Andy Cohen Is Happy Garcelle Beauvais Is Joining ‘Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’: She’s Incredibly Open
He explained why she’s a good fit and said it helps that she knows some of the ladies on the cast already. But he said he was really impressed with how much the former The Jamie Foxx show actress was willing to share about her life.
“What makes Garcelle Beauvais an incredible addition to the group, beyond the fact that she knows [Lisa] Rinna, she knows Denise [Richards], she knows the women, is — the thing that really struck me when I saw her interview is how incredibly open she is. She is ready to go in this genre. In much of the same way that people responded to Denise so positively. I think that people will really get that about Garcelle too. It’s just fantastic that she’s coming on. I’m thrilled. I’m so happy.”
He also said he’s happy that Bravo took a different route and announced casting for the show earlier than normal.
It was previously reported that Beauvais is the first Black woman to join the RHOBH cast.
She said in a statement,
“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!”
She added that fans will definitely get a peek into her personal life.
“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!”
