Holding on to her diamond!
Garcelle Beauvais confirms that she will be returning to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for season 11.
The actress announced her return during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, October 7.
“I am returning to the Housewives, yes,” Garcelle revealed. “You know, you gotta be a little, a little brave. A little scared. A little ready. I mean, it’s all those things, and I say it with a laugh because I’m ready, but you’re never really ready.”
Garcelle previously said she wouldn’t return for another season of RHOBH without Denise Richards. However, that all seemed to change once Denise decided not to return for season 11.
“She’s like, ‘If you don’t come back, I’m not coming back,’” Garcelle told SiriusXM’s EW Live in August. “And I’m like, ‘And if you don’t come back, I’m not coming back.’”
The Real host later changed her tune and said she’d be happy to return if Bravo wanted her back.
“Well, I did say that,” Garcelle said on the season 7 premiere of The Real. “I had a really great time doing the show. It’s up to Bravo, but I’m definitely up for another season.”
Speaking of Denise and season 11 of RHOBH, Garcelle admits she is “sad” Denise won’t be by her side during the new season.
“I really wish she wouldn’t leave the franchise,” she said. “I think she’s great. I think she brings a lot. I think the fans obviously love her and root for her, so I’m really sad about it. I wish there was something that could have been done. I’m going to miss her, obviously. I’m going to miss her on the platform, but we always talk.”
While Garcelle was upset over Denise’s departure, the same can’t be said for the rest of the RHOBH cast.
Several members of the RHOBH mocked Denise’s exit from the show with various memes and GIFs on social media.

Garcelle confesses she was “shocked” by her co-stars’ reactions.
“I was really shocked by the memes; I thought that they were really mean,” she said. “I mean it’s one thing to be on the show and have your feelings, but for her to say, ‘I’m leaving the franchise,’ at that point you gotta level up and you gotta say, ‘Good luck, Denise, we wish you were …’ I mean, just something kind.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is expected to return for season 11 in mid-2021.
