Brandi Glanville

Brandi explains why she left Portia's party early -- and it's not because she's afraid of Taylor.

on Nov 15, 20120

When Taylor arrived seemingly drunk to a four years birthday party I had a good idea that s--- was gonna go down. So after hearing some of the things she was starting to talk about and also seeing her passive aggressively ignore me as she spoke to both of people sitting on either side of me, I decided to get gone.

Don’t get me wrong because I can handle Taylor and drama any day of the week but never ever like ever (Thank you Taylor Swift) in front of children. When kids are involved us grown up that sometimes act like children need to stick to acting grown up. So I skidaddled as quickly and quietly as possible.

I know Yolanda is getting a little bit of flack this week and I want to let you know first hand what a great woman and mother she is.I can see how some people might misconstrue Yolanda being a protective mom as to being a stage mom. But let me say that I have seen this incredibly strong woman with her family and she is the best mom ever and has the most wonderful, well rounded, un-entitled sweet children.

Until next week!

Brandi,

 

Please don't leave any social gathering in the future.  You are a better person than Taylor.  And at least Kim is getting help and realizes that she does have issues.  Taylor talking behind your back is nothing but a straight up jealous woman.  Hope that you and Kim can become friends and put your differences aside.  As for Taylor, she has to recognize she has issues before she can become friends with anyone else.

You took the high road! good for you!  I love you and your honesty and not pretending to be someone your not!  Keep doing what you are doing you will end up the favorite housewife!

Taylor is making a complete ass out of herself...feel sorry for her.

I totally agree with you on why not just donate the cost of airfare etc to the charity.  It was funny to watch, but think of what they spent on shoes!!!  All of that money could have housed how many families that are out of the house do to violence!!!! 

 

My bff and I watch  your show together all the time, and we both adore you.  You are so real, and honest and we love how you make no apologies for yourself.  We also love your relationship with Lisa.  It's great to see you connect with her and Ken.

Brandi, You are smart enough to know that unless they chartered a private jet, there was no way that Paul & Mauricio could have gotten to/from Sacramento & Beverly Hills to get back in time for Portia's birthday party. So quit with the petty jabs- that's Lisa's forte, not yours! You were right to leave Portia's party early- too much alcohol & too much drama don't mix- especially with young kids around. Kyle is a busy-body, she is addicted to others' drama & LOVES to stir-the-sh_t. She is VERY IMMATURE and can't help letting her insecurities drive her to try to ALWAYS be the center of attention. She can be very kind and generous. She seems to be a good mother too. But even though a part of her wants everyone to be "one big happy family" - her methods are WAY OFF THE MARK! Brandi, you really are so much better than Lisa. You are much smarter than her, much funnier, much kinder & more warm. She is bringing out the worst in you- really! She is using you to fight her fights and the more you both deny it, the more obvious it is. The way to stop people from thinking it and saying it, is for you to stop doing it! We all have enough of our own personal challenges without jumping into other people's dramas. Adrienne had initially NO issues with you - she went out of her way to be a good person to you- but now that you have jumped on Lisa's bandwagon and said ugly things, you caused problems that didn't initially exist. The only way to fix it, is to have a private one-on-one conversation with Adrienne, without cameras and be YOURSELF. You and Adrienne actually have much more in common than you think and could learn a lot from each other. For example, you could teach her to "let go & have more fun" and she could help you get more grounded. Your children could become good friends that would enrich their lives for the rest of their lives. Adrienne has MUCH MORE CONTACTS that can help you personally and professionally than Lisa could EVER HAVE.

I do wish that you were at the party. That Chris is very cute and talented.

I was watching the clip for next week when you are trying to talk to Kim and Adrienne jumps in and says something stupid about Kim crying.  I believe you told Adrienne to shut the f up.  OH MY GOSH>>> I LOVE YOU!!  Finally, someone tells that stupid buffoon to zip it.  You are my hero.  

You are a dear heart and I think you have been treated unfairly by Kyle, Taylor,  Kim and Adrienne.  Your goodness shines through making you a beautiful young woman and they are green with envy.

Well Brandy is right about Kyle. She seems to keep one foot in one door and the other outside of the door. Just commit Kyle. Speak up for something. Also Brandy was joking, but unfortunately  you have to watch what you say in public. Yolanda apparently lost something in the translation when she heard you say what you did not say.  As soon as you made the comment, I knew and I am sure Lisa could see that one taking on a life of its own.

 

I think if Yolanda were to get that day back she would have not said what she did around Taylor, because Taylor  likes to stir up the pot and will not let it go. You and Yolanda will have to shut her down, by not letting her comments get to you or telling her to stop making a joke into a major ordeal.

Brandi, really enjoying you in the group.  I like that you are keeping your chin up and not allowing yourself to be brought down by Taylor's behavior.  I get the impression you would get along fine with Taylor if she would just act like a grown up.

Yes, Brandi, you pay compliments to Paul and Mauricio and take it all back in the same snide way you use when claiming to "not understand why Kyle didn't just tell Adrienne the truth ..." You seem to forget that Adrienne apologized several times on air, but then you would because you don't want Lisa angry with you. Using your thinking on apologies, did you apologize to Taylor? Of course not.

Bravo, can't you tell by the comments that we are tuning in for Brandi and Lisa?  Why in God's name would you give us an episode full of Kim and Kyle and no Brandi?  Big disappointment!

You are great to watch. Funny, a bit raunchy and very down to earth. Glad you are part of the mix.

I'm glad to see you being the nice person I think you are-aside from being so much younger than the others on the show-I felt that a lot of the criticism was unnecessary and resulted because of jealousy and being the new kid on the block;they expected you to pay your dues. Being a scorpio you give off hidden power and unknown strength to others-This will be fact for your entire life,so when you know this I hope you realize "It is what it is" One good thing about your sign is that whatever friends you  let in your life;will always be loyal to you

Glad you didn't bale off the show.  I sit and watch the reruns of the reunions prior to the episode tonight and I cannot believe that anyone of those women would EVER hold up for Taylor.  She is the weakest, plastic, fake, drunk, white trash with a gold card zip code lying back stabbing wanna be mean girl, I have ever seen on TV.  You are a better woman than I am, because I believe I would already of broke her nose and been wearing an orange jump suit, and orange is NOT in my color wheel.  Hang in there lady.

You rock!  I think you handled yourself the right way by leaving.  You know that no one would have had your back because of Taylor.  You are a wonderful person and deserve great things.  Stand by that and no one will destroy you!

I am sooo happy you are a full-time cast member this year.  I love your sense of humor and and your witty comebacks.  I agree 100% about mauricio and Paul giving the money they spent on a private jet to the charity.  These people are clueless about the "real" world....glad you seem to be down to earth!

I don't know how you handle yourself in the upcoming episodes, but if you manage to rise above the Taylors. Kims and Kyles, you will start to rival Lisa in terms of diplomacy.  If Taylor keeps it up with the booze, the ONLY sane thing to do is walk away.  I never understood why people try to reason with drunks.

The party was about "Beutiful Portia." You could've avoided the 2 and still enjoyed the party. I really thought you just wanted to leave and used the drama as an excuse. Whatever, a least you showed it. That was nince.

Taylor has had issues way before you entered the scene.  Those issues are not yours in any way shape or form.  I think that you Lisa and Yolanda could be a fun mix this season.  (PS I have the same Chanel dress that you wore to Portia's b-day party!-Great taste!)

Brandi, I thought you did the right thing by getting out of any drama that nutso Taylor is bent on starting.  You are a sensitive and nice person to your friends, and I wish you the best.

I thought the Kyle thing was weird. She seems to have a forward face to some people and other people she talks about them after the fact. I think its about money. It seems she does that with both LIsa and Adrienne. In that part of the country your money  is your power so clearly Lisa and Adrienne have a lot of it.

Unfortunately you don't have that so spitting in your face about something she doesn't like is okay..who do you know that makes a difference to her?

I think Kyle is a wannabe just like Taylor.

Brandi you are so right, but that's what rich people do. I hope when your in their place you have more compassion and understanding toward your charity, because money changes people perception of what help is. Your one of the most realist housewives on the show. I hope you can get along with Yolanda and become a team featuring You, Lisa and Yolanda.

Brandi you are such a girls girl and you are a loyal friend. It's nice to see you speak your mind and not worry about fitting in, in a town where so many people want to fit in (clears, throat...Taylor). You and Lisa are my favorite!

I saw Brandi on Wendy Williams and she seemed to have a great attitude about everything. Even towards man stealing Leann Rimes. I think she is completely hated on by some of the housewives because she has a sense of humor and is young not too mention beautiful. Glad they made her an official cast member. She deserves the money and actually needs it.

Even though I am still not sure if I like you or not, mostly because I have a hard time with your overly sexual sense of humor and your seemingly out of place comments (my issue not yours), I was very proud of you for how you handled the situation at Portia's party. It was thoughtful, grown-up and very appropriate to take yourself out of the situation that dagerous and horrendous Taylor was setting up for you. I did like that about you on this episode. Well done!

Glad you are back Brandi! Love to see you and Lisa together ...too funny ...I am amazed that people can't take a joke like when you made that comment about sleeping with everyone in town of course you haven't...that would be your ex-husband ....lol.......Hi everyone! Xoxo Miss Val

Great blog!! I agree about Adrienne, what on earth is Lisa supposed to apologize about??? I positively can't stand Adrienne anyway. I find her to be such a bore and clueless about everything. I don't possibly get how she succeeds at anything, she is off the mark on any situation they ever show her in!!!

i love you so much brandi. i am glad that you left the party at the first sign of drama.

 

your blog is hilarious by the way. you always make me laugh.

 

be careful of conniving kyle who's probably just being friends with you and lisa because she knows that the fans have lisa and your back.

You are too cool and gorgeous and hilarious! Don't you love a woman slobbering and slurring your obvious joke as if she's discovered some juicy bit. She looked demented. Life has dealt you some tough breaks. I'm guessing you have a lot of happiness waiting for you just around the corner. You're going to do very well and it makes me smile. The mean girls are so threatened by the new, YOUNG, gorgeous girl...except Ms. Vanderpump who is also cool and gorgeous and hilarious. Go get 'em Brandi!

Brandi!!! You are awesome! You are quickly becoming one of my FAVE housewives!!! I also love your relationship with Lisa...these women need to joke and laugh a lot more in life! they are so financially blessed that they need to start counting their blessings. You seem really down to earth (you don't put up any fronts) and you are easy to relate with. I will give Kim a pass this season because she is recovering alcoholic. Taylor, however, is STILL a hot mess that just gossips about everyone (even her own "friends" aka Adrienne). Also stay away from Kyle. That lady claims to have made peace with you but any chance Kyle gets, she's taking jabs!!! Team Lisa and Brandi!!!

"You are smart enough to know that unless they chartered a private jet, there was no way that Paul & Mauricio could have gotten to/from Sacramento & Beverly Hills to get back in time for Portia's birthday party. So quit with the petty jabs- "  

 

You completely missed Brandi's point.  She is saying rather than Paul and Mauricio spend the money hiring a charter to fly to Sacramento (about $6000/per hour), they should have stayed home and just donated that amount to the charity.

 hilarious! and orange doesn't become me either! as well, I don't understand the Taylor business either. Her jealousy or as Kyle says "jellie?" is beyond the pale.

 

Keep on keepin' on, Brandi.You're absolutely stellar!

@xxxemxxx Brandi chose the correct approach. She didn't want drama and that is why she chose to just leave. Good for you Brandi! Taylor actually looked so stupid in the end and you weren't even in the mess!

@Bigwednesday IMHO, Kyle, a Capricorn Is like a diplomat. Who tries to broker things. Not exactly wearing two faces, but does so when necessary. Taylor, a Gemini, is just more prone to using the duality mask. She likes people to like her. Not trying to offend caps and gems here, it's a complex mix and I'm an Aries, so I have no stake and pretty much offend everyone, But overall, I think Kyle is more calculating, and Taylor (esp with booze) is going all Jekyll and Hyde on our asses! Ha. That was supposed to be funny. No haters please:)

@yvonnegraham Brandi was taking the high road by leaving to avoid Taylor's non sense....someone has to be the adult sometimes

 As she explained, she was 'afraid" she didn't want drama to escalate and it was VERY clear Taylor arrived very "spirited!"

 @yvonnegraham Brandi wasn't afraid of "lil" skinny Taylor"! She didn't want drama from Taylor at Portia's Birthday Party. She has too much class for that! Now Taylor on the other hand was drunk and spread nothing but gossip during a little girl's birthday party. Try to follow the story line.

 That was actually funny; are any of the ladies Libra to your knowledge and what traits do you see in them?

 @Isee  @Bigwednesday

 Its not about being a Capricorn...its really really about money. Whoever has the most wins...I don't mind Kyle as a tv charactor but would never have her as a friend. She is two faced and a trouble maker and guising it under the diplomatic title. She does make the show entertaining in that trailer park sort of way.
