Candiace Dillard Bassett Celebrates Triumph as Co-Star’s Husband Faces Legal Setback

ROCKVILLE, Maryland – Candiace Dillard Bassett, star of reality TV show “The Real Housewives of Potomac,” has achieved a legal victory in her ongoing legal battle against co-star Monique Samuels’ husband, Chris Samuels. The case stems from a physical altercation that occurred between Candiace and Monique during a filming of the show. On Friday, a judge ruled that Candiace’s lawsuit against Chris can proceed, despite his attempt to have it dismissed.

The incident in question took place last year at a winery in Loudoun County, Virginia, where the cast was filming an episode. According to court documents, the altercation began when Candiace and Monique engaged in a heated argument. It escalated when Monique allegedly grabbed Candiace by the hair and pulled her down, leading to a physical scuffle. The altercation was captured on camera and subsequently aired on the show.

In her lawsuit, Candiace accuses Chris of playing a role in the fight by encouraging and supporting Monique’s actions. She claims that he acted with “malicious intent” and seeks monetary compensation for damages and emotional distress. Chris, however, maintains that he did not provoke or participate in the altercation and argues that Candiace’s lawsuit lacks merit.

Chris filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, arguing that it infringed on his freedom of speech and was an attempt to stifle his ability to express his opinions about the incident. However, the judge disagreed and ruled that Candiace’s claims were not barred by the First Amendment.

As the legal battle continues, fans of the show are eagerly watching to see how the drama unfolds. This altercation has caused significant rifts within the cast, with some siding with Candiace and others supporting Monique. The outcome of this lawsuit could have lasting impacts on the future of the show and the relationships between the cast members.

Candiace Dillard Bassett’s legal victory marks a significant step forward in her pursuit of justice. The ruling allows her lawsuit against Chris Samuels to proceed, bringing her one step closer to a resolution in this high-profile case. As the legal proceedings continue, both Candiace and Chris will have the opportunity to present their arguments and provide evidence to support their claims. Only time will tell how this contentious legal battle ultimately unfolds.
