The final reunion episode has aired and I think we’re all already having Real Housewives of Potomac withdrawals. This franchise never fails to bring it. The drama in one episode of Potomac could sustain an entire season of RHOC. Don’t @ me.
Aside from the physical altercation between Candiace Dillard Bassett and Monique Samuels, the major story line of the season was, once again, Michael Darby’s shenanigans. This dude just loves a low-down booty grab.
Well folks, THIS IS IT. We have reached the end of the road for this season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. It felt like this day would never come. One of the best seasons of Housewives in recent memory. The fight between Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett was one of the most talked about moments EVER. Top tier television.
When we last left the women, Candiace was rushing off set in tears after discussing the fight. Monique however remained emotionless and matter of fact about the altercation. The two contrasting reactions to reliving the events was fascinating to watch. This time, the husbands are joining the women on stage, so hopefully things don’t get too out of control. Although, how bad can it get with creepy Michael Darby out of the picture this time?
This Real Housewives of Potomac reunion is getting nasty really quickly. Monique Samuels’ binder is going to go down in Housewives infamy. Has anyone else ever brought such thorough receipts to shut someone down the way she did Gizelle Bryant. The way she openly read off Jamal Bryant’s phone number was iconic because everyone knows that relationship is a sham. She made the alleged cheating rumors seem a lot more plausible.
We didn’t get much interaction between Monique and Candiace Dillard Bassett on last week’s Real Housewives of Potomac reunion episode. However, all of that is going to change. We’re finally going to dive into THE fight that changed everything on Real Housewives of Potomac. Both of these women have had a lot to say in the last year. Now though, all of that talk is coming to a head because we’re going to hopefully get some real answers.
For some reason, Bravo’s Chat Room hasn’t been canceled
yet. Despite serving up sub-par entertainment, the show is stirring up some drama.
Porsha Williams defended her good friend Monique Samuels amidst Monique’s ongoing feud with Candiace Dillard. And, well, Candiace didn’t take too kindly to that.
Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac was on fire. Much of the season was driven by the ugly physical confrontation between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels.
The incident occurred at a RHOP party in October of 2019 while the cameras were rolling. After the fight, Monique and Candiace slapped each other with second-degree assault charges. In December of 2019, both charges were dismissed.
When Garcelle Beauvais asked Erika Jayne about her sex life with husband Tom Girardi on the most recent season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika replied “It’s OK,” which reminded me of when Candiace Dillard said her sex life with her man Chris Bassett was “decent” during the Real Housewives of Potomac Season 4 reunion.
Then, she told Garcelle, “Is it 20 year old f*cking all day long? No.” When Garcelle followed up with “But, do you want that,” Erika said, “Not really.” Well, apparently, Tom did. Or at least that’s the story
that Erika planted that “inside sources” are going with today.
Of course, the Reality Tea team understands being very invested in reality TV content. We enthusiastically cover reality TV shows and the stars’ off-camera activities. However, there’s a difference between being very invested and going too far.
There is NEVER a reason to wish death on a reality TV star, yet it happens so often from faceless, anonymous social media users. This is not at-all-acceptable and Real Housewives of Potomac star Robyn Dixon is tired of the hatred.
The moment has finally arrived. The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion is here. For the first time in over a year, Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett are in the same room. There is a lot to unpack between those two. The fight changed everything. Finally, we are going to hear both sides of the story with both there to hash it out. This is highly anticipated. It doesn’t get bigger than this for a Housewives fan.
Someone who should be nervous at this reunion is Gizelle Bryant. She was extra messy this season, and many of the women are going to want to hold her accountable. You can only get away with shady underhanded tactics for so long before people fight back. Karen Huger always has Gizelle’s number so I expect her to be front and center as the ringleader of a possible Gizelle takedown.
