More than a year since her split from her husband Mike Nilon, Garcelle Beauvais is back onscreen on a new TV series called Franklin & Bash (premiering on TNT Wednesday at 9 ET/PT). 

“I really wanted an ensemble cast so that I wouldn’t have to work every day so I could be with the boys(twins Jax and Jaid, 3) says the actress of her new television show.

“Now that I’m sharing them with their dad, I don’t have them all the time, which is the biggest disappointment of my life,” continues Beauvais, who also has a son, Oliver, 20, with her first husband. Regardless, “we’re making lemonade out of the lemons we got.”

While it’s not easy juggling her career with motherhood, Garcelle says that she tries to live in the moment.

“Women feel so much pressure to multitask all the time,” she says. “I’m trying really hard to be in the present and not be worrying so much about what I should have done or what I’m going to do.”

  1. In understand he was not faithful, but that does not mean he should not be able to see his children? Either way, if the marriage ended in an “amicable” split, they would be in the same situation. Just because she was betrayed, does not mean the children should miss out on their father being present in their lives. That’s what scorned-women do…being selfish without realizing. It’s no longer about you, when children are involved.

  2. I love her soooo much! She is soo beautiful and preofessional, her and halle and holly Robinson are my fave celebs. Her twins are cute and I love Jax and Jaid for boys names.

  3. Show premeirs tonight but no mention of Garcelle till now.

    As long as she keeps putting her kids first, she’ll be fine. He will reap what he sowed.

  4. Didn not know she was going to be on a new show until I just saw the preview earlier today. It comes on tonight so I’m going to set my dvr it looks pretty good!

  5. I like Garcelle and I will look out for her show. Good for her. I know it is not easy, but as long as she remains dignified she will be just just fine. The nerve of him. Pig.

  6. Good for her. I am happy she is not being malicious since he betrayed her, children should never have to pay for the mistakes of adults. And while a woman’s natural instincts may be to make men suffer for the pain they caused, it is only hurtful to the children. Kudos to Garcelle, I know it’s difficult but he will get what’s coming to him.

  7. After what he did I give Garcelle props for getting along with him for the sake of her boys. That shows she has great character. Halle take note you could learn a lesson or two.
