Gizelle Bryant Explains Why Charrisse Jackson Jordan Is Taking A ‘Back Seat’ This Season On RHOP!

Gizelle Bryant is sharing details about Charrisse Jackson Jordan's divorce from estranged husband Eddie Jordan and reveals why she's taken a "back seat" this season on The Real Housewives of Potomac.

"She's really going through a divorce now so she kinda felt like — or everyone felt like she needed to take a back seat and kinda concentrate on that," Gizelle Bryant told The Breakfast Club. "But she's still around. I love Charrisse."

Charrisse previously revealed to The Daily Dish podcast that Eddie did not want her to be on a reality show and that he would divorce her if she did one.

"When I told [Eddie], I said, 'They want me to do this reality show' — at the time we didn't know it was Housewives, we were thinking maybe it could be Housewives — and so he said, 'Well, if you do it, we'll probably get a divorce.'"

His extreme reaction took her aback and made really her take stock of their relationship. "It was not the answer I was expecting," she admitted. "So when he said it, I was devastated. Like I literally gave up my career twice because of his career."

A former NBA player turned coach, Eddie's frequent job changes had them moving all around the country.

"We moved to California, then New Jersey, Maryland, Philly, then back to Maryland, and now I say a few words, and you're going to say to me divorce if I do this? So it kind of put me in a different space of, 'Now I really want to do this.'"

Charrisse recently revealed that she's open to dating and has recently recorded a rap song about being back in the market. However, her main focus right now is her daughter as she is preparing to head to college.
