Real Housewives of Beverly Hills newbie Joyce Giraud has been around beauty-pageant drama all her life. But she says that beauty-queen cattiness pales in comparison to that of her Real Housewives cast members.

"Oh, my God! Housewives are a million times cattier than pageant girls!" Joyce tells Parade. "I know pageant girls have a reputation for being catty, but Housewives are even cattier."

So is Joyce currently close to any of her fellow Housewives? "After filming, I’m on really good terms with most of them," she reveals. "We have dinners, we go out and hang out all the time. They give us the episode a couple days before, so we can blog, and we talk."

"We’re like, ‘Oh my God, did you see that?’" Joyce adds. "It’s great to have a little clique that you can talk about it and vent a little bit with, you know? A lot of the girls and I are in a really good space."

However, there are two notable exceptions to this. "I am really not on good terms with Brandi [Glanville]," Joyce says. "I really don’t like her — so I can tell you that, it’s not breaking news. And some of the other girls — like I said on my blog — were really hurtful to me. Like Carlton [Gebbia], for example."

"We never had a problem, and then you see these confessionals, and you see what they were really thinking and you’re like, 'You just should have told me to my face,'" Joyce says about Carlton.

Whose side are you on in the Brandi-Joyce feud?
