The Real Housewives Of Potomac is back in the media, after the season 2 trailer finally dropped last week!
We weren’t sad to hear that Katie Rost left the show, especially because it gave producers a reason to cast a new Potomac housewife, and cast they did!
Monique Samuels is clearly a woman fixated on status and money, however it’s unclear if her fortune is from her hard work, or entirely her husbands. She’s going head-to-head with my personal favorite Gizelle, so I’m not exactly sure if she’ll be the one to watch, or just a housewife that we love to hate!
Either way, she’ll be someone we can’t stop talking about, so recently The Daily Dish shared some more information about Monique; check it out below!
Monique is married to Washington Redskins player Chris Samuels; if her time on RHOP doesn’t work out, maybe she can join WAGS next! His stats seem pretty good and he’s been in the NFL for 10 years; it’s also important to note that Monique is his #1 fan! They were friends for years before actually dating, and met when they were both living in DC.
Like Lara and myself Monique is actually a born and bred Jersey girl! She grew up in Pleasantville (for those of you who don’t know, that’s near Atlantic City). Monique grew up with a loving, traditional family, and she still speaks to her parents every single day. She revealed that growing up, “We all just spoke our minds,” and she still does to this day!
We’ll see Monique dressed to the nines in lavish clothes and jewelry this season, but she wants everyone to know that she’s actually always been a tomboy, a trait she got from her father! He taught her all about tools and cars, and wouldn’t even let her drive until she knew how to change a tire. Monique insisted that she still uses these skills to this day, and we’ll also see some of her boyish side this season!
Currently Monique is completing her business degree from The University of Alabama, but she’s already running several businesses! Right now, “she manage Chris Samuels’ businesses, which include CRS Real Estate, Chris Samuels Enterprises, and the Chris Samuels Foundation.” Monique is a self-proclaimed, “boss” and also runs her own blog, “Not For Lazy Moms,” which focuses on natural remedies for adults and children.
Monique and Chris are very interested in real estate, and currently own four houses, yes four! They have a family home, a beach house, a country home, and another home in the DC area that they currently rent to Redskins players.
Monique LOVES to treat herself, and she actually visits the spa weekly. She gets an array of services ranging from waxing, facials, and massages. This busy mama is adamant on getting some alone time to relax, unwind, and keep herself beautiful!
Monique and Chris have two young children, and they are very big on family. Christopher aka Chris Jr. is four years old, and their daughter Milani is just a toddler. It’s not specified if they plan on expanding their family any further, but they have beautiful children who will hopefully appear often on RHOP!
We’ve still got a lot to learn about Monique, but in a group of such strong, successful women she will definitely need to hold her own!
The AATRH team can’t wait for RHOP season 2 to return in April, we’re thinking this will put the franchise on the map, and give us another guilty pleasure to tune into!
