‘RHOBH’ Casts Garcelle Beauvais and Sutton Stracke for Season 10

Published

on

Garcelle Beauvais is about to make Housewives history!

The actress, known for The Jamie Foxx Show, NYPD Blue and, most recently, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is officially joining the cast of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, becoming the first black woman on the cast of the Bravo hit. Beauvais is one of two new additions to season 10 of RHOBH. She’s joined by party planner Sutton Stracke. Bravo announced the casting news on Thursday.

“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. “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!”

“I am thrilled and honored to be joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Stracke shared in her own statement. “As a mother of three children who are also deeply committed to my efforts in philanthropy, my life is a balancing act. 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!”

“I’m excited to share the many ongoing daily surprises, laughs and joys of being a working mother in today’s crazy world,” Beauvais added. “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!”

Both women are pals of Lisa Rinna, who is also returning to the series, alongside Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp, Dorit Kemsley, Erika Jayne, and Denise Richards.

Lisa Vanderpump, of course, is not returning to the show.

“It just became very difficult and I just said, ‘Oh, OK. That’s enough,'” Vanderpump told ET back in July, explaining her decision to walk away from the series after a tough season. She added that she didn’t “regret [leaving] at all.”

“What I regret is the fact that my exit wasn’t as positive as some of the wonderful moments I’ve had on the show,” she clarified. “But sometimes it’s just what life throws at you, isn’t it?”

Following Thursday’s casting announcement, Camille Grammer also revealed that she will not be back for season 10. “I wasn’t asked back,” she tweeted, claiming Richards made the decision to cut her. “It was was up to Kyle. I’m really fine. After the reunion, I didn’t want to come back.”

Keyshia Cole’s Mom, Frankie Lons, Has Passed Away

Published

on

Frankie Lons, the vibrant mother of singer Keyshia Cole, who became a popular figure after appearing on Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is in 2006, has passed away.

News of her death surfaced on Monday morning (July 19). Cole’s younger sister, Elite, who appeared on The Way It Is as well, confirmed the sad news. She took to her InstaStories to write, “Worse pain ever….to see my mama in a body bag on her birthday! My heart so f–kin broke.”

According to Cole’s brother Sam, said Lons relapsed and overdosed at her home on Sunday while celebrating her birthday.

Last year, Cole shared that Lons, who struggled with drugs off and on, checked into rehab and in February would have been there for 30 days. She was hopeful that her mom would finally be able to stay sober and be as healthy as possible for her children.

“Do you believe in the power of love?” she wrote alongside a photo of her next to her mom.”What about lack thereof? 50/50 There’s strength in knowing there’s something or someone you can always lean back on. Someone to catch u when u fall. I’ve been being strong for you, hoping I’ll get a chance to feel that feeling from you.”

Cole and her older sister, Neffeteria, haven’t spoken publicly on the news. During Cole’s latest reality series on BET, Keyshia Cole My New Life in 2019, the singer and Lons had a conversation about the possibility of her not being around, which Cole said, understandably, alarmed her.

“Some things happen out there in the streets and it scares a child, the thought,” Cole said.

“One day chicken the next day feathers. If I die today you’re going to move on and you’ve got to make it. You’ve got to live for Keyshia,” Lons replied. “You have to live for you and your family not nobody else. You don’t have to do nothin’ but die and pay taxes, but you have to move on if anything happens to me. At the end of the day you’ll see me later. Up there.”

She added, “I’m a be always where you can find me. Even when God calls me. A mother’s love will always protect you.”

Spike Lee Apologizes After Accidentally Announcing Top Cannes Prize Winner at Start of Show

Published

on

“It took a lot of suspense out of the night I understand, it wasn’t on purpose,” said the director.

As with most awards ceremonies, the Cannes Film Festival likes to build up to the winner of its biggest award, the Palme d’Or winner. Alas, that wasn’t to be the case with Spike Lee on hand.

“I have no excuses,” Lee, this year’s jury president, said in a press conference. “I messed up.”

He then tried to make a sports analogy to compare his slip to, adding, “I’m a big sports fan. It’s like the guy at the end of the game in the foul line, he misses a free throw, or a guy misses a kick.”

Others might compare it to the 2017 Oscars when “La La Land” was erroneously announced as best picture over the actual winner, “Moonlight.” At least in this case, Lee only killed the suspense and announced the winner early, rather than assemble the wrong cast and crew on the stage only to send them off and replace them.

Maybe it was a language mix-up, or Spike just misunderstood her use of “first prize” in French to refer to the top prize of the night, rather than the first prize to be presented on the night, for Best Actor (Caleb Landry Jones, “Nitram”).

Instead, though, Lee quickly blurted out that Julia Ducournau’s “Titane” had picked up the Palme d’Or, to the shock and horror of his fellow panelists.

Hilariously, Spike almost did it again (though everyone already knew the winner thanks to his first flub).

Taking to the stage at the proper time for announcing the Palme winner, he said, “In 63 years of life I’ve learned that people get a second chance, this is my second chance. I apologize for messing up. It took a lot of suspense out of the night I understand, it wasn’t on purpose.”

But then he almost announced the winner again before the evening’s hostess, French actress Doria Tillier, evening stopped him so that Sharon Stone could come out and do what she was there to do … announce the Palme d’Or winner … that everyone already knew.

Perhaps Lee was just excited that Ducournau is only the second female — and first solo female — in history to win the honor, coming 28 years after the win for “The Piano” and Jane Campion. That year, she shared top honors with Chen Kaige’s “Farewell My Concubine.”

Lee said that the organization took the error well, telling him to “forget about it.” He later joked about it, talking about what an honor it was to be on the jury. “This year, especially, after COVID-19. This is historic. Besides me f—— up, this is historic.”

You can check out the complete list of winners below:

Palme d’Or: “Titane,” Julia Ducournau

Grand Prix: “A Hero,” Asghar Farhadi & “Compartment No. 6,” Juho Kuosmanen

Best Director: Leos Carax, “Annette”

Best Actress: Renate Reinsve, “The Worst Person in the World”

Best Actor: Caleb Landry Jones, “Nitram”

Jury Prize: “Memoria,” Apichatpong Weerasethakul & “Ahed’s Knee,” Nadav Lapid

Best Screenplay: “Drive My Car,” Ryusuke Hamaguchi

Camera d’Or: “Murina,” Antoneta Alamat Kusijanovic

Palme d’Or, Short Film: “All the Crows in the World (Tian Xai Wu Ya),” Tang Yi

Special Mention: “Ceu de Agosto,” Jasmin Tenucci

Honorary Award: Marco Bellocchio
