Joyce Giraud de Ohoven

Joyce explains her Hawaiian outfit and what she really thinks of hugging Brandi and "agreeing to disagree."

on Jan 130

Hola Mis Amores! I hope you all had a beautiful week.

This week's episode was quite interesting for me to watch as I discovered hypocrisy at its maximum exposition.

At the beginning of the episode it was interesting to see Carlton and Brandi in their element at the pole dancing. I can understand why they like each other so much.

What I can't understand is how in the world was Carlton so offended that my husband joked about having a naked room when our babies grow up -- yet this is pretty much her main storyline? How was she so offended when I spoke about my husband's manhood, yet she does the exact same thing? I wonder if she is getting inspired by the very same things she hates about me and decides to do them? Too much double standard, especially for someone who claims to be so spiritual and to love women.

Joyce, you are a beautiful, warm, classy lady . .you are happily married  . . . and clearly Brandi is jealous of you. You are younger, prettier, warmer, smarter, classier, educated . . .and every time she opens her mouth to you, she makes herself look worse. Keep your head up, hope you are on next season.

You're awesome Joyce! Such a lady! Carlton is jealous that you don't have to have threesomes and hire strippers to keep your husband interested! You are beautiful... please don't let Carlton get to you. She is clearly miserable already.

Joyce, you and your husband are great!! Keep on doing what you are doing because it works... I can feel the love and honesty from you. You are always so gracious and sweet. With that said, I also like the fact that you can stick up for yourself. You were quiet at first when Brandi started in with you.. but at some point you really need to defend yourself and I was sooooo glad you did.. Keep up the good work... What Brandi fails to realize when she's lying and trying to make everyone feel sorry for her, is that we can actually see the episodes for ourselves... she can't then just make stuff up and call you all kinds of names.. And yes, she is a BULLY and made at least one racial comment. And, based on her own behavior I think she's Bi-Polar.. it's funny how she can call you all kinds of stuff but when you give it back to her it's unacceptable... LOL


We love you Joyce!

Joyce, I love you on the show, you are a breath of fresh air. You are intelligent, pretty and very honest, a lot of traits some of these other ladies don't have. Brandi is very jealous of you from the get go, you have everything she doesn't. She acts worst than a 12 year old spoiled brat. She is a grown woman who refuses to behave like one and for the life of me, I have grown to dislikeLisa and Heather for the way they always try to defend her bad behavior, I used to look at Lisa and Heather as really women of dignity and class but when I see them defending Brandi, it's almost as if they encourage her bad behavior and hide behind being dignified women. I find myself switching channel or walking away when their story lines are on, I do not like when people are fake. You are staying true and handling Brandi the way she should be handled and they cannot take it because none of them ever stood up to her to tell her she is wrong about the way she behaves. It's terrible for a grown woman. SMH. She stays close to Lisa and Heather because they are the ones with money that can take her anywhere and she gets to hang with them for free as we all know she has no money, so the question again is, why is she even on the show? Can somebody please tell me. To you Joyce, stay true and all blessings to you and you family, stay away from Carlton and Brandi, please and whenever possible from Heather and Lisa also, it's already established that none of these women like you or will ever be your friend. Stick with Kyle and Kim. Love you.

I personally really like Joyce. I think she is an awesome addition to the cast. As for Brandi, I was such a huge fan prior to this season. However I think she has gone after Joyce in such a venomous manner, and Joyce has fed into it and responded. I noticed she didn't feed into Brandi's nonsense as much in Palm Springs and just kind of let a lot go.. I think Joyce was thrown by Brandi's hostility & she began to prep herself to bite back... I would have looked better if she had of kept a similar composure to that of her Palm Springs attitude - it would have made her look better & it would have made Brandi look like the negative nelly & nasty piece of work she is...

But I guess that wouldn't have made for good tv now would it?

& I do believe that everyone has a breaking point & maybe upon reflection of the Palm Springs comments, the the comments @ Yo's party by the time Lisa's dinner came round I think Joyce was more than ready to return what Brandi was sending...

Ahhh Drama... I guess while everyone one of you are commenting it means that both Joyce & Brandi are winning - because they were entertaining enough for us to log on here & give away a couple minutes of our life to write what we felt & believe & read others opinions....

Peace Out x

If you want respect from your castmembers, you have to stop trying to be so friendly with those who obviously dislike you namely Brandi, Carlton, and Yolanda. Also you have to not rush into joining in the gossips with whoever befriends you and tries to lure you into their camps namely the Richards sisters. Thirdly you can't just rush to the classy gal like Lisa and came on so strongly accusing her of being rude to you about the hairgate.  You just have to be COOL and spend the first season JUST observing the intricasies of these women's relationships.

Okay Joyce, stop with the repeated set up dinners/events where you go for Brandi's throat and she goes for yours.  It's tiring, and if it continues I don't think you're going to maintain a fan base, which you need for another season.  Let Brandi hang her own dumb ass, which she's very good it.  Brandi is mean, and yes, probably, we should wonder WHY she's so mean, but who really cares.  I, for one, am so sick of her constant drinking, dumb ass comments, whining, crying, poor little pitiful me, and that Dutch Heidi (Yolanda) constantly "pretending" she's anyone's friend, particularly Brandi's.  And that ugly, evil, vile, drag-queen looking Brit, Carlton, who has no redeeming quality other than self-absorption, maybe her husband will run off with Lee Ann Rimes (or Eddy).  Bravo, please ditch Brandi, Carlton, and Yolanda next season.  whew, I feel so much better.

Stop being such a victim and stand up for yourself.  Stop whining to your husband, who brought up so many things said when he wasn't present.  He is a bully!!!!!  The tag team that you two did on Brandi was lacked class!!!   You don't seem to be the sweet person that you are trying to portray.

Understand that some viewers are questioning the duality of behavior & responses you've displayed thus far & therefore can't say fully that they are 'for' or 'against' you.  While some of your choices are admirable, just as many are not, raising eyebrows & suspicion over exactly who you are & what you're about.  You're walking a tightrope, whether you realize it or not.  You can be forthright and cunning.    Over time, you will reveal exactly who you are.  What you think viewers see versus what they discern may be not what you desire or intend.  Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it....Brandi's demonstrating the difference between famous & infamous.  Pay attention.

Brandi is a stinker and there is no excuse for her behavior.  She admits herself she has been nothing but a brutal and behaving badly. She even attacks Lisa who has treated her as a daughter and soon will be turning her back on her too. I hate Brandi's behavior this season.  I am glad you are being the classier of the two.

I admire how you handle yourself with Brandy and the shemale Carlton, you are a classy beautiful woman and good for you for standing up for yourself to the drunk bully Brandi and the shemale Carlton, they are totally jealous of you.  Stand your ground girl!!!

kudos for standing up to brandi. but i think you're quite a self centered person and you can't stop talking about yourself

Listen pageant girl. Your condescending attitude negates anything good that comes from you.  Brandi doesn't like you. You don't like her. Agree to disagree and DO NOT hug it out. Because even though you complain that it was fake for Brandi to do it. It was just as fake for you to do it and then call her out for it on your blog. A classy lady would have had a better reflection: "Hugging it out was clearly not a good idea. Brandi was clearly not ready for it and I have to understand that not everyone is going to like and I have to move on."

Wow! Brandi may not have been as nice as she could have been to you, but every time I read your blog you are truly just as mean and catty as she is! Your whole story line is Brandi. What would you have without that drama?

Brandi doesn't like you b/c you are a girly girl and you are so classy. You're well spoken, educated and beautiful. Before you, Brandi was the youngest and the thinnest. I think you are a direct threat to her popularity, and when you throw in good character and elegance, her claws are definitely coming out!

I must give you credit for defending yourself against these other women especially Brandi and Carlton.  You have the life that Brandi wants and the pretty face that Carlton desires.

Really?????  You and your husband seem to be the bullying pair.  You are about as interesting as a pet rock.

Brandi Glanville  has Narcissistic Personality Disorder  that is characterized by a long-standing  pattern of grandiosity (either in fantasy or actual behavior), an overwhelming need for admiration,  and usually a complete lack of empathy  toward others.  People with this disorder often believe they are of primary importance in everybody’s life or  to anyone they meet.

Joyce, when it comes to Brandi, I have seen her be nothing but rude and mean toward you.  It does seem that she targets everything you do, and tries to demean you, so I can see why she would get the "bully" tag from you.  IMO, she's not a bully, just mean and stupid, but if someone were constantly going after me that way, I may have a different opinion.  At the same time, her acting that way is the best thing that has happened to you.  I don't see much more going on with you besides the Brandi feud, and her loss is your gain. 


On another note, I don't get people who are so put-out because you flip your hair.  What's the big deal? 

DeeLove92

I can't say I agree with everything you do (starting drama with Lisa about trying to fix her hair, throwing Brandi under the bus when she was trying to give you advice, and throwing around "racist") Joyce, but I do really like you. I think deep down you're a sincere and sweet person, just don't get caught up in the cattiness. Take the high road and ignore Brandi.


PS I'm way too jealous of your hair. Can't deal with it. x.x

rachel.n.lee.7

With  Leo, people think I'm the nanny because of his blue eyes and blond hair.  Based on your standards, Brandi should be calling you a racist.  Why not say people think you are the mistress or aunt or local country singer?

I like you Joyce. I don't care if people think you're fake. Much better than Carlton, Kim or Kyle (even if you are friends with her).

Please drop the drama with Brandi. It is not worth it. Maintain your diplomacy and grace. There are always going to be one or two that do not like the new kid on the block or feel inferior about another because of their insecurities. Be the bigger person and ignore the drama queens. To acknowledge or respond to them is giving them power over you.

Joyce, let someone else talk.  Your need to be the center of attention ALL THE TIME is not very attractive and your attack on Brandi is just ugly.  Leave her alone.  You've taken what she said out of context and used it to go after her at another persons dinner table. Low class.

I notice you never laugh at anything and I wonder if you have a sense of humor or if you lack the wit to understand a joke.  I think if you were a bit smarter you'd understand it when someone is just having fun at a girls afternoon away and laugh it off rather than coming back with your husband, who wasn't there, to attack the most beautiful woman there.

The only difference between you and Brandi is that you have a husband to support you.  I think you are jealous of each other. One no different than the other.  That is saying something since I have always liked Brandi but see this season she is treading water.  If you are truly what and who you are you will see beyond her antics and dismiss them as being unimportant.  When you blog about it you are giving credence to everything she says abut you.

@polishmom  Whom did they bully? (Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual.)

@NOTRASH While Brandi displays some characteristics associated with narcissism, her out of contol projecting of her insecurities wreaks of low self esteem which flies in the face of a true narcissist.  Not to mention her need to medicate herself to stuff what she's actually feeling.  An unquestionable train wreck meeting criteria for a plethora of personality disorders, yes....narcissistic personality disorder,  I don't think is a complete fit.  Just sayin'.

@be@ch it is an affected behavior.  Now go look that up.

@rachel.n.lee.7 Just a thought - maybe she had the experience where people have thought she was the nanny, since her kids have different coloring.  I'm sure no one went up to her when she was with Leo (I'm assuming that's her son's name) and said, "oh, is this your mistress/aunt/country singer?"  I have a friend who has black hair, brown eyes, and a dark complexion who has kids that are fair, with light skin and hair.  He was not lucky enough to be thought of as a nanny, he would be watched with suspicion (that's more racist in my opinion).  Guess he should've said, "no, I'm just the local country singer."  LOL

@1amandalo I agree Joyce is beautiful, but that seems to sway your opinion of her and her husband. They displayed vey LOW class way they tag-teamed insulting and viciously attacking Brandi. There is NO excuse for that, no matter what Joyce's perceived problems with Brandi are, especially at a dinner party thrown by Lisa. Joyce & her hubby came in LATE with big chips on their shoulders against Brandi. They were itching for a fight. It looked like they had practiced and rehearsed their rants! Disgusting. Way over the line, they were so self-important and consumed with their righteous indignation, forcing everyone at the table, even the whole restaurant to listen to them. Very rude and inconsiderate of their host, their dinner partners, and the rest of the paying customers who had the misfortune to be in the vicinity! Classy? Not even close.  Pay Attention!

@1amandalo Very classy to show up almost an hour late for a dinner party.  That's pretty tacky & not even apologize for being tardy. A class act.

@bemaubi You might want to get your facts straight, Joyce actually has a career and credentials aside from her husband.  Brandi was just the wife of an actor, her claim to fame being that he left her for Leann Rimes; BIG difference.  I think it would be hard NOT to blog about Brandi's behavior towards Joyce since it has been such an over the top assault.

bittersweet4

@J.Mobile@polishmom Calling someone racist, bully, an alcoholic, stupid little bitch, trash and my favorite "you may be blonde, but you are not stupid" are pretty aggressive.   Joyce is making an assumption that all blondes are basically stupid because of their hair color.  Brandi said she didn't like Joyce because she was "annoying".  Joyce just might want to tone back her remarks, especially the one against blondes - sounds a bit racist to me.

@yoaabbott@1amandalo I'm not going to go back and forth with you.  I stand by what I said.  You may want to comment on what Brandi said when she started the argument.  OH, I guess you missed that part.

yoaabbott

@portlandiagirl@bemaubi The only thing that was "over the top" was NOT Brandi, but JOYCE'S WAY OVER THE TOP NAME CALLING ASSAULT ON BRANDI!  Joyce way over reacted.  BTW, Brandi worked as a model before she was married and had kids. Joyce's continued and unending blog assault, in addition to her repeated verbal attacks whenever Joyce is on camera shows she is obsessed with proving herself RIGHT and Brandi wrong.  Pretty childish and petty, since she seems unable to let it go.

bittersweet4

@J.Mobile@bittersweet4 I understood completely.  If someone says something offensive to Joyce, she feels she is being bullied or that it is a racist comment.  But, it is o.k. for her to choose to insert "you may be blonde or a blonde" but you are not stupid.  Why does Joyce feel it necessary to even use the word "BLONDE"  - she basically insulted a group of people that don't deserve it.  Joyce said it as a back-handed compliment.  If her true intentions were to just point out how stupid & badly Brandi was behaving then why not say the words & not preface it with "YOU MAY BE BLONDE".  I take offense, just as Joyce takes offense at a number of things.

J.Mobile

@bittersweet4 You did not understand, Joyce said - you are not bimbo. Bimbo is a derogatory slang term for an attractive but unintelligent female. Joyce said a compliment because no one on any of the RH shows has less education than Brandi and she is just shockingly unintelligent.
