For the first time ever a Black Woman is joining the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!
According to Bravo, RHOBH will welcome two new faces, actress Garcelle Beauvais known for playing Fancy I’m the Jamie Foxx Show, NYPD Blue, Franklin & Bash etc.
“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! 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!”
Garcelle famously emailed her ex-husband’s friends when she found out he was cheating on her she will fit in very well.
Shortly after their twins sons were born, Garcelle was using her husband’s phone because she’d left hers at home. When she picked it up, she saw a message from someone that said, “I love you.” That was how she learned that her husband of nine years had been carrying on an extramarital affair for the past five years. The news came as a complete shock to Garcelle. She told Live Happy, “This was the person I trusted. This was the man I thought was my final stop in relationships. My body shut down. I couldn’t get out of bed for days. There were nights I cried so much it was like the best ab workout I could do. The next day I was sore. If the Garcelle of today could tell that sobbing Garcelle something it would be, “You’re not going to believe it, but you’re gonna get through this. You’re going to get through it.”
A friend of Lisa Rinna’s is also joining the show, Sutton Stracke.
“I am thrilled and honored to be joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As a mother to three children who is also deeply committed to my efforts in philanthropy, my life is a balancing act. There is a lot going on in the best way possible and I strive to pursue all of my passions to the fullest. I am excited to share my true loves of art and fashion design, and open the doors to my world. I am looking forward to this ride and where this journey takes me. Fun times ahead for this Southern Belle in Southern California!”
I wonder if Camille Grammer Meyer will be featured this season ….
