Gizelle Bryant is back in the dating game this season of The Real Housewives of Potomac, and she already seems to be off to a great start. She had a lovely first date with her friend Kevin, and it looks like he'll continue to woo her in Sunday's episode at 9/8c. He even seems to have her mom's seal of approval.
So it's no surprise that Gizelle has a new attitude when it comes to dating this season. "Season 1, I was down to date and just have fun, as opposed to really taking it seriously and having it being a bit more meaningful," she told The Daily Dish ahead of this season of RHOP. "I think that you'll see in Season 2, I want to make a great decision as far as my dating life is concerned, because it doesn't [just] affect me; it also affects my children. I want to be able to find somebody that loves my kids, loves me, and that I can have in my life potentially forever."
In addition to wanting a guy with "some cash flow in the pocket," Gizelle, who is mom to three daughters, has a couple of other musts when it comes to potential partners. "I love for a guy to have a sense of humor. If he's too serious, I can't really handle him," she said. "And he needs to treat my kids extremely well."
Gizelle said that she's enjoying the dating scene and "it's going well" for her these days. But she's saying "no way" when it comes to online dating. "I really have not gotten to a place where I feel like I need to do that. I've never been in a situation in which I was looking for a date. Guys have just been available," Gizelle explained. "I just feel like that opens the door for crazy people."
So as Gizelle tries to meet guys IRL, there's one RHOP lady she'd like to have as a wingwoman in the future. "Ashley [Darby] is awesome. Rule No.1 with dating is from the beginning, you're just having fun, and she gets that, and she's a great wingwoman," Gizelle said. "Maybe I will take Ashley up on that. She's a fun girl. I like spending time with her."
If Mr. Right comes along, Gizelle, who is divorced from megachurch pastor Jamal Bryant, said she would consider getting married again. "Yes. I'm not opposed to it," Gizelle said. "If the situation was right and the guy was right and I fell head-over-heels in love and my kids were in love with him, absolutely."
