EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Potomac’s Robyn Dixon defends best friend Gizelle Bryant’s questionable style after the star was mocked by her castmates for having ‘skunk hair’
Gizelle Bryant’s questionable sense of style has been a hot topic among her Real Housewives of Potomac castmates and viewers of the show.
But her best friend and co-star Robyn Dixon has defended Gizelle’s sartorial chops and also accused some of their fellow Housewives of being less then stellar in the wardrobe department.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia this week, the 43-year-old said she’s happy to let Gizelle ‘do her own thing’ when it comes to fashion.

‘She’s a very confident woman and she likes what she likes, so if she were to ask me for advice I’d definitely give my honest opinion,’ she explained.
‘But she likes what she likes, so there’s no point really in telling her my opinion about something.’
Robyn then said that she found it interesting that some of her castmates, who have also had their own fashion faux pas, decided to single out Gizelle.
‘I was cracking up after it was Candiace [Dillard] and Karen [Huger] that were chiming in about Gizelle’s confessional look, and the ones that I saw that came out shortly after of them weren’t the greatest either,’ she said.

‘So I just feel like people need to be careful before attacking somebody. We shouldn’t throw stones because you never know when that same criticism will turned right back onto you,’ Robyn continued.
‘It was so comical to me, hilarious, when their pictures came out and everyone was like, “What a minute? They’re talking about Gizelle and they look like THAT?”‘
Robyn said that there’s plenty of drama in store for fans of RHOP, including a physical altercation between Mia Thornton and Wendy Osefo.
Candiace called Gizelle’s style ‘criminally offensive’ in a scathing subtweet last month

Some fans jumped to Gizelle’s defence, with one pointing out Candiace and Karen’s style
‘I think that this is gonna be one of those situations where people are gonna be split on where they find the fault,’ she said cryptically.
‘Both of them were wrong for their behaviour, but people will be split on whether Mia was justified in doing what she did,’ she added.
This season of the Real Housewives of Potomac sees Robyn and her ex-husband-turned-fiancé Juan Dixon attempt to navigate a prenup before walking down the aisle for the second time.

Meanwhile, Ashley Darby is dealing with a confusing separation from Australian husband Michael, while Candiace Dillard is freezing her eggs while trying to balance her budding music career and tumultuous marriage to Chris Bassett.
A dramatic season trailer also shows Mia hurling a drink at rival Wendy, while fan favourite Karen Huger loses her temper against old friend Charrisse Jackson-Jordan.
Outside of the show, Robyn is busy with her successful hat line Embellished and her hit podcast Reasonably Shady with Gizelle.
