19 Things You Didn’t Know About… Gizelle Bryant

The OG Real Housewife of Potomac spills her deepest, darkest secrets!

My favourite perfume is Tom Ford’s Bitter Peach.

My earliest childhood memory is sitting at the table, eating dinner with my family, it was always such a special time having us all together.

 My favourite season is Fall, when the leaves change colour in DC where I live, my area is beautiful!

My star sign is Virgo.

My favourite holiday in the year is Thanksgiving, I’m always thankful for things in my life, and plus there’s always good food too!

One beauty product I always have in my handbag is lipgloss or lipstick. I don’t really have a favourite brand, I love all of them.

If I had to be on any other Real Housewives franchise, I would’ve said New York in the past, but recently it seems like the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are having so much fun this season, I’d love to join them.

My favourite song would be Amazing Grace. I grew up in the church, I still go to church and it’s such a special song, I just love it.

My career highlight would be starting my brand Everyhue beauty, it did extremely well, Target put it in 500 of their stores! I was in LA recently and I was driving on Sunset Boulevard with my children in the back and I saw my face on a Real Housewives of Potomac billboard, that was such a proud moment too. 

If there was a biopic made about my life I’d love to have Logan Browning play me, she’s beautiful.

My dream celebrity dinner party guests would be Jay Z, Simone Biles and Katie Ledecky. I’d love to understand how these people stay so focused on one thing for so long and make it happen. I think being an Olympian is such a phenomenal thing to do.

I studied marketing in college, I went to Hampton University.

I didn’t have any childhood nicknames but in college, I was just G. New Yorkers will shorten your name, whether you want them to or not!

I don’t have any pets and I never have. I wanted a little dog when I was a teenager but my mom said no and now my kids want a dog and I absolutely refuse! 

I don’t drink coffee, I drink water.

My plans for 2021 are doing the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion to do, i started a podcast reasonably shady we’re going to rock that out the rest of the year. looking forward to 2022.

The series I last binged is The Fall. It’s so good, when i travel I like to binge lots of stuff, I’m sitting on airplanes screaming about the show and people are probably looking at me!

My style icon would probably be Tracee Ellis Ross, she pulls anything off and in such a classy way. She always looks amazing.

My favourite flower is a pink tulip, I’ve always loved them. If I send my friends flowers, I always send pink tulips.

Gizelle is just one of the brilliant housewives starring in season 6 of Real Housewives of Potomac, available on hayu right now!
