Garcelle Beauvais may not be leaving the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills despite previously claiming she wouldn’t return without Denise Richards.
Now that Denise has officially quit RHOBH, Garcelle is singing a different tune and hints that she will be back in the fold for season 11.
On Thursday, September 10, the RHOBH newbie appeared on SiriusXM’s The Jenny McCarthy Show and dished about Denise’s exit as well as her hopes to hash things out “on camera” with Kyle Richards and Lisa Rinna during season 11 of the show.
Garcelle admits she wasn’t surprised by Denise’s exit from Real Housewives and says that season 10 was “really hard” on Denise.
“I’m not surprised with the way things went,” Garcelle revealed. “This was a really hard season for her, and I think when you’re being constantly talked about, it could affect your marriage, it could affect your kids. I think that’s where she was coming from. It was like, ‘Just back off a little bit. Not every dinner needs to be about this.’ I think she’s just had enough.”
Speaking of drama, Garcelle then revealed that she hopes to sit down with both Kyle and Lisa “on camera” to hash out their issues, which arose while filming season 10.
“I prefer [to sit down and talk things out], honestly, because then I think we can move on and everybody can clear the air, whether it’s good or bad. I, personally, as a grownup, prefer that,” she explained.
She continued, “I think we’re probably going to wait and do it on camera.”
Garcelle also addressed Kyle’s recent comments that she didn’t give their friendship a chance and instead used her for a storyline on the show.
“My thing with Kyle is when there was an important topic, when she called us all fake a** b**hes, I was like, ‘What have I done? Tell me.’ And she’s like, ‘No, I don’t want to tell you.’ And I think that that’s when it [was] important for her to hear my voice [and] I felt like she did not hear my voice or care to hear what I was saying,” Garcelle explained.
“If that were the case, then Kyle used Denise as a storyline. Do you know what I mean? You don’t plot out a storyline. You go and you hang out with people. You may like them. You may not like them. There might be a disagreement, but there’s no such thing as I’m creating a storyline because we all go in it with a blank slate,” she continued.
As for why she unfollowed both Lisa and Kyle on Instagram, Garcelle said, “I follow people who I want to see thrive, I want to see what they’re doing, I want to see their journey… and I have to like you.”
Meanwhile, Garcelle hints that she’s also a little nervous about returning for season 11 of RHOBH. Garcelle’s nervousness comes after Lisa warned her about what to expect during her second season.
“Lisa Rinna was like, ‘The second season is usually when things happen.’ And I said,’ Is that a threat?’” she confessed. “It concerns me absolutely. I’m still human.”
Part 3 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 10 reunion airs on September 16.
