Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Brandi Glanville tweeted an apology for a comment that she made during Monday's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after many people complained that the remark had been racist.
The 41-year-old reality star had had a bit too much to drink during a pool party when she told newcomer Joyce Giraud that it made sense that she couldn't swim because she was black.
"It was a joke and my black friends would've laughed crazy, 'cause they don't go in the pool because they will get their weave [expletive] up... All my black friends can't swim. Is that bad?" Glanville said after a moment of stunned silence.
Giraud then responded, "Yes, I'm black. What's your problem?"
"Puerto Ricans are black, they're Indian and they're Spanish. So I am a mix of three cultures and I'm very proud to represent all three," she added.
Glanville was blasted on social media as soon as the episode was broadcasted, even prompting a response from a fellow housewife.
"Not all black women wear hair weaves, half the women on Beverly Hills Housewives are wearing some fake hair. Brandi could not be more ignorant," tweeted Kenya Moore of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Glanville took to Twitter to apologize for her remarks and ask critics to stop taking out their anger on her friends.
I have apologized,I am sorry if I offended anyone especially my friends but I cant type 500000 tweets2every single person so enough said.XO— Brandi Glanville (@BrandiGlanville) December 10, 2013
"For all of you harassing my friends on twitter, please direct your problems towards me- I'm the only one responsible for myself #itsonme," she added.
Glaville also called in to Watch What Happens Live! with Andy Cohen to explain herself.
"I know what I said was definitely inappropriate, but I say a lot of inappropriate things. I'm not racist, I'm just inappropriate 90 percent of the time! It definitely was not sensitive and I apologize to anyone I offended," she said.
"But to be honest with you, my friends and I joke with each other this way," she added. "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?"
