Garcelle Beauvais is drawing a line in the sand and making it clear that she’s Team Denise Richards when it comes to the drama on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“S—t happens. Things go down,” admitted on Us Weekly’s “Hot Hollywood” podcast. “[The reunion] was intense, and you know why you’re there, and everything’s being brought up, things that you may have forgotten, things like that. And everybody’s on high alert; it was like code orange. … It’s a long day. It’s a 13-hour-day, and obviously, we did it virtually, so that adds another thing to it, but it was just heated. It was a lot.”
She added, “I didn’t know what to expect. … It’s different watching it at home, and you’re eating snacks and watching it, and you’re not involved in it.”
Garcelle reveals that she thinks Lisa was way too hard on Denise throughout season 10.
“I felt like [Denise] was being hit hard all the time, and I felt like it was hard, time after time, after time,” Garcelle confessed. “At some point, you have to believe someone’s truth or just go, ‘OK’ and move on, but it wasn’t that way. I just felt like they were too harsh on her.”
As for her own friendship with Lisa, Garcelle said, “I wouldn’t say it’s over. But we’re not going to have any sleepovers anytime soon.”
Speaking of friendships, Garcelle also touched upon her budding friendship with Kyle Richards, who she’s been at odds with throughout season 10.
“I think we got off on the wrong foot,” she explained. “I think she misunderstood what I was saying, and I think she ran with it. … Could we have a friendship somewhere down the line? Absolutely.”
When it comes to season 11 of RHOBH, Garcelle says she’s not ready to commit just yet.
“I’m waiting it out. I kept on saying, ‘Let me get through the reunion,’” she revealed. “I got through the reunion. Oh, my God. It took me two days to shake that damn day.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
