Beauvais has spent the last two years single, reserved and busy and in a recent interview with People, the star talks more about not being interested in settling for love. During RHOBH season 11, the star met a dating coach and leaked information about herself and her love life. Talking to the dating coach, Beauvais revealed that she finds it difficult to trust someone completely and she also finds that problems arise in her relationships due to her autonomy. But Beauvais’ conversation with People suggests that she is more interested in enjoying life as it is right now, than spending her time looking for a life partner. She says, “I don’t want to bring in just anybody as a seat filler. I really want this to be the person. I feel like we put so much pressure on women to have a man, get married, have kids. Can we just live our lives?

The actress also opened up about her divorce from Nilon and how her affair affected her. Along with feeling angry, the star felt confused and hurt upon finding out she was being cheated on, and it took the star a while to realize that her husband’s infidelity was unrelated to she. She also explained why she got divorced and decided to co-parent instead. “One of the reasons I didn’t stay married was because I didn’t want to change my mind. This is my only chance in life. And I didn’t think it would be fair for my children to live with a mother who has so much anguish.” Beauvais worked on a memoir titled love me as i am, which details the journey of his life and all that he has offered him. For Beauvais, she felt that writing the book was a form of therapy and placed her in a peaceful place that allowed her to share.
