Brandi Glanville (above, far right) had Bravo viewers abuzz after Monday’s (Dec. 9) episode, where she called her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-star Joyce Giraud de Ohoven (above, far left) a “black person” because Joyce can’t swim.
Glanville called into “Watch What Happens Live” to explain herself:
I know what I said was definitely inappropriate, but I say a lot of inappropriate things. It definitely was not sensitive and I apologize to anyone I offended. But to be honest with you, my friends and I joke with each other this way and they’re from all different backgrounds. So I’m sorry and I guess TV’s not ready for the real Brandi, but should I censor myself? Is that gonna be exciting?
However, host Andy Cohen does not let her off the hook so easily, asking her point-blank if what she said was racist. Glanville responds:
“I think it was definitely inappropriate. I’m the least racist person of all time. I think the more you defend it, the more you look guilty, so I don’t really have to say that much more. I am very sorry with whomever I defended. Defended. Offended. Sorry, my phone is ringing,” says Glanville.
She adds on Twitter, “Im sorry for whomever I offended with my insensitive joke, I’m not racist Im just inappropriate 90 percent of the time!”
“RHOBH” co-star Kyle Richards (above, middle left) says that Glanville is not racist, she was just “trying to get a rise out of Joyce.” Richards also says it was “not a smart comment.”
What do you think, viewers?
