Wedding Bells Again? Reality star Gizelle Bryant dating ex-husband Pastor Jamal Bryant
Article By Shelly Salters // EEW Magazine // Relationships
God is a restorer of relationships and it appears that He may be doing a work in the lives of the Bryant family.
Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant revealed that she and her ex-husband Jamal Bryant are dating following their previous divorce due to his infidelity.
The high-profile pair were married from 2002 to 2009 and have maintained a friendship and healthy co-parenting relationship since then. They share three daughters, Grace, Angel and Adore.
During the season 4 reunion of RHOP, Bryant, 49, broke the news that she and the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church leader are currently dating long distance. “I am enjoying the pursuit and I am open,” she told host Andy Cohen. “There’s nobody who knows me like that man.”
The former Mrs. Bryant, who has been in therapy to work through her issues, has, over time, learned to resolve her differences with the 48-year-old reverend and forgive him.
“I look back and I just feel like, nobody is what their mistakes are,” she said. “I feel like he’s a different person. I’m a different person. So we’re baby-stepping, but we’re moving in a direction that we want to move into. And I do love when we’re all together as a family.”
Though the repair of the fractured relationship is good news, Bryant admitted that it has been a bit puzzling for the couple’s children who were “a little confused” at first.
“They’ve never seen us together in that way,” she explained. “We got divorced 12 years ago.”
Though Ms. Bryant did not say for sure if they would remarry and she would become New Birth’s first lady, she did say, “I’m gonna be whatever the Lord brings into my life.”
On Instagram, the ex-wife-maybe-wife-to-be-again posted an image of the two walking together on the beach and captioned it, “He’s got my back!”
Perhaps, a better caption would be, “He got me back.”
Very sweet. Congrats to the happy couple.
