AceShowbiz - It's been years since Phaedra Parks was rumored to be cheating on then-husband Apollo Nida with someone named Mr. Chocolate, but the topic is still hot enough to be discussed in public. Recently, Andy Cohen brought it up when Gizelle Bryant showed up on "Watch What Happens Live", and she took that chance to shade "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" alum.
In the episode, Andy asked Gizelle about her reaction to rumors that her ex-husband, Jamal H. Bryant, was the Mr. Chocolate that Phaedra had an affair with. "The Real Housewives of Potomac" beauty admitted to finding the rumors hilarious, and that she didn't have any problem with that. She also noted that she didn't really know the truth because Phaedra and Jamal gave contradicting responses. While the former Bravo star allegedly admitted it to her friends, Jamal denied it.
When asked whether or not she would be upset if she knew that they really dated, Gizelle calmly answered, "Not at all," before calling Phaedra "not important." Keke Palmer, who appeared as a guest alongside the TV personality, looked genuinely surprised when hearing her remarks.
Phaedra's Mr. Chocolate drama was long featured on "RHOA", with Kandi Burruss investigating the identity of the guy for two whole seasons. Jamal himself was rumored to be Phaedra's side dude back in 2017, following a reunion special episode in which Phaedra confessed to talking and texting with her male friend before Apollo went to jail.
Meanwhile, Gizelle and Jamal had divorced for twelve years after getting married in 2002. However, the star has since revealed in an episode of "RHOP" that they have started dating again. "I am enjoying the pursuit and I am open. There's nobody who knows me like that man," she said, before saying that she had forgiven Jamal for cheating on her during their marriage.
"I look back and I just feel like, nobody is what their mistakes are," Gizelle noted. "I feel like he's a different person. I'm a different person. So we're baby stepping, but we're moving in a direction that we want to move into. And I do love when we're all together as a family."
The couple shares three daughters, Grace (14) and twins Angel and Adore (13).
