Garcelle Beauvais and Lisa Rinna faced off during Wednesday night’s first installment of the four-part Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, but where do they stand today?

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Garcelle offered an update on their relationship before dishing on Erika Jayne‘s sudden use of the word “alleged” and admitting to being hypocritical when it came to her comments toward Dorit Kemsley.

“Did you feel more closure with her as you left [the reunion]?” host Andy Cohen asked Garcelle on the October 13 episode of WWHL.

“As I left that night, yes. I felt like, ‘You know what? Clean slate,'” Garcelle replied.

On Wednesday’s episode, Garcelle mentioned that she had heard that Lisa was trying to keep race discussions off the show. And looking back, Garcelle admitted that her addition to RHOBH “changed the dynamics.”

“We were talking about things that have never been brought up on the show. So I do think a little bit of it is like, ‘Let’s just stick to the entertainment. Let’s not talk about race,’” she explained.

In addition to having discussions about race amongst the group, the ladies of the show were also consumed by the legal scandal surrounding Erika and the claims of embezzlement against her and her husband, Thomas Girardi.

“It’s a little disturbing,” Garcelle admitted of the drama and Erika’s frequent use of “allegedly” at the reunion. “I mean some of the stories she would say, she told us before and then she’d come back and say ‘alleged.’ It’s like, ‘You said it, how can alleged be implied?’”

According to Garcelle, she was “sympathetic towards” Erika amid season 11 even though she wasn’t always buying into what she was saying.

“I don’t know if I believe all of it,” she admitted.

Later, during the WWHL: After Show, Garcelle was confronted by a caller who pointed out that she accused Dorit of beating a dead horse and refusing to let things go when she did the same with the situation involving Denise Richards.

“That is very interesting,” Garcelle replied. “I guess you can say, yes, I guess so. But the Denise thing was really important to me because she’s been a friend for a long time and I just felt like Rinna could’ve let the other girls go after her but she could’ve been a little bit more gentle.”

After Garcelle then admitted that the reunion taping was “long,” Andy joked that he was in need of an IV of tequila after the filming.

“I find [Erika] to be a fascinating character to talk to, she’s like a character from a movie. We were talking earlier about what a rollercoaster of emotion she is,“ Andy recalled.

“I agree with you,” Garcelle replied. “One minute she’s lashing out, the next minute she’s crying, the next minute she’s laughing. It was really fascinating to watch.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11 reunion continues next week with part two on Wednesday at 8/7c on Bravo.
