The new season of Real Housewives of Potomac has stopped shooting but the fallout from an incident during the shooting is still active. The complaints filed against each other by Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard were dismissed.
In October, rumors swirled that enemies had entered it during a distribution dinner. Candiace would have thrown a glass in the face of Monique who replied by lowering her head and “dragging” her.
About a month after the incident, Candiace filed a second degree assault complaint against her co-star, who then filed a meter.
On Friday, the director of public affairs for Montgomery County, Maryland, announced that the state attorney’s office had dismissed the two cases.
Monique’s lawyer made a statement to People who said, in part: “We are pleased with the final decision by the Montgomery County Attorney General’s office not to prosecute Ms. Samuels for the assault charges her by Candiace Dillard Bassett. Consistent with past wrongdoings, offensive words and conduct, and reputation for physical threats and verbal explosions in the series, through interviews with third parties and the review of other evidence, the government decided not to go ahead with my client, Ms. Samuels. , ‘
Meanwhile, Dillard’s lawyer also made a statement: “We are very, very pleased that the prosecutor has neither charged Ms. Dillard Bassett with any criminal charges nor prosecuted the criminal charges laid against her. As you may recall, the accused’s legal team accused our client of being the assailant and assaulted Ms. Samuels with a glass of wine. However, today’s decision makes it very clear that this is a false allegation. I am still convinced that my client was the victim, but I hope that all parties can move forward now. “
The lawyer also added that he hoped that Monique would stop murdering her client’s character.
Earlier, Candiace said that she could bring civil action against her enemy, it is not known if she will, but she is legally free to do so.
