There have been all sorts of rumors about who the next Real Housewife of Beverly Hills will be. There will likely be more than one. One that seems all but confirmed by Bravo is Joyce Giraud. This is a HUGE get for Bravo. Joyce is Puerto Rican (FIERY), a former Miss Puerto Rico, 2nd runner-up in Miss Universe and a former super model (GORGEOUS), married to an academy award-winning producer (RICH), very well-educated (SMART), and very seriously involved with numerous charities (A DECENT PERSON).
Joyce’s husband is Michael Ohoven, a German guy from a wealthy banking family who also does extensive charity work. He is a producer for both movies and TV. His production companies contribute to many charitable organizations, and he holds multiple positions with several of them, including CEO of the Foundation for UNESCO-Education for Children in Need and President of Hope for Children in Need. The couple has two young sons, Valentino and Fernando
Joyce has been in several movies, most recently The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and TV shows over the years and is a bona fide actress. In fact, she is starring in a new show on NBC that premieres on July 1, Siberia. Her husband is one of the producers. The story is a scripted drama that is sort of like Lost meets Survivor. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Siberia takes place more than 100 years after a meteor hits the remote Siberian territory of Tunguska in 1908. Sixteen competitors have descended on Tunguska not knowing the land’s mysterious past. When a contestant is badly injured and no help arrives, the contestants realize that strange occurrences are not part of the reality show. With their safety threatened, the contestants are forced to work together to survive. I’ll DEFINITELY be watching.
Joyce seems to have a lot in common with Yolanda. Is it possible the RHOBH is going to be a bit more civilized this season? The only real drama coming out of filming now is Mauricio’s alleged propensity for visiting the occasional dominatrix. I imagine the dramatics will be left to Kyle and Joyce will keep her nose clean. I think she may be my new favorite already!
