We Now Know Who Stole Gizelle Bryant's Tequila Bottle —The Answer, Explained

The Real Housewives of Potomac's Gizelle Bryant was determined to find out who stole her prized tequila bottle, prompting an explosive fight.

By Jax Miller

It was a real whodunit on a new episode of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, and no one was above suspicion when it came to the disappearance of one Housewife’s prized bottle of tequila.

It was an ornate, blue and white bottle of Clase Azul Tequila Reposado that became the star in Season 3, first introduced by The Real Housewives of Potomac’s Gizelle Bryant in Episode 3, as the ladies set sail on a yacht in Thailand.

Gizelle's Missing Tequila Bottle, Explained

At first, there was a misunderstanding when The Real Housewives of Miamis Alexia Nepola mistook the bottle for hers since she’d previously requested it. However, Gizelle said she had it specifically for their Phuket trip, and all was well when she agreed to share her spirits with the rest of the gang.

That is, until the tequila disappeared, as Gizelle pointed out to concierge Pepsi in Episode 5.

“So, Pepsi, I have an issue,” said the Potomac Housewife. “We can’t seem to find this bottle.”

The bottle was last seen when Gizelle, Pepsi, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams took shots at the end of Episode 3 after the Housewives returned from the yacht (if you missed Porsha having to hilariously cut Pepsi off, you’re in for a treat).

Through Pepsi, Gizelle issued a BOLO for the missing tequila, as she suspected it was taken by one of the ladies.

“Listen, I know I look like a diva, but Gizelle doesn’t ask for much,” she told producers. “I don’t drink wine. I don’t drink vodka. I drink tequila; this particular one.”

Discussing her suspicions with Porsha — who was at the bottom of Gizelle’s suspect list because of her preference for Hennessy — Gizelle said, come lunch, “Court is in session, and everybody has to be accountable for their whereabouts that night.”

She contemplated the other women as possible suspects, including Alexia, who “loves her champagne.” She also pondered whether cousins Whitney Rose and Heather Gay from The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City could have taken the booze.

“Whitney? I don’t think she did,” Gizelle told Porsha. “And Heather seem[s] like, ‘You don’t have the ability to tell the truth" — making Heather suspect #1.

Following a day in the city, which included Pepsi’s “sugar daddy vibes,” milk tea, and The Real Housewives of New York City’s Leah McSweeney’s collapse at a retail store, the ladies ventured for lunch (sans Leah). There, the investigation began with detective Gizelle, determined to learn who stole the missing tequila.

She told the other ladies, including Miami Housewife Marysol Patton and Potomac Housewife Candiace Dillard Bassett, that it took three weeks for someone to source the tequila for her.

“It’s a bottle that you can buy at any liquor store anywhere in America,” Heather told producers. “It’s a tchotchke; what’s going on?”

Gizelle told the group she eliminated Porsha but eyed Heather as the prime suspect, for which Heather later said she was “secretly thrilled.”

Candiace was suspect #2 because, according to Gizelle, “I know you loved the bottle.”

Marysol was suspect #3 for commenting on the bottle the previous night, claiming she had “so many minis” of the tequila.

“Because we are friends, and we’re all getting to know each other, I would think if you took it, or you took it, or you took it, just admit it now,” Gizelle said to her suspects. “Give me my bottle. I want my bottle.”

Gizelle wanted permission to search the women’s rooms once they returned to Phuket’s luxurious Villa Aye. All, but Candiace, agreed to Gizelle’s request, moving Candiace up to the top of the suspect list, even though Candiace firmly denied it.

During lunch, Candiace also suggested Gizelle let Villa Aye’s house staff and RHUGT producers search the rooms while they were away from the resort.

But when they got back, Whitney then came under suspicion as she ran into the house upon their return, claiming she had to use the restroom… or did she want to move the bottle before the rooms were searched?

Back at Villa Aye, Gizelle’s ongoing investigation erupted into a fight between Candiace and Gizelle, the latter of whom brought producers into the argument to help look in Candiace’s room. However, Candiace walked back on permitting a search of her room, barring Gizelle in particular.

“Why are you so pressed about this one bottle of liquor?” asked Candiace. “I don’t know if it’s proof that Gizelle needs a man or a hobby, ‘cuz this is just indicative of someone who’s crying out for help, and unfortunately, I don’t have it to give.”

Speaking of crying, the argument between the ladies was enough for Pepsi to curl up on the floor in distress.

“Right now, I don’t see any solution,” an emotional Pepsi said in the confessional. “I don’t like them to have rude conversation.”

Who Really Stole Gizelle's Tequila? The Answer, Revealed

The epic finale of who stole Gizelle’s tequila wasn’t exactly solved in the season’s final episode, which aired Thursday, April 20, but it did have an epic conclusion, thanks to Pepsi (as if we didn’t love him enough).

Pepsi arrived in style when crossing the waterways on a boat to meet the women at the nighttime Loy Krathong festival, calling each ‘Wife by name. With torches burning against a beautiful backdrop of palms and stars, Pepsi revealed an identical bottle of Gizelle’s prized tequila, bringing it overhead as the boat approached the cheering women.

Gizelle said she was about to cry, though it wasn’t the same bottle she believed was stolen. She found it “extremely touching” to see the lengths Pepsi went through to ensure the women’s happiness.

“After you left the house, I’m searching all around the island just for you,” said Pepsi as he presented the bottle. “And for peace for everyone.”

All the ladies agreed Pepsi went above and beyond throughout their week-long stay. 

Though Pepsi couldn’t say who stole Gizelle’s bottle, it was revealed during RHUGT’s closing credits that several of the ‘Wives were in on it, including Candiace and Leah — the former giving an evil laugh for producers while raising the bottle.

Another closing scene showed cousins Heather and Whitney — shortly before their last night at the Loy Krathong event — sneaking off to take a shot from Gizelle’s bottle before dinner.

“They never checked the outdoor shower,” Whitney said.

It turns our many of the 'Wives on the trip were in on taking the bottle, seemingly as a joke.

Gizelle would leave Thailand, never knowing who stole the tequila, but we wonder what she’ll think once seeing the final episode.
