By Shannon Raphael

Since Garcelle Beauvais joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in Season 10, she's had a complicated dynamic with Erika Jayne

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Bravo on Wednesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

On Season 12, the pair clashed after Garcelle's 55th birthday party, and after Garcelle released her memoir, Love Me As I Am.

Fast-forward to Season 13, which premiered on October 25, and Erika is on a quest to reconnect with the group after having a "complicated" last two years. Garcelle is open to giving Erika "a chance."

"I want to see who she really is," Garcelle said in an interview on the Season 13 premiere. "Maybe we'll be surprised by her. You get what you give."

While appearing on the November 1 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Garcelle opened up about her burgeoning friendship with the "XX$pensive" singer following several seasons of drama. 

Where Garcelle Beauvais Stands with Erika Jayne

On WWHL, host Andy Cohen asked Garcelle about the conversation Erika had with her therapist, Dr. Jenn Mann, on the Season 13 premiere. 

In case you need a refresher, Erika talked to the counselor about becoming a "better friend" following her "low" times. Dr. Jenn advised Erika to "develop empathy," and the performer asked "where does that come from?" and "how do you develop that?"'

"You imagine being in that person's shoes, with their background and their history, and imagine what that feels like," Dr. Jenn said. 

Garcelle reflected on this discussion, noting, "It was really interesting watching that scene and her asking that, because you think, 'everybody's got empathy.'"

"You know, especially if it's someone [who] you're close to — so, I'm glad she's working on herself, let's put it that way," Garcelle said about Erika, which you can check out by watching the clip at the top of this post. "I think she's been on the defensive for so long that I don't think she understands [that] you should have empathy for other people."

Andy then pointed out that there are "a couple moments this season where [Garcelle is] very surprised by the way [Erika] reacts."

"I felt like she sort of turned a corner this season," she agreed.
