Monique Samuels from "Real Housewives of Potomac" stars in the Bravo reality docu-drama. She joined the series in Season 2.

Monique Samuels is not afraid to shake things up with her "tell it like it is" style. She grew up a tomboy in Pleasantville, New Jersey, surrounded by her loving family. Her father instilled a sense of strength and independence into her. When she was a teen, he would not let her drive a car until she knew how to change a tire and check under the hood. Her close-knit family has helped her remain the down-to-earth Jersey girl that she is today.

Monique was the salutatorian of her high school graduating class. After graduation, she moved to Pittsburgh to attend Duquesne University on a full academic scholarship. After a few semesters, she decided to pursue her true passion, a career in music. She packed her bags and moved to Washington, D.C. where she met her future husband, Chris Samuels, a six-time Pro Bowl left tackle who played for the Washington Redskins. Chris and Monique's friendship has blossomed into a marriage of five years and their beautiful four-year-old son, Christopher, and one-year-old daughter, Milani.

Monique is a boss in every sense of the word, as she manages her husband's businesses, which include a real estate investment company, a business enterprise, and the Chris Samuels Foundation. As if that weren't enough to keep her busy, she is currently completing her business degree from the University of Alabama and working on her blog, "Not for Lazy Moms," which discusses holistic and natural remedies for adults and kids. When she has time to relax at one of the couple's five homes, she enjoys weekly spa treatments and international jet-setting travel with her family.
