What About RHOBH?
When the news broke of Garcelle’s new job, fans wondered what that means for her potential return to RHOBH. If Garcelle came back for Season 11, it would be her second season. Co-star Lisa Rinna already warned Garcelle that her second season would be harder. In fact, Lisa cautioned Garcelle that the second season is when the other ladies “come for you.”
Season 10 is Denise Richards’ second season with the show. It appears that Lisa’s warning is true, as Denise’s co-stars are attacking her left and right.
Except for Garcelle. Garcelle and Denise go back at least 20 years. The two became close early on in their acting careers. At this point, Garcelle is the only one standing up for Denise amid allegations of an affair with Brandi Glanville.
In fact, Garcelle and Denise made a pact to only return if the other does, too. In the excitement over her new co-hosting duties on The Real, Garcelle has yet to announce a decision about RHOBH.
Rumors circulating on social media that Garcelle is quitting RHOBH are unconfirmed at this point. Season 10 still has one episode left, plus the three-part reunion to follow.
The Real Returns in September
If Garcelle does leave RHOBH, fans can still see her on-screen. In addition to joining The Real, the actress will feature in the upcoming Coming to America sequel. As fans know, Garcelle was in the original film, alongside Eddie Murphy.
Us Weekly reports that Season 7 of The Real will be virtual due to the coronavirus restrictions. The new season premieres Sept 21, 2020. Fans will have to check their local listings. The Real airs on different networks and channels depending on your location.
The show has already been renewed for at least one more season.
