“I am thrilled to be joining the dynamic, bold and diverse women on the award-winning talk show ‘The Real,'” Garcelle told Variety. “My love for pop culture and news, blended with my natural gift of gab, has always made me gravitate towards a talk show environment. It’s also exciting that it’s happening right after my amazing time joining ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.'”
Garcelle also announced the happy news on Instagram. "I am beyond beyond excited to share this news that I am the new cohost of @therealdaytime," Garcelle wrote in a post on August 24. "Anyone who knows me knows that I love pop culture I love the news I love talking about it I love sharing my opinion and to be sitting at the table with these amazing women @comiclonilove @adriennebailon @thejeanniemai will be an honor and a blast."
Several of Garcelle's fellow Beverly Hills Housewives and Bravolebs alike sent their congratulations in the comments to her post on Instagram, including Dorit Kemsley, Erika Girardi, Denise Richards, Sutton Stracke, Kyle Richards, Cynthia Bailey, Heather Dubrow, Nema Vand, Asa Soltan Rahmati, and Kary Brittingham.
Garcelle thanked everyone for all of their love and support following the announcement in a tweet on August 25. "Happy Tuesday. Thank you guys for all the love and the congratulatory tweets about @TheRealDaytime," she tweeted. "I’m still smiling."
