Garcelle Beauvais Jokes About Joining The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills; Says “I Wanted To Do Something Outside Of The Box — It Is Sort Of Like My Midlife Crisis”

Garcelle Beauvais opened up about her decision to join the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the show's upcoming tenth season. “I feel like, ‘Why not?’ I wanted to do something outside of the box — it is sort of like my midlife crisis,” she said with a laugh. “Instead of buying a Corvette or doing something crazy, I joined the Housewives.”

Beauvais reveals that she has already learned some valuable lessons from the cast, like she “can’t let [her] guard down.”

“Because one minute they are laughing with you, and the next minute they are throwing you under the bus,” she told PEOPLE. “I’m like, ‘We were just cracking up!'”

“It is really interesting for me, because as an actor you are a character, so it’s really weird to show up and just be me,” she added. “So I’m just going along for the ride and seeing how it goes.”

The actress turned reality star reveals that she has also found out that she’s “a lot more sensitive than I thought I was.”

“I put up this tough exterior all of the time, I do my thing, I’m an independent woman. And I find myself… I got emotional on the show a few times,” she admitted. “I was surprised that could happen so quickly for me.”
