The tension between the two started to brew after Porsha defended Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels following her season 5 physical altercation with Candiace.
Porsha has repeatedly defended Monique on Bravo’s Chat Room. On the Dec. 6 episode, Porsha told co-hosts Gizelle Bryant, Hannah Berner, and Kate Chastain that Monique told her that Candiace only planned to sue Monique to get millions of dollars.
Gizelle immediately dismissed the claim, saying that Monique never brought that claim up on the show or at the reunion; however, Porsha insisted, “This was said to me personally out of Monique’s mouth.”
Porsha then blasted Candiace’s hypocrisy and called out her past behavior against Ashley Darby on RHOP.
“Come on, Candiace, you know better than that. You actually had a knife at Ashley,” Porsha said on the show. “Now, what if Ashley would have gone and called the police and tried to press charges on you? Let’s be real now. That was your friend; you had an argument; it did not end well; however, don’t go to the next level — I think that was too much. And I’m glad you spoke up, Gizelle.”

Now, Candiace is speaking out. The RHOP star first responded to Porsha’s comments while appearing on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast.
Candiace started by calling out Porsha’s own bad-behavior towards co-star Kenya Moore at the RHOA season 6 reunion. If you recall, Porsha grabbed Kenya by her hair and pulled her to the ground after Kenya continued to taunt her with various props, including an electric megaphone and scepter.
“I think Porsha and Kenya kind of took it too far,” she said on the Behind the Velvet Rope podcast. “So you’ve seen people push the line but never really cross it outside of Porsha, who has proven herself to be the sidekick of all.”
When it comes to Monique and Porsha’s friendship, she called them two “wild people” coming together to support each other’s unsavory behavior.
“I guess Monique would be Porsha’s sidekick, and [they’re] just the two wild people defending each other, which is very cute,” she added. “But, you know the line when you have sense, and as I like to say, ‘scruples.’ And when you don’t, it shows. It shows how you were raised and who you really are.”
The RHOP star then continued to blast Porsha in an interview with Page Six.
“I don’t know Porsha, I’ve never met her, I know her through the television like everyone else,” Candiace revealed to Page Six, “and I never had an issue prior to being sent a clip of her on “Chat Room” with my castmate Gizelle, lying and spreading false information — damning, defaming information — about me and alleging I was trying to sue Monique to secure a down payment on my home.”
As for Porsha’s allegation that Candiace only sued Monique to get money out of her, Candiace denies the claim altogether.
“Yes, I responded in an interview because it’s one thing for you to defend your friend, it’s one thing to talk general smack about me in defense of your friend, but when you flat out lie, yes, I’m going to address it,” she said.
“She should be careful about the lies that she tells. It’s a very dangerous move,” Candiace added.
Part 3 of the RHOP season five reunion airs Sunday, December 27, at 9/8c on Bravo.
