Gizelle Bryant was positively touched when her father, Curtis Graves, was supportive of her decision to get back with her ex, Jamal Bryant, as seen in the September 27 episode of The Real Housewives of Potomac.
"Gizelle, I want you to be happy. Now, I would never step in the way of anything that's gonna make you happy — ever," Curtis told Gizelle during her visit to Atlanta for daughters Grace, Angel, and Adore's restaurant relaunch. "If you think it's best for you and the girls, I'm in favor of it. I care about my granddaughters, so I want them to be happy."
Curtis continued to express his hope for Gizelle to find happiness while speaking to her and Jamal at their daughters' event. But when Curtis went off-camera to use the restroom, he shared that he had some reservations about Gizelle getting back together with her ex.
Gizelle opened up about the moment during the series premiere of Bravo's Chat Room on September 27. "My dad is 82 years old, y'all. So 82 year olds are gonna say something reckless out their mouth. And that's fine," Gizelle said. "He does support me, he loves me. If I got married tomorrow, he'd be walking me down the aisle, and that's all that ever matters to me."
Bravo's Chat Room co-host Porsha Williams shared that she can understand where Gizelle's dad was coming from, having experience with her own family's reaction to her relationships.
"Listen, at the end of the day, I have definitely been in serious relationships and through breakups, and I have had a breakup where you tell your family stuff, they don't get over it sometimes. They really don't," Porsha told Gizelle. "But what I love about your dad, though, is that he stands by you and your decision and what's gonna make you happy for your family."
Gizelle also explained that she and Jamal are "at a different place" in their relationship than when they were together the first time.
"I'm a different woman than when I was married to him. I have evolved, I've changed, I've built businesses, and I feel like he now looks at me in such a different way and respects me. So that's been the big difference for us," she shared on Bravo's Chat Room. "You know, we're now equals, as opposed to when I was married, which I didn't mind at the time, but it was all about him; I was living in his movie, and now we're living a movie together. So I feel like the love has always been there, the trust is there, and we're just gonna go down the road and see what happens."
Bravo's Chat Room continues with new episodes on Sundays and Mondays at 10:30/9:30c through October 12.
