Early Life

Garcelle Beauvais was born on November 26, 1966, in Saint-Marc, Haiti. Her mother, Marie-Claire, was a nurse, and her father, Axel, was a lawyer. When Garcelle was 3 years old, her parents divorced, and at the age of 7, Beauvais and her six elder siblings moved to the U.S. with their mother. Garcelle attended elementary school in Peabody, Massachusetts, and when she first arrived in the U.S., she only spoke Creole and French. Beauvais learned English by watching "Sesame Street."


When Garcelle was 16, she moved to Miami to pursue a modeling career. She told the "Tokyo Journal" in 2015, "I knew the lead girl in a Black is Beautiful commercial and I decided to drive to Fort Lauderdale without an appointment and see if the agency she was with would consider representing me. As I was driving, I stopped at a red light and put on lipstick while looking out the window at the mirror. Then this hand came in the car and startled me. It was the person who had stopped behind me and by chance she was the owner of the agency that I was on my way to see without an appointment." Beauvais worked for that agency for a year or so, then she moved to New York City, where she signed with Ford Models and lived with the agency's founder, Eileen Ford. Garcelle later worked with Irene Marie Models, and she appeared in fashion shows for Isaac Mizrahi and Calvin Klein.

Personal Life

Garcelle married producer Daniel Saunders in 1991, and they had a son named Oliver that year. After Beauvais and Saunders divorced in 2000, Garcelle wed CAA talent agent Mike Nilon on May 12, 2001. Beauvais and Nilon welcomed twin sons, Jax and Jaid, on October 18, 2007, after the couple underwent five years of treatment for infertility. Garcelle filed for divorce from Mike in May 2010, a month after he admitted that he had been cheating on her for the past five years. The divorce was finalized in April 2011. After Beauvais found out about the affair, she sent an email to Nilon's colleagues at CAA, writing, "I found out today that MY husband of almost 9 yrs has been having an affair for 5 yrs with some slut in Chicago. I am devastated!!! And I have been duped!! Our boys don't deserve this!"

Garcelle suffers from eczema, and in June 2022, she spoke to "People" magazine about her experience with the chronic inflammatory skin condition, stating, "I was in my 30s when out of the blue I started getting these patches on my skin and they would be really itchy. I didn't know what it was β€” like, 'Did something bite me?' It just kept coming up in different places, and the more I stressed about it, the more they'd come out. I didn't know what to do." Beauvais added that she does her best to stay away from perfumes and scented lotions and avoids taking hot baths but that the stress of filming "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" sometimes causes breakouts.

Award Nominations

In 2022, Beauvais was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Host in a Talk or News/Information (Series or Special) – Individual or Ensemble for "The Real" alongside Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, and Jeannie Mai Jenkins.
