Brandi Glanville

Brandi laments her and Lisa's room assignment and explains how this episode sets up the drama of the season.

on Nov 26, 20120

This episode is about to kick off what is set to be a bumpy ride to the end of the season for me. It starts out innocently enough with a much overdue, yet uncomfortable, apology from Adrienne to Lisa. Of course, Adrienne thinks she is still owed an apology, which is just ridiculous.

I had just gotten back from a whirlwind trip to NYC for book meetings with my "gaygent" Michael Broussard. It was so amazing to go into these meetings and feel important and grown up. Michael came over to talk about our possible publishing offers, and I am just in awe of the fact that any of this is even happening to me.

During this time, I have really been looking to get back into working mode and had a lot to figure out. Lisa suggested I shoot with a magazine that she writes for called Beverly Hills Lifestyle. At first I didn't want to do it because I can be very self critical and really hate the way I look in photos -- but she convinced me that it could lead to something bigger for me. So I did it, and had a blast doing so. In the early '90s you would never get to see the pictures before they came out in the magazines, and now you see them immediately. It can be both good and bad.

After the shoot we head to Ojai for Kim's trip, which we were arriving late to. When we arrived we were given our room assignment and basically we were put in the kids' room over the garage and disconnected from the main house. But it gave Lisa and I some good bonding time.

From an angry old white man to Brandi; There's something about you that makes me want to be a better man.Rooting for you, maybe it's because you're the underdog, or the most beautiful in the room, or the lost real.Or maybe it's you're just a decent person.Get some good people behind you. Good luck.

You are such a warm hearted person and you stand by your friends to the death. I know that you and Kyle had such a beautiful moment and well deserved until Adrienne butted her huge nose into it! I didn't blame you for your Fbomb cuz she deserved it. If she isn't meddling what purpose would she have on the show? That being said, you are really holding your own with all of these women on show. Keep your head up and the truth flowing and it will all be good. Love you always!!!!

Don't take it to heart! Keep seeing Lisa and Yolanda and Camille. The rest of them are just backstabbers and liars! Taylor is just plain horrible this season! Adrienne is a manipulator, and Kyle is so very immature! She is also a "fence sitter"! Kim, I haven't made up my mind about yet! I love your spunk and I would be proud of you! You go girl, your doing just fine!

Anyone remember last seasons reunion? Where Kyle said something to the effect of playing chess with Bobby Fisher when dealing with Lisa?  Don't get me wrong, I like Lisa, but it seems to me Brandi is following the 'mean girls' attitude toward Adrienne ONLY because Lisa is in a "fight" with her.  Just goes to show, you can 'grow' your money, but some people never 'grow' up.

BRANDI, Thank you for being a breath of fresh air on RHOBH.  You speak the truth %100 of the time and don't save face for the camera.  Thank you, thank you!!  Don't get beat down girl, keep being who you are!!!!!!

I freakin loved that you told Adrienne to STFU! Because she sounded like a winey child asking for attention and to stir the pot. Kim is capable of dealing with whatever you two were discussing with out a call to attention to put you in a bad light. Stay above Adrienne and don't engage in tit for tat with her. She will lash out at you in place of her other issues and you need to concentrate on you. Continue the fight to move upward and beyond the "Hollywood" drama & people. Find strong independent women who will keep you out of stupid drama.

Love you Brandi. You and Lisa. Don't let those other women beat you down into what they are. You're beautiful and you speak the truth. I hope you and Lisa remain friends. She's a great person to have in your corner and you deserve someone in your corner.

Brandi, I think you are one of the best in BH!  You are honest, refreshing and I adore your relationship with Lisa.  I really appreciate your candor and lack of desire to censor your immediate reactions.  It is honest and while it can lead to trouble, it is far better than gossiping about matters later and behind backs.

 

Congrats on your book deal and finding your way.

Yes, Brandi. I also adore you. However, you need to think before you speak.  You allowed Adrienne to be the victim.  Although both you and Adrienne knew what she was doing (making it appear that you were victimizing Kim), the rest of the group may not have.  So, when you said STFU, it looked like you were on the attack, with no provocation.  It might have been better to point out Adrienne's intentional dig with better words

Hey other viewers! What was Brandi talking about with twitter? What did Paul and Adrienne want Brandi to take back and correct on twitter????

Hey Brandi,

just wanted to say that the entire time Adrienne was calling out Kim's crying I was even saying to my TV "shut the fuck up adrienne". So I was happy when you actually did. You were right. If she ws worried about Kim she would have asked her if she was okay not making it seem like its a big deal and embarrassing both of you for having a real conversation. What an asshole. Love you beauty, keep keeping it real with lots of these fake women.

Quick 'F word' story... a few years ago a dear friend of mine lost her 18 year old daughter in a car accident due to drunk driving. There aren't words when something like that happens, and to get through the services she and her brother kept a running list of things people would say as they walked through. (People say strange things when they're uncomfortable and at a loss.) It was something else to focus on. A woman she worked with walked right up to her, wrapped her arms around her, squeezed tight, and said, and I quote, "FUUUUUU$k" It was exactly what she needed to hear, exactly what she was feeling. Sometimes you need someone to say what's not appropriate. Sometimes.... nothing but the 'F word' fits.

Brandi...I must admit that I didn't like you last year but now love you. You were obviously pushed into the fire last year and had to get them over the fact that the ladies were jealous of you and get  yourself in as part of the ladies... I also didn't like Camille at first but now love her, too, and wish she was a permanent HW now. You are so funny, pretty and tell it like it is...just like Lisa...who I also love. You and Lisa together as friends is perfect. you both are so much fun. Keep being you..  Luv you Brandi!!

Keep on keeping on Brandi! I hope that you have much success with your book and with all aspects of your life. You are honest and I find that refreshingly wonderful especially when you spend so much time with liars! You walked into a snake pit with these horrible BH women, I think you will handle them just fine! <3 They are jealous of you and that is clear.

I am with you all the way!  I like the other girls, but I really hate when people act like they are offended with your choice of words.  I personally call myself senorita potty mouth and the C word is the best.  As any mature adult there is a time and a place to not use curse words, and with your girlfriend is not one of them.  I can't wait to read your book and I think you come off so strong that most people don't realize how bad things hurt you, I have the same problem.  Just because we don't go around fishing for everyone to feel bad for us and unless it is relivent don't talk about our bull-sh--!  Are you with me, I think you are similar to me in that way.  People just kind just stop checking on us and assume we don't need them becasue we don't ask for it.  Everyone around me using me as there personal therapist so I am so over talking my stuff gets pushed a lot.  I use to feel bad about it, but now I like keeping most things close to me.  I don't think most people would understand anyway so it's better in the long run.  I'm just saying this incase you feel like that sometimes, your not alone.  Just think of it as we have evolved .

Brandi is an iodit, she needs to find a book on how not to behave like a wild dog. Is she still on drugs because the way she acts sure seems like it, short tempered, abrasive and lack of any common sense. I can see why Eddie hurried up and got out of that marriage, living with her would cause any man to jump over a bridge. Get rid of Brandi, she adds nothing to the show. BTW, Lisa is using this chick as a her mouth piece, Lisa's antics are clear, too bad everyone else doesn't see her deviant ways.

Good for you!! You don't let them push you around and always stand up for what you think is right. Their temper has gotten the best of them so all the ladies need to STFU so keep on doing what you're doing. :)

Inappropriate or not, we all feel annoyed by Adrienne...

Brandi...I was out-voted earlier tonight when wanting to watch (the new episode) RHWBH. So I headed upstairs with my dog in tow...& closed the door behind me. Shortly after it began I found myself completely immersed, cheering you on...yelling "you go girl" and laughing at your quick witted, candid animated responses. Before long, everybody (kids-all in HS/college+more dogs) had worked their way up and plopped themselves on my bed. (I'm a single mom too). The young men appeared to be seduced by you, the young women fascinated. RHWBH has a whole new household of fans...thanks to you! As I scanned the room tonight everyone had smiles on their faces. It looked clearly unanimous. Even the dogs were drooling...the whole family wants Brandi on our team!

I think I could hear the whole country laughing when you said Adrienne and Paul tried to intimidate you to tweet something on their behalf. I'm sure she had been worrying about you revealing that the whole season! Hilarious and not surprising. The majority of the viewers also had to love it when you told Adrienne to shut up. I think you said it for all of us! Interesting that you noted that she's not very smart. I've repeatedly questioned her intelligence. She's clearly so jealous of Lisa but handles it so poorly. Her arguments and complaints are so ignorant it leaves her looking like a total fool. I really enjoy you. You're a doll and super fun to watch. I'm sure the future holds wonderful things for you and YOUR boys! :)

You have really got it in for Adrienne haven't you? All those snide remarks during the taped confessionals, you're just looking for a fight - last season, Kyle, Kim and Taylor were so terrible to you, but you seem ready to move on with them, but not Adrienne.  Not that you care, but I really cannot figure you out. I liked how you reached out to Kim, I love your relationship with Liza, but all this bitchiness with Adrienne is just a little too much. Of course I know I am in the minority - all this love for you just reminds me of the love for Kyle in the first season and look how that's turned. Well I guess every season needs its villain and its victims and Adrienne is the villian. Glad its working out well for you. All the best for your book!

Wow, you are great! I can't believe the things they get upset with you over....it doesn't make sense to me. Are you the only *real* gal on the show?

 

I would never survive in BH, I drop the F bomb a bit too often... ;)

Girl you really a CLASSLESS! and need some serious help like Taylor. You accused Kim of being on "crystal meth" but honey... you're on the same track... remember how embarrassing you were in Hawaii admitting you had popped some pills and drinking alcohol and now admitting to  Kim you drink and pop pills. No wonder Eddie left your crazy ass... poor guy. You would be so much more like-able if you weren't so EVIL.  You're not a nice person. CHANGE your attitude girl...

I think your great. I actually think you were more supportive of kim even more than Kyle.

Kyle never stands up for sister so its nice that at least one person was n her side.

 

julie86@uga.edu

Clearly, I must be missing something that people actually like you and think you are genuine....you are the most envious person of people's success... you want everyone to be as miserable as you are, always putting people down negative comments..."Kim, everyone wants you to fail" ya you are probably right, her sister Kyle, who clearly spent more time worrying about her sister than anyone else in her family. People might think Kyle was mean to her sister..... obviously people who either do not suffer from the disease or have not personally been impacted by it.....it takes a TREMENDOUS toll on loved ones/family, why it's considered a FAMILY DISEASE!!!!!!!! For anyone watching thinking Kyle was mad at her sister, I can imagine, I know how much of my family's time I stole while they stayed up all night worrying about whether they were going to get a call about me being dead or not. I can ASSURE you Brandi, not everyone wants Kim to fail. I could care less about the fact that you used the F work (kind of ridiculous people freaked out about it), but woman you make EVERYTHING about you, YOU ARE ALWAYS SOME LITTLE VICTIM WHO EVERYONE WAS MEAN TO... you have got to be kidding! If you weren't rude, negative, or tried to bring WOMEN DOWN ALL THE TIME, no one would be rude to you. I'm happy that you wrote a book, but please, the majority of marriages now end in divorce, and you had the AUDACITY to put someone like Taylor (who I don't even like) down.... Girl open up your eyes...you are your own worst enemy, the only reason you are miserable. You seem so depressed all the time, and honestly you are sooooooo blessed in so many ways (we all have problems I realize) but those who try to practice gratitude in their lives tend to be much happier, your negativity is because of a poor attiude and this victim role. You almost make me laugh sometimes, oh gosh I have a wrinkle on my thumb, baby girl no one has been convinced you have low self esteem (your actions prove otherwise), Adrien is so stupid (yup stupidity is what is required to run a multi million dollar business. No one attacks you Brandi, you are not a victim, no matter how hard you try to be. Please someone tell me how Brandi isn't materialistic? Not phony? Not trying to be a victim 24/7. WHAT?!?!

BRANDI, you are gorgeous in your photo shoot and a pretty gal...but what kind of power do you get in dropping "F" bombs on TV?! You need to ask your BFF Gennifer for some coping skills to control your emotions....you should strongly consider not speaking with such vulgarity...voicing negativity only "attracts" negative outcomes. Make that change girl....

 Brandi!  I really like you alot but I hate your mouth!!  You need to get Lisa to teach you a little class!!  You NEVER tell someone to shut the F up!  I don't care where or who you are with!  That's just trailer trash.  You are coming soo far to shoot yourself in the ass!!  You have issues with Ariadne and need to solve them but NOT on TV!!  I'm glad about your book but you have to understand how Taylor feels especially how you dogged her on the reunion about her book!!! What comes around!!!  Remember what comes around girl!!  I think you would do better to take each girl a side and resolve any issues!  You can cause enough drama normally.  lol. I do like your honesty but hate your foul mouth!  Please, you have too much class to let your mouth drag you down!!!  Don't let E & L win by being classless.  Watch your mouth... please.  Enough already with the F word.  That's for tweens and you are too old for that!

Hey Brandi, I'm happy for your success. I will get your book when it comes out. Your right the book you are writing is years after the fact. However, keep strong because you have Lisa, Yolanda on your side. I also love the way you and kim were getting along before you were rudley interrupted by Andrienne, trying to make something out of nothing.!

Brandi you are a riot, love you girl! You bring much needed levity to this dusty old cast. Lisa has chosen you as a friend and I can see why. Follow Lisa's lead for a bit of time and you will conquer and persevere. I think you will come to see that your ex will fail with his relationship with the mentally unstable new wife and you will live well, which is THE best revenge. I wish you well!!!

I haven't been a fan in the past but seeing how humble and kind you were with Kim was very nice.  My impression is that you had your armor on the last season, which I can understand.  I hope we continue to see a softer, nicer side of you.

I noticed Kyle never once went to see about her sister that she cares so much about, and wanted to leave the table because she was embarrassed.. No one left the party at Mohamed's when she was on the table doing splits which WAS embarrassing to watch.  Kyle then bullied Lisa to agree with her. Brandi you gave an explanation to what the STFU meant good call.  Hold your head high and the rest will have to look up to you.

Brandi you are my favorite on RHOBH! Finally a breath of fresh air instead of all of these condescending two faced idiots on here. You & Lisa are the only cast members who are "real". You don't cry on cue as the rest of the cast members do each episode. Let the other women fight for each others attention, sympathy & BFF status as they've done for many seasons. Remain true to who you are. That's why you're our favorite. You are honest & you have a good heart. Keep speaking your mind & don't let anyone push you around. They are all so jealous! You have the most beautiful skin. Please let us know!!! Class isn't about putting others down to make yourself look good as everyone has done except Brandi & Lisa. You never hear them trash talking other cast members or picking. Cussing doesn't make you classless dear. Those goofy Richards girls & that Taylor (aka Shana) now thats CLASSLESS!

brandy; you have become my favorite housewife im sorry camille appears to have left; i learned to like her; ms. kim richards is a pain; dont like victims myself...enuf already; like lisa but the rest of them.......    i think you need to acquire strength either by therapy or friendships with people who support you.  maybe try a form of meditation??? just sayi' its a powerful tool for getting thru a day.   mean time you are beautiful and basically kind and dont let turkeys get you down.....hang in with lisa and ken; they like u.   watch your F/Bombs and have fun......you have what it takes!!!!!!!!!!

@christuhh1 You obviously don't get much, then, because Brandi is THE woman on this show!! Viewers are crazy about her, Andy Cohen loves her, and she, along with Lisa, is the most popular housewife on this series. Where have you been? Brandi is real; she's funny, a lot of fun, vulnerable, gorgeous, and not afraid of the mean girls. Do you even read the blogs on this site? Brandi is the bomb!

She is more popular than Kyle, Taylor, and Adrienne. People like her because she is real...the mosy unphony of the bunch. Every one of these franchises needs a Brandi...a non-ass-kisser who tells it like it is!   Go Brandi!

What are you talking about?  She's great friends with Lisa, Camille and Yolanda - further.... *SURPRISE* she and Kim are very friendly as well. She's become the second most popular housewife on the show (based on the polls) and further, her amount of Twitter followers is growing at a faster rate than any of the BH housewives.

 LOL, any dummy can read the blogs and figure out for themselves how popular Brandi is.  Guess you missed THAT memo.  I mean, did you just write that without reading the thousands of posts on her blogs of people saying how much they love her, or did you read them all and toss out your paragraph thinking it would change everyone's mind?  HAHAHA..........thanks for the laughs!

 @christuhh1 The viewers love her. They did a 'Who's Your Favorite Housewife' poll on WWHL at the end of last season and Brandi came second to Lisa despite only being a 'friend of the housewives' at the time. Adrienne and Taylor didn't even make the double digits percentage wise.
