Garcelle Beauvais will always be “Fancy” in my mind but she had gone through so much since those days.
The actress, probably best known for her role on “The Jamie Foxx Show,” has continued working and growing through the years, taking on small roles here and there and being photographed taking her sons on playdates with her friend and fellow actress Halle Berry.
But her most important role in the past few years has been that of a single mother, a new role since her split with her husband last year. In the latest issue of JET Magazine, Garcelle gave her thoughts on her husbands’ infidelity saying:
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 life. 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.
The affair first made gossip sites last April after The New York Post’s Page Six got wind of an email Garcelle had sent around with the subject title: Tiger Woods/Jesse James/Mike Nilson. In the email, the actress reportedly wrote:
“What do they have in common…I found out today that MY husband of almost 9 yrs has been having an affair for 5 yrs. I am devastated!!!! And I have been duped!! Our boys don’t deserve this!”
It’s been a tough year but Garcelle says she is hopeful about the future:
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 will be staring on TNT’s new sitcom “Franklin & Bash” on TNT this summer.
