Joyce Giraud and Brandi Glanville do. not. like each other. According to Joyce the two initially started off friendly-ish but then Brandi began stirring the pot and manipulating behind the scenes by using Joyce as the scapegoat.
First of all, Joyce says she had no intention of fighting with Brandi in interviews and on blogs while the show was airing. "When filming ended we were all in a better place and then after that she just started attacking again on social media," Joyce recounts, "which I think is crazy."
"I understand the dynamic of the show, and that it's dramatic and all of that," Joyce clarifies. For Joyce this season and filming with Brandi was a surreal experience with a lot of learning moments. "I've never dealt with behavior like hers before – it's just something that I wasn't used to," she explains.
Joyce also insists that the two started off getting along, but since all roads lead back to Richards their fighting started with Kyle and Kim.
Joyce Giraud is really getting off on the wrong foot with co-star Brandi Glanville. The two have been at odds since day one. Following this week's argument at Lisa Vanderpump's dinner party the two are still enemies.
"The entire table was defending and making excuses for Brandi's behavior, and while I do find it admirable to stand up for your friends, true friends also stand up when someone is being attacked for no reason," Joycewrites. "Being a good friend doesn't mean you have to always agree with someone's bad behavior."
Aaaahhh… Brandi Glanville. I've almost run out of things to say about the mess that has become Brandi. It's sad at this point. She was always rough around the edges, but it's become abundantly clear that she's pretty much rough all over!
Brandi is still making excuses for her behavior this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I wonder if she can't keep her mouth shut because she needs to open it constantly to insert wine – or her feet. In her latest Bravo blog she continues to place blame and point fingers at Joyce Giraud. These two need to stop talking about each other already. Let's hear what she has to say!
First up Lisa Vanderpump is to blame. Even though Lisa is ruining her reputation trying to be a good friend to Brandi this season, that's still not enough apparently!
"Lisa having a dinner to bring Joyce and I together is ironic because the whole reason we don't get along is because of Lisa and the Hairgate situation." How is that Lisa's fault – JOYCE chose to confront Lisa after Brandi instigated… "Lisa asked me to act as if Joyce didn't exist and now she is throwing a dinner for us? It's all so perplexing."
Things picked up at SUR where Brandi Glanville and Joyce Giraud were bickering up a storm about everything. If you could interpret through the litany of F-bombs and hair flips you might have heard Joyce tell Brandi she needs rehab.
All of the sudden Brandi starts tearing up and claims she just really misses her dog and needs to leave. She flees the table under the protective lemon force field of Yolanda Foster. So, now Brandi is blaming all her of her maltreatment of Joyce on a dog? I thought Kim Richards got the dog storyline this season?
Back at the table Joyce is unsympathetic. While Lisa Vanderpump and Ken try to smooth it over, Joyce snaps that Brandi shouldn't act like a "stupid little bitch" if she doesn't want people to confront her. Amen, Joyce, amen. Yolanda returns and is all "but Brandi is very sad". She's having a hard time. Lisa, visibly stressed out, calls for dessert – emotional eating time!
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.
