Keeping it real.
Erika has found herself in the hot seat amid her ongoing divorce and legal proceedings involving ex Tom Girardi. Yet, Garcelle admitted she was surprised that her question about Tom still calling Erika is what led to an explosive blow-up onscreen.
"I was stunned that that was the question that broke the camel's back," The Real host exclusively explained during today's Aug. 11 episode of Daily Pop. "She had been so honest and forthright about a bunch of things, and not just to me, to the other girls. So when I said, 'Oh, Tom calls her'—which she was mic'ed when she said it, so it's not like I said something out of turn—and they all went nuts. Everybody lost their mind, especially Erika."
Co-star Crystal Jung Minkoff was the only cast member to defend Garcelle. "I was in my separate car, because of COVID, everywhere we went on that trip, we were in separate cars," Garcelle revealed. "So I got into my car and I did not hear them have that conversation with one of the producers."
The rift certainly has impacted Garcelle's relationship with her other cast mates, including Lisa Rinna and Dorit Kemsley. "You know, we're trying to figure it out," Garcelle said of Lisa. "We're in a better place than we were before, but the season's not over."
Just don't count on her doing an Instagram dance video with Rinna! "Not a chance," Garcelle quipped.
She also didn't take lightly to Dorit's claims that Garcelle was "unauthentic" and just acting on RHOBH. "I am an actress," Garcelle pointed out. "I could do it but I'm not doing it. I haven't spoken to her. I'll see her at the reunion."
