Many may know Garcelle Beauvais as a current cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she is also successful in other areas of the entertainment industry. Not to mention, she has a very interesting personal life fans got a taste of during season 10.

During Garcelle’s first season on the Bravo reality series, she was not afraid to stand up for herself and go against the more-seasoned ladies on the show. She was even there for Denise Richards when the other women turned on her after the rumor of her affair with Brandi Glanville began to circulate. Even though a majority of the women were trying to take Denise down, Garcelle was there to pick her up and help her out. Garcelle is even willing to own up to things she said in the past that were a bit offensive, which is more accountability than the other women on the show have taken.


According to Celebrity Net Worth, Garcelle was born November 26, 1966, in St. Marc, Haiti. Before her days as a cast member on RHOBH, she was an actress and a model. She got her start in the entertainment business as a model in New York City – a longtime dream of hers – and was signed to the agency Ford Models. She began to appear in print ads for brands such as Avon, Mary Kay, and Clairol. In addition, she modeled in catalogs for Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, and was even featured in magazines such as Essence and Ebony. Once she decided she no longer wanted to model and switched to acting, Garcelle had a smooth transition. She relocated to California and got her start in acting on the drama series Models, Inc. Some of her most notable work includes her portrayal of Fancy in the popular sitcom The Jamie Foxx Show and her role as Rose in the movie Coming To America.

Besides TV and movies, Garcelle found other ways to use her notoriety to make money. In 2020, she got a co-host spot on the daytime talk show The Real alongside Adrienne Bailon, Loni Love, and Jeannie Mai. She also hosts a weekly podcast called Going to Bed with Garcelle where she discusses dating, sex, and relationships with her guests. Garcelle even has her own Instagram dedicated to her different beauty looks. She often shares photos of her makeup for a shoot or interview, and will even share any magazine covers she has recently done. Garcelle has also had some success in her personal life. She got married to her first husband, producer Daniel Saunders, in 1991, and the couple had a son together named Oliver. The pair divorced nine years later in 2000. Not too long after her first marriage ended, she met and married CAA talent agent Mike Nilon in 2001. The couple had two twin boys together who were born in 2007. On RHOBH, Garcelle revealed how she found out Mike was cheating on her, which led to their 2011 divorce.

Look out for season 11 of RHOBH to get to know Garcelle even more and see how she mingles with the ladies this year without Denise. Garcelle may be one of the best housewives, but she might already be over the ladies of Beverly Hills.
