Gizelle Bryant Gives an Update on Her Home Renovation: "Hotel Gizelle Is Not Done"
"It's gonna be amazing one day...just not today," The Real Housewives of Potomac cast member said.
"Hotel Gizelle is not done. The West Wing is, but my entryway, it's not done," Gizelle explained on the show's September 26 episode. "It's gonna be amazing one day, my beautiful chandelier in the middle, black and white floors. Just not today."
As she prepared to host a party at her abode, she didn't see the ongoing construction as an obstacle. "This whole renovation has taken way longer than I thought, but it's OK," she said. "I can still have an event at my house." With that, she and Robyn Dixon put together a tented event outside of the house to celebrate their new podcast.
Gizelle was thrilled with the party setup, but as her other castmates arrived and saw her house, they expressed very mixed feelings. "Oh my god Look at the addition! Oh, I love it!" Ashley Darby said, adding in an interview, "Gizelle has made a lot of progress on her house, I will say. I can see the West Wing now. [It] wasn't there before. But even still, there's a long way to go."
In a separate interview, Mia Thornton quipped, "Where am I? This is not hotel Gizelle, OK? This is motel Gizelle." However, when she greeted Gizelle, she offered a compliment: "This is cute, you brought the living room outside."
Wendy Osefo, meanwhile, was "so confused," asking herself, "Where's the rest of the house?"
No matter what her friends have to say about the home, Gizelle has made it clear that the only opinion that matters is her own. As she showed off the new West Wing to BravoTV.com, Gizelle declared, "I hope you like it, and I don't really care if you do, because I do. I love it."
