Joyce Giraud has been through the ringer on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills -- and she hasn't even been on an entire season yet. Although the two-time Miss Puerto Rico has hit it off with some of the ladies, including Kyle Richards, her beef with Brandi Glanville has taken center stage.
On last night's episode, Joyce and the ladies were seen in Palm Springs, where they arrived for vacation just one episode prior, and throughout the trip, things have remained tense -- especially between Joyce and Brandi.
"I was so over the bickering and bantering," Joyce admitted in her Bravo blog on December 15 of her attitude towards the end of the trip. "I was so over listening to women say they are 'girl's girls,' while they beat the rest so much they make them cry while at the same time trying to act as if they are superior to the world. Between Brandi's stupidity and Yolanda's arrogance I just wanted the dinner to be over."
During the dinner, Brandi became extremely drunk and Yolanda, who claims to be a classy woman, sat back and let it happen. Although Brandi is certainly responsible for her own actions, it's a bit worrisome to see how her friends condone this behavior. If they are Brandi's true friends, wouldn't they do their best to keep Brandi's drinking to a minimum -- especially in front of the cameras?
Either way, Joyce isn't buying Brandi's "nice" act.
"Now I see Brandi's true colors. I didn't know Brandi was faking being nice, as she said in her confessional. I was just thinking the poor girl probably has a drinking problem and how can you be rational with someone who is wasted out of their mind?" she asked. "I now see that it wasn't the alcohol making her a bully. It was just her true character."
Brandi does drink a lot and at time, she seems to use that as an excuse, but the more time goes on, it seems clear that she's just miserable and misery loves company.
