When Candiace Dillard joined Real Housewives of Potomac she hit it off with Monique Samuels immediately. Last season, Monique joined the cast as a friend of Charrisse Jackson-Jordan’s. With that said, she expected her old friend and her new friend to get along.
Unfortunately for Monique, that’s not what happened. Charrisse asked Candiace if Candiace’s mother paid for her engagement ring. Candiace described that question as a “shady bitch” comment. Charrisse got offended by the description. Candiace hurled some age-centered insults at Charrisse. And then Monique was left in the middle. If she took up for Charrisse she could be viewed as a bad friend to Candiace. If she stood up for Candiace, she could have seemed disloyal to Charrisse.
After some lunchtime cocktails, Monique Samuels dozed off behind the wheel and got into a car accident. As a result, the Housewives wondered if Monique has a drinking problem during the last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac.
So of course Andy Cohen asked Monique about those accusations when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night. It was actually his first question for her.
If you’ve been watching Real Housewives of Potomac since season one, it’s expected that Gizelle Bryant will not like the New Housewife. Instead of assuming Gizelle is difficult, let’s play devil’s advocate here. Are they just intentionally casting people assuming that their personalities will clash with Gizelle’s? It is possible, but it is not likely.
Gizelle spent most of last season feuding with Charrisse Jackson-Jordan. She even accused Charrisse of having an affair with a fireman. Now, she is on Charrisse’s side this year. Maybe it just has something to do with seniority among the cast members. Charrisse was blatantly trying to insult new cast member Candiace Dillard by asking if her mother bought her engagement ring. Candiace referred to it as a “shady bitch comment”- which it was. Nevertheless, Gizelle is going to bat for Charrisse and insists that Candiace owes Charrisse an apology.
Even though this is only the third season of Real Housewives of Potomac, the viewers should expect Gizelle Bryant to take issue with the newest Housewife every single year. It happened with Ashley Darby Season 1, Monique Samuels during Season 2, and now Candiace Dillard is caught in the crossfire during Season 3.
Gizelle wasn’t the only one coming for Candiace though. Charrisse Jackson-Jordan– who isn’t even a full-time cast member this season- asked Candiace if her mother paid for her engagement ring during the last episode. Obviously she was trying to stir shit up and she knew exactly what she was doing, but she wouldn’t own it, and Candiace unleashed on her for what Candiace described as a “shady bitch” comment.
If anyone should welcome the arrival of Candiace Dillard to Real Housewives of Potomac, it’s Karen Huger. Now that Candiace is on the scene talking about the color of her fiancé Chris Bassett’s penis, the women have stopped gossiping about Karen’s man Ray Huger’s financial issues.
Candiace has been telling anyone who will listen that her white boyfriend has a “brown dick,” which is a very…. interesting move to make as the new girl in the cast.
After the Uber comment controversy, NeNe Leakes is back at it with her comedy show. Her latest show went down in Washington, D.C. and she had her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Cynthia Bailey on hand for support.
Real Housewives of Potomac cast members Karen Huger, Candiace Dilliard, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, and Monique Samuels turned the comedy show into an Atlanta/Potomac crossover by showing up to support NeNe as well. Karen’s husband Ray Huger, Candiace’s fiancé Chris Bassett, and Monique’s husband Chris Samuels were also on hand to check out NeNe doing her thing in the nation’s Capitol.
It probably wasn’t the best idea for Robyn Dixon to confront Monique Samuels at Monique’s party in her own home during the last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac. She could have just called her out during a one-on-one lunch that they could have expensed to the production company.
It also didn’t make sense for Robyn to beef with Monique over something that was posted on a fan page, but then again, this is a Housewives show, so it would have been a boring episode if everyone just had a fun time at the party. Robyn’s partner in crime Gizelle Bryant did not like Monique from the second she came on the scene last season, so maybe Robyn and Monique just dislike each other by association? This just seems like a pretty random feud.
