The Real Housewives of Potomac is making headlines and trending on the internet, and it sounds like Bravo fans enjoy watching a new Real Housewives franchise. Gizelle Bryant was the first housewife to be introduced on the show, and she was quick to explain why she was a single mother.
When Gizelle stopped by Charrisse Jackson Jordan’s home to help her with the crab preparation, Jordan was not pleased when Bryant brought a friend. It didn’t seem like a big deal at the time, but it could have been another dig at Jordan. Clearly, something was building up, and the two had a dramatic conversation at the end of the crab party.
According to a new Bravo report, Gizelle Bryant is now opening up about the drama that went down between herself and Charrisse Jackson Jordan at her crab boil. During the first episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac, Gizelle hinted that Charrisse wasn’t being honest about her marriage, and this could have influenced how things went down during the second episode.

“I was really looking forward to cracking, sucking, and eating the crabs that I cooked at Charrisse’s house. I cooked them with my secret spice ingredients and even heated up a special dipping sauce. Sitting down with Charrisse I thought was going to be an easy breezy conversation. We were going to talk about the loud noises that I may have caused and up-to-date hair and makeup tips. But NOPE!…it turned quick fast and in a hurry into something else,” Gizelle revealed in her Bravo blog.
Of course, Gizelle Bryant appears to be close friends with Charrisse, as the two were joking about Bryant’s sex life and her dating life. Plus, Bryant’s behavior shocked Jordan, who threatened to throw her out of her home during the crab party.
“After sitting down with Charrisse and having the conversation, I still don’t know why she was soooooo mad. With her tone and disposition towards me you would think that I slapped her Momma, cursed her kids, or stole her favorite Gucci bag that she always, I mean ALWAYS wears. Since I did none of those things and never would, I’m still baffled and confused…there has got to be more to her madness,” Gizelle Bryant revealed, sharing that she was very confused about her co-star’s behavior.

There’s clearly some drama that’s building up between these two women. While Gizelle was just trying to be a fun and entertaining friend by helping Charrisse with the crabs, Jordan was quick to slam Gizelle Bryant and hint that she was from the ghetto. It is no secret that the ladies of Potomac put etiquette high on the list of importance, but Gizelle Bryant seemed to be an easy target. According to the Stir, Bryant struggled to fit in during the first few episodes, and it seems like she’s ready to defend her actions.
Of course, Bryant just brought a friend to the party out of courtesy and fun, but he wasn’t exactly welcomed in the home.
“Kal will forever protect his friend named Gizelle. He has not only been styling my hair for the past 15 years, he is one of my best friends. I would never speak for him about the interaction that he had with Karen because it was such an in the moment situation. Only God knows what really happened. HOWEVER, two divas standing to close to one another can only end up in an explosion,” Gizelle Bryant revealed in her blog, sharing that her friend will always defend her, even at another person’s party.
What do you think of The Real Housewives of Potomac? Do you think Gizelle Bryant was right in her behavior, or do you think she was being rude?
