A stripper scandal and teetering marriage are disclosed, as the new Housewife makes her own mark.
The ladies of Potomac are back and, wowza, did they bring the drama for the highly-anticipated fifth season.
In the new trailer for "The Real Housewives of Potomac," the explosive fight between Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard Bassett is teased, as clips of the brawl that reportedly ended in a lawsuit are revealed for the first time.
Back in November, Monique and Candiace shocked fans after they accused each other of second-degree assault following an alleged incident on October 16. The charges against both Housewives were later dropped.
The clip released on Wednesday appears to show Candiace stepping towards Monique at an outdoor party, as Monique says, "You want me to?" while flipping Candiace's hair. A scuffle begins before the trailer quickly cuts to a production employee holding Monique back as she screams, "Get off of me, get off of me!"
"I never thought as black women we would be right here, but we are," Karen Huger later addresses a gathering at her home appearing to refer to the chaotic confrontation. Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, Robyn Dixon, Monique, Candiace and new Housewife Wendy Osefo are part of the group in attendance.
"It's not something you can brush under the rug, but you've got to address this," adds Karen.
Gizelle calmly chimes in, "We've been able to hold ourselves above the stereotype, and in 5 minutes, she took it away," seemingly speaking about Monique. Later in the trailer, Gizelle appears to tell Monique, "I, by no means, want to be near you."
