Garcelle Beauvais Opens Up About ‘RHOBH’ Being Shut Down After Production Crew Members Tested Positive For COVID!

Garcelle Beauvais opens up about The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills shutting down production due to COVID concerns. 

The Real talk show co-host spent Thanksgiving, which also happened to be her 54th birthday, isolating due to a COVID-19 scare on the set of the Bravo hit reality series.

“We shot for Housewives on Tuesday, Tuesday night we got home and found out that a few people in our crew tested positive for COVID,” Garcelle said on Tuesday's episode of The Real via Entertainment Tonight

Garcelle says she and her co-stars all have to quarantine for 14 days, and her 13-year-old twin sons, Jaid and Jax, are temporarily staying with their father, Garcelle's ex-husband, Mike Nilon.

“We do all the protocols,” Garcelle told her Real co-hosts. “We get tested at least three times a week. We get tested before we shoot. You know, my kids get tested, I get tested, anybody who's in my household, and you know, we did the right things, but at the same time, it just shows you that this virus -- you can touch something, you can… you know, it's not necessarily just from people.”

“Hopefully everybody will be healthy, and we're down for a few weeks, but then we'll be back to work,” she shared. “But luckily for me, we do The Real from home, so I can still do this job, which I’m thankful for.”

Garcelle added that she has no symptoms, has had multiple negative coronavirus tests, and continues to be tested multiple times a week amid her quarantine.

Last week, it was reported that RHOBH paused filming for the show’s upcoming eleventh season after a member of the production team tested positive for COVID-19, reported Entertainment Tonight.

In the meantime, the cast and crew are following all proper safety protocols. Production on the current season is set to resume after the holiday. 

Meanwhile, other sources are sharing more details on the topic. “RHOBH was shut down due to COVID. Everyone thinks it’s a crew member that tested positive and the ladies and production were informed this morning,” a source told HollywoodLife.

“They filmed yesterday. Everyone’s been told to quarantine for 14 days and haven’t been told much else right now,” the source explained, referencing the CDC’s recommended two-week quarantine period for those who have either tested positive for or been exposed to the deadly virus. “They have no idea when they’ll start up again. Everyone’s just waiting for more info,” the source added. 

The cast of the upcoming season of RHOBH includes Dorit Kemsley, Erika Jayne, Garcelle Beauvais, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, and Sutton Stracke — as well as newcomers Crystal Kung Minkoff and Kathy Hilton.
