Candiace Dillard Monique Samuels The Real Housewives of Potomac - RHOP

Candiace Dillard Says Monique Samuels’ RHOP Exit Was A ‘Load Off ‘ of the Entire Cast After ‘Heavy’ And ‘Dark’ Season; Says She Wants Season 6 ‘To Be A New Chapter For Our Group’

Fresh start?

That’s what Candiace Dillard is hoping season 6 will be for the Real Housewives of Potomac cast.

“I would hope that we could come together as a group and find a way to healthily and happily move forward and make room for new drama,” Candiace told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m so over season 5 and talking about season 5 and what happened in season 5. I would want a season 6 to be a new chapter for our group.”

She then revealed her feelings about Monique quitting RHOP. Monique initially intended to return for season 6 but chose to exit the show after Andy Cohen treated her “unfairly” at Season 5 reunion.

“I definitely think that that announcement was a load off of all of us,” she said. “Season 5 was dark. It was very heavy, and it took on a life of its own, right? It became bigger than all of us, even, I’m close to several of our producers, and it affected everybody, not just the cast, but everyone.”

“It was hard, and it was very dark,” she added. “So, anytime you have a dark cloud when that cloud is removed, it obviously lifts the morale of the group and allows a space for us to move forward. And it’s just up to us to take that path and move forward. And I would hope that if we’re coming back that that’s what we’re able to do.”

RHOP is expected to return for season 6 in late 2021 or early 2022.
