Garcelle Beauvais Opens Up About Joining The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!

Garcelle Beauvais is one of two new additions to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The actress turned reality star is opening up about joining the Bravo hit reality series for the show's upcoming tenth season.

“I had just landed on a trip from shooting a scripted show,” the actress told Bravo when she found out she became the newest RHOBH cast member. “I got a call, and they were like, ‘you’re a housewife!’ I was like, ‘shut up!’ I was screaming at the airport.”

Beauvais went on to share that despite having never done reality TV, she has no problem being her authentic self.

“Scripted world, you show up, you know your lines, you’re a character, you can sort of hide who you are, be this other person. Housewives? I’m showing up as me.”

Garcelle called the experience “interesting so far,” adding, “I’ve shot with me, my kids, my ex. Right now everybody’s cool, everybody’s chill, everybody’s welcoming but I know things might change, some drama might be upon us and I’m ready for them.”

In late August, Bravo confirmed the news that Garcelle and Sutton Stracke joined RHOBH for the show's upcoming new season after Lisa Vanderpump decided to walk away from the series after nine seasons.

“I am excited and proud to be joining the cast of such a wildly popular and beloved show like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As a working actor who has been in the industry for some time, it’s exhilarating to have the opportunity to delve into a new chapter in the entertainment spectrum. As the first African American Housewife in the Beverly Hills franchise, I am honored and humbled by this awesome opportunity to exemplify the fact that Black Girl Magic lives and thrives in every zip code!” Garcelle said in a statement to Bravo's The Daily Dish. “Already being intimately familiar with the spotlight of Hollywood, my journey of successes and trials has already been chronicled and shared with my many loyal supporters around the world. The continual encouragement, support and yes, even at times, criticism, have helped make me the dynamic woman I am today. I’m excited to share the many ongoing daily surprises, laughs and joys of being a working mother in today’s crazy world. The hustle is R-E-A-L! No games, all heart and a little dash of fashion-filled sass is what you’ll get when you step into my sphere…and I wouldn’t have it any other way!”''
