Candiace Dillard Believes Monique Samuels’ ‘RHOP’ Reunion Diss Towards Gizelle Bryant’s Relationship With Jamal Bryant Was “Just Below The Belt” And “A New Low For All Of Us”; Says “I Would Even Go So Far As To Say For The Franchise”

Candiace Dillard explains why she believes Monique Samuels’ ‘below the belt’ diss towards Gizelle Bryant’s relationship with Pastor Jamal Bryant during Part 1 of the Real Housewives of Potomac season five reunion tarnished the ‘Real Housewives’ brand.

“I wasn’t so much defending Gizelle as defending what was right,” Dillard told Page Six when asked why she spoke up during the exchange. “What was being done, what was being said by Monique was just below the belt. It was a new low for all of us. I would even go so far as to say for the franchise.”

She continued,  “It was a general disgust with what she did. How are you able to sleep at night thinking and behaving this way? Are you proud that you spent God knows how many hours using your husband’s printer and ink to put this book together? It was a new low for us.”

Dillard also questions Samuels’ friendship with co-star Ashley Darby. “[Samuels’ husband] Chris even went so far as to say ‘I’m going to say this about Michael, but if you ever repeat it, I’m going to deny it,'” the singer and former beauty queen revealed. “I cannot remember what he said after that, but that in itself is telling. I don’t need to lie about that.”

Candiace teases how her relationship with Karen Huger plays out during the remainder of the three-part reunion, despite feeling betrayed by her for supporting Samuels following their altercation.

“You can say whatever it is you need to say to smooth it over, but I’m looking at your actions,” she insisted, “because as they say, actions speak louder than words. Karen’s actions from the beginning of this toxic fight and afterwards has been very difficult to peg and trust. I don’t see how we come back from that place.”
