"I guess you have to take the good with the bad, and right now, it's a little bad."
Brandi Glanville delivered a hefty dose of real talk on the latest episode of her podcast Brandi Glanville: Unfiltered—and this time she was joined by her co-star Carlton Gebbia. The pair had a revealing conversation about everything from "that kiss" to Brandi's fights with Joyce Giraud.
But she put a positive spin on all the negativity. "Honestly, this year, if Carlton and I hadn't kissed, I hadn't said this stupid joke, and Lisa and I didn't get in a fight, we wouldn't have a show," she bluntly states at the start of the podcast. "I'm just being honest, and it sucks, but I tend to be volatile, and I love hard at the end of the day."
As for their infamous smooch in the pool, Carlton and Brandi laughed it off, with Carlton downplaying the whole scenario. "Like I said before on one of my blogs, we didn't elope, we didn't get married, we didn't have children!" she says. "Brandi and I were having a barbeque at my house, and we were in the Jacuzzi, and we were drinking...we definitely connected. And yeah, we shared a kiss. And it literally was that. My husband was barbequing, and David looked over, like, 'Oh God!' and smiled. And that was it."
Brandi and Carlton go on to talk more RHOBH gossip about the girls—specifically the Palm Springs trip they're still both trying to come to terms with. And Carlton brings up a revealing point about her filter-free friend. Brandi's sons, Mason and Jake, are never filmed for the show, and she thinks that only stokes the perception that she's out of control.
"It's hard," says Brandi. "[The viewers] see the drunk Brandi saying stupid shit...but I want them to see what you see. We've gone out to dinner with the kids—which, it's so adorable—I have other sides to me just as you do."
"I definitely think you're at disadvantage," admits Carlton. "I think other people on this Housewives team have all shown their relationships with their children. You haven't, so you are at a disadvantage. But I have seen it firsthand. I know what an amazing mum you are."
What do you think about Brandi and Carlton's frank conversation? Tell us in the comments.
Brandi is a beautiful girl, but her mouth make her ugly is embarrassing, Carlton is not cute look at the picture but she thinks she is all that, if you want respect you have to give respect, is not free.
Brandy you need help for your own good, you need to be the best for your children if not you are providing scenes with continuos lack of self control that a Grown Woman should demonstrate. You are not the first or the last woman on earth that a husband will cheat on, so cheer up count your blessings & move on!
Bandi, we ALL go through difficult times. Your friends who were tying to keep you from being drunk on camera are the ones who care for you.
Brandi has had years of grieving since her husband left her. Now it's time to think about her children first and get back to being a Mother with a real job and taking responsibility for her actions. Instead of getting drunk and stoned at parties stumbling so bad that she unable to walk on her own without assistance. Is she not afraid to have her boys taken away from her?
Brandi just seems to b a shyt starting pretentious mean girl. If you feel like you want to b seen differently than that then don't give them arsenal for there amo and put the bottle down shut your mouth put y our clothes on and b a role model your poor kids who you only mention when defending yourself. Don't do it at all and maybe they would show that side but I doubt your that interesting
Why can't you behave that way all the time you can have fun with people not at the expense of others .you don't need to drink that much you can still have a few glasses .it is so obvious that you have gotten to big for your boots everybody brings something to the show . Just because somebody doesn't agree with you it doesn't mean they hate you .Your not a teenager your 41 ,a mother it time to put on your big girls pants and grow up
That theory doesn't sit with me I say bullsh*t... I think Kyle is a total b*tch and we see her with her girls all the time...
Brandi, let's remind you that there was the RHOBH before you came on board. There would be a show without you...a much more watchable show.
Obviously this past year has been hard on Brandi. I see her battling a relationship that went bad as well as a hurtful relationship with her dad, whom she loves dearly. I have no doubt she is a great mum, however, she alone has the power to put a lid on her drinking. It's a powerful subject to watch every week. You can tell it hurts Kim who is not my favorite, but kudos to her for getting her drinking under control. Do you bloggers not remember how obnoxious Kim was when she was always looped? She was every bit as bad as Brandi. You guys sure forget easily. Don't you remember Kyle screaming at Kim telling her she was an alcoholic when they were in the limo? Breath taking scenes. But I will say to Brandi, you are a beautiful young lady, you are getting back on your feet after your slime ball of a husband cheated with the home wrecker Rhimes, tearing your heart out as well as your kids. Sooo put a lid on the bottle! With your ex being a slime ball he could use this show against you in court. Haven't you thought of that? I also think Carlton is a hoot, she's funny and tells it like it is. Joyce on the other hand is also beautiful and knows it. I wish she would stop flipping her hair. She tries hard to convince us that she is without fault, but she gossips about the others as bad as Kyle does. Kyle is a good one for stirring up the pot, but these women get paid for it. If they weren't causing all the hassles they would be boring. That's why we watch these shows. Lisa has changed this season and not for the best.i think the show has gone to her head and she thinks she's all that. She is a pretty woman with a great figure and lots of money and she works hard. I love Yolanda, she is down to earth, beautiful with lots of money too. She loves her family as I'm sure they all do. Yolanda has beautiful lips. Her husband is a delight. Maurice I think is a very productive broker, but he too thinks he's all that. I'm sorry his family has to suffer the allegations this year, but I've been married 45 years and I've learned over the years that where there's smoke there is usually fire. I'm in no way saying he has cheated, but he has done something that has sparked the rumors, they don't start out of nowhere. Maybe it was just flirting, I don't know but neither do I care. I do wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Brandi thinks too much of herself by implying that there would be no show if she didn 't kiss Carlton, fight with Lisa and made a so called joke about black people. Whatever relationship she has with her children, doesn't excuse her actions or put her at a disadvantage. Good try Carlton!
Get rid of Brandi- she's a psycho and so is her friend Carlton. It's amazing that these crazies have so much money and act this way.
Obviously neither of you wrote this blog. No blaming others? No snarky, mean remarks? Wow! Talk about damage control.....too late. So quick to blog before. Yo wasn't too sick to be mean and disgusting at dinner and haven't from you two this week. Whatever, I hope others don't fall for this line of bs, because that's what the mean team dishes out.
@piperbeau I believe both Kim and Kyle dumb down the show. Sorry haters Brandi and Carlton make the show!
@Down_home Wow, I agree with everything and well said.. except for Carlton.. she's an idiot
@Down_home I still think Kim is obnoxious.....
@NYCrealrealhousewife I agree! Brandi wasn't a housewive to begin with; she got replaced by someone who makes a real living. Reading her book as it is lies evidence as to why she has no business putting her kids on display. A woman should conduct herself with higher grace when cheated on- that's how you earn public respect. She leaches off ppl with real jobs/purpose, leeches off them then trashes them. She's everything Latinas stereotype about white girls; working on her back and playing the American spread eagle!
@sugar1961@dstage@piperbeauI think Brandi comes across as the tough girl but is really very naive. I also think Carleton only backs her up because she has the hots for Brandi! Carleton is just weird & don't think she's real at all, she makes mountains out of molehills just for the sake of drama. Notice she doesn't start any crap with the stronger women like Lisa & Yolanda???? please, she needs to go.
