After the reunion aired, Monique sat down for an exclusive interview with All About The Tea. The reality star spoke to the outlet for over two hours and didn’t hold back her feelings about leaving the show, her belief that Bravo set her up, and Candiace Dillard.
At one point, Monique starts talking about how production reportedly did her dirty.
One of the hosts asked Monique, “So Monique, I heard about an incident before the reunion filmed regarding a mix up of hotels. You and your team were booked in different hotels than your costars.
She said, “I had to document that moment while I was feeling the outrage. We are arriving in New Jersey. Me and my glam team spent hours in the car with my parrot and my husband and my hairstylist and my makeup artist. And when we got to the hotel, not that it was a bad hotel, it just like the usual hotel Bravo would have us stay at.”
She said she thought, “This is interesting. We go up to our room. Kinda smelled a little bit.” Monique said she was talking to Chris about feeling like something was off. She starts to get ready and received a call from Karen Huger. Her costar asked her what room she was in to come see her.
After telling Karen the room number she received another call from her costar who said Monique gave her the wrong room number. They then discovered that Monique was in a totally different hotel than the rest of the cast.
Karen told Monique she was at the wrong hotel. Monique said she was told the reunion was being filmed at a totally different hotel, but the production booked her in the lesser hotel.
Monique said she then went and bought three rooms at the hotel where the other ladies were staying. She said without Karen telling her she would have never known and would have been late to the filming.
She said, “Thank god we found out that night and we were able to sit down and have a glass of wine and regroup. We would have been thrown off our game, mentally, emotionally, and physically had that happened the same day.” She doesn’t know what it was about but called it “jacked up.”
As The Blast previously reported, “RHOP” fans have been giving Andy Cohen heat for how he treated Monique during the reunion taping. Many believed he was too harsh on her and allowed other cast members to slide on things. One particular moment that stood out was when Andy told Monique the song she released wasn’t that good.
One fan asked the Bravo exec, “My question is … Why were you so Blatantly Disrespectful to Monique & her husband? I need answers.”
