During parts two and three of The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion, Andy Cohen questioned Candiace Dillard Bassett and Monique Samuels about what led to their verbal spat becoming physical. Cohen had each woman re-tell the events from their point of view.
During one segment in part two of the reunion, Samuels accused Dillard of putting her hands in her face. Per Samuels, Dillard doing so caused her to feel threatened and retaliate physically. Cohen denied that Dillard became physical first, despite a clip from production corroborating Samuels’ claim proving otherwise.
Cohen continued grilling Samuels as Dillard Bassett cried, calling Samuels’ retelling of the events “cut and dry.” Cohen also accused Samuels of being non-emotional and appearing non-remorseful. He also did not think that Samuels’ recently released rap song “Drag Queens” was in good jest. According to Cohen, Samuels’ decision to release the song only added to Dillard’s drama.
Samuels quit the show after watching part three of the reunion, citing poor editing and admitting that Cohen’s line of questioning was one-sided.
Social media users agree and have been blasting Cohen for days since parts two and three of the reunion aired.

I call bullsh????t on you Andy. There’s footage of Candice “plotting” on Monique. Let somebody talk about Ben & that would have been the end of their contract. You came for @iammrssamuels so damn hard. NEVER have I seen you be this tough on Teresa or any other housewife ????

The way @Andy has treated Monique is unacceptable! Where was this same energy for Teresa and any other housewife that has gotten physical? #rhop has grown but I might have to say goodbye. You’ve already shown us you tolerate low life racists like Kelly. #RhopReunion3

Andy and the network literally gaslit Monique the entire reunion. One example is showing Chris”s live but not showing Candace”s live where age literally laid the plot out
