Osefo scolded Samuels for her part in the fight. Samuels says she’s happy with how Osefo handled her own incident with Thornton. “I don’t know the entire story, but I applaud Wendy for not getting physical as I did after I was hit in the face with a glass,” she told The Neighbhorood Talk. “She had every reason to defend herself after being splashed in the face and then apparently hit with a purse, and she chose to use her words instead.

She added: “One thing Wendy said to me back then at Karen’s home was she would never get physical, she would use her words. Clearly, she lived up to that statement in this moment. I told her at the season 5 reunion she and her family would be next,” said Monique. “The hate with some of those women is not for the camera. They’re real life miserable. One thing Wendy should understand is that it’s not about her actions or lack there of, she could have sat there quietly and they still would have found reason to ice her out.”
