It was widely reported weeks ago that Bravo was looking to diversify their cast of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ by adding an African American woman to the cast.

The reports intensified after the shocking departure of OG Lisa Vanderpump, and several Housewives fan pages began to speculate on who would swoop in and take Lisa’s spot. Now we know!

On Thursday (Aug. 29) Bravo officially confirmed the news that two new housewives are joining for season 10, and one is indeed black, and we happen to be quite familiar with her–Garcelle Beauvais.

“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. 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!” Garcelle said in a statement to The Daily Dish.

“Already being intimately familiar with the spotlight of Hollywood, my journey of successes and trials has already been chronicled and shared with my many loyal supporters around the world. The continual encouragement, support and yes, even at times, criticism, have helped make me the dynamic woman I am today. 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!”

Fans will recall Garcelle has had several starring roles in film and sitcoms including arguably her most popular role as Fancy on ‘The Jamie Foxx Show.’
