Charrisse on Monique Samuels: I Thought We Were Genuine Friends
"Monique is very concerned about her reputation (but could care less about anyone else's)."
Charrisse Jackson Jordan: I’m over Karen calling security at the sight of not wanting to be bothered by something. Why on one hand would you intentionally invite Kyndall to be faced with Gizelle (being messy) and when confronted, wimp out and call security. If you’re going to be a bad Batch (in Karen’s voice) and do bold things, then you have to be willing to face the repercussion that come with being a bad batch! We never know what’s going to be up the sleeves of them darn green eyed bandits... But Karen had to know after telling Gizelle while thinking she and Sherman were still together that she invited his ex to the event (and we know her thirsty behind would jump at the invitation) that something could possibly go down. She thought it was going to be with Gizelle and Kyndall and not her. She thought she was going to sit back and marvel at the mess she created. Her plan backfired and she can’t take the heat so she runs and calls security. She should’ve asked me my opinion so that I could’ve enlightened her that Gizelle could care less about any of Sherman’s exes let alone Kyndall. I think Gizelle made that point perfectly clear when she started dating him in the first place.

CJJ: I was so fed up at this point with the whole insinuation that I chose Monique Samuels' event over Robyn’s. With the exception of a text invitation, I didn’t know anything about Robyn’s event. I had no idea of the hard work nor how much this event meant to her. Of course Gizelle and even Ashley had more insight on how much this event was a big deal to Robyn. As her very close friend of 15 years, I felt that I deserved more than a generic text invite. Honestly, I was in my feelings and immediately responded back that I was already committed. It would not have been such a big deal if I were committed to anything else outside of Monique. Gizelle inserted herself and made it a bigger deal than it was. I was hurt that I didn’t know the capacity of what Robyn was doing and beyond disappointed that I wasn’t there to support her. When she and Gizelle questioned my loyalty as a friend I felt it was necessary to make my exit before words came out of my mouth that I would later regret. I was really hurt that I was excluded from the onset. Robyn knows that I have organized conferences and various types of events. Yet, her go to is always Gizelle. I’m good with that. But don’t question my loyalty as a friend when I wasn’t given an opportunity to be one. At the end of the day, if she had given me a full disclosure of what she had been working on, I would’ve been there to support her without reservation.
BravoTV.com: Tell us about feeling that Monique might be using you – especially hearing Robyn and Gizelle say the same thing.
CJJ: When Monique and I became close I honestly felt like it was a genuine friendship. I considered her my little sister. We became close quickly. Robyn, Gizelle, and others would constantly tell me to be careful with Monique because they felt that the friendship wasn’t real and that she was only utilizing me for my contacts and connections. I am a connector. I am that girl that loves helping others get acclimated and doesn’t mind sharing anything that I have including my friends. Monique wants to convince people that I have an issue with her becoming friends with Kyndall. That’s not only childish but it's not even in the spectrum of my issues with Monique. Quite frankly, she and Kyndall are similar and make great friends. Neither of them cares about how their actions affect other people and focus selfishly on themselves. Monique and Kyndall were more obsessed with trying to get at Gizelle which neither of them are capable of. Monique is very concerned about her reputation (but could careless about anyone else) but has no problem trying to bring down the reputation of others. The mere fact that she is trying to turn this into a friendship issue……My suggestion to Mrs. Samuels would be for her to learn how to be a real friend first.
BravoTV.com: What do you think about that awkward confrontation at the CBC?
CJJ: I’m glad I was more focused on trying to figure out if #5 was my actual EveryHue! All I heard was LIAR!!!!
