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.”
