Gizelle Bryant is a vibrant socialite, single mother of three daughters (Grace and twins Angel and Adore) and resident of the Potomac area who effortlessly manages her jam-packed calendar. She was raised by very prominent and powerful parents who set the tone for her path with their work in government and philanthropy. After graduating from Hampton University, she moved to Baltimore, where she married megachurch pastor/activist Jamal Bryant. When the marriage ended seven years later, however, this resilient woman decided it was time to move back to her old stomping grounds for a fresh start with her three girls.
Gizelle keeps herself busy with multiple philanthropy projects and entrepreneurial ventures. She generates funds to revitalize various major cities in order to help those in need or in transition. Gizelle is committed to working hard and sees every obstacle as an opportunity. She added author to her title when she released her first novel, My Word, in 2019, and two years later she and castmate Robyn Dixon launched the Reasonably Shady podcast, which is part of the BlackEffect podcast network. Reasonably Shady has become a huge success, with millions of downloads and an NAACP Award nomination. Gizelle maintains her status as a sophisticated woman in the Potomac social scene and with her outspoken, no-nonsense demeanor, is looking forward to what’s ahead.
