Charrisse Jackson Jordan Claps Back at Gizelle Bryant for Her "Boyfriend" Comments
"She still repulses me," the #RHOP mom told The Daily Dish.
After a Real Housewives of Potomac reunion full of major revelations, Gizelle Bryant dropped a bombshell of her own when she appeared on Watch What Happens Live Sunday night. "Well, you know, they're gonna do what they've been doing. He's gonna be with his girlfriends, and she's going to be with her boyfriend, the fireman," Gizelle said of Charrisse Jackson Jordan's marriage (clip above). "He has big muscles and everything. He's cute. Go, Charrisse."
Though Charrisse tweeted that she felt "great to be the main topic of discussion" on WWHL Sunday night, she definitely didn't appreciate what was being said about her. "Well, basically, I was very disappointed that Gizelle would stoop to the level of being on a national station talking about my life that she knows nothing about, and creating a lie just for attention and airtime," Charrisse told The Daily Dish over the phone on Tuesday. "I don't know why I'm surprised because that's the type of person we dealt with all season, but this to me was an all-time low for her to even go there."
Charrisse also set the record straight about Gizelle's comments. "No, there's no truth to it," she said. "I mean, [Gizelle] sits there, and the thing that's crazy is that she used the term 'we.' 'Oh, we weren't surprised. We know she has a boyfriend.' I mean, she made it sound like it's common knowledge that Charrisse has a boyfriend. It's a bunch of BS that I don't know what her problem is, but it's crazy. No one will co-sign on that story. She used 'we,' I guess, to validate what she was saying, but no, there's no truth to it."
The RHOP mother of two said she believes Gizelle came across these rumors from someone on social media making up lies about Charrisse and then tagging the RHOP cast, Charrisse's daughter, and Rutgers University, her husband Eddie's former employer. "I didn't even give it any thought because what type of person does that? Why would you create an account just to talk about somebody? It just, to me, was just [lunacy]. So I gave it no weight," Charrisse said of the social media posts. "So that's where [Gizelle]'s getting it from. But she gets on television and some little crazy person that she doesn't even know on social media who made these accusations, she's gonna get on the show and present it like it's a fact."
Charrisse also called Gizelle "a chronic liar" who has made up that the two have previously discussed Charrisse's divorce and her plans to start online dating. What's more, Charrisse said Gizelle shouldn't be talking about her husband because she doesn't know anything about him. "She's never met my husband. She doesn't know my husband. But of course, people want to assume that because we're in two different states, it has to do with a woman. That is not the case. That is not the case. Our issues have had nothing to do with another being," she told The Daily Dish. "So to go on national television and say like you know a person you don't even know, who you've never met. You're just gonna put it out there that this person has several girlfriends, or whatever she said. That's just wrong."
Charrisse said she has seen Eddie recently, but they have not been in conversation. She also said it was difficult to have to talk about Gizelle's comments to her kids, Jackson and Skylar. "I have children. My kids are teenage children who I had to Monday morning tell them about [Gizelle] saying unwarranted comments about their father and myself," she said. "[Gizelle] is a lack of a woman. She is just disgusting, and yes, she still repulses me."
Charrisse said her friendship with Gizelle is now over. "Would you be friends with someone like that? Am I supposed to just act like it didn't happen?" she said. "I'm not gonna air [Gizelle's] dirty laundry, but she has a lot of dirty laundry, and she should be the last person on the cast to open her mouth about anyone's business because her business is worse than anyone on the show."
