Candiace Dillard Bassett

Monique Samuels Real Housewives Of Potomac

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.

I have said it before and will say it again – if you’re not watching Real Housewives of Potomac, you are seriously missing out. Run, don’t walk, to season 1 and catch up immediately if you have to. For god’s sake, just get on board with this franchise. It’s so, so good.

One of the central story lines from RHOP this season is the physical fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett. We’ve been hearing it in the news, thanks to charges being filed by the both of them. But, no have finally seen what really happened.

There’s a big fight feel in the air for this new episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac. It’s been brewing for so long. We all knew it was coming. However, that doesn’t lessen the electricity in the air surrounding the feud between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett. This has been one of the greatest builds to an epic moment in the history of Housewives. That’s on period.

This one moment is going to send shockwaves through this group. For the most part, things are semi stable in this circle of women for a change. There’s no telling what’s going to happen once a physical altercation breaks out. It’s going to alter everything. People are going to pick sides. Allegiances will be made, and relationships will never be the same again. Here we go. 

Monique Samuels’ Bird Is Selling Merchandise Now

Few franchises have captured my heart in the way that Real Housewives of Potomac has. While the first season left many confused about the point of the show, season 2 was some of the finest housewives content we’ve seen in a long time.

This season is no exception. Other franchises get caught up in beating the same storyline over and over for an entire season. Where RHOP gets it right is that they move from argument to argument seamlessly. The show is always giving us new content to look forward to along with breakout stars. Gizelle Bryant is a messy but lovable friend. Candiace Dillard is the unchallenged villain. Karen Huger has a knack for both inserting herself in drama while staying out of it. And let us not forget her epic press conference without press. Truly a moment of reality TV gold.

We have all been waiting for that physical altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. It has been teased for what feels like forever, but we didn’t get to it yet. Nevertheless, we have seen many cracks in their relationship this season on Real Housewives of Potomac.

Now, Gizelle Bryant is weight in on the dust up. And, obviously, she just had to throw in some shade aimed at Monique.

Ashley Darby Real Housewives Of Potomac

Another Michael Darby scandal is upon us on The Real Housewives Of Potomac. Ashley Darby’s husband is the gift that keeps on giving. Season after season, he’s serving us scandal after scandal. This time the scandal fell right into Candiace Dillard Bassett’s lap, and the tea is HOT. Michael was allegedly at a strip club talking about having both a boyfriend and a wife. Does Ashley know he has a boyfriend?

Besides the Michael stuff, the tension is mounting between Monique Samuels and Candiace. Every week, you can feel it getting closer to their physical encounter. There is so much animosity just bubbling beneath the surface. It’s only a matter of time before it boils over. As the season progresses, my own personal allegiance has shifted when it comes to this feud. Too many underhanded tactics by one of the parties has me severely questioning their authenticity.

The Real Housewives of Potomac cast are still at Monique Samuels‘s lake house for tonight’s episode. However, the husbands show up to shake things up. Well, almost all of them show up. Chris Bassett, Chris Samuels, Juan Dixon, Edward Osefo, and Ray Huger come through. Gizelle Bryant’s ex-husband/current boyfriend Pastor Jamal Bryant is in Atlanta. And, Ashley Darby’s husband Michael Darby is “with clients.”
Meanwhile, this text that Candiace Dillard got claiming that Michael has “a boyfriend a wife” finally comes up in conversation after way too many episodes of teasing us. How will Ashley react? Well, given the way they’ve been able to move past numerous scandals and the fact that they are expecting their second child together, it’s fair to assume they worked past Michael’s latest scandal.
Michael is basically a full-time Real Housewives of Potomac cast member at this point. His shenanigans are the gift that keeps on giving. He definitely provides the most to the show in terms of storylines, up to this point at least.
