Garcelle Beauvais Says She ‘Felt Pressure’ As The First Black RHOBH Cast Member!

Garcelle Beauvais admits she felt pressured to be cast as the first black cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

“Did I feel the pressure of being the first black woman on [‘RHOBH’]? Yes, I definitely felt pressure that people wanted me to come in and do a certain thing or have a chip on my shoulder,” Beauvais said on Wednesday’s episode of “Reality Life with Kate Casey” podcast, according to Page Six.

“I really didn’t want to be labeled an angry black woman, because that’s not who I am,” she continued. “I just wanted to stay true to who I am, and I think that’s what people have been able to see so far.”

Garcelle reveals that she still is learning to deal with the comments said on social media.

“I was not prepared for how social media takes over,” she said. “Lisa Rinna told me that it is one thing to shoot the show. It’s another to see it and what the others have said about you. Then the whole world weighs in. There are many layers to be on the show.”

Despite wrapping Season 10, she added, “I worry there are still mics on in my car. I don’t trust they are gone.”
