Andy Cohen supports Monique Samuels returning to RHOP.
Monique Samuels took issue with how things went down behind the scenes of “Real Housewives of Potomac.” At times, she felt as if Gizelle Bryant received preferential treatment from producers. In fact, she says the reunion edited out scenes of Gizelle being frazzled by Monique’s binder and questions from Chris Samuels.
She also didn’t like the fact that the reunion never aired footage from Candiace Dillard discussing the dinner in which Gizelle brought up some malicious rumors about Monique’s marriage and son. Rumors alleged that Chase Samuels is not Chris’ biological son. And Monique allegedly fathered the child with her trainer. These rumors allegedly came about from a former friend of Monique’s. She also alleged that the rumors began to spread to the group first by Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, then Gizelle.
After Monique took issue with the editing of the reunion, she decided to leave the show. But Andy Cohen recently said that he would love for Monique to come back in the future.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight in which Andy discussed bringing former housewives back, he said, “I mean, we just brought Heather Dubrow back in Orange County and I thought that was great. It would be fun — I think it would be fun to bring someone back who no one would [expect] — I mean, people talk about Dorinda [Medley] or Lisa Vanderpump or… I always like the curveball and the people saying, ‘What?! You’re bringing back this person?!’ I think Monique [Samuels] would be fun in Potomac.”
Candiace would not be supportive of Monique’s return. In fact, she said she would leave the show if Monique was part of the season 6 cast.
