Actress and Garcelle Beauvais can now add daytime talk show host to her repertoire. The 53 year old has been announced as the newest co-host of “The Real,” according to Variety.
Beauvais reportedly will join the syndicated talk show following the departure of Tamera Mowry-Housley, who announced her exit earlier this summer after six seasons on the show.
