Turns out, the reality star had a strong (and accurate) hunch she'd be finding herself on the receiving end of rampant criticism following Monday night's episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, during which the outspoken mother of two made a racist joke aimed at costar Joyce Giraud which she has since deemed "definitely inappropriate."
"Dear Housewives Fans, It's me, Brandi G, and I've decided to take matters into my own hands. There are so many bulls--t blogs and BS and rumors out there, but I just wanted to give you guys a heads-up on what's about to happen. You're about to completely hate my guts," the Bravo star said in a YouTube video she posted on Thursday, Dec. 5, wearing a sexy Santa costume and sharing her spoiler alert for the upcoming episodes.
"Sadly, I'm a d--k in the next three episodes. However, I will say you don't get to see the entirety of what happened because they can't show everything they shot," she explained. "You don't understand why Joyce and I don't get along, you don't understand why I'm being a bitch to her it just looks like I'm being a bitch to be a bitch. I have to have a reason to be a bitch. I'm not just a bitch."
Well, then. So how did the beef between the Beverly Hills beauties seemingly begin?
During a girls' getaway weekend in Palm Springs, Glanville stripped down to a skimpy bikini and begged host Giraud to get in the pool.
"Please get in the water," she pleaded as Joyce continued to protest before admitting, "I can't swim."
To which Glanville replied: "You're a black person. All my black friends can't swim."
"Is that bad?" she added, horrifying Giraud and fellow costars Yolanda Hadid, Carlton Gebbia, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Lisa Vanderpump, in addition to viewers who were outraged by the controversial reality star's comments (to make matters worse, Brandi continued to offend Giraud by repeatedly calling her "Jacqueline" instead of "Joyce").
"Um, having said that, I would also like to apologize ahead of time for my inappropriate jokes and my drunkenness on vacation," Glanville continued in the YouTube clip (she also later apoligized via Twitter and her Bravo blog). "It's all about to happen, it's all about to go down and it's not going to be pretty and I know a lot of you are going to hate me more than you already do. But I just want to say that I really am a good person, I don't pretend to be a victim. I don't lie and I think I'm getting an ulcer knowing what's coming up."
She added: "But having said that, I think I've said my piece. Get ready for me being a dick and an a--hole and me being drunk on vacation. Did I mention that? And maybe making very inappropriate jokes that my friends might find funny but I don't think most of you will…There's a lot that goes on outside of shooting that you guys don't get to see. I'm not a complete a--hole. In these episodes I am, but I have a reason, kind of, you know, there's something there. Yeah, I just decided to do this, so hopefully you'll all forgive me and understand. Merry Christmas and happy holidays and I'm about to go out to dinner with a very sexy Wiccan and you know who she is," she ended her video, referring to costar Carlton Gebbia.
