Actress Garcelle Beauvais is covering this week’s edition of Jet magazine. The 44 year old star of the TNT dramedy “Franklin & Bash,” talks candidly about losing her mother, becoming a single mom and picking up the pieces after discovering her husband had been having an affair for five of the nine years they were married.
On her feelings when she discover her husband cheating:
I couldn’t believe this was happening to me. Not because I am special, but because I have such high regard for people, especially the people in my ife. When I love, I love deeply. When I trust, I trust deeply. I wasn’t this wife that was in complete denial. I think he presented himself a certain way that allowed me to have full faith in him.
On moving forward and future outlook:
I’m an optimistic person by nature…I cannot believe that this has happened to me and there isn’t something better coming my way. Life takes you where you need to go. There’s gotta be hope otherwise there’s no reason to get up the next morning.

Garcelle Beauvais has landed a starring role in the upcoming TNT dramedy “Franklin & Bash.” The mid-season replacement, with no official release date as of yet, was filmed earlier this summer and revolves around two very different lawyers (Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin) who join a struggling law firm in an attempt to turn it around. Garcelle will be play a partner in the firm, as well as the love interest of Breckin.

Garcelle was also spotted last night attending the amfar Inspiration Gala in Los Angeles, California.
Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon best known as Fancy on the Jamie Foxx show is the latest victim of a cheating spouse. E Online reports that Garcelle who has been married to agent Mike Nilon for nine years and the mother of his twin boys discovered her hubby had been double dipping for five years of the marriage. His side piece resides in Chicago. Garcelle sent an email to his co workers and let them know of his dirty deeds. Garcelle also released a statement saying she is all about protecting her boys from the fallout of the affair. Garcelle is a beautiful woman. I wonder what the mistress looks like. Let’s hope this isn’t another case of Skankitis per Tiger and Jesse.
Since the 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on Tuesday, flattening buildings and leaving hundreds of thousands of people dead, injured and homeless, the Hollywood community has been active in reaching out to those in need. One of the many to do so has been Garcelle Beauvais, who is herself Haitian born. The actress, who came here as a child, appeared on Larry King earlier this week and pleaded with American to do all they can.
“It’s really hard to take. It’s really hard to watch. I mean, seeing the one picture of the baby covered under the rubble, because they couldn’t get to it… Those are my people. Those faces are my family. The worst is not knowing.”
Moreover, like many, she’s questioned her faith in recent days:
“You have to question faith, in a way, you do. I mean, you don’t understand, especially a place like Haiti. We’ve been hit so hard by lots – why would this happen? I don’t know. This is the country that deserves this the least – not that anybody deserves it. But we are resilient and we are proud. Even if we have nothing, we are very, very proud. It’s unfortunate. It’s devastating.”
And like fellow native Wyclef Jean, she’s appealing to people to contribute to relief efforts:
“I want people to give anything they can. I know it is tough times for the United States. But give anything, Red Cross, Oxfam. Anything you can do would really be helpful.”
Actress Garcelle Beauvais’ rep confirmed to People Magazine that the actress and her husband, Michael Nilon, welcomed twin boys into the world on October 18th. Jax Joseph Nilon and Jaid Thomas Nilon both weighed in at just under five pounds and were delivered by cesarean section. Garcelle is best known for her role as Fancy on The Jamie Foxx Show but made headlines earlier this year when she posed for Playboy while three months pregnant.
It seems Garcelle Beauvais is following in the footsteps of another Black actress, Stacey Dash, and is taking it all off for the pages Playboy Magazine. According to Playboy’s Cyber Club, Garcelle has posed for the August issue of the men’s magazine which hits news stands at the beginning of July. Garcelle is probably best known for her role as Fancy on the Jamie Foxx Show. The sista however started her career off as a model and I believe she has been on the cover of Essence magazine more times than any other model. Garcelle ruled the pages of many Black fashion magazines before she set her sights on Hollywood in the late eighties.
Rihanna is quickly becoming a paparazzi favorite. If this girl so much as sneezes the cameras will be there to catch it- and who can blame them when the sista leaves her house looking this cute. This green thinga-ma-jig is absolutely gorgeous. I love it.
Today’s random celebrity sightings post consists of some of my favorite brown sistas. From Janet Jackson to Melyssa Ford, we have Black Women from all walks of Hollywood life covered. First up however is Keyshia Cole who held her album release party last night. Keyshia is sporting a new shorter do that I really like and it reminds me quite a bit of Rihanna’s new shorter style. Hopefully both these ladies will usher in a less in more look for celebrity sistas when it come to their hair.
