Kenya Moore Blasts Brandi Grandville for Racist StatementPublished by on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at 10:00 am.
Call it the verbal battle of reality housewives. Following a perceived racist comment from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Brandi Grandville about Black folks not swimming Kenya Moore fired back with comments of her own.
In a nutshell, the ladies of RHBH were sitting poolside when Joyce Giraud de Ohoven
admitted she couldn’t swim. Upon hearing this, Brandi shot back: “You’re a Black person.” Although her buddies looked appalled at the statement, she later explained that she was talking about Black women and how they avoid swimming due to weaves.
But Kenya wasn’t having it, taking to Twitter to voice her feelings. “Not all Black women wear hair weaves,” she tweeted. “Half the women on RHOBH are wearing fake hair. Brandi cannot be more ignorant.”
Kenya did acknowledge that Brandi, being Puerto Rican, admits to being part Black herself, which does take the sting out of what she said. We’re glad the two have worked things out because we can’t have disunity amongst the Real Housewives’ franchise. Yeah, right — that’s what built the brand.
