We are officially approaching the post-Lisa Vanderpump era on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Unofficially, we know how it feels to have a Lisa-free show since she dipped out of Season 9 mid-filming, skipped the reunion, and announced that she quit to the media instead of telling Andy Cohen.
Aside from Lisa’s exit, fans will be deprived of Camille Grammer and her pot stirring, which she blamed on Kyle Richards. Without the two of them, we are left with a
boring show full of “best friends” with an affinity for self-promotion. Enter, Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke. They both joined RHOBH for Season 10, which is a tough task in general, and following LVP’s exit.
In an interview with Us Weekly, Sutton and Garcelle were asked if they felt pressure to fill LVP’s shoes on the show. Sutton began, “Why would I? You know, I think it’s an honor to be on the show and I’m excited and just to step in and be myself.”
She continued, “I’m not anybody’s replacement, I’m not trying to be someone that I’m not. I’m just gonna be myself and live my life and I want other people to see what I’m doing, cause it’s really fun and I’m so blessed. I have a great life and I just want to spread the love and spread the fun.”
Hopefully “spreading the love” is a lot more entertaining than she makes it sound. If RHOBH becomes even more of a love fest, I don’t know how I’m going to get through Season 10. Of course, I will still watch no matter what, but I would prefer to watch some controversy instead of ass kissing…. cough cough Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave.
Garcelle told the magazine, “I feel like this is a new slate, you know? It’s a clean canvas and I’m coming in with my own thing.” Sure. But, the LVP Stans are more than ready to draw comparisons, valid or not.

Garcelle insisted, “I don’t feel like I’m replacing her. I don’t think anybody can replace her.” Something the LVP fandom would avidly agree with.
The new Housewife concluded, “I just feel like I’m gonna me, you know? And I’m doing so many other things.”
She shared, “[I] have a Netflix show coming out, Thanksgiving, called Merry, Happy, Whatever with Dennis Quaid. I’m doing Tell Me a Story with Kevin Williamson.” Ah, she really is a Housewife! She is a pro at sneaking in that self-promotion in a not-at-all subtle manner. She will fit in just fine! It’s only a matter of time before she starts selling dusters on TV. Just kidding.
