Actress Garcelle Beauvais has starred in the hit Bravo series The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the tenth season. during one April 2022 appearance in the podcast “Las Culturistas”., co-hosted by Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers, Beauvais spoke about a brief relationship with Will Smith, who was married to fellow RHOBH co-star Sheree Zampino until four episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in 1995. The 55-year-old also clarified that she started casually seeing the ‘King Richard’ star following his divorce from Zampino, the mother of his eldest child Trey Smith.
“I was naive, he was single and a TV star, so we went out a few times, it wasn’t a long-term relationship,” Beauvais explained.
She then shared that she stopped dating Smith when he saw his now-wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
“I remember phoning him one day and he was in the car and his son was in the back with Sheree. You know, he picked up the car or Bluetooth or whatever it was back then or the speakerphone, whatever it was and he said, “Hey, how are you?” And I said, ‘I’m great.’ I heard that little voice in the background saying, ‘Is that Miss Jada?’ And that’s when I thought, okay, I’m not the only one who left the stage,” said the Bravo star.
The mother-of-three then explained why she chose not to fight for a serious relationship with Smith.
“If a kid knows someone, that person is a little bit more important,” Beauvais said.
