Meet Gizelle from Bravo's The Real Housewives of Potomac

Gizelle is the breakout star of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Potomac. #RHOP follows the lives of six women as they navigate the social scene in this little gem of a community, Potomac, Maryland. Just up the river from our nation's capital, you find Gizelle's community of old-line, wealthy African-American families who have historically broken racial barriers to provide a life of privilege for their children.
 
Gizelle is a vibrant socialite and resident of the Potomac area who effortlessly manages her jam-packed calendar as a single mother of three daughters, Grace and twins Angel and Adore. She was raised by very prominent and powerful parents who set the tone for her path in their work
in government and philanthropy. After graduating from Hampton University, she married her now ex-husband, megachurch pastor/activist Jamal Bryant, and lived in Baltimore for seven years.
 
Gizelle keeps herself busy with multiple projects. She consults the City of Birmingham, Alabama on North Birmingham, an area that has been designated an EPA Superfund site. She is philanthropic and raises money for a number of local charities and is always willing to serve her
community.
 
Gizelle is building a beauty brand, EveryHue Beauty.  EveryHue Beauty will address the needs of all modern women while paying close attention to women of color, a category where she sees tremendous gaps. The first product will be an emollient-based luxury product that will perfectly adjust and enhance every skin tone. EveryHue Beauty will offer an affordable, beautiful color wheel of shades for all women and double down on warmer shades. The brand will launch mid-summer 2016.
 
Gizelle maintains her status as a sophisticated woman in the Potomac social scene and with her outspoken, no-nonsense demeanor; she is currently embracing a new chapter as she learns to date again and adjusts to single life.

Pop Recording Artist Rayvon Owen

For as long as he can remember, pop/soul singer Rayvon Owen has dreamed of a life dedicated to music. Born to be on stage, the Richmond, VA., native began his music career at a very young age – singing in choirs, touring with gospel musicians and performing in local musicals. Influenced by legendary artists such as Lionel Richie, John Legend, Katy Perry and Stevie Wonder, Rayvon has developed his own voice as a powerful performer and reflective songwriter.

By the age of 18, he relocated to Nashville, TN., to study Commercial Music at Belmont University. While in Music City, he pursued a performance career by writing with local musicians and performing at local events, venues, clubs and showcases. Shortly after graduation, Rayvon made his way from Nashville to Los Angeles, CA., where he continued to write and craft his sound. In 2014, he released his debut EP, “Cycles,” which includes the hit single “Sweatshirt.” In the past year, Rayvon took his talent on the road – performing at over 60 colleges across the United States.
Already having a fan base across the U.S., he became a household name and “Twitter Save” champion as a Top 4 finalist on season 14 of “American Idol.” While on “Idol,” Rayvon performed with the likes of Jamie Foxx, Rickey Martin, Boy George and many others. Receiving rave reviews from major outlets, including People Magazine, USA Today and Billboard, he is noted, not only for his star quality and beautiful vocal tone, but for his ability to bring authenticity and emotion to his performances.

Following his journey on “American Idol” and performing on the 38-city "American Idols LIVE!" tour this past summer, Rayvon shares his new creative direction and collaborative spirit with the release of “Air EP.” Recently receiving the “Rising Star” award at the L.A. Music Awards, Rayvon wants to continue to entertain his listeners and create an immersive and memorable experience that leaves his audiences inspired.
