Marlo Hampton sprung into action to call upon her "sisters at Bravo" to create an inspiring, empowering, and emotional PSA to support the Black Lives Matter movement. The visual combines the forces of women from across several Bravo shows —The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of Potomac, and Married to Medicine — and now we're hearing from one of the participants, Gizelle Bryant, about how it all came to fruition.
"To be honest with you when Marlo asked me to do it, she just sent me a text. I did my video. I sent it in. I had no concept of what it was really gonna be. And to see that all of these Black, beautiful Bravolebrities were on this PSA, I was so happy," Gizelle told The Daily Dish this week. "I immediately texted her and was like, 'Girl, you killed it. This is amazing.' And it, it makes me feel proud."
Marlo texted the group that she needed their contributions within a few days, and everyone stepped up to be a part of the inspiring PSA. "I think Marlo did a great job. And she put it together so quick. Just to see that everybody was on board was fantastic," Gizelle said.
The video includes women from RHOA, RHOP and Married to Medicine: Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill, Kandi Burruss, Eva Marcille, Tanya Sam, Nene Leakes, Porsha Williams, Monique Samuels, Ashley Darby, Candiace Dillard Bassett, Robyn Dixon, Karen Huger, Wendy Osefo, Dr. Jaqueline Walters and Curtis Berry, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe and Dr. Scott Metcalfe, and Buffie Purselle.
"It makes me feel like, you know what, I’m part of a group of women that got it going on and are refusing not to use their voice," she said. "That’s what I love."
Gizelle also appeared on an Instagram Live panel, Amplify Our Voices: An Open Dialogue on Being Black in America in support of the Black Lives Matter movement on June 8. You can check that out above.
