Candiace Dillard Bassett

Monique Samuels Real Housewives of Potomac RHOP

After the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, viewers are still reeling. We all knew the fight between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels was coming. But man, it was a doozy. What we weren’t prepared for, is how quickly lines were drawn as to who was at fault.

Prior to the fight, fans were busy going over their own theories on why they were even beefing to begin with. Then it all happened and social media has been lit up with trying to figure out who initiated physical contact. We’ve seen the tape, some of us (ok, me) have slowed it down, trying to see if the hair pull came before the vest grab. But honestly, does it even matter at this point? Physical violence is bad and both women played a role in their own demise.

Whew boy. The latest episode of Real Housewives of Potomac still has me SHOOK. The fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard finally went down, in all its glory. Both women have taken to social media to tell their sides of the story. And it looks like the cast is busy taking sides.

But that’s not the only drama happening between the ladies of Potomac. In fact, there is plenty happening off screen. Many fans have quickly taken to new housewife, Wendy Osefo. But has the cast?

Real Housewives of Potomac viewers finally saw the much-hyped altercation between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels. It happened on October 16, 2019 during an event thrown by RHOP co-star Gizelle Bryant. Of course, Bravo cameras were rolling.

The former friends were involved in a verbal fight that escalated when Monique grabbed Candiace by the hair and dragged her over a table. When Candiace was being put in a car and driven away for her safety, Monique rushed at the vehicle. Frankly, the fight was vicious, violent, and difficult to watch.

Two days later and I’m still reeling from that physical altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard on Real Housewives of Potomac. I can’t imagine how the actual cast members feels.

It was just so much happening at once. Monique refused to let go of Candiace’s wig. They were both screaming at each other. Then, Monique thought it was a good idea to run after Candiace in a parking lot. On the ride home, her husband Chris Samuels deemed the fight to be “embarrassing,” which Monique did not seem to agree with at the time. So, how does she feel now, months later after she’s been able to watch the footage?

After months of hype, we’ve finally seen the altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. It all went down at a winery where the ladies were set to celebrate Gizelle Bryant’s fashions literary award.

As Drake once sang (many summers ago), “it went from zero to one hundred real quick, real f*cking quick.” The fact that it escalated to that level following a conversation that wasn’t any more heated than what we’ve seen all these years is mind blowing. Sure, the tension had been building for years, but it just got way out of hand. It was tough to watch Monique refuse to let go of Candiace’s wig for what felt like forever. Karen Huger was in a panic seeing her two closest allies in the group go at it. Robyn Dixon stood by smiling. Ashley Darby missed the whole thing because she was in the rest room. I watched it, hit “rewind,” and then watched it again, and, even still, it’s jumbled mess to watch and decipher.
