Real Housewives of Potomac star Charrisse Jackson-Jordan has revealed in an interview with HollywoodLife more details on the rumors about Monique Samuels’ marriage. Monique, 36, has been married to Chris Samuels, 43, since 2012, and the rumors were about her son Chase not being Chris’ child.
So who spread this rumor about Monique having an affair with her trainer? Charrisse Jackson-Jordan wanted to make it clear that she had nothing to do with the drama.
“[Monique]’s best friend started a rumor, OK? I had nothing to do with the rumor.”
Charrisse was talking about GiGi – Gizelle Bryant. “The best friend told everybody from production, to corporate, to the cast, so who did I tell? And she knows that her friend was doing this but what she thought was I was going to come on the show and use that as an end,” she added.
In a recent Instagram Live, Monique sat with Chris and explained how Karen Huger called her and said, “I can’t believe Gizelle.” However, Charrisse complained that Monique led everyone to believe that she also had a hand in all of this drama.
“She’s been on her live saying that her best friend of 20 years is the one that started that rumor but I facilitated it.”
How will the rest of the season continue with the relationship between Monique and Candiace, who at some point she told Monique about this rumor, insisting she wasn’t involved?
Monique’s husband Chris had a few words for Charrisse, saying he felt like yelling at her. Charrisse then replied: “First of all, I’m never going to get into an argument or anything with Chris. I don’t argue with men,” she said, adding that “this is a show with a cast of ladies. Let the ladies do their thing. I personally think that it was inappropriate for him to even suggest that.”
Charrisse noted that “Monique, in my opinion, lies a lot so in order to justify it she believes the lies she is telling and then she gets on social media and she blasts all this stuff just to make herself validated and I don’t even respond to it,” She concluded that she lives “in my truth so I don’t need to get on social media trashing her.”
