If there’s one thing about Monique “I have four homes” Samuels, she’s that girl. The it-girl, even! When Mrs. Samuels came bustling across our television screens in 2017 on the second season of The Real Housewives of Potomac (RHOP), she made a splash. Samuels’ debut was riddled with wealth and fabulousness but was met with sheer envy from her castmates. Despite being one of the few housewives to have a husband and storyline, the mother of three departed after four seasons.

While we may no longer see her on the Bravo franchise, she’s leading the ensemble on OWN’s Love & Marriage: D.C. alongside other DMV-based couples. This hugely successful move only confirms what we already know and have said: Monique is that girl. Check out our list of eight times Monique proved she is a star in her own right, regardless of what anyone who may be green with envy would argue.
