Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is still very much a thing. And the upcoming
10th season is going to see a bit of franchise history being made. Actress-model Garcelle Beauvais,
from “The Jamie Foxx Show,” “NYPD Blue,” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” is going to be the
show’s first black housewife in the cast. Progress, it seems, comes slowly when it comes to 90210.
Along with another newcomer, party planner and fashion-store owner Sutton Stracke, Beauvais
will join Lisa Rinna Kyle Richards, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, Dorit Kemsley, Denise Richards,
and Erika Girardi in the reality-drama-comedy-satire-HGTV hybrid.
“As the first African American Housewife in the Beverly Hills franchise,” Beauvais said in a
statement, “I am honored and humbled by this awesome opportunity to exemplify the fact that
Black Girl Magic lives and thrives in every zip code!”


Q.I met “Jane” and “Louis” two years ago.
Jane and I work together and quickly became
good friends — she even called me her “work
wife.”
Jane and Louis introduced me to my boy-
friend, “Charlie,” who I’ve been dating now for
over a year. They have been friends with Char-
lie for several years.
Jane and Louis got engaged earlier this
year. Charlie received an invitation to the wed-
ding. However, the invite didn’t include a
“plus one.” When Charlie asked them about
this, they said, “Sorry, no girlfriends are al-
lowed, only married couples.”
One, I was shocked and hurt that I’ve been
reduced to only being Charlie’s girlfriend,
when I thought I was also good friends with
this couple.
Two, I’ve never heard of this rule. I under-
stand not wanting to pay for random dates at
your wedding, but my boyfriend and I are in a
serious relationship. We’ve attended other
weddings together.
Charlie still plans to attend this wedding,
and I would never ask him not to.
Should I just assume it’s a budget issue and
let it go? Or do I have a right to be upset and
re-evaluate our friendship?
SIDELINED FRIEND
A.My standard position is to advise people not
to take things personally. However, and unfor-
tunately, this does seem personal, and quite
awkward.
You know this couple well. They thought
enough of you to introduce you to your guy.
You are the bride’s work wife, for goodness
sake!
True, wedding receptions are very expen-
sive. Many marrying couples follow a guide-
line to only invite couples to their wedding if
the couple is married, engaged, or living to-
gether, but this guideline is often stretched to
include committed couples, and/or “plus-
ones.”
You are wise to take the high road. I hope
their wedding and marriage goes well. Your
marriage to your work wife might be in trou-
ble, however.

Q.Our closest friends are always, I repeat, al-
ways late. Usually they are 10 minutes late,
give or take a couple of minutes. Over the
years they have been late as much as 30 or 40
minutes.
The wife in this couple is the main reason

for the lateness, 95 percent of the time. This
past week they were 30 minutes late, and we
were leaving when they pulled up.
Unfortunately, I’m not much for waiting.
So I was upset, and we didn’t have such a great
time. Now, she is mad at me for getting mad at
her for being 30 minutes late!
Wow. What do we do now? If she calls fine,
but we are not going to call to check on them!
Am I so far off base to expect a little respect
and being a little more considerate? I have
talked to several other friends, no names men-
tioned, and they all say that she is just plain
“rude and inconsiderate,” and that her time is
more important than ours.
What is your take on this?
VERY TIRED OF WAITING
A.Like you, my personal clock seems perma-
nently set to “Let’s go!”, and so I well under-
stand the frustration of dealing with people
who always run late.
However, at some point it really is your job
to find a way to cope with a pattern that is
quite predicable and (evidently) unchanging.
Unless you are about to miss the opening
curtain at the theater or are hopping on the
space shuttle together, you could mitigate the
effect on you by adjusting their “start time” by
10 minutes or so, taking separate cars, or by —
yes — calling them when you feel anxious to
check on their exact ETA.
They are being inconsiderate. They are be-
ing rude. It is appropriate for you to express
how frustrating this is for you. But if their
rudeness is going to cause you to sulk for an
extended period, or ruin your own good time,
then you shouldn’t spend time with them until
you can find ways to control your reaction.
And no — she does not have the right to be
mad at you for being mad. That’s just her way
of deflecting her own discomfort over the
trouble she caused.

Q.“Lonely” was an older married woman
seeking romance online. I was glad you
warned her about “catfishing” and told her
never to send money to these scammers.
I wish you had told her to get out and meet
actual people through volunteering.
FAITHFUL READER
A.“Lonely” definitely needed to step away
from her computer. Great advice. Thank you.
