Don't Let the Apology Fool You — Charrisse Jackson Jordan Still Has Hard Feelings Toward Gizelle Bryant
"I thought we had moved on, but when I watch the show, I see that we haven't," the #RHOP mom said.
After starting the season off on the tensest of terms, Charrisse Jackson Jordan and Gizelle Bryant actually seem to be moving past their issues this season of The Real Housewives of Potomac. And they were, according to Charrisse, who recently told The Daily Dish that she and Gizelle "do kind of become friends again" this season.
But now that Charrisse is reliving this season by watching the episodes, those newfound warm and fuzzy feelings for Gizelle seem to have disappeared as quickly as they came back. "When I saw that clip where she's telling Robyn [Dixon] that I told her I'm cheating on my husband, I don't even talk to Gizelle, so I'm like, when did that conversation take place? Our conversations are very surface, like how are the kids, and there's always someone around. We've never had a private conversation, so it's interesting how she has these conversations in her head with me that I wasn't in attendance [for]," Charrisse explained, adding that she has not been unfaithful to husband Eddie Jordan and never told Gizelle that she had been, either. "So that's a little disheartening to hear that. I thought we had moved on, but when I watch the show, I see that we haven't."
Now, looking back at Gizelle's apology at the high tea, Charrisse said that she doesn't buy it one bit. "Did you see the reason why she apologized? Because it was making her look some type of way, not that she really felt authentic about the apology," Charrisse said. "It was just because people were perceiving her the wrong way, so she apologized."
Gizelle previously told The Daily Dish that she absolutely meant her apology to Charrisse. "Yes, it was very genuine. I do feel strongly about the fact that Charrisse and I have known each other for six, seven years, and we've had a relationship that has been fine," Gizelle said. "So I do want us to get to a better place. And it's better for the group if we can hash out these problems and move forward."
But knowing what she knew when the ladies gathered for a day at the Preakness, Charrisse said that letting Gizelle out of "probation" and attempting to get their friendship back on track seemed like a good idea at the time. "That's a good question. I should have left her in probation. But I decided to let Gizelle out of probation because, actually, I'm a fun person. I like to have a good time. I don't like negative energy," she explained. "It was just causing too much friction between the ladies. Robyn felt like she was in the middle — I don't know why — but Robyn is in the middle and making a big deal. So I thought it would be easier to just forget about it and move on — at least I thought."
It looks like Gizelle and Robyn will have more to say about Charrisse in next Sunday night's episode of RHOP at 9/8c. Your preview awaits, below.
