Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards. Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. Danielle Staub and Teresa Giudice. Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. What do all of these things have in common? They’re legendary feuds in their own right. And I would argue that the ongoing back and forth between forever frenemies Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger on the Real Housewives of Potomac trumps them all, at least when it comes to expert shade-throwing. And somehow it still feels like it’s just getting started.
Gizelle and Karen have battled it out to be the Queen B of RHOP since the beginning. And their feud has so many iconic moments, from Gizelle’s #FreeUncleBen shirt to the Grand Dame’s attack on Jamal Bryant who lives in the phone. We had the mime scene. The birthday party seat fiasco. And countless arguments during reunions. It’s a feud that I will never tire of and never truly pick one side of — I love it for what it is, and I never want either of them to leave RHOP.
And the current season of RHOP is no different. It kicked off with Gizelle and the Grande Dame going head-to-head at Wendy Osefo’s nude interlude bash. They wasted no time throwing insults back and forth. And the most confusing and hilarious was when Karen said Gizelle had a “fiery box” and says that’s why they “went to Sing Sing.”
Gizelle appeared on Watch What Happens Live a week after Karen, and followed in her footsteps at throwing shade. Last week, La Dame called Gizelle a liar and a backstabber in the same sentence while also proclaimed she wants a better friendship with her. Like what? It’s clear Karen and Wendy will be buddy-buddy this season thanks to their mutual dislike for Gizzy. But this week it was Gizelle’s turn to retaliate, and she wasn’t holding back.
Andy Cohen asked her if anything Karen said in her explosive outburst hurt Gizelle. “I never get upset about anything she says because she crazy,” Gizelle said. Fair. And while she had no idea what Karen meant with the Sing Sing comment, but could only assume what she meant when she said “fiery box.”

“But her box is like old and stanky and smelly like chitlins,” Gizelle said. “I understand she’s talking about other people. Hers is chitlins.” If you’re not aware, chitlins are a Southern dish that consists of boiled or fried pig intestines. So Gizelle took it one step further comparing Karen’s “box” to such an unappetizing dish. Frankly, Karen’s box is nobody’s business except for Ray Huger. But she did start it.
Gizelle also revealed on WWHL that she is the person who gave Karen the nickname “Grande Dame.” “And she still hasn’t thanked me,” she said. Well, something tells me Karen isn’t going to be quick to send a thank you card to the West Wing after what Gizelle just said about her “box.” And I repeat, this feud is the gift that keeps on giving.
