Ashley Darby Charrisse Jackson Jordan Gizelle Bryant Karen Huger Monique Samuels Real Housewives of Potomac - RHOP Robyn Dixon

Gizelle Bryant Admits Ashley Darby Shouldn’t Have Been “Ambushed” At Her Place Of Business!

Sunday night’s RHOP was intense, emotional, and dramatic from start to finish!

Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon showed up at OZ to confront Ashley Darby about how she handled the rumors of Juan Dixon’s Potomac hook-ups, and in this week’s Bravo Blog Gizelle Bryant defended her involvement in the situation, and insisted it was about more than just supporting Robyn!

First, it was Karen Huger that thought Ashley was a rude, inconsiderate humping banshee. Then she said highly inappropriate things to Charrisse Jackson Jordan causing her to feel like Ashley was immature and ignorant. Then the Robyn Dixon/Juan accusations just brought Ashley to a new level of hot fish frying messiness. Now when all these things are happening I am defending Ashely, being her biggest cheerleader. I’m VOUCHING for her, telling all the other ladies that Ashley means well, she really doesn’t want to be messy, she just can’t help it sometimes,” Gizelle recalled. Adding, “I’m saying, “ladies come on, I mean… she’s cute, and she smells fresh and her hair makes her like a cuddly chia pet”. How can you NOT like a chia pet? So yes, I needed to look at Ashley in the eyeballs and tell her that she had crossed the line and has gone way too far,” Gizelle justified.

However she did recognize that the time and the place were all wrong for such a heated, loud confrontation!

There is an old saying, “DON’T POKE THE BEAR”, because if the bear wakes up from its comfortable, calm, laid back sleep then everybody needs to run for cover. I had no idea that Robyn was as angry as she was. If I knew that in advance I would not have suggested that we go to OZ and confront Ashley. Now you know I love a good confrontation, however, that was not a conversation that should have taken place at anybody’s business let alone Ashley’s. Ashley deserved to hear everything that we said in the way that we said it but she didn’t need to be ambushed…my bad,” Gizelle admitted.

Not only did she yell things about her ex-husband at Gizelle as she left OZ, but Ashley had a lot of negative things to say about the Bryant’s marriage in her interviews. Gizelle wasn’t really fazed or offended by what Ashley had to say, but she did imply that the Darby’s are near the point of no return!

I don’t have an issue or concern with anyone making comments about my marriage. My marriage is old, fossil-like, very crusty news…where are the dinosaurs? However, people need to realize that I have been there done that so I have great knowledge and insight in a marriage that is one signature away from being a divorce,” she said. Given that the preview for next week shows Ashley and Michael in a huge fight, threatening to end the marriage, Gizelle may be onto something.

Karen and Gizelle have had a very tumultuous relationship, but on Sunday night they were charitable, sweet, and fun to watch; it was a welcomed change of pace! Gizelle was so genuine in her reaction and comments about Karen’s speech; none of us saw her vulnerable confession coming!

Karen telling her story was the bravest thing that I’ve seen any of my friends do in a long time. I was happy that she allowed us to be a part of that night with her. She made us all very proud and it brings tears to my eyes just thinking off all the people that she is going to help by just telling HER story. Bravo, Karen,” Gizelle complimented.

Gizelle and RHOP newbie Monique Samuels don’t see eye-to-eye, so when Monique tried to get Gizelle’s contact information at the end of Karen’s event, she wasn’t having it!

Monique went from putting me and Kal under FBI surveillance in her home. She had her friends read our lips and strain their ears to hear things that were NOT said to them. To calling me all kinds of terrible names, to asking me for my number so we can be besties ….NOT TODAY,” Gizelle wrapped.

Thoughts on Gizelle’s blog? Are you shocked she admitted they shouldn’t have gone to OZ? Do you think she defended Ashley since last season? Whose side are you on? What did you think of Karen’s speech? Were you surprised to hear her vulnerable confession? Should Gizelle have given Monique her number? Do you like Gizelle this season?

    Gizelle is the biggest sh..starter. Robyn quit lying to everyone, y’all r playing house cause that’s what u want. I think it’s her ex that doesn’t want to marry nd she is saying it’s her to save face. But it’s not working!!!!!! Ashley could have found a better way to tell what she heard, but don’t shoot the messenger. There’s a lil truth to every rumor. Charrice started wit Ashley. Ashley had every right to get bk wit her. Gizelle quit tlkn bout Monique, it makes u look so stupid. U r beyond jealous of that girl nd her life!!!!!!

      At the end of Karen’s event I was laughing because like Ashley said – she and Monique are the youngest of the group and were acting like the adults and trying to move on.

    Look last season was dull and way too much talk about manners. They got season 2, but you know the instruction was to step up the drama. They are. Will it succeed? Time will tell.

    Gizelle is a shit stirring little shit. You don’t go to someone’s home and make fun of them, talk shit in front of their friends and then blame everyone else cuz you got caught.
    And the whole ambushing Ashley with Robyn was truly classless. Whatever Ashley may have said to Charisse or how Karen feels is IRRELEVANT and none of your damn business.
    And we can see plain as day how jelly you are of Monique and it makes you look UGLY.
