Well, Brandi Glanville's "edit" just keeps getting better and better with each week of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' doesn't it? Gracious, girl, do you watch yourself and take any responsibility for your actions? Wait, I already know the answer to that! After watching the confessionals of Brandi and her make-out partner Carlton Gebbia on Monday's episode, Joyce Giraud has a lot to say about the women's tacky behavior (I mean, seriously, getting drunk before Kim Richards' daughter's big night?) from Kimberly's graduation party to lunch and awkwardness at Lisa Vanderpump's abode.
Taking to her Bravo blog,
Jacqueline Joyce begins, "This week's episode was quite interesting for me to watch as I discovered hypocrisy at its maximum exposition. At the beginning of the episode it was interesting to see Carlton and Brandi in their element at the pole dancing. I can understand why they like each other so much," adding, "What I can't understand is how in the world was Carlton so offended that my husband joked about having a naked room when our babies grow up — yet this is pretty much her main storyline? How was she so offended when I spoke about my husband's manhood, yet she does the exact same thing? I wonder if she is getting inspired by the very same things she hates about me and decides to do them? Too much double standard, especially for someone who claims to be so spiritual and to love women." I have often wondered that myself!

Of Brandi's barftastic antics at Kim's house, Joyce blogs, "Kimberly's graduation party was simply stunning. I spoke a lot with Kim about it, and I know how much work and love she put into it. That's why when she told me to dress for the theme (Hawaiian) I decided to put a little effort into it for her. So Carlton, save your opinions on my wardrobe because I for sure DO NOT need any fashion advice from you. And as always, you smile to my face and then talk crap in your confessionals." Isn't that the nature of the show? She's watched it before, right?
She writes, "I thought it was very tacky for Carlton and Brandi to show up slightly drunk, eat a burger at the curve before even greeting the host, and for Carlton to go fishing for booze when she knows Kim is a recovering alcoholic. (You can drink in front of her — she is strong and can handle it. But you don't go to her home to ask for alcohol.) Frankly it was good they left because the rest of the night was fantastic!" I couldn't agree more. I know it's hard, but try to have one sober night, ladies!
Joyce continues, "Brandi was voicing that she believes the difference between her and I is that I settled with my husband. If settling is finding the love of your life, a man who loves you and respects you, a man who will stand with you through thick and thin, a man who makes you feel like a queen every day, a man you love to see when you wake up, a man you love to share your life with…I could go on and on. If that's settling than I can happily say that I settled and I would do it all over again."
Discussing her conversation with Brandi at Lisa's, Joyce explains, "I believe in this week's episode you can see the real difference between Brandi and I: I am happy and I love life. After our conversation, the moment she apologized I really thought we could have a clean slate and move forward. I truly believe in forgiveness and know it is a very liberating way to live life, but sadly it seems I was fooled by Brandi. Her true colors came out. I was shocked to see that after I hugged her and she hugged me back, she goes on to say in her confessional: 'Don't touch me. Ewww, don't come near me.' On top of it, she then says we can agree to disagree. This was not about a disagreement, you asked for forgiveness and said you are sorry. But perhaps you don't know what a real sorry means." I'm not sure I was watching the chat she thinks she had with Brandi. She couldn't have possibly taken Brandi's apology to be genuine, could she?
Concluding, Joyce opines, "Before meeting her, like many others, I thought she was an honest girl that 'says it like it is.' But this is her character: a true hypocrite. I never want to hear anyone talk about how 'honest' Brandi is because she has proven to be the TOTAL OPPOSITE!"
To be "honest," I actually agree with Joyce for once!
