Gizelle Bryant, star of "The Real Housewives of Potomac," is sharing even more details about her failed marriage with ex-husband Jamal Bryant while the cameras aren't rolling. It comes days after the reality star confirmed that she and Jamal are no longer rekindling their relationship.

"I didn't have a prenup," she revealed on her new podcast, "Reasonably Shady." "It was a fight, but like I just said, we didn't have much, we grew it altogether."

"It was a fight over money and," Bryant added, "I will never, ever do that to myself again."

It's the main reason why later on in the episode, Bryant advocated for her listeners to protect themselves before walking down the aisle.

"Ladies, don't you ever get married - I don't care if you got $5 and he has $17 - don't you ever get married without a prenup because you do not know where this relationship is going financially and finances are important and you want to protect yourself. If, and when you get a divorce, you want to protect yourself," she said.

Gizelle Bryant also told her listeners that during her marriage she felt she was in Jamal's 'shadow'

Bryant recently announced that she split with her ex-husband turned new boyfriend Jamal, who's a pastor of a megachurch in Atlanta. The two, who have three daughters together, were married for seven years before divorcing in 2009 due to alleged infidelity. They later rekindled their relationship last year.

During "The Real Housewives of Potomac's" most recent season, Jamal appeared sparingly, which annoyed many cast members. At the season five reunion, former cast member Monique Samuels brought a binder full of supposed "receipts" that detailed Jamal's alleged infidelity (which he denied) that led Samuels to dub him "Pastor Holy Whore." Jamal said that he would never return to the show after the drama.

Bryant recently launched a podcast, "Reasonably Shady," with her best friend and costar Robyn Dixon. The two are often referred to as the "green-eyed bandits" by their fellow champagne flute holders on the reality series, which returns July 11 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

On the nearly hour-long episode titled "Breakup Or Make Up?" Bryant admitted that despite her ex-husband's infidelity in their marriage, the two would've broken up anyway because she lost herself in the union.

"I was in a shadow, you know? Jamal Bryant is a huge personality, a huge figure," she explained. "Any room he walks in, he sucks out all the air and I didn't have my own sense of who I am and who I want to [be]."

"Do not lose yourself in whatever relationship that you're in," Bryant continued. "Make sure you maintain your strength, your independence, your self-worth, because it can easily get wrapped up into him."

"If he's not helping you get to your individual greatness, you need to leave."
