Joyce Giraud was brought aboard the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the show's fourth season in 2013. However, when it came to making a commitment with Bravo, Giraud was more than a little hesitant.
“They approached me when I was in the middle of filming Siberia and I thought that perhaps a reality show wasn’t the best thing for me at the moment," Giraud admitted in a new interview with Nicole Magazine, via Wetpaint Entertainment.
As any actress would be, Giraud was skeptical about what a reality career could mean in the world of acting. Would it prevent her from getting jobs? The possibility was certainly something to think about, but for Giraud, being able to get the world out quickly about her charity-based pageant outweighed the cons.
"I did watch the show before joining the cast and I knew it was a great platform," Giraud said. "All these women have used the platform that the show gave them for their different endeavors. I wanted to promote my charity based pageant, Queen of the Universe.”
Even after making the decision to join, Giraud worried about how she would be portrayed on the show and how she would handle all of the drama with the ladies.
“I was slightly scared,” Joyce confessed. “Specifically at the beginning when I saw that editing is a huge factor but I always remained true to myself and I think at the end of the day regardless of the editing the audience can see the real you.”
As for the upcoming fifth season of the show, it has yet to be announced whether or not Giraud will continued on with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
