The newest cast member of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills sure knows how to stir up controversy, before she even appears on the TV show.
Dana Wilkey, who is Taylor Armstrong’s friend, joins the cast this season — when asked what she’ll bring to the show, she quickly snapped, “Hopefully some intelligence.”
After that, some might say Dana wasn’t using her intelligence when she used a gay slur.
Here’s what happened:
While Dana was waiting for her car after Thursday’s birthday celebration for Camille, Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof and Kim Richards, she was talking her Lamborghini.
Our cameraman told her he thought she was joking about the $200,000 until it rolled up.
Her response: “Why would I lie that’s so gay.”
Gay organizations like GLSEN, The Gay & Lesbian Straight Education Alliance, say using gay to mean dumb or stupid is offensive and they even started a campaign to bring about awarness called “Think before you speak.”
