Bravotv.com: Tell us about the rest of this clash on the street and where you were at when it ended.
Karen Huger: Emotions were running at an all time high for the ladies. I thought by wrapping up my event it would put an end to the clash but, no such luck. The ladies took it to the streets. It was shameful. After everyone finally left, I was grateful that no one was hurt. Moving forward, when planning my events, I will be more selective about who I invite among the ladies.
Bravotv.com: What do you think about Monique breaking down after that clash about thinking she met real friends? Did you realize she was so hurt?
KH: I spoke to Monique briefly after the clash and encouraged her to never let the ladies push her buttons or take her to a negative place. Monique was very hurt and disappointed that some of the ladies who she had extended her friendship to, would turn around and attack her. While it pains me to watch Monique so upset, it’s understandable that she would have a breaking point. The constant attacks and bickering has gone on far too long. Monique does not deserve this.
Bravotv.com: Why do you feel like a kindred spirit to Monique against the “bully team”? Do you stand by your words about Gizelle and Robyn?
KH: I have compassion for Monique in this situation. Unfortunately, I know firsthand how it feels to be attacked by the “bully team”. Everyone has witnessed Gizelle and Robyn’s attempted attacks on my family. While I’ve moved on and forgiven, I have not forgotten. One would think that they would have learned it’s not a good look and hang up their grown mean girl act for good.
Bravotv.com: What do you think about Ashley’s apology to Monique and that sit down in general? Do you think Robyn should have been there, too, after that umbrella moment?
KH: Ashley is a seasoned expert in backhanded apologies. Robyn should have reached out and had a one on one moment with Monique.
