It looks like the rumors are true that Real Housewives of Potomac stars Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard got into a fight where Monique finally took Candiace up on her offer to “drag her.” She’s just been charged with second degree assault as Dillard just filed a complaint with the commissioner of the District Court of Montgomery County in Maryland on November 7th. Samuels, who’s wife to former Redskins player Chris Samuels has a court date on December 23rd because the commissioner found probably cause and issued a summons for her to appear in court. The court date is interesting considering how we just saw Samuels mention on Twitter that she’s already finished Christmas shopping and that she normally does right before Christmas. Well we now know why she didn’t wait until right before Christmas. But the chances are that even if she were to receive a prison sentence, it wouldn’t start after her first court date.
Now as for how these two got into a fight, while we don’t like to support violence, sometimes, you just have to fight things out. These two have been off and on at each other’s throats for what seems like years and you’re only going to have but so many times to tell someone to “do something” before they get up and do it. But when that person decides to do something, don’t go running off calling the police. That’s where I think the problem lies. If you’re going to fight, especially after daring the other person to do so, fight. But there’s no need to involve law enforcement. I’ve never been a fan of unnecessarily involving the police in things. You could call the police and end up being the one attacked by the police by mistake. Karen Huger had done a good job of mediating things trying to get all of the women to get along but I suppose she missed this incident.
Also, the premise of the show is that everyone is supposed to be friends and even if you’re not getting along with each other, you still have to show up to work with each other. That’s why we’d prefer they just fight, dust themselves off and come back to work like nothing happened. Police reports just add an entirely different level to things, especially when the person you’re calling the police on has children. That’s not really a cool thing to do for one woman to do to another. But we weren’t there and don’t know what happened. We just hope this doesn’t lead to Samuels’ place on the show being in jeopardy. Then again, if Porsha Williams is still on the Atlanta franchise after being a one woman MMA expert whooping arse left and right, Samuels should be fine.
