Does Gizelle Bryant Haze Newcomers?

Gizelle Bryant and Monique Samuels did not get off to a good start during their high tea on The Real Housewives of Potomac this season. This made Karen Huger wonder if Gizelle hazes group newbies as she was reminded when Gizelle met Ashley Darby and her husband Michael and had a lot of questions for them.

But Gizelle told The Daily Dish in April that she doesn’t agree with what Karen said, but she added that “a little bit of hazing ain’t bad.”

“However, Monique came to the group via Charrisse [Jackson Jordan], so she was already gonna get some shade. That’s just on association,” Gizelle explained. “Had she come from Robyn [Dixon], then I would have probably welcomed her with open arms immediately.”

When Gizelle first met Monique at the high tea, she and Charrisse were still in the middle of their intense fight. Gizelle said that if she and Charrisse were on better terms at that time, “it would have been all good” between her and Monique from the start. “But, you know what? Monique was new. Ashley was new. And Ashley held her own quite well, and I love Ashley,” Gizelle shared. “So we’ll see what happens with Miss Monique.”

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.
