Word on the street is Gizelle Bryant thinks former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel was funnier when she was “broke.”
On Sunday’s episode of Bravo’s Chat Room, the Real Housewives of Potomac star revealed she wants broke Bethenny on her Real Housewives dream team.
Co-host Kate Chastain of Below Deck asked Gizelle, who would be part of her fantasy Real Housewives dream team.
“I would choose Erika Jayne [of ‘Beverly Hills’], cause, like, she has a jet, and we need to fly around the world in style,” Gizelle confessed.
“Then, I’m going to take broke Bethenny. And the reason why I want her when she was broke — like her Season 1, Season 2 — is because that’s when she was majorly funny. And she had one-liners, and she was ready, and she was hungry, and she was just like all over the place, in a great way,” she continued.
Bethenny was an OG cast member of the Real Housewives of New York when the franchise first debuted in 2008. Over the first two seasons of the show, fans watched Bethenny build her Skinnygirl empire. She ultimately left the franchise following season 3. A year later, in 2011, Bethenny sold Skinnygirl Margarita to Beam Global for $100 million.
She returned to RHONY in 2015 for season 7 before leaving again in 2019.
Gizelle went on to say that she would round out her team with fellow Chat Room co-host and RHOA star Porsha Williams.
Summer House‘s Hannah Berner said she would bring in the “big guns” for her dream Housewives team.
“Put that together with little me from ‘Summer House,’ and let’s see what happens,” she quipped.
RHOP airs on Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo.
