Brandi Glanville

Brandi is glad she stayed out of the fray of Lisa's tea party, but she understands now where the animosity came from.

on Nov 16, 20110

Lisa isn't a wallflower and Taylor must have considered that she would say something, right? Taylor seem prepared for the showdown, didn't she? Honestly, I'm glad I wasn't involved at all. The talk with Taylor was a long time coming. Beverly Hills is a small town. While Taylor never said anything to me personally about her marriage, there had been a lot of gossip and talk. Having said that, I knew Russell only briefly. He was always kind and sweet to me, so I will not speak ill of someone who cannot defend himself.

On a lighter note -- As far as Lisa's ego goes, I don't know her well enough to judge, but if having pictures of yourself around is egotistical then none of these women are ever invited to my house!

Watching this episode, explains a lot of what was confusing to me in the following weeks. I didn't understand why all the animosity existed until now.

The moral of the story is that if you or anyone you know is a victim of domestic abuse, please reach out to a health care professional immediately.

Until next time. . .

You are so young and intelligent. I do not understand why you seek out Kyle's approval or friendship. She is a miserable jealous person. Enjoy your genetic gifts and make no apologies to her or her vile sister. Of course you helped Kim out brining to light her addiction but you don't need Kyle's blessing to confirm what all of America now knows. I wish for you success and happiness. I also hope you find a really nice guy to adore you. Remember, sometimes the men that are not as beautiful as you are the best husbands and lovers.....because they appreciate what they have....good luck with everything you pursue.

You are life’s greatest gift; give your heart, your soul, and your truth to life gifting the beauty of your love for all. Never take life for granted, appreciate your gifts and expand on them, simplify your life and live negative drama free. The simpler you live your life the most beautiful your life will be. Nothing in life is hard unless you make it hard, we all have challenges in life but if we face and meet all of our challenges we live problem free. Get rid of the drama lying to your mind when true love is so easy to find, find the beauty within your heart and love forever, together our love, one love

Forget,forget and it is on the way out...

Don't know how you do it, Girl....that is one tough crowd of women. Keep up the good work. You're beautiful and the Alpha Females are just threatened by you. I have dealt with mean girls and anyone who is beautiful, well spoken and carries themselves with confidence is seen as a threat by the tribe. Hang in there.

Your honesty is refreshing, just wish you would watch your language as you have children. I wouldn't apologize to Kim anymore. You look like the bigger person and she seems to have no desire to be kind and that is just toxic. I wouldn't want to be around anyone that can't be nice or let go of something once an apology was given. As for your ex, I would bet he is not in love with her. He seems like he is in love with himself and her money. At least I hope he is paying you better child support now:)

Well Brandi I think your failed attempt to speak to Kim was hilarious. Maybe you should try talking to her one on one instead of throwing digs at her. If you are talking about Kyle in your blog you should just say her name and stop acting high schoolish with your little comments. I'm not feeling you because you play the victim and then in the next breath talk badly about people because they don't agree with you or react the way you want them to.

Brandi, you're awesome and did the right thing by trying to make amends to Kim. Regarding egos, you're right about that one. I too have pictures of myself all over the house (used to show jumpers and then galloped racehorses for a living). Couldn't have photos of the animals without myself in them since I was sitting on the beasts when their pictures were taken! Furthermore I think you understand plenty. Kim is not well. Kyle is co-dependent. Kyle comes across as nasty or mean when: (a) she feels compelled to defend someone; or (b) she does her compulsive people-pleasing as she did by not confronting Taylor when Taylor dissed Camille at that RIDICULOUS birthday party. Honestly, you seem like someone who'd be fun to know. Even more than that, you seem to be shockingly mentally healthy.

Dear Brandi

You were courageous to approach Kim and try to let bygones be bygones. And what a great sense of humor, the comments about AC were funny.

You seem to be the voice of reason and I am so glad you are on this show!! Hang in there! If Kim does not come around and at least genuinely listen to your apology then it will be her loss. I think you have given her alot of opportunities to resolve the issues and she has ignored your efforts so the ball is in her court now. You have been the bigger person and now it is time for Kim to grow up and make the next step. Looking forward to seeing more of you this season!

You stand up for you Brandi, hold those tears in Brandi an stand up for yourself the strongest way you know how even if you stand alone you stand for something!!!!!! YOU ARE MY NEW FAV!!

Go Brandy!! It's so funny that those "girls" are stuck in middle school. You are the only real woman on that show. It's so funny, this show makes me so happy that I am not rich. I love being a real woman taking care of real problems. Taylor needs to remember that it's just a party... Not life and death. Those women have no clue about what it is to be a strong woman, who could care less about keeping up with the Jones'. You go Girl!!!

PS. Since I've met you, I don't like Leann Rimes! LOL

Brandi Please stop trying to get along with Kim and Kyle. You have apologized to them too many times. Please keep moving on and be positive. I have learned everyone is not meant to be friends.

Sometimes it can be hell trying to fit in w/a new set of friends. I feel for you, so I'm going give you a tip: STAND TALL! You can tell when a person is uncomfy with their height.They slouch their shoulders to fit in with groups of average height. They are also an easy target because it's obvious they don't feel good about being so tall. You don't seem to have that problem,though! You should've SEEN all the ladies' faces drop on the floor when they 1st laid eyes on you! The first comment was,"...........she's tall........". They were totally deflated by your stature! They looked like they'd already lost the game! Standing tall suggests that you are very confident and happy with who you are. And girl, NOBODY in their right mind wants to piss of someone who looks like she could squash them like bugs! Those women will want to think twice before they mouth off to you.

Guess you now wish you stayed away from that birthday party too. Not that I blame you. Hope Kim shows some maturity soon. I really like her, but not her behavior towards you. Well, I hope things get better between you two. Hang in there. Would love to see you more in the show.

loved your take on the birthday song sung by ace to a 5 year old with a drink in his hand. it was a bit odd to say the least.

Brandi, I feel for you. The girls acted horrible from the beginning. I think you speak the truth and what most people are thinking. I'm not offended by your colorful language or talk of sex. But I do not like that you put yourself down. Don't do that anymore. Regarding your ex, don't let that get you down. What upsets you now, won't matter six months from now. And as for relationships, your ex and his new wife might last as long as your relationship lasted. Let it go. Focus on being a beautiful mother, friend, daughter, sister whatever you to whomever you have in your life. PS Don't apologize to Kim, she has enough enablers she does not need one more.

Brandy, I just want to tell you to keep your chin up. Hated what the girls did to you. You may not be filtered, but you are real. Don't know why you want to subject yourself to such people, when it's obvious, that you are not cut from the same clothe. Sorry about what you are going through with the x. What goes around comes around. If Leigh Ann was willing to cheat with him, who's to say she won't do it to him. Or vise versa. You are very pretty and I would have to say better off without him. Please remember that God put a beautiful person on this earth and don't let anyone make you feel less. The others ate jealous because you have something they don't. Youth. Who is Kyle to call you a slut, when her best friend posed nude for playboy. Really wished you wouldn't had called yourself that. No matter what mistakes you may have made, slut is pretty harsh. Love how you took up for your children. It's very obvious that the love you have for them makes you a good mother. They will be there for you long after the rest of this stupidness in life will be. Hope they never hear you put yourself down.

I hope Kim has given you an apology. She was mean to you at game night. Yes, she was acting like a woman on crack...there I said it.

You seem to be the only one w/ any common sense , you and Camille!!! Good for the both of you.

It takes a bigger person to say I'm sorry and you did it. Kim is a child, so hold your head high. Good things will come your way.

Brandi, very classy and kind of you to attempt to make amends with Kim/Kyle. You have done what you can. I enjoy you very much, hope that the show gives you more time. Update us on your ankle.

I have no idea why anyone would give a 5 year old a big horse. Give her a pony, and let her get a year or two older.

Hi Brandie I think you defended youself very well,good for you!!!but I don't think you should try to be friends with Kyle or Kim. Good luck!!!

Brandi, I am proud of you for offering an olive branch to Kim. Kim's ungraciousness was due to she so narcissistic that she cannot own up to her own rude and inappropriate comments that night. I wish the other women would stand up to her and call her out on it.

I thought your porn star sex ed party suggestion to Kyle was hilarious. Unfortunately, these women take themselves too seriously to see the humor in it and just go for it.

I hope we see more of you on the show.

You are too real for Beverly Hills...They don't know what to do with someone like you. Dana is soooooo fake its disgusting to watch her. Hope you stay on the show, Kim is immature in how she deals with things-not just you, so quit worrying about it and keep on moving. You've made it this far without her as a friend or acquaintance, haven't you. So quit sweating her neurotic self.

Brandi, good to see you on the last episode. Kim is not all there and obviously very immature. Don't worry about what she thinks. When you said 'hi' to her she acted so dumb. Just ignore her. I try, but she is on the show.

I miss you on the show! I can't wait to see more of you in the episodes to come. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they make you a permanent housewife of Beverly Hills for next season. I would love to see more of you and your precious little boys. Thank you for being so authentic, it's a rare quality in famous people. Most are so concerned with what everyone else thinks about them. Don't change a thing about yourself, you are an inspiration. And, BTW, the shorts you were wearing on Game Night are cute (you were right about that). The fact that there was some kind of issue about the time of year it was strikes me as hilarious considering that you are in Beverly Hills. Anyone who thinks winter in So. Cal. is cold needs to travel a bit more.

Brandi--you were treated unfairly from the first episode you were in. You have every reason to feel that 'it's not all your fault' since it's simply not! The other girls were mean and catty to you from the start. Kyle and Kim being the worst. That is quite obvious to any objective observer. Paul's initial take on the matter hit the nail on the head--while the other ladies are far from homely, you and Adrienne are the prettiest girls on the show, so that's probably where the hostility comes from. Hang in there--you seem to be beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. Don't let the jealousy of the others get to you.

Sorry you were not on show this week, can you update us on how your ankle is doing? hope it is well. Enjoyed seeing your boys and the going potty on the lawn is normal for little kids. They made too much of it. You were on TV and on crutches, if you wanted to talk to him about it later, speak later. Why make a big event of it on camera. Jenna

Brandi,

I wish they had you on the show more! You seem like a straight shooter, right to the heart of the matter. I gotta say though, if you've seen the prior episodes now, you can see why Taylor did not want Lisa there...she can be quite a poser, Taylor didn't need that...nor another reminder that Russell emailed her! Good grief, why didn't she just call or email Russell back instead of bothering Taylor with it? Anyway, looking forward to seeing you on future episodes!

Although, I did not like some of the vulgar statements that came out of your mouth....no way in HELL would I have apologized to Kim. She was rude! Good thing you don't like tea, but I imagine you and Lisa may become friends. You are both bold and outgoing women who say things to people in their face instead of behind their back.

Hang in there. Kyle and Kim should apologize to you, they certainly have issues they need to deal with instead of trying to start in on everyone else. Good Luck! keeping your cool will help you.

Brandi, you weren't at the tea party. Are you saying you were invited and chose not to go because of gossip?

Taylor has no class for showing up at Lisa's tea party and verbally attacking the hostess. And, frankly, if someone was trying so hard to be my friend, like that, I'd be put off, too. Too phony. She definitely needs pysch help.

Brandi, stand you ground. I never comment on these shower, but I had to track you down and tell you that Kim and Kyle are so wrong in the way they are treating you. You can have money, but it can't by you class. The act like Jr High kids.

Brandi, as the new girl I have seen the inital reaction to new girls on the show. Do not EVER let someone make you feel LESS THAN you are - cause strenght is in your self confidence and conviction for what is right. Stay strong girl love Trina

I like you. Just keep doing you. This is easier said than done because there is a tendency for people to start perpetrating the nastiness that has been done to them (Taylor with Lisa, Kim with you). But, if you can resist what, in Beverly Hills, appears to be an overwhelming impulse towards nastiness, you will survive with your integrity intact. Just do what Adrienne does. God love that woman!

If I was Taylor I wouldn't invite either...being that the event was something close to her heart. her and Lisa weren't on good terms She probably didn't want to feel anymore tension with already having the tension of her husband!!
