Garcelle Beauvais has explained why she didn't pay a promised $5000 to charity.
The 53-year-old was called out by her Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills co-star Kyle Richards for the errant payment during the season 10 reunion that aired Wednesday on Bravo.
And later that day, the reality star took to her Instagram Stories to 'say my piece'.
Saying her piece: Garcelle Beauvais has explained why she didn't pay a promised $5000 to charity
'I want to take a few moments to say my piece, if you will,' she began.
'You guys know that I'm a straight shooter. I say it like it is. I try to speak my truth always.'
'I got called out at the reunion of Beverly Hills, saying that I bid for a charity event and did not pay for it. I hope you guys know better than that,' the mother-of-three continued.
'It innocently fell through the cracks,' said Beauvais, before offering that she was 'traveling all over the world last year' as an excuse for the non-payment.

The Haitian-American actress continued, 'Why wouldn't I pay for something that I bid? This is my character. This is my integrity. I don't play around when it comes to things like that.'
'There, I said it, and now let's go on with the show,' she concluded.
During the reunion, Kyle had done some straight shooting of her own when she confronted Garcelle with her accusation.
'You came to my charity event, and raised your paddle to donate $5,000 to Children's Hospital Los Angeles, and never paid,' said the 51-year-old.
'What?' Garcelle yelped in response, leaning forward. 'That is not true. You better watch what you're saying.'
She stressed that something must have gone wrong, and later sent an email to her business manager to check on the payment.

It was not the only time host Andy Cohen elicited drama from a beef between the pair.
Garcelle had said several times on the show that Kyle 'glazed over' what she was saying in conversations, and intimated that she was the least welcoming of the housewives.
She amended that during the reunion by insisting that she'd never said Kyle was horrible to her, and joking that she made the last comment after drinking and forgetting other names.

Denise and Dorit Kemsley, 44, agreed that Kyle could sometimes make the other women feel like what they had to say was unimportant, and Kyle apologized.
To Garcelle, Kyle added, 'It felt like you were picking a problem with me that was disingenuous. You were never there; we had no time to bond.'
When Kyle added that Garcelle had not been nice to her, Garcelle said, 'Stop. I've seen your tweets,' as a nasty one appeared onscreen.

'Garcelle snickering that my outfit is hideous while wearing stretchy purple knee high boots with a pink suit dress… that her stylist picked out for her,' Kyle had written.
Andy asked Garcelle how it felt being 'the first Black housewife of Beverly Hills,' and Garcelle replied, 'It's really cool. I mean, it's always great to be the first anything, right?'
She revealed that she had felt pressure to come in and 'just snap at everybody,' noting, 'We're labeled angry women a lot, Black women, because we are outspoken, we're strong. And sometimes I hate that word 'strong,' because it makes people negate my pain.'

Andy reminded Garcelle that she'd said the RHOBH cast might be afraid of 'Black social media coming for them' if they made a wrong step with her, and she stood by that, saying that because she was Black, her role in show disagreements might be seen as 'a racial thing.'
'I never felt like that,' Kyle said. 'If I had had an issue with you, I would have addressed it.'
Touching on current events, Garcelle said she'd always spoken to her 12-year-old twin boys about racial injustices and urged them to be careful and respectful with the police.

Months before the reunion, she had been pulled over by police with her son Jax in the backseat.
'I was so happy that Jax actually got to see my interaction with the police,' Garcelle affirmed. 'Obviously, I was respectful, I had my hands on the wheel, ten and two; I said, ''I'm reaching for my wallet.'' And it's interesting you know because when I say this to my other friends, who happen to be white, they're like, ''Wow, would someone like you have to do that?'' And I was like, ''Absolutely, someone like me. It doesn't matter what my resumé said, or what I've done.''
She marveled that it had taken COVID-19 for everybody to 'be still and to watch George Floyd, and to be able to get things to finally change. And I feel hopeful, but it's still been like… It's been a long time coming.'

Kyle said she'd spoken to her daughters about what was going on, and Garcelle said she'd be happy for her friends to ask her questions so they could 'grow from it' as a group.
Erika, whose son is a policeman, acknowledged that Garcelle was the first person to reach out to her about him after protests started happening.
Meanwhile, Lisa Rinna angrily accused Denise Richards of 'gaslighting' her castmates during the reunion.
Lisa, 57, vented her fury at Denise, 49, for her repeated criticisms of the cast.
Above all, she couldn't let go of the fact that Denise had chastised them for discussing threesomes during a barbecue at her house, within earshot of her kids.

Lisa quickly reminded Denise that she'd shared plenty of her own dirty stories on camera.
'You bring up your husband's penis almost every show,' she yelled, referring to a remark the actress made about her husband Aaron Phypers, 47, at that same dinner.
'I think she was trying to make us as a group look bad,' Erika Girardi, 49,
