Nearly a couple of months after the second-degree assault charges were dropped, Candiace Dillard tweeted about “karma” coming to someone. Monique Samuels thought Dillard was talking to her and claimed she “shut her up months ago.”
In response, the 33-year-old threatened to expose skeletons in Samuels’ closet.

The former Miss United States joined The Real Housewives of Potomac in Season 3 after Charisse Jackson Jordan stepped down as a full-time housewife. Candiace Dillard became very good friends with co-star Monique Samuels, and the two viewed each other as sisters.
However, their relationship soured in the following season when Samuels befriended Ashley Darby. Because Dillard is not particularly fond of the restaurant owner, she became upset with Samuels and felt like the mother-of-three betrayed her.
