The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills costars have not been on the best of terms while filming season 12 of the hit Bravo series — and now, Beauvais, 55, is dishing all about what she initially thought of the "XXPEN$IVE" vocalist, 50, in her new book, Love Me As I Am.
In a shockingly kind statement, perhaps written prior to their fight, the former host of The Real writes of Jayne: “I took instantly to her no-nonsense, direct, cut-to-the-chase attitude. It was very New York. A little tough and dude-leaning, just like me. She’s seen somethings. I respected her story and struggle to get to where she was."
However nice the comments may be, the former Chicago actress did not seem impressed. After getting her hands on an advanced copy, Jayne took to her Instagram Story on Sunday, April 10, to post a picture of Beauvais' book (which is out Tuesday, April,12) thrown in the garbage. “@Garcelle, even though you unfollowed me I’m sure you’ll see this,” Jayne wrote alongside the photo of her ex-pal's memoir in the trash.
In the trailer for the highly anticipated season of RHOBH, tensions between the two are at an all time high, with the Wild Wild West star pointing out the pop star's drinking habits have gotten out of hand as she continues to navigate the mountain of lawsuits against her and estranged husband Tom Girardi.
In another awkward moment, Jayne asks Beauvais if she's trying to make her look bad, in which the actress responds, “I don’t have to make you look bad — you can do that all on your own.”
As OK! previously reported, Beauvais has been an outspoken critic of the Pretty Mess author following her less than empathetic response to Girardi allegedly screwing over burn victims, orphans, widows and countless others. (The former attorney was accused of running his law firm like a ponzi scheme, as he never paid his apparent victims their settlement funds and instead used the money to fund his and Jayne's lavish lifestyle.)
After the blonde bombshell refused to hand over a pair of $1.4 million earrings to pay back the victims, The Jamie Foxx Show star noted during an episode of The Real, “I would give up the diamonds quickly."
“There’s so much more she could do, even if she’s not guilty of knowing everything Tom [Girardi] was doing," she continued, notting: “I have compassion” for the victims. "When [Erika] shows up to work she is diamond-ed out. She’s got a lot. Getting rid of those diamond earrings isn’t going to hurt her."
