Former Real Housewives of Potomac star, Monique Samuels is shutting down all of the rumors that have been circulating that she and her husband, Chris Samuels are getting a divorce.
Samuels went on her YouTube account to explain what was going on in their marriage. “It’s no secret that Chris and I have been struggling in some areas of our marriage and anybody who watched ‘Love and Marriage: DC’ last year, y’all saw the arguments, y’all saw everything that was going on,” she said.
She continued, “It was a lot of confusion, it was crazy building up to that 10-year marker of our marriage and when you’ve been married that long and when you have things that you’re like ‘Listen, this is being unmet or I’ve been unheard’ you start to get frustrated and it’s like ‘Oh my god, is this what life is going to be? I can’t take it anymore.’ So what y’all saw on ‘Love & Marriage: DC’ last season, it was my cry for help.”
Samuels also went on to say that she has always been upfront and transparent with her fans even knowing that she would be judged. “So we’ve done a great job at being transparent with everyone that’s either watched us on social media or on the show- on either show- the fact that people are praising a rumor of divorce or a possible dissolution of a marriage, that’s sad that people were praising that.”
The 39-year-old would go on to say, “It’s sad that people were excited about it and then you know, you have a lot of people who love and support our family who are devastated. Without further explanation, everyone knows that when you say the words separation, that insinuates a divorce. Are Chris and I getting a divorce? No! We aren’t getting a divorce. Are we going our separate ways? Absolutely not, nobody said that. Have we filed for divorce? No. Is there any document that proves any divorce filings? No. Have er separated to the extent of breaking up? No.”
Monique and Chris Samuels have decided to seek individual counseling to help them work on their personal issues and to focus on themselves.
