It's the day after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 10 premiere, and we're still picking our jaws up off the floor, especially after seeing all of the upcoming drama with Denise Richards, who we also learned "stopped shooting with the group" at some point this season.
After hearing rumors leading up to the new season and an explosive trailer, the sneak peek at the end of the RHOBH Season 10 premiere definitely gave us a better sense of what exactly is going on with Denise and the 90210 squad. But even Garcelle Beauvais, the newest Beverly Hills Housewife who has been friends with Denise for years before joining the show, said she was surprised by how everything unfolded when The Daily Dish caught up with her prior to the season premiere.
Garcelle also broke down Denise's behavior this season and why she believes things escalated with the RHOBH cast.
"I’ve been friends with Denise for a long time, and Denise always takes the high road. She’ll take a lot of crap, and she won’t necessarily give it back. Denise and I have had similar, you know, sort of not only just being actresses, but also high-profile divorces, and your stuff is in the media," Garcelle told The Daily Dish. "So I think with her, seeing how things developed, sometimes I wish she stood up for herself a little quicker or gave back some sass. She tended to walk away a lot and didn’t want to deal, hoping that things would just sort of blow over, and I think that’s the opposite with these ladies. I think [if] you don’t handle it in the beginning, then I think it just snowballs. And that’s what we ended up seeing."
When Garcelle appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home via video chat on April 15, Andy Cohen asked her if the reports are true that she is the only Beverly Hills Housewife still in contact with Denise. "I don't know if anybody else is talking to her, but we definitely keep in touch and text and talk," Garcelle said in the below clip. "Yesterday, I missed her call, actually, she wanted to FaceTime."
Garcelle also shared an update on how Denise is doing these days while at home with her daughters Sam, Lola, and Eloise. "So, yeah, she's doing great. She's with the kids," Garcelle said. "And I was saying how when I don't have my kids how lonely I am. And she's like, 'Girl, I would trade with you in a minute.' She doesn't have the luxury of another parent coming and taking the kids."
