Nothing will ever be the same on Real Housewives of Potomac after that brutal fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard on October 16, 2019. Monique was charged with second-degree assault for grabbing Candiace by the hair and yanking her down on a table.
Naturally, Monique filed her own second-degree assault case, claiming that Candiace hit her in the face with a wine glass. All the charges were dismissed in December of 2019.
In the latest episode of Real Housewives of Potomac, we saw the real and raw fallout from Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels’ physical fight.
Candiace declined to meet with the ladies to tell her side of it and decided to work it out in therapy instead. Candiace still maintains that she did nothing to provoke Monique, despite what the cameras caught. I’m not saying she deserved it at all. I’m just pointing out that it’s a weird hill to die on when everyone can see that Candiace played her own role in egging Monique on. Monique, for her part, didn’t seem to have a ton of remorse in her meeting with the ladies either. And let’s just say, that didn’t sit well with anyone.
Real Housewives of Potomac is certainly bringing us the drama this season. Namely, the epic fight between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels.
Everyone is taking sides, housewives and fans alike. Castmate Gizelle Bryant has come out in support of Candiace. And in the show’s previews, the rest of the women aren’t really feeling Monique’s side of things either.

There is rarely a logical reason for violence. Violence as a whole impacts our society and lowers the standards of humanity. But right now, the Real Housewives of Potomac are walking a fine line being the judge, jury, and executioner of Monique in the aftermath of Hell In A Cell.
Viewers are experiencing the fallout of the fight between Monique and Candiace, but the public is very divided. This is not easy because there is no winning hand. Candiace of the “I Can Talk Shit All Day” Dillards vs Monique “Good Thing I Didn’t Have An Umbrella” Samuels. Monique seems to have kind of taken responsibility for her part and says she wants to move forward. But Candiace is still wondering what the hell got her here. Mother Dorothy’s purse has entered the group chat.
It’s hard to believe we are already halfway through a season of Real Housewives Potomac. Actually, maybe it’s not so hard to believe given everything that has transpired, especially in the last few episodes.
The growing tension between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels over allegations of Monique cheating finally spilled over, resulting in a physical fight. But as the mid-season trailer is about to show us, that’s not the only epic fight going down.
This is going to be one of the most unique episodes in Real Housewives Of Potomac history. We will see Karen Huger hosting all of the women for a sit down to discuss Monique Samuels’ attack on Candiace Dillard Bassett. There’s so many things that could go wrong with this. Gizelle Bryant has been looking for an excuse to get rid of Monique for years, and this could be the perfect moment.
On the flipside, Candiace is going to be sitting down with her therapist. She’s been through a lot. She’s still reeling from the effects of Monique’s attack. It’ll be interesting to see how she processes everything that went down. The downfall of this friendship has been one of the most fascinating Housewives story arcs of all time. There was so much build up. Let’s see who comes out with the most support among the women.
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?
