Following the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion there was a palpable shift. Fans of Monique Samuels, and her binder of shade, felt slighted after what they perceived to be an unfair and unbalanced attack on their girl by reunion host Andy Cohen. Immediately folks wanted him out, and after days of online chatter, Cohen is finally responding.
The winery war between Monique and cast mate Candiace Dillard dominated much of the RHOP storyline, and thus, fans felt it would be given proper airtime during the reunion, as well. However, while the matter was discussed, many felt that Andy seemingly took Candiace’s side and unfairly placed the blame squarely on Mo.
Andy is very biased and it shows. How does he want Monique to act? It's like he wants her to act overly emotional or "aggressive" but just because she's calm it's a problem?? Like shouldn't you be happy since you allegedly "don't condone violence"?#RHOP pic.twitter.com/xmLQAts4FW

Monique: Well they brought the rumor to the show.
Andy and the gang: NoOo YoU diD.
Production: *shows Gizelle bringing it up TWICE on camera*
Andy: See, Monique if you didn’t say anything, we never would’ve known.

Telling Mo her lawyer gave her bad advice? Not fun to watch u play favs. And why wasn’t Rinna throwing glass in Kim’s face treated as the violent attack that it was? U r messy, Andy.

Stop. He was questioning her husband’s finances, her music, etc. He was on her neck the entire time. Where was that energy for them white housewives? And Candiace is a grown woman, not a baby. They treated her like she was 5. Talk slick, get dealt with. Now she knows 🤷🏽♀️

Finally, Andy has addressed the rather large elephant in the room and he’s ironically blaming it on editing! According to Cohen, he went just as hard on Candiace, but it ended up on the cutting room floor.
However, looks like folks still aren’t buying his excuse…
Not @andy blaming editing on how he came off on the #rhop reunion after spending a little more than a decade shutting down housewives who complain about how they were edited on their shows. #wwhl #rhopreunion
