'RHOBH' Filming Halted After Erika Jayne, Lisa Rinna & Garcelle Beauvais Contract Coronavirus, Costars Reportedly 'Nervous'
Production on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has reportedly come to a halt after three of the ladies tested positive for COVID-19.
Garcelle Beauvais, Erika Jayne and Lisa Rinna all contracted the deadly virus, reported People, causing cameras to stop rolling out of precaution. "The girls who are sick are trying to take care of themselves. The other cast members are nervous now that they might have it. Production is taking every precaution to keep people safe," a source spilled to the outlet, adding: "All of the ladies are vaccinated. They're fine and will be fine because of it."
Beauvais, 55, took to social media to reveal her diagnosis via Instagram on Monday, December 13. "I found out that I tested positive for COVID. I feel okay, I'm sure I will continue to feel okay. My boys are being tested, so far they've tested negative," The Real cohost explained. "We're going to continue testing them," she said, referencing her 14-year-old twin Jax and Jaid.
The actress noted she "may show up" virtually over Zoom for The Real, but is looking forward to quaraniting for the "next 10 days." Jayne and Rinna have been mum on their diagnosis thus far.
The ladies made a joint appearance at the 2021 People's Choice Awards alongside their RHOBH costars Dorit Kemsley, Sutton Stracke, Kyle Richards and Crystal Kung Minkoff. The beloved bravo series was nominated for The Reality Show of 2021, but did not take home the prize.
Production coming to a standstill is a blow to producers as they began filming on season 12 just weeks after wrapping season 11 to capitalize on the "Painkillr" songstress' ongoing messy legal battle with ex Tom Girardi.
OK! reported, after the 50-year-old was the "sole focus" of the last season, "it’s going to be much more next season."
"The ratings were off the charts because of her storyline and what she’s exposed," the source explained. "What she’s dealing with [regarding] Tom and the court is not over yet so you can only imagine what next season is going to bring." The insider noted that Jayne — who reportedly raked in a whopping $600,000 for season 11 — demanded a pay raise for season 12.
