Is anyone else experiencing altercation fatigue when it comes to Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett. The fight was intense and dramatic, but it’s almost all they talk about now. Do better Real Housewives Of Potomac. One new thing that actually might be brewing is a rift between Candiace & Karen Huger. It boils down to a different definition of friendship. What you expect your friend to do and what they actually do might be two different things.
It must be difficult for Karen to try to navigate between her two friends. However, at the end of the day, it was MONIQUE who crossed the line more than anyone else. She created the mess that has her on the outs with most of the cast. For them, it’s just too soon to start repairing and forgiving. If she lets it breathe a bit, she may be able to find her way in the group again. For now though, she needs to stop playing the victim.
At the beginning of Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5, the spotlight was on Ashley Darby and her confusing marriage with Michael Darby. Photos and videos circulated of Michael in a hotel room with another woman.
He claimed that he kissed her in the car en route to the hotel and that he merely fell asleep next to her. He alleged that nothing sexual happened between them. No one believes that. However, even if that was actually true, kissing another person and going to a hotel with her isn’t OK.
The fight has happened on The Real Housewives Of Potomac, but the drama’s just beginning. Dealing with the aftermath of Monique Samuels vs Candiace Dillard Bassett is equally emotionally taxing. We now know that Candiace is seeking legal action for what went down. This is going to send shockwaves into the group. The women are going to have a lot of opinions about this, and Candiace likely won’t like them.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens with Monique moving forward. There’s multiple group events moving forward, but she might not be at any of them. What does this mean for her friendships with Karen Huger and Ashley Darby? They’re the only ones on her side right now. She needs them in order to retain a place in this group. If one of them turns on her in the coming weeks, it’s DONEZO for T’Challa’s mommy.
This has been a break out season for Real Housewives of Potomac. But people aren’t watching for the touching and tender storylines. The reason why everyone is glued to RHOP is due to the smackdown Monique Samuels gave to Candiace Dillard. It was violent. It wasn’t pretty. It also could have been avoided. This has definitely been an occasion where viewers have taken sides. Additionally, it appears the cast takes sides as well.
All of us functioning grown people realize Candiace saying, “Drag me, Monique” was not a literal request to be led across the floor by her hair. But sometimes a smart mouth can get you in trouble. And sometimes a smart mouth can get you an ass-whipping. After the spanking Candiace received, a couple of the ladies felt Monique went from Housewife to liability. Monique fell under the impression that some of her co-workers wanted her banished from the show, but Robyn Dixon is now saying that is fake news.
Raise your hand if you’re watching Bravo’s Chat Room, I’ll wait. The new nightly talk show is hosted by various Bravolebrities. Porsha Williams is representing Real Housewives of Atlanta, much to NeNe Leakes’ dismay. Hannah Berner from Summer House holds a spot. Gizelle Bryant from Real Housewives of Potomac and Below Deck alum Kate Chastain round out the rest of the cast. They dish about subjects related to pop culture and of course Bravo
Bravo fucking Bravo. As you may know, Real Housewives of New York is getting a new cast member. Eboni K. Williams is preparing for her first season and she’s the first black cast member of RHONY.
Eboni will be a huge asset in several ways. She is a lawyer, honey. So out of the gate you know she can talk. Gizelle is particularly pleased to see Eboni come on board. See, Giz has beef with Ramona Singer. Ramona shooed Giz out of a photo in July 2019 and the incident has been burned in Gizelle’s brain ever since. Not much can get under Ramona’s very renewed skin, but Gizelle is hoping Eboni manages to provide a challenge for the veteran and just maybe send the Ramonacoaster off the rails.
Other than Karen Huger and Ashley Darby, the Real Housewives of Potomac cast members are all against Monique Samuels after she put her hands on Candiace Dillard (and refused to let go of her hair).
The group (minus Candiace) had a sit-down with Monique, which took up an entire episode. Gizelle Bryant walked out for attention with her faux bodyguard. Robyn Dixon wasn’t pulling any punches (metaphorically) when Monique said she had “no remorse.” Wendy Osefo continued to remind us of her resumé like she does during every single episode. In real time, Monique and Wendy are at odds on social media.
Real Housewives of Potomac is on the radar. Unfortunately, RHOP isn’t in the news because of very rich people living very fabulous lives. Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard rearranged some furniture with their body parts during what was supposed to be a celebratory moment for Gizelle Bryant. What transpired after the beatdown will shape the remainder of the season.
Physical violence is never the answer, unless someone comes for your child or your dog, but people aren’t giving Candiace the sympathy she wants. Candiace’s “thing” is running her mouth and she has previously
been popped faced consequences for not knowing when to quit. Monique displayed a distinct lack of remorse for almost turning Candiace into a patient. Now Monique wants to own her part in the fiasco that finally put Potomac on the map.
The Real Housewives of Potomac will never be the same because of THE FIGHT. Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett’s feud went to the ultimate level, and everything is forever altered. You can feel how fractured the group is because of this vicious incident. However, Monique has yet to show any remorse for her actions. Until that happens, things won’t be able to move forward in any way.
To this point, neither woman involved in the altercation wants to take any blame. Something has to give. Someone needs to be the bigger person and accept their role in what went down. Given she was aggressor, we’ve likely seen the last of Monique’s group scenes. It’s a shame how low things got and how toxic they’ve become. The next big question is if Candiace is willing to press charges. That’s a massive step.
