Ashley Reveals What Monique and Candiace Were Like at the RHOP Season 5 Reunion

Ashley Darby previews a "very intense" Real Housewives of Potomac reunion to come.

Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett will finally come face to face at the upcoming Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 reunion following their altercation at the winery earlier this season — and we can already tell that emotions will be running high.

How to Watch

Catch up on The Real Housewives of Potomac on Peacock or the Bravo App.

Ashley Darby revealed what that reunion between Monique and Candiace was like during her December 6 appearance on the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen After Show. In the above clip, Ashley even shares why she was surprised by Monique and Candiace's interactions that day.

However, when it came to Ashley seeing Candiace again after they failed to rebuild their friendship this season, Ashley said, "It doesn't faze me at all to see Candiace."

As Andy Cohen has previously noted, the reunion became particularly dramatic when the RHOP ladies were joined by their significant others. "There was a lot of emotions," Andy said during the December 6 WWHL After Show. "And I was surprised in the directions that the conversation went, especially when some of the husbands joined."

Ashley agreed, adding, "Andy, oh my gosh, yeah... And you know what's crazy? I didn't even know a lot of that stuff had happened, because so many things had gone on on social media and this and that."

Ashley also recalled seeing "Gizelle [Bryant] getting so upset." "It was very intense," she said.

Gizelle shared a similar tease of the reunion during an episode of Bravo's Chat Room last month. "A major [breakdown] recently, and you guys will see as a little tease to the reunion, is I was sitting there very nice and pretty and everybody and their grandmother was coming for me for about eight hours — and then in the last two to three hours, I just lost it," she said. "Wait and see, it was a doozy... It didn't go well for me."

Also on the December 6 WWHL After Show, Andy called the binder Monique brought with her to the reunion "the most well organized assortment of receipts that I've seen in 15 years of doing this," with Ashley adding. "We all have our own section. It's divided by name."
