RHOP Season 7 aired a brand new episode on Sunday, October 16, 2022, at 8 pm ET on Bravo. The one-hour episode featured cast members navigating personal relationships, rumors and past issues while trying to hash out their differences. The ladies also welcomed former cast member Katie Rost as she made an appearance this season.

On this week's episode of RHOP, Gizelle revealed that Candiace's husband Chris sent her a DM and spoke to her privately at the previous season's reunion. She claimed that it made her "uncomfortable." She also hinted that he might potentially be cheating on his wife.

Fans, however, didn't believe the narrative and slammed Gizelle. One tweeted:

I never thought I'd say this but I don't think Chris did anything wrong by "approaching" and talking to Gizelle at the reunion🤨 So Gizelle get over yourself🙄 #RHOP

RHOP premiered its seventh season on October 9, 2022, and gave viewers a glimpse into the cast's life. Loyal fans of the show have been following their journey for a long time and are now eager to see what happens in the upcoming weeks. The trailer has already teased a lot of drama this season and it's only a matter of time before things gear up.

The official synopsis of the show reads:

"Season 7 finds the cast facing new drama, new dynamics in their personal lives and friendships, major life changes, and plenty of shade. There’s also a cast trip that brings some tensions and questions to the surface."

Gizelle talks about her conversation with Chris on RHOP

On tonight's episode of RHOP, Robyn met up with Gizelle to discuss several important issues, including the latter's problem with Mia's health scare, and Ashley buying a house with her husband despite the fact that she might be divorcing him soon.

The conversation soon shifted to Candiace's husband Chris Bassett sending Ashley a DM on Instagram. The latter had admitted to Robyn that the message made her uncomfortable. Reflecting upon the incident, in an RHOP confessional, Ashley said:

"Whether Chris went out of his way to send me a specific DM, or it was just casually responding to one of my Instagram stories, it's something that feels off."

While recounting the incident to Gizelle, Robyn said that she felt the DM wasn't really an issue, as she perceived it to be Chris' desire to "cultivate friendship."

Gizelle, however, was of the opinion that Chris was in the wrong. She then brought up her own issue with Chris, revealing that he often slides into her DMs. While she admitted that their interaction is friendly, she also said that she wasn't comfortable with it. When asked about the reason behind her feelings, Gizelle opened up about her experience with Chris at the reunion for the last season of RHOP.

She revealed that Chris had wanted to talk to her personally following the end of the previous season's reunion. They had gone to her room, but her glam team wasn't present there, which meant that it was only the two of them - a situation that made her uncomfortable. Gizelle further stated that he kept complaining about his wife Candiace, which felt like a "red flag":

"All I know was, it was not good for me....He was very drunk..that makes it even worse. I don't want to be in a closed room with a married man. I am a woman who had a husband cheat on her. I don't want to be put in the optics of cheating. I don't wanna have anything to do with it."

Although Robyn maintained that she knew Chris hadn't said anything inappropriate, Gizelle felt like Chris was trying to make something out of the incident, hinting at him possibly cheating on his wife.

Do ya’ll think Giselle is making a big deal out of the whole Chris thing ? #RHOP
Gizelle has been married and then dating Jamal and she has the indecency to say that Chris makes her feel uncomfortable? #RHOP
If Chris was gone cheat it would prob be w/ an employee at his job, not no damn Ashley or Gizelle. They got too much dip on their chip. #RHOP
I can guarantee that Chris does NOT want Gizelle #RHOP
Gizelle why would Chris push up on you at the reunion when it's like a thousand people around. This story don't make no sense boo boo #RHOP
Chris should be careful with this friend group even if it’s innocent people like Giselle thrive on messiness. #rhop
Out of all people why would Chris pick you to cheat with Gizelle you were one of the ones last season calling him broke be for real #RHOP
