"The dynamic of the group was amazing in the beginning, and it’s going to be fun to watch all of us as we bond and have fun and laugh and joke, and have our little fun shady moments,” Monique continued. “The whole season is definitely one that is going to be a roller coaster, a lot of ups and downs.”

According to Monique, she and her cast mates definitely go through some hard moments but they also “bring it all back together.”

“I actually hit it off with Wendy, we have a lot in common,” Monique said of the newbie. “Right from the beginning, it’s not hard for me to bond with women, so she’s really fun, she has a great head on her shoulders, she’s really confident, she’s very opinionated and all of those qualities make for an excellent housewife. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the inside of her life, with her and her family and that whole dynamic. She’s a mother of three, just like myself, so we had a lot in common. She’s definitely fierce and she speaks her mind so I think that the viewers will definitely enjoy having Wendy on the show this year.”

Speaking about the way in which Wendy fit in with her cast mates, Monique said the newbie "blends well."

"What I love about her is that she’s an actual housewife. So, she’s married, which is always nice. As it compares to other housewives, like I said before, she’s very aware of herself, she’s very opinionated, she’s not afraid to speak her mind, so that’s always a plus,” Monique revealed.

The singer then noted that fans would be seeing some people on season five that “used to be a part of the show."

Regarding claims that cast member Michael cheated on his wife, Ashley Darby, Monique admitted that her male co-star is "always the talk.”

“That’s going to be a whole ride, once again, but I’m sure they’re figuring everything out. The Darby’s have a way of just handling what they need to handle,” she added.

To see more of Monique and her co-stars, don't miss the season five premiere of "The Real Housewives of Potomac" on Sunday, August 2, at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
