Carlton Gebbia may be new to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but the bold Brit can certainly hold her own among this dramatic crowd. At the RHOBH premiere party, Carlton chatted with OK! about what we can expect to learn about her this season and how she’s managing her new, intense group of friends.
OK!: Coming into this cast, did anyone offer you advice on how to deal with this group?
Carlton Gebbia: You know, they all were incredibly receptive. I mean all of them coming in. I knew that it probably wasn’t going to last because the way I compare it is walking into a school playground when you go to elementary school. It’s kind of the same dynamic. I definitely got my little signals of what I thought was going to end up happening of who I thought I probably wouldn’t gel with and it really did materialize in the end. That wasn’t a pleasant experience. It went south very quickly. But, you know, I don’t have any regrets. I wouldn’t take it back. I wouldn’t change anything.
OK!: Do you feel like you’re a good judge of character?
CG: I actually do. I rely a lot on gut intuition. I think if you meet somebody and they say something to you and it doesn’t feel right you have to listen to that. I’ve always done that my whole life and the times I’ve ignored it I usually get a slap universally. So, yeah, I definitely think I’m a great judge of character.
OK!: What will we learn about you this season?
CG: Gosh, you know, it’s so funny because one’s perception of what we put out may differ from what you actually see. I hope editing is gentle. I think you’ll learn that I do speak my mind but I’m very much about justice. I don’t like drama for the sake of it. I do think that women are extremely powerful and unfortunately because some women are very insecure there’s a jealousy that trips us up so it kind of stops the evolving process. But you’ll see me be naughty. You’ll see me be silly and you’ll see me make mistakes. I’m okay with that. It’s my reality. I don’t hurt anyone I don’t think. I’m not out to hurt anybody but I don’t like silly shit. I really don’t.
