Brandi Glanville

Brandi discusses the medication she took to fly and apologizes for her comments about Kim's boyfriend -- but not her swimsuit.

on Jan 4, 20120

Wow, I'm pretty embarrassed by my actions in this episode to say the least. (I told you it gets worse before it gets better. Thanks for sticking with me!) Let me clarify, I have an extreme fear of flying. I have all my life. In fact, I have a prescription from my doctor for anti-anxiety medication that I use for long flights and smaller airplanes. It is the only occasion that I take them. While I did do a small toast for Mauricio’s birthday when we boarded, I avoid mixing my medication with alcohol, as its very unsafe. I now see how terrible this looks as it played out. Also, I did have a glass of wine once we had already landed and the medication had worn off.

While there have been many things being reported and written about me (especially of late), I would like to reiterate something to my fans: I have always been a free spirit and a bit of a wild child, but I am always the one in control. I am a mother of two lovely boys and that is my priority. That is why I only take anti-anxiety medication when flying; I hate the feeling that I am not in control of my own mind/body.

I actually loved you in this episode and agree with the comments all the girls said. You are hilarious and cool chick. P.S. He does look like a gay bull mastiff LOL

It's only a problem when you don't have a great body and you wear a bikini like that. You are by far the best and most beautiful housewife (inside and out).

I can't believe it, but I actually felt bad for Kim's Ken, both at Sur and in Hawaii. He's ugly but there's nothing he can do about that--I wish he hadn't heard what you said. I haven't seen anything on the shows that explains why he is thought to be ugly on the inside too. I actually think he's too good for Kim now. I'm afraid I've lost all sympathy for her--whatever's wrong with her offers no excuse for her nastiness to everyone. But you rock--I can't imagine anyone finding Leanne Rymes more attractive--maybe it's her money. I hope you and Lisa can continue to become good friends--you and she are the smartest, funniest on the show.

No apologies needed about Ken. Ugh...he's awful inside and out.

Youremind me of me after my divorce from first husband. It hurts you ego and she is well known. In years to come you will be so glad he's not your husband cause you will not recognize him and he won't look like that.

My second husband of twelve years is a grown up and adorable. You will have a great husband next time. Enjoy your time off. You will be married forever the next time!

You are my absolute favorite Housewife of all time Brandi! I love your positive attitude, your sympathetic heart, your sense of humor, and you are drop dead gorgeous! You give me something to look forward to on otherwise horrid Mondays. I just got a Nielsen Survey in the mail and I was going to just trash it but I remembered you and your show and decided to participate. I told them in the survey that Bravo is my favorite and RHOBH is my favorite show all because of Brandi Glanville.

LIsten up Andy! We love you and the Real Housewives of America want more Brandi!

Love you, Brandi! You're adorable, funny, real. I agree about Kim's boyfriend--gay mastiff is the perfect descriptor for him. I can't look at him and breathe at the same time...

Brandi - I think you're a hoot! A great addition to the show as well. Don't bother apologizing to Ken or Kim, remember she doesn't accept apologies from ya! Let her stew in her own hatred. You're better than that!

Brandi, You are a welcomed addition to the HW mix. I love your honesty and wackiness. Keep true to yourself. Have fun and for gosh sakes, quit apologizing to Kim. Poor thing is a lost sole who is in need of serious help. I love all of the other ladies on the show also. I am hopeful that you will be on in the next season, however, rumors have been put out there that some may bail out. Other media says not so much. I am hoping that there is no truth in it. This is a spectacular group of women and you add the spice. Take care. !!!

Brandi, You rock! I am much like you, speak my mind, swear like a trucker, and f*@# them if they can't take a joke! Keep being you and never bend to the will of others. I still rock a hot bikini at my age (41) and really don't care what others think. My daughter loves me, and my style. she's 17 and also very much her own person. I think you are a breath of fresh air in Beverly Hills!

See You
See You

Brandi, I liked seeing you stand and pretty much just take Kim's outburst at the white party. You calmly stated your case of each you (yourself, Kim, and Kyle) all behaving badly at party night, and let her off load. Kim in my mind anyway is a good person, she just is having problems and the doctors don't seem to be doing a good job with her medication. They keep adding to her list and not changing any of it. I just don't think she is being herself. So what I am taking so long to say is you were wonderful to kind of see this and not cause a big drama. You should know about the big drama stuff by now. Was wonderful to see someone with a calm way. Don't change a thing you were just great, and please don't become one of the mean girls. Stay like you are now.......

You are so funny Brandi. I don't think you need to apologize to Kim at all he is ugly and she is not your friend. You looked great in your bikini the only thing I have to say is that if you want to be friends with these ladies maybe you shouldn't wear a bikini that small infront of their husbands just saying.

Brandi, you made me laugh so hard on that trip and honey if you have the body and felt like walking around naked, GO FOR IT! We all have a short shelf life for these bodies so if you got it, flaunt it and for those that don't wanna see it, close your eyes or change the channel.

Brandi, you are a free-spirit and very fun to watch. If people like Kyle mock you than that's cool...Kyle goes to parties and does the splits on tables or frantically jerks her hair around like an attention starved 7 year old. I hope you are back next year!

you were so funny in this episode!! :) and i thought you looked cute in your bikini, here in fl every tourist in the world puts on a bikini fitting or not so if they can do it so can you. you really looked great in it i definitely would have been hating on you too!! :) i like your attitude on the show. its always more fun when you are on it. don't sweat the small stuff! :)

Brandi, OMG, you can rock a bikini with the BEST of them and you dont need heels to look sexy in that bikini. I just wished all the women would have just said F it and wore their swimsuits as well. Not everyone can look like you in a bikini. But, it doesnt mean in their own way they wont look good to.Geez you could have been an Victoria Secrets model. Youre perfect.Like Lisa, I to have been married 30 years. I married young. It wouldnt bother me in the least if someone flirted with my husband. After 30 years theirs nothing to worry about, and theirs absolutely nothing wrong for them to look and not touch. I thought it was cute and could tell Lisa really didnt care. She's secure in her marriage to Ken, she doesnt have to worry. Lol.The same goes for me. I was going to say, if youve got it. FLAUNT IT. I wish Camilles suit had been more revealing she's got it to and should have flaunted it as well, she held out on us.Good luck to you Brandi, I have a feeling we'll be seeing you next season. For sure,

Sorry, but I am not a fan of Brandi. I think the other woman, bicker as they may, have real class. To me Brandi has zero. I think Brandi could be really fun in the right social circle, she just not for this one. On the other hand, maybe they all need to be shook up a lil...lol And as far as Kyle, I think she is really cool, and she is a care taker. Hard to turn that off

Overall, your my favorite RHOBH to watch. Your humor, candor, comfort in your own skin, and lack of snobbiness are refreshing.

That been said, hanging all over Ken while on the xanax and booze combo was a bit much. I am sure you have no problem attracting men, so just stick to the ones who are not already attached to other women. You and Lisa both have wicked sense of humors, so there's more to gain in terms of fun if you do not ruffle her feathers.

Hey Brandi! I think you are rough around the edges, but still a diamond. But, every time you apologize to Kim for telling her how it is, she gains a superiority complex that she doesn't deserve. Someone needed to tell her the truth, and you did, but then you retracted it by apologizing. It doesn't take a genius to see that she has a problem, but there is no need to take her problems out on you. I feel sorry for Kim because she is an addict and she needs help, but at the same time, she is a classless woman and you shouldn't stoop down to her level.. She doesn't deserve your attention. You might have a sailor's mouth, but you are a good hearted person, and Kim is just lost in a bottle of vodka. Don't giver her the satisfaction, just ignore her! I think some of the ladies don't give you as much credit as you deserve as a person,but I also believe they will learn to see you for WHO you really are ;) Happy New Year !!! Sharpone

Brandi, you are a breath of fresh air on the show. I applaud your candidness and that you are your own person. My only criticism is how your voice goes up 3-4 octaves when upset or trying to make a point. It makes you sound less credible and mature. Bring your tone down a little and I think you'll get more respect. (Easy for me to say).

You were awesome in the bikini and your comments cracked me up. Lisa was ridiculously jealous of your body and it showed throughout the episode. She was so conscious of how great you looked that she could not even allow herself to open up that hideous wrap. Its a shame when jealousy causes one to strike out at and try to shame another for no other reason except for a lack of confidence in one's self. You keep your head up Brandi and keep being the wonderful and carefree person you are. I like the way you stand up for yourself when it seems like the whole world is against you, you are a very strong woman. Don't let all these bitter and insincere people drag you down into their world of mutual agreed upon misery.

I think you're funny and hilarious and an added bonus to the already stuck up cast(excluding Adrienne and Lisa). Can't stand Kyle. Never liked her and she's a smoocher. Does she work? THe only think she does is instigate and flaunt the Hilton name. Hello?!? You're not a Hilton!!! Hope to see you return to Season 3 and hope Kyle doesn't come back.

At the white party, you handled Kim's badgering very well, and with dignity.

certain HW's have a real honesty that creates a soft spot in viewers, that they might not gained otherwise. you are a great example of that! we viewers are much more savvy than some bravo-lebrities would think. you might not necessarily be a "good girl", but, you certainly seem to be an honest one! God bless you for that!

Xanax or not, I thought your behavior with Lisa's husband was a bit much! I say if you have the body wear it! Why aplogize to Kim? she isn't going to ever aplogize to you. Do you really think she cares anyway? It would just give her another chance to attack you.

Hope you are back next year but maybe Dana, Kim, and possibly Kyle could be sent packing?

Wow....You, hands down are about the realist person on reality tv. Not sure that you read all the comments but you are just like the fun down down to earth gal that most towns are used to and love. All people love a bit of wild and naught mixed with class. You can hold your own. Um....why don't you and Camille get a spinoff????!!!! Anyhow....love to watch you and the Ken and Lisa banter was cute:-)

Brandi! Don't apologize for anything! U are the best addition to the cast. I hate flying as well so I totally understood! Especiallly that plane u had to get on. Talk about Tin Can!

Brandi, You are a very beautiful woman, both inside and out. Many people are not born with a aesthetically pleasing placement of flesh on bone nor can they have Paul fix it. When a beautiful person dismisses another's looks, their inside beauty appears shallow. There are things you can think, but should not say. Otherwise, you are playing on the Richard's level and you are far above that. I feel badly for Kim's boyfriend; I wonder if he knew what he was getting into with her when Kim is in front of the camera. Notice how is now the "cause" for all of her mistakes. How east it is to blame him instead of addressing the real causes of Kim's thoughtless behavior!

Brandi, I was so upset for you when you first came on the show and everybody was giving you a hard time...but the tide is turning and now the truth is coming out and you nailed it early on! I just love your comments on the show and I think you are a great addition. After all the drama in your life that focused more on the ex and his new wife, it's nice to get to know YOU. High five girl. OH yeah, I have to take xanax to fly, too.

After watching the last couple episodes, I am sold on you and after the party at your house I am over Kyle and especially Taylor. She is a trouble maker and mean girl! You seem care-free and anti-drama. The more I watch the season, the more I see how mean and catty the other girls can be, besides Lisa, Camille, Dana, you and Adrianne. I hope they get rid of Kyle, Kim and Taylor.... all the best to you!

As a fifty something, I too never wear a bra. I find them too confining and uncomfortable. If anyone has a problem with it, I really feel it is their issue, not mine. I missed the memo that it is mandatory. Love your free spirit!!! You remind me on myself, many years ago. haha

I'm impressed by your kindness and honesty. You don't jump on the bandwagon when one HW slams another just to be part of the group. I never get the impression that you react out of jealousy or cattiness, as I have with most of the other woman across all the franchises, including RHOBH.

I think you can now sympathize with Kyle for the frustrating and difficult situation she is in w/ Kim... always trying to keep her sister from imploding. I feel that, knowing what you know now, if you were at a small group gathering and Kim kept getting up to go to the bathroom, you wouldn't call attention to it like you did on game night. We all know Kim is sick and it's clear that you now "get it." She has some major issues and the kind thing to do is not to call attention to it, and to show some kindness to Kyle, who is clearly struggling and in pain about her sister's illness. I hope you can become friends with Kyle-- or, if not, at least have some sympathy for the difficult predicament she is in with her sister and how she clearly becomes completely stressed out when Kim is around.

High five for realness Miss Brandi. I thought your remarks about Kim's boyfriend were spot on target. At the very least, there is nothing TV worthy about him. On that note, I would like to see some cast replacements next season with you AS a replacement. To be as diplomatic as possible while still making my point, messy unaccountable substance misusers are not entertaining episode after episode. You bring much more intrigue to the table.
