Garcelle Beauvais has yet to make her official debut in Season 10 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she's already making it clear she's not afraid to spill the tea (more on that in the video above as well). And in this case, it's a piping hot cup about her longtime pal and former co-star Jamie Foxx and his always-buzzy love life. Following rumors that he split from his longtime, semi-secret girlfriend, Katie Holmes, Garcelle has confirmed that he is indeed single.
“He’s the sweetest... And he’s also single!” she recently told Us Weekly. “We’re like brother and sister! We really are. Like, I’ve seen him go from party boy bachelor to a really great dad and, you know, we hang out with my kids, his kids, so it’s really beautiful.”
Still, Garcelle gets why women are attracted to the actor, who seems like he's been having some fun since his split. Garcelle, who starred on the sitcom The Jamie Foxx Show for five seasons, added to Us Weekly: “I find him incredibly sexy and we have insane chemistry."
OK, now that we've gotten the Jamie Foxx stuff out of the way, let's get to even more important news. The Daily Dish confirmed in August that Garcelle and Sutton Stracke were joining RHOBH. And the significance of Garcelle appearing on RHOBH is not lost on her as she shared in a statement at that time.
“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!” Garcelle said in a statement to The Daily Dish.
“Already being intimately familiar with the spotlight of Hollywood, my journey of successes and trials has already been chronicled and shared with my many loyal supporters around the world. The continual encouragement, support and yes, even at times, criticism, have helped make me the dynamic woman I am today. I’m excited to share the many ongoing daily surprises, laughs and joys of being a working mother in today’s crazy world. The hustle is R-E-A-L! No games, all heart and a little dash of fashion-filled sass is what you’ll get when you step into my sphere…and I wouldn’t have it any other way!”
