Real Housewives of Potomac

Gizelle Bryant Thinks She “Was Just Really Wrong” About Sherman Douglas

The much-anticipated nuptials of Candiace Dillard and Chris Bassett was enough of an affair to get all the feuding Real Housewives of Potomac together.  The significant others showed up as well, and it seems that this group of partners get more involved in the drama than usual.  But one person who chose to stay away, was Gizelle Bryant’s now ex-boyfriend Sherman Douglas.

Gizelle tearfully revealed that Sherman decided not to accompany her to the wedding.  He made a habit of not showing up to notable events even last season, including Gizelle’s birthday party.  After previously professing his love to her on camera, Sherman left Gizelle understandably confused at his behavior.  She decided to attend the wedding and face the questions and gossip anyway.  Gizelle seemed so raw in her emotions that she even felt compelled to try and make amends with Karen Huger.  But now that Gizelle has had time to process all that happened, she is speaking about the breakup with objectivity.

Here’s what Gizelle said to Bravo’s Daily Dish about giving the relationship another chance.  “Sherman was very much calling me and trying to see me and spend time with me, which we did.  And at that point, I decided to really take it seriously.  We had broken up several times, so I’m like, ‘If we’re gonna do this, let’s do this right.’  So we started some counseling, and then it didn’t work out.”

Gizelle thinks she misjudged Sherman.  “And I really felt like he wanted us to be back together and wanted us to work had to there and I was wrong,” she said, “I was just really wrong.  So you live and you learn.  You can’t beat yourself up over it.”

So what is Gizelle looking for in a new man?  She said, “I think that’s the best thing because I really need somebody who’s gonna be there for me and be strong for me and handle all that I do.  I have a big life and a big world, and if you can’t handle it, then I need to move on.”

When asked how her daughters felt about the breakup, Gizelle responded, “yes they like Sherman, but they like their mommy more, so they really just want me to be happy.  And they realize if I’m not happy with Sherman, it’s fine.  You know, the right person will come along.”

Gizelle reveals that she has been dating.  She may or may not be involved with, “a little something something.  I’m taking things very slowly.  This is all baby steps for Gizelle.”

One thing is for sure, Gizelle will be a lot more cautious about introducing a new man to her costars, “they’re gonna meet him when I get married, on that day, on the wedding day, yes.”

All joking aside, Gizelle plans to be more guarded with her emotions, “No, it’s gonna be somebody that is obviously very serious.  You know what, I think I’m just gonna date whoever it is lightly, like light dating until I really know that it’s real.”

RHOP Candiace Dillard Real Housewives Of Potomac

Last week’s Real Housewives of Potomac season premiere set the stage for a drama-filled season. The cookie moment between Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger was iconic. It’s so fun watching those two ladies try to outdo each other in the shade department. We also got that NASTY scene with Michael and Ashley Darby that our eyes can never unsee. We deserve a public apology for that moment.

The drama between Candiace Dillard and her mom looked like it might spoil her big day. Her mom simply did not want her half brother there. Last week they fought over the situation, but surely they won’t fight at the wedding right? Her mom is her own biggest fan, so she might want to put the spotlight on herself. I cannot wait for this roller coaster wedding episode with the entire cast present.

We’ve all heard of a bridezilla, but what about a momzilla? Candiace Dillard’s mom is doing everything she can to add drama to this wedding. During tonight’s Real Housewives of Potomac episode, Candiace walks down the aisle, but not without some shade. Her mom insults her wedding dress. She’s still hating on Candiace for inviting her own brother. And, most likely, she doesn’t crack a smile one time. Beyond bitter. Poor Candiace.

And there are more issues at the wedding than mama drama.

Robyn Dixon Thinks, “Karen Huger Needs To Make Up Her Mind”

On the season premiere of Real Housewives of Potomac, Gizelle Bryant made a significant attempt to reconcile with Karen Huger.  She brought freshly baked homemade cookies right to Karen’s front door.  And considering how remote Karen’s front door is in relation to the rest of the cast, the most hopeful among us thought it would be enough of a gesture to get Gizelle back into Karen’s good graces.

A cautiously optimistic Gizelle called Robyn Dixon on the way over to give her the scoop.  These two have been very fixated on leading Karen to the waters of self-awareness.  It’s been a fruitless endeavor at this point but it has brought Robyn and Gizelle closer.  So who better to ask about Karen and Gizelle’s encounter than Robyn.

Word on the street is that Gizelle Bryant is back for another season of Real Housewives of Potomac. Gizelle is clearly the breakout star of the show. That doesn’t appear to be changing. She’s majorly messy, but she has some of the best Real Housewives one-liners. Another thing remaining unchanged is her feud with Karen Huger.

Gizelle and Karen have been friends for many years, but things are NOT looking good for the future. There is enough shade between them to block out the sun. On the season premiere, Gizelle baked cookies from THE HEART. She tried to drop them off to the Grand Dame. However, the drive by baked goods delivery didn’t sit well with Karen. WE ARE DYING TO KNOW: what does Gizelle think about what went down in Great Falls?

Gizelle Bryant Admits She Brought Karen Huger Cookies Just To See If She Lived At Her House

Real Housewives of Potomac is back for Season 4. Most of the ladies are at their peak petty right out of the gate. Mainly, Gizelle Byant and Karen Huger. Gizelle persuaded her daughters to bake cookies for a grieving Karen. Gizelle bombarded Karen with a phone call when she was a few minutes away from her Great Falls home. Obviously, she wanted to catch the Grand Dame off guard while she was on camera.

Karen wasn’t going to fall for that though. During Gizelle’s first call, Karen told her not to come over. When she called again, Karen said that her mysterious friend Matt Byars would meet her at the door instead. In response, Gizelle refused to deal with Matt, who she dislikes for no discernible reason. So what was Gizelle thinking durring what is bound to be labeled as cookiegate?

RHOP Karen Huger Real Housewives of Potomac

The Real Housewives of Potomac are back!! A new season of Potomac means a new season of the Grand Dame Karen Huger. There’s something hilariously bizarre about Karen that leaves you wanting more. She’s messy. She’s mysterious. Plus, she has that WEIRD and RANDOM friendship with Matt Byars. Who even is he? Best friend? Coworker? Lawyer? The world may never know.

A major talking point from the premiere was Gizelle Bryant’s attempt to deliver cookies to Karen’s home. All things considered, Gizelle is lucky Karen let her anywhere near that house. Gizelle hasn’t proven to be the greatest friend to Karen over the years. Nonetheless, Karen graciously accepted the cookies. Then, she swiftly closed the door in Gizelle’s face. It’s hard to gauge where they stand, but Karen is spilling all the tea. 

RHOP Matt Real Housewives of Potomac

Last season on the Real Housewives of Potomac, Karen Huger held a “press conference” and introduced the reality TV world to Matt Byars.  Her costars didn’t know what to make of his presence there or in what capacity he worked for Karen.  Matt seems to be a jack-of-all-trades functioning as Karen’s “assistant,” “part of her management team,” her “attorney,” and her “everything.”

Gizelle Bryant summed up her costars bewilderment. She said, “I have absolutely no idea who this person is sitting next to me.” Well, finally Gizelle and costars Monique Samuels, Robyn Dixon, Ashley Darby,Candiace Dillard, and viewers at large will get an answer.
