Garcelle Beauvais spoke about the drama that took place at the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion during an appearance on Us Weekly magazine’s Hot Hollywood podcast. She also opened up on her thoughts on a potential future friendship with castmate Kyle Richards.

Days after taping the virtual special for Season 10, Garcelle took aim at Lisa Rinna for the way in which she treated Denise Richards during the show, saying that she was “without question” too hard on her. Garcelle later unfollowed Lisa after the taping.

“I felt like [Denise] was being hit hard all the time and I felt like it was hard, time after time, after time,” she explained to listeners of the podcast. “At some point, you have to believe someone’s truth or just go, ‘OK’ and move on, but it wasn’t that way.”

According to Garcelle, Lisa and their co-stars, including Kyle, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, and Teddi Mellencamp, were “too harsh” on Denise, who was accused of trash-talking them to Brandi Glanville during last Wednesday’s episode.

As fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills may have seen in recent months, Garcelle and Kyle have been at odds publicly due to a comment Garcelle made about Kyle during an episode of Watch What Happens Live in the spring.

Garcelle suggested that Kyle was the “least welcoming” member of the cast, and Kyle clapped back by accusing Garcelle of fabricating a fake feud where there wasn’t one.

Looking back at their drama, Garcelle told Us Weekly that she and Kyle “got off on the wrong foot” before suggesting that their feud is the result of a misunderstanding.

“Could we have a friendship somewhere down the line? Absolutely,” she added.

As The Inquisitr previously reported, Garcelle also described the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion as “intense” during her appearance on the podcast. She noted that when it came to the drama between her and her co-stars, everything they endured during the season was rehashed during the reunion, even the things that had slipped her mind in the months since the episodes were shot.

“And everybody’s on high alert, it was like code orange,” she recalled.

She went on to say that things between her and her castmates were “heated” during filming and said she felt the 13-hour event, which marked her first Real Housewives reunion, was “a lot” to handle.
