Garcelle Beauvais Addresses Rumors of Feud With Sutton, Hints at Drama With RHOBH Newbie Diana



Garcelle Beauvais Reveals Why She Returned for Season 12, Addresses Rumors of Feud Between Her and Sutton, and Hints at Drama with Newcomer Diana Jenkins

Garcelle Beauvais recently emerged from quarantine after contracting COVID. Two of her castmates on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Erika Jayne and Lisa Rinna, also tested positive and were forced to stop filming.

Now that she’s back, Garcelle is busy as ever, hosting her talk show, promoting a new book, and filming for the current season of RHOBH.

In an interview with The Weekly Scoop with CJ, Garcelle said season 12 had a “rough start” because of COVID.

Last year, Garcelle considered not returning to the show after a contentious season with other castmates.

The host asked why she eventually decided to come back. “I’m not a quitter,” said Garcelle, and she admitted that she enjoys “most” of the job.

Her good friend Sutton Stracke also told her, “‘Don’t you leave me with them.’”

“It’s the hardest job I’ve ever done,” said the actress. “Because I can’t hide behind anything. I can’t hide behind a character… It’s challenged me… It’s given me a little tougher skin.”

CJ then addressed rumors of a feud between Garcelle and Sutton.

Garcelle denied the rumors, but she confessed, “Sometimes [Sutton and I] may have quarrels, but nothing everlasting… We’re good.”

Concerning her new book, Garcelle revealed, “I share some things that I hadn’t talked about, that I think will be very intriguing… It was cathartic… It was hard at times. Sometimes we had to take a break because I talk about some emotional things.” The star explained that she “certainly did not” have a perfect life.

Garcelle also revealed “there’s definitely a chapter” about the Real Housewives.

She also shared that her son Jaid was recently taken to urgent care, and he sustained an injury “last Friday. We were watching [his basketball] game and they were playing so well and all of a sudden he went down and he was in so much pain and then we took him to urgent care.”

He seems to be OK now, and he’s using crutches to recover.

Garcelle was hesitant to answer questions about her dating life (“Why are you asking me this?” she asked the host), but she eventually opened up.

“It’s a little tricky. I go back in forth. I have a love/hate relationship with the apps. I’ll be trying them and I’ll be like, ‘It’s just not for me’… I feel like the right person will come along when it’s supposed to happen.”

She then teased a little drama with one of her castmates, but she said she couldn’t reveal too much or Bravo might “kill me.”

“We got a new girl,” she said, after a mysterious laugh and a long pause. “Diana Jenkins… Her and I — We hit a bump. That’s all I can say.”

Not all of her experience with the cast was bad, however. She said Sheree Zampino has “been fun” and “Kathy [Hilton]‘s back!… Let me tell you, she comes back and she does the ‘Kathy’ thing.”

Viewers will surely understand more about these cryptic comments when the season airs.

#AhrealSmith: Suspect Arrested For Abducting Black Virginia Woman Whose Whereabouts Remain Unknown, Reward Offered For Info



#AhrealSmith: Suspect Arrested For Abducting Black Virginia Woman Whose Whereabouts Remain Unknown, Reward Offered For Info

A Black woman in Heathsville, Virginia, went missing last week and her whereabouts are still unknown despite the fact that police have arrested a suspect in her abduction. Take a good look at her photos and tell police if you’ve seen spotted her.

According to the New York Post, 50-year-old Tyrone N. Samuel has been arrested and charged with the abduction of 28-year-old Ahreal Smith, a clerk at the Clarenville Little Sue Store where she was last seen around 9 p.m. Wednesday via surveillance footage.

From The Post:

She was spotted on surveillance footage leaving the store to start her car around 9:05 p.m. before returning inside, police said at a press conference.

At 9:18 p.m., she was seen getting in and then getting out of a different car in the parking lot. Police interviewed the driver of the car and have determined he is not a suspect.

After she got out of the car, she walked back inside, set the alarm, locked up and picked up a bag of trash and began walking toward a dumpster on the side of the store, where she could no longer be seen on security cameras.

She has not been seen since. The next morning, police said the day shift clerk found Smith’s car still running in the parking lot. She was last seen wearing a black Nike hoodie, blue jeans and brown Ugg boots. She has multiple tattoos.

Without revealing how the suspect is connected to Smith’s abduction, Northumberland County Sheriff Johnny Beauchamp announced Sunday that Samuel was arrested and that Ahreal “remains missing at this time and we continue to investigate her whereabouts.”

According to Fox 4, Smith’s older sister, Lydia Smith, told reporters that before Ahreal went missing, she had texted her about a strange person outside the store where she works.

“She said that someone at the door made her feel uncomfortable,” Lydia said. “She never really said a name, but she said that someone, you know, made her feel uncomfortable.

But not that she was afraid. When she went to that trash like the last look on her face was her normal self. Her demeanor was calm. Somebody was waiting and they snatched her.”


Beauchamp said during the press conference that Virginia State Police used a K-9 unit to track Smith’s scent from the dumpsters outside of her store, but the dogs lost her scent after tracking it for about 100 yards down a nearby road. Investigators believe she got into another car that wasn’t seen in the surveillance footage.

In Beauchamp’s statement, he urged citizens to “continue to send any information you may have or heard about Ahreal’s location to the Sheriff’s Office” which they could call at (804) 580-5221. The reward for information in locating Ahreal Smith in Northumberland County is now up to $9,400.

We hope and pray that Ahreal is found safe and returned home.

Emily Ratajkowski Debuts Bangs In Backless Shirt — Before & After Photos Of Her Hair Makeover



emily ratajkowski

Emily Ratajkowski looked fabulous when she debuted a brand new hairstyle featuring front bangs while rocking a backless metallic silver fringe top.

Emily Ratajkowski, 30, always looks fabulous no matter what she wears or how she styles her hair and that’s exactly how she looked when she debuted her new hair makeover. Emily posted two photos to her Instagram with the caption, “Twenty twenty too,” – one was of her sexy outfit and the other was an up close photo of her new hairstyle.

Emily has been rocking long black hair for years, but we were completely surprised when she showed off new front bangs that covered up her entire forehead. In the first photo, Emily posted a mirror selfie rocked a low-cut, metallic silver sparkly top that had a square neckline that revealed ample cleavage.

The entire top was cut out in the back and on the sides, while the front of the shirt had long fringe tassels that flowed down to her ankles. She styled the top with a pair of low-rise baggy black straight-leg pants.

Meanwhile, in the second photo, Emily was pictured leaning over the sink in the outfit while her new hairstyle was on full display. Her brown hair was down in loose waves with a ton of volume on the top while her bangs hung over her face and feathered out. She topped her look off with a sultry smokey eye and a matte nude lip.

While we are not certain if the bangs were clip-in or not, we absolutely loved them and think they suited her face shape perfectly. If there’s one thing for sure about Emily it’s that she’s always switching up her hairstyle. Whether it’s a super sleek bob, a short lob, or even platinum blonde – she is definitely not afraid to experiment when it comes to hairstyles.
