Former “Real Housewives of Potomac” star Monique Samuels shared the news that her pet bird, T’Challa, died in a freak accident.
T’Challa became a fan favorite during Monique’s last season on the show, but he was prone to wandering off.
“On July 1st around 5pm my entire world was rocked. My [T’Challa] was killed in a freak accident,” she wrote.
“I can’t even believe I’m typing this right now. I barely can utter his name without crying. For those who love their animals, I know you feel my pain. It’s indescribable. The pain is intense and I’m just completely baffled, overwhelmed and cannot stop the emotional rollercoaster I am on right now. My children keep breaking down which makes the pain even worse,” she added.
Fans took to the comments section to offer their condolences.
Last month, Monique made blog headlines after she threw some shade at former castmate Gizelle Bryant.
The pair had beef throughout Monique’s time on the show.
“I think that she’s really in real life miserable. And it’s starting to show. Her neck is falling and she’s not aging well. She’s very miserable. And she can’t keep a man. She can’t even keep a pastor,” she said on “Gagging with Jason Lee,” adding that Gizelle “Can’t even get a pastor to be faithful.”
Monique added, “Look at season one and then look at the upcoming season. I’m assuming you’ll be able to see the difference,” she explained. “She must not be good with money because I don’t see where she’s spending it. And she should be making a pretty good dime right now. But she probably had to pay Pastor Holy Wh*re for last season.”
Monique is no longer on the show but viewers will be introduced to Mia Thornton, who is already creating waves on the show — and the sixth season has not even aired yet.
She’s rumored to have some friction with Dr. Wendy Osefo.
