If you caught the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion, you know that there was a lot to cover. In one of the most explosive seasons ever, we had infidelity, babies, birds, and alleged fake relationships. Yes, one of the main topics discussed was whether Gizelle Bryant was really in a relationship with her unfaithful ex or if she was just doing it for cameras. Well, according to Monique Samuels, it’s the latter, and she even came with receipts to prove it.
During the reunion, Karen Huger called their relationship an “arrangement” as rumors had run rampant that he had secretly fathered a baby with a member of his congregation. While Gizelle chalked it up to people running their mouths and denied the rumor having any truth to it, Monique came in singing a different tune. Monique claimed that “When y’all was announcing you got back together, he told his girlfriend at the time it was just reality TV, and it wasn’t true.” When Andy pressed for further details, Monique claimed that she had “a bunch of screenshots, pictures of him in her bed and everything else” from the other woman.
Monique claimed that she did not want to get involved at first, adding, “I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m not going there, I don’t play dirty.’ But, since Gizelle likes to play dirty, I’ll go ahead and return since I’m here right now. He’s definitely been talking to another woman, and it’s clear conversations, and if you’d like to see them, I got them in my little receipt book right there.”
In true Housewives reunion fashion, Monique had a binder of texts and screenshots stating that she could “call out his phone number? I’m sure she knows his phone number is” to prove the texts were legit. Then when Monique gave out the number (bleeped so viewers couldn’t hear this private information), Gizelle confirmed that it indeed was his.
When Monique reminded Gizelle that not even her girls were happy about their attempt at a rekindled romance, Gizelle wasn’t having any of it, stating, “I don’t believe anything that comes out of Monique’s mouth or anything she has in her binder. I’m glad she’s done some binder-ing. I knew she was coming to make up whatever.”
The fact that Gizelle’s daughters and father (who are the people she is closest to) aren’t encouraging this relationship speaks volumes. It had to be pretty humiliating to have Monique come with evidence; however, Gizelle seems to be stuck in denial.
Stay tuned for next week to see if anyone has a change of tune.
