Monique Samuels took to her Instagram page to blast People Magazine for running with a “fraudulent divorce narrative” and creating an article without consulting her or her husband to confirm if they were getting a divorce.
Monique captioned her IG post:
Thank you to everyone that joined our live show on Monday on my TEA WITH MONIQUE YouTube Channel! Your support is beyond appreciated ❤️❤️❤️
Shout out to the REAL journalists and the pages/platforms who corrected this fraudulent “Divorce” narrative.
Visit My Channel for the full video where I also address @ashleyboalchdarby.
Lastly, I also address the lies that came out of the wrinkled, saggy neck last lady during #bravocon.
People Magazine titled their article, “Monique Samuels and her husband Chris Samuels are going their separate ways.”
See Monique’s original IG post below:
Monique Samuels is an entrepreneur, a philanthropist, and a reality tv star who has appeared on “The Real Housewives of Potomac” and “Love & Marriage DC.”
Chris Samuels is a former NFL football player who was an offensive tackle for the Washington Redskins for 10 years (2000-2009).
As mentioned in the IG caption, Monique and Chris took to their YouTube Channel, “Tea With Monique” to set the record straight.
People Magazine ought to be ashamed of themselves.
They created an article without any confirmation, without any statement from the married couple, they had the audacity to reach out to my publicist and they said, ‘Hey can we get a statement.”
My publicist is like, ‘This isn’t true… No!’, and they said we’re going to run with the story anyway.
That’s what they said.
We’re going to run with the story anyway, right.
This is what you call unethical journalism, all right.
There’s supposed to be a credible source, and they said we’re going to run with the story anyway.
There’s no legal filing, there’s no divorce, nobody hired any attorneys, none of that, and they said we’re going to run with the story anyway, “Monique Samuels and Chris Samuels are going their separate ways.”
What does that sound like to y’all?…
Monique did admit that her and her husband have had some recent struggles in their marriage, and anyone that watched the first season of “Love & Marriage DC” saw some of those struggles play out on TV, and she said in season two they had planned to show them living separately and working on themselves individually to see if they could get back to the love that they use to share, but People Magazine didn’t allow them the chance to even start filming season two before they ran with their false narrative.
They also said they had not discussed their living arrangement and plans for season two with their extended families yet, and since People Magazine put out false information they have been receiving a lot of phone calls from family members.
