Publish date:

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie, Garcelle Beauvais recalled the moment she found out that her then-husband had been having a five-year affair behind her back.

"Mike Nilon and I were married for nine years. We were sort of like the Hollywood couple. I'm an actress, he's an agent, we'd go to fabulous parties, we had two boys," Garcelle said in a confessional. "Mike was reliable; he was sweet. I really thought this was my last stop."

She continued, "One day nine years ago, I said, 'Hey Mike, can I use your phone'" recalled Garcelle of her own drama. "I look at your phone and see a text that says, 'I love you.' I say, 'What's this?' and his face changed. He said, 'I've been having an affair.' I said, 'How long?' and he said five years."

She explained, "I'm a hot head, so that night I wrote an e-mail to friends and colleagues at Mike's work and the subject was 'What does Tiger Woods, Jesse James and Mike Nilon have in common?'" she continued. "And that e-mail got leaked to the press."

Garcelle went on to say that she now enjoys a great co-parenting relationship with her ex, and hopes that her bringing it up on the show does not change that.
