Garcelle Beavais Thinks Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Weren’t As Forward With Her Because She Is Black

When Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns for Season 10, we will “meet” a new Housewife. Garcelle Beauvais is the first African American woman to join the show. As we’ve all thought for many years, it’s about time that there was some diversity on this show.

It’s tough being the new girl on an established show, but filming didn’t seem to be too tough for Garcelle. Right now, she’s just waiting to watch the episodes to see what the women said about her behind her back and during on-camera interviews.

During a recent appearance on The Real, host Adrienne Bailon asked Garcelle, “Are you worried about what they might be saying in their confessionals?”

The newbie admitted that she is actually “a little bit” nervous. She also added, “A little bit. They didn’t say anything to my face, but I’m sure behind the scenes, someone must have said something.”

Adrienne followed up with “Why do you think they wouldn’t say nothing to your face?” Is she new here? That’s just how it is on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Many fans would agree that this cast is the least transparent out of all the Real Housewives shows.

Garcelle began, “I don’t know. I’m the new girl on the block and…” She got cut off when host Loni Love interjected to point out “and you black.”

Then, Garcelle got real and admitted, “I do think that because being the new girl [and] the first black woman on the show has made people a little bit nervous.” She went on to explain, “I don’t know if they were as forward as they would be. But, maybe in the confessionals, I’ll learn more.”

Yes, she will. These women will do whatever it takes to keep their spots on this show. Well, except for being honest about their own lives. But, when it comes to throwing someone else under the bus or tossing a bit of shade, they have no problem doing so.
