“I mean, here’s the thing. I like Garcelle. I think she’s funny and beautiful and smart. I made a good point at the reunion. So, she’s probably bitter about it. But other than that, I think she’s great, and I think she’s gonna have a lot of success on the show, and I’m excited to watch her.”
Beauvais recently announced that she would be returning to the show for RHOBH Season 11. “I am returning to the Housewives, yes,” Beauvais told ET Online. After a long pause when asked how she felt about Mellencamp leaving the show, Beauvais simply responds, “Okay.”
