Some new Real Housewives cast members have it easier than others. Unfortunately, for one of the newest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Joyce Giraud has been having more of a trial by fire first season, and it’s definitely leaving her with a low opinion of her own show.

Joyce, who is a former runner-up for Miss Universe, told the New York Daily News that she has been disgusted by some of her co-stars’ behaviors, specifically Brandi Glanville’s.
“At the beginning of the show, I really stopped myself from speaking out and tried to remain a lady. I really tried to give the women the benefit of the doubt, she said. “Then it changed because there is only so much a person can take.”
So far, we’ve yet to see any changes in Joyce’s attitude on the show, but she did call out the ladies’ bad behavior in the press.
“I was a bit disgusted to see how they treated me,” she said. “I pitied their behavior because as grown women, we should not be acting that way. It is disgusting.”
And, of course, she had some choice words for Brandi specifically.
“Who I don’t like? … Well, it’s Brandi, because I think Brandi is just an evil girl, who plays the victim and tries to stab people and act like she’s the victim.”
Joyce’s bad will toward Brandi continued to flow when Joyce appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night.
“I think watching this episode, I got mad at myself for being so lenient on her,” Joyce said after she saw Brandi making fun of her to Yolanda Foster. “So guess what? Her apology was fake, like she is. I think I should have known better and trusted my gut instinct. I still gave her the benefit of the doubt.”
But on her blog, Joyce intimates that she’s doesn’t regret being true to herself and keeping calm, although she does wish she had been more assertive.
“The one thing I am very happy about is that through this entire journey I did remain true to myself. I always accept peoples’ apologizes, even if they’ve hurt me, because I think as humans we all make mistakes.” she wrote. ” But in hindsight, I should have politely asked [Brandi] to pack her bags and leave the remainder of the trip.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Mondays at 8pm on Bravo.
