Gizelle Bryant Opens Up About Co-Parenting With Ex-Husband Jamal Bryant!

Gizelle Bryant opens up about how she and ex-husband, Pastor Jamal Bryant co-parent their three daughters. The Real Housewives of Potomac star reveals that she is getting used to long-distance co-parenting with her ex, who now lives in Atlanta.

“He’s really trying to make an effort to see the girls,” Bryant told ESSENCE. “In his mind because he is in Atlanta, he’s trying to do more and go above and beyond to make sure that he’s with them. Our relationship is better than it’s ever been.”

The Bravo reality star shared that she and her ex along with their children “just came back from a family vacation.”

“He and I have a great friendship and we still kind of rely on that as we go through our daily life,” she continued. “I mean, come on, we’ve been divorced 11 years. It’s been that long—it has. So now we know each other probably better than anyone else knows us, and that’s a beautiful thing. Regardless of what happens with us, he’s family no matter what.”

Bryant also spills the tea about her new book, My Word, which is “loosely based on my life when I was married.”

“It’s very much like a secret society. It’s very clique-ish. It’s very supportive, yet backstabbing; kind of like The Real Housewives of Potomac,” she told ESSENCE about the time she was a first lady. “It’s a fun read. It’s very salacious. It’s a page turner, but…after you finish reading My Word, you’re going to feel real good about yourself.”

Bryant said the real message of the book that she wants readers to walk away with is the idea that “we have to always empower ourselves and lift ourselves up.”

She continued, “I felt like when I got divorced that was kind of an unwritten rule of something I was not supposed to be doing, but I went ahead and did it anyway because I thought that was best for me.”

“You know, your life goes one way, you think, but then some turns happen,” Bryant added. “But you get through that.”
