Who exactly is Gizelle Bryant? As one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Potomac, I have a feeling she’ll be a household name very soon.
The former wife of pastor, Jamal Bryant, Gizelle divorced her ex due to his fidelity issues and is a single mom of three young girls. But that’s not all. Her father, Curtis Graves, served (1967-1973) as the first African American member of the Texas House of Representatives since 1899, also worked for NASA for thirty years.
Gizelle hobnobs with the rich and famous: Gayle King, ballet dancer, Misty Copeland, and actress, Britney Tankard. She knows Top Chef contestant Timothy Dean. She used to sell her Sweet Gizelle baked goods in his restaurant.
A former sorority girl, Gizelle now donates her time to various charities, including raising funds beautify and redevelop Birmingham, Alabama and Hill Harper’s Manifest Your Destiny Foundation. Professionally, she’s working on a new makeup line geared for women of color.
So our new housewife is stunning, has a business to promote, and famous connections. I would expect no less of a Housewife. I’m excited to watch this new franchise, how about you?
