Hey ya'll, On this week's episode we were lucky enough to have Gabrielle Kniery from Winter House but if you didn't know she was also on America's Next Top Model.
Here are some highlights:
•She spoke about how she is from St. Louis, Missouri and how a random coincidence got her to tryout for America's Next Top Model. She was persuaded by one of her good friends who was also auditioning to be on. Gabby auditioned and thought that she didn't make the second cut due to the fact that they didn't call her number. She was ready to leave and put this all behind her until the PA stopped her from going down the elevator. He said "Is number 69 here? You're actually the only girl that we wanted," And it took off from there!
•She also comments about the criticism that Tyra Bank received for her tactics on the show and expresses how grateful she is to have had the opportunity. Gabby says she will never bite the hand that has fed her and would never turn on a Black woman who gave so many women a great opportunity to be on the show.
•She also talked about her time at Winter House, Yes she did like Luke... however the argument was more about her friendship with Julia and how Julia had constantly tried things like that before, she was over it. She also felt isolated during that time because she didn't know anyone but Julia and partially Andrea whom she had met through Julia.
•Which brought her to talk about what they didn't show.. which is why we didn't get to know her that well.
•She said that her and the rest of the Winter House crew went Dog Sledding and that was a fun event that she wished they would have shown. Gabby also stated that she did confessionals speaking about the same thing that Ciara and Mya spoke about but Bravo did not include that footage.
•Gabby also spilled the tea on that moment from the trailer where it was insinuated that Kyle was flirting with her. She said it was no big deal and that Kyle was just saying she had the best ass in the house. Her and Kyle actually built a genuine friendship and it was nothing more than that.
•Speaking of Kyle, Gabby says that he was one of the only ones who truly tried to get to know her. As far as who she is still in contact with, she said that Paige was there when she had an injury because she lived close to her. She does text a few of them to check in from time to time and thinks that they are genuinely good people.
•She said that she was not asked back but she would love to be invited to Summer House so people can actually get to know her because she is not this introverted person that was portrayed on the show. She would like viewers to see her real personality.
•She said that although her conversation may not have made it on Winter House she was so proud and felt so seen when Ciara and Mya had their conversation. She loved the way the house reacted to it and Gabby is glad that Bravo decided to spotlight that.
•Although she doesn't have a lot of time to watch TV because she has been working on so many amazing projects such as the Dark & Lovely 50th Anniversary photoshoot, she enjoys dabbling in Summer House and some of the shows that come on NBC/ FOX. She loves. Dramas.
•Gabby also spilled the tea about her upcoming podcast called "The Gift Of Gab." The podcast will be a platform for her to tell inspirational stories that uplift and motivate listeners, she hopes that listeners can gain something from it.
In an exclusive Patreon episode which you can access starting at $5 a month, Gabby gives us her beauty secrets. We also talk about Euphoria and Kaya and Gabby connected on both having Sickle Cell. It was a pleasure having Gabby on our podcast, you can tell that she is a genuine kind hearted person and her spirit shines bright! This was a much needed conversation and we are so excited for all of you to hear it.

We are hoping that you all have seen Bravo TV’s new show Kandi & The Gang, or as we would like to call it “A spin-off done right.” The first episode premiered on Sunday March, 6th, 2022 and we have been promoting this show since Bravo first released the trailer. We were lucky enough to see the first episode a week early and we also got a chance to chat with two of the cast members (Shawndreca and Dom’Unique), who happen to be our favorites!
•Shawndreca spills what really went on between her and Philip before their heated argument on the show. She says that she felt disrespected and hopes that viewers get more of an insight on why she was so upset. Shawndreca also wishes that things could’ve been different because she would like to a have healthy work environment with everyone.
•After that Dom’Unique goes on to explain how she got a spot working at OLG. She says that she put together a Grade: A resume and was blessed enough to get a position working at the restaurant. She also goes into detail about her dance career, Can you say Black Excellence?! Dom’Unique has danced for artists like (City Girls, Megan Thee Stallion, and Trina) she also got a chance to perform at the BET Hip-Hop Awards with Megan Thee Stallion.
•Towards the end of the pod we ask these two ladies for OLG menu recommendations.. Y’all know we like to eat! Shawndreka recommended the Cornbread, OLG Signature Wings, Cajun Fries, and the French Toast & Chicken.. Dom’Unique recommended the Fish Dinner, Lamb Chops, washed down with one of their signature drinks called “The Housewife.” As soon as we head over to the restaurant we will release an official review in our community.
This was a great interview and it was a pleasure having these beautiful ladies.

Our last pot stirrer was:

Kaya’s answer was: Ashley Darby VS. Whitney Rose
Aaron’s answer was: Lisa Barlow VS. Karen Huger
As you can see I chose violence with my answer and I have no regrets LOL. Anyway, if you are reading this what Bravolebrities would you like to see go toe to toe? We look forward to having these chaotic conversations with you all!

UPDATE SHE RELEASED A STATEMENT TO BRAVO:
Almost eight years ago, when Michael and I said ‘I do,’ we anticipated sharing every single day together from that moment forward. Unfortunately, that is not our current reality. We have decided to separate. We are aware that there will be many speculative views as to why we have made this decision. People will be quick to assume that the causes were too much intrusion by reality TV into the most personal parts of our lives, age gap issues, cultural problems, or child-rearing differences. Pieces of all these may have affected our pure love for each other, but no one reason is the root cause of our mutual decision to go our separate ways," she said. "We are now both at very different stages in our lives and have different goals for our futures. We both want the other to achieve true happiness and fulfillment and feel that we cannot do this together."
Her statement continued, "While our romantic bond is broken, we will always love and respect each other. We also know that true happiness can only be achieved by continuing to work together and putting our hearts and souls into raising our two beautiful boys, Dean and Dylan. They will always feel loved and supported, for they were truly created out of love. As this is a personal matter for us, we appreciate everyone who has been a part of our journey and ask for your continued support by respecting us as we go through this emotional situation.”
ASHLEY HIVE RISE UP THE TIME HAS COME
JUST WEEKS AFTER MICHAEL WAS ACCUSED OF CHEATING AGAIN (SOMETHING ASHLEY DENIED) IT HAS BEEN REPORTED SHE HAS FILED FOR SEPARATION FROM THAT MAN!
According to b scott: We here at lovebscott.com can exclusively confirm that ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac’star Ashley Darby has filed for legal separation from husband Michael Darby.
A source close to the couple tells lovebscott.com that Ashley filed for legal separation in Virginia as a precursor to divorce.
I THINK WE ALL SAW THIS COMING BUT OMG???
I think anyone who has a podcast or listens to a podcast thinks ‘Wow, if ___ was on one day — that would be an amazing conversation!”
If you were able to get any Bravolebrity to talk with us, who would you want to hear on our show?
We have been blessed enough to speak with some of our favorites like Ashley Darby, Lisa Barlow, Peter Madrigal and Gabrielle Kniery!
We have to put out there who we want to eventually be a guest. *Speaking it into existence*
The top two would obviously be Queen Mother Nene Leakes and Andy Cohen. The rest is in no particular order.
Housewives: Wendy, Gizelle, Robyn, Kandi, Porsha, Phaedra, Sheree, Garcelle, Crystal, Sutton, Noella, Heather D, Jen Shah, Eboni, Dorinda, Sonja Dolores, Melissa, Guerdy, Larsa, Alexia.
Non-Housewives: Literally all the Summer House cast, Quad, Heavenly, GG, Reza, Literally all the Family Karma cast, Leva, Venita, Lala, Katie, Ariana, The Toms, and Scheana
I’m sure I left a few out but tell me who you want to hear us speak to?
I ordered the cutest mugs from Bravo While Black on Instagram and I can’t wait to get them for my Bravo loving friends. They’re high quality and I love the size of the glass mug — so cozy. Highly recommend!!
I want to thank you all again for joining me for the Summer House live chat, I had a blast!
This is not the BWB podcast but I want to leave you all with a pot stirrer..
:Who is your favorite Summer House pairing?
I would say couple but most of them can't stay in a relationship to save their life.. Mine would be Paige and Andrea. I would say Ciara and Austen but after this episode I don't want that for Ciara. I look forward to seeing your answers!
So we've been hearing for months that Karen Huger from Bravo TV's "RHOP" is getting her own spinoff and Bravo decided to finally bless us with the trailer as well as the release date. "Karen's Grand Dame Reunion" will be a two part spinoff and it will premiere on Sunday, April 17 at 8/7c.
I've been hearing a lot of mixed reviews, some people are looking forward to watching and others could care less... We are personally excited because Karen is a top tier housewife in our eyes. I would love to see the dynamic between her and her family, I feel like we don't really don't get a chance to see much of that. If you really think about it the only Housewife of Potomac that shows their family on a consistent basis is Ashley Thee Darby.. Prove me wrong lol.
With all that being said I have a few questions for you all..
•Will you be watching Karen's Grand Dame Reunion?
•Do you think that Karen's spinoff should be longer than two parts?
• Who is another housewife or Bravolebrity that you would like to see get their own spinoff? If you are one of those people that hate spinoffs please explain why below.
Happy Saturday everyone!
Will Smith had his name in literally almost every media blog that you can think of due to the fact that he publicly slapped Chris Rock at The Oscars. Some people say that he was just defending his wife, and some say that he was completely out of line and deserves to be punished.. but we're not here to talk about all of that.
What we want to know is what Bravo brawl would you compare to this slap?
Kaya said that she would compare it to Porsha's fight with Kenya on the season 6 reunion of RHOA..
I would personally compare it to the fight that Mariah and Toya had on season 1 of Married To Medicine..
We look forward to seeing what your responses are!
