Brandi Glanville’s recent comments on this weeks episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” had her doing damage control.

During a vacation episode to Palm Springs, Glanville asked Joyce Giraud, 38, to get into the pool.

“I can’t swim,” Giraud admitted, while lounging on a chair out of the water.

“You’re a black person,” said Glanville, 41.

Insert awkward silence from the rest of the cast members that were sitting poolside.

Glanville’s explanation on the show probably didn’t make things any better.

“It was a joke, and my black friends would have laughed crazy because they don’t go in the pool because they will get their weaves [messed] up,” Glanville explains on the testimonial.

“All my black friends can’t swim,” she then explains to the group.

Giraud explained since she is Puerto Rican, she is a mix of black, Indian and Spanish, so she took the comment with offense. “I am a mix of three cultures and I’m very proud to represent all three,” Giraud said.

Today, Glanville tweeted her response, saying “Im sorry for whomever I offended with my insensitive joke, I’m not racist I’m just inappropriate 90 percent of the time!”

Because being racially inappropriate isn’t the same thing.

    I think I’m more in shock that the Puerto Rican cast member stated and accepted her black heritage. Her quote had my eyes bugging out. You’ll never hear J. Lo making those heritage claims. But anyway, in this week of “The Darnedest things Annoying & Ignorant Whites Say” I’m just over this and would like to go on ignoring these folks who know full well what they are saying and doing when saying racially insensitive remarks. Silence is deafening. I sincerely believe there needs to be a class on the affects of White Supremacy, institutionalized racism, classicism, etc, in high school because these occurrences are so frequent lately and whether these people are truly oblivious to their remarks effects or completely aware there needs to be some sort of change instead of half-assed apologies after several insults and/or black face public appearances. Side eye…

    Is this the same woman that was married to Eddie Cibrian?

      I know, self hating is so common it’s a surprise when someone actually accepts their heritage. And this woman is pale white too! I wonder how long it will take for dark skinned Dominicans to accept they’re black??

    • Sad to say, but I too found that more shocking than Brandi being racist..

      I find (anecdotal experience) Puerto Rican people to be quite different from Dominicans in this way. Puerto Ricans are genarally more prideful of being Puerto Rican (culture) than “white” and tend to rock with black folks more.

    @JS – I absolutely love Yolanda. I think she is so down to earth and classy. I agree with you regarding Brandi. I don’t think she is racist at all but very ignorant. I don’t like that just because her so called black friends let her get away with ignorance doesn’t mean that she can say anything and everything to all black people.

    I think this woman’s problem is that she doesn’t have a filter. Just because something pops into your head, doesn’t mean it needs to come out of your mouth.
    Stupid comment? Yes. Racist? Not in my opinion.
