It seems like Season 5 is going to be wild as Monique Samuels was seen dragging Candiace Dillard in the first two minutes of the ‘RHOP’ premiere on August 2.
The Real Housewives of Potomac took a page out of Beverly Hills’ book by teasing the season’s biggest fight in the very first episode.
Just as they did with Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump’s major fight in Season 9, Bravo producers gave viewers a sneak peek at Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard‘s highly-anticipated fight in the first few minutes of RHOP’s season premiere on August 2, before taking viewers several weeks back to see how everything led to that very moment.
In case you’re unaware of what happens during that very moment that will play out later this season, you might want to watch RHOP’s latest trailer below. It’ll be a few weeks before that drama plays out on screen, but there were other great moments in this week’s episode that are just as worthy of being discussed.
For example, the major drama of the evening came during Candiace and husband Chris‘ one-year wedding anniversary party in which they spent nearly $22,000 on when Gizelle confronted Candiace about a nasty tweet.
Candiace had dissed Gizelle’s house after Gizelle mocked Candiace’s house-hunting process, and both were pretty upset. Unfortunately, neither one apologized to the other and their conversation was quickly interrupted by Monique who came in and changed the subject.
But later inside, Candiace asked her good friend Karen Huger, who recently moved back to Potomac, to take the microphone and give a little speech, during which she revealed that she and longtime husband Ray are having trouble in their marriage.
Karen previously told Monique that her husband hasn’t been happy with her always leaving town to do work and promote her perfume, so it remains unclear if their marriage will survive the test of time.
To everyone’s surprise, Charisse who’s been spreading rumors about Monique and didn’t even go to Candiace’s wedding also attended the party.
For more drama: New episodes of The Real Housewives of Potomac air Sundays at 9 pm on Bravo.
