The fight has happened on The Real Housewives Of Potomac, but the drama’s just beginning. Dealing with the aftermath of Monique Samuels vs Candiace Dillard Bassett is equally emotionally taxing. We now know that Candiace is seeking legal action for what went down. This is going to send shockwaves into the group. The women are going to have a lot of opinions about this, and Candiace likely won’t like them.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens with Monique moving forward. There’s multiple group events moving forward, but she might not be at any of them. What does this mean for her friendships with Karen Huger and Ashley Darby? They’re the only ones on her side right now. She needs them in order to retain a place in this group.

This has been a break out season for Real Housewives of Potomac. But people aren’t watching for the touching and tender storylines. The reason why everyone is glued to RHOP is due to the smackdown Monique Samuels gave to Candiace Dillard. It was violent. It wasn’t pretty. It also could have been avoided. This has definitely been an occasion where viewers have taken sides. Additionally, it appears the cast takes sides as well.
All of us functioning grown people realize Candiace saying, “Drag me, Monique” was not a literal request to be led across the floor by her hair. But sometimes a smart mouth can get you in trouble.

Robyn Dixon wasn’t pulling any punches (metaphorically) when Monique said she had “no remorse.” Wendy Osefo continued to remind us of her resumé like she does during every single episode.

The next big question is if Candiace is willing to press charges. That’s a massive step.
