Many viewers took issue with Andy Cohen’s conduct and comments during the special as he questioned Monique Samuels about her fight with Candiace Dillard and appeared to bias toward her.

Now, he’s speaking on it. He said on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live:

“I was really pushing for this to be four parts. I really talked to Candiace a lot about her role in this and the fact that a lot of people think she provoked it, and she said ‘drag me.’ We talked about that in relation to what Kenya and Porsha went through, and I don’t think enough of that made it in the show, clearly. So, there you go.”





He continued:

“It’s not good to know unless we aired it. I don’t think it makes any difference because I know a lot of people were very upset.”

While Monique Samuels later quit the show, she said she didn’t take an issue with Andy Cohen’s behavior during the reunion.





She told All About The Tea: 

“I think he did what he felt that he was supposed to do, he did not want people to think that he was in any way shape or form off the hook and he had to go in. I would’ve appreciated it if that same energy was pointed in the other direction of people who needed that same degree of treatment.”

She continued:

“I’ve never had an issue with Andy. We text, he loves T’Challa, I sent him a bunch of child swag, I got my holiday gift from him and I texted him and thanked him for it. So we don’t have any issues.”

Do you think Andy Cohen was too biased toward Candiace Dillard? Comment and let us know.
