This season of Real Housewives of Potomac has a lot of drama, but viewers are waiting to see the tension between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett explode. Last season, a very pregnant Monique threatened to drag Candiace.
Unfortunately for Candiace, Monique supposedly kept her promise. On October 16, 2019 Candiace and Monique were at a dinner party with RHOP cast members. Monique allegedly grabbed Candiace by her hair, and yanked her down. And yes, Bravo’s cameras were rolling.
Some things never change on Real Housewives of Potomac. Once again, Season 5 has Ashley Darby’s marriage, and her husband Michael Darby, as a focal point of the drama. On the positive side of things, Ashley’s dreams of becoming a mother were fulfilled when she gave birth to their son, Dean, on July 7, 2019.
This couple has certainly weathered some marital storms. During the RHOP Season 2 reunion, Ashley announced that she and Michael had separated. Then they decided to reconcile.
Monique Samuels girl’s trip is having a lot of unintended consequences. Did anyone expect Wendy Osefo to lose it like that on Ashley Darby? The newbie came in so hot. The Real Housewives of Potomac deliver each and every week, and this one will be no exception. The dinner is in the midst of pure chaos, and the doctor is educating everyone on how to read. However, Ashley isn’t some wallflower, so she’ll bite back.
Speaking of Ashley, it seems like an annual tradition for her husband Michael Darby to get caught in a scandal. This time it’s current frenemy Candiace Dillard Bassett getting the piping hot tea on our favorite Aussie. Michael is going to have a lot of explaining to do after a photo surfaces of him at a strip club trying to procure girls back to his room. Will he ever learn? One day Ashley should do everyone a favor and admit they have an “arrangement”.
The Real Housewives Of Potomac are heading to Monique Samuels’ lake house for a girl’s trip. So many issues are bubbling beneath the surface that are bound to appear on the trip. If Candiace Dillard Bassett chooses to attend, she might be on the receiving end of another “gang-up”. We are getting closer to the fight between her and Monique. The tension keeps rising every episode.
On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace got lit into by Gizelle Bryant. People don’t take kindly to her attacks on Twitter. They want her to be accountable for the things she says and does. With Monique, Gizelle, and Ashley Darby all on the trip, Candiace better be on her best behavior. This episode is also the most the group will have interacted with new wife Wendy Osefo. From the preview, she brings it.
Monique Samuels invites the Real Housewives of Potomac cast members to her lake house. Ashley Darby brings her baby Dean on the trip, which doesn’t sit well with new Housewife Wendy Osefo, who just gave birth to her third child. She questions Ashley for bringing the baby and the argument escalates.
That’s not Ashley’s only issue on this trip though. Candiace Dillard gets some tea about Ashley’s husband Michael Darby’s good time at a strip club, which she shares with Gizelle Bryant.
Stop sleeping on The Real Housewives of Potomac. They have everything you could possibly want in a reality show. Every episode is a perfect balance of humor, drama, and real moments. The largest focus of the season thus far appears to be on the budding feud between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett. We know it ends in a massive physical altercation, but the spoilers don’t make it any less interesting.
Last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac saw major progress in the friendship of Candiace and Ashley Darby. They won’t be best friends anytime soon but being able to talk calmly is a great first step. Candiace is feuding with everyone this season it seems. A focus of this episode is supposed to be about her calling Gizelle Bryant a monster. Where is the lie in that label?
I love when a new Real Housewife joins a show and feigns a close connection to a current cast member. We all know that a casting agent most likely brought a woman onto the show. Instead, we have to pretend that two people are friends when they might have met once or they have one mutual friend in common.
Unfortunately for Wendy Osefo, she joined Real Housewives of Potomac as a friend of Candiace Dillard’s, who has been very polarizing (which is a nice way to put it). Even so, she has been very impressive so far, despite whatever shade Karen Huger wants to throw in her direction.
Recently, the Bravo network has come down on its talent for offensive social media posts. Vanderpump Rules fired Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens for their racist tweets that resurfaced from years prior. Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Pete Hunziker got fired from the show, and subsequently edited out of the show after sharing a racist “joke” and then his follow-up tweets didn’t help the situation.
So, what’s going to happen to Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Candiace Dillard? Her homophobic and transphobic tweets recently came to light. In response, she issued an apology talking about how much she’s changed, promising that she is an LGBTQIA+ ally, despite her past sentiments. As of this moment, Bravo, a network that has touted itself as being supportive of the LGBTQIA+ community, has been silent on this. Could that be because Candiace brings so much drama to Real Housewives of Potomac? She, just like the others, issued apologies for her horrendous comments. However, she has faced absolutely zero consequences.
