Brandi Glanville

Brandi is thankful that for at least one week, the gals could put their differences aside for fashion -- and charity.

My thoughts and prayers are with Taylor and her daughter.

It was great to spend some time with Kyle and actually be getting along! A lot of people are wondering if I brought up the idea of the party mainly to get a reaction out of Kyle and the answer is -- yes! I know how uptight these ladies can be, but I was pleasantly surprised by her reaction. In any event, she seems to have her man sa-tis-fied (wink wink!).

All the ladies looked amazing at Adrienne's fashion show, so that was a lot of fun to watch (I loved Camille's coat!). Seriously, I bet Adrienne even showers in those sky-high heels. Haha. The clothes in the fashion show were to die for and watching it made me really miss the excitement of runway shows (Ah, the good ole days). It was nice to see that everyone could put their drama aside for the evening and come together for a good cause.

Brandi, you were absolutely CORRECT to ask Taylor to leave. The party was going fine until she drank too much, started pouting in a corner, got drunk, then yelled "OUTSIDE" to Camille (like a truckdriver) . She was preparing for a show down with Camille in the limo with Kyle and asked Kyle to watch her back. It was premeditated, completely rude to ruin your party. Ask the Witch Bully Kyle to be your back up......obviously she was preparing to make a scene. Many of us have had trauma in our backgrounds but we don't be mean to others to the extent she does. I believe her friends should have quickly escorted her out of the party - even a bar or restaraunt would have asked her to leave. You were right to ask her to leave, however, since there is so much tension, perhaps you should have asked Adrienne, the sensible one if she thought it best to get Taylor home. Taylor ridiculed Kim Richards Season 1 finale about her substance abuse problems, but its obvious Taylor has them too. When she was pretending while drunk that she would fall off the balcony - looking for attention- this was also very dangerous to herself and the homeowner so another reason she should have been escorted from the party. Had she not come, your party would have been a great success and even Kyles immature spotlighting of your dress would have been laughed off as a sophomoric prank. I feel bad Taylor had domestic abuse, I get it but she also goes out and picks fights, has a problem with alcohol and there are more sensible ways to get out of a situation without bringing everyone else down around you also. I don't understand why she is on the show. I hope she doesn't return next season. Kyle is on the show since she had the contacts so we have to fast forward through her scenes to enjoy the fun and glamourous moments of life in BH that we see through Lisa, Adrienne, Camille and now you. I also like Faye Resnick and Linda Thompson. They aren't mean and they glamourous and smart. So hang in there, Camille had a hard time last season, it's your turn I guess but we all love you in New England and think the childishness of hiding your crutches, the bad hostess letting this picking on you get out of hand, and Kyle's obvious jealousy will end. Kyle ususally apologizes eventually for beating up on people including her vulnerable sister in season 1 which is unforgivable. Kim is troubled due to her family early family life and Kyle preys on her. Sibling rivalry where Kyle is jealous and knows she can manipulate the vulnerable Kim. It's unbelieveable to me how trashy Kyle puts down Lisa who can run circles around her.

Brandi, I am a very conservative chick from the South but I faithfully watch the RHOBH. I watch the behavior of most of the girls and think to myself, " Wow, what two faced backstabbing women"! Namely Kyle , Kim, Lisa and Dana come to mind. You come across as sweet, genuine , strong and unique so please don't change. I hope you can remain on the show and make a difference in the women's lives because you have a lot to offer them and the viewers whether they realize it or not. So go Team Brandi!!

Brandi don't bother trying to fit in with the shallow Kyle, Kim, Taylor and AWFUL Dana. You are absolutely great on the show and everyone i talk to about RHOBH loves you! Can't wait to see more of you!

You absolutely did the right thing asking Taylor to leave. She was completely crazed and it wasn't even your house. You ended the drama fast. It's unfortunate that Kyle has to behave so beastly!

Brandi, I don't quite know what it is about you but I'm rooting for you girl. These women are giving you hell left and right but you're a trooper and I like it. You've owned all your bad behavior and even taken on other's bad behavior just to extend the olive branch. I think you're a sweet lady and if everyone would stop judging you and trying to trash you, they may see what we the viewers are seeing. Although some people may not agree, I think you were trying to diffuse the tension since Taylor was obviously out of control by asking her to leave and I feel that was the right thing to do. if those ladies had done the same to you, they would have thrown a party to celebrate treating your poorly.

You did exactly what 99.99% of us would do in such a pathetic situation. I swear I thought Kyle & Taylor morphed into a pair of hysterical screaming spider monkeys about to fling their poo.

Hi Brandi,

Love that you are on the show! Hope to see more of you. BRAVO please keep Brandi on, Taylor or the the other housewives shouldnt be asked just ask your viewers.

Brandi, run, don't walk away from these vipers. Lisa is nice and a loyal friend so you may want to cultivate a relationship with her, Adrienne (who I used to adore) has been showing a not so nice side lately but she seems to like you for the most part, and Camille is a class act if she'll let you into her circle. Dump Dana who is nothing but a wanna be who will jump in line behind whoever she thinks is "popular" at the moment (she reminds me of sooooooo many girls I knew and coundn't stand in HS), and we won't even bother with Kyle, Kim, or Taylor because those three are beyond mean, petty, back stabbing, and vindictive. Although I think Kyle might come in handy buffing your wood floors at your next party when she does her inevitiable splits for all to see and envy. Next time she's down on the floor like that, just grab her hand and start sliding her around and I bet your wood floors end up with a glossy dust free sheen courtesy of Victoria's Secret Cotton Briefs for Desperate Middle Aged Women line.

Brandi- I would have asked Taylor to leave too!!! Good Job. Please sit back and enjoy the fact that all these women are making asses out of themselves (Kyle and Taylor) and have treated you horribly. I hope you know they are only making themselves look bad- not YOU. By the way, if I had your body I probably wouldn't wear clothes let alone a bra. I find it hard to believe Kyle lives in Beverly Hills and acts like shes never seen boobs before. Of course she acts like BJ and cock are bad words but tells you to shut your F'n mouth every other episode. Your a sweetheart- Keep your head up

In addition to being much sweeter, compassionate, and more fun than these gals, aren't you at least a generation younger? Spend time with girls who have more in common with you and who know what it means to be a friend. Kyle is as mean as it gets. Now that the blogs have shown her the viewers are disgusted with her behavior, it will be interesting to see what sort of facade she puts on next season. Her true colors are out there, I just hope her daughters never have to endure the humiliation of seeing how horrendous their mother (and aunt Kim ) behaved on these shows. You, on the other hand, should be proud of the way you handle yourself. I much prefer a friend with the flaw of not wearing a good bra than a friend with flaws that include being a bully with zero interest in empathizing with a new girl who could really use some support.

Good job as the hostesss asking the hot mess to leave! Surprised that Kyle thought she should have a say about that. . . she really DOES think she is Queen of the Universe, huh? Hoping the mean girl stunts (Kyle) stop soon. . . problem is, I don't know why you would want to be friends with them anyway--they have no class, moral compass, or empathy!!

You are probably the only person on this show who has a 100% positive feedback to your blog. That sums it up.

I would love to see more of you, you are very entertaining in addition to other great qualities. If I knew you personally though, I would try to convince you to stay the hell away from the cameras.

Wish you the best

You are too good for Kyle and Taylor. Shake them off and focus on kind people.

Brandi, I loved you from the start and I love you even more now. I really think the scrutiny you receive on the show is a result of your presence sparking some deep insecurities within the other women and by other women I mean Kyle (the sheep) Kim (the incoherent waste of space) and Dana (the worst cast of all of RHW history) and Taylor (the perpetual victim).

You have a very kind heart, you are beautiful, down to earth, modest and really comical! If you really knew how cool you were you wouldn't put up with any of this nonsense.

My kindest regards to go out to Taylor as a result of her marital problems, abuse and later her husbands demise. However, she was/is in no shape to be socializing, especially with alcohol involved. How come she isn't on rehab? Her behavior is destructive and really sickening. She has no one to blame but herself for staying in an abuse relationship.

BRANDI STAY TRUE AND CONTINUE TO BE YOURSELF! EVERYONE LOVES YOU AND IS ON YOUR SIDE!!

Your the realest, funniest, most attractive, housewife on the show, I also love Adrienne and I am starting to love Camille as well. You need to stay real, you make all the other housewives seem like they have something up their A**, honestly after watching this season all the other housewives true colors have shown up and you and adrienne are the only ones whose managed to stay real.

You make the show worth watching, the rest of the housewives besides adrienne and camille can suck it!

Brandi, I just read on the ABC website that Taylor Armstrong said she adores kim, and she has her full support. I guess if that comment doesn't tell you what you are dealing with, with some of these women nothing will. Taylor loathed Kim, they couldn't even be in the same room together, Taylor is one the most phony people on television. I would avoid that drama queen at all costs.

Brandi, Keep your head high. You are so above these catty women. I can't believe the way Kyle and Kim treated you--now I see why they are Paris Hilton's aunts (Paris had to get her bad behavior from somewhere!). The way they treated you when you first joined the group was like a bunch of mean girls in high school. I had respect for Kyle the first season, but her facade has since fallen and her true colors have come out this season. Also, you were the ONLY person brave enough to call out Kim about her substance abuse. That girl is a mess and needs serious help (I highly doubt too that just alcohol is involved). I am shocked that Kyle would cover for Kim instead of getting her help (was it to make her look better??). And the way Kyle made fun of your outfit at the Malibu party. Seriously? It's probably because she knows she could never pull off that look. The whole laser pointer thing was so immature. You are the real-est of all the fake housewives on this show.

I have really liked you all season, and think you have handled yourself beautifully in the midst of some really uncomfortable situations. What a tough crowd. However, I was disappointed to hear your party entertainment idea that you tossed out to Kyle for your party. How sad that you feel that you have to stoop so low for attention...you don't. It diminishes your beauty and who you are. You are not trash. You are worthy of whatever you dream for yourself. Best of wishes

I thought you were in the right to kick out Taylor. I'm suprised more people haven't done so when someone was in their house causing drama. You saw a way to nip it in the bud and did so! It's your house (or borrowed house lol) and you have every right to kick someone out if you want. If Taylor didn't want to be around Camille, she should have stayed home instead of going to your party and acting a fool.

Brandi, you don't need me to tell you- your party was so nice and crazy Taylor needed to exit with Kyle-(used to really like her)- you don't fit in with these self absorbed women. You are the only real person on there- You are the most honest, best looking, and fun girl on the show- those women are a bunch of snobs who have nothing better to do then talk behind each other's backs- I don't know how Kyle's antics don't effect her husband's business deals- my husband would be totally embarrassed if I behaved on national television in that manner- she needs to grow up- Taylor needs serious help- if I were you I would just feel sorry for her- PS- regarding your husband- he'll cheat on LRimes too- its just a matter of time- a cheater is a cheater- used to love her music too- now I can't stomach it-

Kudos to you Brandi!!!! It was right and good to throw Taylor out. You were in the right. Then, to have them just waltz back in!?!? and Kyle getting upset and pulling her stint , along with her crappy comments.....god!!! I feel for ya girl!!! dont let the junior high bullies and the psychos bum ya out....you are already showing who has more class....

Brandi...you are refreshingly honest, and you appear to be very kind hearted. Don't worry about fitting in, value the person you are. If people don't accept you it will be their lose, you are a good person and that is all that matters in the end.

In regards to your confrontation with Kim, as someone whose sister had addiction problems,I can tell you, you did the right thing. Kim's biggest problem is probably going undiagnosed as Bi-polar or having an anxiety disorder. She also has doctors too quick to reach for a prescription pad rather than giving her non-drug related therapy( these doctor's are nothing more than legal drug pushers) I believe Berkley or Stanford University has a clinical trial going on for anxiety disorder using non drug related therapy, and maybe if you read this and are willing(it takes courage sometimes), you can pass on that information to Kyle or Kim. Brandi to others, you may have seemed unkind saying what you did , but calling Kim out on her behavior was the kindest and most loving thing anyone could do for her, bravo to you Brandi...her friends do her no favors talking behind her back, and not talking to her about her obvious problems...she needs their help and that starts by being honest, and supportive in encouraging her to seek treatment...I wish others would have been that kind to my sister, instead of enabling her, and maybe she would still be with us today.

I wish you much joy in your life :-)

you're the realest housewife i've seen in a long time. way to take control at the party you hosted and asked taylor to leave. she was past the point of controlling herself. stay strong. i want to see more of you on the show!

I adore you Brandi!!!! I thought your ladies night was awesome!!! Very well put together. I believe Kyle has no regard whatsoever on how to be guest or friend. When you attended her event you were gracious and respectful. When she attended your party, she was rude, catty, and judgmental. She has two sides. I don't see that with you!!! Your a free spirit!! Stay true to yourself, and do u girl!!! your fabulous!!!!! P.S and Kim has bigger issues then you.

Brandi you are the best! I didn't like you at first, because I'm not a fan of cursing, (and as beautiful as you are, you'd be even prettier with a clean mouth to match), but you have shown yourself to be a kind,caring person, and you have way more class than most of the others. Please don't let some of the horrible women on the show make you feel bad about yourself in any way. Like your friend said at the end of last night's show don't try to fit in with the rest of the girls on the show. You do NOT belong with these women, and that is a GOOD thing. Hope you stay strong, and you enjoy raising your free-spirited, grass pee-ing boys!

Brandi- Too bad your party didn't win anyone over!! Maybe it is because you show what a low-class trash bag you are in every situation that arises!!!!

Brandi I absoulutely adore you! If I knew more women like you I would have more girlfriends unfortunately they are catty, backstabbing, attention-grabbers like Taylor and Kyle. Just keep being you and stop trying to impress women that don't deserve your time. I think Kyle forgets her niece has one of the hottest selling homemade porns out there so perhaps she shouldn't be so judgemental and prude!

Brandi, you seem likable when your filter is working properly. Like, during the day, when you aren't drinking. You were very obviously tipsy at your party; probably a result of being nervous. Every time you drink, you say something trashy. Usually something that involves the word "slut" or "slutty". Lay of the wine when the cameras are around, sweetie! It makes you say trashy things.

I adore you Brandi, and I think the public generally adores you too... Just be yourself, most of the ladies are jealous of you. They treat you like an outsider because they know that you will be taking one of their jobs soon. I hope Bravo does that right thing and axes Taylor shes a hot mess, and frankly I'm tired of her pity party.

Hey Brandi I'm a fan Of Camille & Now I've enjoyed watching you on the RHOBH. The fact that you're so “frank” with the ladies, truly keeps my interest. Some of the ladies are not use to that, I hope when you watch the episodes where Kim keeps saying, "Brandi" she doesn't exist, I think she realized you're the only one who saw right through her "addiction. Good for you for speaking about it & Kyle does owe you an apology because you were right. Please stay Blunt & the ladies need someone like you around.

Brandi, I just love you to death... do you really want to be on the show with these women? The way Kyle acts towards you is embaressing... I used to like her until you came on the show and she's showed us her real personality. I don't care to hear how we only get a glimpse into people's lives or not.... that's like an excuse when characters aren't shown in a good light. Brandi, I love your moxie, your straight forward approach... and by all means girlfriend... wear no bra if you don't want to. I mean... is that the only thing mean rich girls have to pick on you for? Let them.... I hope Bravo chooses to bring on one of your friends... even out the playing field a little. You're a beautiful woman.... honestly.... I had not heard of you other than the messy public divorce you went through.... which I'm sorry for.... but stay strong girl.... the media may not have been nice to you but the girls on the show are making you look like a saint.

Brandi, we love you. I was so happy when you asked Taylor to leave. Who does Kyle think she is talking to you the way she did and striking you?! She is so classless and jealous of you. Most of us love you and can't stand Kyle so don't stress girl. This show would be perfect without Taylor, Kim, Kyle and Dana!!!!

Brandi, I thought your white outfit that everyone talked trash about was way cute. Girl, you've got it, so flaunt it!!! Who cares what those jealous idiots think. If I were you, I wouldn't waist my time trying to befriend those people. Stay true to yourself, girl.

Hi Brandi! You did the right thing in asking Taylor to leave; I would have done the same thing. As for Kyle do not worry she is no-ones friend. Keep your friendship with Camile and Adrienne they are for real. Lisa do not worry about her, just do some reading about WWII and Winston Churchill ..... :) and that's it!

Brandi, I think you are funny, fun, and real. Don't be jaded by the other women, keep being yourself. You were put in a very bad position of having to do something to get your guests in control, you did nothing wrong with asking Taylor to leave. Problem is Taylor is beyond a hot mess, she has some serious issues that are hard to watch on tv. I wouldn't care much if Queen Kyle didn't like me, let it go... her opinion doesn't count for much considering the way she acts.

Id say most of the other housewives don't let you in because they are SO jealous of you, plain and simple. Try not to feel hurt, you don't need friends like that anyway. I think Adrienne is the only one worth your time. Oh, and your boobs look great:)

Brandi, About that "trying to fit in" stuff; 1) Buck up, be strong, believe in yourself! Worry less about how they like you and decide if you like them. 2) In hindsight, look how well you are actually doing! The viewers really like and support you, and the Housewives who are mature, balanced people do too.

Hang in there, Brandi!

Brandi, I think you are great! You always come from a good place and mean well. You did the right thing by asking Taylor to leave. Any proper host would have done the same thing. Kyle has a high school girl mentality. I wouldn't try too hard to be friends with her. Stick with Adrienne. She is secure with herself and a true friend.

Brandi, the cream rose to the top last night. You looked and acted wonderfully and I was impressed with the way you handled yourself. As this all shakes out you are looking kinder than some of the others and they are looking pretty small. Stick with Camille and hopefully you can befriend Lisa.

I must admit I am not a fan of yours, but you certainly did the right thing by asking Taylor to leave your party - especially since it was not your house, but belonged to a friend. Taylor is so crazy that she would have broken something or hurt someone sooner or later!

Here's are some tips when dealing with Kyle, Kim, or Taylor. Don't turn your back for a second unless you're wearing something a knife can't plunge through, let them run their nasty jealous mouths and simply smile sweetly and ignore them, keep on being funny, pretty, and friendly. You are KILLING them because you are younger, more attractive, and don't have to bash every woman you see to make yourself feel better. Just smile and go on about your business. They have no class and each week they sink lower lower into their dysfunctional jealous muck.
