*She was a little girl growing up in Haiti performing shows for her family 30 years ago.

Now, all grown up, gorgeous and famous, Garcelle Beauvais shares her journey from the small country to Hollywood in an exclusive talk with BET.com.

“Coming from Haiti, growing up the way I did, I’m doing things now I never dreamt I would be able to do,” she said. “Being on television was out of the question. I didn’t know you could do that for a living! My siblings, who used to tease me all the time, look at me now and say, ‘Okay, I didn’t know it would turn out like this!’ So that’s fun.”

Living her dream the actress takes on a role in TV Land’s “The Exes,” as Donald Faison’s love interest. He’s the typical womanizer, but finally meets his match when he meets Garcelle.

Speaking of exes, she said she has one regret about her very public relationship with ex-husband and talent agent Mike Nilon.

“My only regret about that is that it was leaked to the press,” she said. “That wasn’t the intention. It was a time I was really hurt and emotional and shocked, so it was coming from that place. But now I’m a different woman. And I’m actually grateful for all the experiences I’ve had in my life. It’s part of my journey.”
