Bravotv.com: Tell us about telling your mother and girls about Sherman, were you worried about this?
Gizelle Bryant: My Mom and my girls roll with whatever I do, that is the beauty of having family that loves you. No matter what happens they always have my back and support any and every decision I make.
Bravotv.com: What did you think about Monique Samuels’s offer of the suite? (Are you glad you got it?)
GB: There isn't ever much sleeping that happens on these trips so, to be honest, I really didn't care about the room. But, since it was offered I was sure going to take it. Plus,Robyn Dixon knows my room is her room and her room is my room so it really didn't matter who got it.
Bravotv.com: Why didn’t you like the Monique and Charrisse upgraded – what do you think about her reasoning? Could this be the beginning of a friendship between you two?
GB: Monique asked me to come on the trip so that I could see a "better side" of her. However, at the first opportunity to separate herself she jumped at it. In the true fashion of a girls trip, we travel TOGETHER. ALL of us were asked if we wanted to upgrade and we all so no so that we could stay together, so yep, a little shady. Monique is always going to have an excuse for her behavior and it typically comes with tears. Nope, not buying it.
Bravotv.com: Did you think it was a slight against Monique to not go on her planned activities? Did you expect it to be such a big deal – what do you think of her and the other ladies’ reactions?
GB: I knew that there was a time frame associated with Monique's oil tour (that I had no desire to do) and I didn't want them to miss their window waiting on Robyn. By the way, Robyn is ALWAYS late, but even if she wasn't I didn't want to go smell oils in the South of France. Can't you do that at the mall on any given Saturday at Bath & Body Works?
Bravotv.com: Tell us about your confrontation with Karen Huger the night before over the perfume and your business partners and then the next day bringing up Ray and Erika Liles. What were you thinking when this all went down?
GB: Karen is the Queen of throwing shade and never really looks in the mirror. If I were her and I'm trying to get a perfume line off the ground, I would NEVER question or try to throw shade at ME. I'm someone who is successful and who is about her business. When I woke the next morning it hit me why Karen would even bring up my business partners. Karen knows that everything I said in the lobby is true and I will just leave it there in the lobby.
