She’s bumping! The Real Housewives of Potomac ladies definitely showed up and showed out at the Season 3 reunion, but Monique Samuels definitely had that pregnancy glow. The pregnant reality star flaunted her growing baby bump during part one of the RHOP reunion, and fans were loving her glam maternity style.
“Congratulations to you and your family, your baby bump is super cute,” one fan wrote on her Instagram post, and another commented, “So excited to see [the] baby bump on TV!”

While fans flooded her comments section with well-wishes, Monique revealed one unfortunate detail during the reunion — Karen Huger and Candiace Dillard were the only ones out of her co-stars that congratulated her on her pregnancy and that’s because she is still at odds with Gizelle Bryant, Robyn Dixon, and Ashley Darby. Things are still tense between Monique and Ashley, and the ladies got into it on stage over a rumor that Ashley allegedly started earlier in the season.
Monique previously revealed that she and her husband Chris Samuels had suffered a miscarriage before the conceived baby No. 3 — the couple is already parents to five-year-old son Christopher and three-year-old daughter Milani. Shortly after Monique revealed that heartbreaking detail, she got into a scary car accident after she said she fell asleep at the wheel while driving home from a lunch date with Ashley.
But Ashley mentioned that Monique had about four drinks during lunch, and Monique felt that Ashley was insinuating that she had a drinking problem, or that she was an alcoholic — and Monique got a lot of backlash from fans because of it.
“They were saying, ‘Oh you’re an alcoholic, that’s why you had a miscarriage,'” Monique told reunion host Andy Cohen. “They were really cruel things to say.”
But thankfully, Monique is fine and it seems like she is in great health during this pregnancy. We can’t wait to see more baby bump updates as Monique gets closer to her due date!
