Garcelle Beauvais is taking viewers inside her journey of releasing her memoir, Love Me As I Am, as seen in the August 3 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In Wednesday's episode, Garcelle sits down with Dorit Kemsley and offers her an update on the making of the personal project.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

In this week's episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills After Show, Garcelle reflected on that journey and shared more insight into what it was like to share her life with the world in this way.

"It took a long process for me not only to decide to write a book, but what you're gonna write in the book and how much you're going to sort of share your story. Ups and downs, no one has a perfect life. So it was really important for me to share things that I thought I had peace around and I realize that I didn't. It was really cathartic," she explains in the RHOBH After Show clip, above, adding that she began the process of putting pen to paper following the emotional Season 10 RHOBH reunion.

From there, Garcelle then revealed that once the book was ready for consumption, she wanted to share the tome with the rest of the RHOBH ladies. Why? Well, she explains all that, clip above, and also shared her take on how the book was received once it was sent out.

Garcelle released Love Me As I Am back in April. In a statement last year, she said about the book: "When I started along the journey of penning my memoir I had no idea how much of an eye-opening experience it would be. I am deeply proud to share my journey as a woman, the struggles, and funny memories with those who have followed me throughout my career in Hollywood."
