You know, with all the insanity that has surrounded the Great Skull and Crown Offering of 2014 courtesy of Kyle Richards, Carlton Gebbia, Brandi Glanville, and Lisa Vanderpump, it's really sad that necklace-gate has overshadowed the fact that Joyce Giraud lost her father. Not only was she going through a difficult time while filming, she has to relive it again as the series airs…while her friends consume their time with Wiccan-hating, TMJ, tacky jewelry, and larva cursed computers. Just a day in the life of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I guess!
Of course, Joyce is also giving us her take on Monday's episode. She begins her Bravo blog, "I want to thank you all for the cyber friendship and the support you've given me through this journey called Housewives. I also want to take advantage of this platform to answer something lots of you have been asking. For those who've asked me on social media how I feel about the fact that Brandi uses every chance she can to try to disrespect me, all I can say is that she is a classless person who thinks everything she says is OK and funny. Apparently she has no friends to tell her that making racial remarks, backstabbing all her fellow Housewives, making horrible remarks about other women (Joanna Krupa and Kenya Moore), and talking crap in all the interviews that are meant to be about her book are not OK…Sorry Brandi! Your card is overplayed and you have zero comedic timing! You are not funny and since I learned to take things from the source…Knock yourself out and keep proving me right."

Discussing her afternoon with Splits, Joyce shares, "This week we begin with Carlton talking to Yolanda [Foster] about how much she hates labeling and judging. Slightly crazy, since she's the first one to label everyone, and she's the first one to judge others simply for asking her questions. I don't know what she has been through in life, but at this point I feel sorry for her paranoia."
She explains, "Kyle came to my house to tell me about the disaster dinner at Lisa's. Then she showed me something that mysteriously showed up in her computer and was slightly freaky. She was concerned about Carlton's negativity so I told Kyle she should talk to Carlton about it. I gave her some holy oil my mother sends me all the time so she could put it on and feel blessed," adding, "At that point Brandi and I had no problems (or so I thought). That's why when Kyle told me she had invited her on my Puerto Rico trip I was fine with it. Had I known what she was planning and all the crap she was talking behind my back, I would've told her she was NOT invited."
Of Brandi and Kim Richard's spray-tanning extravaganza, Joyce reveals, "Watching Brandi talk to Kim, yet again, was a bit frustrating. If she had such a strong, negative feelings about Lisa, and if she was so scared of her she should've spoken directly to her face instead of telling everyone over and over except the person in question — especially considering the fact that she prides herself in being 'honest.' But we all know by now that's just her perception of herself, but that there is nothing honest about her."
Luckily, Joyce doesn't weigh in on necklace-gate when dishing on the evening for Gigi. She writes about her absence from the party, "As you all now know; the reason I have been so MIA in the past few episodes is because I was going through a very difficult family moment. I was flying back and forth from Puerto Rico to be with my father in his final days, to be able to say goodbye and to grieve with my family."
It sounds as if Joyce may be learning her lesson about ol' Kaftan Kyle as well. She concludes, "The only person in our group that knew what was going on was Kyle, as she was the one I was closest to. I must say I was very upset and disappointed when she decided to tell the other girls, as I had asked her to not say anything to any of them. I DID NOT want my father's death and my grieving to be a topic and I for sure didn't want a pity party from the other girls. Initially I wanted to cancel the trip, but I won't go into further details as you will all see it in next week's episode."
So Kyle divulges things she's asked to keep in confidence? Shocking.
