The Week By Bravo: All About Joanna's Feud With Brandi
The biggest fight of the week involved Housewives on both coasts.
Worlds (and cities) collided this week as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville found herself in the middle of a heated controversy with Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupa. It all started when Adriana de Moura accused Joanna of breaking up Yolanda Foster’s marriage to Mohamed Hadid by having an affair with him. Adriana learned of Mohamed’s alleged infidelity from Brandi, who dished on Watch What Happens Live this week that Mohamed told her some…unsavory things about Joanna’s body. Already confused? Here's a complete recap of the drama.
The First Blow: Brandi’s Accusation
On last week’s RHOM reunion, Adriana accused Joanna of breaking up Yolanda' marriage to Mohamed, claiming that Joanna had an affair with Hadid while he was still married to Yolanda. Her source? None other than Brandi Glanville, who corroborated Adriana’s story this week on Watch What Happens Live. During the WWHL After Show, Joanna took a dig at Brandi over Twitter, writing “No wonder her husband left her.” Brandi’s retort: “Well, Mohamed told me that her p---y smelled!”
Mohamed Strikes Back
The feud only grew from there. Mohamad weighed in next, saying that he never had an affair with Joanna. He claims they have been friends for over a decade, and took to Twitter to say “@joannakrupa @gtru_star77 @adrianathereal @YolandHFoster. Sadly I take responsibility 4 braking up our marriage. YO never even Knew Of JO” He also added that “Jo and I have only best [sic] friend for 10 years. Two years after out [sic] separation”
Yolanda Weighs In
With Brandi, Joanna and Mohamed already in the mix, it was only natural for Yolanda to eventually speak up. She sounded off on Twitter, saying “Only @MohamedAHadid @joannakrupa &God know d truth of this 12 yr old accusation, I choose 2 focus on d now & spare my babies this negativity”
The man at the center of all this drama is Mohamed Hadid, Yolanda’s ex-husband, whom she divorced 10 years ago. Hadid is a close friend of several Bravolebs, including his friend and neighbor Lisa Vanderpump and the Shahs of Sunset. He first appeared in the Bravosphere when he threw an engagement party for Vanderpump’s daughter. And as a leading property developer, Hadid has made appearances on Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles as well as Shahs of Sunset. He’s especially close with Lilly Ghalichi—he even threw her birthday bash at his home.
Yolanda to Brandi: Please Be Quiet
This scandal stretched out across several days, until Yolanda couldn’t take it anymore. Brandi wrote in her blog this week that she will be dropping the drama once and for all, after Yolanda asked her to keep quiet about the scandal. “Yolanda asked me as of now to no longer comment on this subject,” Brandi writes, “and I will respect her wishes because she is trying to stay focused on getting her health back on track. So as of now if you ask me anything about this subject (yes even you Andy Cohen) I will decline to answer.”
Taylor Armstrong’s Two Cents
Although Brandi agreed to keep quiet, there was no guarantee that other ‘Wives wouldn’t jump in on the drama. Taylor Armstrong chimed in on TMZ this week saying that she was not surprised by the situation “because Brandi can’t keep her f---ing trashy mouth shut!” She added, “Who talks about another woman’s vagina? It’s so gross and so classless, and it’s pretty consistent with how she is…What business is it of hers who Yolanda’s husband was sleeping with? That’s so gross to me.” This, of course, isn’t the first time Taylor and Brandi have come to blows.
Last, But Not Least: Lisa Vanderpump
Lisa Vanderpump got the final word this week, when she defended Mohamed to Us Weekly. “[He] is a man of integrity,” she said. “When [Brandi] opens her mouth, whatever she says, her remarks have repercussions. Actions have consequences.” Vanderpump, who has recently been feuding with Glanville, continued, calling Brandi’s assertions “embarrassing” and “distasteful.” And that’s why she’s “retaliating and hitting back” against Brandi. “Not to defend myself,” she said, “but you talk crap about my friend, I’m going to come out all guns blazing.” Her final word of advice to Brandi? “Just put a muzzle on it.”
