'Real Housewives of Potomac' Season 5 Reunion: Fans cheer as Karen throws shade at Gizelle on Jamal's absence
Fans were thrilled to see Gizelle being put under the spot and couldn't stop praising Karen for her epic clap backs
Gizelle Bryant found herself in the hot seat during the Season 5 reunion of 'Real Housewives of Potomac'. Through the course of the season, Gizelle has been busy throwing shade at Monique Samuels and Karen Huger, along with her best friend and fellow housewife Robyn Dixon. During the reunion, Monique and Karen teamed up against Gizelle, and read the housewife to filth.
It all began when the host of the reunion Andy Cohen asked Gizelle about her current relationship status with her ex-husband Jamal Bryant. Gizelle was keen on giving her relationship with Jamal another chance, despite their daughters not being onboard with it. When Gizelle informed Andy that things were fine between Jamal and her, Karen jumped in and began casting her doubts over the couple's relationship.
Karen reveals that the word on the street was Gizelle and Jamal were faking their relationship to save Gizelle's job on the show. Gizelle was taken aback, but before she could squash those rumors, Monique jumped in with some receipts to prove that Jamal and Gizelle's relationship might not be as rosy as they want to portray it to the world.
Monique opened her binder full of receipts and began reading out text messages between Jamal and another woman, while he was reportedly in a relationship with Gizelle. In the texts, Jamal assures the other woman that his relationship with Gizelle isn't serious.
Gizelle tried her best to hold herself together and declared that she wasn't going to believe anything that came out of Monique's mouth. Monique then points out how Gizelle brings a new man to every season's reunion. Before Gizelle could respond to it, Karen asks Gizelle if Jamal was going to attend the reunion. When Gizelle says that he wouldn't be joining them, Karen slyly says "of course" as it further validates her theory of Jamal and Gizelle faking their relationship.
Fans were thrilled to see Gizelle being put under the spot, and couldn't stop praising Karen for her epic clap backs. A fan tweeted, "The way Monique & Karen are sitting on Gizelle's neck is hilarious. Then Karen gonna end it with is Jamal coming she know damn well Jamal ain’t coming. I live for it!! #RHOP."
"Karen putting the final nail in the coffin asking if Jamal coming! #RHOP," commented a fan. "I swear I literally heard the Law & Order sound drop after Karen said 'Is Jamal coming?'. La Grande Dame was applying PRESSURE! #RHOP," joked a fan.
