Brandi Glanville ignited a huge controversy during Monday night’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when she told Joyce Giraud she couldn’t swim because, “you’re a black person”. Brandi explained that her black friends would have laughed at her joke because they wouldn’t of gotten in the pool because they didn’t want to give their weaves wet. After the episode aired, Kyle Richards appeared on Watch What Happens Live and defended Brandi, saying she is not racist. Brandi also called into the show and apologized for her comments.
Andy told Brandi, “As you can imagine I got a buttload of Tweets for you, wanting to know what you were thinking. Kenya Moore, Atlanta Housewife Tweeted ‘not all black women wear hair weaves, half the women on Beverly Hills Housewives are wearing some fake hair. Brandi could not be more ignorant.'” Brandi responded, “I know what I said was definitely inappropriate but I say a lot of inappropriate things. It was definitely not sensitive and I apologize to anyone I offended. But to be honest with you Andy, my friends joke with each other this way and they’re all different backgrounds. So, I’m sorry and I guess you’re not ready for the real Brandi? Should I censor myself?”
Next, Andy asked, “Do you think what you said was racist?” Brandi says she’s not racist at all. “I think it was definitely inappropriate. I’m the least racist person of all time. I think the more you defend it, the more you look guilty, so I don’t have to say that much more. I’m very sorry with whomever I offended.”
Kyle also jumped in to defend Brandi, saying, “I think Brandi was just trying to get a rise out of Joyce and I do not think that Brandi is a racist. I really don’t. I think it was not the greatest thing to say, not a smart comment. She sometimes says things that she shouldn’t say.”
