Following the August 2 Season 5 premiere of The Real Housewives of Potomac, cast member Gizelle Bryant appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home with guest Keke Palmer. During the After Show, Andy asked Gizelle if the RHOP cast has “all been in touch on a group chat or anything since the Black Lives Matter movement has heated up so much in the last few months?"
In the video above, Gizelle answered Andy’s question by explaining, “We work together in groups. We can’t all be together. We’ve still got some unsolved issues, but it’s nice to know that I can call on obviously Robyn, Wendy, Candiace, Ashley, and really pull on them if I need anything. And we are all in the same boat with regards to Black Lives Matter. I mean, we’re all Black women trying to just progress, and it’s gonna be interesting because not everyone feels the same about this movement, so it’s going to be interesting.”
During the episode’s Moment of Mazel, Gizelle and Keke each featured one of their favorite Black-owned businesses.
“I love the Legacy Center, which is in Atlanta,” said Gizelle. “The center is run by Jay and Ernestine Morrison, and what they do is all kinds of things for the community. But right now, the housing market is really key in allowing Black people to get wealth. So they are teaching Black entrepreneurs to get into the real estate market and stay in it."
Gizelle also noted the special connection between her family and the Legacy Center. “Also, this Legacy Center, they are members of Jamal’s church, and they have opened their doors to give food to the community every Saturday, and my kids have helped them do that.”
Keke highlighted candle, tea, and music company Alexandra Winbush.
“When you get the candle, you get a card that has a playlist on it so you can have music and everything like that,” she explained. “It’s just a really cool thing, it’s a fresh idea, and you can get them online, Alexandra Winbush.”
