Garcelle Beauvais is returning to Beverly Hills.
The reality star and daytime TV host confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that she has signed on for season 11 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“I am returning to the Housewives, yes,” Beauvais told the outlet. “You know, you gotta be a little, a little brave. A little scared. A little ready. I mean, it’s all those things, and I say it with a laugh because I’m ready, but you’re never really ready.”
This will be her second season on the Bravo franchise. News of her return comes on the heels of Denise Richards’ announcement last month that she is leaving the series.
Beauvais and Richards became close during season 10, and Beauvais said she’s disappointed to see her friend leave.

“I really wish she wouldn’t leave the franchise. I think she’s great. I think she brings a lot. I think the fans obviously love her and root for her, so I’m really sad about it,” Beauvais said. “I wish there was something that could have been done. I’m going to miss her, obviously. I’m going to miss her on the platform, but we always talk.”
The second season on the Real Housewives franchises can be fairly dramatic for new cast members. This is something Beauvais remarked she is aware of heading into this next season.
“That’s what I’m afraid of,” she said. “So, here we go, you know? And I sorta got a warning from Ms. Rinna, so we’ll see. I’m ready though, bring it.”
Beauvais is also a new host on the daytime talk show The Real and she currently hosts a popular podcast called Going to Bed with Garcelle.
