Candiace Dillard Monique Samuels The Real Housewives of Potomac - RHOP

Monique Samuels Says Some of the Potomac Housewives Tried To Get Her ‘Fired’ From The Show After Altercation With Candiace Dillard


Monique Samuels claims that some of her co-stars tried to get her fired from the Real Housewives of Potomac. This came as a result of her physical altercation with co-star Candiace Dillard.

In a new interview with Us Weekly, Monique reveals that some of her RHOP co-stars met “off-camera” before having the sitdown at Karen Huger’s house, which fans saw play out on Sunday’s episode.

“They met off-camera and had a little meeting, and I think that it was very strategic, what they decided to do,” Monique tells Us Weekly.“They looked at this as an opportunity to possibly get me off the show. They thought they had that type of power to get me fired. So that was very strategic.”

Monique adds that there are “so many layers” as to why the fight between her and Candiace went down. She goes on to claim that Candiace “wants to play the victim right now.”

“Her and her attorney have literally gone on media campaigns with this whole incident. She’s called me out of my name. She has said that I’m mentally unstable. She has said that I’m unfit to be a mother and parent,” Monique explains. “That’s a whole lot coming from someone who was supposed to be a friend. So that just seems to me that you were never a friend.”

The two haven’t spoken since their fall 2019 fight.

Meanwhile, Candiace says that she was never involved in plotting against Monique or spreading rumors.

“She did enough damage to get herself fired,” Candiace said in a statement to Us Weekly. “I was never involved in the spreading of rumors or plotting that her former friends came up with, and she knows that. It’s why she never brought it up to me.”

“This all could have been avoided if she had kept her hands to herself, or at the very least, owned that she lost control,” she added. “Instead, she chose to tell anyone who would listen that I provoked her by throwing a glass. We’ve all now seen the footage.”

Candiace wraps by saying she’s looking forward to getting closure at the season 5 reunion but does not plan to reconcile with Monique ever.

“I am one to never say never,” she confesses. “But I’m never going to be friends with her again.”

The Real Housewives of Potomac airs on Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo.

Who do you think plotted to get Monique fired? If Bravo fired Monique would they also have to fire Candiace? Who would you rather see leave RHOP – Monique or Candiace? Can Monique and Candiace ever be friends again?
