Candiace Dillard Reveals Whether She’d Return To ‘RHOP’ Next Season If Monique Samuels Does; Says “I Don’t See A World Where The Two Of Us Can Exist”

Candiace Dillard Bassett got candid about the drama going on in the current season of The Real Housewives of Potomac, her fight with Monique Samuels, the upcoming season five reunion taping.

Dillard Bassett began talking about her physical altercation with Monique Samuels. "This affected me on a psychological level and it f--ked me up mentally so bad. And it's not even the fight," Candiace told Justin Sylvester on E!'s Just the Sip podcast. "People are like, you're milking this, you're being dramatic...It's not even the fight."

"It's everything that happened after, knowing that you are allowing this narrative to continue to be perpetuated when you know the truth," Candiace added, referring to the notion that she provoked Monique during their confrontation. "People holding cameras, people that edit footage have told us what happened and you are still dying on this hill that I was provoking you and I was threatening you and I threw wine on you and I threw a glass on you. I even heard I threw a bottle at her."

The entire experience is "awful to relive," according to Candiace. While she initially refused to watch the incident, she admits the only reason she had in the first place was to press charges against Monique. 

"This took me so far left of what I saw for myself and where I saw myself being in life and what I saw happening for me that it just...I didn't even know my name for a while," Candiace explained on the podcast. "I was just in my house looking at the walls like, 'What the f--k happened? How did this happen? How did we get here?'" 

Candiace continued to detail the fallout from the incident with Monique, sharing that "the mob boss has sent her indentured servants out here into these streets, trolling my pages with clown emojis and rat emojis, trolling my mother, trolling my husband, trolling my sister."

"All at her hand," she added. "To try and reroute this narrative for her."

Dillard Bassett will come face-to-face with Samuels at the upcoming season five reunion taping, which she explained why it will "be the most emotionally taxing" reunion yet.

"I think this is the first year I'm not looking forward to the reunion," Candiace expressed. "I'm just like, can we just get to it and through it and then take me to the bar?"

"If your name is on either couch closer to Andy Cohen, that means that you're going to have the hardest reunion. Did I lie?"

"You did not lie," Candiace responded. 

Candiace revealed she's unsure if the taping will be virtual or in-person. 

"New York was in person, you saw their set-up. Andy was at the front of the U. It was like a U-shape," she recalled. "He was at the front and then the girls were spread out 6 feet apart in individual oversized chairs...I want him to be in the middle, though. So he can really field questions to both sides."

"So I hope that he's in the middle if we're in person and we're spread out 6 feet apart flanking him," Candiace added. "That's my hope."

When Justin asked Candiace: "If Monique is invited back to Real Housewives of Potomac, will you go back?"

Candiace answered: "I don't see a world where the two of us can exist."
