Gizelle Bryant Doesn’t Understand Why Katie Rost Called Her a Hypocrite


Gizelle Bryant faced off with Katie Rost during this week’s episode of RHOP and now she is speaking out about what happened in a new interview with Bravo. Bryant defends her “unassumingly smart” comment towards Rost and explains she doesn’t understand what’s wrong with reading a public blog aloud.

Bravotv.com: What do you think of Katie’s reaction to your concerns about her gala and her “kicking you off” the committee?

Gizelle Bryant: The way that Katie says “not sure” about EVERY question asked in reference to an event that she is putting together is AMAZING. It inspires me to want to throw a big charity gala. I don’t need to know who’s coming, have a venue, or even invite people, but it’s going to be a HUGE success. Katie kicking Robyn and I off the committee and even uninviting us to the event made me feel so sad inside that I almost shed a tear….HA! I was actually relieved…who wants to put on boxing gloves and step into a heavy weight fight in order to help someone? I was shocked that Katie got so defensive so fast, we were just asking for clarity, we didn’t ask for a kidney or a pint of blood, just a venue and a guest list…geesh!

Bravotv.com: Did you think Katie would be so upset about you reading her blog? What do you think about Katie calling you a hypocrite?

GB: Relationships are tough, even the best of them, and break-ups are even tougher. Figuring out how to handle the break-up can be even harder. That is why I love that everyone, I mean everyone writes a blog about their break-up and posts it on the internet for the world to read. And when I say EVERYONE, I’m only talking about Katie. How do you post a blog for the world to read, but then get mad when people read it? It’s like inviting everyone over for Thanksgiving dinner and then get mad when people start eating the food…Makes. No. Sense. Katie calling me a hypocrite, I will refer back to the previous sentence…Makes. No. Sense.

Bravotv.com: Why were you so upset about the accommodations – had there been rooms available would you have really left?

GB: Per Ashley’s admission, she didn’t want to be honest about the accommodations because she felt like if she was then I wouldn’t have come. I don’t like to be lied to under any circumstances. Tell me the truth, tell me that I’m going sleep in a kiddie bed with Robyn and stuffed animals. Then let me make the decision as to whether or not I want to participate. Lying to me is big time shady and makes me want to cuss everybody and anybody.

Bravotv.com: What did you mean when you said Katie was unassumingly smart?

GB: Unassumingly smart is a compliment. Come on let’s face it, Katie doesn’t look like she is about to recite a couple of pages of War and Peace, or the Constitution. Katie is a fun loving girl who loves to laugh. Every so often when you think she’s not listening she will say something brilliant. It makes you pause and reflect. You tilt your head slightly to the side and just say, well where the hell did that come from?!?!

Thoughts on what Gizelle had to say?

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Giselle really has it out for Ashley, and with her seed planting she’s not being a good friend to Katie. Granted A & K are a mess, but frankly it stuck out a lot more this episode that Giselle was being an entitled brat vs. Ashley being a bad hostess or Katie being RHoP’s version of scatterbrained Sonja Morgan.

    Giselle showed how classless she is by being so rude at the beach house. She’s bitter and acts ugly. Robyn wasn’t much better. Ashley showed more class than the two of them put together. If i were her I’d have invited them both to leave, that first night. Let them find a ride and room, the rude b*tches.

      Actually Robyn took up for Ashley, and expressed that she was grateful for the getaway. She made light of the rooming situation by saying it was nostalgic (as in reminding her of her room growing up).

      It was squarely on Giselle and Charrise to play the fool and start Googling hotel accommodations (horriffic behavior, to be sure)- but even Charrise later apologized for her behavior as she has been acting out (the undertone being from the marital strife she’s experiencing), and wanted to get the weekend back on track as a bonding experience.

    I think a couple of these ladies are suffering from the big green monster Jealousy!! Robin and Gizelle have NADA!! Someone invites you to their beach house and you complain because you have to sleep in a twin bed??? Maybe they should go to their own beach houses, but wait a minute they don’t own one. Ungrateful

  • starr

    All of these women are very fake & seem to have a sense of entitlement. Their behavior at the beach house showed no manners & completely lacking in class. They made Ashley feel bad. Instead of feeling bad, I would’ve asked them to leave & take their un-appreciation & poor manners with them.

  • Judge Judy

    I was going to post on Gizelle and some of the other women’s behavior and I see everyone else noticed it too. All of this loud boasting about how much class they have coupled with shockingly entitled ignorant lack of manners is low class playing at being high class without having any idea what that actually looks like. Anyone who opens their snout and craps all over the hostess’s choice of sleeping arrangements, entertainment and/or food just wouldn’t be invited back among anyone I know.
