Is Monique returning to RHOP?
Monique previously gave fans hope in an Instagram Live, when asked whether she will be returning to the show, “There are rumors about you being fired, are you allowed to talk about that? My understanding is that contracts have not been sent out yet. if you gone, I am gone”.
She reassured them that contracts for season 6 have been sent out: “Contracts have been sent out and the rumours are not true”.
It was only after the broadcast of the final episode which she announced that she will not be returning to the show.
In her 15 minute IG TV, she confessed that filming for a reality show was not all glitz and glam: “I would never do anything to jeopardise my family. It was a crazy ride. It’s not easy doing reality tv and to be quite honest, I’m over it”.
Was Monique fired from RHOP?
No, Monique was not fired from RHOP. She claims that she received the contract for season 6 but chose not to return because the show had “crossed the line”, the line being her family being affected.
Fellow cast member Giselle Bryant was allegedly going to spread the false rumour that Monique’s son with husband Chris was not his. According to the IG TV, Monique quit the show because she did not want her children seeing these accusations while growing up.
