Monique Samuels and her husband Chris Samuels are clearing up some rumors regarding their marriage.
The former the “Real Housewives of Potomac” star admitted that her marriage with her husband, Chris was “struggling in some areas” but they are most definitely not getting a divorce.
“It’s no secret that Chris and I have been struggling in some areas of our marriage and anybody who watched ‘Love & Marriage: DC’ last year, y’all saw the arguments, y’all saw everything that was going on,” the former “Housewife” began as she took to YouTube on Monday to address the rumors.
“It was a lot of confusion, it was crazy building up to that 10-year marker of our marriage and when you’ve been married that long and when you have things that you’re like ‘Listen, this is being unmet or I’ve been unheard’ you start to get frustrated and it’s like ‘Oh my god, is this what life is going to be? I can’t take it anymore.’ So what y’all saw on ‘Love & Marriage: DC’ last season, it was my cry for help.”
The 39-year-old described that she often felt like the former NFL player wasn’t listening to her when she told him about her needs or certain things she had issues with. She further added that she has always been “100 percent” real to the point where she’s putting herself out there knowing “I’m going to be judged.”
“Without further explanation, everyone knows that when you say the words separation, that insinuates a divorce. Are Chris and I getting a divorce? No! We aren’t getting a divorce. Are we going our separate ways? Absolutely not, nobody said that. Have we filed a legal separation? No. Have we filed for divorce? No. Is there any document that proves any divorce filings? No. Have we separated to the extent of breaking up? No.”
Chris, who had remained quiet for most of the statement, added that they found the rumors funny and were unfazed by them. However, he noted, that “it’s very disappointing and it’s a shame that people would put stuff out without fact-checking.”
Monique and Chris’ YouTube statement comes just one day after multiple reports claimed the couple was going their separate ways after 10 years of marriage.
Following the reports, the couple seemingly addressed the rumors by flashing their wedding bands while in a video post on Instagram.
The couple share three children, sons Christopher, 9, and Chase, 3, and daughter Milani, 7.
