Nobody thinks everything they see on reality T.V. is 100% real. Unless that sentence is a revelation to you. In which, I also have some news for you about Pegasus. I'm so sorry. I know. I also love winged steeds. But all the same, fakery runs rampant in TV Land and we don't mind -- it makes for better viewing.
To that end, it's common knowledge that some of our favorite Real Housewife beefs are pumped full of extra delicious and exaggerated gossip sauce (barf). But it looks like this feud between Joyce Giraud and Brandi Glanville is actually real, and actually getting out of hand.
After the infamously over-served queen of saying exactly the wrong thing Brandi crossed new girl Joyce (better known to Brandi as Jacqueline) on the show, Joyce struck back issuing all sorts of statements about Brandi's destructive behavior. She called Brandi racist, an alcoholic, and then teased moments so outrageous Bravo wouldn't even air them!

From what we've seen so far this season, it doesn't sound like Joyce is doing anything other than speaking the truth. Of course, as a rookie cast member she doesn't know that stirring up this pot (full of bees) could have dire consequences. And I mean more dire than me shaking my head at the screen and murmuring, "ohhhhh girrrrrl - no!"
The real kicker in all this is that Brandi claims it's JOYCE who's being destructive. BGlans (sounds like a medical condition - whatever, I'm keeping it) says that Joyce's "slander" is apparently costing her jobs. Gee, that's funny, I could have sworn that if anything, it was Brandi's drunken, borderline-sociopathic behavior airing on national television that was costing her work? Never trust a woman who slips into baby-voice while drunk. It's an eerie, bad scene, y'all.
It's been a while since there's been a Housewives brawl this genuine. For all my snide gossip-lady sniping at Brandi, she does make some good points. You don't go around calling someone an alcoholic. If you're genuinely concerned you talk to them and try to get them the help they need. Brandi has said before that Joyce can't handle anyone else getting any attention -- Joyce continuing to poke this beast proves she might be right!
Do you think Joyce is concern-trolling or does she have real concerns about Brandi?
