It’s been weeks since the fight between Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett. However, the altercation is almost ALL anyone is talking about on The Real Housewives of Potomac. Does anyone else have fatigue from this assault talk? We get it. We know what happened. Either they find a way to move past it, or one of them needs to leave the group. Monique is so isolated and on an island right now, so maybe she should go.
Tensions are only going to escalate though because Monique is going to file a counter suit. No idea why or what grounds. Everyone with eyeballs saw that Monique is the one who took things to the next level. For her to have the audacity to then try to become the victim is mind blowing. The charges for both end up dropped, but this is going to be quite the journey it seems.
Candiace’s vocal exercises sound like someone is being painfully tortured. I think she’s a great singer, but the warm ups are killing me. I CANNOT listen to it anymore. Please make it stop. I love you girl, but spare us from THAT.
It’s great that she has music as an outlet to work through her current issues. Her anxiety has been so high since the attack, so this is really good for her. Hopefully she can find some peace after the heinous assault.
Robyn Dixon is on time to everything this season, and I’m here for it. There’s something so light and fresh about her as well. I was ready to kick her to the curb and off the show, but she’s changing my mind. I don’t want to say I’m becoming a Robyn stan, but I’m not not saying it either.
Wendy Osefo disclosed so much tea about Karen Huger to the women about her drunken tea spillage. Naturally, Gizelle Bryant is going to capitalize on this moment. She’s messy and any chance to dig at Karen makes her happy.
At least Karen is aware that she needs to be cautious having discussions with both Gizelle and Robyn. The green-eyed bandits are always up to something, and it’s usually shady. Keep your guard up with those two!
Gizelle shading Robyn’s hat company by calling it “embezzled” instead of “Embellished” gave me so much life. She knew exactly what she was doing in that moment. I see you.
Robyn is having an event for her hat business, but she’s choosing to not include Monique. Another event without Monique. I feel like her time in this group is coming to an end. You can’t really move forward like this.
Gizelle finally confronts Karen about having to bail Ray Huger out with his tax mess. Karen totally owns the entire situation which is a vast difference from how it used to be. I know Wendy was told that Karen wants her money back, but there wasn’t a need really to repeat that. It’s just mean spirited.
This does nothing to help the growing disdain between Karen and Wendy. They haven’t vibed from the jump. It’s a little hilarious watching Karen shade Wendy’s doctor title. She knows damn well that she wasn’t a medical doctor, but her getting her digs in was perfection.
One thing you can’t take away from Wendy is all of her accomplishments. She is such a success story, and she appears to be a great mother as well. I do enjoy her family scenes, but I’m not entirely sold on her as a Housewife in the group settings.
Wendy’s tired of Karen’s attacks because she knows how much she’s struggled to get to where she is. She’s persevered through so much, and Karen hasn’t even taken the time to get to know her. It’s hard for me to side against the Grand Dame though because she is the moment.
I love how Ashley is unafraid about putting it all out there. She lays her life out for everyone to see, and not everyone is willing to do that. Ashley is the shining example of how a reality TV star should do it. Period.

Ashley tells her therapist she doesn’t feel sexy anymore since having Dean. She feels like she’s more of a utility now than a sexual being. That change just might lead to Michael Darby straying again. Ashley needs to lock in that post nuptial agreement before we have a repeat performance of his hotel debacle.
Since having Dean, Ashley feels like she’s in a box with no way out. I really hate seeing her struggle like this. Her therapist encourages Ashley to take a vacation and take care of herself as well. If Ashley can get herself on track, she can then be the wife and mother she wants to be.
Candiace meets with a music producer about the remix of her song, and I dig it. What I like more is seeing the smile on her face about it. Finally something positive for her to focus on. The Monique drama has taken a toll on her, so it’s good that she has SOMETHING.
The producer offers to sign Candiace to her label, and she breaks down into tears. This has been a dream of hers since she was a young girl, so this is huge. Major congratulations are in order for Candiace! Also, shoutout to her folded tissue for making a cameo.

Monique hates that Candiace escalated the situation by taking it to a legal route. UH. Alright. You are NOT the victim ma’am. You should’ve thought about your family before putting your hands on someone. Candiace isn’t responsible for you possibly being taken away from your family. That’s on you boo.
Gizelle’s house looks so much better than last year, but I can’t with that pink wall. Someone teach her the basic fundamentals about interior design. However, BABY DEAN IS SO CUTE OH MY GOD. He’s like next level adorable. I’m finally able to look past how much he looks like Michael.
Ashley brings up her trip idea to Gizelle, but Monique attending can’t be on the table for Gizelle. She claims she’s not ready to be around her yet. That excuse makes sense for Candiace, but Gizelle just hates Monique, so she’s running with this. She’s been waiting for this moment since she met Monique.
I actually don’t hate Robyn’s hats. It looks like something I might consider wearing possibly. Gizelle and Robyn fill in Wendy about the shade Karen directed toward her, and Wendy’s going to confront her. Here we go!

Karen greets Wendy when she arrives at the event, but Wendy gives her the cold shoulder. Candiace is feeling a little icy toward Karen as well, but she’s conflicted about it. I get that. Karen is trying so hard to play both sides here, and that’s exhausting. Sometimes you can’t be neutral. Sorry.
Ashley gives the women a hint about their vacation with a flag, but nobody recognizes it besides Wendy. The women are going to Portugal. Even better is that Baby Dean won’t be tagging along. Monique is left off the trip as well. I know that sucks for Monique, but it’s probably for the best.
Wendy confronts Karen and claims she doesn’t brag, but she is constantly talking about it. She comes off a little elitist to me, and I can’t stand it. Every word out of her mouth is some sort of ego rub for herself. Karen READS Wendy for filth, and I’m over here clapping through it all.
We flash forward to two days later, and the news breaks that Candiace has now been charged with assault. Candiace is PISSED about this. Angry doesn’t even begin to cover the emotions coming from her. I kind of agree with Candiace that Monique is a little sociopathic. I don’t get it. Her ego is on another planet.
