Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Garcelle Beauvais is quickly learning the ropes of being in the Bravosphere.
“We only texted and she’s like “Girl, I have so much to tell you,’” Garcelle told Us Weekly. “So we’ll catch up and figure it out, but it’s tough when you have everything exposed and you have your side of it and people are seeing their side of it. It’s hard to figure out what’s right and what’s wrong. So we’ll know at the end. We’ll figure it out at the reunion.”
“It shocked me that things are out there already because I feel like who’s leaking? But, it’s very shocking,” Garcelle said of the situation. “Sometimes it was hard for me to be there. Sometimes it was hard for me to watch if I can say that. Do you know what I mean? Because it’s a new experience for me. I’m an actress and I’m used to that, so real-life and seeing people sort of go after one another is a new thing for me in that sense.”
Garcelle also admits that Denise is her closest friend on the show.
“I got really close with Denise. Denise and I are really good buds,” she confessed. “I’ve been friends with Denise and [Lisa] Rinna for a long time. Erika [Jayne] I love because her and I are very similar in terms of we say it how it is and we keep it moving. I really enjoyed working with her a lot.”
Speaking of drama, Garcelle says that Rinna warned her about how difficult it will be to relive the drama when it airs.
“She goes, ‘You have no idea, you do the show, and when the show comes out, people weigh-in, and then you see what the women are really saying about you. So it’s like a whole other show,’” Garcelle explained. “So I don’t know! I’m scared. … I don’t know what the women are saying, I just know what we do. But, my thing is learning not to let my guard down, because one minute they’re laughing, and the next minute they’re throwing you under the bus. So I gotta learn to be on my guard all the time.”
