Candiace Dillard Bassett Says She’s “Still Not OK” After “Embarrassing” Fight With RHOP Co-Star Monique Samuels!

This week, Candiace Dillard Bassett appeared on The Wendy Williams Show where she addressed the physical altercation that went down between her and Monique Samuels during Sunday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac.

"This is never somewhere that I saw myself being at any time. I'm not a fighter. I don't fight," Candiace said, according to E! News. "It's not what I do and having gone through this and having dealt with literally, the trauma of it. It's not what I see my legacy being. I don't want this to be representative of me or really in 2020, of Black women at all."

"I'm embarrassed. I'm embarrassed for all of us," she further shared. "We are entrepreneurs, we are wives, we are mothers, we are enterprising women, we don't do things like this. The fact that this took place, it's embarrassing for me."

Dillard Bassett revealed that she's "confused" by her fall out with Monique.

"We are almost a year removed from the incident and I'm still confused," Candiace noted. "I still don't know what exactly I did to this person that would cause her to think that…"

At this point, Wendy interrupted and suggested that Candiace accused Monique of "having an affair behind her husband's back."

To which Candiace denied having any involvement in spreading the affair rumors.

"She never had a conversation with me about these rumors that she heard," she said. "I was never a part of a spin, a spreading, a plot. That was never anything that I was a part of."

She went on to call Monique's defense of her actions "poppycock."

"It only comes out and becomes an issue after we have wrapped filming, because she was looking for any reason to justify physically attacking another Black woman on national television," Candiace stated. "And it's embarrassing."

Candiace made it clear that she is "still not OK" from the incident and explained why she pressed charges against Samuels.

"It wasn't for TV," Dillard shared. "That was me watching this person, who physically attacked me, then show no remorse and double down on her lies and me saying to myself, 'You have embarrassed Black women as a whole with your horrible behavior and I can't allow that to be the case.'"
