“The word on the street is that I’m the word on the street.”
Gizelle is a vibrant socialite and resident of the Potomac area who effortlessly manages her jam-packed calendar as a single mother of three daughters, Grace and twins Angel and Adore. She was raised by very prominent and powerful parents who set the tone for her path in their work in government and philanthropy. After graduating from Hampton University, she married megachurch pastor/activist Jamal Bryant and lived in Baltimore in wedded bliss for seven years. But when the marriage came crumbling down on her, this resilient woman decided it was time to move back to her old stomping ground of Potomac for a fresh start with her three girls.
Never one to stay down for too long, Gizelle keeps herself busy with multiple philanthropy projects. She works with the city council of Birmingham, Alabama to generate funds to revitalize the city and is currently working on an event to raise money for a number of local charities. Gizelle is committed to working hard and sees every obstacle as an opportunity. She is currently working on a makeup line geared to meet the needs for women of color and is on target to launch the line in 2016. Gizelle maintains her status as a sophisticated woman in the Potomac social scene and with her outspoken, no-nonsense demeanor; she is currently embracing a new chapter as she learns to date again and adjusts to single life.
