Garcelle Beauvais Joins The Real as Co-Host

Meet your new The Real co-host: Garcelle Beauvais. Variety reports that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is joining the Fox talkshow as the fourth panelist after the exits of both Amanda Seales and Tamera Mowry-Housley earlier in the summer.

Beauvais will be joining three other women at The Real table. Season 7 is set to star Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Houghton, along with their new co-host.

In a statement released today, Beauvais confirmed that she’ll be keeping her Real Housewives gig along with her new hosting job. “I am thrilled to be joining the dynamic, bold and diverse women on the award-winning talk show The Real,” Beauvais said. “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.”

Beauvais joined The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills earlier this year as the show’s first Black cast member. Before her time on the Bravo series, the actress starred in shows like Franklin & Bash, The Magicians and Tell Me A Story, and had roles in multiple films including Flight and Spider-Man: Homecoming. 

The Real first launched on Fox in 2013 with an original cast of Mowry-Housley, Love, Mai, Houghton and Tamar Braxton, who left in 2016. The women discuss pop culture, current issues and their own personal lives on the show, which has been renewed through Season 8. The series began to film remote episodes during the start of the coronavirus pandemic, and will continue production remotely for Season 7.

“We are so thrilled to have Garcelle joining our ‘virtual’ Girl Chat Table,” said executive producer Rachel Miskowiec. “Her extensive career in front of and behind the camera, and her willingness to share her life and her points of view on important topics with us make her the perfect addition. We can’t wait for Season 7 to begin.”

Beauvais’ casting on The Real comes after Seales left the show after less than six months of working there. In June, the actress and comedian called out the show for its disrespect of Black voices. “The people at the top are not respecting the necessity for Black voices to be at the top, too,” she said. “It doesn’t feel good to my soul.”
