Garcelle Beauvais doesn’t agree with the way Denise Richards was treated throughout the 10th season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” In fact, she feels as if only she and Dorit Kemsley were the only cast members who had Denise’s back during production.
While discussing the latest drama of the Bravo reality show with hosts Casey Wilson and Danielle Schneider for their “B*tch Sesh” podcast, as reportedly by Reality Blurb on July 30, Garcelle opened up about the cast’s poor treatment of the actress.
According to Garcelle, she was shocked by the way in which the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast sided with Brandi Glanville after Brandi went public with claims of an affair with Denise and accused Denise of trash-talking the rest of the women.
“My thing with the whole Brandi of it all is that … why is everybody taking Brandi’s side? If Denise is truly your friend… I felt like no one stood up for her other than me and Dorit [Kemsley],” Garcelle shared. “It just doesn’t make sense to me.”
Although a number of women immediately believed the claims Brandi was making against Denise, Garcelle did not. And when it comes to her thoughts about the other ladies, she feels that they should have given Denise a chance.
“If you’ve been friends with someone — and she’s in our circle — that if somebody was coming from the outside, you would at least give Denise the benefit of the doubt and I felt like they just believed Brandi right out of the gate. And that’s what I had a problem with,” Garcelle explained.
While Garcelle doesn’t agree with the way the ladies treated Denise, she said that she understood where they were coming from in wanting honesty from their cast mate.
“I think they felt like Denise wasn’t being honest and ‘owning it’ as Lisa Rinna would say. I think it’s also the women felt like Denise was saying, ‘Oh, it’s okay, it’s okay’ but then she was talking about it with other women. But that’s what we do!” Garcelle shared. “We sort of like, test out the waters and say, ‘What do you think about that?’ We check in with our girlfriends, that’s natural.”
Continuing on, Garcelle said that Denise had a right to put her foot down when it came to certain chatter around her kids.
“The whole thing about Denise being free, but yet she’s a hypocrite because she can say she gets a happy ending but she can’t talk around her kids but … who talks like that around their kids?” Garcelle wondered.
