joyce giraud brandi glanvillle real housewives of beverly hills 'Real Housewives' Brandi Glanville defends racist remark on 'Watch What Happens Live'Brandi Glanville (above, far right) had Bravo viewers abuzz after Monday’s (Dec. 9) episode, where she called her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-star Joyce Giraud de Ohoven (above, far left) a “black person” because Joyce can’t swim.

Glanville called into “Watch What Happens Live” to explain herself:

I know what I said was definitely inappropriate, but I say a lot of inappropriate things. It definitely was not sensitive and I apologize to anyone I offended. But to be honest with you, my friends and I joke with each other this way and they’re from all different backgrounds. So I’m sorry and I guess TV’s not ready for the real Brandi, but should I censor myself? Is that gonna be exciting?

However, host Andy Cohen does not let her off the hook so easily, asking her point-blank if what she said was racist. Glanville responds:

“I think it was definitely inappropriate. I’m the least racist person of all time. I think the more you defend it, the more you look guilty, so I don’t really have to say that much more. I am very sorry with whomever I defended. Defended. Offended. Sorry, my phone is ringing,” says Glanville.

She adds on Twitter, “Im sorry for whomever I offended with my insensitive joke, I’m not racist Im just inappropriate 90 percent of the time!”

“RHOBH” co-star Kyle Richards (above, middle left) says that Glanville is not racist, she was just “trying to get a rise out of Joyce.” Richards also says it was “not a smart comment.”

What do you think, viewers?
