The intended premise of reality TV reunion shows is to bring the ladies together to hash out their differences and make peace. However, that is something that rarely happens. Instead, they revive old drama and call each other out for the shade thrown during on-camera interviews.
Yes, sometimes the cast members find closure, but that’s not always the case. Real Housewives of Potomac cast member Monique Samuels teases that she is not one of the Housewives who walked away with closure after filming the reunion.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Monique shared, “You’re gonna see some closure, but then you’re not going to see closure in other places.” More specifically, she said, “I, myself, walked away and I did not feel that I had closure with all of the women. I honestly didn’t, and I’m disappointed. So, yeah, if I had to sum up the reunion in one word, it would be disappointed.”
Monique admitted, “I was hoping I could walk away and have some reason or something that I felt would make me feel better about how the women treated me.” Which women is she referring to? Everyone on the other reunion couch, of course; i.e. Gizelle Bryant, Ashley Darby, and Robyn Dixon.
She confirmed, “I wanted closure with Robyn, with Ashley, and with Gizelle, because those were the three I had the most tension with all season.” She added, “Even Charrisse [Jackson-Jordan], you know? I know she’s not a full-time Housewife, but she was there at every moment and she was very much a part of the drama, so I was hoping to get closure with these women, but some of them hold truth to their lies, rather than holding truth to the truth.” What does that last part even mean? Obviously, she thinks they’re lying, but the wording is just awkward. At the very least it sounds like she will have some drama going into Season 4 aside from
talking about how “busy” she is promoting her business ventures.
