Mia Thornton put new Real Housewives of Potomac cast “friend,” Jaqueline Blake, on display over the weekend when she exposed footage of her ex-bestie embroiled in a physical altercation with her partner. The Neighborhood Talk shared the video which revealed Jacqueline throwing items and striking the man filming the messy incident.
Mia, 37, notified the network in her caption, posting the video on Twitter.
“Help Is Available. @bravotv I’m taking a stand to NOT condone violence,” she captioned the since-deleted tweet. “I will never deliberately inflict physical pain on another. None of it is ok, no one deserves to be treated this way.”

Mia’s co-star, Dr. Wendy Osefo, 38, jumped into the mix to comment on Mia’s statement, tweeting—“Girl, I know YOU not talking about “not condoning violence.” You threw a drink on me and hit me with your purse multiple times— breaking 3 nails in the process. You are the poster child for violence!!”
Mia responded—“You are absolutely right! And I own that I was wrong. I won’t pretend to be perfect. I feel terrible for acting that way and I take Self- Accountability.”
The Season 7 RHOP trailer featured Mia tossing a cocktail in Wendy’s face. Mia recently addressed the incident in an interview with Page Six.
“I would just say sometimes people talk too much,” Mia teased.
“I do not think that anybody deserves to have a glass [thrown] in their face. I’m not perfect. I make mistakes. I have this thing with food, and it flying in the air, clearly,” the Amilleon London CEO told the outlet, acknowledging that she lobbed salad greens at Candiace Dillard, during Season 6.
She continued—“I’m going to work on tossing things. … I immediately go into this, like, ‘Oh, my gosh Mia, no one deserves to have anything thrown at them.’ Like, that’s real rude. I will own that. Self-accountability 101. It’s not the nicest thing to do to anybody.”
Wendy described Mia’s aggression as an attempt to create an iconic “Housewives moment,” a characterization Mia denied.
“Well, I am a ‘Housewife,’ so I don’t look for ‘Housewives’ moments, OK? For the record,” she said. “Everybody has their own viewpoint on situations. All I have to say is tune in, see how it really plays out. I beg to disagree [with Osefo], but she is entitled to her opinion.”
Jacqueline Blake was introduced on the Bravo show as Mia’s best friend. The Human Resources Director is CEO of Ava & Blakely, a business named after her two daughters.
It appears that Mia and Jacqueline’s friendship took a nosedive after Jacqueline joined the cast, as the ladies no longer follow each other on social media. Many believe that Mia posted the incriminating clip to sabotage Jacqueline’s debut season on RHOP.
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs on Sundays at 8 pm, ET, on Bravo.
