Garcelle Beauvais is changing her tune after copping backlash when she came for Lisa Rinna. The beloved newest member of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast took to social media to promote “girl power” ahead of tonight’s episode after fans watched as Garcelle critiqued Rinna for her underwear dance videos and even brought Lisa’s 19-year-old daughter’s eating disorder into the conversation.
Over the past few weeks, Lisa Rinna’s provocative Instagram and TikTok dance videos have been a topic of conversation amongst the “housewives.”
When Kyle Richards asked Lisa Rinna what her mom, Lois, thought of her racy dances on social media, Rinna responded that her mom “sees everything.” She also added, “Even though I know I’m being ridiculous, I always know that she gets to see everything and the girls. I think it really is great for her.”
That’s when producers cut to Garcelle Beauvais in her confessional where she dropped the diss aimed at her co-star. “I love that Lisa’s free enough to do the videos and be dancing,” she began, “but the dancing nearly naked is not a choice for me if I had a daughter that had body issues.”
Rinna’s daughter Amelia Hamlin first opened up about her anorexia in 2016 and when fans heard Garcelle’s comment, they thought she hit below the belt. “RHOBH” viewers immediately took to Twitter and demanded Garcelle Beauvais apologize but that her “I’m sorry” has yet to come.
Interestingly enough, on Tuesday, August 18, she took to Instagram and encouraged her female followers to believe in themselves while promoting “girl power.” Posting a black background with the words reading, “The strongest actions for a woman is to love herself, be herself and shine amongst those who never believed she could.”
Garcelle Beauvais then hashtagged a number of inspirational words including: “love yourself” and “girl power.” Instead of slamming the star for switching sides, many fans took to her comment section to show their support.
“I’m glad you were on the housewives show, you really have been a breath of fresh air and I’ve really enjoyed your opinion and outlook,” one person wrote. “You’re the Oprah of RHOBH. LOVE LOVE LOVE you and your honesty, intelligence, and ambition,” commented a second.
