RHOP alum Monique Samuels and hubby Chris respond to split rumors
She may not be a « housewife » anymore, but Monique Samuels is still a wife.
The « Real Housewives of Potomac » alum and her husband, Chris, appeared to be hitting back at rumors they were splitting after 10 years of marriage by showing off their wedding rings in a video posted to Instagram.
Monique started her Instagram Story by saying she had just got back from an “all day hike” and then turned to Chris and asked, “Chris, what do you have to say about all this ? » apparently in response to headlines.
« Shop Mila Eve, » he joked in response, referring to Monique’s online store, making her laugh hysterically.
As Monique, 39, bursts out laughing, she shows off her wedding ring directly in front of the camera.
In a follow-up post, Monique teased that she and Chris would be addressing the rumors head-on themselves.
“No better source than the real source. You already know how I roll. I give my own d–n exclusives,” she wrote, before urging fans to tune in to her YouTube channel on Monday night.
Multiple reports on Sunday claimed that Bravolebrity and the former NFL player, 45, are going their separate ways after 10 years of marriage. The couple share three children, sons Christopher, 9, and Chase, 3, and daughter Milani, 7.
After leaving « RHOP, » Monique joined « Love & Marriage: DC, » which documented the couple’s ups and downs. The reality show OWN is returning for a second season, with Monique set to be on the show.
Although filming « Housewives » is no longer a part of Monique’s life, she credits the reality show with « saving » her marriage « in some ways. »
« Chris and I, before we started filming this show, we were in a really tough spot, » she told Entertainment Tonight in July. “We had lost all the meetings of our marriage. Once we started filming reality TV, it actually helped us because it forced us to date.
“So we were able to go out and rekindle that intimacy and get excited for each other. So I’m not going to lie, season 2 of ‘RHOP’ saved my marriage.
