Gizelle Bryant is getting some major advice from her mom after introducing her children to her then-boyfriend Sherman Douglas.

During the Sunday, July 8 episode, Bryant’s daughters Adore, Angel and Grace go wash up before their meal, giving Bryant and her mom Joanne Graves some time to chat.

At around the 3:29 mark, Bryant tells Graves she and Douglas broke up because he can’t communicate.

“I feel bad for the girls a little bit,” Bryant says. “But they’re resilient.”

After her daughters come back, the RHOP star tells her daughters that when things like breakups happen, “you redirect.”

“In this intermission, take your time,” Graves tells her celebrity daughter. “There’s no rush to meet somebody new.”

That’s advice Bryant, who last month was reported to be casually dating someone new, can get behind.

“Mom’s [sic] always give the BEST advice. #RHOP.”

She also agreed about the difficulty of her children being just as disappointed as she is in the breakup.

Bryant was dating Douglas, a former NBA player, for a year and a half. She’s previously discussed trying to attend counseling to mend their relationship, but according to her, Sheman wasn’t working as hard as she was to save it.

“Sherman and I have huge communication issues, OK? So we agreed we’re going to counseling, we’re gonna make things better, I love you so much, yada, yada, yada. So I call him when I was coming over here, and he said, ‘I need another perspective to see whether or not we should even be in this relationship,'” she said on the show in June. “I am here to try to fight to make this relationship work, and for him to not even try to meet me halfway makes me feel like I’m not even worth fighting for.”

While they were a couple, she introduced him to her three girls. But many online felt she should have slowed down on making such an introduction.

“Why women love bringing ‘boyfriends’ around their children so damn early? Now you [gotta] explain why Tom, Ron, and Mike ain’t coming around no damn more. #Rhop.”

“Just plain dumb‼#Sheoldenoughtoknowbetter.”

“That’s why you shouldn’t introduce men to your kids so quickly.”

“She thought she had that man wrapped around her fingers‼#Wrong.”
