Monique Samuels Explains Decision To Depart ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’

Published: Monday 28th Dec 2020 by Sam

As reported, Monique Samuels announced her decision to leave the ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ following the fiery final part of the season 5 reunion.

The reality star’s stint on the show has been quite the roller-coaster, especially in the wake of her literal clash with castmate Candiace Dillard and exposé of Gizelle Bryant.

Still, she remained a firm favorite with RHOP fans.

Yet, Samuels is making clear that somewhere between the plots, binders, and seismic take-downs, it’s all become too much. Hence, her walking away from the show.

In a new interview with Fox 5, she and husband Chris expand on the decision – which they say is motivated by the need to put their family first.

Watch below…

Echoing earlier sentiments, we’ll miss Monique. She brought a lot to the show and, in some regards, it felt she didn’t get the fairest shot from some of her castmates during her entire stint.

At the same time (and we say this from the viewpoint of actually wanting her back on ‘Potomac’), one has to wonder what the season 6 dynamics would have been with so much division amongst the ladies. Indeed, things had grown so contentious that the show’s core concept (see: a group of friends kiki-ing and navigating light drama) would have felt near impossible given all that’s transpired. And we’ve all seen the brand of insufferable that occurs when such narratives are forced (see: Nene v Kenya).

In any case, we hope this is less a “goodbye” and more of a “see you later.” Because beyond us liking Mo, the true reality of such shows is that the cast always works best when there’s genuine history and genuine dynamics (whether good or bad). So, here’s hoping that’s factored into whoever is lined up to take her place next season.

Pending then, peep Monique’s new video for single ‘Drag Queens’

    Bye clown 🤡 you and your husband are weirdos who condone violence “I wish I could turn into Bruce Jenner so I can stomp a hole into you women”. Just pitiful and purely disgusting 🤮

    We. Do. Not. Care.

    A load of self-indulgent bull. She quit to save face as it was clear that apart from by Ashley and Karen, she was no longer welcome by the rest of the cast.

    I stan Monique. They’ll fire Candace after next season. The ratings will be low.

      Exactly. That is exactly what will happen.

      That’s So Raven, is that you? Didn’t know you can see the future 💀🤣

    Goodbye demon. TGJ swears they hate toxic people, trying to drag Nene every chance they get. YET wanting this literal witch on another season. Hypocrites. Women who don’t fit this blogs standard of Beauty and age get treated like dogs. Not the gay black men being this toxic too🤢

    She’s so thirsty. Always trying to control the narrative. She claims she only decided to quit after seeing how the last reunion episode was edited but she already has TV interviews booked? She better enjoy her 2 mins of fame cause she’ll be forgotten after this news cycle. Textbook narcissist.

    Monique and chris are my favorite couple on the show. They will be missed. I wouldn’t be watching without them and I don’t see how the show will be interesting from here. Ashley and Candace beefing each season is tired, Wendy don’t have a real storyline and I don’t see her lasting more than 2 seasons. Everyone else is friends and/or boring so it will be interesting to see where this goes.

    I love Mo and will not be watching this show anymore. Candice needs to grow up and watch what she saids to people. Fake people produce fake children. What you do to other people your children will do to you . Think about that Candice.

    • Kokolee December 29, 2020

      I feel Monique is leaving because she’s embarrassed about her actions and the other cast members don’t want to associate with her..what she did was truly ghetto and she should have apologized for putting her hands on anyone..I also believe she is hiding something that she doesn’t want exposed..you won’t be missed by me girl! Bye Felicia!

  9. UHoesFunny December 29, 2020

    So glad she’s gone. Go sort out your personal issues first babe, then come back. Or maybe not.

    How embarrassing, when Chris asked Gizelle does the baby look like me, lol no child he does not. He is her trainers baby. She ran her mouth and was rachet her mother in law was right. She will not be missed. They should replace her with Mariah Ul Huq from Married to Medicine, that would be an amazing cross over.

    She was the damn bully,girl bye you pathetic and the song sound like S***

    I didn’t watch the season so I don’t know what to make of her, however, the music was very much on point. I must say I prefer her to a lot the more prolific ones out there. I an respect that she can keep our attention without having to do the most salacious.
    Never knew she was rapper and she can spit a little….kudos
