Candiace Dillard

Candiace Dillard is playing a childish game of tug-a-war with the justice system over her now infamous fight with Monique Samuels that turned physical.

According to Monique Samuels’ attorney, Candiace Dillard forced their hand to file counter assault charges after the pageant princess refused to “mediate this situation.”

In the following statement from Monique Samuels’ attorney, A. Scott Bolden, he asserts that his client was assaulted and had no choice but to defend herself. 

“At this point in our investigation, we had no choice but to file this criminal summons case after several attempts to mediate this situation with Ms. Bassett were rejected by herself and her team.”

A. Scott Bolden cites Candiace Dillard’s “aggressive, threatening and belligerent conduct.”

He continues, “On this regard, Mrs. Samuels had no choice but to fully defend herself and she did. Nevertheless, my client wants nothing more than to find peace with this situation but unfortunately the ability to do so through mediation has been denied. Therefore this summons is the proper next step for Mrs. Samuels and her right to self defense.”

On November 14, Monique Samuels filed a counter criminal complaint with the Montgomery County court in Maryland for the abuse she suffered at the hands of Candiace Dillard while filming a Real Housewives of Potomac cast event at a winery, on October 16. Candiace was charged with second-degree assault — issued a summons —  and scheduled to appear in court on the same day as Monique, Dec. 23.

On November 7, Monique Samuels was issued a summons for second-degree assault for the same incident and scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 23.

Unfortunately for Candiace Dillard, her violent outbursts aimed at her Real Housewives of Potomac co-stars (and her husband) have been well documented on the Bravo reality series.
