When Andy Cohen asked Gizelle Bryant when he should cut his Juan Dixon Joke on The Bravos, that one Real Housewives of Potomac Star made it clear that she doesn’t approve of jokes about the cheating rumors.
“I didn’t like it,” Gizelle, 53, said exclusively Us weekly during BravoCon on Saturday, November 4th. “Full disclosure: I saw him first before he saw it [Robyn Dixon], and he asked me, should he make the joke or stop? And I said, “Stop it.” And he goes, “Yeah, definitely, brilliant.” Cut it! We will make it.’
During The Bravos – which filmed on Friday, November 3rd and aired on Sunday, November 5th – Andy, 55, joked that it was a good thing Bravo paid for hotel rooms so Juan, 45, didn’t have to do that. The joke caused a stir after Juan was at the center of cheating rumors when he paid for a woman’s hotel room.
However, Andy had a chance to speak to Robyn before the show. “And then he sees her and she goes, ‘Put it in!'” Gizelle revealed with a laugh.
“I can laugh at myself. I can laugh at situations,” said Robyn, 44 Us. “I know how ridiculous the situation sounds, and I can laugh about it and acknowledge it. And yes, when [Andy] was like, “There’s a joke I wanted to throw in.” … I thought, “Well, tell me.” And he told me. I thought, ‘Oh yeah, put it in.'”
Robyn has claimed that she believes Juan wasn’t having a full-blown affair. He claimed the woman lost her wallet and Juan had to pay for a hotel room for her, and Robyn claims she believes his explanation. So she had no problem laughing at Andy’s joke.
“I think that’s how I was raised. My father always told me that you have to be able to laugh at yourself. And that’s a situation that I’m literally sitting at home laughing about,” Robyn added. “This is the most absurd thing. And I don’t care what people think about the situation. I don’t care what they believe, so I don’t shy away from any of it.”
Robyn and Juan weren’t the only ones Andy called out during Bravos. The host couldn’t resist making a joke The Real Housewives of Orange County star Jennifer Pedrantiis the friend Ryan BoyajianSD-K images controversy. (In July, RHOC‘S Tamra Judge accused Ryan of sending her buddy Heather Amin a phallic photo. Jenn claimed her boyfriend accidentally sent the snap to four people, including Heather and his adult sons.)
“I sat right next to it Taylor [Armstrong] and the cameras start moving and Andy is up there talking and we thought that was it [going to be about]like everyone we were sitting around, and then Andy made the joke and I felt like it [the camera zoomed in on me] and it’s funny,” Jenn, 46, told us on the BravoCon red carpet. “I mean, honestly, if I can’t laugh about it at this point, then what the hell am I supposed to do? It’s funny.”
Jenn and Ryan, for their part, laugh all the way to the bank. After the scandal, they launched #DckPic merchandise.
