Garcelle Beauvais is the newest co-host of The Real, Variety reports. 

The news comes just weeks after longtime co-host Tamera Mowry-Housely and newcomer Amanda Seales announced their departures from the Emmy-award winning daytime talk show. 

The 53-year-old actress and model will join current co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Houghton when they kick off season seven of The Real on September 21. 

“I am thrilled to be joining the dynamic, bold and diverse women on the award-winning talk show The Real,” she said. “My love for pop culture and news, blended with my natural gift of gab, has always made me gravitate towards a talk show environment.”

Beauvais is best known for her roles in Coming To America, The Jamie Foxx Show, and NYPD Blue. 

Her most recent role was on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where she made history as the first Black cast member. She has also made appearances in Spider-Man: Homecoming and the CBS All Access series Tell Me a Story.
