Garcelle Beauvais told Access Hollywood that she’s sticking by her co-star, Denise Richards, as she faces shocking rumors about an affair with Brandi Glanville and allegations that she’s been gossiping about the other The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills(RHOBH) ladies.

Days after Garcelle and her co-stars filmed the reunion special for Season 10 virtually with host Andy Cohen from their homes in Los Angeles, Garcelle appeared on an episode of Access Hollywood. During that interview, she confirmed that when it comes to the current divide between the women, she’s “Team Denise.”

“I mean, she’s been my friend for a long time. So how do you not stay loyal to a friend of yours?” she said.

Garcelle stated that she doesn’t know Brandi that well. So, when it comes to Brandi’s claims — including that she slept with Denise twice and that the reality star spoke poorly about a number of their costars, especially Teddi Mellencamp — it wouldn’t have made sense to take her side because they were never close.

“If I’m going to stand with someone, I’m going to stand with someone who is a [pal] of mine,” Garcelle explained.

During the same interview, Garcelle shared her thoughts about potentially returning to the RHOBH cast to film the show’s upcoming 11th season. She stated that she’s still “thinking about it.”

“They also have to ask you back, so it’s a two-way street,” she added. “But you know, we’ll see.”

Because of the ongoing restrictions put into place for the safety of the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, it is hard to say when Garcelle and her co-stars will learn about whether or not they’ll be asked back to the show, and when they will begin filming Season 11 if they are.

Fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills know that Garcelle first joined the cast in August of last year after the exit of Lisa Vanderpump, who announced she was quitting the show in June of last year. As The Inquisitr previously reported, Garcelle appeared on an episode of Reality Life with Kate Casey earlier this month, where she admitted that she’d been asked to appear on the series before, but turned down the offer.

During her chat with Kate, Garcelle said that after splitting from ex-husband Mike Nilon, she felt that the time was right.

“I thought, you know what? I’m single, so that’s better, because I’m not married and going into reality TV, because I think it messes up marriage in a way,” she recalled.
