Actress Garcelle Beauvais is “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” official, as she made her first public appearance with her co-stars since joining the cast.
Beauvais, the first African American “RHOBH” cast member, hit up fashion week in New York over the weekend.
She was hanging out with new cast mates Dorit Kemsley, Denise Richards, Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne. They all looked gorgeous, with Beauvais looking right at place with the ladies.
The group even attended Kyle Richards fashion show and walked the runway for her. Teddi Mellencamp was also in attendance.
Rinna even posted a video getting ready for the runway while dancing to LL Cool J.
Beauvais captioned her photo, “#aboutlastnight #girlsnightout @theprettymess @deniserichards @lisarinna @doritkemsley #andsoitbegins”
Last month, Bravo announced Beauvais will be one of two new cast members on “RHOBH”. The 52-year-old actress has starred in everything from “The Jamie Foxx Show”, “Barbershop 2”, “NYPD Blue” and is set to appear in the upcoming “Coming 2 America” with Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall.
The actress released a statement about “RHOBH” saying, “I am excited and proud to be joining the cast of such a wildly popular and beloved show like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As a working actor who has been in the industry for some time, it’s exhilarating to have the opportunity to delve into a new chapter in the entertainment spectrum.”
Beauvais added “Already being intimately familiar with the spotlight of Hollywood, my journey of successes and trials has already been chronicled and shared with my many loyal supporters around the world. The continual encouragement, support and yes, even at times, criticism, have helped make me the dynamic woman I am today. I’m excited to share the many ongoing daily surprises, laughs and joys of being a working mother in today’s crazy world. The hustle is R-E-A-L! No games, all heart and a little dash of fashion-filled sass is what you’ll get when you step into my sphere…and I wouldn’t have it any other way!”
The actress is coming on board following Lisa Vanderpump quitting the show half-way through last season. Beauvais’ will be joined by another new Housewife named Sutton Stracke. They both will be joined by Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, Erika Jayne, Teddi Mellencamp, Denise Richards and Lisa Rinna.
