Lisa Rinna is that ex-boyfriend that Garcelle Beauvais can’t escape running into.
“There are tensions, so it’s like seeing an ex-boyfriend,” Garcelle told Page Six on Monday of her longtime frenemy.
The actress turned Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star “[doesn’t] know” where her and Lisa’s friendship stands as they don’t exactly hang out outside of filming.
The two alongside the rest of the RHOBH cast are set to present at the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted show on June 5 where they are nominated for Best Docu-Reality Show.
Garcelle expects her interaction with Lisa to be “quiet” at the award show.
“We haven’t done that yet, but I’m sure it will be [super uncomfortable] because we don’t want to give anything away because of the reunion,” she said.
When asked if she hopes to repair her friendship with Lisa one day, Garcelle said, “We have to see how it plays out this season. I don’t want to jump the gun, I don’t know. I just feel like we have to see where we land by the reunion. We see the episodes two days before they come out, so you don’t really get to see an entire season and see how it plays out.”
Meanwhile, Garcelle also weighed in on Lisa’s recent attacks on their co-star Sutton Stracke. Lisa called Sutton a “golddigger” on Instagram and claimed that she only accumulated her wealth after divorcing her ex-husband, Christian Stracke, in 2016.
“It’s unfortunate because I feel that Sutton’s always getting the brunt of it,” Garcelle said of Lisa’s attacks. “But [Sutton] is stronger than you think.”
Garcelle hints that fans will see Sutton defend herself against Lisa and Erika Jayne during season 12.
“I’m happy that you’re finally seeing her stand up,” Garcelle said. “It’s great.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm on Bravo.
