As previously reported Candiace’s mom Ms. Dorothy was adamant that charges should be filed against Monique and told her daughter that “we don’t’ get into the gutter” while urging her to call a lawyer. Surprisingly Karen Huger, whose friends with both Monique and Candiace, said something similar and told Candiace that if she were in her shoes she’d press charges as well.
The urging from both ladies clearly prompted Candiace to move forward with legal action and next episode we’ll see her put Monique on blast with legal documents.
In a sneak peek of the next episode obtained by ET, the cast (sans Monique) is gathered at a celebration for Wendy Osefo’s baby, Kamrynn, and discuss Candiace pressing charges against her co-star.
“I’m stressed,” Candiace confesses. “I only very recently filed the charges and it was everywhere in five minutes. I was not expecting it to happen that fast, like…”
“So, is the goal for her to go to jail?” Robyn Dixon asks.
“The goal is for the court system to do what the court system needs to do,” Candiace replies.
That’s when Gizelle mentions that the charges could lead to a 12-year jail sentence for Monique.
Both Gizelle and Robyn say no one wants Monique to go to jail, to which Candiace replies, “We don’t?”
As we all know, Monique actually filed counter-assault charges against Candiace noting that Candiace has a “history” of “aggressive, threatening and belligerent conduct.”
An attorney for Monique added that Candiace hit Monique in the face with a wine glass, leaving her with a bloody nose and lacerated lip—thus leaving Monique no choice but to “defend herself” against the aggressor.
You can watch both ladies explain their side of the Cabernet combat below.
