Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newcomer Garcelle Beauvais seems to be fitting in seamlessly with her costars! The actress and fellow cast member Erika Jayne enjoyed a day of shopping in Studio City, California on Thursday, September 19.
Garcelle, 52, looked fashionable in striped slacks, a white blazer, and a T-shirt with rainbow writing. Erika, 48, dressed down for the occasion in black jeans, a button down, and white heels. Both the ladies sported sleek hair and minimal makeup for their retail therapy session and seemed to be deep in conversation on the outing.
Garcelle announced she was joining the show for season 10 on August 29, making her the first black cast member on RHOBH.
"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. As the first African American Housewife in the Beverly Hills franchise, I am honored and humbled by this awesome opportunity to exemplify the fact that Black Girl Magic lives and thrives in every zip code!” she said in a statement to The Daily Dish.
Lisa Rinna's pal Sutton Stracke also signed on the dotted line to be a series regular. "I am thrilled and honored to be joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. As a mother to three children who is also deeply committed to my efforts in philanthropy, my life is a balancing act. There is a lot going on in the best way possible and I strive to pursue all of my passions to the fullest. I am excited to share my true loves of art and fashion design, and open the doors to my world. I am looking forward to this ride and where this journey takes me. Fun times ahead for this Southern belle in Southern California!" Sutton said in her own statement.
Lisa Vanderpump abruptly quit the show before the season 9 reunion and will not be returning. Camille Grammer was not asked back and she blamed Kyle Richards for her departure. "I wasn't asked back. It's fine. I did my time on the show. And it's Kyle's show. It was up to Kyle. I’m really fine. After the reunion I didn’t want to come back. It was an awful experience," Camille tweeted on August 29.
Even though the SUR owner isn't filming anymore, she's still finding herself in the middle of drama. During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, former housewife Eileen Davidson blasted Lisa for quitting the show, calling it a "p***y move." Lisa quickly clapped back by tweeting, "At least I resigned, you weren’t honest about the fact that you were fired … Now that’s a p***y move as you call it.”
