Garcelle Beauvais Says “It’s About Time” That There’s A Black Housewife On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills

While some fans loathed last season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, it was the most interesting season the show has had in years. Nevertheless, that really is not saying much. Most of the women on this show forget that the word “real” is in Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Instead, we see a superfluous amount of glam squad footage, shameless self-promotion, and rehearsed lines instead of their actual problems in life; i.e. the many lawsuits among the cast.

Even with all that, I’ll still be tuning into RHOBH Season 10. It might be a whole new show with Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke in the mix. Plus, we know that Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards have filmed some scenes. I’m just hoping this show will be good again.

Garcelle dished on joining the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast in a recent interview with E! News. She was asked about how she felt being the first black cast member on a predominantly white reality TV show. Garcelle told the publication, “It’s crazy, but I also feel like it’s about time. I mean, we’re in every zip code, are we not? So, hello.” Such a good point, girl. It really is about time that there’s some diversity on this show.

Garcelle was asked, “Did you realize it was gonna be this crazy?” The new Housewife admitted, “No, not at all. I’ve always been a fan. I’ve always watched the show, but to be in it and to see the crazy all around me, so fun. So fun.” Hopefully that “fun” is entertaining though. I can’t watch a whole season of everyone getting along and kissing each other’s asses.

And then there’s the big question: “Will you return for another season?” Even though we haven’t seen one clip of Garcelle on the show yet, the fans are already looking ahead to the next season. Garcelle answered, “I believe I would. I think I would. ”

However, Garcelle hasn’t filmed the reunion yet. That will be the ultimate test. She commented, “Lisa Rinna’s warned me. 100%. I’m scared to death.” As she should be. That’s a sixteen-hour day arguing while wearing an uncomfortable outfit.
