Garcelle Beauvais Reveals The Real Reason Why She Joined RHOBH!

Garcelle Beauvais reveals the real reason why she decided the join The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. During a recent interview with E! News, the actress turned reality star was asked what made her join the Bravo hit reality series.

"That's a very good question!" Beauvais laughed. "First of all, I've been a fan of the show. I've obviously been friends with Denise [Richards] for over 20 years, friends with [Lisa] Rinna a very long time as well. So being a fan, and then when it came up, I thought immediately...My team was like, 'Oh, we're gonna pass,' and I said, 'Wait a minute, wait a minute! Let me let me sit on this for a minute.' And I thought, you know what, why not do something outside of the box, right?"

"I've been asked over the years to do docu-series and never really wanted to," Beauvais continued, adding she had to make sure her kids were fully on board also. "I had to obviously talk to my ex, talk to my boys and talk to everybody within my life because once you say yes, it's on."

Beauvais says viewers will see a "little bit of everything" in her life this season. "I was shooting a TV show and a movie. I was shooting Tell Me a Story, which was shot in Nashville. I was shooting Coming 2 America, which was in Atlanta," she explains. "And then coming home and dealing with the kids and the Housewives, so it was a lot of juggling."

Beauvais says viewers will see "that I keep it real."

Garcelle was the first African-American cast member to join the series. So how does the actress feel about making history? She believes is "one hundred percent" important "because that's the world we live in."

"I think it's about time and I don't really know why they didn't do it before. I'm glad it's me," she told E! News. "I think it's about time. I think we all want to see ourselves represented in all aspects of life, right? So I think when they came to me, the timing was right, and I was happy. I was happy to get on board. And then once I was thrown into the wolves, I was like, 'Oh, hell! Hold on, girl! Hold on!'"
