Joanna Krupa is suing Brandi Glanville, demands trial by jury (update)


FFN_Krupa_Joanna_VAHBJJ_012215_51633411

Nearly two weeks ago, Life & Style had an exclusive on Joanna Krupa and Brandi Glanville’s ongoing feud – go here to recap. The basic gist is that Joanna talked some trash about Brandi and Brandi entered into some kind of intense blood feud. Brandi repeatedly made claims and comments that Krupa slept with Mohamed Hadid (Real Housewife Yolanda Foster’s ex-husband) and Brandi claimed Hadid had told her that Krupa had a stank, smelly biscuit. L&S’s exclusive was that Krupa was suing Brandi for “slander, libel and defamation.” Then, late last week, the story cropped up again like it was brand new. I didn’t cover it because I was like, “I already wrote about that, what gives?” Well, I guess Krupa finally filed the paperwork for the lawsuit, plus Krupa is talking to the press.

Real Housewives drama is to be expected, but Joanna Krupa and Brandi Glanville’s issues with one another hit below the belt—literally. Krupa filed a lawsuit against the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Wednesday in Miami-Dade County citing “slander, slander per se and intentional infliction of emotional distress” over past claims Glanville has made about the model’s alleged affair with Mohamed Hadid and her allegedly smelly vagina. Now, Krupa is “demand(ing) a trial by jury” and “intends to amend her complaint and seek punitive damages against Glanville.”

After filing her suit against Glanville, the Real Housewives of Miami star told E! News exclusively, “Bullying hurts!”

In the suit, Krupa claims that Glanville “knowingly made the false and malicious statement” that she had “sexual relations” with Hadid while he was married to Yolanda Foster. Krupa also claims Glanville “knowingly made the false and malicious statement that Mr. Hadid told her that Mr. Krupa’s ‘p–sy smelled.’” These statements were made on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live in November 2013. During this appearance, Glanville claimed that Lisa Vanderpump witnessed Hadid’s statements about Krupa’s allegedly stinky private areas.

Per Krupa’s suit, Hadid, Foster and Vanderpump “denied the truth of Glanville’s statements and publicly confirmed Mr. Hadid never made the statements Glanville said were true and attributed to Mr. Hadid, and advised and/or confirmed that Glanville’s defamatory statements were false.”

The lawsuit goes on to state that in December 2014, Glanville made additional “false and malicious statements” claiming “that Mrs. Krupa’s vagina was malodorous” on WWHL’s YouTube Channel “Bravo’s Watch What happens Live Clubhouse.” During this appearance, she asked host Andy Cohen, in relation to Krupa, if he “[got] food poisoning from bad sushi,” noting the model was stunning, “but you can’t help the odor situation.” Krupa claims Glanville made these statements publicly knowing they were false.

On Jan. 6, Krupa’s attorney Raymond Rafool wrote a letter to Glanville stating his client’s intent to sue for libel, slander and defamation and asked for an apology and a retraction of these comments. Per the suit filed this week, Glanville has yet to apologize to Krupa or retract her statements.

[From E! News]

Demanding a trial by jury? ODOR IN THE COURT!! I’m sorry, sometimes it’s like I’m a 12-year-old. But seriously, can you imagine being so peeved about someone insulting your biscuit? Enough to file a lawsuit and demand to talk about your odor in a court of law?!!? And you know, witnesses are going to have to be called. Krupa’s biscuit is going to be put on trial.

According to People Magazine, Krupa sent a letter to Brandi on January 6th demanding a public apology. Krupa warned that if Brandi didn’t apologize, she would file suit. Apparently, Krupa is only asking for $15,000 in damages too. That seems… low. Is her biscuit’s aromatic integrity only worth $15K? (Update: Krupa’s representative contacted us to clarify that her lawsuit is seeking a minimum of $15,000, not 15k total. He wrote “It is worded like that since it’s a Florida court formality.“)

    LeAnn’s pit bulls have been gloating over this on twitter.
    Brandi does not look good in that picture.
    If someone insulted my lady parts, I’d probably nor want to deign to mention it, not keep bringing it up for everyone to contemplate. I hope I’m never in a position where I have to shill my feminine odours for publicity. Lord help me.

    • Loopy says:

      As insufferable as Leann is, I’m sorry i think we all just felt sorry for Brandi because of how her marriage ended and that she had a lower profile. But now I can honestly say Brandi is just as bad if not worse than Leann in terms of her character.

      • Charlotte says:

        I don’t follow Brandi and have never watched any Real Housewives of anywhere, but outside of being treated poorly I don’t see her appeal.
        LeAnn fascinates me on a whole different level. I’ve expressed before, but I truly feel we’ll be studying her case in psych class before too long.

      • jenn12 says:

        Brandi is nowhere near the level of Leann’s issues. Leann is a sociopath who manipulates, stalks, and harasses, all while using two kids against their own mother. She actually tried to toss Brandi out of her own kids’ lives and her POS husband helped her with it. They’re both insane.

      • thetruthhurts says:

        charlotte, if you admit to not following her or not watching housewives, how can you say you dont see her appeal if you know nothing else about her? Bias much?

      • Charlotte says:

        truthhurts, because I’m on a gossip site where I read about her and her antics from many posters. I’m not knocking her, I just have never experienced the level of adoration of some others. I wish her well.
        Can’t believe my comment got you so riled, it was hardly derogatory. Keep on keeping on, though.

      • Dirty Martini says:

        No we all just don’t feel sorry for her anymore. We are sick and tired of her trashiness. Whatever happened to her n the cheating scandal, it doesn’t give her a pass to be such trash.

        Most of us are just plain over her, LER, EC, and the whole thing. THeir 15 minutes were up long ago.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      It might be embarrassing to drag it out longer with a lawsuit and more mention of it, but Glanville needs to be put in her place formally in a court of law. She has got to be the trashiest loudest mouthed, ignorant twit on TV. I hope this really shuts her down and she disappears for good. All three in the career media triangle that is Glanville, Cibrian, and Rhymes need to go away and be forced to live like the low-lifes they are.

      • Pandy says:

        Well said!

      • FLORC says:

        That’s an extreme bias based mostly on gossip and opinions formed from such things.

        In truth most women get an unalanced ph level in their biscuit and an odor comes from that. Not from lack of sanitation.
        Clearly neither women has much of a life that this needs to be hashed out in court. Both ladies come out looking bad. That Krupa couldn’t just move on says a lot.

        Did anyone else see the TMZ interview with Krupa and her husband in his Jeep? She was ranting and he seemed over it and couldn’t believe she was going on about it to the camera. It was funny with sympathy for the man.
        I liked Krupa until this. She’s coming off desperate. Everyone knows Brandi is pretty nutty. Why engage? Get over it.

    • atrain says:

      Agreed – I don’t care what you say about me (or my nether-regions), because I would want it to be long forgotten. A wave of the hand and a simple statement like “Oh, Brandi. Why would anyone believe anything she says?” would have looked better than this mess.
      True or not, if she keeps bringing it up, it’s all anyone is going to think about when they see her.

      • smith says:

        ^^This^^

        I would NEVER have thought twice about any of this, no adult-acting person would have (for goodness sake, Brandi with an “i” said it).

        Except now that Joanna keeps flinging it in everyone’s face (pun intended), when I see her picture I think “BISCUIT BAD, NO FLY ZONE.”

        And thanks to lawyers who have proven they will indeed take ANY case (how proud they must feel), she is forever tainted.

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        Good point. If she had blown it off, it would be over with by now.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      I am not surprised by this at all. God forbid, SkeezAnn or her trolls, ever take the high road on anything.

      She is flipping her awful extensions because Glanville is currently on two TV shows, one on a major network, and her pathetic excuse for a “reality” show was canceled. No one is interested in buying her annoying yodel music anymore, and they haven’t in decades, therefore, she has been forced to book shows playing next to Gorilla cages. What a loser.

      Nevermind Krupa, if anyone stinks, it’s ShartAnn.

      • noway says:

        This is funny, because this story has nothing to do with Leann. Only if you think that everything Brandi does is because of LeAnn or vice versa?

        Joanna Krupa can’t sue Leann because Leann didn’t say this on public television. I hope Joanna wins. Sorry but that is one of the trailer trashiest things to say about anyone. You Brandi fans need to upgrade your idol. She has no talent, overdone face and is mean, all because her man with a sleazy woman cheated on her. Get over it, a lot of women are cheated on doesn’t give you carte blanche to be a douche.

      • why? says:

        Another post rewriting history to make Joanna look like the victim. Joanna brought Leann into it when she tweeted “I understand why Eddie left you for Leann” in November 2013, wore a Team Rimes shirt in 2013, tweeted to an account everyone suspected of being Leann from 2013 to 2014, and was in constant contact with the same woman Leann spent Thanksgiving tweeting to in 2013.

        Someone posted on their blog that RHOBH are doing casting calls, so Joanna’s lawsuit is a ploy to keep herself relevant and get RHOBH to give her a spot on the next season. Joanna is abusing the system and she should not be rewarded for this. How can Joanna be offended by Brandi talking about the affair with Mohammad when she allowed Bravo and Andy to make it a story line for RHO Miami in 2012?

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        I agree with you 100% @noway.

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        Noway,

        Not sure if you were replying to me or Charlotte.

        If it your comment was to me, my response was to Charlotte posting about LeAnn’s fans stirring the pot on Twitter. So, that is why I made my comment.

        Anytime I get a chance to take a slam that narcissistic, demonic homewrecking philanderer, I will.

      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        Forgot to add, that just because someone dislikes LeAnn Rimes does not make them a Brandi fan. I have zero feelings about Brandi either way, but cannot stand LeAnn. I also do not appreciate the broad notion that all those who can’t stand LeAnn are automatically Brandi fanatics, it’s ridiculous.

  2. It is what it is says:

    Meh people need to learn they can’t just lie and say offensive public things all the time

    • Hautie says:

      We all have freedom of speech.

      But it seems that most folks do not take into account, we don’t have freedom from consequences of your actions or words. So if you are a hateful piece of work with a big mouth… you better get prepared for those consequences.

      Yet, I do not blame this girl of being tired of hearing this vile comment. So if she wants to sue. More power to her.

      But I suspect that Brandi does not have an extra 15K sitting around to lose. Plus the cost of an attorney, to answer this lawsuit.

      • Mixtape says:

        Defamation (re: libel and slander) is a carve-out to freedom of speech–we do not have the right to make intentionally false statements about others.

    • Pinky says:

      Joanna might be mad, but she is most likely going to lose. Brandi stated what she believed was the truth. I doubt she put words in that man’s mouth. Now the affair between him and Krupa will be put on trial and Brandi will hire PIs to prove that the affair happened. Krupa is opening up a can of stinky worms with this and should simply stick to ignoring Brandi. Krupa has not technically been defamed. Bottom line, both women need to STFU.

      BTW: “Odor in the court” is gold!

      • JaneFR says:

        If he denied saying it, if the so called witness denied hearing him say it…. yes, it means that she put words into his mouth.

  3. Aussie girl says:

    The whole thing smells very fishy……

  4. NewWester says:

    I can understand why Joanna would be upset and embrassed about what Brandi stated but isn’t this just bringing more attention to a subject many people have forgotten? Frankly, the more Brandi keeps making rude comments the more she is looking pathetic.

    • Jayna says:

      I think it’s because Brandi brought it up again this new season while on WWHL. It’s probably a lawsuit to stop it permanently, scare her, and get an agreement. It’s a nasty thing to say on TV, one of Brandi’s grossest moments as a human being on TV, and then to repeat again this year, it’s just so gross and ugly. And I’m no fan of Joanne Krupa.

  5. TeresaMaria says:

    Brandi Glanville is vulgar. Vulgar to the limit it gets really repulsive.
    I don’t know who Joanna Krupa is (I am not from US and I only watch RHOBH), but I’m glad someone is showing Brandi that there are consequences for being rude and downright mean.
    Her defence “I have no filter” has always sounded so stupid to me. Maybe it’s cool to be 18, hippie and have no filter, but anything after that age is considered childish and irresponsible in my books.
    P.S. Saying f*** after every third word shows inability to express yourself with other words.

    • Dirty Martini says:

      I completely agree. Mean, rude, offensive, tasteless –whatever adjective — people who defend themselves with “I have no filter” or “That’s just the way I am” irritate the be-jesus out of me. Clue in: there is no acceptable excuse for being vile.

      Im so sorry she got cheated on. She wasn’t the first, she won’t be the last, and it doesn’t give yher a hallpass to ditch the requirements of human decency to others.

      She played her victim card way too many times …it really did expire in 2011 when started punching that ticket for cash. At that point she went from being victim to player.

      No sympathy for her on any level whatsoever.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      Agree! Cosign, @TeresaMarie and @Dirty Martini

  6. Jenni says:

    Brandi is mean, nasty drunk. I can’t stand her anymore. She is pathetic. I hope karma will bite her in her bony ass.

    • BaeOnBoard says:

      Just a stupid, silly, immature woman. Unbelievable that people are given a public platform in which to behave in such a childish and ill-mannered, low-class fashion.

  7. Maya Memsaab says:

    How about trial by combat so they can destroy each other into oblivion for the sake of humanity?

    • Joy says:

      YES!!!!! Put them in the ring and let nature sort it out.

    • bettyrose says:

      THIS!! On behalf of all CA taxpayers, if you want us to pay for your little grudge match, at least make it entertaining.
      edited : oh wait she’s filing in Florida. Okay carry on then.

  8. Talie says:

    The word has always been that Housewives can’t actually sue each other — it’s in their contracts. That’s why they go overboard making slanderous accusations about each other — no consequences.

    • whatevs says:

      Well, I guess that’s not true?

      If someone said that about me to people I knew, I’d laugh it off. If someone said it in a public form the way Brandi did, I’d be pissed too! What, is she 14? 😒

      • Bridget says:

        Krupa’s not a Housewife anymore, since RHOM was cancelled. She’s been trying to get added to Beverly Hills, with no luck.

        Both she and Brandi are awful.

      • Sharon Lea says:

        I’ve heard the Housewives can’t sue each other either, but it may just cover the franchise they are on.

    • Arock says:

      So here’s my question (maybe the legal minds can educate me on this) so how does she prove its not true? If it’s slander, it has to be proven its a false statement with the intention of malice right? So what’s the argument basis if you’re providing it’s a false statement? I would say smell is subjective to an extent- what smells like sushi to one may smell like flowers to another. How do you go into court and make the argument that your biscut isn’t burnt? “See judge, see! I douche!” *scissors legs over the desk”
      …and for less than the cost legal fees I assume…
      Congrats to Joanne, forever now remembered as stank crotch. Gurl let it go.

      • aaa says:

        This is not a subjective matter. Joanna does not have to prove whether or not she smells, she has to prove that she did not have sex with Mohammed while he was in an intact marriage to Yolanda Foster, and also prove that Mohammed did not make the bad odor comment. Mohammed has definitely denied making the odor comment and I think he denied having an affair as well. If Mohammed is willing to say in court what he said on Twitter that will be a big part of Joanna’s case against Brandi.

        Brandi is not the first person who gossiped about a prior relationship between Mohammed and Joanna and I would not be surprised if they did have a relationship, the key here was did it happen while Mohammed and Yolanda were in an “intact” marriage. I assume “intact” means prior to their separation, I remember Yolanda saying that the divorce process with Mohammed took years.

      • Tifygodess24 says:

        @aaa no man is going to just admit to an affair or the fact he said she stunk. So unless he wants to lie in court ( if he actually did all of these things ) I don’t know how Joanna is going to prove it. And I agree with you the affair was gossip long before Brandi.

      • Samtha says:

        Exactly what aaa says–she doesn’t have to prove anything about her personal hygiene. She just has to show that Mohammed never made those comments or slept with her while married.

        That said, if you’re a public figure, defamation cases are very difficult to win. That’s why the lawsuit with Beckham, where he sued InTouch for saying he had an affair, was tossed out. Even though he had proof that he wasn’t even in the same country, legal malice is difficult to prove.

        If Mohammed and Lisa V provide depositions, it becomes a little more dangerous to Brandi.

      • aaa says:

        @Tifygodess24,
        That’s why I stated “IF Mohammed is willing to say in court what he said on Twitter that will be a big part of Joanna’s case against Brandi.” IMO what Mohamed is willing to testify to is a major factor in whether or not Joanna will prevail.

        Men do admit to affairs, of course many start off lying but come clean eventually. Over the years many public figures have admitted affairs for reasons ranging from not perjuring themselves in a legal proceeding to promoting a project to clearing their consciences.

      • puravidacostarica says:

        The “intact” marriage says it all. That’s why Joanna’s lawyers tried to qualify it. Because Yolanda and Mohamed were not divorced, they were married. Whether the marriage was in trouble or “intact” is irrelevant. If Joanna slept with Mohamed before the divorce decree was final and entered by a court, then she committed adultery. I’d like Mohamed and Lisa V. to testify under oath that he never said Joanna’s pussy smelled. Remember, if Joanna demanded a jury trial (and even if she withdraws it and Brandi demands one), Joanna is going to have to get a majority of that jury to believe Joanna, Mohamed and Lisa over Brandi. If she can’t get the requisite number of jury votes, Joanna loses. Juries do not have to believe people (even when they are testifying truthfully) and often are pretty good detectors of when people are lying under oath. So testify away Mohamed and Lisa V.! Let’s see how good you are at convincing a jury that the statement was never said in Brandi’s presence.

      • Arock says:

        @ Aaa, etc- so Joanna’s case depends on if Mohammad said it and when he said it. Would a deposition be enough to make her liable?

      • why? says:

        Here are some of the defenses Brandi can use against Joanna in the lawsuit:

        We Had Faith In What We Said – Faith isn’t just a religious concept. Defamation lawsuits can be won or lost on the question of honest belief. Meaning, if the defendant can show they had every reason to believe their source was accurate and the topic at hand would be of “public interest,” than it’s possible for the defendant to win. In their response, Bauer argued their actions were “reasonable, justified and in good faith.”

        The Statements Made Aren’t Provably False & Some Are Rhetorical Hyperbole – Under U.S. law, in order for a statement to be defamatory, it must be verifiably false. To illustrate: saying some is a jerk is not defamatory, because one can neither prove nor disprove jerkyness. Everybody has a different opinion on what constitutes jerkdom. In this case, Bauer argues that some of the material in question is subjective, punctuated with a healthy dollop of recognizable (and legal) hyperbole, and therefore not defamatory.

        Being A Celebrity Has Its Risks, And Celebrities Know That – Attorneys for the defense reasoned that “if plaintiff was harmed, which the Bauer Defendants deny, plaintiff impliedly assumed the risk of that harm.” In other words, every occupation has its ups-and-downs. One of the downs of fame is that you’re a prime target for media outlets that knowingly make abundant use of rhetorical hyperbole. Therefore, as people with free will, celebrities know they’re going to be photographed and discussed, and in choosing to pursue their career, knowingly assume the risk of being a target of sensationalistic media outlets. Get over it.

        The Plaintiff Is The One Bringing Attention To This — Another way to use harm in a defense argument is to argue that any damage caused was a result of the plaintiff bringing additional attention to the matter. Bauer makes this case, opining that damages “were not proximately caused by the defendants.” The respondents also suggest that Cruise “failed to mitigate” his alleged injuries and that “any damages allegedly suffered by plaintiff were the result, in whole or in part, of plaintiff’s own legal fault, and any recovery by plaintiff should be reduced in proportion to plaintiff’s fault.”

        Doctrines of Unclean Hands, Laches, Waiver and Estoppel – Lawsuits are often like sports matches, complete with offensive and defensive strategies. One of the more popular plays is arguing the doctrine of unclean hands, or laches, waiver and estoppel. They’re grand sounding doctrines, which are intricate, but the basic premise is this: citing the unclean hands doctrine is the same as saying your opponent acted in bad faith in filing the claim and therefore should not be granted an injunction or monetary award for their complaint. In elementary school speak: “Bobby wasn’t playing fair, so he should not be rewarded!”

        Incremental Harm Doctrine – If you’re looking for little-used libel defense arguments, put the incremental harm doctrine on your list. Here’s the gist: under U.S. law, the crux to defamation is material and reputational harm. As such, if a defendant can prove that no additional harm befell the plaintiff as a result of the material in question, then the statement(s) under review cannot be defamatory – or so the logic goes. As explained on LexisNexis:

        Show Me The Money Harm! – To win a slander or libel lawsuit, it’s not enough to say your feelings were hurt. In order to win damages, you must provide evidence of material harm*. In Cruise v. Bauer, the defendant argues the plaintiff “can’t prove he has suffered any compensable damage as a result of the statements.” In other words: Cruise hasn’t lost any money or movie deals because of the Life & Style and In Touch stories, therefore the statements are not defamatory.

        *An exception to this is defamation per se. That is when the material in question is of such a vile nature it’s considered defamatory in it of itself.

    • Jayna says:

      Not true. Adrienne Maloof served Brandi with papers threatening to sue her and Brandi had to hire a lawyer. Brandi said she spent thousands on lawyers to get legal advice over it.

      • Talie says:

        “Not true. Adrienne Maloof served Brandi with papers threatening to sue her and Brandi had to hire a lawyer. Brandi said she spent thousands on lawyers to get legal advice over it.”

        Adrienne never sued (it was a cease letter) and frankly, it was always suspect as to whether Brandi did that for a storyline.

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        That’s just what I was going to post. If nothing else comes out of this, Brandi is going to have to shell out some initial money for lawyers, unless Bravo picks up some of the tab to cosign the drama.

  9. Lucky says:

    I think Brandi should demand Trial by Combat!

  10. neelyo says:

    I pity the jury if evidence is presented.

  11. Brin says:

    Hohanna misses the attention, rookie famewhore move.

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      Yeah you know you are a fame wh*re when you are willing to use your vagina as a way to stay in the press. She needs to just move on and call it a day. I always find people who react so over the top usually have something to be guilty of.

  12. Brittney B says:

    Yeeeeah, if someone said that about me, I’d hope to God it faded from public memory and no one brought it up again. It makes the gossiper look worse when it keeps happening, especially if you maintain your high ground by ignoring it.

    Anyway, Brandi… a “fishy” smell is NORMAL. If anything, a guy complaining about a woman’s “stinky” or “fishy” parts is basically just admitting his own ignorance and inexperience and misogyny. I’m not one of those women who thinks it needs to be perfumed and douched to erase all traces of human scent. If it’s unwashed or infected, that’s one thing… but a woman with a “strong”-smelling biscuit should have no shame at all.

    I imagine this is a mixture of (A) the guy going back on his words & claiming he never drunkenly said this to Brandi, or even blacking out or regretting it so much he did forget, (B) Brandi having NO class (seriously, what did Joanna do to HER?), and (C) Joanna herself being self-conscious about her body and terrified that everyone will believe it because a stupid guy did say something to her once (she’d have to be a little lost, to have an affair with someone like that and to be on Real Housewives in general). The silver lining, on the other hand, could be that Brandi actually stops and thinks about whether she can back up the words she’s saying, and whether they’ll come back to affect HER later down the line. (Because it apparently never bothered her that a real live human woman could be humiliated and fight back…)

    • Jag says:

      Agreed! (And well written, too!)

    • Bridget says:

      Disliking Brandi doesn’t make Joanna Krupa a particularly nice person. She’s a nasty piece of work to herself (put it this way: it’s not surprising that these two found each other) and it speaks volumes about her that she’s so desperate for attention that she keeps bringing this up. Neither of these women has a shred of dignity.

      • jenn12 says:

        Wasn’t she also accused by another HW of being a hooker?

      • Brittney B says:

        I don’t dislike Brandi *or* Joanna, necessarily… both are crude and vapid, but seem harmless enough in the grand scale of things. That’s what I meant; both women are just making things worse, continuously.

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      A musky smell is normal a fishy smell is usually indicative of an infection such as BV. A vagina should not smell like seafood or low tide. Sorry.

    • Marie Alexis says:

      “What did Joanna do to her”?

      Krupa pulled the first punch. Talking about Brandi, she said something along the lines of “No wonder her husband left her!” IMO, Krupa started it; Brandi retaliated.

      • aaa says:

        I don’t condone Joanna Krupa’s “no wonder [Brandi's] husband left her” comment, but IMO Brandi started it by gossiping about her friend Yolanda Foster to a couple of Real Housewives she didn’t know, and then one of those women repeated what Brandi said on national TV, and then Brandi further discussed the matter on national TV which resulted in Joanna tweeting the “no wonder her husband left her” comment.

      • why? says:

        Why does defending Joanna require rewriting history? Both Joanna and Brandi are wrong, but what I don’t understand is why Joanna is being depicted as the victim when the articles from 2013 state that Brandi’s comment about Joanna smelling came AFTER Joanna attacked Brandi’s marriage and Joanna, not Brandi is named as the aggressor. What makes Joanna’s comment about Brandi’s marriage even worse is that during that time the blogs were writing that Joanna’s own husband wouldn’t even sleep with her. Brandi wasn’t gossiping. Andy asked Brandi and the other guest he had on the show that night about Joanna’s affair with Mohammad. Why does defending Joanna require a complete rewrite of history?

        Joanna claims that bullying hurts, but here are se several documented instances of Joanna bullying Brandi, which Brandi can bring to the courts attention by arguing that Joanna has unclean hands. It’s not right when celebrities like Joanna abuse the court systems like this.

  13. kpoodle says:

    For it to actually be considered slander/libel, don’t you have to be able to prove what’s being said about you is false? How is she going to prove that???

    • Jag says:

      I was wondering if she’s going to have to go to a doctor or something as an impartial person to check to see if she smells to that extent? I hope she thinks that it’s all worth it.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I think she just has to prove that Muhammad didn’t actually say that. He claims he never did.

      • Bridget says:

        I think it needs to be proved that Brandi knew what she was saying was false and then Krupa has to show damages.

      • Rachel says:

        I agree with GNAT. It seems her claim is twofold. 1) That she had an affair with this guy and 2) the odor issue. With regards to the odor issue, Brandi said the *guy* said she smelled. So all Joanna has to do is get him to testify that they never had sex while he was married and that he never made any comments to Brandi regarding any hygienic issues. As far as damages go, the article mentions IIED. Therefore, Krupa doesn’t have to show that she suffered any actual monetary loss with an IIED claim. And honestly, I don’t think it would be hard to argue some damage to her “brand” anyway.

      • claire says:

        Other people have said she had the affair with him, so Brandi will at least have her own group of witnesses to call.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Oh, Bridget, you might be right.

      • Samtha says:

        Bridget is right–they have to prove actual malice (and legal malice is different than the regular definition of malice). Even if what Brandi said is false, it doesn’t mean she can be sued for saying it, as long a she had a reasonable expectation to believe it was true.

        That’s why I believe the affair part of the lawsuit will be tossed. If the rumors about her and Mohammed didn’t start with Brandi, if it’s something that has been speculated on by others for a while, Brandi can use that as a defense.

        Does anyone know if Florida has anti-SLAPP legislation?

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        Something just occurred to me. If Muhammad actually thought the biscuit was stank, then why would he proceed to have sex with her? Why go ahead and do it, then complain about it later?

  14. savu says:

    I don’t even have an opinion on what Brandi said about this person, no idea who she even is. But GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.

    Winning libel suits in the US is extremely difficult. It’s even more difficult if you are a person in the public eye, to protect people writing and criticizing public officials without having to fear legal retaliation (like the tarred and feathered kind of stuff). Krupa would have to prove ALL of the following:
    A) Information was published
    B) Defendant was identified in publication
    C) Must be false and proven false
    D) Defamation, or it actually hurt the defendant
    E) Actual malice, or knowing it was false and doing it anyway.

    She’ll have to get Hadid to swear they never had sex, and prove it true. Then she’d have to get him to say he didn’t lie to Glanville about it and say what she claims he did. If he did say anything to that effect, HE is probably the one legally responsible.

    Glanville can use as a defense:
    A) The information is true
    B) It’s opinion
    C) “Libel proof”, or it couldn’t hurt Krupa’s reputation because it’s already low, or gossip helps her. I suspect this is the defense they’d go with.

    And there’s your legal lesson of the day!

  15. Jess says:

    I swear I saw Brandi apologize on twitter before she filed this ridiculous lawsuit, either way this is just stupid. Joanna started this drama and she needs to let it go, yes Brandi took it waaaaay too far and never should’ve said something so personal and disgusting, but Joanna played a huge part in this and kept it going by wearing that “team Rimes” shirt.

    • jenn12 says:

      I don’t know if she did or not, and while I like Brandi for the most part, she does some seriously stupid things. With that said, these women are ADULTS- my middle school aged child doesn’t act this dramatic. Brandi should be showcasing what a great friend she is, how much she adores her sons, her sharp business sense (she does have one) and not engaging in this endless, Bravo manufactured claptrap. It’s old and dull.

    • Nan says:

      Jess she did, so JK can’t say she didn’t publicly apologized when she did, last I knew twitter is public, plenty of people saw it and I bet screen capped it and JK saw it.

    • Cruxcurio says:

      Because lucrative..

      The higher Brandi’s profile becomes, the more of a target she becomes for the litigious. Therefore she needs to be more ‘filtered’ and hang the controversy contests.

      It’s pretty defamatory stuff but, it started from somewhere. (Krupa carrying a big stick, stirring the pot, and crying when it back fires).
      If Krupa had just been quietly dignified, it would’ve blown over. ( Perhaps easier said than done).

      I agree with ‘jenn12′: Brandi has so much more to her and going for her, that we don’t see enough of, that she should capitalize on.
      She doesn’t need to ‘sell her soul’ to Bravo Tv’s shenanigans to hustle a buck. (I personally, believe Andy Cohen has a secret abhorrence for women).

    • fran says:

      Hi Jess you know Brandi didn’t apologize . I think you are too much of a Brandi fan . Joanna models bathing suits , this is not good for her . I don’t blame her for suing. I am not a fan of either gal . However Brandi has a vile mouth and I hope this will teach her to keep it shut , or at least try to think before she speaks. By the way Brandi started this not Joanna its been proven.

  16. The Original Mia says:

    If it wasn’t for her lawsuit, I wouldn’t know she had a stanky coochie. Still don’t know who she is. TBH, I don’t care what the state of her vagina is. She’s wasting the court’s time on something that’s basically a school yard insult. Grow up. Get a thicker skin. If it doesn’t stink, why worry what some other chick is saying? Is the rumor preventing her from working? Doubt it. She doesn’t. She appears on a reality show. Dates don’t want to visit her lady parts? How do you prove that? So ridiculous.

    • snowflake says:

      it’s just a move to get Brandi to shut up. I would have done the same thing. doesn’t matter, imo, who started it, but to say someone’s cooch stinks is beyond low. and she keeps repeating it too.

      • aaa says:

        Exactly! The original comment was made in 2013, it created a media stir and then died down. A year later Brandi joked about Joanna’s “odor situation” and “bad sushi” and the media ran with the story the second time around as well.

      • why? says:

        Joanna is not the victim and it’s sad how this entire story is being rewritten to make Joanna look like the victim when she has “unclean hands”. It does matter who started it. Saying that it doesn’t matter isn’t going to make it true. Joanna can’t ask the court to take action against Brandi when she was the aggressor and was named by 2 blogs in 2013 as the aggressor in her feud with Brandi. Joanna can’t scream that bullying hurts when there are numerous documented instances of her bullying Brandi. Team Rimes shirt. Mocking Brandi with the DJ from Hard Rock Cafe. Tweeting to an account everyone suspects is Brandi. Giving back to back interviews attacking Brandi. Even the interviews that Joanna’s did this week with TMZ Live, E, and People magazine can be used against Joanna.

        What was low was Joanna tweeting that she knew why Eddie left Brandi when Joanna was having problems with her husband(the blogs were reporting that he wouldn’t even sleep with Joanna).

      • The Original Mia says:

        You can’t be serious. You’d go to court because someone said your crotch stank. All women have an odor. Hot days, at the gym. It’s natural. Only someone vain and on a reality show would elevate something that is literally potty humor to this level.

      • snowflake says:

        well, brandi won’t shut up about it, so what else is she supposed to do? beat her a*s?

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        ROLF @snowflake! hahahaha! beat her a*s!!!

  17. Eazypeazy says:

    Joanna could probably lose some potential “clients” over this and it needs to be on the record that she does not have a smelly vag

  18. aenflex says:

    How unbelievably stupid.

  19. maeliz says:

    I’ve never seen any of the shows but now I know who Joanna is because of her making a big deal of this. This proves people sue over the dumbest things

  20. JenniferJustice says:

    Still hoping Glanville loses her arse in court and all her Bravo pay gets garnished. She is nothing more than an attention-seeking, trashy, vulgar, ignorant joke. I’m looking forward to the fall-out.

    • Bridget says:

      Krupa’s only suing for 15K so I dont think any shirts will be lost (and in fact if it goes to a jury trial both parties will pay more in lawyers fees). Brandi will eventually fade away on her own, though the more people click and comment on her posts the longer it’ll take.

  21. Grace says:

    I would ask for more than $15k if I was to put my biscuit on trial. I wouldn’t think its worth it if I couldnt ask for at least $50k

  22. Cinderella says:

    Both sides really need to stop with this whole lady-part ickiness. Romain must be beside himself with embarrassment. He didn’t like talking about their sex life on camera. I can’t imagine how he’s dealing with this.

  23. Cici says:

    Brandi was completely out of line with what she said about Joanna but I think Joanna is making a huge mistake with this lawsuit. Even if she does get her victory, what then? Her name is forever synonymous with a stinky cooch. Her reputation is not the best either, I think it could be true that she slept with Mohammed. There have been many rumors to that effect. Too many for me to not think there could be some truth to it. I think if I was her, I’d leave this alone. Besides, no one hurts Brandi’s image more than she does herself.

  24. Tarsha says:

    This is so petty. Clearly Joanna can’t be feeling embarrassed by it, since she keeps dragging it up, and now wants to drag it into the courtroom.

    All that said, I wish it would go ahead and Brandi has to pay up. Because at this point, I think hitting her in the hip pocket may be the ONLY way she will change and stop and think about what she is saying and the ramifications of it. Make it 50-100 thousand though. She is all about Oh I need to provide for my boys, I think if she is almost forced into poverty she will start putting her boys first, for ONCE, and try to be a mature adult, for their sake. She has got to be taught a lesson, and it has to be something that will really, really affect her. Losing a lot of money, may just finally make her ditch the petty, mean-spirited, vicious and thoughtless persona she has.

    • Christin says:

      Banning the losing party from any cosmetic procedures for a year would likely be a huge attention getter. Not going to happen, but it’s funny to imagine.

    • why? says:

      The major problem is that Joanna is the aggressor. Brandi can argue that Joanna has unclean hands because her comment about Joanna came AFTER Joanna attacked her marriage. Both E News and another site name Joanna, not Brandi, as the aggressor. Joanna is abusing the system and that isn’t right.

  25. kri says:

    I am just embarrassed on behaf of everyone. Who would ever, EVER take something like this into a court of law. Oh, wait-two dumb famewhores. I would say, just sweep it under the rug, but apparently, the rug needs a good wash, so..

  26. Anon says:

    Lets be fair here. Its not about the money at all but it is about bullying and this is indeed bullying on any level. That is the whole point of the lawsuit. i also agree with the jury concept. Crap like this should never be allowed regardless of the women pr person involved

  27. Diana says:

    People seriously need to be educated about The Barbara Streisand effect. Like, she’s always going to be that lady with the gross biscuit who sued someone — at least now, to me. Who wants to sleep with that? So unattractive. She’s just given Brandi’s words more weight and legitimacy by suing.

  28. yep says:

    Back in the day, jr.high, I let a boy feel my boobies. He didnt know the exact placement though, and was groping my lower ribcage. Which btw, stuck out horribly as I was very thin. Next day he told everyone I had no nipples.
    Hmmm. Do I wear a tube top and “accidentally” expose my boobs for proof? Or do I let this die down?
    I didnt get the tube top out.
    People talk shit all the time. It shows good character when you rise above that nonsense and dont give it your time.

  29. anne_000 says:

    Regarding the recent WWHL episode (the one with Brandi One-On-One with Andy), she said those cards with that subject were given to her by the show. So do with that as you will. Same with the fact that Brandi had already apologized to Krupa.

    Regarding Krupa trying to get $15k for the ‘honor’ of her vagina… I’d think she’d have to prove that the humor involving an alleged smelly vagina cost her $15k worth of financial distress.

    Did she get turned down by fashion designers because they were scared she’s stink up their clothes and she’d be smelly when strutting down a catwalk?

    Did she get turned down by a Las Vegas hotel as a pool and club hostess because they were afraid she’d walk around in a smelly bikini?

    Did she get turned down by bicycle manufacturer to be a spokeswoman because they thought their customers wouldn’t be able to get the image of a smelly bicycle seat out of their mind?

    Krupa is a public figure. I’d think that means she’s fair game for insults and jokes or else every celebrity would be suing bloggers, commenters, tabloids, youtube reviewers, etc. every day.

    • anne_000 says:

      Regarding that update…. Oh that’s right. she’s in Floriduh… Not saying everybody in Floriduh is stupid, but a ‘my cootchie doesn’t smell’ lawsuit fits the stereotype…

      • snowflake says:

        what stereotype is that? florida chick here. we’re known for snowbirds and springbreakers, not frivolous lawsuits.

      • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

        @snowflake-
        And terrible legal messes* sorry to say: the Trayvon Martin case, the Caylee Anthony case, just off the top of my head.

        * Although your state is by no means alone in this. And at least you have a lot of things going for your state, like its beautiful environment.

  30. MourningTheDeathOfMusic says:

    In the immortal words of Cleveland Brown, “Oh, that’s nasty…”

  31. Mrs. Wellen-Mellon says:

    Okay, the plaintiff’s cross-examination in court. In front of a jury.

  32. Bread and Circuses says:

    “ODOR IN THE COURT!!”

    Okay, that was juvenile but very, very funny. I am twelve too, apparently. :D

  33. why? says:

    “Krupa warned that if Brandi didn’t apologize, she would file suit. ”

    There goes Joanna’s case because Brandi apologized on twitter on December 21, 2014 at 10:51 am (Brandi Glanville: “@joannakrupa I’m SORRY I’m sure you smell as beautiful as you look! I won’t joke about it again”).

    This lawsuit is just a desperate attempt by Joanna to keep herself relevant since there are rumors that the RHW of Miami may be cancelled. It’s almost like Joanna is campaigning for a spot on RHOBH. Her attacks on Brandi usually occur when Leann and her fans are tweeting to Andy to fire Brandi.

    Joanna is out of line with this lawsuit for many reasons.

    Brandi didn’t bring up Joanna’s affair with Mohammad, Andy did.

    Joanna has unclean hands.

    Brandi’s response to Joanna came after Joanna tweeted “I know why Eddie left you for Leann”, which according to E News and another site she deleted. Both of those sites name Joanna, not Brandi, as the aggressor. Stating that Brandi only said that Joanna smelled bad AFTER Joanna attacked Brandi’s marriage.

    Joanna wore a “Team Rimes” shirt 2-3 days after the incident occurred. If she was hurt by what Brandi said, why would she then provoke Brandi by attacking her marriage? Joanna has been tweeting with an account everyone suspected was Leann.

    Joanna was instrumental in having the Hard Rock Cafe fire Brandi because the night of the event, she and the DJ from Hard Rock Cafe mocked Brandi.

    Joanna gave back to back interviews about Brandi. Her feud with Brandi would die down and then Joanna would give another interview attacking Brandi. Brandi can argue that Joanna was the one bringing attention to the matter at hand because she just wouldn’t and won’t shut up.

    Joanna just won’t shut up. She gave interviews to TMZ Live, E, and People magazine this week. As a defense Brandi and her lawyer can argue that it’s Joanna(the plantiff) who is bringing attention to it. Brandi can also argue that Joanna is a celebrity and as a celebrity she knew the risks, just like when Joanna tweeted that she knew why Eddie left Brandi or Joanna and the DJ from Hard Rock Cafe mocked Brandi.

    Brandi can also demand that Joanna “show her the harm”. Has Joanna lost movie deals or jobs because of what Brandi said?

  34. why? says:

    “On Jan. 6, Krupa’s attorney Raymond Rafool wrote a letter to Glanville stating his client’s intent to sue for libel, slander and defamation and asked for an apology and a retraction of these comments. Per the suit filed this week, Glanville has yet to apologize to Krupa or retract her statements.”

    Joanna is abusing the court system to keep herself relevant and that’s not right. If Brandi has yet to apologize to Krupa or retract her statements, how does Joanna’s attorney explain this tweet made in December 2014?

    Brandi Glanville: @joannakrupa I’m SORRY I’m sure you smell as beautiful as you look! I won’t joke about it again

  35. why? says:

    After filing her suit against Glanville, the Real Housewives of Miami star told E! News exclusively, “Bullying hurts!”

    This is how you know that this lawsuit is nothing more than a publicity stunt for Joanna to keep herself relevant. She says that bullying hurts, yet there are numerous instances of Joanna bullying Brandi. That is considered unclean hands.

    1. E News: Joanna Krupa Disses Brandi Glanville, Wears “Team Rimes” T-Shirt (Fri., Nov. 15, 2013 3:06 PM PST)

    The Real Housewives of Miami star sported a “Team Rimes” tank top while stepping out to walk her pal’s dog on Thursday, Nov. 14 in Miami. This fashion statement is, of course, an apparent diss to her fellow housewife, whose ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian’s wife, LeAnn Rimes.

    The feud between Krupa and Glanville began on Monday, Nov. 11 when the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star claimed on Watch What Happens Live that Krupa had an affair with costar Yolanda Foster’s ex-husband, Mohamed Hadid.

    Krupa retaliated on Twitter, tweeting “no wonder her husband left her.” The tweet has since been deleted.

    2. Another source that documents Joanna as the aggressor:

    Brandi just so happened to be on Watch What Happens Live right after that reunion show aired on Bravo. She confirmed the rumor to Andy Cohen, saying that Mohamed told her he had sex with Joanna. (Remember, Brandi takes exception to adultery, because of her own mess with her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and Leann Rimes.)

    Cut to later, during the WWH after show, which airs live on the Internet, Andy receives some breaking news from a producer via his earpiece. Joanna tweeted the following about Brandi:

    No wonder her husband left her.

    (The tweet has since been deleted.)

    After Andy repeated the tweet to Brandi, she immediately revealed that Mohamed told her that Joanna’s “pussy smelled.” (The implication was that said smell was “bad.”) She claimed that Lisa Vanderpump (from Beverly Hills) was a witness to the convo.

    3. Another source documenting Joanna bullying Brandi:

    Joanna Krupa & Radio DJ Taunt Brandi Glanville At Her Canceled Tampa Appearance(Posted on Dec 17, 2013 @ 10:52AM)

    In a bizarre twist, Krupa and her fellow Real Housewives of Miami star Karent Sierra attended the party at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino instead — and had a not-so-nice message for Eddie Cibrian’s ex-wife.

    Posing for a photo at the party with radio DJ Orlando Davis, they flipped the bird at the camera.

    “Taking @joannakrupa and @karentsierra for a swim,” the WILD 94.1 radio host Davis — who is black — captioned the middle-finger shot. “Beauties who know I can swim! @BrandiGlanville @SHRTampa #RHOBH.”

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      Krupa only began bullying Brandi once Brandi said the woman’s lady bits area smelled and that she had an affair. Brandi brought it on herself this time.

      • why? says:

        That’s not true. At least 2 blogs identify Joanna, not Brandi, as the aggressor. Or are you choosing to ignore that because it depicts Joanna in a bad light? Brandi didn’t make the statement about Joanna smelling until Joanna tweeted that she knew why Eddie had left Brandi. Why would Joanna even comment on someone’s marriage when at the time blogs were talking about how her own husband wouldn’t even sleep with her. Joanna brought this on herself and now that she can’t handle it, she wants to abuse the court system to get her way. Joanna can’t even blame Brandi for commenting on her affair with Mohamid because she allowed Bravo and RHO Miami to use it as a storyline when they had Joe Francis on one of their episodes. Joanna did interviews with TMZ, People, and E whining about how she is the victim when there are documented evidenced of her bullying Brandi.

        1. Krupa retaliated on Twitter, tweeting “no wonder her husband left her.” The tweet has since been deleted.

        2. Cut to later, during the WWH after show, which airs live on the Internet, Andy receives some breaking news from a producer via his earpiece. Joanna tweeted the following about Brandi:

        No wonder her husband left her.

        (The tweet has since been deleted.)

        After Andy repeated the tweet to Brandi, she immediately revealed that Mohamed told her that Joanna’s “pussy smelled.” (The implication was that said smell was “bad.”) She claimed that Lisa Vanderpump (from Beverly Hills) was a witness to the convo.

  36. OrangeBlohan says:

    There is just something fishy about this lawsuit. It’s just stupid.

  37. why? says:

    Joanna’s lawsuit is full of holes. The rumor about her having an affair with Mohamid started way before Brandi. Joe Francis gave an interview to Rumor Fix in 2012, detailing how he came to know Joanna. According to Joe, he met Joanna through Mohamid. He details how Mohamid first met Joanna, she was walking down the street, Mohamid stopped her and gave her his number. Mohamid dated Joanna for a month, until Yolanda caught him in bed with Joanna and that is when Mohamid sent Joanna Joe’s way. Joe also said that he dated both Joanna and her sister and that he put Joanna in one of his tv ads. As a defense in the lawsuit, couldn’t Brandi’s attorney ask Joanna how she met Mohamid and Joe Francis?

    The blogs from 2012 say that Joe brought up Joanna’s affair with Mohamid on an episode of RHO Miami(Bravo bleeped out Mohamid’s last name), it was a Lingerie Party for a charity event. Why is Joanna suing Brandi for talking about the affair in 2013 on WWHL when she allowed Andy and Bravo to make it a storyline in 2012? During the episode the blogs say that Joe states that he met Joanna through a mutual friend(he says Mohamid’s name but Bravo bleeped out Mohamid’s name). Joanna’s sister confirms Joe part of Joe’s story when she admitted that she slept with Joe Francis.

  38. weirswalker says:

    They probably both need to douche on a more regular basis…

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      Douching disrupts your pH in the lady area which can cause BV (bacterial vaginosis). You’d only be doing worse to yourself if you douche.

  39. Jenn K says:

    This is hilarious. Guess Im about to be sued by half the skanks in my city i this is what we sue for now!

    PS I love Brandi !!

  40. Dommy Dearest says:

    It’s called bacteria vaginosis and it’s something far too many women suffer from. It’s caused by a change in the pH of a woman’s lady parts. Completely not an STD or anything of the sort and can occur with little to no reason from douching, having sex, using tampons, or even taking a bath with the bath salts. Brandi attempting to shame Joanna with it is just disgusting. I had a small bit of like for her because of how He-Man exploits her sons but now I’m just disgusted. She’s an awful, vile human being.

    • laura.e says:

      Agreed! Very rude. Anyone suffering it needs to take Fem-dophilus (if you’re in the USA) or Blackmores Bio Balance for women (if you’re in Australia). It has strains of good bacteria that help you get back on track. I bet if you asked Eddie he would say that Brandi’s smelt at one point or another!

  41. Alina says:

    I’m just curious. In such a civil case, would the burden of proof fall on Krupa or Brandy? Would Krupa have to show the jury her vagina doesn’t smell? Would the jury be asked to sniff the vagina in order to disprove brandy s allegation?

  42. Kiyoshigirl says:

    Sometimes I hate not being able to post until long after everyone else. Don’t any of you people work :} Ms. Krupa is filing for damages because Glanville’s slanderous statements have a direct impact on Krupa’s ability to perform business. If you were a designer would you want your swimsuit and lingerie samples worn on shoots by someone with a smelly coochie? No, you would not. Case closed.

    • SmellyCat says:

      Ms Krupa isn’t exactly Christy Brinkley. I don’t think designers are falling all over themselves to hire her regardless of the stank cooch comment. Joe Francis said worse about her, why isn’t she suing him? Things that make you go hmmmmm.
