Andy Cohen is opening up about the new cast members joining the season 10 cast of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
On Wednesday’s episode of Radio Andy, the Real Housewives executive producer opened up about Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke joining RHOBH.
Andy dished on hiring the first African American Beverly Hills Housewife, saying, “What makes Garcelle Beauvais an incredible addition tot he group, beyond the fact that she knows Rinna, she knows Denise, she knows the women, is – the thing that really stuck with 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, people responded to Denise so positively. I think people will really get that about Garcelle too. It’s just fantastic that she’s coming on. I’, thrilled. I’m so happy.”
As for the other new addition Sutton, Andy says “Sutton Stracke is incredible. I’m just going to let you find out about her. She’s the real deal. She’s got the BH lifestyle on steroids. So I’m sooo excited.”
Andy continued, “Typically Bravo doesn’t announce casting too early but I’m so glad that they announced this casting because there’s been so much speculation about what’s going to happen next year on Beverly Hills and what’s going to go on, so I think with announcement you see that we are firmly in business there.”

Garcelle and Sutton will join RHOBH stars Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Teddi Mellencamp, Erika Girardi, Denise Richards, and Dorit Kemsley. As we previously reported Camille Grammer will not be returning for season 10.
Meanwhile, RHOC star Tamra Judge recently revealed if she would quit the show if she was demoted to a friend. While discussing exiting Real Housewives, Lisa Vanderpump’s RHOBH exit came up and Tamra had a lot to say.
“I mean, quitting the show instead of defending yourself… I think [Lisa] should have shown up to the reunion,” Tamra told Us Weekly.
“I think she should of [attended the reunion]… even if she sat down and said, ‘Listen, I didn’t do it, I’m sorry you feel that way,’ or, ‘I did do it. I’m sorry. I got annoyed.’ Because the truth is, we have connections with everybody. We’ve been done interviews with everybody. If we wanted to leak a story, everybody could,” Tamra added.
“I think she should have reached out to Lisa first and said, ‘Listen, the dog is biting. Here you go,’” Tamra said.
However, Tamra didn’t agree with Camille Grammer‘s decision to bring up Dorit’s financial issues on the show.
“I think… in the Housewives world… that’s the last alternative,” Tamra explained. “That’s reunion stuff. Don’t talk about it on the show. That’s like when someone really makes you mad and it’s like, ‘Your husband owes my friend money.’ That’s one you keep in your back pocket.”
