AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVE: Joyce Giraud Tells All! Talks Brandi Warning Her About Lisa And Who Is Most Fake Plus More!
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Joyce Giruad is the newest housewife and has been the center of a lot of drama this season-specifically with Brandi. AllAboutTRH had the opportunity to have an exclusive interview with Joyce Giraud and she didn’t hold back! Joyce revealed whether she knows LeAnn Rimes, which RHOBH is the most fake, and tells us all the details on Brandi warning her about Lisa! Check it out below
AllAboutTRH: There’s been several rumors that you’re friends with Brandi Glanville’s ex-husbands wife LeAnn Rimes. Is there any truth to that?
Joyce Giraud: Once and for all… I have never met LeAnn or Eddie!!! It’s so frustrating when people lie and spread rumors! Even Leanne went public to say the rumor isn’t true as we have NEVER met… I’m not saying I don’t like her or Eddie; I’ve just never met them. My husband did a movie a long time ago with Eddie but I think he was still with Brandi at the time. I wasn’t with him at the time of the shoot of that movie so that’s the reason we never met. I hosted an event for a charity that I love called Friend Movement. It’s an anti bullying campaign that is simply beautiful. That event was the same day as the premiere of my show Siberia on NBC so I was only able to do half of the night. Leanne was closing the show.
She got there after I left so that’s why we didn’t meet even though we were at the same event. If I would’ve met her I wouldn’t be ashamed of saying so as she has never done anything to me and who am I to judge her?
Do you read the ladies blogs?
I do read the ladies blogs and I have to say sometimes I’m more upset at what they write in their blogs than what they did in the show as the hypocrisy for some of them is insane… Its like they try to make it worst or spicy… why? just speak the truth! For example.. Carlton knows I NEVER made fun of her kids names… On the contrary… I said Cross was a beautiful name and then I said wow..”.Destiny and Mystery: I like that even better than Cross”?I wasn’t saying Cross isn’t a good name! I would never say that about any baby! Carlton and I had a great conversation right before the show premiered where she told me she fucking loved me and she fucking had my back. She told me she knew I wasn’t making fun of her babies names. Then 2 days later in her blog she rips me apart and throws out labels at me (the woman who says she HATES labels)
Do you think Lisa Vanderpump is behind the cheating rumors against Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky?
Did Brandi Glanville really give you a warning about Lisa Vanderpump?
YES! She called me right after Carlton’s lunch and said she wanted to check on me because Lisa had been very rude to me. At first I really thought she had good intentions. I Thanked her for calling me and told her it was all good. I said maybe Lisa was having a bad day and thats why she was rude to me. Then she told me that Lisa is the type of person that can give criticism but she cant take it and that she would mention it in her confessional. I cut her off and said, “I’m confused… Isn’t Lisa your BFF?” Then she said… Yeah…I love her but she really is off sometimes. She can give criticism but she can’t take it.
I told her we shouldn’t make the silly incident a big deal because It was very high school… A couple of days later Brandi and I filmed a Piloxing class and out of the blue she starts talking crap about Kyle and Kim (on camera) I cut her off (on camera) and told her I disagreed with her statements… The day after that as I was shooting with Yolanda… Yolanda brings up on camera the silly hairgate incident… I WAS SO MAD AND SHOCKED! As I knew only Brandi could’ve told her… I was refusing to talk about the incident but Yolanda insisted 3 times and then told me (on camera) That Brandi had called her to tell her Lisa had been very rude to me. As I told Yolanda…”Maybe Lisa was having a bad day because when I’m on my period sometimes I’m not at my best… After having the conversation on camera I HAD to tell Lisa to her face because I wasn’t going to have multiple conversations about her and not tell her. Hairgate was so blown out of proportion. I wish you all could’ve seen Yolanda’s lunch so you could understand where I was coming from when I was telling Lisa. Watching it did seem extremely dramatic. I’m not blaming it on editing but as you all know there is a ton of footage that simply doesn’t make it to the final cut because they have to compact hours and hours of shooting into a one-hour show.
Do you think the ladies gave you a chance?
The only ones that gave me a chance from the very beginning where Kyle and Kim. I think the others weren’t so fair at the beginning because they hated me just because I was friends with Kyle…I was hated by association. Which I thought was very silly and very sorority like. But I do have to say that my relationship with some of them developed great. Others not so much but I won’t spoil the rest of the season for you
Who would you say is the most fake on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?
I think Carlton was fake to my face because she never told me she had problem with me. She smiled and said certain shoots were fun and great (like lunch at Kyles) then I see the show and she’s talking all this crap! If you didn’t have a good time… Why say you did to then go trash talk? I also feel like Yolanda acts like she’s a “girls girls” and a good friend on camera but is sometimes so arrogant and acts as if she’s above the world. For her husband to say that Yolanda says all her castmates are clowns trying to make a living and that she is only using the show as a stepping stone to get her own spinoff is the most ungrateful and arrogant thing I’ve heard. She joined a hit show. Be grateful to your producers and don’t minimize the achievements of your cast-members because the reality is that most of the girls actually do work.
What was the thing that surprised you most about being apart of the cast of RHOBH?
I was surprised to find out that RHOBH is really real. There is no script or guidance. I come from the scripted world so I always thought reality shows were guided but it honestly isn’t.
I was also surprised with some of the girls because I did watch the show and as an audience member I thought I would really get along with Brandi and I thought I wouldn’t like Kyle.. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
What do you think of David Foster calling all the RHOBH ladies clowns just trying to make a living?
I admire David foster in his career and every time I have met him he’s been a gentleman. I liked him a lot so I was a truly surprised to hear him speak like that. It’s not something I would’ve expected from him. Not very gentleman like of him If Yolanda obviously wants to be on the show so badly despite all her health problems, yet thinks everyone is a clown… This probably makes her the head clown.
Do you have any regrets this season?
I regret believing Brandi’s fake apology. It upsets me I was so nice and lenient to her and gave her the benefit of the doubt so many times. Especially after everything I now know she has tried to do to hurt me even while off the show.
Are you nervous for the season four reunion?
I’m not nervous at all. I could shoot the reunion tomorrow.
A LOT of people want to know what products you use on your gorgeous hair. Can you tell us your secret?
I use a mask that was a recipe my late grandmother would do. It’s a mix of different things. And my #1 tip is that you should only wash your hair once a week.
What’s next for you?
Right now I’m totally focused on my Queen of the Universe pageant (Queeuniversepageant.com) Its an international charity based pageant that I created to benefit UNESCO.. The pageant will take place at The Seban theater in Beverly Hills Sunday the 16 of March 2014. I hope to se you all there
I want to thank all the beautiful fans who have given me so much love and support. I truly am humbled and grateful for all the positive energy and the love. And to the few who are very mean and talk about me before knowing much about me… Please try to at least give me a break and know me before you hate me just by association. Just because Brandi and I don’t get along doesn’t mean you cant judge me with an open heart.
Joyce was great and she didn’t hold back! Thoughts on what Joyce had to say? Are you surprised about anything?
