Adrienne Maloof might be absent from the latest season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” but there’s already a new feud brewing, this time between Brandi Glanville and new castmate Joyce Giraud de Ohoven.
Giraud, one of two new additions to the fourth season’s cast, is an actress, model and former Miss Puerto Rico Universe. According to IMDB, Giraud has appeared in 15 film and television projects, including “Baywatch,” “House of Payne” and “Siberia.” She’s also the latest reality star to butt heads with Brandi Glanville.
Although the newest season of the Bravo show doesn’t begin until Nov. 4, Giraud, 38, has already begun to ignite drama by declaring that Glanville needs to head to rehab for an alleged alcohol addiction. Giraud repeated those remarks in a recent interview with Star magazine, where she gave the tabloid a tour of her pad.
“I did say Brandi needs rehab,” Giraud told the publication. “I stand behind that, and I’d say it all over again.”
Giraud also wasn’t shy about saying that she plans to take a direct approach with other cast members. “If someone f---s with me, they will hear from me,” she said. “I’m very opinionated.”
Glanville has made headlines as much for her very public separation and divorce from actor Eddie Cibrian, who left her for country singer LeAnn Rimes, as for her boozy antics on and off the air. It came as no surprise to fans when she unabashedly titled her tell-all memoir “Drinking and Tweeting” and put herself, holding a wineglass, on its cover.
Although the outspoken mom of two frequently jokes about alcohol, not all of her alcohol-related behavior has been flattering. In July, she had to be carried out of a West Hollywood restaurant by a male companion after photographers caught her stumbling outside and spilling out of her dress while visibly intoxicated.
But despite the slam, Glanville maintained that she doesn’t have a problem, tweeting on Wednesday, “I don’t need ‘help’. what I need is an alcohol endorsement deal.” She also mocked Giraud’s comments by jokingly tweeting a drinking schedule.
