‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ Star Monique Samuels Reveals if She’s Leaving the Show

Photo Credit: Bravo/YouTube

Gizelle was very critical of Monique’s altercation with Candiace.

Real Housewives of Potomac” star Monique Samuels had an eventful upcoming season. She had a physical altercation with Candiace Dillard. Things got really messy afterward, too. And it’s said that this situation caused a division with the cast. Monique and Candiace probably won’t be able to mend things anytime soon. But the situation has also worsened things between Gizelle Bryant and Monique as well.

Gizelle said she no longer wants to be around Monique. Rumors spread claiming Gizelle wanted Monique off the show. And she had support from Robyn Dixon and Candiace Dillard.

However, Monique has some support. Sources claimed Ashley Darby and Karen Huger don’t want Monique off the show.

Regardless, Gizelle had a lot to say about the altercation while filming. She said RHOP has always stayed above the stereotypes. So Monique ruined that by assaulting Candiace. And this not a good look for black women.

Is Monique leaving RHOP?

At one point, Gizelle’s comments really bothered Monique. It even seemed as if she was willing to walk away from the show. Rumors would only intensify when she didn’t go on the cast trip. However, Monique would later say she didn’t go due to legal reasons. At the time, she and Candiace had taken their feud to court. All charges have since been dismissed though.

Although the season won’t start up until August 2, some fans have already been wondering if the upcoming season will be Monique’s last.

Monique recently did an interview with “The Morning Show” to promote her new single, “Drag Queens.” She was asked if she’s leaving the show. And Monique said, “Oh, I’m not going anywhere. I’m not going anywhere. It’s going to take a lot more to get me to leave.”

    I’m still sad that Monique & Candiace fell out because they had a “sister connection”, but the damage is done. I’m glad she’s not leaving because Monique actually lives in Potomac unlike those low self esteem GEB’S.

    Now let’s drag Ms so called “pedigree” . How can Gizelle talk about stereotypes when she was gonna “blow Monique’s face off” in season 3. Let’s keep it all the way real, Gizelle hates Monique for interfering in her relationship with Sherman Douglas by exposing his dirty secrets to the world. She will NEVER forgive her for that because Sherman is the man she really wanted {truth be told}.

    She needs to take her energy off Monique & figure out why she can’t find a REAL good man who is 100 percent STRAIGHT that will commit to her . Instead Gizelle had to crawl back in bed with her notorious womanizing, community peen, serial baby making, DL ex husband Jamal Bryant to have a storyline & somebody to film with in order to have some type of relevance. We know Robyn is pathetic also & follows behind her puppet master Gizelle. The new season is gonna be interesting.

      Omg you said s mouthful! I just thought Giselle was jealous of Monique’s lifestyle and was a hater but this really explains it. I totally dismissed the fact that Monique let the Sherman thing out! But like you I’m so glad to her my girl Monique is not going anywhere. She is the show. Giselle, Robyn and the dragged don’t really bring anything to the show imo.

        I concur with the above. Gizelle brings ZILCH because she doesn’t have a storyline that she can’t unravel without getting her weave caught up. I actually think Robin should be gone, Gizelle is a Mariah. Monique actually is Potomac as well as Karen.

        Gizelle has not like Monique since she checked her about the house shade in episode one.

      Preach….you are so right. Gizelle is truly tired, shallow and insecure and Candiance is no better. if she was truly a friend from the beginning she would have been a woman and worked out her differences with Monique. Now she’s a Bubble head along with Robin and it shows her lack of character sitting around gossiping about someone’s else relationship. i really wish those three were replaced

      And that’s a 💯 fact and sad that they ars so miserable in their relationship, they want to hate on a sista that’s holding it down, n her husband got her back,no matter who or what 😉

      I would like to know, why do people talk trash about people, like the anonymous person talking about Gizille/Jamal, and want to remain anonymous.
      Don’t throw rocks , then hide behind them. More than likely you just want to be heard.

    I’m sure they’d love to see her go and that’s why she shouldn’t.

    D-mn I was hoping her fake a-s would leave. Just like Chris mama it’s something about this heffa. She’s been in the show for 4 season and we have yet to meet ANY of her friends or family besides her brother who is the help. The only thing Monique has going for herself is she married a rich football player.

    While Gizelle is so worried about Karen and Monique, is she ever going to explain why her makeup company flopped? It’s not even sold at Target anymore. And that restaurant she invested in was permanently closed down as well. Maybe she should focus her energy on those things instead of being so mean on a TV show.

    • Jamaica941

      Lies.. do research before you start talking, you can go to target website and her products are listed.

      Girl EVERY FLOP Beauty was gone but now they have a couple of products available in short supply on the Target website. I don’t think it will be around at all in a few years though. People don’t buy it like that. That’s why she’s back with her ex husband who had multiple kids on her. Everybody can’t do what Rihanna did.

        Yeah I’ve never heard someone say yeah girl let me get me some Every Hue Beauty! Gizelle should focus more on expanding her brand because most people haven’t even heard of it. It wasn’t even at Target when I searched for it a few months ago. Zero results. Now you’re telling me it’s a couple of products online. Yet, she brags like she discovered Fenty Beauty. Meanwhile, she’s always laughing at Karen’s perfume line. Gizelle is such a mean girl. I don’t get why anyone would like her. She’s the typical stuck up mean girl from school. She picks at people because she’s miserable.

          I totally 💯 agree

      • Jessica Michaels

        July 18, 2020 at 12:47 pm

        Yep. Only 3 products being sold in a very limited supply and one product has terrible reviews. And Every Hue doesn’t even have a working website. Restaurant closed not too long after she bought it. So yes, I agree she should focus on those things instead of being nasty on RHOP. She’s mean to everyone she can’t turn into a puppet. I’m very disappointed Candiace has teamed up with her now. She’s better than that. And Gizelle can’t be trusted.

      Totally agree, usually most of the time if a mother does not like the son’s wife there is something wrong. No one acknowledges what Monique did to Gizelle about Sherman no one ever say’s that Monique was wrong as among other wrong things she has done. I am not a big fan of Monique or Gizelle, but both of them have done things I didn’t agree with, Gizelle gets totally dogged out if she twitches her eye the wrong way, and Monique gets praised no Matter what she does. I think Monique is more jealous of Gizelle than what people realize, I don’t care who Monique gets into it with she always drag’s Gizelle in the middle of it, and who would be jealous of Monique, when all her husband want her to do is have babies so he can keep her tied down, you mark my words he is going to try to get her to have more babies, and like he said a while back, he wants her to cater to his needs.

        Actually, black single mothers not liking their son’s wives is not a fail proof indicator that something is wrong with the wife. A lot of the times they aren’t able to accept that a woman will now come before them. And if there’s money involved, they may begin to feel like the spouse is taking money away from them. An example of that is Kandi and Mama Joyce. Perhaps this is why his mother kept saying his stay at home wife (Monique) needs a job. It’s like she couldn’t fathom that another black woman is being pampered and provided for because that’s not something she or most back women experienced. Meanwhile in other cultures, being a stay at home mother is respected. When black women do it, we’re bums and failures. No one ever called the white woman married to the multimillionaire I used to work with a gold digger or said she needed to get a job. People are so used to black women being in dysfunctional relationships that you sit on here and over exaggerate things to make it seem like Monique is in a bad marriage. So you take a man loving his wife so much and being a dad who wants a big family as a negative. Meanwhile, you think Monique is jealous of Gizelle, a woman who was publicly embarrassed because the black man she married did the typical dysfunctional thing in our community and had multiple babies outside of marriage. Gizelle has been jealous of Monique since Monique said she has four homes. And you bring up Sherman’s ex wife but forgot to mention it was Charisse who came up with the idea to bring her around to get even with Gizelle. Monique agreed to it, but honestly, who cares? Gizelle has spent seasons plotting on and lying on the others. She got a taste of her own medicine for once.

          Love it say it again He loves her and wants a family isn’t that the dream husband…lol so sad as you said can’t recognize love in a marriage but becky can stay home no judgment…smh

            July 19, 2020 at 2:34 pm

            Exactly. Sadly, I read comments like that all the time from black women. Monique has her flaws but her marriage is the most stable and happiest one on the show. And it bothers a lot of people. We also need to stop bashing black women for being stay at home mothers. It’s ignorant.

        Why would Monique be jealous of Gizelle? She has nothing Monique doesn’t have. Gizelle is the jealous one and to be honest, Monique isn’t the only person Gizelle is jealous of. Gizelle just has a jealous spirit.

        Monique and Karen are my favorite. They are the reason I watched the show. If Monique leaves, I’m finding a different show to watch.

    Gizelle has been jealous of Monique from day one. She can’t stand to see a black woman married well whose husband didn’t have multiple kids on her. A lot of black women are jealous of Monique honestly.

    Monique is the most genuine of the cast on there. Gizelle needs some business that’s why she’s always up in someone else’s. To me, she’s a low-key mean girl and Robin is her minion.

    That’s right Monique! Slay girl!! Don’t allow the “green-eyed monsters” or that Gerbil, to chase you off your platform. At first I thought Giselle’s jealousy of you was harmless banter, but now I see that she is a true “mean girl” who can’t let go of the past differences between you and her. So much so that she would use Candiace and Robin to try and hurt you, but then that’s what “mean girls” do!

    Listen everybody peeped how Gizelle aka { I never go back & I never give 2nd chances} hated Monique since season 2 when the cameras came on. She talked about Monique’s hairdo & tried to shade & embarrass her in front of the other ladies, but Monique caught the shade & threw it back in her face with the “four homes” comment. Ever since that encounter & moving forward insecure, jealous, desperate Gizelle ain’t been right since.

    The other comments that were noted is that the low self esteem GEB’S bring nothing to the show, neither one of them live in Potomac , both of them are divorced from lying cheating ex husbands, they have nothing else going on except raising kids & being in other ppl’s business. It’s sad & TRAGIC that both of them have to climb back in bed with the cheating ex husband’s to have a storyline in order to get those Bravo checks.

    Gizelle has other things to worry about instead of plotting to get Monique off the show.

    1. Jamal’s new baby daughter from Ronita that lives in Virginia

    2. How her business ventures have FAILED

    3. Jamal’s DL activities in ATLANTA that A LOT of ppl are whispering about .

    She’s gonna get dragged for filth this season coming up. ☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️

    Monique and Karen are the show! If Monique leaves you will see the ratings drop, PERIOD! Monique and Karen are the real mcCoy. The other women in my opinion are messy, and have low self esteem!

    I am glad Monique set the record straight bout her staying on the show. Giselle needs to pray bout that lil messy ex of hers and stay out other ppl business. Robyn’s just a flunkie for Giselle. It’s so sad that women can get that jealous of another woman’$ coins .dang….
