Monique Samuels Claims ‘RHOP’ Co-Stars Tried To Get Her ‘Fired’ From The Show After Physical Fight With Candiace Dillard!

Monique Samuels claims that some of her The Real Housewives of Potomac co-stars tried to get her fired from the Bravo hit reality show following her physical altercation with Candiace Dillard Bassett.

“They met off camera and had a little meeting and I think that it was very strategic, what they decided to do,” Samuels told Us Weekly. “They looked at this as an opportunity to possibly get me off the show. They thought they had that type of power to get me fired. So that was very strategic.”

Samuels said there are “so many layers” as to why the fight went down, but feels that Dillard “wants to play the victim right now.”

“Her and her attorney have literally gone on media campaigns with this whole incident. She’s called me out of my name. She has said that I’m mentally unstable. She has said that I’m unfit to be a mother and parent,” she told the publication. “That’s a whole lot coming from someone who was supposed to be a friend. So that just seems to me that you were never a friend.”

Monique added that she is looking forward to getting closure at the upcoming season five reunion but she made it clear that she will “never” be friends with Dillard. “I am one to never say never,” Samuels concluded. “But I’m never going to be friends with her again.”

Meanwhile, Candiace reacted to Samuels’ claims about her co-stars tried to get her fired from the show after their fight. “She did enough damage to get herself fired,” Dillard said in a statement to Us Weekly. “I was never involved in the spreading of rumors or plotting that her former friends came up with and she knows that. It’s why she never brought it up to me.”

“This all could have been avoided if she had kept her hands to herself, or at the very least, owned that she lost control,” Dillard added. “Instead, she chose to tell anyone who would listen that I provoked her by throwing a glass. We’ve all now seen the footage.”

The two have not spoken since their fight, which resulted in a summons being issued to Samuels for a charge of second-degree assault. Samuels filed a counterclaim against Dillard for a charge of second-degree assault. In December 2019, both charges were dismissed.
