Monique Samuels Dishes On Her First RHOP Reunion: “I Had A Lot To Get Off My Chest”

Monique Samuels is opening up about her first Real Housewives of Potomac reunion, which the special taping came to its conclusion on Sunday, July 16. Samuels, who went head-to-head with co-star Gizelle Bryant during Part 1 of the reunion, is setting the record straight about some of the comments she made about Bryant.

After an entire season of what she perceived as Bryant claiming she was a gold-digger, Samuels struck back with her own zinger about the source of her nemesis' income—Bryant's pastor ex-husband.

"I would much rather be associated with my husband and his wealth," Samuels noted, "than ten percent of the tithes and offerings from church or whatever supports you."

Opening up about the eyebrow-raising comment, Samuels says: "All season long, she had so much to say about my finances. She's counting my houses and cars. I had to watch her all season draw this conclusion of me of this person that I'm not. That irritated me more than anything. So when Andy asked about hypocrisy, I said yes—she is such a hypocrite," she told E! News. "You're living off your ex-husband who is a pastor who gets his income from other things and the church. So if I have all my wealth because of my husband, you have all of yours because of ten percent of tithes and offers in the church."

In hindsight, Samuels explains, she has no regrets. "I probably shouldn't have been catty, but I meant every word. She needs to watch what she says about other people without getting to know them."

Samuels says she had a lot more to express during Part 2 of the reunion. "I had a lot to get off my chest. The first part of the reunion was just a glimpse, it was half of my chest."

In the end, Samuels says she's made peace with the current state of her relationship with Bryant. "It's resolved as far as I'm concerned," she teases. "She might be mad…"

As far as filming a potential new season goes? "The thought of it is exhausting," laughs Samuels. "But I really do enjoy it."
