Ep. 108

Gizelle Bryant steps Behind The Rope. The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 5 alive and well. We discuss it all!!!! Gizelle fills us in on how the season is going for her, her daughters and Pastor Bryant. Gizelle wastes no time in also discussing how she thinks her co-stars are handling this season as well - Robyn Dixon and her potential upcoming nuptials to Juan, Ashley’s motherhood, Wendy, welcome to the DMV. Michael Darby and his role as an honorary housewife. We also discuss her on again, off again friendship with The Grand Dame, Miss Karen Huger, and the status of that friendship today. Speaking of Karen Huger, we analyze the softer side we get to see this season via her marriage with Ray and discuss just why does Karen not like newbie Wendy. No discussion of Karen would be complete without a deep dive into the origin of The Grand Dame moniker, and the answer is not what you would expect, but hey, a shout out from Rihanna ain’t too bad. Of course we chat about the Candiace Monique Drama at the epicenter of this season, how the cast reacted to the physical altercation and how it has led to larger life discussions such as the portrayal of African American women on television. We also talk about why after 5 seasons Potomac is finally getting the respect it deserves. In other Bravo news, Gizelle chats about Dorinda's RHONY exit and what it was like to meet fellow Bravolebries such as Lala, Reza, Gigi and Brandi Redmond at BravoCon. Finally, seeing as David was at that infamous party in The Hamptons where Ramona asked Gizelle to leave the picture, they needed to bond over that and ask the age old question, will Gizelle ever squash her beef with Ramona? Thanks for stopping by Gizelle. Come anytime!
