IF there’s one thing the Beverly Hills cast never lacks, it’s drama.
In season 10, Garcelle Beauvais joined the hit show Bravo, and her sons are now a central part of the drama in season 12 between Beauvais and Erika Jayne.
Who are Garcelle Beauvais’ children?
Garcelle Beauvais, 55, is a Haitian-American actress, Bravo TV personality, author, former model, and mother of three boys.
Beauvais wrote in a blog post for People, “As much as I love what I’ve achieved as an actress so far, I have to say that being a mother — with all its challenges and rewards — has been the best role of my life.”
Beauvais had her eldest son, Oliver Saunders, 31, from her first marriage to producer Daniel Saunders.
She wrote in the same blog post that a divorce ended after her marriage to Saunders; She thought her “baby days” were over until she met her second husband, Mike Nilon.
The two tried to conceive for several years and eventually turned to IVF treatments to conceive.
Treatments were successful and the couple welcomed twins Jax Joseph and Jaid Thomas Nilon into their lives in 2007.
Marriage to Nilon ended in 2010 after he admitted allegedly having a five-year affair.
Oliver currently resides in Las Vegas where he works for one of Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurants.
Vanderpump said in a July 2022 interview, “He turned out to be a gift.”
“He was great, so I put him in my restaurant, you know, Caesars Palace… and he’s great. I really like it.”
The 14-year-old twins were the focus of drama in season 12 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as was their big brother Oliver.
What’s Erika Jayne’s Beef With Garcelle Beauvis’ Son Jax?
While it likely stems from his mother’s past drama with Erika Jayne, Jax found himself in the midst of controversy after clips from Beauvis’ birthday party showed RHOBH star Crystal Kung Minkoff asking Beauvis if she would like to take the flowers from the party when she did she went.
Beauvis said yes, and 14-year-old Jax ran to get them for her.
That’s when Erika Jayne started yelling at the teenager.
She yelled, “Wait, what are you doing here?”
Then, as he was gathering the flowers for his mother, she yelled at him again, this time becoming obscene.
She yelled, “Get the fuck out of here, get the fuck out of here, get the fuck out of here before you get in trouble!” Go away!”
A shaken Jax followed the rest of his family out the door, but then he broke down to his mother and told her what Erika Jayne had just said to him.
He said, “I just got hurt because I got the flowers,” followed by an account of what Erika Jayne had said to him.
Beauvis then confronted Erika Jayne about what she said but eventually left the party.
What happened between Erika Jayne and Beauvis’ son Oliver Saunders?
This wasn’t the first incident Erika Jayne stirred up with one of Beauvis’ sons at the party.
While all the ladies were sitting on the couches chatting earlier in the evening, Erika asked Jayne Beauvis, “Where’s your hot son?”
She then said, “Do you know why? I have nothing to lose,” possibly referring to her divorce from husband Tom Girardi.
Then Erika started addressing Oliver directly.
She said: “Oliver you’re hot come here we asked.”
Oliver replied and simply said, “Thank you.”
Erika Jayne then started showing Oliver with her leg in the air and asking if he was married.
When Dorit Kemsley replied that Oliver was committed and had four children, Erika Jayne replied: “Have your baby mama contact me via my DM; we can get it in three ways; Everything is good.”
In a video confession after the incident, Beauvis said it wasn’t appropriate for Erika Jayne to hit her son and that she needed to reevaluate what was going on in her life.
How did Garcelle Beauvis react to the incidents?
Beauvis posted a photo of her three sons to Instagram the same day the episode aired.
She has 1.1 million followers on the social media app.
The caption read: “This is a tribute to my sons Oliver, Jax and Jaid. You guys make me so proud…you are loving, kind and respectful. You show people respect even when they don’t deserve it. Respect is a reflection of your character, not theirs.”
The photo was one of Christmas, of the three sons wearing Christmas pajamas.
