Model and pageant queen Joyce Giraud made her debut on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" at the beginning of the show's fourth season, and while she has reportedly not been asked back for season five, she's certainly left her mark and will forever be known as one of the most beautiful housewives.

So, how did Joyce get her start as a model? The answer might surprise you.

“I was ‘discovered’ in Puerto Rico while I was working at a drive-thru at KFC,” Joyce told Naluda Magazine, according to a March 10 report by Wetpaint Entertainment. “Then, I started modeling and was able to pay for my university studies with the income that modeling generated, becoming one of the top models of Puerto Rico.”

On the hit Bravo series, Joyce is seen living a life of luxury in her big house, with her fancy clothes and fancy cars, so it's hard to picture her working in a drive-thru, but everyone has to start somewhere and for her, KFC was where that was at.

As for season five, Joyce, along with Carlton Gebbia, is rumored to be getting the axe, with Bravo opting for a new set of wives to join Brandi Glanville, Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster, and the Richards sisters.
