Monique Samuels Addresses Rumors That She’s Leaving RHOP Following Her Explosive Fight With Candiace Dillard Bassett; Says “I Can Confirm That I Am Here To Stay Unless Bravo Asks Me To Leave”

Monique Samuels is addressing rumors that she is quitting The Real Housewives of Potomac due to her ongoing feud with her co-stars following her explosive physical altercation with Candiace Dillard Bassett.

Rumors sparked about Samuels' future on the show after she was seen in the Season 5 trailer tearfully telling the other women, "Then maybe I don't need to be a part of this anymore."

"I'm not going anywhere," Monique told Distractify. "I can confirm that I am here to stay unless Bravo asks me to leave, which they haven't, so I'm here."

Monique revealed that her eventual departure is only completely dependent on her family, not her feuds with co-stars.

"I just kind of take it season by season," Monique says. "If I have the green light to move forward, and if me and my family are still comfortable and we feel like we want to keep sharing our story as a family unit."

She noted that she and her husband sit down every year to discuss her time on the show, and if they ever feel it's too much for them or for their children, then her time on RHOP will have reached its end.

"Our family comes first," she said.

As her relationship with Candiace following their dramatic fight? "Right now the relationship is nonexistent," she told Distractify. "I do not talk to her. Yes, it was a terrible situation, but it also helped me to grow as a person, recognizing what my attributes are and just ensuring something like that will never happen again."

Monique is also curious about how their fight will play out on the show. "I'm just anxious to see what the viewers think once they actually see how everything unfolds," she says. "I pretty much stayed silent the entire time. I didn't want to give away too much information, because at the end of the day, we were filming. There's like a fine line between reality and doing my job. And me doing my job was not to speak on it."

Monique says she's on good terms with Ashley Darby and Karen Huger, and while Gizelle Braynt has made some public comments about Monique, she shared that there's no direct feud between them at this time she did the interview, which was earlier this month.

"Gizelle likes to insert herself into any situation that is against me," she added. "There was no beef with her, she just likes to insert herself, so that's what she wanted to do. She made that choice."
