Interview with RHOPotomac’s Mrs Monique Samuels 📺❤️💋

60CC1ECA-2C24-46A5-A5AF-101B2B6F312A

The fabulous Mrs Monique Samuels has already made an impact over in the US after joining Season 2 of The Real Housewives of Potomac and was voted New Girl in the Real Housewives Awards as above. If you watched last nights Episode 2 on ITVBe the UK got to meet this great addition who caught Gizelle’s shade and dazzled us all with a little rap 🎧🎼

I got a great opportunity to ask Monique a few questions so us TV Addicts can get to know her some more:

Had you seen any of the Real Housewives prior to joining?
Yes I’ve been a Housewives franchise fan since the very beginning! I started out watching RHOC and RHOA. I keep up with all of the franchises! 
What attracted you to join the Housewives?
At first I was hesitant to join the show but my husband encouraged me to do it. He said he loves how I always put myself second to everyone and everything, so this was the time for me to do something for me. I enjoy being around boss women and can typically fit in to any circle! 
How did your thoughts on the other Ladies change from beginning to end of the Season?
I love being around strong women so my thoughts pretty much remained the same. We all have strong personalities and I enjoyed getting to know each woman in this circle. I’m accustomed to meeting woman from all backgrounds. 
What do you want everyone to know about you?
I’m a hardworking woman who loves to laugh and make others smile. I try to see the positives in every situation. I keep i‎t real to a fault. My family comes before everything. I always aim to please but I won’t change the core of me to fit into any group. 
Now that Season 2 is finished do you have any regrets or take anything away from filming the Season? & are you signed on for the currently filming Season 3?
I have no regrets. I appreciate every lesson. That’s what helps me to grow and to continue to develop into a better me. I’m looking forward to showing more of who I am as a person, and what I actually do when it comes to business and charitable work. You’ll see a lot more of that in season 3! 

Can’t wait for you all to see more of this great season on ITVBe Sundays at 9pm. Can’t thank Monique enough for taking time out of her busy boss schedule to answer a few questions for me 🙏🏻👏🏻

ITVBe delivers for Reality TV Fans 📺❤️💋

 

These days there is all kinds of platforms to watch our favourite shows, Sky/Virgin with their varying packages, monthly subscription services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hayu and then there is Freeview.

Now not everyone has a paid monthly package/subscription so this post is to say hats off to ITVBe for helping Reality TV fans watch their favourite shows without having to wait what seems like forever 😟

Who are ITVBe? Well they are owned by ITV Digital Channels Ltd which is a division of ITV Plc. The channel launched on 8th October 2014 as a Entertainment, Lifestyle and Reality TV Channel. Whilst we have UK Reality shows, Dinner Date and Real Housewives of Cheshire a big draw for me is the US Reality Shows.

For November they are not disappointing. If you watch the channel you will have meet this fantastic family. The Chrisley’s are back. Todd, Julie, Nanny Faye and kids are starting back with S4 on Wednesday 8th November at 10pm Chrisley Knows Best. They get up to allsorts of shenanigans and have to say Nanny Faye is a firm favourite. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

Then S2 Real Housewives of Potomac Sunday 12th November at 9pm. This is great news as it only finished airing in US July this year so we haven’t had to wait too long. Whilst S1 seemed to get mixed reviews from my fellow Reality TV addicts I have watched S2 (on Hayu sorry not sorry I couldn’t wait!) I really enjoyed watching the etiquette talk is not as much as S1 and the addition of new Housewife, Monique Samuels is definitely a good one.

Now this next show I really do take my hat 🎩 off to ITVBe. Just finished airing on Bravo at the end of August S9 Real Housewives of New York comes to ITVBe on Tuesday 14th November at 5pm. This will be on weekdays at 5pm so should keep me busy over the coming weeks 😊 I’m very excited by how quick this is airing especially as past history both on ITVBe and ITV2 before this channel launched was always at least a year after US finished the season 😊

Rumour has it the Real Housewives of Orange County 🍊 that is currently airing in the US will air on the channel in January 2018 so fingers crossed🤞🏻 this new tradition of a few months later as opposed to a year continues 😍

Lastly a completely new show Tamara’s World will start on Wednesday 15th November at 9pm. Initially I was confused 🤷‍♀️ as to whether this was a new show or not. Mainly as I recall watching a show on Tamara Ecclestone on Channel 5 last year. So I have confirmed with Viewer Services this is definitely a new show as the Ch5 show was called Billion $$$ Girl.

I know not everyone is a fan of Reality TV 📺 but I do like to have a mix of easy breezy viewing in my life and all of these can suck you into the drama of their lives and friendships 😍

Let me know if you’re going to be watching 📺 Happy Viewing 📺❤️💋

Universal Channel are then bringing the final season of Major Crimes. I’m hoping this successful show will go out with a bang 💥but I am sad 😔 it’s going to be the last. Monday 13th November 9pm

Another 1 back for it’s final season is Scandal on Sky Living also 15th at 10pm will be interesting to see how it’s all wrapped up 🤔

Finally for November back to Universal Channel for S2 Chicago Med. Now I will be honest I was unsure at 1st on this 1 having been such a huge fan of Fire 🔥 & PD 👮👮🏻‍♀️ however I truly loved by end of S1 😍 Dr Charles is my fave 😍

New Season of Love & Hip Hop NY? Bring It 📺❤️💋

So todays the day VH1 in US bring Season 8 of the NY franchise, Love and Hip Hop. If like me you are UK-based and have the amazing Reality TV app, Hayu, you will have been able to binge watch the 7 previous season.

Hayu added the previous 7 earlier in the year and I have binge watched a season here and there, in between everything else I watch. In the last week knowing that a new season was coming I’ve watched 6 & 7 and have my fingers crossed 🤞🏻 that Hayu will have S8 tomorrow (please Hayu I truly hope you do 🤞🏻👍🏻🙏🏻)

If you are a follower of my blog you will know I’ve posted about #LHH before, see https://wp.me/p90g6e-4H it’s definitely a drama filled show, which let’s be honest is 1 of the reasons we watch Reality TV, I know I do. Rather their life than mine right? 😜

So if you haven’t seen Love & Hip Hop you need to get on it 😍📺❤️💋 www.hayu.com check out a clip of Cardi B here     Cardi B has no chill
