Real Housewives Of Potomac Producers May Add Two New Cast Members For Season 6 After Monique Samuels Left The Show!

According to new sources, Bravo would be adding new cast members to The Real Housewives of Potomac's upcoming sixth season following Monique Samuels' exit from the series.

“They’re trying to add two new women to Potomac,” a source told The Jasmine Brand. “Potomac needs to fill Monique’s role on the show. Before Monique quit, production was anticipating following the aftermath of Monique and Candiace – will they reconcile? Will the cast remain divided? Now that she’s gone, they’ll need to explore new people.”

The outlet adds that producers are already beginning potential casting conversations.

The news comes after Monique Samuels announced she was leaving RHOP after Part 3 of the Season 5 reunion aired on Bravo. She shared the news with her followers via an Instagram live session.

“It was a crazy ride. It’s not easy doing reality TV, and to be quite honest, y’all, I’m over it,” she said during an Instagram Live on Sunday, December 27, according to Us Weekly. “I appreciate everything that people have done for me. Everybody that’s been Team Monique, I love y’all, I thank y’all.”

Monique explained that she decided to walk away from the Bravo hit reality series in an attempt to shield her family from drama.

“When you cross certain lines, there’s no going back. And for me, my family is that line,” she said. “The opinion of my family and my kids and what they think about anything that I do is more valuable to me than anybody’s opinion, so I’m over it.”

“I wanted to represent real Black love and show people something outside what the stereotype has been on TV. Unfortunately, this season I played right into that stereotype,” Monique said during her Instagram Live. “I was working overtime to really check myself because that’s the exact opposite of what I want to display on a TV show and in real life, most importantly. I’m always going to be a great example and role model for my kids, and you have to know when enough is enough. And enough is enough.”

Monique joined RHOP in 2017 during the show’s second season. The current cast consists of Ashley Darby, Candiace Dillard Bassett, Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Robyn Dixon, and Wendy Osefo.
