Garcelle’s career has spanned over 20 years and she is fancy and faithful to her career, constantly refining her skills, creating new avenues, and exploring different roles that specifically speak to her. As the newest co-host added to The Real, Garcelle sparks as the new queen of media and gives us insight into Coming 2 America.
