Monique Samuels has a new single out called “Drag Queens” and  it’s about her taking her power back despite what others have claimed. 

“The reason why I wrote the song “Drag Queens” is because I had a very rough season as people can see from the trailer, lack of stress, a lot to take in and I wanted to turn this negative into a positive and just kind of remind myself of who I am as a person,” she said. 

Once ‘Drag Queens” hit streaming platforms, some people said her song was dedicated to a specific person, but Samuels said it is just the opposite.

“At the end of the day, the real message is about just uplifting yourself and it’s an anthem…the whole message in itself is something that people can relate to,” Samuels added.

Samuels isn’t the first person to dabble in the music industry pond. She said she is open to making music with Real Housewives of Atlanta reality stars NeNe Leaks, Porsha Williams, and Kandi.

“I would love to! I’m always down for a good collaboration,” she admitted. 

She also said the song got its name after fans gave her the nickname “Drag Queen” from her incident with Candice Dillard Bassett in season four. 

“A lot of people kept calling me the ‘Drag Queen’ or the ‘Queen of Drag’ after that whole moment when I was pregnant…it’s literally talking about myself and what I stand and don’t stand for,” Samuels said.“The chorus in itself, I came to work, I came to slay, that’s my mindset when I am filming and even when I’m just leaving the house in general,” she continued.

Alongside her new hit single, Samuels’s new potty training book will be available for purchase on Aug.10. Fans of her might have seen this coming because of her brand “Not for Lazy Moms”. She said her new book,” Potty Training Mommy and Daddy: A Guide for Introducing Infant Potty as Early as 6 Months Old“ will teach parents an effective and easy way to potty train. She said one of her friends used the potty training method from the book and now their three-year-old daughter is able to use the bathroom on their own.

Available for Pre-order on Kindle today! Finally, a guide that will potty train Mommy and Daddy! Paperback and Hardcover coming soon on @notforlazymoms Potty training doesn’t have to be a nightmare. When parents often beg the question, “How and when do I potty train this little human?” The answer really isn’t that complicated. This step-by-step guide focuses on tips and tricks for Mommy and Daddy to start potty training at a very early age by introducing the potty as soon as your baby can sit up on their own. Sounds crazy? But it works. Most children spend the first two years of their lives being told that it’s okay to mess themselves. After much time has passed, we then tell them, “Oh no! Don’t pee and poo on yourself. Do it on the potty! Where would you get such an idea that messing yourself is okay?” We create this terrible habit and then expect them to – all of a sudden – turn it off like a light switch when we feel they’re getting too big for diapers. Real Housewife of Potomac and @notforlazymoms creator Monique Samuels breaks it down into 10 easy-to-understand steps that can be accomplished by real moms and dads with busy lives. This guide is also applicable to children who have started walking, and tells you what approach to take when you start your potty training journey with a toddler versus a baby. Often times, we are the roadblock between the diaper and the potty.

“She was able to take her out with her little kiddy underwear and she did good and was fine after that,” she said proudly. 

While she’s not in a recording studio, teaching potty training tips, or creating content for “Not for Lazy Moms”, she’s filming the Real Housewives of Potomac. Fans around the country are wondering what happened to cause a fight between her and Bassett. Samuels said after the incident, she doesn’t see herself or Bassett becoming friends again. 

“I will move forward on my own, but that journey will not include her. Like I said, when someone shows you who they are, believe them and I should’ve believed her the first time,” Samuels said. “Anytime somebody wants to see me behind bars or try to throw out the fact that they would want to pursue civil action, which means they want my money, absolutely not, that will never be a friend again,” she said. 

“Drag Queens” can be found on all music streaming platforms and her potty training book can be purchased on Amazon.
