BravoTV.com: Tell us about how you were feeling going into this sitdown with Monique Samuels.
Charrisse Jackson Jordan: Honestly, I came into the sit-down reluctantly. I had been feeling a sense of faux genuineness when it comes to Monique. She had betrayed my trust a couple of times at this point and I really felt that I wasn't going to get an honest response from her. The truth is, I wanted to get past what I was feeling and was hoping that she would be open and honest with me so that we could move on and repair the damage before it became worse.
BravoTV.com: Did you have any idea that she didn’t know why you were upset?
CJJ: Monique is a very smart woman. Don’t let that rough around the edges fool you. In fact, one of the things I admired the most about Monique is her vast intellect in various areas. I’ve also learned that she can be very calculating. She knows exactly what she is doing but portrays a sense of naiveness to camouflage her deceitful tactics. She knew exactly why I was upset but played on my emotional side to skirt through the issue. She played me!
BravoTV.com: What is it like watching her breakdown now and saying that you’re the only one she wouldn’t want to fight with and worried that you didn’t need her anymore?
CJJ: It looks believable. I fell for it. How could you not? She is a great actress that has missed her calling. However, the truth always comes to light. Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice….. NOPE! I won't be fooled again!
BravoTV.com: You got emotional as well — tell us about this moment.
CJJ: I am the Queen of Emotional! A trait that I wish I could erase. I was already on an emotional high, I had just buried one of my best friends the day before. I was still going through major transitions in my personal life paralleled with making a lot of bad decisions with business and friendships. My emotional levels were at an all-time high. To see her cry the way she was crying broke my heart. After all, she is someone that I consider a friend and she is someone that I truly cared about. When my friends hurt I hurt as well. who knew it was a lot of wasted emotions.
