The 52-year-old star -- known for her work on "The Jamie Foxx Show," "NYPD Blue" and will appear in the upcoming "Coming 2 America" film -- is officially on board, alongside fellow newcomer Sutton Stracke.
"I am excited and proud to be joining the cast of such a wildly popular and beloved show like 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,'" Beauvais said in a statement to Bravo's Daily Dish blog. "As a working actor who has been in the industry for some time, it's exhilarating to have the opportunity to delve into a new chapter in the entertainment spectrum."
"As the first African American Housewife in the Beverly Hills franchise, I am honored and humbled by this awesome opportunity to exemplify the fact that Black Girl Magic lives and thrives in every zip code," she added. "I'm excited to share the many ongoing daily surprises, laughs and joys of being a working mother in today's crazy world. The hustle is R-E-A-L! No games, all heart and a little dash of fashion-filled sass is what you'll get when you step into my sphere ... and I wouldn't have it any other way!"
Garcelle currently appears on "Siren" and is mother to three children. She shares teen son Oliver with ex-husband Daniel Saunders and twins Jax and Jaid, 11, with second ex-husband Mike Nilon.
Stracke is also a mother of three and friend to ongoing housewife Lisa Rinna.
"As a mother to three children who is also deeply committed to my efforts in philanthropy, my life is a balancing act," she told The Daily Dish. "There is a lot going on in the best way possible and I strive to pursue all of my passions to the fullest. I am excited to share my true loves of art and fashion design, and open the doors to my world. I am looking forward to this ride and where this journey takes me. Fun times ahead for this Southern Belle in Southern California!
