Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 is on fire! Last season RHOP viewers watched Monique Samuels’ friendship with Candiace Dillard fizzle out. The duo supposedly made amends at the RHOP Season 4 reunion, but there is already tension brewing between them this season. I think that when Candiace challenged a pregnant Monique to drag her last season, it might have been foreshadowing what happens between the co-stars. Be careful what you wish for, Candiace!
On October 16, 2019 Monique allegedly grabbed Candiace by the hair and yanked her down. The altercation happened during a dinner party that was being filmed for RHOP. That’s right— Bravo cameras were rolling during the incident. Viewers will need to wait until later in the season to see the footage that Bravo captured.
There’s really no clever introduction for this story. Homophobic tweets have resurfaced from Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Candiace Dillard. A majority of the posts she shared are from 2010 and 2011.
The already-controversial reality star has spoken out about the public’s discovery of these tweets.
Real Housewives of Potomac fans have been eagerly awaiting Season 5 so we can see with our own eyes exactly what went down between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. I’ll bet that Candiace regrets telling Monique to drag her during Season 4, when Monique was heavily pregnant.
On October 16, 2019, the two ladies were at a dinner party with their RHOP co-stars when all hell broke loose. Monique allegedly grabbed Candiace’s hair and pulled her down. And Candiace allegedly struck Monique in the face with a wine glass. Yikes!
During last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels had a one-on-one lunch… without arguing. They actually managed to have a good time and they hosted an event for Ashley Darby… which completely went south because of Ashley and Candiace Dillard’s unresolved issues.
It was all good in the scenes with Monique and Gizelle. However, in a confessional, Gizelle shared the rumors that Charrisse Jackson-Jordan had been spreading about Monique. We all expect Gizelle to throw people under the bus, so episode 2 of the season is a good of a time to start as any other. Gizelle said that “the word on the street” is that Monique is having an affair with her trainer. Now, Monique’s actually genuine friend Karen Huger is speaking out. Oh, and I’m sure it doesn’t hurt that Karen and Gizelle have been frenemies for years. So, duh, of course, she has Monique’s back.
There was so much foreshadowing on last week’s Real Housewives of Potomac episode of the looming fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett. The Real Housewives of Potomac are back into the groove of things, and there is no other franchise on fire like this right now. Everyone is so hype waiting for the physical altercation to play out between Monique and Candiace. Hopefully, we actually get to see it, and it’s not heavily edited.
It would be nice to get a more in-depth look at Wendy Osefo on this new episode. Last week was such a sweet taste, but I want more! She’s going to fit in great with this group. Class is officially in session, and Wendy is here to school these women. Another big issue in play is the motive behind Candiace’s friendship with Charrisse Jordan. Is she plotting behind Monique’s back? Is there an ulterior motive here?
Thankfully, the Real Housewives of Potomac are back with a new season. After a frustrating delay, they came through during the season 5 premiere episode last week.
Tonight, there’s another new episode and get ready for this one: Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels are actually on good terms, and they’re even going to a one-on-one lunch together. Beyond that, they both decided to co-host a dinner in honor of Ashley Darby, who has been admittedly struggling with postpartum depression. As nice as that sounds, we all know the peace between Gizelle and Monique will not last… most likely not even past this episode.
Real Housewives of Potomac is finally back and I am so pumped. Honestly, it’s in my top 3 franchises and if you’re not watching, you better start. Take my word for it and thank me later.
While the season is just getting underway, there is already big drama brewing. We’ve seen in the press and we’ve watched it in the trailer. So it’s no secret what’s coming. One-time friends Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard get into a physical altercation while filming. Off-camera, the two women even filed charges against one another as a result. The charges have since been dismissed but whew, we haven’t seen a housewives legal mess like this in awhile. Now, it’s very hard for me to advocate physical violence, but Candiace did say, “Drag me, Monique.” It looks like she finally got her wish. As we see in the trailer clip, the ladies take sides and it doesn’t look like they are on Monique’s.
Celebrities fan out over reality TV stars too. We all know how much Jerry O’Connell, Chrissy Teigen, S.E. Cupp, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Rapaport, and Meghan McCain love to watch Bravo. They are always offering up their opinions on the drama.
Recently Seth Rogen talked about his love for Below Deck. And, now, Rihanna is naming her favorite Real Housewives stars.
