Things are different in the 90210 now that Lisa Vanderpump is no longer on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but are the ladies in the new cast not getting along like recent reports claim? Erika Jayne addressed the rumor during her recent appearance on The Real, and she also shared her feelings on new cast members Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke.
When co-host Loni Love brought up the rumor that she and other show veterans Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley, Teddi Mellencamp, and Denise Richards weren’t getting along with the newbies, Jayne responded that the report “was terrible.” But, she did admit that things weren’t perfect.
“There is conflict. Here is the thing, We’re not finished shooting and we’re getting ready to go on our trip,” explained Jayne. “Things are bubbling and loving one another makes it harder when you do have a disagreement. It’s honest. If I didn’t like someone, then I would walk away. But knowing that I care about these women, it hurts when we go home.”
Love also asked Jayne about Beauvais – the first ever African-American cast member on RHOBH – and the Painkillr singer had nothing but great things to say about the actress. Jayne said she loved Beauvais and added that she was so happy for her. She also described her new cast mate as direct, fun, smart, and bright.
When Bravo announced that Beauvais had been added to the cast, The Jamie Foxx Show alum said she was excited and proud to be joining the popular show, and she found it exhilarating to have the opportunity to delve into a new chapter in the entertainment spectrum after working in the industry for three decades.
Beauvais also said she was honored and humbled by the opportunity to be the first African American on the series, and she was ready to show fans that “Black Girl Magic” lives and thrives in every zip code.
As for Stracke – who is good friends with Rinna – Jayne said that she is “cool,” and she loved having diversity in the cast this season.
Erika Jayne and the rest of the cast will return to Bravo with new episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2020.
