Ex-RHOBH Joyce Giraud Slams Kyle Richards And Cast For 'Bullying' And 'Ganging Up' On Lisa Vanderpump, Reveals If She'll Return To The Show For Season 10

Joyce Giraud is quite upset about the way Lisa Vanderpump was treated by her co-stars during the ninth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

As the cast continues to accuse Lisa of leaking a story about Dorit Kemsley “abandoning” a dog she adopted from Vanderpump Dogs to the media, Joyce took aim at the ladies for “bullying” and “ganging up” on her longtime friend.

“They are ganging up on Lisa. And it’s horrible to see,” Joyce told the Daily Mail on April 17. “Any decent human being can see how terrible it is what the other women are doing to Lisa. This season of bullying is the worst because of what Lisa has been going through. She just lost her brother. She was enclosed in sadness. I don’t see how an entire group can gang up on her.”

“People should have rallied around her. Lisa needed support. They kicked her when she was down,” Joyce continued. 

According to Joyce, Lisa’s co-stars should have believed she wasn’t the person behind the leaked Radar Online story the moment she swore on the lives of her children.

“I don’t think Kyle Richards is being a good friend. Kyle Richards is part of the group ganging up on her,” Joyce added.

Joyce first met Lisa after being brought to the cast in a full-time role during its fourth season. And, at the time, Joyce said she was quickly warned by the other ladies, including Kyle, that Lisa was “a bad person.”

“All the girls were trying to tell me Vanderpump was a bad person. Kyle kept trying to talk bad about Lisa on my season. Brandi (Glanville) even called me and said Lisa is very mean. But I kept saying ‘I don’t see it,'” shared Joyce.

While Joyce couldn’t confirm rumors claiming Lisa will quit the RHOBH after season nine, she did say she and Lisa have had “multiple discussions” about her leaving the show.

“I can’t say where’s she’s leaning as a friend., but yes… she’s considered it,” Joyce shared. “As a friend, I think she should not do it anymore. She’s way too successful. She likes to empower other people. Look at how much she has going on in her life. It’s incredible.”

As for her own potential return to the show, Joyce said she knew midway through her first season that the series was not the right platform for her and now says she’d rather swim with actual sharks “than swim with those sharks again.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season nine airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.

  1. Joyce sounds remarkably like….a friend. The onus is now on LVP to choose wisely and to see people for who they are, not who you wish they were. Gotta learn the lessons.

  2. Love that Lisa and Joyce are still friends after all this time, Joyce is so positive and far too nice for this show. She is also confirming pretty much what Dorit claims about Kyle too. I am so annoyed that Dorit didn’t stick with that this season.

        1. Though I think the show would benefit having her back. It desperately needs a voice of reason that speaks up to all the bullshit going on, and Joyce proved to be that voice.

          1. It does. I remember how nasty Yolanda and Brandi were to her at the reunion and Joyce held her chin up and gave it right back to them.

          2. I never forgot that either, Yolanda turned her back at Joyce at the reunion, and tried to shut her down constantly.
            Andy didn’t condemned that behavior, per usual. He just couldn’t allow Joyce to elaborate on how Yolanda and Brandi tried to set her up agains LVP.

          1. That was just fucked up. Lisa handled that much better than I would’ve. Brandi would have gone dowwwn. I’d have cleaned her clock and spit on the bloody corpse. I may be small but I’m scrappy. Lol!

          2. I feel like Brandi needs a good ass woopin to put her in her place and you’re the one to do it! Haha #TeamMikeyCat

          3. It was the slap heard ’round the world. Blabbi deserved to be ousted from that action, alone.

          4. A slap to one’s face, even playfully, is insulting and invading one’s personal space. Brandi got more vulgar than that when she asked Pinky if Pinky wanted Brandi to eat Pinky’s pussy to get back in her good graces.

    1. I think the one time I felt a little unhappy with Lisa was when she laughed at Brandi making fun of Joyce. I actually think she was uncomfortable and she seemed a little bit afraid of drunk Brandi so she humoured her but it wasn’t pleasant. She has since said she wished she was different.

      1. Not one of Lisa’s shining moments. She can go too far to defend her friends. Oddly, that was about the same time Brandi started to turn on her. Brandi was pissed that Lisa was trying to ‘mother’ when she tried to talk to Brandi about her drinking. No good deed goes unpunished.

        1. This is exactly it – she was defending Brandi out of loyalty but Brandi didn’t deserve it. It was hard to watch. I think Lisa knew that Brandi was turning on her and she didn’t quite know what to do because she knew what a mean bitch Brandi could be.

        2. True Mikeycat, that was also the time as Lvp was reprimanding Brandi, The fake Yolanda put in her rusted cents worth in defense of a drunken Brandi. Oh well, Brandi & Yo deserved each other.

      2. I remember that. Lisa laughed at everything Blabbi said. At that time, I considered Lisa’s reaction to be an automatic response. She couldn’t suppress her laughter. Clearly, she didn’t think of Joyce’s feelings. In P.R., Joyce was unaware of how bad things were for Lisa. In the end, they befriended each other.

        1. Agreed. Lisa said afterwards that sometimes in a really awkward situation she tries to laugh it off so it doesn’t become a bigger deal. I think she knew the ramifications of what Brandi said at the pool to Joyce so she tried to minimise it as a joke.

      1. Yes indeed. Lisa just needs to learn she can’t teach creatures like Brandi, Cedric and Taylor how to behave and just leave them in the gutter where they belong.

          1. I think that’s why she has a good relationship with Joyce. Joyce isn’t broken or needy and as a result is capable of being/ having friendships.

        1. Agree wholeheartedly. At some point you have to acknowledge the danger in uplifting riff raff. I wouldn’t want to quell her generous spirit, just ask her to heed the red flags.

    2. Yes. Seemed Brandi was projecting by telling Joyce how “mean” Lisa is. I wonder how LVP has made it through all these seasons without body armour.

  3. For being treated like a second class citizen, Joyce’s main crime was: she was too happy! Blabbi, the miserable wretch couldn’t stand to see a loving husband, Herr Baby, dote on & defend his incredibly gorgeous wife. It drove Blabster & YoDULL to distraction. Neither one of them had that kind of man to support them. Byle was insanely jealous of Joyce’s fantabulous hair.

  4. Bring Joyce back and fire the wretched five… Definitely keep LVP and bring back Denise… After watching Camille crying about being bullied her first season and then asking Kyle of all people to be her bride’s maid sealed it for me.

  5. More proof that that chubby, bow-legged little midget Kyle is the nasty backstabber I’ve always known her to be. She’s been pretending to be LVP’s friend all along while talking about her behind her back. I hope LVP finally sees this classless gossip-monger for who she is. I mean, Kyle’s own sisters see her for the selfish, mean-girl that she is and avoid her like the plague. AND Kyle’s BFF is the morally-corrupt Faye Resnick. Kind of speaks volumes about Kyle.

  6. Joyce could be a little silly, but I liked her. Kyle hated that she couldn’t manipulate her. Plus, Joyce had better hair. Lol!

    1. Kyle was so sly getting Joyce to disinvite Carlton from Joyce’s trip to PR – the one person Kyle knew would take Lisa’s side over her. And then Kyle went and invited Brandi who was horrible to Joyce.

          1. LOL! Good! Kyle really outed herself this year and is probably furious she can’t pin that on LVP.

          2. ITA. If anyone got “sloppy” this season it was Kyle. She is so used to getting away with it every season she got careless. And brave because she had back up.

        1. That was one of the best episodes ever. Especially when Mo made Byle eat crow so he could get Camille’s listing.

  7. More proof that that chubby, bow-legged little midget Kyle is the nasty backstabber I’ve always known her to be. She’s been pretending to be LVP’s friend all along while talking about her behind her back. I hope LVP finally sees this classless gossip-monger for who she is. I mean, Kyle’s own sisters see her for the selfish, mean-girl that she is and avoid her like the plague. AND Kyle’s BFF is the morally-corrupt Faye Resnick. Kind of speaks volumes about Kyle.

    1. I spat out my tea with your description of Kyle I know I shouldn’t laugh but the bow-legged bit – it’s kinda true.

    2. Yes, confirmation of Kyle’s duplicity is finally here. Not that we didn’t know. Still, good to hear it from Joyce.

    1. Joyce was married to a man who loved and supported her, was beautiful, was happy and wealthy. And had better hair than Kyle.

      1. I thought her husband was lovely – very handsome, articulate and didn’t take any bull off the women. They are a lovely couple.

  8. For being treated like a second class citizen, Joyce’s main crime was: she was too happy! Blabbi, the miserable wretch couldn’t stand to see a loving husband, Herr Baby, dote on & defend his incredibly gorgeous wife. It drove Blabster & YoDULL to distraction. Neither one of them had that kind of man to support them. Byle was insanely jealous of Joyce’s fantabulous hair.

      1. She was terrible to Joyce, smug & sarcastic. However, Carlton served one purpose that was no small feat. She called out Vyle each & every time the little twerp pulled something. In addition, Carlton was kind toward LVP.

        1. Carlton scared me, but boy was she great with Kyle-she did not allow a thing to slip by. It’s as if she saw straight through into Kyle’s deceitful heart.

          1. Carlton was a homely thing. She was overly sexual toward Blabbi, her MIL, her man, etc. It was too much. Her reactions to Kryle were spectacular. She called out the vindictive twerp, as necessary. Carlton was spot on in her depiction of KR.

          2. Oh yes Medusa, All of that was happening, she sure was into some weird stuff.
            She did go up a notch for me though with calling out Kyle the way she did.
            I felt she dabbled in witch craft & not like Bewitched either. She was dark.

    1. Joyce was so confident and sure of herself and had a man that loved her deeply. Pretty similar to Lisa and I think this is what kills them.

      1. Yesssssssssss – it drove the hags crazy. It’s similar to Lisa & Ken’s long running marriage. Ken has supported Lisa’s every endeavor & lets her shine.

        1. Yup Father time actually asked Erika to go to her room. Who talks to their wife in this way in this day and age? No wonder when she broke, she screamed, “You don’t know what I go through every night.” Then tried to make that about her son.
          Hamlin and his dark secrets-who knows what Rinna knows-he is never there for her.

          Kyle and mauricio-Mauricio is so done-their business lunch looked like it was a business lunch. He can’t afford to divorce her.
          Dorit -no way would she have married PK if he was a bus driver.
          manhands -that guy is just plain weird.

          LVP on the other hand-it is almost like he loves to see her succeed and shine . Like I said in another thread-I wish I had a husband like Ken.

  9. Joyce Giraud is beautiful and classy. NO way in HELL she fits n with the BH cast. Every time Joyce and Kyle filmed alone together, it was so obvious Kyle was jealous. After all, Kyle was the one with the long beautiful lustrous locks UNTIL Joyce came along. If they ever show the reruns of Kyle and Joyce together, watch Kyle trying to upstage her, slinging the hair around and such. It’s funny because Joyce is always the star and beauty of the scene.

    Beverly Hills is a VERY small town and Kyle being Queen Mean Girl is really no accomplishment at all. I just don’t care to watch her or Rinna anymore. They’re boring. Teddi/Dorit are no great addition and Camille is showing she hasn’t changed AT ALL.

  10. All we ever see of Erika is with her so called Glam Squad and preparing for the show I’m totally NOT interested in. She has a niche audience, I get it, but don’t particularly find the constant clown show and costumes entertaining.

    1. I don’t understand how Erika has any fans – I assume they are more fans of her costumes and make up which are other peoples creations, not hers. She brings nothing to the show but the same old “dance” moves.

      1. I think you are right. She’s popular with the drag queen crowd because her costumes are so over the top they’d work well in drag shows- plus the pat the puss antics- all useful in drag shows.

        1. ITA. I don’t get though why they think SHE is great when it’s her make up artists etc that are the ones doing the work.

  11. I remember Joyce trying to warn Lisa about what her “friends” were saying behind her back. Lisa didn’t believe her and defended her “friends”. Of course Joyce was telling the truth. I am so glad Lisa and Joyce are both capable of understanding and compassion, putting that season behind them. They have found a true friendship. The rest of the cast should take notes.

    1. Lisa did the same when Kyle said that Yolanda talked behind her back in Paris and said she is not their friend. She said she didn’t believe Yolanda would do that. I think deep down she knew but she wanted to be loyal to someone who was supposed to be her friend. Lisa’s mistakes are usually born from misplaced loyalty.

  12. Powerful words from Joyce: ‘she’d rather swim with actual sharks than swim with those sharks again’. Out of the mouth of class straight to the ears of a group of gutter trash. To hear also that Kyle & low Brandi played their usual dirty with Lvp, trying to tarnish a decent woman’s reputation. Planting their usual evil seeds of destruction. Well, looky here, look at where Brandi is today & where Kyle & her cohorts soon will be.

    1. According to Joyce, Vyle was talking crap behind LVP’s back in 2013 while pretending they were best friends. I’m not sure why I’m surprised. After all, look how she treats her sisters.

      1. That’s the truth timdun, Her treatment of her own sister’s speaks volumes, so then, who is Lvp to her? All Kyle is interested in is Kyle.

        1. Very true Starr. When Vyle says she sees LVP like a sister, that’s not a role anyone would be eager to take on. In fact it’s a warning signal to run in the opposite direction.

  13. Wow. Joyce finished two BA degrees by 19 and opened a school with YOU Foundation in Senegal thanks to the Queen of the Universe pageant she started. Joyce has a LOT to offer. This is the kind of woman who deserves a Bravo pay check.

  14. The Gang of Hate are very quiet since Lisa revealed their off camera meeting in the Polo Lounge. I wonder did they see her that night?

    1. Hi Bev, maybe, maybe not & if they did, would that bother those evil hearted witches? remember too that after that they met in some restuarant where Kyle evilly & gleefully gave her version of Villa Rosa to the coven & Dorit & Teddi feigned shock? ( We all saw that quip). If they seem quiet, it’s because they taste fear in their mouths for their fate because of the backlash received from fans. Remorse? not a drop!!!

      1. Hi Starr! Those crones are so hard necked that it probably doesn’t bother them deep down – just look at all the lies they have been spewing all season. But it is very embarrassing for them to again be exposed for setting up another sham scene and conversation about Lisa. They claimed we would all see the truth and that Lisa stopped filming because she was caught – the only thing that has been exposed is their lies and Lisa stopped because THEY were caught.

        1. Correct Bev, all of it. Just a few nights ago on WWHL, Rinna said to keep watching. WHY? I asked myself. Pointless,no longer want to see them– stab each other is their only way going forward. Lvp is no longer available for their stabs so next in line please! Glad they know now & let them pay high for their wrongs. Not a minute too soon for the likes of me.

    2. We probably won’t have to wait too long before they come with another bunch of lies in reply to what Lisa revealed. They are just trying to find the best version where they could come clean while vilifying Lisa.

  15. Isn’t interesting that Vyle and Blandi were making negative remarks about Lisa behind her back to Joyce. At this time Lisa had no clue what was to transpire, as far as she knew, her friendships were still all intact. At the same time, Vyle was also pretending to be Joyce’s friend. Obviously Vyle wasn’t pleased that Joyce had realised her own mistake and became friends with Lisa. It was the one time she hadn’t succeeded in putting a wedge between Lisa and someone else. I wonder if they called Carlton too?!
