“Real Housewives of Potomac” star Monique Samuels has been a hot topic since her major blowup with Candiace Dillard. However, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have time to keep up with the drama on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” People have a lot to say about the latest episode. And so does Monique.

In fact, she doesn’t like what happened to Tanya Sam. In her opinion, the Cookie Lady was way out of line. She’s not so sure that the woman told the truth. So she’s not here for it.

    The Cookie Lady was very arrogant and thirsty for camera time. She should be embarrassed.

      Exactly. She thought coming on the show being messy would be a good look but it definitely wasn’t. She came off like a bully. Kenya too.

      This b-tch is so desperate to have camera time and thinking that Kenya and Cynthia are her friends, b-tch they call you the cookie lady, that should tell you something, no one even knows your name

        Buddha with Kenya Moore we get your business shut down because people will lose interest in coming to your cookie store King is life is just like a crumble of dry bread. She’s trying to throw everybody down because her marriage is on the Rocks now and you can look and see if she kisses Mark’s a-s just so he won’t go off if I don’t talk to her but cooking later. You wrong don’t get your business shut down by not having nobody coming to you to spend no money because of what you did that look real

          Cookie Lady don’t get your story shutdown by people not coming to your store to spend money because you told Tanya that you were gorgeous. No, ma’am. You have bags you have dark circles and I if I had I’ve been sitting at that table you two been wearing those cookies you Cynthia and Kenya Cynthia. I am so disappointed in you. You’re not my favorite no more. Follow behind Kenya Cynthia you going to be disliked?

            Kenya don’t like women. Kenya has bad Mommy issues like some mean and I’m not trying to be funny. She doesn’t like women black women especially. She’s been so hurt by her mom with no resolution no Therepy that even though she says she loves Cynthia look at how she gets down with her vocabulary towards Cynthia. And her abandonment issues are so strong she lets Mark do her like that cause she know no real whole man might ever want her. I feel sorry for her. She hates Alpha Females because she acts like she’s one but she’s an injured animal tying to act vicious to the end.

      The blame goes to Kenya, remember Kenya started all of this mess. Kenya is jealous of women who are happly married.she an evil woman.

      That’s more than thirsty. The saying misery loves company, so true.
      Cynthia, you’re better than the garbage Kenya carries on. You’re so classy, don’t be dragged into that mire. Cookie lady cannot hold a candle to Tanya. Tanya is gorgeous. Cookie lady is frumpy. She should stay in the kitchen 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      Fu#k Kenya, corny a-s Cynthia and the cookie lady! Kenya have major issues and can’t keep a man at all so she wants to ruin everyone else happiness! Cynthia is a follower and as far as the cookie lady, I would have stuffed those d-mn cookies down her throat!

      Yes, she came in with an attitude…as if Tanya had done something to her, not that she is the one trying to get a spot on the show…by any means necessary.
      Go peddle your cookies elsewhere lady… Tanya carries herself like a lady…and you came at her, just like someone from the (excuse the term)the wrong side of the track.

        It’s not about where you from cause poverty stricken people or people who hustle in the streets can have manners. She acted like an ignorant chick straight up. Acted like she was real hard Kenya do that to and will continue until she run into the right person that’s gone show her something hashtag these hands Lol

    I agree with Monique. However Cynthia and Kenya are two miserable and messy women, to sit up there and try to destroy someone’s relationship especially when they have never done anything to them. The Snake is Cynthia and I’m starting to believe everything Nene said about her!

    • Marilynn Wray

      February 16, 2020 at 11:27 am

      Exactly!!!! Nene may be crazy & messy sometimes but she’s been warning us about Shady a-s, playing victim, trying to keep my hands clean Cynthia.

      I agree totally. Cynthia and Kenya are immature. They are miserable and misery loves company. They are gullible for
      male companionship at any cost. At their age, I donot see
      any maturity at all.

      Cynthia is a airhead and messy on the low and play clueless when confronted. She’s just as thirsty as Kenya is when it comes to a man, she made Mike or whatever the guy name is propose to her. Inviting herself to his home let the man lead. Don’t be so obvious . As for Kenya the cat, she has her noise so high in the air that she will always have relationship issues men or women. Mark is the right person to put her in her place . He look and act as if he hates her.” Miss America ” so long ago no body cares. Yes you wear wigs and it’s an insult for you to think people are going to believe that’s your natural hair. So you are swindling money through your so called NATURAL HAIR CARE LINE and you wear wigs. Do you use your own products?

    • T

      February 18, 2020 at 4:07 pm

      Truth, if Cynthia is so ecstatic and in Love… Go plan you wedding and put your house in order. You have a child to be concerned about and now steps to adjust to and their female insecurities, without their new stepmom being soooo messy.

        Kenya needs to be fired and to take Cynthia and Kandi both with her. Her antics are growing old and she’s always going to do something or start drama for camera time. She needs to worry about her husband and his other family in NY and keep that sane energy with him.

        Where is the petition Inwasnt in favor.of Kenya coming anyway. So mad Phadera messed up because she would have came for Kenya thirsty azz. All this over a d*** wig.

      She called Tanya a c-nt! Oh my God! She is a disgusting person and is a mother to a little girl. I lost all respect for her. Her time is coming, Karma don’t play, Kenya. And Cynthia, why did you sit there and not step in when Kenya was going at Tanya. Cynthia, I gotta say this, you’re just as bad as Kenya.

        Why do you Kenya supporters downplay everything she does? I want y’all to keep this same energy the next time Marlo makes a comment about Kenya’s mom abandoning her and when NeNe tries to spit on Kenya. Calling someone the c word is absolutely offensive. Had someone said it to Kenya y’all would be mad.

          Right Kenya supporters don’t think she can do anything wrong but they have a lot to say about Porsha, Kandi and Cynthia should’ve checked Kenya for her messy behavior towards Tanya.

    Kenya loves to try and destroy anyone that has a good relationship with their partner…I hated her 3 seasons ago,she was always messy…and Kandy and Cynthia are just as messy…I watch this show the year it started and always thought cynthia played both sides and that’s a sneaky bitch to me…I believe everything Nene says about Cynthia and if people keep watching they will see it too, if they haven’t already…Kenya needs to change her hate for other woman bc she has such a precious daughter,bring her up right.

    Cynthia is a back stabber. She invited the cookie lady out, so she could tell Tanya about Paul. She the tells Tanya that Kenya was talking about her at the table. She never mentions that she tried to instigate the issue by inviting the cookie lady out. I hope Tanya picked up on Cynthia being the one to try and mess up her relationship with Paul. Cynthia should worry about Mike and his many women friends. The youngest one in the group keeps giving him the eye while he is talking. That stop lying look. His daughter didn’t look happy from the beginning. I’m sure she knows he isn’t being honest.

    I think kandy told Kenya something that’s why she going say something at the Reunion to Tanya kandy always in something Todd will never take care of them kids look how he did his daughter soon a-s she moved out he want on a shopping spree brought that like Semi truck Another restaurant spot wondering is his daughter making payment on her car or what kind car suv kandy acting like well she not my daughter well he not going take care of none of them kids his new woman kandy listen to your mother better have it set ware all 3 set for life cause Todd getting everything why he can now and after y’all never treated his daughter like she was part of y’all family cause if so y’all would had been getting her maybe her and your daughter would have been close but we never seen y’all 3 go out together get nails done anything y’all may her seen like and outsider

    Tanya should have gotten up when the cookie lady walked in. I don’t discuss my relationship with nobody, whether good or bad. She is very classy doesn’t need these people around her. Kenya is cursed, cynthia is not far from there. Khandi should worry about mr nobody of her. I Don’t know why kandi is afraid if kenya!! If I get kenya for 15mns, I will straight her up, she will look like 1. Fake ugly a-s. I feel sorry for her daughter. Maybe she might give her away too just like her mom: it run in the genes

    In closing to this hilarious comedy skit that was protrayed between the lady’s at this table setting I must say that Tanya handled it gracefully…however we must consider that where Kenya is coming from has less to do with the solidity of her hair being long it has more to do with the shade that Tanya brought to the ladies not to mention Marlo being there without Kenya being present with the implication that she weArs a wig for other reasons than simply a protective style… in any event maybe if the initial conversation that Cynthia had with Tanya included Kenya in the first place matters could have been hashed out instead of splashed out…cause honey in the end that was not shade from any trees that was clouds and rain that day…
