Bravo is taking no time in filling Lisa Vanderpump’s pumps.

The network announced Garcelle Beauvais as the newest cast member of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills for it’s upcoming 10th season on Thursday.

And the actress – famous for roles in The Jammie Foxx Show and NYPD Blue – said she was ‘excited and proud’ to be a part of the popular reality program. 

‘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,’ the 52-year-old told The Daily Dish

‘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!,’ she added.

Black Girl Magic is a movement that was popularized by CaShawn Thompson in 2013 . The concept was born to ‘celebrate the beauty, power and resilience of Black women’, as described by Julee Wils for HuffPost.

Beauvais and Sutton Stracks have been named the lastest cast members as Vanderpump bowed out after being on the show since it began in 2010.

‘Already being intimately familiar with the spotlight of Hollywood, my journey of successes and trials has already been chronicled and shared with my many loyal supporters around the world,’ continued Beauvais.

‘The continual encouragement, support and yes, even at times, criticism, have helped make me the dynamic woman I am today. I’m excited to share the many ongoing daily surprises, laughs and joys of being a working mother in today’s crazy world. 

‘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!’ she explained.

Beauvais was born in Haiti and started her career as a fashion model. She soon landed small roles on Miami Vice and several sitcoms.

Her first starring role was in the short-lived Models, Inc. in 1994.
