Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels’ feud was very controversial.
Monique Samuels probably didn’t anticipate that her final season of “Real Housewives of Potomac” would include a physical altercation with once friend Candiace Dillard. After it all went down, some of the other women began to ice her out. Gizelle Bryant said she no longer wanted to be around Monique. She even hired security for the reunion as well as the sitdown at Karen Huger’s house. Wendy Osefo and Robyn Dixon were Team Candiace. So they didn’t film any scenes with Monique after the sitdown. In their opinion, Monique didn’t seem all that remorseful. As for Candiace, she was willing to walk away from the show if Monique returned for season 6.
After the season 5 reunion aired in full, Monique decided it was time for her to leave the show. She took issue with how she and her husband Chris Samuels were treated. In her opinion, it seemed as if producers were against her. And Chris was also treated unfairly and made out to be violent when he wasn’t.
On the current season, the altercation is still in the back of everyone’s minds. Gizelle even said that Candiace’s blowup with Mia Thornton showed that Candiace didn’t learn her lesson. And Monique’s binder is still a focal point since Gizelle has been asked if it was the reason for her split with Jamal Bryant.
Interestingly enough, Monique recently opened up about if she could ever see herself returning to the show at some point. And she revealed if she’s been watching the latest episodes.
