Former The Real Housewives of Potomac star Monique Samuels quit the show following the season 5 reunion, alleging due to editing and vowed to never return to the show again. With the recent report that she turned down the network’s offer for her to appear on the second installment of Housewives All-Stars, it’s clear Samuels is done.
Screen Rant reports that Samuels was offered a chance to appear on the special alongside other Housewives favorites, including former RHOA stars Phaedra Parks and Eva Marcille. Samuels revealed the tea on her YouTube channel during an episode of her podcast featuring her former co-star Ashley Darby. She cites ongoing issues with the network as a result.
Since leaving the show, Samuels has been vocal about not wanting to return to the franchise, citing how she was treated during her time on the show.
The Not For Lazy Moms podcast host says her co-stars tried bringing a rumor to the show that she had an affair on her husband that resulted in an outside baby. Though the cast denied such, Candiace Dillard Bassett talked about it in an Instagram live.
The tip of the iceberg came amid her physical altercation with Dillard.
“I would have to fight so hard behind the scenes all the time just to use my platform,” she told Tami Roman on Roman’s FOX SOUL show, Get Into It.
