Reality TV star Monique Samuels heartbroken as she reveals her cousin was killed: ‘We live in an evil world’

Reality TV star Monique Samuels is heartbroken over the death of her cousin.

The former Real Housewives of Potomac star got emotional in an Instagram post, in which she revealed her cousin — whose name she did not reveal — was killed over the weekend. 

“This hurts so much 💔💔💔💔 Can barely sleep… unbelievable,” Samuels, 37, began in her lengthy post. “Please say a prayer for my fam 🙏🏽 My cousin was killed last night. One of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. He’s always smiling and takes care of everyone. He’s a great dad to his son and minds his business.”

Samuels — who left the Bravo franchise last year after being involved in a physical altercation with co-star Candiace Dillard, 34 — then thanked her followers for their support before issuing a parting shot at whoever killed her cousin.

“We live in an evil world where life is not valued anymore and it’s sad. Thank you all for the prayers. My cousins (his sis and bro) need them so badly right now. I don’t even know what to say 😩😭🙏🏽 Whoever did this- I hope you rot in the deepest, darkest pit in hell.”

While Samuels is at odds with most of her RHOP co-stars, she did receive support from one former castmate, Karen Huger. 

“Sending prayers your way,” Huger commented on Instagram.

Samuels has had a rough two years. Her departure on RHOP last year after four seasons was dramatic, and the fight that triggered her exit was all caught on camera.  

In the footage, which aired late last year, Samuels and co-star Dillard got into a heated exchange at a wine-tasting event with their co-stars before getting into a physical altercation that has since been dubbed possibly the worst in Real Housewives history.

“It was a crazy ride. It’s not easy doing reality TV, and to be quite honest, y’all, I’m over it,” Samuels said on Instagram Live when she announced her departure. “I appreciate everything that people have done for me. Everybody that’s been Team Monique, I love y’all, I thank y’all. But when you cross certain lines, there’s no going back.”

The TV star is now focusing on her husband, former NFL pro Chris Samuels, and their three children: Christopher Jr, seven, Milani, five, and Chase, two.
