Monique Samuels, of The Real Housewives of Potomac, has recently been opening up about a lot of things seen on the show. The RHOP star claims she doesn’t have a drinking problem, revealed she had a miscarriage before the first reunion of the show, and now she is opening up about family drama. Last season we saw that she had a tense relationship with her mother-in-law. (She called her a ‘heifer’ on TV.) Monique’s husband, Chris Samuels, saw how she was being treated on the show and as a result he stopped talking to her. However; the family is doing better now.
According to The Daily Dish, Monique said, “We’re good. We’re cordial. We’re okay. We actually had Christmas together. We all went down to Florida and rented a beach house and all of the family was there. My kids got to see everyone, so it was nice.” They are all making an effort, especially for the children. Monique’s two kids Christopher and Milani are her priority. Monique said, “I always made an effort to make sure that my kids get to see their Grans, especially for the holidays, because we travel a lot. Sometimes, we’re so busy, but I’ll say to Chris, ‘All right, let’s go. We’ve got to go down to Virginia Beach and go see your folks.’ I’m the one that’s always spearheading that relationship.”
Monique is adamant that her children still have a relationship with their grandparents, even if she isn’t on the best of terms with her mother-in-law. Monique summed it up, “But I’m always going to encourage a relationship between my kids and their Grans, because I think that’s an important relationship to have.” I firmly agree that relationships with our grandparents are sacred and special! I think it’s great that Monique has taken the high road and is making steps to repair that relationship. I think that’s what marriage and family life is all about – compromise and effort.
