Former Jamie Foxx co stars Jamie Foxx and Garcelle Beauvais during a recent episode of Beauvais’ sex and relationships podcast, Going to Bed with Garcelle opened up about their longtime friendship and how they were pretty much into each other but somehow it was never meant to be.
The duo even though they had mutual feelings decided not to take it further until the show wrapped. By the time the beloved sitcom which aired from 1996 -2001 wrapped up, Beauvais said she was already in a committed relationship with someone else.
“I seen you with the dude, you introduced me — ‘This is my man,’ and it was all uncomfortable,” he said as Beauvais laughed.
“By the way, you never really give any guy that I’m with any real attention,” Beauvais responded. Foxx, agreed, bluntly saying, “Ever. I hate them all,” Foxx joked. “I think me and you should have been together. So every time I see them, I’m like, ‘Damn. I f—ed up.’ So every dude, I give them a really s—y look.”
Beauvais didn’t hold back and went on to reveal a very intimate secret about Foxx, which according to her is part of the reasons why their relationship never quite panned out.
“You know what I always say? Kandi Burruss was on the podcast and she goes, ‘You know, I don’t get it. Why aren’t you and Jamie together?’”, Beauvais tells Foxx. “And I said, ‘Well, you know, we have a really great relationship now.’ And then I said, ‘He’s also hung like a horse. What would I do with all of that?!’”
Foxx during the chat also explained how difficult it is to maintain a relationship while being in the public eye. “Somehow, being a celebrity, they feel like you’re not human, and we do have things that are afforded to us or rewarded to us because we are [celebrities],” he said. “But on the inside, we’re still the same people from Texas or from Haiti.”
Towards the end of the episode, Foxx and Beauvais spoke about the possibility of doing a Jamie Foxx Show reunion. “People are chomping at the bit for us to get back and do something,” said Foxx. “So if there’s a way for us to do something — and not just no cameo — but a way to come together … and be a real thing. And I don’t mean way down [the line], I mean soon, we could do something that would be dope.”
