There has been a ton of drama this season on Real Housewives of Potomac. The one moment that defined the season was the physical altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard. Bravo cameras rolled during the incident. It was horrible, violent, and difficult to watch.
Candiace filed a case against Monique for second degree assault. After, Monique filed one against Candiace for the same. Luckily, a judge dismissed both cases.
Gizelle Bryant might not have thrown any bows so far on Real Housewives of Potomac, but she has not emerged unscathed from this season. A lot of Gizelle’s storyline revolved around
money laundering protecting her relationship with Jamal Bryant. You know, the ex-husband who cheated on her, fathered children with other women, and claims to be a man of God. This is the same guy Giz said she would never get back with who now apparently lives in her phone.
Because so much of the ladies’ time was devoted to taking sides between Monique “Don’t Ask Me Twice” Samuels and Candiace “I’m Not Asking For It But I’m Totally Asking For It” Bassett, other content was overlooked. Lest viewers forget, Gizelle is… a BUSINESSWOMAN. But is she though? Fans remember the birth of EveryHue Beauty in 2016 and not much since then. Now we might need to bid adieu to EveryHue. Friends, The Grand Dame has something to say.
How crazy is it that this season of The Real Housewives of Potomac is almost over? WHAT A SEASON IT HAS BEEN. Whew. I don’t think I’ve ever fully recovered from that blowout altercation between Candiace Dillard Bassett & Monique Samuels. It’s so toxic, and honestly sucked all of the energy out of me. Although, nothing reinvigorates me with life more than Karen Huger launching a new business. Bless Karen and all of her wigs.
Karen has been stuck between Candiace and Monique for weeks now. No matter what she says or does, someone doesn’t like it. Candiace doesn’t fully trust her anymore. This wig event is set to be a crucial moment in their friendship. Karen alleges that Monique is NOT on the guest list. The majority of the group was more than pleased with that revelation. However, if Karen does decide to include Mo, prepare for all hell to break loose.
Currently, Candiace Dillard’s biggest adversary is Monique Samuels, followed close behind by Ashley Darby.
Last season on Real Housewives of Potomac, Candiace’s biggest foe was her own mother, Dorothy Dillard, even though she Wass paying Candiace’s bills. Dorothy tried to get Candiace to uninvited her half-brother from her wedding. She also slapped Candiace in the face with a big purse during a disagreement. Dorothy and Candiace had so much drama last season that Dorothy got her own segment on the reunion.
Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac has been on fire! Nearly every cast member has a story line this season. RHOP newbie Wendy Osefo flaunted all of her degrees and squabbled with Grande Dame Karen Huger. Karen was dealing with the shifting dynamics in her marriage to Ray Huger. Ray isn’t used to an independent wife who is focused on her perfume business.
Ashley Darby was adjusting to motherhood, and once again, dealing with her husband Michael Darby’s inability to keep it in his pants. This time, Michael
slept with fell asleep next to another woman at a hotel. But don’t worry-Michael assured his wife that nothing happened. Umm…okay.
We’re all pretty familiar with the very basic rules of human nature. One of the first things we learn is not to put our hands on people. Most of us are also told early on to watch what we say. Because in some areas if you are going to talk that talk, please be prepared to walk that walk. That seems to be the overall lesson on this season of Real Housewives of Potomac.
Candiace Dillard was involved in a physical fight with Monique Samuels. Candiace has a mouth on her and uses it frequently. Despite having a run in with her mother’s purse, and Monique’s hands, Candiace seems mostly unafraid to talk that talk. No one will dispute that violence is never the answer, but words are a weapon all on their own. In August, Candiace had some words for blogger, Khyle Paylor, who seemingly sided with Monique in the dispute. Candiace insulted the man physically and wished death on him as well. Sadly, Khyle has passed away. Candiace must have been absent the day we were learning to watch what we say.
Real Housewives viewers have seen the demise of many marriages play out on screen. Ramona Singer’s ex-husband Mario Singer cheated on her. There was some cheating in Luann de Lesseps‘ marriages… both of them.
Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice couldn’t get past their legal issues and cheating allegations. Now, there’s apparently a new cheating scandal brewing with one of the other Real Housewives husbands.
It’s time to escape with The Real Housewives of Potomac and head to Portugal! It’s about time we get out of that city this season, and take a break from the drama. The saga between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett has become too much. It’s all we ever hear about, and it’s time to let the mouse go. It was a little surprising to see Monique press charges against because she was the violent one herself.
Hopefully this trip will not end the same way for Ashley Darby that the last one did. Michael Darby has a hard time staying on his best behavior. No matter how hard Ashley tries to save the marriage, Michael always does something to screw it up. He is the king at getting into messy situations. The stakes are so much higher now because of the baby, but he still can’t be bothered to care. Let’s hope he keeps it in his pants this time!
