According to Heavy, the "Spelling" actress made headlines back in April 2010 after she publicly accused her second husband, Mike Nilon, of infidelity. At the time, Grace sent an email to all of Nilon's colleagues and friends. She wrote in the email: 

". . . I found out today that MY husband of almost 9 yrs has been having an affair for 5 yrs with some slut in Chicago. I am devastated!!!! And I have been duped!!

Years after her "very" public divorce, the "NYPD Blue" actress recounted how she felt during her tumultuous marriage. As reported by Bravo TV, just this year, Beauvais made a milestone achievement after she joined the all-white reality show, "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." 

According to her, being part of these sets of high society, women would create a platform to show off the "black girl magic."

In a part of her first episode on the show, the "Wild Wild West" actress made it known that she was ready to move on while sharing that she is a "hothead" and that led to her famous email.

Madame Noire shares that Grace likened her marriage to Nilon as the typical "Hollywood marriage" because she was an actress, and he was a talent manager. 

She recounted how sweet and blissful her matrimony was until the day she found a love text from another woman on his phone.

After nine years of marriage and two sons with Mike Nilon, the star actress filed for divorce and also settled for joint custody of their sons. 

According to ABC, Grace's marriage to Mike might not have turned out well, but the two worked out a suitable parenting style for their then 6-year-old sons.

The "Franklin & Bash" actress came from a family where her parents were divorced, and she lived with her mom.

This created a rift between her and her father, and Grace didn't want that to happen with her sons. Therefore she and her ex made sure to give their sons enough attention when they were at either parents' home.

Bravo TV shares that presently, Beauvais is a grandma who devotes her time to family while updating fans about her life on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
