The drama is heating up in Potomac – on and off the TV screen!
Rumor has it, Monique was spending a little too much time with her personal trainer if you get my drift. The two were reportedly spotted out and about together. This allegedly upset Monique’s husband, Chris Samuels, and caused a strain in their marriage.
“[Monique] ’s best friend started a rumor, OK? I had nothing to do with the rumor,” Charrisse revealed on an episode of HollywoodLife’s TVTalk EXCLUSIVELY on Aug. 17. The friend of Monique’s that Charrisse is referencing is GiGi.
“The best friend told everybody from production to corporate, to the cast, so who did I tell? And she knows that her friend was doing this but what she thought was I was going to come on the show and use that as an end,” she explained.
While Monique believes that Charrisse is the one who spread the rumors about her alleged affair and marital problems, the former RHOP star denies any involvement in creating and spreading the gossip.
However, she does own up to talking about the rumors.
“Monique is clear on that,” Charrisse explained as she once again denied starting the rumors about Monique. “She’s been on her live saying that her best friend of 20 years is the one that started that rumor, but I facilitated it.”
As for Monique’s husband Chris wanting to “yell” at Charrisse, she says, “First of all, I’m never going to get into an argument or anything with Chris. I don’t argue with men.”
Charrisse noted, “This is a show with a cast of ladies. Let the ladies do their thing. I personally think that it was inappropriate for him to even suggest that.”
Charrisse also confessed that she hasn’t tried to “clear her name” with the RHOP couple.
“I’m aware of the type of individual I’m dealing with, so no, I have not [tried to clear my name],” she continued. “I don’t think it would change anything because Monique, in my opinion, lies a lot so in order to justify it she believes the lies she is telling and then she gets on social media, and she blasts all this stuff just to make herself validated, and I don’t even respond to it. I live in my truth, so I don’t need to get on social media trashing her.”
