Joyce confesses to People that she is surprised by her experiences because as a fan of the show prior to joining she definitely had preconceived opinions that turned out to be completely wrong!
"I'm not gonna lie and say I never watched the show. I did watch the show," Joyce admits. "It's a guilty pleasure."
And because of that Joyce went into it believing the ladies would act a certain way. "For example, I thought Kyle [Richards] was gonna be a terrible person, but I really like Kyle," Joyce acknowledges. "I thought Brandiand I would get along great. I thought 'Wow – this girl is honest. I love honest people.' And actually, I couldn't dislike her more."
She's either changed her tune after viewing episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or she realized during filming that Brandi Glanvillewas a trashy trainwreck. I think it's a combination of both. After chastising Joyce Giraud for defending herself during this week's dinner party, which she calls a "fiasco", Lisa is now acknowledging the error of her ways.
"This week, when I was talking to Ken in the rose garden (I have to say one of my favorite tasks), I explained to him that I was coming to the slow realization that my chastising Brandi was of no use," Lisa shares in her Bravo Blog. "It was pretty redundant in its outcome. It was also having ramifications on our relationship. The playful banter had taken a different direction."
As the evolution in her relationship with Brandi continued, Lisa realized some other things as well.
On this week's episode she got into it with Joyce Giraud at a dinner party and got accused of being from Planet Trash. Brandi also got caught saying "get me another drink before I murder a Puerto Rican."
Joyce has already called Brandi out for racist comments on previous episodes of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, for which Brandi has apologized, but this isn't helping Brandi's case much in proving that she actually is sorry.
Brandi is also incensed by Joyce's comments about weight and wonders if the former beauty queen may have an eating disorder. I'm sure Joyce will be in a tabloid denying this in 3…2…1…
Anyway, let's see what Brandi has to say in her Bravo blog about the latest mashup! First she explains why she was frustrated that Joyce started speaking Spanish at Kyle Richard's fashion fitting.
Aaaahhh… Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. There comes a time in every recappers tenure when she is just beyond blown away by what appeared before them on the screen. And taking one's mother-in-law to Hustler and grinding on them has knocked me over.
Carlton Gebbia takes her hubby David along with her mother-in-law to Hustler to choose lingerie for her "playroom". Listen – I mean the storyline is gross as is, but you couldn't pick a classier place than Hustler?
Carlton is like thongs – no big – my mum-in-law has pulled babies out my vagina. Then she proceeds to educate MIL on what "DTF" means and huffs the F— word in the ladies face like she's going to vampire her. This is a preclude to the main event where Carlton puts on a teeny-tiny bikini and drops it like it's hot on her MIL's lap. Apparently her MIL accepts Carlton because David loves her. David needs inpatient therapy.
Taking to her Bravo blog, she begins, "Burlesque room…I am sooo excited to do this surprise room for my husband. Our home is so open plan with very few doors, so not much room for privacy with our kiddies. With this room at least we are home, but safely locked away downstairs. I want it to have a burlesque feel with a platform, as David loves to watch me dance so this would be perfect. Years ago I used to dance (ballet and modern mainly). I love to make our relationship fun and sexy, and, 18 years later, I think we've done a pretty good job."
Joyce starts off on Yolanda's dinner party, "At the very beginning of the episode we see Yolanda saying "I'm almost 50 years old. We don't do teams. She then adds: "We are not in high school." Wouldn't it be great if she could keep her word. . . Yolanda says she wanted to go out of her way to make her dinner beautiful — and she did prepare a dinner with fantastic food, a stunning setting, and excellent performers." She circles back to these words later in her blog.
Yolanda Foster is planning a dinner party to honor HER KING. It's David-galore and all about David. I wonder what flowers David likes? Probably the ones that bloom in his presence – he is quite miraculous that way!
On the other side of town in a poor, sad subdivision where normal people who don't have houses built on a foundation of Grammy awards and or a fridge made of diamonds spun from the hair of virgin, albino Persian cats, Brandi is searching for her poor lost dog Chica. Awww… poor Chica. While Brandi annoys the bejesus out of me – and adding to that annoyance is the presence of Kyle in a pirate-themed Kaftan from Kylene By Too Many Kraptans - I totally understand the loss of a pet.
