Monique Samuels Quits ‘Real Housewives Of Potomac’: I’m Over It

Monique Samuels revealed that she is leaving Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Potomac Sunday night (Dec. 27th). She made the announcement as the dramatic fifth season came to a close with the third and final part of the reunion special.

Just after it aired, Monique Samuels, who joined the show in its second season, took to Instagram to let her fans and supporters know she was leaving the show.

“It was a crazy ride. It’s not easy doing reality TV. To be quite honest y’all, I’m over it. I’m over it. So, I appreciate everything that people have done for me. Everybody that’s been Team Monique, I love y’all, I thank y’all, but when you cross certain lines there’s no going back. And for me my family is that line.”

She continued:

“The opinion of my family and my kids, and what they think about anything I do is more valuable to me than anybody’s opinion. So, I’m over it…When the hate becomes real, I’m over it… I thank God that my husband and I are in a position where we don’t really need for anything. I’m blessed, I’m grateful. That’s not me bragging, that’s just me being absolutely 100. If my kids were to get older, and say they watched everything and they watched the show and they watched all of these different things hapening behind the scenes, what response can I give them? What would satisfy that?”

She went on to say:

“Gaslight me once, gaslight me twice, gaslight me three times? Nah. I throw you this [peace sign]. And that’s what it is.”

This season was certainly a dramatic one for Monique Samuels as she was involved in a physical altercation with her former friend Candiace Dillard.

The incident was a key topic during the reunion special, as well as speculation that Candiace Dillard and RHOP star Gizelle Bryant previously plotted to spread a rumor that Monique Samuels’ husband, Chris Samuels, wasn’t the father of their youngest child.
