On this week’s episode of Real Housewives Of Potomac, lines drawn in the sand became lines drawn in cement during the ladies trip to Bethany Beach. Katie Rost is tired of being pinched by nasty comments coming from Gizelle Bryant‘s claws!
Katie’s issues with Gizelle started in Potomac. Even though “it’s pretty obvious Gizelle doesn’t like me,” Katie still solicited Gizelle, along with Robyn Dixon and Ashley Darby, to help co-host her last-minute fundraiser. Katie’s motives were to “expand my group of contacts and friends.” Unfortunately Gizelle and Robyn didn’t have the overjoyed and gracious reaction Katie expected.
Instead, Katie was “annoyed and frustrated” by Gizelle and Robyn’s very realistic questions about the particulars about her plans (of which there were none!). Despite how it came across, Katie maintains, she “honestly wasn’t upset” by their negative comments.

No, Katie wasn’t upset – she was just acting like a petulant child because, like, that’s what Katie does! Katie explains that, “in general,” she would never ask Robyn and Gizelle to help her with anything because “they tend to find fault and point out negatives and I just go for it because I know I can always make it work.” Subtext: Katie just badgers, nags, and obfuscates until a person is worn down into submission, but I agree Gizelle is a whiny, negative, constantly-complaining brat who is wearing on my last nerve.
Katie continues, “It’s pretty obvious Gizelle doesn’t like me and isn’t likely to help me with anything. Robyn I think would help, but she has a lot going on financially and working for free under a crunch situation probably wasn’t on her radar.”
Tensions escalated during the ladies road trip to Bethany Beach. After Gizelle read aloud Katie’s ‘break-up blogs’ about Russell Simmons, an exhausted Katie needed a break. “It wasn’t so much about the blog being Googled,” says Katie. “I pulled over because I was sick of driving and sick of being picked on.”
“I really wanted a cocktail and some crabs and new energy – some male energy,” Katie complains.
Once they actually got to Bethany Beach, Katie’s patience for Gizelle’s attitude completely evaporated during Charrisse Jackson -Jordan‘s “sister circle” sharing. Note: I really appreciated Charrisse on this episode – she let her guard down and stepped out of the pretentious shadow of Karen Huger, however it seems next week she’ll be disappointing me again!
Katie was unsurprised and unbothered to receive Gizelle’s back-handed compliments about her intelligence. “Gizelle always has a nasty undertone to what she says,” writes Katie in her blog. “She isn’t someone who stimulates me with provocative banter, it just strikes me as silly.”
Instead, Katie praises Gizelle’s negativity as inspirational. “I couldn’t honestly care less about anything that comes out of her mouth. I love her for who and what she is, which for me is a person who challenges me to stay peaceful in the face of racism, ignorance and pointless troublemaking.”
Katie concludes by saying Gizelle “is very pretty to look at and she makes me laugh on occasion, other than that we have nothing to connect over.”
Well, except for their mutual dislike, that is!
TELL US – IS GIZELLE BEING HATEFUL AND NEGATIVE TOWARDS KATIE? WAS KATIE RIGHT TO BE “ANNOYED AND FRUSTRATED” BY GIZELLE AND ROBYN’S QUESTIONING OVER HER FUNDRAISER?
