Rochelle Aytes (born May 17, 1976) is an American actress and model.She is best known for her role as April Malloy on ABC drama series Mistresses (2013-16).
From 2010 to 2011, she had a recurring role in the ABC series Detroit 1-8-7 as prosecutor Alice Williams, until her character was murdered in the episode "Key to the City", which aired on January 11, 2011.
In 2012, Aytes was cast as one of the four leads, along with Alyssa Milano, Yunjin Kim and Jes Macallan, in the ABC drama series Mistresses about the lives of four female friends and their involvement in an array of illicit and complex relationships.
However, things turned sour between the two housewives around 2015 when Brandi claimed that Lisa had “used her” and they quickly became foes.
Brandi was subsequently not asked to return for another season of Beverly Hills and later claimed this was probably because she told the Real Housewives producer Andy Cohen to “f*** off” on television, via email and Twitter. She also set up her podcast Brandi Glanville Unfiltered in 2013 and has continued to host it post-Real Housewives.
Aytes has partnered with Donor See, a charitable giving platform that lets you give directly to specific needs and see raw video of how your money changed someone's life.
Aytes has supported building a well in rural Malawi, Africa.
Queen bee and native Brit Real Housewife Lisa Vanderpump took Brandi under her wing and took her side during the many feuds Brandi got into with other Housewives.
Lisa even set up a face-to-face meeting between Brandi and her restaurant employee Scheana Marie over her affair with her ex-husband Eddie.
Eddie’s acting credits include starring in Baywatch Nights, Sunset Beach, Third Watch, The Playboy Club and Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse.
The pair lived together in a luxury mansion in Calabasas and had two sons together – Mason (born 2003) and Jake (born 2007).
She is 44 years old and was born on November 16, 1972 in Monterey County, California.
