A hot take indeed!
Garcelle Beauvais implies that Erika Jayne should have waited for her husband Tom Girardi to die instead of filing for divorce.
During Wednesday’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Garcelle shocked her co-stars by suggesting that Erika didn’t need to file for divorce from her much older husband.
In the episode, the whole group got together at Sutton Stracke’s house for the first time since Erika filed for divorce. As they waited for Erika to arrive, Garcelle noted how “shocked” she was to find out about Erika and Tom’s split.
“I didn’t see it coming. I remember when I met her last year, we had this amazing lunch, and the moment she mentioned him, she welled up,” Garcelle said.
The show then did a flashback to season 10 of Erika telling Garcelle, “The one thing I love the most about Tom — when my son was younger, he welcomed him. I’m very thankful.”
Garcelle then told Kyle Richards, Kathy Hilton, Dorit Kemsley, and Lisa Rinna that she “felt the love” between Erika and Tom. “I said, ‘That’s what I want.’”
All of the ladies then admitted they were surprised by Erika’s decision to end her marriage to Tom, which occurred only days after the group returned from their trip to Lake Tahoe.
“No one knew in Tahoe? Really?” Garcelle asked before noting in her confessional that she thought Tom and Erika were on “solid ground” based on Erika’s comments throughout the trip.
Garcelle then asked the ladies, “You think she really filed? That it’s her idea? … Shouldn’t she wait?”
Lisa then for clarification, asking “for what?” as Garcelle stared at her costars, hinting that her implication was pretty damn obvious.
“I know what you’re thinking. I literally know what you’re thinking,” Dorit replied.
Garcelle continued, “I don’t know. I just feel like they’ve been married that long, like ….”
The other ladies FINALLY caught on to what Garcelle was saying, and Sutton said, “Stop it, Garcelle!”
Garcelle quipped, “I didn’t say it! I’m implying it, and y’all are slow!”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
