Joyce Giraud was new this year on the fourth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. However, she didn't come in shying away from the drama. In fact, she hopped right into the group and immediately established great friendships, one of which was with Kyle Richards.
"Kyle is fun and bubbly, so she makes me feel like I can be open and unfiltered with her. That’s why I explained the silly incident with Lisa to her," Joyce explained in her December 1 blog for Bravo. "I still can't believe that, as always, Brandi tried to twist the truth after stirring the pot to shift the responsibility away from herself."
Although Joyce and Brandi initially hit it off, things quickly went south and the two went to the opposite extreme, slamming each other both on the show and in the press. Prior to joining the show, the two had a mutual friend, but that seemed to be were their commonalities ended.
"Unfortunately, [Brandi] is one of those people who ALWAYS plays the victim and believes nothing is EVER her fault," Joyce wrote. "Nevertheless, back then I wasn't entirely aware of this, so I still wanted to get to know all the ladies and, as you saw, decided to invited all of the girls on the trip I was planning to Palm Springs."
As time goes on, Joyce is getting to know the ladies more and as expected, that can be a good thing and a bad things. As she forms friendships with some, feuds brew with others, but that's all a part of being on a reality show.
