“I’m so sad,” Garcelle said of The Real. “I feel like we were unleashed into the zeitgeist of talk shows, all women of color. We had different ideas and I’m really sad. I’ve only had two years, but that being said, I love the fact that these women were able to have eight seasons of this show, which is phenomenal.”
Now, Garcelle is focusing on her role as a Real Housewife. Season 12 of RHOBH has yet to premiere, but there’s already plenty of off-screen drama surrounding her recently released memoir. Erika, angry that Garcelle promoted the book by posting a clip of them from the new season’s trailer, went as far as to film herself throwing it in the trash.
“I thought it was a s–tty thing to do,” Garcelle told E! News. “A woman towards another woman. But also I also feel like the clip that I played to promote my book was part of our story. So it’s not like I made it up.”
