*“Real Housewives of Potomac” star Gizelle Bryant is opening up about her ex-husband, colorism and the possibility of remarrying.
In an exclusive interview with theJasmineBRAND, Bryant revealed that she first addressed the subject of colorism when her children were adolescents.
“When my children were young, they said that their mother was white. They would tell that to their friends,” she tells the outlet. “And, and one day they told me that and I was like, what do you mean. They were taking it from a child’s perspective of I’m white as in that’s the color of my skin, [and] not a race perspective. So, I was like, all them kids that you told I was white, you go back tomorrow and you tell them that your mommy is Black.”
She continues: “That then started the discussion of, yes, there is a such thing as [as] they got older, colorism within the Black community, which I hated because I’m just like we as a Black community have so much to deal with that I hate to ever see infighting,” Bryant explains. “I feel like we’re all in this together so we shouldn’t be picking at each other. If we’re all equal, and if in this country were treated equally then fine let’s have some infight, but as of right now we don’t have time for that, at all.”

When it comes to diversity with the Housewives cast, she says: “I think [there’s] seven housewives franchises. There are two that are Black. I think I think that you know I’ve said it several times that if Atlanta was not successful Potomac would not be here. Atlanta was successful. Thank you ladies. Thank you Kenya, thank you Nene, thank you Kandi, Porsha… all of them. I think they’re fantastic.”
Adding, “I think that they are starting to realize that Black people don’t just come in one box. We’re not the same so, there is an interest to see a lot of different personalities and Black people that come from different walks of life. I think they’re now realizing, oh there’s an interest in seeing that. So, I think they’re getting it.”
Bryant reunited with her ex-husband, megachurch pastor Jamal Bryant, with whom she shares three daughters. When asked if she’s down with tying the knot again with the pastor, she explained: “It’s not off the table by any means. There’s a lot of other things that needs to be [in place]. My kids are in high school. I’m not moving my children out of high school. So, yes, [but] when, I don’t know.”
