Just ahead of an explosive altercation between them, two Real Housewives of Potomac traded some shade on the latest episode.
According to Monique, who’s Candiace’s ex-friend, Candiace should “stay out of people’s marriages” and she was PISSED that Candiace alongside Gizelle Bryant pulled Ashley away from the group to have a private conversation while the rest of the ladies waited at a fire pit.
Candiace and Gizelle also declined to tell Monique the real reason why they pulled Ashley aside.
Later, Candiace told Monique that she wanted the convo with Ashley to be PRIVATE—but Monique wasn’t having it and called Candiace “disrespectful” during an exchange that got heated. Candiace walked away and viewers told Monique she was overreacting.
According to Monique however, she was really pissed because she had a special event planned for the fire pit and the ladies missed it.
Robyn Dixon added that Monique was being a control freak—and surprisingly Monique didn’t disagree. Monique did emphasize however that the ladies kept her waiting an HOUR and didn’t extend the courtesy of letting her know what was up.
Later when everyone was leaving Monique’s lake house, Candiace went to say goodbye to Monique and her husband, Chris Samuels but Monique was “asleep” on the couch. Candiace clearly thought Monique was faking it;
“It’s definitely weird to me that Monique Samuels, queen of decorum, all of sudden is passed the hell out,” said Candiace. ‘You’re just asleep all of a sudden? OK. Sure!”
But Monique is insisting that she wasn’t being shady and really was soundly asleep.
“At this point I’m completely EXHAUSTED!!!!” Monique tweeted. “These women wore me OUT!!!!!”
The next episode is the one everyone’s been waiting for; the Cabernet combat between Monique and Candiace. During the incident, viewers will see a physical fight that leads to the ex-friends filing charges against each other. Candiace claimed Monique grabbed her by the hair and pulled her down but Monique claimed self-defense noting that Candiace hit her in the face with a wine glass, “leaving her with a bloody nose and lacerated lip—thus leading to her defending herself against the aggressor.”
In both cases, both ladies faced potential jail time if a second-degree assault conviction had been made, but both cases were dismissed.
