Joyce Giraud de Ohoven

Joyce finally hit her breaking point with Brandi's bad behavior and the many excuses that "Dream Team" makes for it.

on Dec 30, 20130

As for Brandi saying I ignored her when I arrived: I am not exactly sure how she could even expect any more than my polite "Hello, how are you?" I didn't kiss her, because I was not going to give her a hypocritical kiss. I can be polite, but I will not be a fake -- like she's proven to be. She might be used to that, but if someone is rude and evil to me I will not kiss them.

Watching Brandi say yet again that Joyce is an "older person" and that's why I should be Jaqueline proves this girl isn't sorry about anything.

So before we even get to the table to bring us together, Brandi throws out to the bartender "Fill this up before I kill a Puerto Rican." Luckily for her, she made sure I couldn't hear this at the time, but it pretty much sums up her character. This is two for two for her, and yet another remark I cannot accept.

Brandi, you are fighting so hard on social media and every other outlet not to be called certain character traits that I associate with you, but why don't you let your actions shine instead? Use these holidays to do some charity and help some people, perhaps even the very minorities you like to drag down. Then we can believe you are the better person you claim to be on social media instead of the person we see in the flesh and on TV.

The Spanish bothers you, my name bothers you, my love and affection for my husband bothers you. . .If there is anyone in a "competition" it is definitely you! Brandi saying I have to "one up everyone" is ridiculous! She's the one that has constantly attacked me for no reason. Her only reason is that I didn't let her talk crap about her "BFF" Lisa and called her out on it.

When we sat at the dinner table, Lisa and I were having a great conversation about her book. I told her I bought it, and I bought all the girls' (Brandi and Kyle) just to be supportive, but that I didn't have the time to read them all yet. Brandi said that it was very sweet of me to do that. She told us about her friend's movie she bought to support but hadn't watched, so she sympathized with what I was saying. Finally, this was going in the right direction and I thought perhaps we could have a fresh start and a clean slate. Everyone was having a good time and nice conversation when out of the blue she interrupts and says: "Joyce, you and I have lots of friends in common." I responded nicely that we had one friend in common. Then she mentioned her friend Janelle (an acquaintance I like a lot and had good times with the few times I've seen her). At first, Brandi couldn't remember the other friend we have in common's name, but finally recalled Chrystelle. Yes, Chrystelle is a friend and I love her. So I agreed we have two friends in common. I still thought this would go in a positive direction, and perhaps we found a common denominator. Then Brandi proceeds to say "They don't speak well of you."

One thing that I am amazed that no one on the show has pointed out to Joyce is that she is attacking Brandi with a fury. She is non stop. It's very immature and unbecoming. Makes me really not like Joyce at all. Brandi is a single mom (more stress for her) has some drinks and says dumb stuff. She even take responsibility for that. Joyce can't stop attacking Brandi. It's completely ridiculous. At this point I can't stand to see Joyce on the screen. She's a total hypocrite.

1.  You have a classy way of taking no crap.

2.  You quoted Rumi.

3.  You rendered Lisa speechless.

 

:)

 

Joyce, can you please explain the gift-giving that Yolanda keeps referring to?  I'm originally from Hawaii and this is a common cultural practice.  Even if you're poor and can only bake a loaf of bread, you bring a gift to the home that you are visiting.  I was appalled that someone commented somewhere that you were trying to buy friendships. Really?  What could you possibly buy Lisa that she couldn't buy herself? Absurd.

 

Anyway, I'm enjoying watching you on the show!

I noted that a lot of comments say that Brandi is jealous of Joyce.  I think Brandi is a mess but I don't think she is jealous, why would she be?  In my view Brandi's issues with Joyce sprung when Brandi sincerely tried to help Joyce in the hair incident with Lisa.  

Brandi saw that Joyce felt slighted and tried to reach out and give Joyce some helpful advice on how to approach Lisa. To help Joyce build a friendship with Lisa.  

Joyce not only rejects Brandi's friendship offer and but blatantly tries to ruin Brandi's friendship with Lisa.  No doubt about that.  Joyce ambushes Brandi and asserts that Brandi is disloyal to Lisa.  A huge back stab considering Brandi was just trying to be kind to her.  

 No wonder Brandi thinks Joyce is an attention seeker as well as dumb.  I think that is where it started and now Brandi just can't stand her.

Joyce,

Brandi is not a racist. I do not care for you. You are trouble coming and going. You remind me of Adriene, sneaky. You see what happened to her from all of her instigating fights between the women. Just like her, you won't last on that show. Having your husband defend you shows how weak you really are. Anyone that has to have people come to their rescue is weak. Your being friends with Kyle says a lot about your character . . . Trouble.

I was already sick of Kyle and bored by Kim, but Joyce is about to put me off this show for good.  She's a shallow twit with nary an authentic bone in her body.  The "Dream Team" could be renamed the Real Team ... Brandi, Yolanda, Lisa and Carlton may all have more money than sense, but at least they display occasional flashes of genuine human in them.

Self-righteous Joyce seem to look for reasons to be offended and then tries to portray herself as the victim.  I'm especially tired of the way she throws the word "bully" around all the time when she doesn't like others' comments.  Reminds me of Alexis from RHOC!

Shame on you Joyce! Just because you call Brandi a racist and bully does not make your statements true.  You should know the definitions of these words before you attack someone’s character.  FYI a “racist” is someone with a prejudiced belief that one race is superior to others.  Brandi’s comment “You’re like a black person” was ignorant, but not racist.  If Brandi’s comment was racist than you must also be racists with your comment “You’re a blonde, but you’re not a bimbo”.  Are you saying all blondes are bimbos?  By the way, a bully is someone who hurts, persecutes, or intimidates weaker people.  Since you don’t appear to be a weak person and you fight back how is Brandi bullying you?

Joyce's emotional makeup is not the same as the other women AT ALL.  She is a bully.  She was coached by Kyle.  Joyce likes to make GIRLS cry.  Typical bully behavour.

It appears many posters here have no idea what "class" is. You don't buy it. You can not pretend to have it. A title does not give you class. A marital name does not give you class. Beauty does not give you class, nor does plastic surgery, great hair, a crown, or a spot on a reality show... Honey Boo Boo cones to mind.....

Joyce, Brandi, Yolanda and Lisa know they are now dealing with someone who is not on this show to pacify them.  Bravo to you and your hubby.  You are very beautiful and what is more beautiful is when you looked Lisa directly in her eyes and said "you're making excuses for them" Lisa was lost for words, the same with Yolanda.  I guess Yolanda, Lisa and Brandi have to think of another attack plan to save face.  Do not take any nonsense from these ladies.

Girl Joyce I almost died when you came back at Brandi when she started her only out, but my dog and the water works.  And you said but you treated me badly before your dog and Yolanda very well knowing you were right did the only thing she could do which is take her to her car. Please, what shit.  Everything you said at that table was dead on, you didn't say anything that didn't happen and you didn't change it up to suit the dinner to please everyone.  I wonder what would Brandi have done had her dog not gotten lost, what out would she have used.   I guess the only one she's used since the beginning; I'm single, I'm a single mother, I'm not as rich and don't let me forget I was cheated on.  And that gives me all the excuse in the world to say whatever and everyone need not say anything, cause poor me.

Joyce,

You are classy, a great addition to the show and a great example. Bravo on your comments and giving it back to the dream team. Finally someone showed Lisa that you don't have to say F-u to be a strong lady.

Joyce-

 

BRAVO!  I am so happy to finally have someone that doesn't take Brandi's evilness.  I didn't find it strange that your husband was defending you.  That is what a husband does. I have been so tired of everyone making excuses for Brandi's behavior for years now.  We all have problems in our lives, but don't act the way she does.  

 

I wish you luck with this group of Brandi enablers.  You explained the three stages of her behavior perfectly.  I have seen this pattern for all the seasons she has been on this show.  I am so glad that somebody on the show has finally put it out there.  :D

 

Anyway, keep being the sweet woman you are.  :)

If Brandi acted like she does towards you, to me; I would have no sympathy for her either. She is a basket case and taking all of her stuff out on you and its strange to watch. This girl needs help and the network needs to get her off of the screen.

I think Joyce is someone who has class but has been pushed beyond her limits with such bickering Brandi and boring Carlton. I believe those two have been on the show way past their time.

Joyce, I just love you to death. You have brought back some class to this show that they were slowly loosing. I admire the way you handled yourself at Lisa's "setup". You saw right through Lisa and Yolanda. Stand your ground and do not let Lisa or Yolanda talk you into their "Dream Team". Lisa kept trying to keep you from standing up for yourself, but girlfriend I have been waiting for someone to come on the show and put them in their place. Lisa thought by bringing in mutual friends that would impress you and your husband, but that Latin blood was not going for the bull shit. My problem with Kyle is that she wants everyone to get along and be nice, but they always are rude to her and Kim. Please stay on this show. I love the way you handle yourself. It was disgusting how Yolanda and Lisa attempted to justify Brandi disrespecting you and your husbaand. When Kyle asked about the hearts at Yolanda's party she got rude, and Kyle never used the f-word. But Brandi on the other hand is in a "DINER" in public disrespecting you and your husband. I can't stand Yolanda and Lisa. Joyce, you have beautiful hair and it is hard to keep it in place, I have the same problem. So if you have it and want to toss it , then do so. No one wants to comment on Carlton and her nasty behavior. I am not sure she is a man or woman? I need a bath after saying her name.

Love you and your husband. Don't let Lisa and Yolanda pull you into their control thing they have going. Joyce, I hope you see Lisa's comments to her dog when you went over to her house to make peace. That should show you can't trust her.

I have to say, Joyce led off her version of the dinner with out mentioning that when Brandi said, (very nicely) "Joyce, we have several mutual friends" that her immediate comeback was No we don't.  and then went as far as to make Brandi name ladies, her attitude towards Brandi, set Brandi into her (NOT SO COOL) attack mode, But sJoyce told it without any mention of her bating Brandi.  So, that's disappointing!  and I think Joyce needs to get a little MORE honest, since she says You Can't be Honest enough"  Anyway, I am at the point that the jury is still out on Joyce.  And her husband, He's blinded by what ever Joyce has previously told him, and I'm sure that he's aware how she paints a picture that isn't all TRUE! this I have witnessed watching her on TV.  But my biggest question is... to her fans, Do you think when she watches it and I am sure that she does, that she see's her actions?  Anyway, drama drums on, and we will all see how it plays out!

Joyce, loved that you stuck up for yourself.  I like Brandi but she has been out of line and there are far too many excuses.  you are her target - very crystal clear.  Be strong and very proud of you.

Joyce,

You have great showmanship, grace, and diplomacy. Continue being strong and true to who you are. I like your strength and positive attitude in life. Brandi has serious character flaws and finally, somebody standing up to her and stripping away her facade as this "you see what you get" cover-up shows her true vulnerabilities. However, these vulnerabilities do not excuse her from her outlandish and obscene behavior.

Joyce, you are a bully and NOT HONEST.  It will ALL come out girl.  Shame on you for deliberately making a vulnerable and sorrowful girl who just lost her favorite animal baby, cry.  You are so fake.  If you think you have been bullied, you ain't seen nothing yet babe.

 Racism is is born by ignorance, prejudism and discrimination, June.  Watch and understand the segment again re: "You're a blonde, but your not a bimbo"--She is merely exercising the same treatment handed to her by Brandi.  Why?  Sometimes an educated person needs to step down with hopes that Brandi (whose uneducated) will understand the point of what Joyce is saying.  If you notice, her she did understand by getting up and walked out. (FYI- sign of guilt.) Lisa got it when she said- Brandi realised she is losing the battle.  The point of what Joyce is saying is that from day 1- Brandi made a decision to make life hard for Joyce and not even give it a chance to meet her properly.

Brandi is malicious, heartless and a person whose behaviour is of a street walker.  Brandi's life skill is set from modelling which is an industry of superficial and jealousy.  Obviously, she does not know any better.

 If anyone can put Lisa & Yolanda in their place, it will be Joyce.  I say "go for it".  About time Lisa got knocked down a peg or two.

 @Seaweed Joyce speaking Spanish offends these people but when Yolanda speaks her language or German to Joyce husband it's all good.  When they damn well know in this country Spanish is like the second language.

 @Picket@fence Yes, Michael, well done attacking a single woman with your wife alongside. Real manly of you to threaten to bring a single,unprotected woman down. I wonder how brave you would be to throw such threats if there was a twice your size man sitting next to Brandi ?

 @IsabelaGonsales  @Seaweed Joyce needs to focus on English CLEARLY.  She has yet to master it AT ALL.  She is also NOT a girl's girl.  She likes to make girls cry.  That is not a girl who is wired like the rest of us.  Something is clearly OFF with Joyce.

Brandi doesnt' have a defense anyway.  She has targeted Joyce for some reason, most likely jealousy.  Brandi should think before she attacks other with her verbal assaults and trashy mouth.  Enough of Brandi for me .

but yet it's ok for brandi to call other females C*n*s!!! Funny how if Joyce stands up for herself it's so wrong cause "poor DRUNK" Brandi has problems so it's ok to act like an ass!!! And no matter how good of a person you think you are everyone has a breaking point!!!! Someone finally stood up to the drunk Brandi and now the Brandi kool aid drinkers are mad!!
