RHOP's Candiace Dillard slams RHOA's Porsha Williams for supporting Monique Samuels: 'You look and sound stupid'
Candiace Dillard fired shots at both Monique Samuels and Porsha Williams during an interview with David Yontef on the 'Behind the Velvet Rope' podcast
The explosive fight between Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels on Season 5 of 'Real Housewives of Potomac' tore apart cast members of the show. While most ladies — Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon and Wendy Osefo — firmly stood by Candiace's side and slammed Monique for physically assaulting Candiace, only Ashley Darby took Monique's side.
Ashley explained that she didn't want her fellow housewife to go to prison since Candiace filed a lawsuit against Monique for second-degree assault, while Karen Huger insisted that she was neutral and didn't want to take anyone's side.
Apart from Ashley, Monique seems to have found a strong supporter in 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Porsha Williams. Porsha and Monique share a great rapport with each other, so the Atlanta housewife ensured that the world knew that she was firmly team Monique during one of the recent Bravo's chat room specials.
On the chat room special, Porsha revealed that Monique told her that Candiace filed a lawsuit against her just for "money grab". Porsha said, "She [Monique] felt like, the whole reason Candiace was suing her was to pay for her mom’s house. She was suing because it was a money grab.” When Gizelle pointed to Porsha that Monique never shared that theory either on the show or the reunion, the Atlanta housewife then clarified that it was told to her privately.
The clip of Porsha proclaiming her allegiance to Monique and accusing Candiace of trying to fleece her co-star made its way to the former beauty queen. When Candiace appeared on David Yontef's popular podcast 'Behind the Velvet Rope' she had a few choice words for Porsha. When podcast host Yontef asked Candiace for her comments on Porsha supporting Monique, Candiace questioned Porsha's common sense for believing Monique, a "clear liar".
"[She has] "proven [to be] someone we don’t expect much from in the frame of common sense, I don’t expect her to question what she’s being told by a clear liar.” “Common sense would tell you to vet certain things and not be so vehemently loud and wrong — that’s the bed she’s chosen to lay in and that’s what they do in Stupidville," replied the housewife.
While Candiace acknowledged the incredible work Porsha was doing for the BLM Movement, she didn't seem very pleased with the Atlanta housewife supporting Monique. "You would think she’d have more empathy and judiciousness in the way she speaks, and she just doesn’t — you look and sound stupid," slammed Candiace.
In the same interview, Candiace also clarified Monique's accusations of trying to sue her for money by declaring that it was never about money, but just wanted Monique to go to jail, and called out her supporters for gaslighting. Candiace explained, "I never wanted her money, it was very clear that I wanted her to go to jail, and people crucified me for that [like] ‘how dare you want a Black woman to go to jail and be away from her children?’ What in the gaslighting is going on? Like, was she thinking about her children and her family when she was physically attacking me?”
With so much tension between Monique and Candiace, Season 6 of 'RHOP' will be very tricky, so when the housewife was asked about the future of the show, she made one thing clear — that she would never film with Monique. Candiace shared, "I will not film with her, I will not work with her — I, for my mental health, cannot be around someone who is doing a music video to promote the song bragging about fighting me. And there's nothing that I need or want to say to her. This is still a job at the end of the day. I'm not working with her and that's not an ultimatum. That's nothing but my truth. I am not comfortable in that space.”
'Real Housewives of Potomac' Season 5 reunion airs on Sunday at 9/8c on Bravo.
