Garcelle Beauvais unwinds with dinner and a stiff martini alongside Sutton Stracke… after taping RHOBH reunion
Garcelle Beauvais was spotted heading to a celebratory dinner following a long day taping the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion.
The 54-year-old actress and TV host was seen arriving at Boa Steakhouse in West Hollywood where she was joined by castmate Sutton Stracke.
They were certainly ready to unwind with stiff martinis and dinner, after host Andy Cohen shared that reunion was ‘still going’ at 8 p.m. PST, and teased that it would be full of drama.

Garcelle was seen sporting her reunion glam and an eye-catching red jumpsuit which was strapless with very flared legs.
The Real co-host paired the look with red heels and carried a black tote bag with her as she entered the popular restaurant with a smile.
And though the Bravo reunions are known to cause a lot of friction between castmates, Garcelle proved that she and Sutton were still thick as thieves as they enjoyed the meal together.
Not pictured at the dinner were other castmates Erika Jayne, Crystal Minkoff, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Dorit Kemsley and Kathy Hilton.

Sutton was seen wearing blue jeans and a white patterned button down as she held a cosmopolitan in hand.
Cohen had shared glimpses of the day on social media as he wrote: ‘About to film the most highly anticipated reunion in years. Gonna be a long, fascinating day.’
And well into the evening he teased ‘It’s gooood,’ while revealing that the cast was still in the midst of taping.
As the explosive 11th season of the Bravo show centered around Erika Jayne and estranged husband Tom Girardi’s very high profile embezzlement case — which is still ongoing — the reunion is sure to be action packed.

The nuances of Erika’s financial situation and the Girardi Keese bankruptcy were unfolding while cameras were rolling, and it has been reported that producers are turning over all footage to aid in the legal case.
After it was revealed that the former pair had misappropriated funds meant for victims in order to fund their lavish lifestyle — which Erika claimed to not know about — the estranged couple have been in a legal sinkhole.
The steady stream of bombshell information divided the cast, and it currently stands that Erika says her ‘only true friend on the show,’ is Lisa Rinna.
The latest developments in the ongoing case include Tom being federally disbarred in California and Erika being sued for the $25M spent on her lavish lifestyle over the course of 12 years using client funds.
The reunion is projected to air on October 6.
