Joyce Giraud Slams Brandi Glanville for Putting “Black People in a Box”

Last night's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was truly unbelievable, especially with Brandi Glanville continually calling Joyce Giraud the wrong name and explaining that Joyce doesn't swim because of her racial background. Now, Joyce is responding.

"Brandi decides I should be Jacqueline because 'Joyce is an ugly name that should only be for old or fat pigs,'" Joyce writes in her Bravo blog. "Her behavior is so childish that I don't even know how to comment on that."

Joyce didn't appreciate that Brandi and Yolanda Foster used "peer pressure," as Joyce puts it, to get her in the pool. "I was quite shocked when Yolanda joined [Brandi], as she always tries to act and proclaim that she is a 'girl's girl,'" Joyce writes. "And FYI Yolanda, I don't know about you, but I've never heard that etiquette states that you must do everything your guests want you to do in order to be a good host."

But Joyce is most offended by Brandi's comment about how Joyce doesn't want to swim because she's black. "However, none of the peer pressure was as bad as Brandi's racial remarks," Joyce says. "How dare she put black people in a box!"

"My great grandmother was black," she continues. "So yes, I'm proud to say I'm a mix and very proud of my African lineage as well! But even if I didn't have it in my blood, I would still not tolerate her racial remarks. She stereotypes and labels because I tell her I can't swim (which I do swim but like a puppy)."

Joyce also says that, when she told the ladies at dinner about her role in Siberia, "they began to act dismissive, like horrible, jealous girls. What happened to Carlton's saying that women should be supportive of each other?"

How do you feel about Brandi's comments to Joyce?
