Chris Samuels and Monique Samuels are ending their marriage after ten years.
“Real Housewives of Potomac” and “Love & Marriage: DC” alum Monique Samuels is a hot topic on social media right now. Hours ago, it was confirmed she filed for divorce from Chris Samuels. According to People Magazine, Monique first filed a complaint for absolute divorce back in April. She then filed an amended complaint for absolute divorce on June 15. The amendment is what possibly set off the media outlets to the matter.
Interestingly enough, Monique and Chris’ split was rumored late last year. Ashley Darby was doing press for the most recent season of RHOP. She confirmed she’s still good friends with Monique. And Monique was going through some type of change in her living situation. Not too long after, People Magazine reported the couple had separated. Chris and Monique then hopped on Instagram Live to shut down the reports.
Monique and Chris’ issues were addressed while they appeared on “Real Housewives of Potomac.” Chris’ mother called Monique a “heifer.” She also accused Monique of being a golddigger who needed to get her own income stream. Eventually, she apologized. And she did so while they filmed scenes at the Rainbow Baby party Monique and Chris threw. So it seemed as if Monique was working out the issues she had with her mother-in-law.

After Monique departed RHOP, she and Chris moved on to LAMDC. Monique said that she and Chris were on the brink of divorce before they started filming. But a spiritual retreat motivated Monique not to end it. So they decided to work on their marriage. However, they had tense moments on the new show. Monique complained that Chris wasn’t doing enough to help her with their household and kids. And it was the reason why she was so stressed out and overwhelmed.
While Monique and Chris have not yet addressed their impending divorce publicly, people have still been paying close attention to their social media actions. So they noticed that Chris has unfollowed Monique on Instagram since news of the divorce went viral.
