And just when we thought we knew it all about Garcelle, the actress revealed new details about her life pre-fame and fortune on a recent episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Read on to find out what Garcelle shared about her childhood and to see exclusive photos from her teenage days.

Garcelle Beauvais' childhood

On Season 13, Episode 5 of RHOBH, which aired on November 22, Garcelle and her son Jaid discussed his love life. While chatting it up, the high schooler expressed his desire for more "freedom" to spend time with his girlfriend. However, Garcelle, on the other hand, felt that her son was already fortunate to be dating, as she didn't have the same privileges when she was his age.

“I couldn’t even date at 15,” Garcelle told her son before he jokingly mentioned that her upbringing was different since she lived in Haiti.

In an interview on the episode, the mother of three opened up about her parent's rules around her dating life. “As a teen, I wasn’t allowed to talk to boys,” she said. Garcelle continued to reveal the one time she and her father had a “car chase” after he noticed she had a guy in the vehicle who wasn't pleased, saying, “It was not pretty.”

When Garcelle explained her funny story, childhood photos of the RHOBH ‘Wife started to appear onscreen, and you better believe they were adorable.

We were first in awe by Garcelle’s infectious smile in a snapshot of when she was 12 years old. She wore a white tank with what appeared to be blue jeans. Another photo of Garcelle showed off her early modeling skills as she posed with her hand on her hip with a fierce smize. Check them out below.

Garcelle Beauvais reveals her tattoos at BravoCon 2023

Garcelle’s previous love life isn’t the only topic of discussion lately. At BravoCon 2023, the RHOBH ‘Wife revealed all her tattoos to fans while speaking on a panel, including a secretive one.

The first skin art that Garcelle showed off was a butterfly tattoo near her wrist that she noted was "for her mom." Next was Garcelle’s rose near her ankle; however, there was one more marking that she decided not to disclose.

“There’s another one that I…" Garcelle trailed off, adding, "That’s just mine."  With Garcelle failing to admit any more details, Bravo fans had to rely on their imagination to guess what the last tattoo might be and its location.
