It was vacation time on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." The women headed off on a trip to Palm Springs and they didn't forget to pack plenty of drama! Brandi Glanville brought more than her share, especially after getting drunk. In fact, she brought along some racism as well.
After Joyce announced that she couldn't swim, Brandi said matter-of-fact, "You’re a black person.” The declaration stunned everyone, but Brandi stood by it. "It was a joke and my black friends would’ve laughed crazy, ‘cause they don’t go in the pool because they will get their weave f*cked up," she said, adding, "All my black friends can’t swim.”
She then innocently asked, "Is that bad?" Joyce clarified, "Yes, I’m black. What’s your problem? Puerto Ricans are black, they’re Indian and they’re Spanish. So I am a mix of three cultures and I’m very proud to represent all three.”
Wetpaint's Ryan Gajewski summed it up with, "Ughh," while Buddy TV's Gina Pusateri added, "Brandi just can't help inserting her big foot into her racist mouth.” The Stir's Rebecca Stokes suggested that Brandi may need some new friends. "A good friend of any race would hear that comment and hold you under the water until you've had time to realize you're being a racist banana-head."
Brandi called in to "Watch What Happens: Live" after the episode to try and do some damage control. "I think it was definitely inappropriate," she conceded. "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 to whoever I [offended].”
