Monique Samuels' Attorney Speaks Out After Candiace Dillard Files Charges For RHOP Beatdown
Monique Samuels may be in some serious trouble after an incident with Candiace Dillard. The Howard University alum filed a complaint that caused Monique to be charged with second-degree assault .
It's rumored that during a heated argument at dinner, the mother of three grabbed Dillard by the hair and pulled her down. Some say that this was due to Candiace throwing a drink in Monique's face.
However, her attorney is denying that his client is in the wrong.
Samuels’ attorney, A. Scott Bolden, told People Magazine: 'Ms. Dillard has a public reputation for aggressive, belligerent and threatening behavior that has played out repeatedly on the Housewives of Potomac for millions of viewers to see for themselves. To be sure, my client did nothing but defend herself in the face of more very aggressive behavior by Ms. Dillard. If this event occurred during taping of the show, I am confident that the video will bear all of this out. My client has every right to file for a counter criminal summons, as well, and will consider doing so, while fully defending herself in this action that has been filed with the Court. Either way, I am confident that she will prevail on this matter. Going forward, we hope that Ms. Dillard seeks the help she needs to avoid creating these kinds of unsafe and unfortunate circumstances in and outside of the workplace.'
Real Housewives of Potomac fans know how Candiace can be.
Many have pointed out that last season the newlywed threw a butterknife at Ashley Darby after wagging it in her face.
An Instagram blog that follows the RHOP cast has claimed that some of the ladies have alienated Monique and refused to film with her.
Although the mommy blogger hasn't commented directly on the recent reports, she did share a quote via Instagram that stated: 'Damaged people are dangerous. They know how to make 'h***' feel like 'home.'
Are you team Candiace or team Monique?
