Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels has revealed that she almost left the show after the fight with her co-star Candiace Dillard. Although the fight hasn't aired yet, reports say it started when Candiace threw a drink at Monique and Monique grabbed her and pulled her hair.
Monique told Entertainment Tonight about the fight, “I can tease it this way: Watch every past season of Candiace, and then watch all of the tweets and the vulgar tweets she’s ever put out, and then you can draw your own conclusion as to why that happened. I’m not falling for the BS. She is showing you who she is, every day, one tweet at a time…”
She continued, “Candiace is exposing who she is as a liar and a manipulator every day. So all people gotta do is, not only watch the show, but watch her social media, and they will be able to put everything together for themselves and they will be able to see who’s really the liar.”
Samuels added, “I took this very seriously. I didn’t want a pity party. I didn’t need any of that. I wanted to figure out what triggered me, why it triggered me and what can I do to make sure this never happens again. So, that is what my goal was.”
On considering walking away from the show, she said, “That thought actually came about, and it went even further than being a thought, I’ll just put it like that. But I ultimately decided that, as long as I could feel comfortable continuing my filming and show my journey, as long as that was in a comfortable environment for myself, then that’s what I wanted to do and that’s what I decided to do. And now that I know what I know now, I’m very grateful that I didn’t walk away and that I stuck it out.”
CANDIACE SAYS SHE WILL QUIT THE SHOW IF MONIQUE DOESN'T
Although Monique has decided to stay on the show, Candiace said she refuses to film another season with Monique. She said, “I honestly believe that it was the loss of control by Monique that really gave the show more headlines. People were intrigued by someone who appeared to be so — contained, put together, poised — how could it get to the point where Candiace is pressing charges?…I am not taping another season with her. I will not be doing that. Everyone knows that. That has been made clear. I will never film another season of any show with someone who can do what she did, and then conduct themselves in the aftermath of what she did the way that she did.”
