Garcelle Beauvais is The Real’s newest co-host, PEOPLE has confirmed.
“I am so excited to be joining the amazing women on the show,” Beauvais, 53, tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Being with them is so easy and effortless, the energy between us is spot on. I felt like we were having cocktails at my house.”
Beauvais joined the Bravo franchise for season 10. It is not immediately clear if her new hosting gig means she will be leaving the reality series. A Bravo spokesperson did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.
The Real’s latest addition comes after Tamera Mowry-Housley announced in July that she was leaving the talk show after six seasons.
“For seven years, my home and heart has been at The Real,” she began her statement on Instagram. “The friendships that I’ve made there will last a lifetime, and the people that I’ve had the blessing to interview have changed my life for the better.”
“I’m so proud of what all the ladies and I have accomplished there, including two well-deserved NAACP Image Awards and a Daytime Emmy. However, all good things must come to an end, and it’s with a bittersweet smile that I announced that I am moving on from The Real,” she continued.
She concluded: “To my fellow hosts, I love you, I will miss you, and I will always be there for you. Thank you for teaching me, supporting me, and loving all of me. Sisters forever. I’ll be rooting for you, as I look forward to spending more time with my family, pursuing amazing new opportunities, and embarking on the next chapter of my life.”
