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?
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.
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.
The Portugal fun is almost over for The Real Housewives of Potomac. It was a much needed vacation away from the chaotic drama back home. However, the fun and excitement is about to come to a screeching halt. Ashley Darby wrote a statement against Candiace Dillard Bassett on behalf of Monique Samuels. Once Candiace learns this bit of information, the current peace in the group is over.
There’s an underlying level of tension in the group ever since the incident at the barn. In a perfect world, people shouldn’t have to take sides when something like this goes down. However, it’s not a perfect world. Both Candiace and Monique want people within the group to see things from their POV. Unfortunately for Candiace, Monique may be winning over Karen Huger. La Dame might actually be La Backstabber.
Portugal is the much needed reset The Real Housewives of Potomac needed to move on from the fight. I understand the altercation between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett was a big deal. However, they can’t let that one incident drag down the entire season. Letting loose and having some fun even if it’s just temporary, lightens everything in a big way.
We last left these lovely ladies with Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger at odds. They each want to meddle in the other’s relationship, and it’s a vicious cycle. They’ve been throwing digs at each other for five seasons now, and it never changes. One day it might boil over and reach the point of no return, but for now, let’s enjoy the back and forth shade. Jamal Bryant isn’t around ever, but is it Karen’s place to call that out?
It’s time to escape with The Real Housewives of Potomac and head to Portugal! It’s about time we get out of that city this season, and take a break from the drama. The saga between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett has become too much. It’s all we ever hear about, and it’s time to let the mouse go. It was a little surprising to see Monique press charges against because she was the violent one herself.
Hopefully this trip will not end the same way for Ashley Darby that the last one did. Michael Darby has a hard time staying on his best behavior. No matter how hard Ashley tries to save the marriage, Michael always does something to screw it up. He is the king at getting into messy situations. The stakes are so much higher now because of the baby, but he still can’t be bothered to care. Let’s hope he keeps it in his pants this time!
