Monique Samuels Brings Out the 'Thirst Book' in First Look at the Three-Part RHOP Reunion
The Real Housewives of Potomac season 5 reunion will air in three parts starting Dec. 13
The first look at the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion is here — and it does not disappoint.
In PEOPLE’s exclusive teaser for the three-part event — airing Dec. 13, Dec. 20 and Dec. 27 on Bravo — housewives Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Ashley Darby, Robyn Dixon, Monique Samuels, Candiace Dillard Bassett and Dr. Wendy Osefo rehash the season’s most explosive moments, and they brought receipts.
“We have broken each other this year,” Karen, 57, tells her fellow cast members. “Talk to God, do whatever you have to do to get this right. This is a new beginning if we are willing to put together.”
The clip then shows her throwing criticisms at Gizelle, 50. “I am obsessed with your clothing,” Karen begins. “Your taste sucks, but it's been very therapeutic in quarantine.”
“Did anyone bring any receipts?” reunion host Andy Cohen later asks, before Monique reveals that she did. “Oh my God, Monique has a binder.”
“The thirst book,” Candiace, 33, comments.
Her book comes in handy when the women discuss Michael Darby’s infidelity during his marriage with Ashley.
“An old clip has resurfaced of Michael and its damning,” Cohen says. “I’ve got it in my receipt book,” Monique then confirms.
The drama taking center stage, however, is the rift between Monique and Candiace. The pair, seeing each other in person for the first time since their fight, go head-to-head about their tumultuous altercation — and the husbands get involved.
“If we don’t get to owning up to this it's gonna be some real mess up on the stage,” Monique’s husband, Chris Samuels, says during part three of the reunion, in which the men joined their spouses.
“Please let me handle this,” he later tells his wife, to which Cohen instructs him to “sit down.”
“What was your emotional reaction after you saw the footage?” Andy then asks Monique, seeming to be referring to their physical fight last November, which resulted in them accusing each other of second-degree assault and filing complaints in court.
“I said ‘Okay well if I’m fired I’m gonna go finish her off,’” Monique said.
Appearing to get overwhelmed, Candiace walks away from the stage, telling the group, “I need a break.”
“Hurt people hurt people,” Chris Samuels says as the clip comes to an end. “Go get some help.”
Part 1 of The Real Housewives of Potomac season five reunion will air Sunday, December 13, at 9:15PM ET/PT. Part 2 is Sunday, December 20, at 9:00PM ET/PT and Part 3 is Sunday, December 27, at 9:00PM ET/PT.
