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."
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star reveals she has finally achieved her weight loss goals after going on a sugar-free diet. “I eat almost no sugar,” Kyle, 45, tells Life & Style. “I’ve lost about 7 pounds since last season.” Doesn't wine count as a sugar?
With her new body, Kyle isn't planning to skip bikini times on RHOBH anymore. “I’m only 5-foot-2, with big boobs and a butt, so it shows!" she gushes. "I feel confident about my body now. I don’t hide behind a towel in a bathing suit.”
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."
When she learned the news, Camille was determined to beat the disease head-on, undergoing a radical hysterectomy. It was while she was recovering from her surgery that her boyfriend allegedly attacked her. If that wasn't enough, Camille was subjected to multiple rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. Now, thankfully, there appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
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.
Love & Hip Hop returned after a two week break to a much smaller audience. Only 2.386 caught Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz discussing their relationship – that's down over 500,000 since early December and nearly a million since early November. Will it bounce back in January?
