Meow! The claws are coming because the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are extremely jealous of former beauty queen, Joyce Giraud, who has joined the hit Bravo television series, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The two-time Miss Puerto Rico, and second runner up in the 1998 Miss Universe pageant and actress, "isn't getting a warm reception from the housewives. They are all green with jealousy because Joyce is absolutely stunning. She has it all, looks, brains and a loving family," the insider told Radar.
"Brandi Glanville is used to being the young, hot housewife and having all of the attention from the men, and Joyce is a threat. Brandi isn't happy that she is going to be upstaged by Joyce. Kim Richards doesn't understand what all the fuss is about concerning Joyce, and doesn't think Joyce is anything special in the looks department."
As Radar was first to report, Giraud recently began filming with the ladies of the 90210.
"Joyce is going to make an excellent addition to the cast. Joyce is married to successful movie producer, Michael Ohoven, and they have two young children together," a source previously said.
"Joyce is a straight shooter, so it will be very interesting to see how the rest of the cast reacts to her.”
Bravo producers pursued Giraud "with a vengeance because they really wanted to mix it up for the fourth season. Joyce has won several major beauty pageants, and none of the others come close to her in the looks department," the insider said.
"It was a very calculating and provocative maneuver to cast Joyce. Producers are expecting to really mix it up with Joyce."
Fun fact: Giraud is the youngest housewife on the Beverly Hills franchise at 38-years-old.
