First I would like to apologize for missing my blog last week and address a few of last week's issues.
While I appreciate Mauricio's apology, it was a personal attack and a half-hearted "I'm sorry. It
wasn't personal that's just how I personally feel" were his actual words. Contradict yourself much?
On to Marissa. I was in no way trying to take a dig at her when I said I thought she was hard on Dean. I actually really like Marissa and Dean a lot. I just don't think she realizes that she is saying these things to a national audience and that they never ever go away. They are forever chronicled.
My parents got married at 19 years old and had three children back to back-to-back. My mother has been with one man her entire life, and I'm sure has thoughts about the things she missed out on.
However I know she would never say a negative thing about my father and especially not about my father on television. My parents have been happily married for over 40 years now, but not without a few hiccups on their journey. I wish and hope the same long-term love and joy for Dean and Marissa.
Vegas! I invited all the girls to come help me prepare for a new hosting gig I have. It's a trial run and thought it would be a fun time and something we all really needed after all the dinner parties from hell.
I have seen people like you who think no matter what you say or do is alright. Were you never taught manners? You cling to the people you know feel sorry for people easily ( enter Lisa who because she is a easy mark only because she is a good person and coming from the UK you are bred to be hospitable to all and take the new person under your wing. I don't think Lisa understands that it still stands that those who you surround yourself with can hurt you, I pray that Lisa sends Brandi on her way before Lisa gets hurt), you also jump at the chance to cling to husbands Ken and now Adreannes husband. WHAT !! after the things you said about him you see dollar signs. I can see why you are divorced, what I can't understand is why Bravo allows you to continue on the show. You have taken the fun out of watching the show from the first day you came on scene. I just can't write anymore about you it gives me a headache.
Beverly Hills Housewives was the most interesting before Brandi and Yolanda came on. Now it is all catty and become trashy as much as the Atlanta gals and the others.
Lisa please Kyle loves you and you do need people in your life that love. Kyle may not always be there to stick up for you but you are fully capable to do this for yourself it is in your blood I know I come from Wales and am and easy mark as well but I can tell it like it is when necessary. I can also talk to my friends and let them know if I felt hurt by them, but I don't hold grudges once it is out. You have been with Kyle for so long and I see sister love there. Give it up as well as Brandi. You are a softy think about the last lost dog you took in and the hurt it caused you. Brandi is the same as him.
Brandi, people marry for so many reasons and they divorce for many more reasons. Marriage to some is trial and error and to others it's forever. My husband and I have been married for 35 years with bumps in the road but we always worked things out. Maybe marriage isn't for you right now. Don't push it, just wait for it to happen. You will get a lot of haters but remember only you know what your life will be like. Some people are envious of you while others are jealous. Keep your chin up and continue with your life and make your own decisions.
Really you won't say anything about your ex? Ha. Nobody need feel sorry for you. I feel for your kids. You decided to marry and have children with a man you were cheating WITH. What did you expect? Mean girl is what you are.
Hey Bran you are by far my fav...Kyle should not be trust. Continue to be true to yourself and keep the bullies very far...can't wait to see tonight's episode..much luv..xx
Don't listen to the haters. You are my favorite and many that I know say you have saved the franchise. I do love Lisa as well. You have heart and engage the audience in every episode. We care about you and hope your book sells well. I bought a copy for me and one for a dear friend of mine that likes you as well. My best to you now and always. You are beautiful and lovely inside as well as outside.
Brandi, I've never liked you or trusted you. The things that come out of your mouth are so filthy, you act like a child and wanna be social lite. "Money doesn't buy you class it just buys you money"... That has to be one of the stupidest things I've heard coming from someone like you.. you have no class at all. Why you are on this show is a mystery to me.
Brandi is good at starting trouble and letting someone else notably mommy Lisa or daddy Ken bail her out. Why is she so upset with Adrienne? She just wants La lisa to like her and include her in her world. But the second she stops being lisa's little snitch lisa will be through with her. Why is everyone else lying and only sweet little misunderstood snow white brandy telling the truth ? Think about she just wants brownie points from lisa. Grow up and be your own person and not a pawn in the big girls world.
when brandi was talking with eddie's jumpoff serena she told her that she (serena) was number four out of a hundred. so brandi knew eddie was a cheat and she chose to stay. so why is she so mad at lee ann oh is it because he chose to wife her.
Are you honestly saying you were just watching out for Marisa because she might not realize her comments would be on national tv and could not be taken back? Coming from you, that's rich! And your last blog was really out of line when you put Marisa down. She may be a wild woman in the sack. You don't know. Just because she didn't like to perform on a pole doesn't mean she's repressed, just a private person. Stop judging other people if you don't want them to judge you.
Honestly dude, i can't wait to buy your book. I've been with the same guy for 10 years and we have 2 small kids and my worse fear is losing my family and having some other women come into the picture! I think it's awesome how you keep it together and your honest about it.I really feel for you because only having your children half of the time must be so painful, but your inspiring to women going through this and it's not un-noticed. honestly I see a lot of phony love with Eddie and Leann,..it's so obvious in there photo ops..lol YVR CAN
does brandi NOT get spousal and child support and what about her bravo checks. sure she does not have the money the others have but why is she always cryin broke
Not much her douchebag of an ex married Leann for her money and he's surely not going to spend it on his kids , only what the courts require and they base it on his income not Leanns and have you seen him do any acting recently? nothing
Maya2 yvonnegraham gogo17 LeAnn bought Eddie the best attorney. As the saying goes, "It's not about right or wrong, it's about he who has the best attorney."
WTH is wrong with brandi. is she so jealous of adrienne that now she has taken once again, at another dinner party to talk about adrienne not owning the palms. this is something the ladies already knew. i hope adrienne sues her down to her last nasty penny
yvonnegraham: I hope Adrienne continues to simply ignore this silly fool of a woman. I am soooooo sick of Lisa and Brandi trying to start trouble every time the women get together. Evidently, the other wives are also fed up. For Brandi to even try to force Camille into backing up her lies was just sickening.......and it was scripted and brought up by the ever devious backbiting Lisa. Gad....move on Lisa & Brandi. And I repeat.....Adrienne should just continue to be her classy, beautiful self and ignore.
u are right. how long is lisa gonna be mad at adrienne. the argument happened at last years reunion and didnt they sit down and have a drink together and make up. brandi needs to have several seats. i bet lisa is paying her lawyers
Brandi you are stronger than anyone even you realize. Eddie is weak and pitiful and you deserve better than a serial cheater. As for Eddie's new wife feel sorry for her because it is a well known fact that if a man will do it with you he will do it to you. She is in for a world of hurt as soon as someone with a little more money and more power in Hollywood comes along. Until then he will do what he has always done. ( Anyone that will turn down the covers or part the bushes) Mauricio is worried about all the negative feedback he has gotten. Love your moxie girl!!!!!!
Rosiemalta Oh please. Brandi is plenty smart enough to know if she's being manipulated. She knew when adrienne tried to manipulate her & refused to be any part of it.
Love Brandi! I'll tell you another thing that you will always have.. The fact that Eddie married you for LOVE, and not MONEY! Leann will never know if he married her for her fame & money. He was a struggling actor, and they will do anything to get ahead. Or have enough money to not have to beg for parts! Your way more facinating then both of them put together. Noone likes a women that breaks up a marriage. She knew, and once a cheater well if Julia Roberts came along said she would marry him.. he'd leave Leann in a heartbeat. Your more famous then he ever was. You go Brandi!!!
Masterofpuppets1 ccwriter I got it this morning on Kindle. Almost finished. It's a cute, fun read. Very much from the heart.
Maybe it’s her statuesque frame but Brandi pulls off what she jokingly refers to as “hoochie” clothing and makes it look chic and youthful…. In the same styles, however, the new Mrs. Cibrian just looks like a hoochie.
I couldn't imagine the betrayal you felt. But accept LeAnn for who she is. A very sad someone who can't live her life without you on her mind. No matter how much she claims "her boys" she knows they came from you. That is one thing she can't take away from you.
You are free of the cheater. Know everytime LeAnn is apart from Eddie she wonders if he is cheating. She's trapped in her own mind. Stop giving her something else to focus on. As long as she has a fued going with you, she doesn't have to think about what Eddie is doing.
Let her live in the shameful pride she slept with someone's husband while she herself was married. As long as you keep talking about her you make her relevant and you make her life more real. Leave her alone to live in her own world. Tweeting to reassure herself she has a good life.
dovemeanspeace I'm no Leann fan but the new US Weekly has alot to say about the "cheating".
yup not lookin good for you brandi. i know u read the article cause you responded to it
It is clear that there are people who are just trying to push your buttons. Don't fall for it.
Brandi, Love you. You are one of the real women on the show.Some are just posing for the camera,thats why there movie careers are over. As far as Leann she looks like a frog.Remember they go out the same way they come in.Keep being true to you and you will find your path.
I love you and your honestly. I would just work on using the F word and how you deliver your comments. When you feel that someone is attacking you, you can ask: Where you there? What does this have to do with you? Im not, you. Im sorry you feel that way but this is not your concern and I would appreciate it if you mind your own business. Do I involve myself in your life? Good luck. I will be rooting for you.
I swore never to be silent
whenever and wherever
human beings endure
suffering and humiliation.
We must always take sides.
Neutrality helps the oppressor,
never the victim.
Silence encourages the the tormentor,
never the tormented....
Dealing with a traumatic betrayal by your ex & his mistresses must've been a nightmare. No one can know that pain unless they have walked in your shoes. Nice to see that you finally have a voice after so many years of being taunted & harassed by LR & her supporters. Your brutal honesty may be scary for others but it has to be told with your voice. Don't let anyone take that away from, that takes great courage. Mama bear taking care of business.
Brandi love your honesty!!!! I hope you stay true to who you are, and I hope you remain a loyal friend!!!!
Brandi, you bring life to the show! For all those that say "let it go" regarding her ex & his downgrade; Brandi's made it clear that after the book tour she's done commenting on them. She is doing publicity for her book, purpose is to sell the book thus report truth to get people interested. No one knows about the torment & stalking LR put her through. It's one thing to go through a divorce; then to have LR & her twitter minions on constant attack had to be unbearable. That being said, give her the next few weeks for her chance to tell the truth. Buy the book & I'm sure some of you " let it go" commenter's may understand.
I am guessing Camille will be starting WWIII?
I can imagine Lisa doesn't like the word vagina. Sounds like gynecologist's office, not seductive, huh?
Hope your book sells like hotcakes. I know you strive for (you already have?) complete financial independence and would like to provide the best for your young sons. Who doesn't want that?
I wonder who will get on the pole this coming Monday night!
JuliefromTexasI agree with Lisa. I don't like the word 'vagina.' The word sounds so pretty in Italian. One word for vagina in Italia is 'figa.'' Buona figa,' sounds so much prettier don't you agree?
I hope you read your comments as Lisa and YoYo read theirs. Fans are very important.
Everyone goes through tough times in life. A part of coming through those times a better,stronger, and more mature person is realizing where you are responsible for your actions. No matter how much someone hurts you, you must take responsibility for your part in the situation. With Eddie, Adrienne, ex-friends-lovers-whatever.
I went through a very similiar situation in which the man I loved left me while I was carrying his child. I bad-mouthed him to anyone who listened, developed a hostile attitude, and went through years of expensve court battles. One day a light bulb went off and I thought back to when we first began dating, through our years together all the way to present day. Our son is now five. I was not a perfect person through those years but he never pointed fingers. People make bad decisions, ALL people.
Brandi, went to Barnes & Noble tonight to get your new book. They said it will be there on 2/12. Want to let you know that I am gettin a copy. You are an inspiration to many people Brandi and you should be proud of yourself and how you have gotten where you are. You have to go through it, not around it. I have been there Brandi. Funny how if we only had a crystal ball that could have told us how things would turn out, but then we wouldn't be who we are now. Everyone always thinks the cheating is the worst part. They don't know. No doubt your boys are proud of you and always will be. I have always maintained this...I would rather be the one who this was done to rather then the one who did it.
Brandi, your book has moved into the top #100 of Amazon's best seller and it has not even been released yet. Meanwhile, Taylor has moved to #43,000 and Kyle at #70,000 and we still have not seen Adrienne's
@Corkytx, today she's #90 & moving up, up, up. The public wants honesty & Brandi delivers. I hope she finds true love with someone who really cares about her.
You and LeeAnn need to shut up!! Don't get me wrong, I do like you but at your age you should know when to be quiet and let it go. Also, please stop bringing up people's personal, private matters in front of everyone. I don't care how angry you are or if you like Adrienne or not, it's inexcusable.
marc823 if you don't want to watch people reveal personal and scandalous information, then stop watching the reality show.
marc823 Kyle is constantly saying negative things about her own sister on national TV. Adrienne says negative things about Lisa. Faye said negative things about several housewives. BUT - Brandi should shut up and not say anything about anyone? An affair with a huge country singer is a very public affair. This particular mistress has zero remorse. She's unrepentant. She actually has the audacity to taunt and attack the woman whose husband she slept with! One would think she'd want to crawl under a rock until she's 50 and keep the lowest profile, enduring whatever attacks come her way because, after all, she kind of deserves it! But, not Leann Rimes! She has to go on her soapbox (twitter) to let the world know she slept with Brandi's man, enjoyed it, and is now enjoying Brandi's man as his wife and enjoying her kids at her home too! Check out Twitter and you would be shocked at how many jabs she makes at Brandi. One would think a huge country star has better things to do with her time which leads many to wonder if Leann truly does have a psychological problem. So to ask Brandi to shut up while enduring public humiliation is, I think a bit too much to ask of any one.
ITA - E & L hadn't been married a year before Leann did a stint in rehab. Can you imagine that your children's stepom (who bashes YOU constantly) is NEEDING rehab WHILE taking care of YOUR children?
Sofie_pie2 marc823 "Huge country singer?" Leann hasn't been that huge (except in her mouth, waist, nostrils, etc) for a very long time. She's a washed up former childhood flared nostril yodeler. She can't yodel like she use to. It's been years. I didnt even know what Leann had done until I read some horrible blogs about her on Shape magazine after Leann posed on the front cover(in a bikini GAG) and said and I quote, she" found great comfort exercising with Eddie after the desolation of her marriage. I was floored at the audacity of this former yodeler. Yea after that, I took great interest in the story, and wanted to find out more about Brandi and how she was holding up. Go Brandi!!
socialbutterfly908 Sofie_pie2 marc823 I totally keep forgetting leann is a country singer...she has actually hurt her own credibility because i just remember her has a home wrecker, and a dirty one at that...
