Monique got into a car accident after she went to lunch with Ashley. Ashley told the whole cast that Monique had four martinis at lunch, she was drunk driving, and insinuated that she had a drinking problem on more than one occasion. Needless to say, the two of them are far from close these days.
Monique addressed the last RHOP episode in a Bravo blog post. Before getting to the Ashley drama, she discussed her relationship with Karen Huger. Monique revealed, “Karen and I have become very close. I appreciate her sincerity and I admire how strong she has been while dealing with the scrutiny she’s been receiving as a result of her husband’s business’ taxes.”
Monique didn’t pass up on the opportunity to throw shade at Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon, i.e. the “mean girls” according to Monique and Karen. She of all people can understand when the mean girls have nothing else better to do than to pick you a part. I really wanted her to know that I was sorry for blowing up at her event. That was not the time nor the place.”
And then she got to that sit down with Ashley. Monique admitted, “Now as I watch the early lunch sit down with Ashley, I realize that I let her off way too easy. However, at that point in my life, I no longer had the energy to fight. I just wanted to move forward, be happy and focus on what’s more important.”
Of course that’s not how she feels reliving the moment when she saw the episode. Monique said, “Watching her ‘apology’ now shows me just how fake she is. She didn’t mean a single word of it.”
Monique continued, “After seeing her interview bites, I would have rather Ashley say those exact words to me if she really meant it. She’s a self absorbed, dysfunctional child still dealing with abandonment issues. She’s so accustomed to dysfunction that she recreates it with her lies and almost pushes her friends further away from her, as if she’s already mentally prepared for their departure. She’s made plenty of mistakes and her biggest one is believing her own lies about herself and others.” Shots fired.
