Gizelle Bryant doesn’t buy the story Juan Dixon is selling in regard to his interaction with another woman.

After Robyn Dixon confirmed the two were in touch, but insisted nothing sexual happened between them, the Real Housewives of Potomac cast member appeared on Watch What Happens Live, where she reacted to his story, addressed her legal drama with Eminem, dished on Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip, and more.

“I think that [Juan’s] story to Robyn is hard to believe,” Gizelle admitted on the March 26 episode of WWHL after first saying “no” when asked if she believes him.

Although Gizelle has faced backlash for not coming forward with Juan’s alleged infidelity as other members of the RHOP cast faced cheating allegations amid season seven, she insisted to Andy Cohen that she confronted her friend with tough questions about Juan.

“It was kinda like the conversation I had with her,” she explained after Andy referenced his one-on-one with Robyn at the reunion.

Following the seventh season, as he faced numerous cheating rumors, Juan was fired from his coaching job at Coppin State University, which Gizelle said “was a blow and it was a shock” to his family.

Also speaking of the reunion, Gizelle responded to a question about whether she and Chris Bassett were in a better place than before the taping.

“I have nothing more to say about that subject or him,” she replied.

As for Eminem’s opposition to her and Robyn’s attempt to trademark “Reasonably Shady,” Gizelle explained, “He says that people will confuse, when they look for Reasonably Shady, they’ll get confused and think they’re looking for Eminem.”

Then, when fellow guest Porsha Williams asked, “So they’re still searching for Eminem,” Gizelle threw shade.

“Who’s searching for Eminem? I don’t know. No shade, but shade,” Gizelle confirmed. “We’re still in talks. Lawyers are going back and forth but we’re persevering.”

Although Mia Thornton and friend Jacqueline Blake suffered a falling out amid filming on season seven, Gizelle said they are on the “path forward.”

“They are mending things as we speak,” she revealed.

And when Andy asked if the RHOP reunion hindered any progress she and Candiace Dillard-Bassett made in Thailand amid filming on RHUGT season three, Gizelle shared that things between her and Candiace were already “over.”

“When we ended [RHOP], we were fine. We had hashed out the whole everything. But then she decided to get on Twitter and act a fool so then we got to Thailand and she brought it up again and I was extremely confused because we had already hashed it,” Gizelle recalled, shading Candiace’s “Drive Back” performance with the Lady Boys of Thailand as a five out of 10 and claiming she was “lip-synching.”

During another moment of WWHL, Gizelle was asked to name a housewife who she wouldn’t want to have her home address.

“[Karen Huger] but she already has it … [Candiace] got it too. Brandi Glanville. I have [met her] and we were fine but then she said I was a b-tch and I don’t know why,” Gizelle explained. “I’m nice all the time.”

As the episode continued, Gizelle said the most embarrassing thing she’s ever asked a personal assistant or production assistant to do for her was get her “deodorant and concealer in Thailand” and explained why she chose not to react to Candiace’s reunion comment about her uterus.

“Because it was Candiace and nobody cares what she has to say,” Gizelle stated.

Also on the episode, Gizelle said her alleged boyfriend Jason Cameron is “great” and confirmed Ashley Darby‘s split from Luke Gulbranson hasn’t given her pause about Jason.

“No. And I feel like there’s maybe home for Ashley and Luke one day. We’ll see,” she added.

No word yet on when production will begin on The Real Housewives of Potomac season eight.
