Another media outlet has taken issue with Dr. Jamal Bryant, the pastor of the Empowerment Temple in Baltimore, Maryland, as well as Civil Rights Activist appearing on the Real Housewives of Potomac with ex-wife Gizelle Bryant. I see nothing wrong with this. Actually, I enjoyed watching the interaction the pastor, his ex-wife and children had.
So the other media outlet had this to say:
When you are arguably one of the best preachers in America, and you are on the blasphemous, foolish, x-rated Real Housewives of the Potomac, playing second fiddle to your ex-wife who disses you by saying, ‘I don’t want to get back with Jamal. If I wanted to get back with Jamal, he’d be sitting right here.’
The saddest part of this is that Jamal and Gizelle’s dear, sweet daughters have to be a part of this garbage.
Maybe Jamal Bryant needs to do like L.A. Reid and Lionel Richie, who told their wives they didn’t want to be a part of Real Housewives of New York or the Real Housewives of Hollywood.
Fashion & Style reports:
Gizelle is staying divorced.
On the premiere of “RHOP,” Gizelle opened up about her ex-husband. Gizelle was previously married to well known pastor/activist Jamal Bryant, but they got divorced, after Jamal cheated on her.
During the new episode, Jamal will sit down with Gizelle and their daughters, but that does not mean Gizelle wants to get back together with him any time soon.
“I don’t want to get back with Jamal,” Gizelle revealed. “If I wanted to get back with Jamal, he’d be sitting right here.”
So here’s my take, yes Gizelle did say she did not want to get back with her ex-husband, but is that a bad thing to say? What’s the big deal with that?
On Sunday’s episode, Gizelle Bryant, along with their daughters met Jamal Bryant at an outside eatery, where they discussed, seeing Jamal on TV marching for justice for Freddie Gray. The ladies talked about how proud they were of him, Gizelle even drunk out of the same glass as her ex-husband. The children laughed, and it was a very nice family outing. It was obvious to me that this family has taken on a different dynamic, but they are STILL family nonetheless. Gizelle even says that during the confessional. “Jamal is my family”…. The single mother of three also told the Daily Dish that they try to do things together as a family:
“It’s a process, but I am always open to communicate with him as it relates to the kids. The kids are with me the majority of the time, so he trusts me enough with the kids that I’m always going to think of them first. He and I have a great line of communication,” Gizelle said. “And we try to do a lot of things together. Like, we’ll go to dinners together as a family. Even over Christmas holiday, we took a little vacation together. If we can get it done as it relates to the kids and just us spending as much time together as a family, we do it. I feel like it’s the best thing for the kids, and the kids love to have their mommy and their daddy there with them.”
Now about the part that pastor Bryant is playing second fiddle to his wife…. I totally disagree, I believe he enjoys seeing Gizelle find her life after divorce, and I also believe he is cheering her on every step of the way.
Just my two cents…I would love to hear yours
