“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Garcelle Beauvais shared her thoughts about her former castmate Crystal Kung Minkoff leaving the Bravo series.

In an April 17 Instagram post, Minkoff revealed she will not appear in RHOBH season 14. Reality Blurb reported that Beauvais discussed Minkoff’s departure from RHOBH during an April 20 interview with Access Hollywood. The “Spider-Man: Homecoming” actress stated she was upset about the situation. Beauvais also shared she messaged Minkoff when she first heard rumblings that she would not film for RHOBH season 14.

“I was shocked by the news. And somebody sent me the post. And I forwarded it [Minkoff] and I said, ‘Tell me this is not true.’ And then she goes, ‘I was going to call you.’ And I go, ‘What are you trying to say?'” said the actress as she mimed texting on her phone.

Beauvais said that Minkoff then called her to confirm her departure from RHOBH.

Beauvais also stated that she believed the 41-year-old made an impact while filming RHOBH season 13, which premiered in October 2023.

“I’m bummed. Because I feel like she was just getting her voice. I’m really disappointed,” said the mother of three.

The 57-year-old also stated she believed leaving RHOBH is “bittersweet” for Minkoff. In addition, she suggested she would have kept Minkoff on RHOBH if she made casting decisions for the series.

“It’s a tough show, as you know. And you know, Bravo makes their decision. I have nothing to do with casting,” continued Beauvais.
