Gizelle Bryant Opens Up About Her Divorce From Ex-Husband Jamal Bryant


Gizelle Bryant is now appearing on the Real Housewives of Potomac, but before that she was married to megachurch leader Jamal Bryant, but unfortunately, their marriage ended when Gizelle found out her husband was having an affair.

“Actually the young lady told me,” she admitted to OK Magazine. “She called me and told me. That was a lovely day.”

“So then after that, obviously I approached him about it and he admitted it,” she said. “So the rest of it, the meat of the infidelity came from him. Not from her.”

“It was extremely isolating and lonely because I really felt like I didn’t have anyone to talk to because there was such a spotlight on he and I in Baltimore,” she confessed. “I really had to lean on my true friends and family to get me through it.”

“I had these little kids,” she explained. “At the time, my oldest was 2 and my twins were 1. I really just kind of focused in on being a mom and getting us through it.”

But Gizelle still tries to coparent with her ex-husband.

“It’s one day at a time,” she said. “But we are now 7-8 years in, so we kind of got it down to a science.”

“There are always little rough days here and there, but he and I are really good friends. And we’ve always been good friends, so we’re really at a good place,” she continued. “You just got to put your big girl panties on and just move on.”

    1. Sally, I think you may be able to handle this one, because their drama is completely superficial. The premise of the show originally was centered around a group of women in an exclusive social club, so they are obsessed with all things in Potomac society. The show has very clear villains, underdogs, sugar babies , and neutral girls, but you won’t see anyone rolling around on the ground, no hair pulling, no exposes that one is a former kidnapper turned federal informant; everyone will be strictly clean…but that’s also part of what makes them annoying, which can also be very entertaining if you want fluff.

  1. Like Potomac so far. Really don’t like the chick who thinks she is all that….the one who wanted someone to move out of “her seat” when she arrived almost an hour late to her own function. Talk about poor etiquette.

    1. I know. Bringing a framed etiquette lesson, which I thought was a mirror during the episode. Shows how completely off I can be & I just went with it being a mirror and everything I thought that meant!
      I was taught class was making everyone in your presence feel comfortable. Emily Post baby. Never putting anyone on the spot, never trying to humiliate anyone, never putting them down to lift yourself up. When a woman learns to lift herself up with self-respect, she learns class.
