Monique Samuels is a humanitarian and entrepreneur while Chris is a retired NFL player who played for the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles, with both of them also being reality TV personalities. They met in 2009, tied the knot in 2012 and throughout the years they also welcomed three children into the word. Now, due to a number of reasons, Monique and Chris have announced their divorce through their respective social media accounts. As both of them are well-known reality TV stars, it’s no surprise that the couple’s divorce is making headlines and has rapidly become a hot topic of conversation.
Why are Chris and Monique Samuels getting a divorce?
Monique and Chris’ marriage has been a source of drama on both ‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ and ‘Love & Marriage: DC.’ The couple has often clashed on the shows, and their relationship has been put to the test on multiple occasions. The two claimed to have always been public about their marriage issues, both on and off-screen. In the end, they decided to end their marriage and file for divorce. Both of them have not really publicly disclosed the reasons for their divorce but there is solid basis for speculation, as both of them have mentioned the problems they had been facing in their time on TV. Aside from this, there have been some reports that the couple had been struggling in their marriage for some time and it is very possible that the couple’s divorce was caused by a number of factors, including financial problems, infidelity, or simply a lack of communication. Ultimately, only Monique and Chris know the true reasons for their divorce.
Did the controversies they faced on the shows play a role in the divorce?
After a tumultuous few years, Monique’s divorce filing from Chris Samuels is no surprise. In 2020, she was fired from “Real Housewives of Potomac” after getting into a physical altercation with co-star Candiace Dillard Bassett. She then joined the cast of “Love & Marriage: DC,” but she has also faced criticism for her behavior on that show. Chris’s behavior has also been the cause of various controversy among the show’s viewers. It’s difficult to say what role these controversies played in the couple’s decision to divorce but it seems as if they impacted Chris and Monique’s life severely. However, it’s clear that they have been through a lot in recent years, and it’s possible that these experiences contributed to the breakdown of their marriage.
The divorce filing is indeed a sad end to a once-happy marriage. However, it is clear that Monique and Chris are both moving on with their lives. Monique has been focusing on her business, ‘Not For Lazy Moms’, and Chris has been working on his own personal development. “I’m working on myself. I’m going to therapy. I’m reading books,” shared the former NFL player in a recent interview, “I’m trying to be a better person. I’m trying to communicate better. I’m trying to control my temper. I’m trying to be a better husband, a better father, and a better man.”
