Lights, cameras, action! The claws recently came out while filming season 8 of RHOP as a shocking brawl broke out among the cast. Get all the deets!
TV Deets reports that an “all-out brawl” while filming season 8 of RHOP on July 13. It turns out that it wasn’t the RHOP cast that caused the drama. Instead, the blame belongs to friends of the Housewives!
Real Housewives of Potomac star Candiace Dillard found herself in the middle of Keiana Stewart and Deborah Williams’ “shocking” physical altercation at the launch party for Ashley Darby and Gizelle Bryant‘s activewear line.
“Deborah and Candiace had been talking s–t about each other all night,” a source close to production tells TV Deets. “Candiace was confronting Deborah about what she had been saying about Chris [Basset], and Keiana walked up and got herself involved.”
As RHOP fans know, Deborah appeared on season 7 of the Real Housewives of Potomac. She infamously, and incorrectly, claimed that both Chris Bassett and Eddie Osefo flirted with her at Karen Huger‘s spring fling party. Deborah is not set to appear on season 8 of the Real Housewives of Potomac in any official capacity. She was only at the party due to her friendship with Ashley.
Keiana, on the other hand, is set to join the RHOP season 8 cast as a friend of Wendy Osefo. Keiana reportedly threw the first punch, but it was Deborah, who got the last laugh.
“Deborah ate Keiana up,” the RHOP insider reveals. “Deborah definitely won.”
It also seems that Deborah and Keiana’s altercation wasn’t the only drama of the night. Candiace got into a heated war of words with Mia Thornton.
Two days after this event, the RHOP cast filmed the season 8 finale episode on Saturday, July 15. The event documented the unveiling of Potomac Housewives’ Monarch Magazine cover shoot. TV Deets reports that production wanted to keep the details of the cover shoot a secret, so attendees had to turn in their phones upon arrival. However, the photos from the Monarch Magazine spread will “leave fans talking,” according to a source.
Meanwhile, TMZ also released additional footage of the brawl between Deborah and Keianna. Check it out below!
The Real Housewives of Potomac will return to Bravo later this year.
