The aftermath of the epic fight between Candiace Dillard Bassett and Monique Samuels is almost as explosive as the fight itself. Monique left everybody shocked when she dragged Candiace by her weave across the room after the former beauty queen threw her glass of wine at Monique. Immediately after the incident, Monique angrily declared that she had no "remorse" over her actions, and firmly stood by it.

Monique's complete lack of remorse and her physically abusive behavior forced Candiace to press charges against her for second-degree assault. In between the lawsuit, and her close friend Karen Huger holding her accountable for her unacceptable behavior, Monique finally saw an error in her ways and began feeling remorseful for her behavior. In the past two episodes, we saw her express how her getting physical with Candiace was completely unacceptable.

On the latest episode of 'RHOP', Candiace reached out to all her fellow housewives expressing how she was sorry for her behavior and invited them to an event she was hosting to promote her podcast. None of the housewives aside from Ashley Darby turned up to Monique's event. This left Monique feeling hurt, as she felt that the other housewives weren't giving her a platform to share her growth and progress. 

In their green room interviews, the housewives pointed out how they found it hard to believe that Monique suddenly became remorseful for her behavior towards Candiace. Just like the housewives, several fans too found it hard to accept Monique's apology and felt that she showed no genuine remorse. A fan tweeted, "My issue with Monique is that she thinks the viewers are stupid. Stevie Wonder can see that she has NO REMORSE and is trying to save face. #RHOP." Another fan wrote, "I’m not sure what Monique expected. You can’t say you are changing or need to change w/o first being accountable. You never expressed remorse to anybody but your pastor in private. Not to the women & not publicly. Your public actions contradict that. Why would they show up? #RHOP." A fan commented, "Monique is super phony #RHOP she still doesn't have remorse for attacking Candiace you can tell by her attitude." 



 

 



 

 



 

But not all fans felt that Monique wasn't remorseful. Several fans pointed out how Monique was nothing but apologetic for her behavior and growing at her own pace. A fan shared, "I think Monique has definitely showed remorse last episode and this current one. #RHOP She acknowledged that Candiace didn’t deserve to be physically hurt." Another fan expressed, "IDC IDC I ride for Monique. If she said sorry during the time of the fight, it would've been a fake/calculative apology. As Ashley said, it's what happens during the process of redefining who you are that matters. The evolution of post fight. We see she's doing the work. #rhop." A fan wrote, "Watching #RHOP It’s not surprising Monique didn’t initially feel any remorse. She felt Candiace wronged her. Although, Monique was definitely in the wrong. The fact Monique eventually felt remorseful spoke volumes. I feel the other women were hypocrites."
