendy Osefo read Monique for filth. Monique has not openly expressed any remorse for her actions to the people that matter. Until that happens there is no reason for any of the women to want to move forward with her.
It also comes down to association. The women all have brands, and they don’t want to jeopardize their livelihoods by associating with someone who can snap at the drop of a hat. Monique has proven to be a liability at this point.

Karen and Ray Huger meet with the life coach woman that is helping them through this current slump. Ray is making a lot of valid arguments about Karen’s lack of availability these days. However, you can’t fault Karen for wanting to chase success. She’s in her prime right now. Karen Huger is THE hot brand. Ray isn’t the primary breadwinner for the family anymore. Things have changed.
Ray finally acknowledges the role Karen played in getting him out of his IRS mess. That’s a great step for the two. Hopefully they can work through this disconnect and reignite the spark in their marriage.
Wendy invites all of the women to an event combining wine and politics. Well, not everyone. Once again Monique is being left out of a group filming event. Not surprising. I *almost* feel bad for her. ALMOST.

Candiace is still having panic attacks about what went down, and that must be debilitating. The real issue right now that’s brewing is between Candiace & Karen. She expects her friend to be willing to call Monique out for what she did.That’s not entirely what’s happening though. Karen is tiptoeing herself through this Switzerland field, and it’s going to cost her a friendship. Candiace is FED UP. It’s hard to blame her.
Gizelle is no longer feeling her long distance relationship with Jamal. She feels like the only available options are moving together or ending the relationship. Long distance truly is a hard thing to do, so I have to give them props for lasting this long.
It must be difficult for her to do this because of his past indiscretions. Her mind has to constantly wonder if he’s up to no good again and stepping out on her. That paranoia can eat someone alive.

The turnout for Monique’s live podcast is underwhelming at best. Ashley Darby is the only one there to support her. Karen bailed at the last minute. The other women don’t feel she’s learned anything, so they don’t want to come support her. That’s their right.
Ashley drops the bombshell on Monique that Karen is actually the one who encouraged Candiace to press charges in a way. Perhaps the Grand Dame doesn’t have Monique’s back the way she claimed. There might be more to her podcast no show than meets the eye. Karen can’t play down the middle forever. That just doesn’t work in situations like this.
When asked the current state of her relationship with her and Candiace, she responds saying “pray for us”. Prayers are needed for all involved if we’re ever going to move on. The build to the fight was incredible, but now it’s time to diverge and go in a new direction. I can’t take them harping on this fight all season.

Robyn doesn’t want to discuss her IRS troubles with her parents. She’s scared because she knows she’s going to be scolded for this. I don’t understand how these people find themselves in situations like this. Everyone has to pay their taxes. How are you “forgetting” to do that? You’re a public figure.
Juan tells Robyn’s parents he plans on proposing, and he wants their blessing. They might not want their daughter to take this step again. What assurance can he provide that it won’t happen again? Luckily, they are more than okay with it. GOOD! That went much more smoothly than I expected.
I think it’s really cool that Wendy is uniting all of the women from the different parts of her life. This gives everyone the chance to mingle and be exposed to opinions that might differ from their own. Very nice. I love how accomplished Wendy is, but she still doesn’t impress me much as a Housewife.

ROBYN’S WIG IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. All of the women hate it, and rightfully so. It’s one of the worst looks in the history of this show. Burn it, and never look back. Do better. A crime against humanity!
Wendy is totally in her element at this event, and it’s showing me a new side to her. I’m not as bored with her as I usually am. If Robyn can grow on me, then anything is possible. Miracles do happen.
Candiace asks Karen to go downstairs to have a conversation about their recent troubles. Upstairs though, Gizelle spills all the tea to everyone about Karen bailing Ray out of his tax woes. She claims she wants to be a friend to her, but she is being typically Messy G. No different than usual.

Candiace thinks Karen has made excuses for Monique and refuses to take a side. After being called out for that, Karen flips it and calls Candiace out for her mouth. That mouth is definitely a weapon of its own. Powerful. It still doesn’t give Monique the right to take it physical though. Stop comparing the two things.
I have to respect Karen here for holding her own against Candiace. I expected her to flip-flop a bit about this, but she’s actually fighting against her. Very unexpected. Upstairs, Ashley is the sole voice in support of Monique.
Karen believes something is medically wrong with Monique that resulted in the fight. Wait what? Where has this come from? This victim crap is so old. This sucks for Karen because she’s being totally railed for defending her friend. Where is this energy for Ashley?
