Meet Carlton Gebbia, the newest cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's a 40-year-old interior architectural designer, the mother of three children—Destiny, Mysteri, and Cross—and a pagan witch.
First of all, if there's one thing you should know about Carlton, her "thing" is "don't fuck with [her] children's names." Considering that Mysteri is 10, she's probably been taking a ton of shit for that decision for the past decade, so it makes sense that she's touchy about it.
Anyway, Carlton is here to educate Bravo viewers (or at least those who read the network's website) about her "beautiful, harmonious, and positive religion" in which she "harnesses natures energy."
I am pagan witch. Yes witch! My grandmother practiced, and I am a solitary practitioner, have been for decades. I never belonged to a coven because we moved so much, but I think covens are essential to a community. I have taken traditions from Wicca and British Traditional Witchcraft to cultivate my own spiritual path. I celebrate the cycles of the sun, moon, and seasons.
And although she states in the beginning of her blog that she doesn't like to talk about politics or religion, she goes on to discuss her religious beliefs at length.
I am polytheistic. I believe in goddess and a god. I believe that within us lies those deities.
I believe in the power of prayer, candles, crystals, and the earth's natural energies. They are a gift from Mother Nature and work with our vibrations. I believe in the holistic power on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I am not nor have I ever professed to be an authority on this but what I practice and believe in works for me solely!
As a practicing witch residing in Beverly Hills, it only makes sense that she has an incredibly goth(ic) mansion. (Check out her Cribs-esque tour of her abode.)
In case you needed any further evidence as to why she is your new favorite Housewife, Carlton loves animals and is currently writing a horror script.
