Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac was all about the build-up to the altercation between co-stars Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. The rest of the season will be about the consequences of the fight, and how it affects the ladies.
At a RHOP cast event, Candiace challenged Monique to drag her, and Monique did just that. Monqiue pulled Candiace’s hair and yanked her down across a table. And, of course, Bravo cameras were rolling. It was awful to watch, and there is no excuse for violence.
Isn’t it nice when ladies of a high-end community can solve conflicts and have mature discussions to iron out issues? It might be, but we probably won’t see it on Real Housewives of Potomac. That said, RHOP is having a breakout season thanks to hands-on combat and verbal disputes.
Karen Huger is helping to keep Potomac above water. She emerged as a voice of reason after Monique Samuels finally succumbed to Candiace Dillard’s request to be dragged. She makes no bones about Gizelle Bryant’s
doomed reconciliation with Pastor Cheater Cheater Pumpkin Eater. But Dr. Wendy Osefo, BA, MSc, PhD’s scholarly boasting is getting on her final nerve. Now we learn the one thing Wendy does not have a degree in is going up against the Grand Dame.
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.
I am really enjoying Robyn Dixon this season on Real Housewives of Potomac. In previous seasons, Robyn’s storylines have been rather dull. During Season 4 of RHOP, Robyn
bored wowed us with how she flipped a house.
This season, Robyn is dealing with financial issues once again. She owes the IRS $90 thousand dollars in back taxes. I give Robyn credit for being honest about the situation and trying to remedy the debt. But how do you allegedly forget to pay your taxes?
Karen Huger is in a tough position this season on Real Housewives of Potomac. Her two closest
allies friends Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard got into a physical altercation. Now, the rest of the cast, is pushing Karen to pick a side.
She’s doing her best to help both women grow from the experience, but the Potomac Housewives just aren’t having it. They want Karen to quit straddling the fence and share her opinions.
Aaaaand the hits keep coming, both literally and figuratively for the Real Housewives of Potomac. Thanks to Monique Samuels not being the one to mess with, the ladies are enjoying a much publicized season. I suppose it would be unfair to give Monique all of the glory, Candiace Dillard’s mouth deserves acknowledgement as well. Right now much of the drama is centered around a physical fight, and Gizelle Bryant couldn’t be happier.
Fortunately for Gizelle, the more she talks about the violence between Candiace and Monique, the less she will have to talk about Pastor Jamal Bryant and his affinity for anointing more than one person at a time. Gizelle resides firmly on #teamcandiace and publicly blames Monique for the fight. Now she’s going the extra mile and claiming Mo wants to destroy Candiace’s life. Apparently Mortal Kombat doesn’t stop when the battle is over, at least not in Potomac.
Is anyone else experiencing altercation fatigue when it comes to Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett. The fight was intense and dramatic, but it’s almost all they talk about now. Do better Real Housewives Of Potomac. One new thing that actually might be brewing is a rift between Candiace & Karen Huger. It boils down to a different definition of friendship. What you expect your friend to do and what they actually do might be two different things.
It must be difficult for Karen to try to navigate between her two friends. However, at the end of the day, it was MONIQUE who crossed the line more than anyone else. She created the mess that has her on the outs with most of the cast. For them, it’s just too soon to start repairing and forgiving. If she lets it breathe a bit, she may be able to find her way in the group again. For now though, she needs to stop playing the victim.
At the beginning of Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5, the spotlight was on Ashley Darby and her confusing marriage with Michael Darby. Photos and videos circulated of Michael in a hotel room with another woman.
He claimed that he kissed her in the car en route to the hotel and that he merely fell asleep next to her. He alleged that nothing sexual happened between them. No one believes that. However, even if that was actually true, kissing another person and going to a hotel with her isn’t OK.
