Monique Samuels had high hopes that The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion would bring her some closure and answers to some of the drama that arose during the season, but it sounds like that didn't exactly happen.
And that was, of course, not the outcome she wanted. She had imagined a more positive scenario.
“I was hoping I could walk away and have some reason or something that I felt would make me feel better about how the women treated me,” she said. “I didn’t. I walked away and I still had questions, and things that weren’t answered. That’s just me, personally. Some of the other women did walk away and felt better and had closure, and myself? No. Did not. You’ll see, it was pretty heated.”
She wanted to try and settle some issues with a few Potomac ladies in particular.
“I wanted closure with Robyn [Dixon], with Ashley [Darby] and with Gizelle [Bryant], because those were the three I had the most tension with all season,” she explained. “Even Charrisse [Jackson-Jordan], you know? I know she’s not a full-time Housewife, but she was there at every moment and she was very much a part of the drama, so I was hoping to get closure with these women, but some of them hold truth to their lies, rather than holding truth to the truth."
Of the four ladies, one has been the hardest to interact with, according to Monique: "Talking to [Gizelle] is like talking to a brick wall. I don’t have time to fight with you ... if we can walk away being cordial as we’ve been, then that’s the goal, and mission accomplished.”
When the husbands joined the stage in Part 2 of the reunion, airing this Sunday, August 19, at 8/7c, Monique revealed they did luckily answer some burning questions: "There’s a lot of revelations ... it’s very refreshing when you can see the husbands come and clarify things that were such big question marks throughout the season."
