Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon are defending how they handled Mia Thornton tossing a drink in Wendy Osefo’s face in the middle of an argument.
The Real Housewives of Potomac stars appeared on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, where they insisted that Wendy and Mia’s fight was nothing like Monique Samuels and Candiace Dillard’s season 5 showdown.
“It’s apples and oranges,” Gizelle said. “Like Monique was definitely beating up Candace. It was a drink. It was water across the table.”
Gizelle then says that she told Mia that she was out of line for tossing a drink in Wendy’s face but says the scene ended up on the editing room floor.
“They didn’t show it, but in another clip, Karen and I were talking, and I said, ‘Mia should not have done that.’ That was totally wrong. However, I don’t like Wendy, so I internally kiki’d when it happened,” she noted.
Both Gizelle and Robyn then confirmed again that they told Mia she was wrong but claim Bravo didn’t show it.
Robyn explained that she even tried to de-escalate the drama by encouraging Wendy to shut it down. Apparently, Robyn was worried that the fight would hurt Wendy’s job.
“I said I, I thought Mia was wrong in the drink throw. And I think there was some context left out because I was telling Wendy, I was trying to tell her to stop cuz I was really worried about what may happen to her with her job,” Robyn explained. “And I did not want her to get physical on tv. And so that’s why I was saying you’re antagonizing her because I didn’t want her to cause Mia to do something that would require Wendy to defend herself. “
The green-eyed bandits then noted that they aren’t the “accountability police” and that they can’t help what the viewers do and don’t understand.
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs on Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
