Garcelle Beauvais Slyly Implicates Diana Jenkins, Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne In Racist BOT Attack On Her Son
Kyle Richards denied that she and husband, Mauricio Umansky, were headed for divorce earlier this month after reports revealed that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills couple had “separated.” However, Kyle’s co-star, Garcelle Beauvais, did not appear convinced during a July 13 appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
Garcelle Beauvais told host, Andy Cohen, that she and cast mate, Sutton Stracke, both had concerns about Kyle’s marriage while filming Season 13.
Andy Cohen asked the actress — “Was Kyle’s marriage a topic of conversation this season?”
Garcelle Beauvais didn’t hesitate to confirm the Bravo exec’s impression, responding — “Yes, for sure. Sutton and I were suspicious.”
Cohen went on to ask the 56-year-old if she had communicated with Kyle amid the bombshell news that her co-star and the real estate mogul had called it quits.
Garcelle shared — “I sent her a text asking her if she was okay,” and confirmed that Kyle had responded by writing that she was “hanging in there.”
A tipster told People that while Kyle and Mauricio had decided to part ways, they were still living together in the family home.
“Kyle and Mauricio have been separated for a while now but are still living under the same roof. They remain amicable as they figure out what’s next for them and their family,” the source told the outlet, on July 3.
Kyle and Mauricio called the divorce rumor “untrue” only hours later, writing on Instagram — “In regards to the news that came out about us today…any claims regarding us divorcing are untrue. However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously.”
“There has been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part,” Kyle wrote. “Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately. While it may be entertaining to speculate, please don’t create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative.”
Kyle’s co-star, Erika Jayne, 52, also addressed the rumored breakup during a recent interview with Billboard. She reminded the outlet that Kyle had shut down divorce rumors, commenting — “I’m going to let Kyle really explain, but they’re not splitting. They have had a very hard time. They’ve acknowledged that.”
Erika noted that she wanted Kyle to “tell her own story” during the upcoming thirteenth season of RHOBH.
Last week, TMZ reported that Bravo had resumed RHOBH production to capture the fallout from the rumored separation. Sources reported that the production crew had connected with some of the cast members earlier in the week. The network insider added that additional filming would not require “a terribly long shoot schedule,” and that the idea was to capture cast reactions in the aftermath of Kyle and Mauricio’s shocking split.
Garcelle also addressed the racist online attack her teenage son faced from a swarm of ruthless bots, in 2022. The despicable messages were not only downright evil but also racist. It got so out of hand that the poor teenager had no choice but to lock down his Instagram account, desperate to escape the relentless harassment.
While RHOBH fans speculated that the blame fell on Diana Jenkins and Lisa Rinna — they both vehemently denied any involvement. In fact, both Diana and Garcelle took matters into their own hands and conducted independent investigations to unravel the truth behind the attack. The situation has reached a stalemate, but Garcelle recently dropped a bombshell during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
Andy Cohen asked Garcelle about updates from Season 12’s newbie regarding her investigation. As diehard fans may recall, the newbie was determined to uncover the truth. Garcelle revealed that it’s been nothing but eerie silence since the cameras stopped rolling.
‘No,” Garcelle replied in a firm tone. Shutting down any hopes of new information emerging from her investigation. However, she did tease the audience with an intriguing statement regarding her suspicions about someone’s involvement in the incident.
“In my heart of hearts, I know whose behind it. But I will never say publicly,” Garcelle stated. When Andy asked if she believed it was Diana, Garcelle revealed she thinks many of her RHOBH co-stars were involved. “At the reunion, I did accuse other people, but that wasn’t shown.”
Many social media users strongly speculate the culprits are Diana Jenkins, Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne despite their denials.
Filming for Season 13 initially wrapped in May.
