Gizelle Bryant is speaking out about Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard’s explosive season 5 fight.
In a new interview with HollywoodLife, the Real Housewives of Potomac OG reveals she “had PTSD” for “a while” after the fight and admits she was “super upset” about the battle as a whole.
“In the moment, [I was] super upset and bothered for a while for days. I think we all kind of had PTSD from it just for a while,” Gizelle said of Candiace and Monique’s fight that turned physical. “I didn’t find myself having to quote-unquote pick a side, [though]. I think that it’s silly [to do that]. I’m team Gizelle for life, and I’m team the show.”
She continued, “My position was, ‘What are we doing and is it what’s best for the show?’, and the answer is no and we have this beautiful platform, and it’s our responsibility to protect it, so if we’re doing things that make us look like we’re in a stereotypical box about black women, then I don’t think it’s good for the show, so that’s where I kind of landed on the incident. It is wrong, and we’ll see how it plays out.”
Meanwhile, Gizelle also revealed that she hasn’t talked to Monique in a long time.
As for why she hints that viewers will discover the reason “in about two episodes.”
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs on Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo.
