In “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season 12, episode 10, Garcelle Beauvais mentioned Erika Jayne’s inebriated behavior at her 55th birthday party. She told her castmates Kyle Richards and Sheree Zampino that she believed Jayne could be delving into alcoholism. During season 12, episode 13, Beauvais also shared that she felt the “Pretty Mess” singer has “to figure out” her alcohol consumption while taking antidepressants after hitting her head the night of Diana Jenkins’ holiday party.

During an August 2022 episode of her podcast, “Two Ts In A Pod,” alongside her co-host Tamra Judge, former “RHOBH” star Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave shared her thoughts about Beauvais’ reaction to Jayne. The Bravo alum questioned the “Coming to America” star’s comments regarding Jayne’s drinking habits. 

“If somebody is truly concerned for somebody’s amount of drinking, is she reaching out off camera. Is she being there for her as a friend?” asked Arroyave. 

Judge then shared that she believed “Garcelle is doing her job” as an “RHOBH” cast member. 

“If we were filming together and you were drinking a lot and I had to come to you and say ‘you’re an alcoholic’ — but first I would go behind your back and tell all the girls that you have a drinking problem,” joked the “Real Housewives of Orange County” star. 

Arroyave then chimed in that she believed Jayne’s castmates should check on her well-being if they are genuinely concerned for her. 

“But if you weren’t checking up on me and being like how are you doing and making an effort, then I would be like you don’t actually really even care if I’m an alcoholic. You’re just trying to stir it,” said the former “RHOBH” star. 

Judge seemed to agree with her podcast co-host. 

“Those are big words — diagnosing someone with a disease or whatever like you shouldn’t do that,” said the reality television personality.

In “RHOBH” season 12, episode 12, Jayne got intoxicated at Diana Jenkins’ holiday party. During an August 2022 episode of the “RHOBH After Show,” the “Pretty Mess” singer explained why she decided to drink at the party. 

“It’s Christmas and I was sad. If you want to know the truth and that’s a lot of it too. It’s Christmas, and everyone’s celebrating and everybody has family and I’m standing here like the f*** do I have, so except a good time so that’s what I did. I had a good time and then I remember Lisa [Rinna] walking me out and I’m like ‘no, I’m fine.’ And she’s like ‘no you aren’t,’” said Jayne. 

She also noted that she usually does not drink in social situations with her “RHOBH” co-stars. 

“I have always been the most in control, uptight, and tightly laced – PK [Kemsley] was like Erika, ‘you’re such a good time’ and I was like, ‘yeah, I know.’ ‘Where has this woman been?’ And I was like, ‘no, this is the real me.’ They’ve wanted to see this and then they got a big dose and they were like okay calm it down,” stated the “RHOBH” personality.

Jayne spoke about her decision to drink while taking prescription medication during the production of “RHOBH” season 12 in a May 2022 interview with Entertainment Tonight. She told the publication: 

 I definitely mixed medication with alcohol, and I’ve been very upfront and honest about that. I also wanted to have a good time, and sort of numb that feeling of pressure and that judgmental heavy stuff that was coming down. A problem? No, certainly not. But let’s be honest, some of these ladies, their company’s rather boring. So you do need to spice it up a bit. And that’s exactly what I did. And I think that they should be grateful that I came in here, personality plus.

I honestly do not believe Garcelle or Sutton truly care about what is happening in Erika’s life or situation.
The last episode about Sutton mentioning that a lawyer reached out to her in regards to a case Erika is being tried in, and Erika literally looked at her and said, “I told you to stop talking. I told you they would come after you if you didn’t shut up.” Was beyond accurate. They thought they could attain information from Sutton because of how many times she opened her mouth. She didn’t really question, she just went behind Erika’s back to state how she was scared of her name being associated with her. Which she was ultimately the reason it was! And Garcelle, LORD, she is a pot stirrer. I really want to like her, and generally I do, but she is Sutton’s side-kick and while Garcelle spends so much time defending her actions (Sutton), she is blinded and doesn’t realize Sutton has thrown almost every member of the cast under the bus she was driving. Garcelle is a wonderful woman I think, but Sutton does bring her down. And leaves a bad taste and distrust in a lot of peoples mouths. I pray they resolve this, and that Garcelle attempts to reach out more in a genuine way, just like she basically coerced Rinna to do with Denise Richards.

Sutton invites the bad energy towards her. She literally is self-serving. She doesn’t genuinely care for any of the girls aside from Garcelle and that’s only because Garcelle always has her back. She even treated Kyle poorly after Kyle rented Sutton her house. Now that she moved out she’s been kind of bitchy to Kyle. And simply enough, Sutton is insensitive.

Gravelly was doing her job and maybe if her white cast mates and I’m talking about Rinna, Kyle, and Dorite. Erika is a ticking time bomb Dorite and Kyle only address her behavior in confessions other than that nothing. The fact they don’t think it was anything wrong with the comment she made about Sutton as a liability and if Garcelle keeps sticking up for her they will never be her friends is ridiculous. That’s mean girls at it’s best Also the way they talked about Crystal eating disorder making suggestions behind her back that was okay. In the end white woman always defend each other and Garcelle have to defend herself since she’s the only black cast mate. She’s been called a bully and now a liar again they don’t say anything about their friend behavior unless it’s in confessionals. I’m team Garcelle and until those 4 white mean girls walked in her shoes they shouldn’t pass judgement He’ll Lisa Rinna said Dorite and friends was doing coke in her bathroom but that’s okay when a white woman say it it’s all forgiven. We need another black cast mate that’s not afraid to speak up and not Shari
