The fight between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels is now transcending franchises. After Porsha Williams made it clear that she’s on Monique’s side on Bravo’s Chat Room, the Real Housewives of Potomac star is coming for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.
This season, things between Monique and Candiace got so heated that it resulted in the two getting into a physical altercation. If you’re a fan of the Housewives franchises, you’d know that fights are not at all out of the ordinary.
From hair-pulling on RHONJ to glass throwing on multiple other franchises — the only reason viewers were surprised by this was that it never happened on RHOP before.
Porsha also made headlines when she dragged her co-star Kenya Moore off stage during a reunion a few seasons back. Which is why she understood why Monique may have lost her cool if she was feeling provoked.
She said on the Bravo talk show: ‘At the end of the day, any type of altercation period, they’re going to compare us. Especially if it happens on these cameras. Now in my situation, I felt provoked, and that’s a personal feeling. I personally felt provoked and pushed to that level. Now, Monique, she may feel that way, as well. I just feel like in her case, it kind of built up, and I just feel like we shouldn’t judge her.’
Dillard caught wind of what was said and responded on the Behind The Velvet Rope podcast where she referred to Monique as a sidekick who pushed the line.
‘100%. Yeah…There’s a line. And I think… we’ve seen a lot of Housewives push the envelope and like push the line. I’ve always used Lisa Rinna as an example when she cracks that glass on the table. That, and of course, you know, I think Porsha and Kenya kind of took it too far. So you’ve seen people push the line…but never really cross it outside of Porsha –who…is proven herself to be the sidekick of all. I guess Monique would be Porsha’s sidekick. And just the two wild people defending each other, which is very cute. But you, 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.
What do you think of Candiace’s remarks?
