‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ Star Candiace Dillard is Considering Suing Monique Samuels

“Real Housewives of Potomac” star Candiace Dillard appeared on V-103’s “The Morning Culture” recently. And she and her attorney addressed the altercation.

When Frank Ski asked what happened, Candiace says, “But I will ask you this question. You have children, yes? So when your children were young and wanted attention, what did they do?” Frank answers, “Act out.” Then Candiace says, “That’s what I’ll say. Some people like to act out for attention.”

Frank then asks who pulled whose hair. Candiace says, “What do you think? You spoke on my resume, you spoke on who I am and you see I am. What Frank Ski do you think? What do you think?” She says that her mother taught her “home training.” She adds, “I was attacked. I did not attack. I was attacked.”

Candiace then goes on to say she can’t believe things played out the way they did. In Candiace’s opinion, RHOP represents the “elite of black royalty.” And it goes against her “morals and values.”

Her lawyer James Walker then steps in and says, “You can’t assault someone. In America, we have laws called assault and battery. You can’t just assault somebody. So during a taping, if you decide to reach across the table and grab Frank Ski and pull him across and slam him down and the five people in this room have to get me off you, that’s assault and battery. And you can’t just do that. So that’s what we have here.”

When Frank brings up the fact that many people believe Candiace has also displayed violent behavior on the show, her attorney says that viewers only see the “edits” made by producers and they don’t get to see the “full context” of Candiace’s character.

Right now, Candiace is considering filing a civil suit against Monique. And they are waiting for Bravo to release the footage. They also think Monique should apologize.

    Umm but what was the last bit about Chris B in court for domestic violence? Candiace said it wasn’t her so then who was it? His ex-wife? Whew, the next season is going to be a huge mess.

      Watched the video and I’m wondering about that too. I hope Candiace isn’t out here shaming Monique about violence if her and her hubby aren’t any better.

        Candiace and her husband needs money, so she feels this would be a great quick way to get it! I may have ignored the part about Candiace throwing water in Monique’s face during the interview with her lawyer…or was it totally omitted by the lawyer? He sounds like someone who needs money, and decided to take this case for that reason, knowing Candiace has no win.

    Candiace loves to speak classism rhetoric but fails to own her own classless behavior.

      It is time to dismiss Candiace. She is an embrmarassment to African American women everywhere. She attempts to stay relevant on RHOP by throwing crazy fits, being aggressive and provoking physical altercations. She regressed Monique. Now tell me ladies, if you were violently agressed,would you just meekly turn the other cheek. I do not think so. Not even the most diplomatic woman could “go high” under he circumstances. Get rid of this muckraker and bring dignity back to the RHOP!Bravo stop the madness!!!

        The producers of these reality shows understands what sells…s-x, muckrakers, and hungry women whose “dignity” is set in “default” mode! If you act as if you have real class and dignity, the producers have no use for you, because you are not generating revenue for them. I really hope Candiace is the highest paid on the show, because she has lost all dignity!

        I totally agree with you Gail. Candace is out of her league, everyone is tired of seeing this temper tantrum throwing child on this #grown woman show #RHOP

        Absolutely. Candya-s is an embarrassment to the human race. She’s a crybaby b-tch who got a deserved a-s whopping

    So this is just a money grab for Candiace. Odd since she and her mother have been portraying themselves to be so wealthy.

      Candice needs to go somewhere. She’s lucky she only got dragged. She threw not only a drink but the glass at Monique. Not sure why she thinks she can’t be sued as well. She’s a bratty little annoying heifer absess anyone siding with her is a fool. She’s embarrassed, take the lose and move on and keep your drink to yourself. Next time it could be much worse .

    Candiace must have really gotten her ssss handed to her because she won’t shut up! go do what you feel you need to do and stop doing interviews .. it’s just a tactic that, she thinks she’s scaring Monique …trust me Monique and husband are ready !!!!!

    • Sandra

      December 10, 2019 at 6:48 pm

      Camryn, you better know it….and the little troll can take that to the bank, because she want get any money! She once told her mother that she and Chris were ready to handle their own finances, so the mother may let her/them fight this battle alone! Time to grow up lil girl!

        Candice and her husband need money
        since they are having to handle their own finances. Candice has always been a bully on the show she brings nothing to the show.I wouldn’t give that little bad ass nothing.Watch the episode where tells Ashley to get out her house and she grabs the knife. She will try and sue Bravo next anything for a dollar

    This is clearly fake. How many times have we seen someone suing another cast member on RHOA? RHOP are no different. They will make up at the reunion -_- corny

    • Me

      December 10, 2019 at 8:56 pm

      How broke she gotta be to sue tho lol… Candice is my least fave a childish brat

    • Katherine Mitchell

      December 11, 2019 at 9:33 am

      No,this isn’t fake news. Candice needs a storyline to stay relevant. She’s too lazy, pampered, and privileged to work. Her mother is sick of paying the bills for her & her husband.Now she’s trying to take money from Monique. Candice has deserved an a-s beating since her 1st day on the show.Monique refused to accept her pretense of being hard like the other women did. I wish I could have beat her a-s for Monique. It was long over due. Now Candice is whining like the petty little b-tch she is.

    These people that are coming on these sitcoms need to see Jesus I don’t care how prestigious you think you are if you not from the royal family which is our Lord Savoir Jesus Christ at the end he’s not going to look at how much money you got who you know who you been working for who your parents been working for yousre going to have to stand in judgment for everything we do no one will be left out it doesn’t matter how much you have are who you know if you’re lying God knows the word
    God says whatever is done in the dark shall be revealed to the light Miss Candice how Anderson are you,you threw a knife at a woman so you are not so innocent you both need to repent and seek the kingdom of God at all time, you come up on these sitcoms putting on a show look foolish and throw your business out there to the world and then try to cry innocent just to get paid,at the end of it all we are going to have to stand before God and guess what if you’re not straight and clean with him it not going to make a difference who did what keep that in mind God bless both of you I’m praying for both of you

        Wow! Candiace is still trying to stretch her 15minute of er “fame!” But it isn’t working! Instead, fans of the show are getting progressively annoyed with her for her immaturity and addiction to media attention. I’ve been suggesting to fire her to get this over with but no one’s listening. Believe me, she won’t be missed.

    Thank you Ms.HighlyFavor so true Candice had to get her butt beaten really bad for her to get a lawsuit against Monique all that stuff that Candice to people now when someone comes for her she is calling the POLICE… Lol SMH sad!!!😥

    Unless I missed it, this interview doesn’t address what led up that moment. Monique was defending herself if in fact Candiace did throw a drink/glass in her face during an argument. Another thing…. Elite black royalty?? Full stop. That’s a stretch. You are not Nikki Giovanni or Dr Ruth Simmons. Nor are you anywhere near the likes of Marian Wright Edelman or Dr Johnetta B Cole. Candiace has an adopted heir of importance that does not sit in reality.

  10. MissKitty

    December 11, 2019 at 4:56 am

    Candiace can’t sue no one. Even though Candiace is in need of Money’s Candiace assault Monique if anything Monique have ground to sue Candiace for assault Candiace never received and A-s whooping like that before. That what’s getting to Candiace. Get over it Monique must have beat her like a runaway slave. Can’t wait to see that episode Lol 😆

    Girl have a seat .If you threw a a butter knife at Ashley. In your mommas house.You’ll throw a drink.Which I’d done more than pulled you by ponytail. Hope Monique Sue’s you for everything your momma’s net worth .Cause only money you got is from this show.

    Candice has some emotional issues, I don’t know if it is from her relationship with her mother but she has them. She told her mother hit her with purse, mother said not true, she went after someone in her home with a knife, she is always trying to sell wolf tickets, and Moe didn’t buy it. If I was in her shoes I would shut my mouth and let the court settle the matter. Now she may sue the more you stir sh-t the more it stinks. Stop,it is not a good look. Grow the F up. Hood Rat!!

      Candiace need to go get a job she out for money with her broke but and the producers shouldn’t have edited the tape show what really happened she is a very violent person she is the one that should pay for what she did to Monique,got that lawyer trying to get money with his broke but, boy what jealousy can do to us.

  14. Stephtacular

    December 11, 2019 at 8:39 am

    Sooo the mother who walloped Candace upside the head with her purse is the same one who taught the elitist bratt manners? Go figure. Candace has a false sense of entitlement. Her little bubble is about to burst and she won’t be able to handle the fallout. Good bye Ms. Delusional.

    Candiace and her lawyer are full of sh-t. Candiace threw a whole knife at Ashley. She should keep in mind that Ashley didn’t press charges when she could have. And had Chris not have held her back with all his strength, Candiace would have laid hands on Ashley so how is she any better than Monique? She thinks her momma having money makes her classy and sh-t. She’s the biggest hypocrite on the show. She’s forever talking about pedigree and generational wealth when she acts a d-mn fool on the show. F-ck out of here.

    She shouldn’t need any money remember, she has a “trust fund”.

    Candiace should have thought of the repercussions to her actions before throwing the drink in Monique’s face. I don’t condone violence at all but she got what she deserved.. Next time she will think before reacting.

  18. Theresa

    The knife she pulled out on one of the ladies.

    Candiace and her attorney are bluffing. Housewives can’t even sue each other per their contracts. This is nothing more but a failed attempt at damage control. Even if it turns out that Candiace didn’t throw a drink, most of the fans will continue to not support her in this. And that is because we know that she’s violent and hostile herself. She tried to fight Ashley and threw a knife at her just because Ashley told her they were in her momma’s house. And she told her husband she would run him over with her car after he told her the truth about herself. Candiace is nothing more but a hypocrite who can’t see that everything she says to put down Monique can also be said about her. She’s literally the Queen of Projection.

    December 11, 2019 at 7:59 pm

    Please bravo bring Katie back and get rid of Candice, Giselle and Robyn. We all know why Candice should go, but Giselle bc she only stirs the pot needlessly and Robyn bc ofvthe message she is sending out there to young black men that it is ok to live with a person and not be married to them. What an example our youth of today.
