Monique Samuels departed RHOP after she assaulted Candiace Dillard Bassett.
“Real Housewives of Potomac” cast members have been thinking about Monique Samuels quite often. This is due to Mia Thornton and Wendy Osefo’s onscreen altercation. Mia invited all of the ladies to Miami. She then hit up her “friend” Peter Thomas so they could have dinner at Bar One. Interestingly enough, Peter used the opportunity to discuss Wendy Osefo. And he told Mia that he had “beef” with Wendy. She supposedly approached Peter about opening up a Nigerian lounge together. However, Peter said the deal stalled out. He believes Wendy has cooled off on pursuing the business idea. Plus, he thought it was rude that she came to Miami without giving him a heads-up.
Mia confronted Wendy about all of this. Wendy thought Mia was being ridiculous. She went on to tell Mia that the only man she checks in with is Eddie Osefo. So she and Eddie don’t do things the way Mia and Gordon Thornton do.
Well, Mia responded to this by throwing her drink at Wendy. Wendy was furious. So the verbal war between them continued. And eventually, Mia also assaulted Wendy with her purse.
Candiace Dillard Bassett referred to Monique Samuels as unemployed before LAMDC exit was revealed.
Ashley Darby and Karen Huger think Mia took things way too far. However, Robyn Dixon and Gizelle Bryant have accused Wendy of “antagonizing” Mia. So they don’t have a lot of empathy for Wendy. And Wendy thinks this makes Gizelle and Robyn hypocrites since they were so against violence when it was Monique in the hot seat.
After Wendy cited Monique and accused Robyn and Gizelle of being hypocrites; Monique gave her thoughts on the drama. And she said that she respected that Wendy kept her composure. However, she wasn’t able to when she was hit in the face with a glass. Monique also said that she knew Wendy would be the next target after she left RHOP. Monique had moved on to “Love & Marriage: DC.”
It turns out that Candiace was most likely hinting at Monique’s departure from LAMDC. According to the Jasmine Brand, Monique and Chris Samuels will not be returning for Season 2 of “Love & Marriage: DC.” Apparently, this first appeared to be the case after the couple didn’t appear in the first round of promos for the upcoming season. However, the publication made it clear that Chris and Monique made the decision to walk away.
Monique confirmed their departure on her radio show earlier this morning. And she said they decided it was time to leave when the contract offered to them didn’t meet their expectations.
“So yes it is true. Chris and I will not be returning. At this point, I think we’re done with reality TV honestly. I’m just at a place in my life where I will never again allow myself to be devalued. The contract has to make sense for me. And when I’m filming, I’m giving my all. So if you want all of me, you gotta make sure that paperwork is straight.”
