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?
2020 is not going to end without one final act of drama from former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, NeNe Leakes. After Bravo said buh-bye, she spent an unusual amount of time bashing the network that made her rich and famous. The very same platform that afforded NeNe the opportunity to step outside of the Bravo universe and into the Hollywood scene.
Somewhere along the way NeNe changed. She held the same ability to provide good shade, but she became demanding. Fighting with her co-stars was the norm. It seemed NeNe allowed the level of fame she achieved to go to her head. NeNe received approximately $2.85 million to “share her life” on RHOA, and yet she still complained. Bravo finally pulled the plug on NeNe’s antics and she launched a campaign to crucify the network amid claims of racism and being “forced out”. But if you thought NeNe had calmed down and taken a seat, you would be wrong. Now she’s calling on viewers to boycott the show – because she says so.
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.
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.
How is it possible that this season of The Real Housewives Of Potomac is coming to an end? What a stellar season it has been. Top notch television from beginning to end. The fight between Monique Samuelsand Candiace Dillard Bassett changed everything though. There’s been a divide ever since, and that tension is about to boil over on this finale. It’s time for the men to get in on the action I suppose. Michael Darby, do your thing.
Candiace is questioning her friendship with Karen Huger now. At one point does straddling the line between two fighting friends become shady? Should she have to pick a side? Candiace certainly thinks so. After feeling set up at Karen’s wig party, it will be interesting to see where the two of them go from here. The damage is done because TRUST is broken.
The cast of Real Housewives of Potomac are on the verge of igniting. Since the fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard, sides have been taken. And there is a clear line between the ladies that have a zero tolerance policy for physical assault and those that see gray. Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, and Wendy Osefo are on the side of Candiace. Ashley Darby has isolated herself in Monique’s camp, while Karen Huger tried to play both sides.
All of this shimmering tension will come to a head on the season finale, when a fight breaks out between the Michael Darby and Chris Bassett. This altercation will include their wives, Ashley and Candiace. Of course, this was long overdue since Ashley confessed to writing a statement in defense of Monique. Candiace took the news relatively well when it was revealed in Portugal. But clearly there was no resolution, and Monique was not there to deal with the fallout either. So, with all of these issues simmering, it’s no wonder RHOP had an explosive reunion this season.
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.
