Joyce Giraud de Ohoven

Joyce explains what she thinks happened with Carlton's curse and what she really thinks of her Wiccan ways.

on Jan 270

Hola mis amores. This week was very busy, as my big charity event is quickly approaching. It's a lot of work but so worth it. I hope to see many of you there in March.

On this week's episode we all see Carlton's party. She invited us, and, frankly until I saw her interviews, I never knew she had a problem with me -- so my husband and I went. When we arrived we gave David a nice bottle of champagne and he was sweet and welcoming. Carlton, on the other hand, wasn't so welcoming and seeing the face she made when she said hello to me, I wish I would've politely declined her invitation.

The best part of the party was when Carlton's friend AC sang; she sings beautiful. The worst part of the party was when one of the strippers got stuck to the pole because it was so hot in the sun. I felt so bad for her, it was humiliating for the poor girl.

Kim was very cute at her autograph signing. She's fun!

Kyle was great at her Days of Our Lives appearance. She looked like she was having a really good time.


Yolanda
invited us to her home to do a painting party for Gigi so she could take the canvases with her to NY. I thought it was a beautiful idea.

When I arrived, Yolanda and I had a very nice chat for about 30 minutes. Then Carlton arrived a bit stressed out and decided to attack from the beginning. First she says I'm "labeling" Brandi because I asked if we should leave the wine in the house. I didn't exactly want to hike Yolanda's steps carrying the heavy bucket of ice if no one was drinking it.

Joyce, you're a beauty and sweet too.  It's driving the "other" one round the bend.  BTW your hubby is a sweetie too.

Joyce, Bravo is not being fair to you and your story. They are showcasing Carlton, who everyone hates. I have seen it before, they want the anger, negative energy, shit starter in hopes it will generate ratings. This type is behavior is a bad reflection on the real houswives of Beverly HIlls. It makes us the viewers wonder if Carlton is typical of the BHHW. I do not think they real care about the viewers. Faye Resnick was taken for far less than what Carlton has done.

I would love to see what you do in your spare time, your husbands business, charities, your children. Basically I would like to see what Joyce's life really is. I hate that your air time has been spent defending yourself against Brandi and Carlton. These are the types that Bravo appear to want on this show. Too bad. I woudl hate to stop watching becasue of Carlton, but I will and hope other viewers follow me.

Joyce, you have a good spirit.  You are classy and beautiful.  Don't give the wicked witch your power by believing that she has any power.  The devil has NO power.  Don't forget that.

Ugh, Joyce is so fake!!!  She has planned everything she is going to say on camera and poses for the camera.  She is not a "REAL" housewife, get her off tv!

Joyce,


i know your husband among others produced the Oscar nominated movie 'Capote" and Phillip Seymour Hoffman won Best Oscar from that film.  I send my sincere condolences and love to you and your family.  It is tragically sad to lose him so young.  Take care,

Carlton is 40 and she looks like 58, no wonder she is so jealous of you!

Wait……Who made Joyce the morality hall monitor of all?rflmao……  This person claims she wants to be a role model for young girls yet the following has spewed from her mouth.  "When I first came to the US, LA, I loved the movie "Pretty Woman" so much that I stayed at the Beverly Wilshire trying to live out that fantasy" then in her intro, "No one can be too skinny"…..I personally believe in proper health, mentally and physically.  Her statements are damaging to young women……….promoting prostitution and eating disorders….Big mistake, Joyce, Big!

Joyce, pay no attention to those who want to "bash" you.  I have seem nothing but a classy, intelligent, good-hearted person who loves life.  Don't let this show change you - as it does a lot of times.  If people were honest, they would say there is NOTHING mean or provoking you have done on the show to anyone.  You have started speaking up against the trash (incase, there's any question...I'm talking about Brandi and Carlton) after you had had enough!  You lasted longer than most.  Just know, that because Brandi and Carlton have NOTHING to offer to the show, they HAVE to act like ignorant trash to stay on the show.  It's either all a joke with those two or they really are the disgusting TRASH they "play" on the show.  Love you and stay strong.  I speak about "bullying" and that's exactly what they are...people who pick out people to torment and pick on them, constantly, for no reason!  They don't realize how pathetic and ignorant they appear and it's done for the attention they THINK it gives them.  I almost feel sad for Brandi and Carlton....they are grown woman and need to take a class on how woman are supposed to act.  The really take Bravo to all new low!

Has anyone noticed the resemblance of Carlton and one of those little troll dolls. Her face (eyes) are exactly like those little troll dolls. And yes she does use her Wicca to somewhat threaten you and then kinda deny it but not really. As for her talking smack about Kyle well it just goes to show how double sided she really is. She won't mess with Lisa because she seems to be the badest/richest bitch on the block and of course Joyce is easy pickens.

You go Joyce!!!  You are an amazing woman to constantly  have to stand up for yourself cos of these haters!  People see you are beautiful and automatically hate you for that and the fact you are super duper polite, nice and sweet, even to your haters (Brandi and Carlton) infuriates people even more. I've liked you from the start and I hope you are on next season and Bravo kick Brandi and Carlton to the curb!

Carlton is a freak! I can't stand someone who is constantly judging and pushing her opinions on people.  I wish someone would tell her to but out!!!!  Also please tell me why she is on the show.  I find her disgusting to watch. You're a beautiful woman and it's obvious that she is jealous of your looks and great personality.  Keep standing up to a woman who is definitely paranoid of nothing.

Joyce, It's bad manners to negatively critique someone's home while you are standing around eating their food.  BTW, when will the viewers be able to view your home ?

You're a good one. I hope you can get off of this mess of a show (that it has become) before you become a bad one.

Or perhaps Brandi and Carlton will be fired. 

Having to defend yourself constantly from awful people that don't know you will eventually turn you into the bad one.

Only Lisa has somehow managed to stay above the fray. And I think it is that she really IS a happy woman with a wonderful man and really very busy.

Be secure in who and what you are and you will be able to also. If you cannot deal with these horrible 2, you will end up being the baddie unless they are removed.

I like you alot. Here's hoping they fire the other 2 and don't replace them with other girls of their caliber.

BRAVO has become the The Jerry Springer Show of the evening. Just be forewarned.

Only Kyle and Lisa will be remembered after all is said and done.

I'm happy you are in another show and are looking for other outlets for your talent.

NO faith in your God?! You doubted & YES, you believed that Carlton cast a spell on your family?! Nah, your baby/man had gastro-intestinal issues because he needs to stop eating & follow your 'never thin enough' plan.  Don't blame Carlton for negativity that exudes from your passive-aggressive, fake positivity attitude.

Joyce....how come we never see you fly in on your broom? And do you leave your broom in the parking lot? Really...that is calling the pot black....you really do have some witchy ways yourself....you are very passive aggressive and mean spirited....but as an Aries that you are....you are still hiding behind this façade and have not shown your true colors....yet.. try to spend more time with Carlton and get to know her and quit spending so much time in front of the mirror....mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairest witch of them all? Carlton or Hoyce ????

You have a right to praise your religion and be proud of your God, just like Carlton. She is a very negative, judgmental and hypocritical person.  Keep right on defending yourself and not let these haters get to you.  I saw that you tried to get a long with everyone and they started in on you first, so if that's how they want to play the game I don't blame you for defending yourself.  Your hair is beautiful, so keep on hair tossing and two snaps while you're at it!!  LOL!!  I'm liking you more each episode.

Carlton (a business woman supposedly) is just a follower of Brandi. Calling Joyce the name Jacqueline on her blog was proof of that.

She is incredibly foolish to follow Brandi and resort to childish name calling to make a pointless point (aside from the one atop her head). Or she is stupid and doesn't know your name by now...even though she filmed beside you for weeks.

Which is she? Foolish or stupid?

I think you, Kyle and Lisa said some rude, judgmental and condescending things during your visit to Carlton's.

Joyce, you try to come off as perfect and poised, but you really try too hard. First - do you EVER dress down? Is it always stilettos and waist length curled hair with you?! Your catty comments are starting to come out now...the dream team comment was mean, esp when Yolanda was clearly hurt. The comment about the wine, however you try to spin it, was pretty obvious and both Carlton and Yolanda caught onto it in a millisecond. Everyone is entitled to their own religous beliefs, and I get that you have yours (although it is not YOUR God, I would imagine He belongs to everybody), but why openly disrespect someone else's beliefs at a social gathering? You don't have to say you don't believe in spells to someone that clearly does - keep it to yourself. That's just as offensive if someone said they didn't believe in YOUR God or whatever to you. And here you are still insisting her negativity can't get to you, while you clearly thought your husband got sick as a result of a spell. Which is it? Nice attempt to backtrack in this blog, you always concoct stories afterward to hide your earlier missteps. 


Anyway, other than your annoying hair flipping, you seem nice enough, but I think you are very calculated in everything you do and say. I do however agree that the comment Brandi made crossing her fingers was ridiculous.

Joyce it is great seeing you on the show! You are always so gracious and nice. You are very beautiful and it shows from the inside out. I love how you stood up to Carlton and let her know God is bigger are more powerful than any little spell she might conjure up. You are such a great refresher to the show and I'm glad you are here. Don't let Brandi and Carlton run you off.  I truly believe they are just very insecure about themselves and thus the reason they act the way they do. Best of wishes!

joyce is right we create our own reality and what you put focus on comes to you. i believe her husband focused on the energy and allowed it to bring him down while joyce remained confident in her high flying energy. i have to say i appreciate that what i do is closer to wicca than any religion i ever wanna associate with but i know that her faith should be disappointed in her (not judiasm ashamed of kyle) because her values and way of living are not empowering women and goddesses. hello its not just selective women that matter in wicca it is all women and for someone to be so consumed in their faith, she should really be more forgiving and understanding

Girlfriend...you are fun! A real trooper, and one I feel not to mess with. You're pure, inside & out! God has you safely in his hands, Pay no mind to silliness of casting spells. I admire your response to Carlton's explanation to her faith. Shows maturity, strength, and true faith in your own beliefs! God Bless, and always be with you, and yours!

Joyce, I admire your strenght and class. It must not be easy to stay so classy when you have to deal with the stupidity of some of these women (not ladies, because a lady would not behave in such a manner). I especially admire your pride and courage when you spoke about our Mighty God. You are absolutely right when you said your God is a powerful God and nothing is more powerful than him, and anyone who believes in him will be protected from all that is evil. I'm sure that's why Carlton reacted with such rage and threatened you.


It's obvious that Carlton has serious issues. Not because of her religion (although I'm not too sure how sane one must be to be to believe in what she believes), but because of the person she is. She's disgustingly rude, vulgar, hypocritical, judgemental, probaly has anger issues, and has a very dark and disturbing side to her. She's not the kind of person you would want or should have in your life. The woman is nothing but negativity and is an embarrassment to the show.


Keep being the positive, classy, strong and kind person you are and don't let those fools bring you down to their level. The gutter is not attractive or respectable!

Please don't give her a second thought.  She works twitter but is unable to blog on RHBH... me thinks she is a "slap & run" bully!!

Joyce,  I'd keep some holy water around every time I was any where near Carlton.  She's confused with her religion, she wishes others harm how is that white magic.  She is dark very dark.  You may want to tell Kyle to get her necklace back and then burn it, since Carlton likes to cast spells.  No telling what she does at home.  Her house looks like a dungeon there is nothing cheery about it.  I hope you stay around your a beautiful lady, too good looking for Brandi and Carlton (they can't stand it)  Let your haters be your motivators!

@Larae88  How can someone plan what they are going to say, unless they know what the other person is going to say?   If this is true then the show is scripted and FAKE. 

You say Joyce is not a "REAL" housewife? Is she married? - YES, Does she live in Beverly Hills? - YES

If you want Joyce off television, give you televison away. Period. 

Joyce represents the housewives of Beverly Hills in a way that we who are watching would expect someone who lives in that zip code to act. Class, Dignity, Respect for others.

@delusional Echoing your post, coupled with longstanding appreciation for the work of PSH from Twister, Scent of a Woman, Patch Adams through Capote, Ides of March & Doubt (to name a few).  Heartbreaking for those closest to him as well as those who recognized & appreciated his enourmous talent.  Addiction is a life threatening condition.  I hope those who miss him take comfort in the knowledge that in God's love & mercy, he is now whole & in a better place.

@HI50 Thank you.  I could not understand why I keep seeing posts about her being strong in her faith when clearly she became a doubting thomas.  Either someone got in her head OR she again decided to go for the fake drama/ratings. Either way I am just not loving the Joyce.

@Sandy61 it's fine if she wants to toss her hair, she;s good at it. what isn't cool is the fact that she goes to Lisa and tries to get some of Lisa's hair off of her face, a strand of hair that seemingly wasn't bothering Lisa and when Lisa told her it didn't bother her... who got offended? who confronted Lisa? it was Joyce.

@sakina21 I read in an interview online, Joyce believes that the people who don't care for her isn't because of who she is but rather because Brandi's fans are being mean to her. That people should judge her with an open heart. What you say has nothing to do with Brandi. My words do not either. And I feel the same as you. I'm just going off of what I am witnessing. What is so difficult about accepting the fact that one isn't cared for because of who they are? Why blame it on Brandi? And I agree with you about what you wrote.

@SweetheartBright   IMO, Michael got an unexpected case of food poisoning.  I've had that in restaurants before (with no hex put on me) and it hits quickly and hard! 

At the painting party, Brandi was the one who brought up "spells".  Always stirring the pot, that one.

@charnorm @Larae88 At least when she is on I have time to go refill the wine and grab a snack. I agree she has all the elements that should equal the perfect housewife the problem is she is truly boring.  Was hoping for more - she just did not deliver.  I don't think Lara has to chuck her TV just wait until next season :)
