Brandi Glanville’s Open Letter To Joyce Giraud And RHOBH Fans

BH

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville took to Facebook to write a letter about her relationship with co-star, Joyce Giraud. Brandi has received a lot of backlash for telling Joyce she could not swim on their Palm Beach getaway because she was a ‘black person.’ In her open letter, Brandi takes responsibility for her behavior and admits she was a “bitch” to Joyce.

“This last episode of Real housewives of Beverly Hills was extremely difficult for me to watch. I am not going to even mention my baby dog Chica’s situation because it is just to sad and hard for me to relive,” Brandi writes. “But otherwise yes I am very embaressed [sic] for my behavior and take full responsibility for over indulging. I was a bitch to Joyce for reasons you don’t get to see on the show.To the viewer It looks like I am just acting bitchy towards her for no reason, but trust me I have my reasons. However for Joyce who has only been around me a handful of times, never been to my home, never spent time with my children, never hung out with me outside of shooting, to label me the way she did and continues to do, is incredibly irresponsible and hurtful. I made one very insensitive and inappropriate comment that I have profusely apologized for. I in no way live with any sort of prejudice in my life of any sort. I got drunk around Joyce maybe 2 and a half times the entire season long, and twice in the public eye this past year. Once on my birthday and once after I turned in my second book, I was celebrating both times, my children were at their fathers and I’m not going to make apologies for those times. Joyce’s ongoing comments, accusations and labels have endangered my family and cost me jobs, and opportunities. As a single mother, supporting my two little boys and running a household by myself I hope Joyce feels really really good about what she is doing to my family as she sits a top her mansion with her giant diamond ring and zero worries.”
“During the filming of this season there is a defining moment when you will get to see the exact kind of person Joyce truly is and trust me its not pretty. I can only hope that the show decides to air it because not everything we shoot makes it in,” Brandi says. “By the end of filming for the season Joyce and I were actually on good friendly terms and went on our separate but merry ways. I saw Joyce once after filming was completely over. My mom, children and I walked into a sushi restaurant for dinner and ran in to Joyce and her husband and to my surprise our filming crew… let me just add that sometimes we have to shoot pick up scenes after the show has wrapped so that certain story lines make sense. I stopped at their table kissed Joyce and her husband hello, made a little small talk introduced them to my mom and my children and then went upstairs to have our family dinner. Im sure you can imagine my shock when watching this Mondays upcoming episode and see that scene they were shooting in the restaurant and Joyce is going on and on about my inappropriate comment and labeling me a racist and relaying their mutual disgust for me. Wow!!!!! She really is an actress and I don’t really see how this scene was needed to make sense to our show. Sadly it seems this and the other labels Joyce throws my way are her only story lines for the season. I really wish she were more interesting so that trying to ruin my life wasn’t her only storyline. This coupled with the fact, that although we were on good terms at the end of filming, the second any press would listen, Joyce was giving interview after interview about me needing rehab or me being prejudice or anything me and all negative. This speaks volumes about her need for attention her vicious ambition and her true colors. I really hope this woman can stop obsessing over what she thinks my issues are and focus on the help she needs to get for herself. Enough said -have a beautiful Holiday season.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Oh Brandi please shut up. You are never at fault. Maybe we need to see some scenes where you are saying things about others that never get aired. You are the true “mean girl”. You are vicious and petty and immoral. What do you mean “supporting two kids” ? I am sure you are getting plenty of child support from the X. Grow up and see a really good psychiatrist and please go to rehab as even your producers want you to do.

    • Elizabeth

      I soooooooooo agree with Aunt Bee…couldn’t have said it better myself!

  • Dixie

    That’s not what I call taking responsibility! Rather she played the victim and blamed others for her current problems!

  • Nah. Not Joyce. This is all you chicky. You are you’re own worst enemy.

  • yaya

    Brandi, suck it up! You started the ugliness towards Joyce, nothing absolutely nothing constitutes spewing racial comments and base it on overndulging. Even if Joyce turns out to be a real annoyance, I credit that behavior on You for spewing hateful remarks to every single housewife with the exclusion if the tattooed witch, you could not do no wrong when it comes to her. So, suck it up and deal with it, Joyce should’ve kicked your a$$ a long time ago verbally, you are deserving of nothingless. Oh and happy holidays to Eddie & LeAnn.

  • Aunt Bee

    Dear Yaya, Sara and Dixie. – so glad you see Brandi for what she is: a very very DUMB BLOND who will always be 13.

    Brandi
    You are so full of yourself….them poor boys what an image you portray for them….you are nothing but a drunk and pill popper …oh yeah forgot of blame that on your ex too grow up and act like mother

  • Sue

    Brandi, your comments were beyond inappropriate and if you do not see what you did wrong then there is really no hope for you. In a previous post, you mentioned your kids are multiracial as their father is of Cuban heritage. Well I don’t know the name of your children, but imagine someone speaking to them in a disparaging tone and telling them they aren’t Latino or Cuban enough because their name is not a common Latino name. The fact that you kept calling Joyce “Jacqueline” demonstrates you view people through stereotypical tropes. Please read a book or try to learn something about class from Joyce.

  • Aunt Bee

    Just finished watching tonight’s episode and think Brandi and the witch should have their own show on after midnight so no children should be exposed. What an obnoxious two they are.

    I was a fan of Ms. Brandi til this season. Playing victim. Always someone else’s fault. Should’ve stopped while she was a head. RHOBH made her and now it will bring her down. I love every minute of it. I think it’s funny how Lisa and Yolanda are distancing themselves from her, too.

  • yaya

    Aunt Bee, oh yes, I knew from day one that Brandi was always going to portray the victim, she not only turned out to be the victim but the nasty mean drunk. Remember how Kyle and the other gals treated her unfairly when she first joined the housewives? Well, it appears she now treats all the new pretty newcomers appalling with the exception if carlie the no brain witch. I hope Joyce keeps annoying Brandi so Brandi can get a small dose of her own medicine.
    Happy Holidays to you & yours, Aunt Bee.

  • Aunt Bee

    Thank you Yaya and the same to you. God Bless us all in the New Year.

    LOL.. .. at the comments above. Brandi has never played the victim. She is honest and makes no excuses for her behavior, she owns her s**t which is more than I can say for the rest of the RHOBH cast. She says what she wants, does what she wants, exposes the fakeness for what it is, and make no excuses. Anyone who hates Brandi hates to hear the truth. What she said was horrible, but to be called a racist is ridiculous. She is the only one who besides Lisa has shown that she can fit in anywhere and get along with anyone. Joyce is like Kyle, vicious until a real estate deal or in Joyce case a pageant. I love Brandi balls out way about her, she’s a hot mess.

      Did you read the open letter? Brandi totally plays the victim and blames Joyce for the consequences of her own actions. It’s not Joyce’s fault that Brandi is losing jobs. The viewers did not like what they saw and spoke up! Basically, Brandi made a huge mistake in thinking that Joyce would be an east target. She didn’t expect her to stand up for herself.

      As for Brandi being “real,” yes, she is real drunk and real tacky.

    Brandi is the ultimate mean girl and is jealous of good looking women who are happily married. If ur going to be honest about something a mature person does it with class without insulting another person. Brandi is not honest she needs more than rehab she should seek solutions to better herself n put her boys first. Joyce she is just jealous of U.
