“RHOBH” Star Brandi Glanville Apologizes for Racist On-Air Comments
Brandi Glanville has a habit of getting herself into trouble with her words, and her latest predicament is no different.
According to E! News, he reality star got on the phone with “Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen on Monday night to defend comments she made on camera about her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-star.
That same night, a “RHOBH” episode featured new Real Housewife Joyce Giraud being unwilling to get into the pool because she can’t swim.
“You’re a black person,” Glanville said, laughing. “All my black friends can’t swim. Is that bad?”
In the confessional, Giraud replied, “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 am very proud to represent all three.”
On “WWHL,” Cohen proceeded to call Glanville, who apologized and admitted that her “joke” was inappropriate and insensitive, but she denied being a racist.
“I think it was definitely inappropriate. I’m the least racist person of all time,” she added. “I think the more you defend it, the more you look guilty, so I don’t have to say that much more. I’m very sorry with whomever I offended.”
Another “RHOBH” star, Kyle Richards, defended Glanville’s unfortunate words as “not the greatest thing to say,” but remarking that Brandi was “just trying to get a rise out of Joyce…”
