Nothing will ever be the same on Real Housewives of Potomac after that brutal fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard on October 16, 2019. Monique was charged with second-degree assault for grabbing Candiace by the hair and yanking her down on a table.
Naturally, Monique filed her own second-degree assault case, claiming that Candiace hit her in the face with a wine glass. All the charges were dismissed in December of 2019.
This season of Real Housewives of Potomac has a lot of drama, but viewers are waiting to see the tension between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett explode. Last season, a very pregnant Monique threatened to drag Candiace.
Unfortunately for Candiace, Monique supposedly kept her promise. On October 16, 2019 Candiace and Monique were at a dinner party with RHOP cast members. Monique allegedly grabbed Candiace by her hair, and yanked her down. And yes, Bravo’s cameras were rolling.
Some things never change on Real Housewives of Potomac. Once again, Season 5 has Ashley Darby’s marriage, and her husband Michael Darby, as a focal point of the drama. On the positive side of things, Ashley’s dreams of becoming a mother were fulfilled when she gave birth to their son, Dean, on July 7, 2019.
This couple has certainly weathered some marital storms. During the RHOP Season 2 reunion, Ashley announced that she and Michael had separated. Then they decided to reconcile.
Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 is on fire! Last season RHOP viewers watched Monique Samuels’ friendship with Candiace Dillard fizzle out. The duo supposedly made amends at the RHOP Season 4 reunion, but there is already tension brewing between them this season. I think that when Candiace challenged a pregnant Monique to drag her last season, it might have been foreshadowing what happens between the co-stars. Be careful what you wish for, Candiace!
On October 16, 2019 Monique allegedly grabbed Candiace by the hair and yanked her down. The altercation happened during a dinner party that was being filmed for RHOP. That’s right— Bravo cameras were rolling during the incident. Viewers will need to wait until later in the season to see the footage that Bravo captured.
Real Housewives of Potomac star Katie Rost appeared on Season 1 of the show and made her triumphant return last season. Katie seemed very different than the bubbly gown and gala mother of three that viewers met during the premiere season of the RHOP franchise. This season she seemed a bit erratic.
Katie was excluded from the RHOP reunion, and she was not happy about it. Ouch! Why would a Friend of the Housewives be denied a seat on the couch?
Oh, Ramona! Real Housewives of New York viewers are used to seeing Ramona Singer sometimes behave…well, rudely. It is part of her charm. Look at the way she always insists on getting the best room on RHONY getaways and orders the staff to help her unpack her belongings.
Ramona also has an issue with remembering the names of other Bravo celebrities that she has already met. And word on the street is that Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant has been the most recent victim of Ramona’s selective memory.
Season 4 of Real Housewives of Potomac did not disappoint. There was plenty of drama, and Candiace Dillard was involved in a lot of it. Candiace finally married Chris Bassett on August 11, 2018. Their wedding was gorgeous!
Candiace spent much of the season tracking RHOP co-star Ashley Darby’s alcohol consumption. Ashley told her fellow Potomac Housewives that she was cutting out alcohol because she and her husband, Michael Darby, were trying to conceive. I really enjoy drunk Ashley, and she did make a lot of appearances during the season. Candiace was on serious womb watch, and she found it fake that Ashley was drinking while talking about conceiving again after her miscarriage.
This season of Real Housewives of Potomac has centered around Ashley Darby, and her husband, Michael Darby. More specifically, it has been laser-focused on Michael’s alleged inability to keep his hands to himself. And away from other men’s butts. Speculating about Michael’s sexuality, and the Darby’s marriage, has been a full-time job for the other Potomac ladies.
At a RHOP party earlier in the season, Michael complimented another man on his physique. Later that night, when everyone was drunk, Robin Dixon and Candiace Dillard heard Michael tell a man that he would “suck his d*ck.” That was shocking.
