The Real Housewives of Potomac OG recently appeared on David Yontef’s Behind the Velvet Rope podcast, where she admitted that she believes there’s more to Monique and Candiace’s beef aside from their physical altercation.
“My thoughts are that the altercation had zero, zero to do with Charrisse [Jackson-Jordan], and what Charrisse was saying and the rumors and all that. It had nothing to do with that,” Gizelle confessed. “To this day, my thoughts are that it was the silliest, most unnecessary altercation under the sun. I feel like Monique has always had some issue with Candiace, that she’s never kind of expressed, maybe it’s jealousy.”
As for why Monique may be jealous of Candiace, Gizelle said, “Candiace came around, and love her or hate her, Candiace is Candiace. You know she’s got a slick mouth. She is annoying, but we like her because she decides to show up in her own skin, with all of her antics. And I think maybe Monique doesn’t like that. I don’t know.”
“I felt like it should have never happened,” Gizelle said of the physical fight between Candiace and Monique that took place in October 2019 while filming season 5.
The altercation started when Candiace allegedly threw a drink at Monique. In response Monique dragged Candiace and slammed her face onto the table.
She continued, “I’ve been here since day one. I don’t want to see this show turn into something that we aren’t. We aren’t women that go around and knock each other upside the head.”
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs on Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo.
