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.
Season 5 of Real Housewives of Potomac has been on fire! Nearly every cast member has a story line this season. RHOP newbie Wendy Osefo flaunted all of her degrees and squabbled with Grande Dame Karen Huger. Karen was dealing with the shifting dynamics in her marriage to Ray Huger. Ray isn’t used to an independent wife who is focused on her perfume business.
Ashley Darby was adjusting to motherhood, and once again, dealing with her husband Michael Darby’s inability to keep it in his pants. This time, Michael
slept with fell asleep next to another woman at a hotel. But don’t worry-Michael assured his wife that nothing happened. Umm…okay.
It’s been weeks since the fight between Monique Samuels & Candiace Dillard Bassett. However, the altercation is almost ALL anyone is talking about on The Real Housewives of Potomac. Does anyone else have fatigue from this assault talk? We get it. We know what happened. Either they find a way to move past it, or one of them needs to leave the group. Monique is so isolated and on an island right now, so maybe she should go.
Tensions are only going to escalate though because Monique is going to file a counter suit. No idea why or what grounds. Everyone with eyeballs saw that Monique is the one who took things to the next level. For her to have the audacity to then try to become the victim is mind blowing. The charges for both end up dropped, but this is going to be quite the journey it seems.
Real Housewives of Potomac viewers have been worried about the status of Karen Huger and her husband, Ray Huger’s, marriage this season. They seemed awkward together.
Much of Season 3 revolved around what Karen and Ray were trying to hide about their finances. Was Karen actually living in a mansion in Great Falls, or crashing at a condo? A pizza delivery from RHOP co-stars Ashley Darby, Gizelle Bryant, and Robyn Dixon attempted to reveal the truth, but no one came to the door.
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.
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.
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.
We all know how much Cynthia Bailey wanted to marry Mike Hill. Even before he popped the question, she was talking about their upcoming wedding. She even created her own (over-used) hashtag #Chill, which was clever at first, but got played out after its excessive use.
Now, it’s official. Cynthia did something that no other Real Housewife has done before- she got married twice on the show. And, no, those ill-fated vow renewals don’t count. Hopefully, the day went better than when she married Peter Thomas. Her sister hid their marriage license, making it clear that both she and her mother disapproved of the union. Clearly, their instincts were on point with that one.
