Real Housewives of Potomac is back, and one thing is obvious: Gizelle Bryant and Grande Dame Karen Huger need to have a serious talk about where their friendship is headed. And there can be only one Queen of Potomac, ladies!
After doubting that Karen even lived in her new mansion last season, Gizelle tried to smooth things over by delivering some home-made cookies to Karen’s home. Karen opened the door, accepted the cookies, but did not invite Gizelle in. At least it wasn’t sprinkle cookies. Remember when Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Melissa Gorga infamously brought the dreaded cookies to her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice?
Gizelle was dumped for the second time by boyfriend Sherman Douglas. Worse yet, it was a few hours before he was scheduled to accompany her to co-star Candiace Dillard’s wedding. So, what is a Housewife to do? Gizelle downed a ton of alcohol and hit the apology circuit. She apologized to Karen and Monique Samuels apologized to Gizelle. Everything is all good now, right?
Karen supported Gizelle by showing up for her brand event. Gizelle was stunned when Karen started discussing a new business venture, “The House of Huger,” with a stranger at the event. Karen had never mentioned it to Gizelle.
Gizelle wrote in her Bravo blog, “I was super excited that Karen showed up and supported me. It’s been a long time since she has done that. It was great for her to see me in action with EveryHue Beauty. I was more than happy to introduce my business contact to Karen, regardless of how she feels about me I want to see her successful and thriving.”
Gizelle organized a trip to New Orleans for all the RHOP ladies, so you know this will be a disaster. It is yet another opportunity for Ashley Darby to
drink like a fish avoid alcohol so that she can get pregnant. The group prepared, and then shared, a Creole meal during their first day in the Big Easy. But what happened next caused some major indigestion among the Potomac ladies.
Gizelle tried to bring up her feelings to Karen about their friendship in front of all the Housewives. Gizelle said, “Cause you… you champion, and you preach, ‘Gizelle, you have to show me that we’re friends. I’m like the show-me state. I’m Missouri.’ And I’m like, ‘That’s not fair.’ Because [when] I came to your house and asked you about your business, and you said, ‘Oh stay tuned.’ A stranger is introduced to you, and you answer all the questions,” Gizelle pointed out. She also added that she had been asking Karen those same questions for two years. Karen responded that business is separate from friendships. And then Karen left the table.
In her Bravo blog post, Gizelle concluded, “Karen once again got super sensitive and MISSED THE POINT. The conversation was about FRIENDSHIP not about business. Next time I’ll just talk to her about who makes braided wigs, because she clearly knows all about that.” Boom! Mic drop by Gizelle.
I wonder how the rest of the trip will play out. Will Gizelle and Karen put this issue behind them, or will it haunt their entire trip? And how long until the other ladies weigh in? I am guessing less than a minute.
