Monique Samuels, one of the favorite cast members of Real Housewives of Potomac, has confirmed her exit from the reality television show following a tumultuous season.
Samuels has been embroiled in a torrid back and forth with castmate Candiace Dillard — with the pair even coming to blows at the top of the season.
“It was a crazy ride. It’s not easy doing reality TV and to be honest y’all, I’m over it,” Samuels told her fans on Instagram Live.
“So I appreciate everything 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. And the opinion of my family and my kids, and what they think about anything that I do is more valuable to me than anybody’s opinion. So I’m over it.”
She continued, “Love y’all, appreciate everything, but I’m over it. So when the hate becomes real, I’m over it. So 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 just me being absolutely 100. And if my kids were to get older and say they watched everything and they watched the show or they watched all these different things that’s happening behind the scenes, what response can I give them? What would satisfy that?”
The reality television star then confirmed her exit from the show.
“So gaslight me once, gaslight me twice, gaslight me three times? Nah. I throw you this. And that’s what it is,” she said while throwing up a peace sign.
We wish her all the success in the world as she moves on from the show. She will be missed.
