Gizelle Bryant: Candiace Just Needs to Take a Xanax and Breathe
"Candiace doesn’t listen to her Momma so she damn sure isn’t going to listen to me."
Bravotv.com: It was so fun watching you and your mother interact. It seems like you share such a close bond. Are you surprised how similar you both are?
Gizelle Bryant: My Mother and I don’t take anything too seriously. We both understand that life is short so there is no need to sweat the small stuff. She is a funny lady and I enjoy when she comes to hang out with me and the girls.
GB: Hearing a black woman refer to another black woman with a slave connotation really angered me. We had just come from touring the Whitney Plantation and seeing how my ancestors were treated. The last thing I thought I would hear Candiace say was that Monique referred to Katie as Amistad, a movie about SLAVERY. Horrible. Deplorable. Disgusting. As a woman, there are some things you just don’t say about another woman and Monique clearly said it. She was wronger than wrong for that comment, but I’m not shocked.
Bravotv.com: Your try to give Candiace advice when it comes to Ashley and tell her to try giving her the benefit of the doubt when it comes to her intentions on getting pregnant -- do you think you're getting through to Candiace?
GB: Candiace screams that for years Ashley has been in everyone’s business when that is exactly what Candiace is doing to Ashley. Candiace doesn’t listen to her Momma so she damn sure isn’t going to listen to me. When it comes to Ashley, Candiace just needs to take a Xanax and breathe.
