Despite the rumors of Joyce and Carlton being cut from the RHOBH cast for next season, it’s only now that contracts are actually being handed out. It is starting to look like the rumors are true at least for Joyce. If I had to cut two women it would be Kim and Brandi. I think that the Beverly Hills franchise should try to stay classy. While I was not particularly fond of Carlton this season, I think if they would edit her differently, we might come to like her. I also don’t think they should replace whoever they cut. Seven housewives is too many. Five would give us more insight into the ladies, make a better show and cut costs. When I am running Bravo, that’s what I will do.
But for now, let’s take a look at Joyce’s blog this week. She starts off with the same old Brandi issues that we were all tired of, but her take on Yolanda was very interesting. I really liked Yolanda on her first season, but then the season two monster arrived. There is something that happens to all the Bravolebrities in their second season, and usually it is not pretty.
Here is what Joyce had to say about Yolanda.
Someone who truly caught me off guard, as I thought I would have loved her, was Yolanda. I was convinced we would become quick friends. The first day we met she gave me her number and I was so happy I called her right away the next morning to invite her to lunch. When we finally did lunch (on camera, mind you), she really surprised me as I was talking about my soft spot (my mother) I was teary eyed and she suddenly says: “This is boring, let’s talk about what happened at Carlton’s lunch” (referring to Lisa’s HairGate incident). Apparently it was far more interesting for her to throw her friend under the bus with the new girl than to get to know the new girl.
I realize that Yolanda is Dutch and that the Dutch are generally considered a bit brusque, but this is beyond brusque and into the land of just plain rude. It seems that Yolanda immediately did not take to Joyce and was only interested in talking storyline with her.
Her husband David has been a true gentleman each time I’ve met him. I LOVE her kids, and I’m good friends with her ex-husband. I really don’t understand where all the arrogance and the elitist behavior fits in. She tries to play the voice of reason, but it’s very obvious that she is out to attack Lisa and excuse Brandi. During the entire Reunion she gave me her back, as she was mad at the fact that I defended Lisa. Originally I was going to sit next to Carlton, but I changed to be away from her. as I didn’t want to deal with the negative energy. Had I known Yolanda would be so disrespectful and give me her back the entire time I would’ve rather dealt with Carlton’s negative energy than Yolanda’s arrogant behavior and her cutting me off every time I spoke.
So, David likes Joyce, Mohammed likes Joyce but Yolanda has an issue with her. Isn’t that interesting. Yolanda is not fond of Lisa either, yet Mohammed loves her. Seems like jealousy to me…
Anyhow. . .It’s only one more episode left until the journey is over. But I want you all to know that I will forever be grateful for the love and support you gave me.
Is it just me? Or is Joyce saying goodbye? I will really miss her. Thank God Siberia is coming back!
