The Real Housewives of Potomac - Season 4

September 9 is Gizelle Bryant’s birthday.

I enjoy watching Gizelle Bryant on the “Real Housewives of Potomac.” In fact, her relationship with Robyn Dixon appears to be one of the most genuine friendships on any of the “Housewives” shows. Watching the two women tell each other what they really think approximates actual reality in my opinion — something that rarely happens on so-called reality shows.

The one thing about Gizelle that defines her as a textbook Virgo is how “messy” she is despite being born under the most-orderly, directorial sign of the zodiac. Virgo housewives seem to like to direct the shows that they are on. In fact, the “Real Housewives” franchise has recently washed their hands clean of Lisa Vanderpump after another season of her trying to call the shots behind the scenes of the “Beverly Hills.”

Yes, Lisa Vanderpump was messy. She was messy with the whole Munchausen episode. She was messy with Eileen Davidson and her questions about Eileen’s marriage. She was messy with Puppygate. She continuously attempted to write the scripts and direct the action on “RHOBH,” and it became exasperating for her co-stars. I know that she has her fans who believe that she can do no wrong, but in the words of Maya Angelou, “When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.”

Gizelle does the same thing on “Potomac,” but without the finesse of Lisa Vanderpump. For that reason, she just makes a mess of everything — and that’s what makes her such a delight to watch! I don’t have a time of birth for Gizelle, but if she was born before about 4:00 PM, she has a Sagittarius moon. That makes sense to me because she does stir the pot like many of the housewives who have Sagittarius for a sun sign, including her co-star Candiace Dillard and the messiest housewife of all, Dorinda Medley of “New York.” Sagittarius housewives scream in your face one minute, and then hug it out the next. I can’t imagine that she would put up with Karen Huger’s bullshit for a minute if she had a Capricorn moon. That planetary position would endow Gizelle with a more unforgiving personality. Also, the Capricorn influence would probably make Gizelle better at covering up her tracks.

Nevertheless, I adore Gizelle and her messy antics. The “RHOP” reunion starts in a week, and it looks like it’s going to be extra messy this season with Michael Darby trying to explain why he is always at the center of the drama. I wonder what sign he is? Taurus, perhaps. I know plenty of Taurus natives with an oral fixation . . .
