This season of The Real Housewives of Potomac is already FULL of drama. Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger are on a never-ending cycle of love and hate. They TRY to be friends, but something always gets in the way. Neither ever seems willing to be entirely up front and honest with the other. Overall, their friendship is a total mess.
On last week’s episode , the ladies went to New Orleans, and things quickly went south. Gizelle’s apology and reconnection tour seemed to end when she confronted Karen. It was confusing and unexpected watching the vibe shift over Gizelle’s hurt feelings regarding Karen. However, Candiace Dillard was there and she’s shedding insight on what really went down.
It’s no secret that Candiace is much closer to Karen than she is to Gizelle. Given that, it’s unsurprising that she is weighing in on the situation.
In a Bravo blog post, Candiace shared, “I can understand where Gizelle is coming from as a friend. But truth be told, Gizelle has not been the best friend to Karen and build that trust back takes time.”
Preach Candiace! It was so shady last season when Gizelle wore THAT t-shirt to Karen’s “press conference”. After all, if you’re someone’s real friend, would you mock them like that
Candiace continued in her blog saying, “Gizelle’s sense of entitlement makes her feel like she deserves instant gratification in her relationship with Karen and if I were Karen, I wouldn’t be giving in so fast either.”

Karen REALLY needed a friend during her financial issues last year. Gizelle chose to question everything Karen said instead. Gizelle wanting to move forward doesn’t mean Karen’s walls immediately come down.
A big point of contention between Gizelle and Karen was Karen’s lack of transparency about her business affairs. Gizelle believed she deserved to be privy to all details because that is what she wanted.
Candiace touched on THAT as well saying, “She has to earn the right to know what’s happening in Karen’s business dealings. Everyone gets respect until you give them a reason to pull back.”
Well, Karen definitely had reason to pull back. Although how can you not forgive someone who bakes you cookies? Scandalous.
Candiace finished her blog thoughts saying, “Karen had no reason not to share her business plans with Jermaine because aside from Jermaine being a savvy astute entrepreneur and business mogul herself, she didn’t glue letters onto a t-shirt to make fun of her friend’s dire straights. So there’s that.”
A resolution between Karen and Gizelle does not seem possible at this point. There is so much mistrust present between the two to ever truly move forward.
However, never say never! I’m sure people never thought in the OC that the “Tres Amigas” would ever move forward either. Gizelle and Karen are just the east coast Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. Whoop it up and be friends again!
Perhaps they should give up trying to be friends again and simply learn to coexist. However, you can’t fault the women for trying to get back to a good place. It’s sad to watch though.
