Garcelle Beauvais has recently become the newest co-host of The Real, as Variety reports. The actress and reality TV star is joining the daytime talk show, following the departure of Tamera Mowry-Housley, who announced earlier this summer that she had decided to leave the show after six seasons.
On Sept. 21, the seventh season of The Real begins, and the show will feature Beauvais alongside Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, and Adrienne Houghton. “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 recently became the first Black cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The actress is best known for her roles on The Jamie Foxx Show and NYPD Blue. Beauvais was also recently in Spider-Man: Homecoming and the CBS All Access series Tell Me a Story.
The actress, model, and new co-host will also make an appearance in the forthcoming sequel Coming 2 America, following her appearance in the original film with Eddie Murphy in 1988. In 2013, The Real launched with Mowry-Housley, Love, Mai, Houghton, and Tamar Braxton, who exited the talk show in 2016. Comedian and actress Amanda Seales became a co-host of The Real, earlier this year in January, before exiting back in June.
