Two time Miss Puerto Rico Joyce Giraud, and friend of the Hadid family, has reportedly joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for the show’s upcoming fourth season.
“Joyce is going to make an excellent addition to the cast,” a source confirmed to Radar Online on May 31. “She has it all: looks, brains … and Joyce is feisty.”
“Joyce is married to successful movie producer, Michael Ohoven, and they have two young children together,” the source continues. “Joyce is a straight shooter, so it will be very interesting to see how the rest of the cast reacts to her.”

In addition to her pageant success, Joyce also has a pretty impressive acting career. She has appeared in movies including The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Slayer, and Dude, Where’s My Car?, and as well as several television appearances on Joey, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and even Baywatch — to name a few.
According to Joyce’s Twitter account, she’s following all of the ladies from the show and is followed by original housewife Kyle Richards. Joyce is also following a few Real Housewives fan sites.
Joyce seems to be tied to the group through her friendship with Mohammed Hadid and his family. Fans will likely recall meeting Mohammed a couple of seasons ago as the close friend of Lisa Vanderpump. Once season 3 rolled around, Mohammed’s ex-wife Yolanda Foster joined the cast. Apparently, Mohammed is the guy to be around if you’re scouting housewives!

When The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns to Bravo later this year, Joyce won’t be the only new face. According to reports, former actress Carlton Gebbia will also be included in the cast.
Following season 3, the successful series lost three of its cast members including Adrienne Maloof, Camille Grammer, and Marisa Zanuck.
