The opening of SUR lounge.. . .what a night!
Upon walking in I noticed one of the production staff, Julian, acting as a bouncer and made a little comment. No I wasn't flirting with a complete stranger. I was flirting with someone I had spent the entire season joking around with.
Once inside, the place looked gorgeous and sexy I was very impressed. Lisa said I should invite a few friends to the opening so I came with a gaggle of gals. One of my friends being Linda, whom I had zero idea had ever dated Paul! Had I had any clue of this I would not have invited her although we are very close. For her part, Linda very adamantly denies ever being Paul's girlfriend and said they went on a few dates many many years ago and nothing more. Still I wish I had known that.
The girls and I were all pretty hungry so Lisa sent some appetizers our way. Looking down at this waitress who was serving me meatballs, I realized she was the reason I finally left my husband. When the news broke of Eddie having an affair with LeAnn Rimes, he denied it and we entered into marriage counseling. I wanted to save my marriage and keep my family together and thought I could forgive this one time mistake. Maybe a month later this women (the waitress at Sur) was on Access Hollywood crying and speaking about her relationship with my then-husband Eddie. She went on and on about how she couldn't leave him even after she found out I was pregnant with our second child. She cried saying Eddie didn't have the decency to break up with her before starting an affair with LeAnn Rimes. Ummmm that was it for me!!! I packed my stuff and moved to the Beverly Hills Hotel but not before putting a few well deserved gashes into the tires of our Harley Davidson motorcycles. Eddie is lucky I didn't cut something else off!!
So there this woman was serving me food, that I had only ever seen on TV sharing her story with the world. I couldn't help myself, I blurted out "you use to sleep with my husband." She had a huge, very smug smile on her face and said, "Yes I did," and went over to tell Lisa we had a problem. The truth of the matter is that regardless of how I felt about this woman, I owed her a giant thank you. Who knows how long I would have stayed with Eddie if she hadn't told her story to the press? She made me realize that a zebra never changes his stripes and I needed to leave.
I can't stop laughing about the Gay Bull Mastiff comment!!! And you are so funny and honest and I love you being on the show!! I can't believe that nobody else has had the balls to speak out about Kim's addiction. It was glaringly obvious that she was on something, so good on you. I hate how her and Kyle treated you at the Game Night at Dana's. They were so rude and immature! xx
Brandi...everything happens for a reason. Like that waitress speaking to the press. Now Eddie can be LeAnn's headache. Can't change the spots on a leopard.
Eddie is probably a serial cheater. Good that you've moved on. You deserve better.
Kudos for showing the restraint that you did... I would have punched that girl in the mouth before she was even finished saying "Yes I did." You're better off without Eddie; LeAnn will get burned by him one day with no one but karma to blame. At least you have friends, and I hope to see you back next season -
Brandi, you are so awesome ! You tell it like it is and you were spot on with Kim, I have no clue why she is on there. Her life is pointless and boring to watch. I get such a kick out of watching you and Lisa interact, and the sense of humor between you keeps me watching your show.
You were hilarious last night. The only time I laughed out loud was the look on Ken's face when you told him he looked like a "gay bull mastiff." I really hope you and Kyle can get along.
Brandi, I certainly hope you'll be back for another season. I know Bravo will keep you, as everyone fell in love with you. PLEASE come back....you were so much fun, so refreshing, and I love how you blurt out what the rest of us whisper under our breath.
The opening of Sur would have been fabulous if it wasn't for Taylor strutting in with her doctor to hold court. GMAB! Honestly, just when you think you've seen everything.......... Was that really the time and place? But wait, you didn't comment on that, did you?
Kim was a wreck and the compassion/kindness you've showen her this season has been extrodinary. I have so much respect for you. I know Kim recently left rehab and I'm very happy for her and proud of her. I will keep her in my prayers as I know she's such a good person with such a bad problem.
Your ex Eddie is such a l o s e r. Oh man, he must be kicking himself big time. He will NEVER find anyone like you, you're the whole package and then some. I wonder who he's cheating on Leanne with, 'cause you know he is!
Lisa genuinely loves you to pieces, that's so evident. Good for her for kicking out that tramp/hostess or whatever she was. Lisa's a class act.
I think you hit the nail on the head with Cedric and Lisa - there's still affection and regret there, but I also agree it's too late. Lisa could never trust him again, and rightly so.
Thanks Brandi for making this season so fun to watch. REALLY keeping my fingers crossed on you coming back for season 3. Until then... xo
This season was YOURS (and Lisa's, of course). You HAVE to come back. I will really be upset at Bravo if that does not happen. I LOVE YOU!!!!
You are such a great addition to this show. If Bravo doesnt sign you on as a housewife they are crazy! I love your no nonsense style and your awesome sense of humor. Its about time these girls have someone who'll show them how to loosen up amd have a good time. Keep being you and let the haters hate!
I thought the way you handled the ken bull mastiff comment was great. You nailed it on the head, being honest is the way to go. The comment was just funny, and you said it and you owned it. thats why people like you!
I really do hope you come back next season. You don't really match with the other housewifes at first sight, yet you were able to really enter the group. You and Lisa make a great duo and I'm sure you could be great friends in the future. Your honesty is refreshing and you really do know how to have fun!
I hope you are back next season! You are a refreshing addition.
I didn't think anything about your comment about a cute bouncer other than that is your personality.
I felt for you with the waitress.
I am glad that you have seemed to be your own person on the show and not trying too hard to fit in. I also think that Mauricio naming you as his least favorite house wife is telling of Kyle's jealously. Sometimes they can't win and have to say what we want them to.
i like brandi and she should stay on the show, she is a breath of fresh air. truthful, which they cant handle
YOU ARE AMAZING AND I HAVE ENJOYED WATCHING YOU ALL SEASON! You showed so much class in dealing with the "waitress", your willingness not to jeopardize her job and let her stay even though you were uncomfortable, shows what type of person you are. Thank Goodness that Lisa was a good friend and supported you by asking her to leave. Your choice to stay out of the Kim situation, but to ask someone who has dealt with addiction to check on her, shows how much you care, even though she treated you so bad. Hopefully now that she is out of Rehab, she will watch the show and see for herself how horrible she was to you. Kyle has truly proven that she is a mean girl. She was mean to Kim and Camille last season and everyone blamed Kim’s Alcohol and Camille, but I think that now everyone is seeing that it is just who Kyle is. The worst part of it is that she doesn’t have the excuse of being an addict that Kim does. I am so glad that you and Lisa are becoming friends since Kyle stabbed her in the back with the whole Taylor/ Russell lawsuit threat. As Lisa’s friend Kyle should have had her back and said something to her, but she didn’t, not even when Camille was threatened. Had Kyle said something to begin with Camille may have never been threatened! It is great to see that you are friends with Lisa, Camille and Adrianne. The four of you are great together, the other four, not so much! YOU ARE A GREAT ADDITION TO THE SHOW AND BRAVO WOULD BE CRAZY NOT TO ADD YOU TO NEXT SEASONS CAST AS A REGULAR!
Brandi, glad you and Lisa are finding some common ground! It was very classy of her to ask her employee to leave so that you would feel more comfortable. Honesty is the best policy so keep it up!
I hope you come back!!! I think you are fun and so brutally honest it is a breath of fresh air! i think you brought something to the show that was missing. Although I adore everyone ...well not everyone I do think they should give kim the boot she is boring to watch and really she just doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of you. I do hope Dana comes back also. I don't really care if Taylor comes back... i am still on the fence on if she is even telling the truth about all of it. I found it strange that she would bring her Dr to Lisa's opening to have a session I mean seriously was that the place to do it? She in my opinion is too weird and needs to go.... but not matter what I do hope you come back! You really just make me laugh! and btw I think you are way better off with out the X hubs ~ its great you can both parent your kids successfully even being apart. And ~ You should flirt! its fun and harmless and it gives you a little boost... soooo, Enjoy!
Dear Brandi, Sometimes the world is just a small town!! You are such a class act to say you owe that girl a Thank You (sometimes those things happen for a reason), and I am glad to see Lisa was protective of you. I sincerely hope to see you in RHWOBH next season- the show would not be the same without you. I also hope your friendships with Lisa and Camille become stronger and stronger. You deserve good friends like these! Thanks for all the fun and reality...... xx
UGh.. i and my family WILL NOT watch this show without you and camille.. you guys are the best!!! You are a lot like myself... a free spirit with a good heart
Brandi, I was all prepared to hate you this season but you are the best! Is it hard maintaining your friendship with Jen when you blame your behavior on alcohol all the time? Is she 12-stepping you? Kidding! You are fun, honest and great. I'll have to talk to Andy Cohen but I hope to see you back as a REAL HOUSEWIFE. I am a little confused, you were brought in as a "friend of a housewife'? Did you have to use the back door? You should not have settled in the BRAVO negotiations, you are a REAL HOUSEWIFE!
I have to hand it to you....good for you for owning up to that bull Mastiff! I would have been too scared to tell him the truth to his face. He's scary! You are handling yourself well with the Bev Hills ladies. I think you are a great addition to the cast. Your comments about what is happening around you are spot on. You are hilarious. I hope to see you back next season.
UGH.. if you are NOT on next season.. me and my family will stop watching.. you are great on the show.. you bring fun and light heartedness.. you remind me of myself.. free spirt with a great heart.. dont let kyle bring you down ever!
Brandi, This is my first time commenting on here and I've been reading these blogs forever. I just had to write and say that I love you on the show! I love how honest you are and how fun you are, I hope that they bring you back next season!!!
Brandi, I really hope you come back to the show full-time next season. They are nuts if they don't add you as a permanent cast member. I think many women who watch the show would have loved to see you confront the waitress more on camera. Whores like that give women a bad name. Personally, I don't know how you restrained yourself from smacking her after she made the comment back to you. You showed yourself as a class act in a horrible uncomfortable situation unlike the low-class whore the waitress showed herself to be.
Brandi, you better come back!! We love watching you. Bravo would be making a huge mistake not bringing you on as a regular cast member.
Brandi handled the waitress/girlfriend situation with a lot more decency than many of of would have. At the end of the day, she is a waitress, and should really think twice to act with more class when she gets her.. what was it.. two seconds of fame on tv. But this waitress is still milking it for everything she has, her only claim to fame.. She slept with another woman's husband. Wow. And Lisa made us all proud when she dismissed the waitress from the party. At the end of the day we know who Brandi Glanville is, and she is still just the hired help.
I hope you come back next year. I think you are the missing piece of the beverly hills housewives puzzle.
First off I want to say all you ladies looked beautiful... Sur was absolutely stunning... Lisa was an absolute class act to ask her to leave, major respect.. you handled that situation VERY well.. even though I'm sure for you at this point it's not about Eddie anymore.. but, her smug response "yes, I did" I probably would have clocked her.. you have amazing restraint... and it was the right decision.. you can be proud and hold your head high.. I would have been carried out in handcuffs with my head in shame that I'd let her get to me.. I was floored Cedric had the gall to show up to Lisa's event.. I was also happy to see you ask him to leave as well.. The situation with Kim and Taylor speak for themselves... both were a train wreck and the party was terrible place to discuss what they did... I give Jennifer mad props for reaching out to Kim after how nasty she's been to you both.. but, as I've seen you both say.. you can't hold it against someone who's sick.. I am definitely hoping the parting line of "if you don't come back" is pure speculation on your part.. I think you make a great addition to this cast.. yes, you are different in some ways.. but, all GOOD ways.. you have brought life and fun to this show.. I've seen all the ladies come out of their shells and have a good time.. I've never laughed so much at Lisa... Camille has shown her fun/wild side as well... and hey you even brought out the freak in Adrienne and Paul a little.. I've thoroughly enjoyed you on the show this season.. hope to see much more of you and Jennifer on Bravo VERY SOON :)
Brandi, We have grown to love you...I sincerely hope you come back next season full time! you deserve it after the stuff some sisters said & did. enough said....I promise if shana/taylor is invited back & your not...I know I won't watch...still not buying her story I think it's suspect..I may be alone on this I believe it's entirely possible the injury happened as 1st described. She just does not strike me as a victim...she creates them sorry...
I sure hope you come back next season. You are a great addition to the show. You have a great attitude and always speak your mind. You are a strong beautiful woman and it shows. I am glad to read that you are friends with some of the women on the show.
I was hesitant to watch RHOBH after last season, as I felt Kyle was and still is a complete snake. However, it was your addition to the cast which has made me not only tune into the entire season, but has made this particular season one of the best ever in the Housewives franchise. I really hope that next season we get to see more of you and that you will be hired as a full-time housewife. I feel as though you are a great role model because you are honest to both yourself and to the world. You have a much more relatable personality than the rest of the women, and add a much-needed dose of humor and sex appeal. Please come back next year!
Brandi, I think you're amazing! You bring so much life and fun to the show. You handled the situation at Sur with class. I hope you come back next season, but as a Real Housewife and not just a "Friend of." I would love to see you with your boys on the show. I'm sure you're an amazing mama. Be well and keep smiling.
Brandi, I cannot imagine watching next season without you in it. You were the breath of fresh air we were gasping for.
Brandi, I am so sorry that you had to go through so much anguish and betrayal with your ex. But it does sound like he was a cad to begin with. Karma does have a way of settling things and I doubt he will fare well in life. His career will always be that of a B-grade actor (I honestly had never heard of him before the affair with Rimes). And once a cheater, I believe always a cheater. LeAnn Rimes is not the most attractive or moral young woman (after all she cheated with a married man). Eddie seems a bit full of himself and likes to take advantage of his good looks and I think will continue to do so after things settle down with his new wife. I'm glad you've moved on though I'm sure it still hurts. You are a lovely young woman who I think will find true love. Meanwhile, be the best mother you can be and keep doing things to fulfill yourself spiritually and intellectually. This will ensure you attract an equally deserving man.
So sorry you have to be tied to your Ex in so many ways still, must be hard, as always... Thanks for sharing the real you!
You better be back next season or they will loose a viewer in me! good luck !
You are an adorable breath of fresh and real air to the show. Down to earth, evolved and owning of your potty mouth. Hope to see you more next season!
PLEASE BRAVO BRING BRANDI BACK!!!!!!! Brandi you are sooooo funny and extremely beautiful. For some reason I am so drawn to your voice. Its very high pitch but I like it lol. so BRAVO I AM BEGGING YOU TO PLEASE BRING BRANDI BACK AS A FULL TIME HOUSEWIFE!!! TEAM BRANDI 4EVA!!!!
You are such a wonderful addition to the show! I totally get your humor! You are super cool, unique, sexy, and hilarious! A true blue Calufornia girl!
Brandi I truly hope to see you next season! You are a breath of fresh air with your straight forwardness and honesty! You are the definition of "REAL" compared to the other ladies, although I love them as well! Could do without Taylor for a couple seasons as I feel she needs to heal and get her life in order and the only way she will is to get out of the limelight for awhile. Anywho, I lover your candor, think your a beautiful person and hope to see the wonderful things coming your way in the near future!
You are the best! I look forward to watching you each week! I also love how Lisa tried to hate you, but just couldn't resist!
B you are so right the waitress' attempt at her 15 minutes of fame, or whatever her motive was, did help you move in the right direction. I don't think you owe her a thank you, but that's just me. She's very smug, & let's be honest she's still a waitress! I guess not Hollywood dreams come true! ;)
Bravo has to bring you back next season, they have nothing left, but 2 hot messes & boring regular housewives. They need you & the fun(plus Jenn) that you bring to the show. How many annoying hours of crying did we sit through this season? OY! No matter what you are a star & you will shine. RHOBH will fail without you, remember DC! ;) I hope that they were nice to you at the reunion.
I hope Bravo invites you back! you are such a breadth of fresh air - honest and kind! I love your interaction with Lisa - you guys seem to really hit it off! I loved that scene when you Paul and Ken were clearing up the air :)! It was so funny! Lord, I hope they get you back!
Love your honesty and hope you come back. Good for you for slashing tires. I can only imagine how I would've reacted. I'm happy you've moved on. Anyone that tells you you shouldn't talk about your experiences under the pretense that you're not suppose to if you've moved on is trying to protect themselves. It's your life too and those are the facts.
One thing though, why is no one addressing how weird it is that Taylor's doc showed up at a bar/party to talk to her friends? Shouldn't he have suggested his office? It's kind of creepy. Just saying...
