Karen Huger Explains Why Candiace Dillard And Monique Samuels’ RHOP Fight Was ‘Very Painful’ And ‘Challenging’ For Her This Season; Says “I Decided Just To Stand My Ground And Be True To Myself”

Karen Huger explains why the explosive drama between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett, which will play out in future episodes of the current season of The Real Housewives of Potomac was ‘very painful’ for her.

“I can say for me personally that it was very painful,” Karen told HollywoodLife.

“These two women are my friends and to see that happen, it was very painful for me to see this and you can imagine the position it put me in. If you’re truly a ride or die girlfriend which I am, I had to be objective and that was very challenging and you guys will have to stay tuned and I did my best. No one is perfect and I did my best in handling the situation and I stand by what I did.”

As for what viewers can expect from the fight? “It’s based upon the viewer how they perceive it,” she added. ” I don’t think it’s the biggest fight in Housewives history. I think it’s right up there with it though,” she teased.

 Huger, who is known as the Grande Dame, admits that she did her best trying to mediating the two.

“You will see me play into that role but you will also see me go,” Karen told HollywoodLife. “When the mother hen cannot teach the chickens. You’ve got to let your hands go and do the best you can do and I decided just to stand my ground and be true to myself and how to raise my children. I wanted them to be proud with how I handled the situation because it does reflect to the younger generation how to handle conflict, what do you do and what do you do as a friend who’s caught in the middle of that and I’m proud of what I did.”

Huger admits that the fight between Samuels and Dillard Bassett has driven a huge wedge between the entire cast.

“I think it’s a very fair comment,” Karen revealed. “It had a devastating effect on the cast. You just have to stay tuned and see. There were people who were for one and not the other. It was a hot mess and painful to watch but at the same time, understandably. We had to take this step by step as a group to work through it and get to the other side of it. My thing was to try and love both women through this because I saw them as casualties, not the women taking sides on the show, so you’ll see that, too.”
