Monica Patel and boyfriend Imad Khalil have an almighty row on Married to Medicine Houston this week — about religion.

To make things worse, the couple have it out in front of other guests at a Shabbat dinner hosted by socialite Cindi Rose.

The argument centers around Monica saying she’s a “free-spirited liberal-thinking person”, with Imad disagreeing. He says: “I can’t believe you’re saying that. You’re not. You’re far from that.”

He then says to the other guests: “Ask her, if we have a kid, what way it is going to be raised?”

The argument steps up a gear as he then accuses her of wanting to raise her kids religiously because of pressure from her parents.

Talking about a potential child, she says: “I’m spiritual so I want to raise it my way.”

But he tells the others: “To me it’s not a big deal, and to her I know it’s not a big deal, but who is it a big deal to? Our parents. Her parents are old school. They force her to be in a certain way.”

She looks like she is about to explode at this point, and says: “My parents don’t force me to be any way. I am who I am. Are you trying to fight with me? I don’t know what’s wrong.”

She then says in a confessional with producers: “He knows I want to raise our children Hindu, and he was ok with it before.”

And she slams him for bringing it up in public, saying: “We need to talk about religion, but we need to do it by ourselves in private, not at this formal Shabbat dinner in front of a whole bunch of people.”

Back at the table she tells him: “Come on, stop it. Just stop it. I did not bring this s**t up right now, just stop it.”

Married to Medicine Houston co-star Erika Sato, who has been watching silently from across the table, tells producers: “They need to have a conversation behind closed doors so things like this don’t happen in front of other people.”

Also on this week’s Married to Medicine Houston, Rachel Suliburk — who denied Cindi’s invitation to dinner — hosts her own night with  Ashandra Batiste and Elly Poursaf, who is still fuming about the things Monica has had to say about her.

Meanwhile, Rachel’s live-in-mother Maribel Henderson has a potential suitor after trying out online dating.

Married to Medicine Houston airs Fridays at 9/8c on Bravo.
