‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ Star Monique Samuels Reacts to Charges Being Dismissed

Photo Credit: Bravo

Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels just got some good news. The charges against both have been dismissed. It was rumored that the altercation that took place popped off after Candiace allegedly threw a drink in Monique’s face. And Monique responded by physically dragging her.

Not too long after, Candiace filed charges against Monique. And Monique filed charges against Candiace in response.

Candiace’s lawyer would later deny that Candiace threw a drink. And Candiace herself stated she was attacked but she did not attack Monique.

Regardless, second-degree assault charges against both were dismissed. Footage of the incident was reviewed. And interviews were conducted with Monique, Candiace, and witnesses who were there when it took place.

Monique’s lawyer, A. Scott Bolden, tells People that Candiace’s history of making “physical threats” and the review of other evidence is why the charges were dismissed.

Candiace’s lawyer, James L. Walker, Jr., told People that the claim that Candiace threw a “wine glass” at Monique is false. And he still believes Candiace was the victim.

After the news went viral, Monique responded on Twitter and Instagram.

      The crazy thing is its in their contracts that the housewives can’t sue each other and press charges. So I wonder if Candiace will be fired for this.

          Exactly Candace is terrible period. I don’t like her I don’t like the air she gives off she is nasty to people who do not drink her kool aid. Get over herself who is she? She not cute and she has a personality to match. I feel sorry for her he’s and he is so nice. To the comment someone made about Monique money can’t buy class really well I will say that speaks volumes about the little big headed queen with the bad hair weave. She talks a lot of smack and can’t back it up period. She needs to watch her mouth and that is for anyone who shoots off their mouth and think they can and will get away with it. One day you’re going to meet your match and she did. She needs to go period she has no value.

        It’s amazing to me how many people are Team Monique when she has proven to be a class-Less thug with money. She has a wonderful husband and family….still not enough. In the words of New York housewife, Luann, “money CAN’T buy you class.” Smh….

        As for Candace, there are no words….

        And yes, I watch the show!

          You’re not exactly classy yourself bashing a black woman anonymously on a blog. Monique and Candiace have both exhibited violent behavior. But it’s disgusting that you would refer to either one of them as a thug, a label racists use to excuse police unjustly killing black people left and right. Do better. What a disgusting comment.

          • Sadie

            December 29, 2019 at 1:49 pm

            She is not bashing anyone on a blog. The responder is merely stating her opinion about something she saw on TV. Careful with personal attacks and name calling on an internet tool designed for folks to voice their opinions.

          • Melody

            December 29, 2019 at 1:58 pm

            Sadie, calling a black woman with no criminal record a thug is definitely bashing her and a personal attack on Monique. Do Better was completely correct in her observation. So you can have a seat with your gaslighting.

          December 28, 2019 at 4:12 pm

          I agree with a lot of what your saying about Monique but that still doesn’t change the fact that the other birl is a rich spoiled brat that pulls knives out on people, says what she wants but don’t know how to handle it when people don’t bow down to her.

          Money can’t buy you class either. You have no words for Candiace because you’re a bitter Candiace stan. Y’all were counting on Monique going to jail and now that it didn’t happen, y’all have to resort to defaming her and calling her a thug. Monique is not a thug. She has no criminal record and she does not bother people unless they bother her first. So stay mad.

        • Actually

          December 28, 2019 at 4:31 pm

          Monique is not a thug! I see that you don’t know the definition of the word because yo girl Candice pull knives on people I she’s a saint. All the people Monique has came for they came for her first. Candice is this you??

            Maybe not a thug but both of them act like and represent “across the river” girls. They are embarrassing, classless, immature and I could go on and on. Neither would qualify as a role model for young women of color. Shows us that having money does not make you. Both need to look in the mirror in 2020 and make some serious changes. Become respectable women of color.

          I hope your confused their names. It should be candice who is no class.
          Money can buy class. Your manners give you class and, candice has none. Throwing knives , screaming at her mom, sgutting down one husband, it go on and on. She is very jealous person, she did it on Ashley but too bad it didn’t go well. And more monique too bad. She should be fired

      Monique is a BULLY. Her husband seems to be a very nice guy but she is a VERY INSECURE, VERY JEALOUS BULLY.

      That’s why her husband’s mom (even though I think she was wrong for how she acted at the “family” dinner)doesn’t like her. She try’s be more than she is.

      She cries the victim when she is WRONG. She did the same thing when she drank too much and wrecked the car. Rather than say she drank more than she realized, she finds another out by saying she fell asleep.

      She needs to own up to her BULLCRAP and be who she is.

        What show are you watching because you can’t be watching RHOP. From day one Gizelle came for Monique. She tried to call Monique homeless and has been coming for her ever since Monique told her they have four homes. Robyn and Gizelle have been jealous for seasons now. They literally said she has a perfect life last season. How pathetic. Monique has no reason to envy any of these women. She has the most stable marriage, her husband adores her, she has the most money, more real estate, the best house, beautiful kids, and she can walk away from this show and it won’t be a hit to her pockets. This is play money for Monique. But Monique never comes for anyone unless they come for her first. That is NOT a bully. She’s definitely not the one throwing knives at people and harassing pregnant women…that would be Candiace. I’m not sure why you’re bringing up Monique’s past issues with her mother in law when Candiace’s mother is out here hitting her in the face with purses and telling Gizelle how she can’t afford to buy a house on her own. Girl BYE.

        December 28, 2019 at 1:34 pm

        Desiree, I agree with Girlbye post. What show are you watching? Go back and bingewatch RHOP, please. What does Monique have to be jealous of the ladies for. She has 4 homes and more money than they do. Her husband treats her like a Queen. None of the other ladies have that. Jaun never showed Robyn any love in prior seasons. Gizzle could not keep any of the men she dragged to the show. Especially, Sherman who she made it seems like he was getting ready to marry her and he ended up dropping her butt.
        Chris mother would have said and behave nasty to any woman that’s in Chris life. Family inheritance dissipitate once there’s wife and children in the picture. That’s why Chris momma was coming at Monique sideways. You saw Chris checked his mother in a respectful way, though.
        MONIQUE HAS NEVER DISRESPECT OR BULLY ANYONE ON THAT SHOW. ALL SHE DOES IS DEFEND HERSELF & HER CHARACTER.They come for her first. Yes, Monique clap back when those green eyes monsters with Ashley leading the pack came at her and insinuated that she was drinking that’s why she lost her baby. Chris brought that up at the reunion and none of those spineless heathen could not say anything. Then when Ashley was trying to get pregnant and kept drinking. Candaice spent the whole season clapping at her, telling her she was lying about trying to get pregnant because she is drinking too much. Ashley didn’t like it. In those moments Ashley got doses of what she did to Monique. When Ashley lost her baby, Monique showed her compassion, empathy an open heart ans listening ears. Because Monique had dwelt with the same pain. Monique, could have clap back negativly but she took the high road.
        In fact, Candaice verbalized in front of those manless green eyes jealous monsters that she felt like Ashley was lying about her miscarriage. So, once again which show are you watching.

      @Nessa, you got that right. The main naysayers are; no captital, living in her momma’s house & getting popped in the head with her momma’s purse, Candaice. The next naysayer, is long neck, can’t get and keep a man, had to run back into the arms of her cheating ex-husband, fixer upper re-op Gizzelle. The last naysayer is, almost a year long house fix upper & 30K profit, who had been constanly disrespected by her livin in ex-husband who at that time made it seems that she was getting on his last nerve, giving up the milk/kitty cat for free, who finally wore down her ex-husband, forcing him to proposed to her again, pregnant with her ex-husband, fiancee baby, Robyn.
      Those ladies practice nothing but foolery. Robyn finally got herself a storyline, Gizzle finally got herself a storyline also. We still waiting for Candaice to get a storyline unless she plan on using Monique as a storyline. They get on my nerve.

        Candiace is trying to hard to have a story line. We all know that candiace depends on mommy and daddy money. “Fake it till you make it” has Candiace name all over it.
        Monique is living her best life and candiace would love to have a piece of it.

    Omg!!! It’s sad for this young lady to be brought into a sisterhood of beautiful black women and act this Petty. Candice needs to really grow up and stop acting like a child. Mom needs to cut the apron string and let Candice suffer the consequences of her action. Simply bcs the next person she tries to be messy with just might take things to another level. Which could result in something more serious. People lose their lives over things that has gone to far. For a person who wants her mom to let go and let her run things, your actions & reactions show’s you’re not ready to handle anything on your own. Candice grow up before you really get hurt.

    Happy for Monique..she has a real life and does not need any added stressors. Candiace is an immature,untalented,society ladies who lunch want-to-be. I wonder how long it’ll be before Chris gets the hell out of Dodge. She seems to have a one dimensional self portrait…boo hoo, look at me,the victim.She annoyed the hell out of me her first season, she’s gotten worse. Her singing is abominable, her attitude is even worse, and her over-the-top sense of self is disgusting. Monique,live your best life.The hater troll Candiace is soooo jealous it’s making her ugliness pop.

    Don’t like Candice one bit, and that Chris husband should just run whilst he still can. That Candice will ruin his career because she has none. She’s just irritating. Love you Candice
