I am so bummed that I couldn't make Yolanda's dinner party this episode. But I was hosting a charity event at the Kentucky Derby called Ferdinand's Ball to benefit the horses that had previously raced and were now retired and needed care. I adore all animals and just couldn't say no to this great cause.
Watching this episode was very visually stimulating because Yolanda and David's house is just so pretty and almost everything and everyone looked amazing. . .
I am not sure why Taylor continues to talk about me to complete strangers with secondhand misinformation -- but she does. Well clearly her misinformation wasn't taken to heart because I did eventually have a date with the handsome Chris Botti and NO we didn't sleep together but we did have a super sexy fun time. Sadly for me he is always traveling or working but we do keep in touch and are friends.
Personally, I don't care for Brandi. She is a fake trying to be something as a way to resolve her feelings over Eddie. If you HAVE class, you don't repeat derogatory information publicly. It is not your right, it not your place and it has NOTHING to do with you. Brandi is trying to become the villain of RHBH so her paycheck can be increased because Barbie doll always complains about not having money.
It's not even that Taylor talks behind your back, it's that she seems to take such glee in trashing you. I wouldn't worry, you can see everyone she's telling are making more judgments on her than on you when she does.
Brandi, just love love love how honest and real you are! Sometimes the words are, more than direct, but you are a straight shooter and that is what people want to see. Lisa and Ken are great support to you. Adrienne has her issues, and one of them is Paul. (No longer, I guess the divorce is final). Divorce is a tough time of life, many people have experienced it.
Continue to be real, we all look forward to seeing and hearing more about you.
Brandi I have something for your to keep in mind while you film this season: “Ladran, Sancho, senal que cabalgamos.” from the Cervantes's masterpiece, Don Quixote to Sancho Panza. Which translates to: “the dogs are barking, Sancho, it's a sign that we are moving forward”....let them bark Brandi!!!!
Brandi the more of you I see the more I like! I can relate much more to you because you are young and fun and I totally get your sense of humor!
Brandi, anyone who cares about animals and hosts a charity event for them, is a good person in my book. I already liked you on the show, now I like you as a person even better. Don't listen to Taylor, she seems insane!
The way in which you have grown on the show is amazing. I think you are beautiful, smart, very funny, etc. I hope you get a spin off show because you remind me of Bethenny from RHONY. Good Luck!!
We all know Taylor has many, many problems. Why not try ignoring her? Taylor is her own worst enemy and makes a fool of herself. Obviously her poisonous words did not register with Chris Botti. Just keep living your life and surround yourself with supporters - not haters.
I really like you. You are funny and clearly and really harmless. Those girls put you through such a hazing last year and I'm glad that you came out on top. Taylor really is pathetic in her treatment of you. Good luck to you and your family.
Those Ladies are so jealous of Brandi for her not being afraid to just be herself.
Your so right. She tells you to your face what she thinks. Thats why Kim is still mad. She acted like a meth head last season and wants to be blame Brandi for telling the truth. Puleeze.
Do we get to see your date with Chris Botti??? He is so hot!!!! How about date number 2??? He is so amazing...
Happyhousewifeinmd what can possibly be hot about a man who admits to shooting botox in his face? yuck!! big huge yuck!!
So glad to see you on the show. Don't waste your energy even typing Taylors name. She gossips about others to make her low self esteeem self look good. Don't even give her the time or the look. Breath and stay away from her.
Unfortunately, I think Taylor has self esteem problems and it contributes to her needing to try to put others down. Just ignore it.....she looked really small while she was doing it....
<3 Love you Brandi! One of my favorite housewives ever!!! I missed you in this episode :(
INSIDETHEBELTWAY UMMMM I think your wrong about Lisa and Adrienne. You got it a bit twisted with those two and FYI Ken is nobody's fool.
I don't understand why people think that Brandi is loyal. Adrienne was defending her a lot in season 2 and she turned her back against her in the re-union. Don't get me wrong I love Lisa but I just can't see Brandi being loyal to anyone if there isn't something in it for herself.
"I'm not sure if I would have shown up to one of Lisa's friends' homes for a dinner party if I were Adrienne, knowing full well Lisa would be there," Lisa just said in her blog that she let Yolanda form her own opinions and refrained from giving her background info on any pre existing fights, and Yolanda confirmed this on her blogs, so this point would be moot unless we can't take Yolanda and Lisa at their word. And I like Yolanda so far so please don't go breaking my heart!! And before anyone jumps on me, I'm on the Brandi side of Brandi vs Adrienne because I think Brandi fights fair. Keep playing fair and I will stay in your corner B.
@laura.ann - that comment was about Adrienne's choice to attend, not about Lisa or Yolanda
@KarateKaren Adrienne's choice to attend exists within the context of the interpersonal dynamics between her, Lisa and Yolanda, which is what Brandi was pointing out with her comment.
You are too cute. I love that you were at a charity event and actually doing something out of the goodness of your heart. You didn't miss much but we missed you.
anita7 While it never shows class or grace to insult peoples' level of education and training, it is just ridiculous when you do it using a littany of incorrect grammer and punctiation.
She was drunk when she was saying tose things and obviously she holds a grudge against you for the things you said about her and her book. Maybe if you apologize she will stop.
@ArmywifeRobyn I don't think Brandi has anything to apologize for. She spoke what she felt was the truth and I for one agree with her so to apologize would be disingenuous.
ArmywifeRobyn I don't think Taylor is mean to Brandi because of the book comments, that's just her excuse. Taylor is mean to Brandi because she is bitter and jealous. Brandi is everything Taylor is not: happy, successful, beautiful and FUNNY.
@Cards @ArmywifeRobyn I think Taylor is so jealous of Brandi because Brandi has gained popularity and acceptance with important people in this crowd without trying or caring by simply being her natural self. Whereas Taylor has "fought hard for this zip code," sacrificing everything true about herself in the process. Just my observations from what I see played out on the show, in interviews and on blogs.
Wow- this is a perfect example of how absence makes the heart grow fonder!
I thought it was a good call on your part to text Kyle after you left the party. There is no reason for you to stay if you felt uncomfortable, and Kyle would have kept begging you to stay.
Keep hanging tough!
Brandi - sooo glad you are holding a diamond this season! i adore you. i have never liked a housewife. i've tolerated some, been on "team" so-and-so, but never actually liked any housewife. i like you. i hope you don't change or let this stuff go to your head. i don't think you will. you're absolutely wonderful. i admire your strength through the insanity you've been through, you handle it so gracefully. and taylor is a nightmare. i really wish she would not have been on this season, she should be getting help instead of just trying to get some extra cash to buy more shoes or whatever. i know this probably won't get posted because i said something about taylor, but whatevs! we love you on vulture's recap blogs too, and i can preach all i want there about how awesome you are and how i wouldn't have watched this season if they would not have brought you on and would've kept taylor.
Taylor appears to have caught whatever Kim had last year. Must be contagious... No worries dear.
People don't like people who are open and honest and that's a fact. You are not afraid to say what is on your mind and I think that's cool. You don't live in a $5MM mansion, so who cares.
You are who you are and that is what counts. Keep it up and don't change for anyone.
Wouldn't worry about Taylor, the woman is a total mess and that is clear to all watching. Kyle cannot handle the fact spotlight is not even remotely on her when you are around, she stands behind the shadow of your great butt. Everyone loves you for who you really are now that's a fantastic thing to enjoy!;)
I am glad Brandi is back this season!! The ladies, Lisa excluded, are mean and nasty to her because they are jealous of her.
Brandi, Missed you this episode! Says a lot for Mr. Botti's character that even though Taylor trashed you AT THE DINNER TABLE no less (NO CLASS) he still asked you out. very nice! You are clearly a good person and I enjoy you every time you are on! Keep being you!
You are always a pleasure to watch on the shows. You have certainly shown the viewers what a few of the girls are **really** like thats for sure. Glad you are standing up for yourself and so good to see you and Camile and Lisa being friends/buddies. LOL....Don't allow any of the girls to come between you three. Even at the reunion Kyle was trying so hard to make the viewers think she was sorry for the things she said and did to you and as for me..it just didn't work. Matter of fact IMO she made it worse especially trying to stop you from answering Andy's questions. Anyone can see right through her and its a shame because I think she could be a good friend if she would just take a good look at herself. Please don't let these girls run you off Brandi. You are a welcomed addittion to the shows. Love you kiddo.
Brandi --- You are real. They are jealous. Look at you! Taylor's voice is annoying enough, let alone what comes out of it. Keep being you !! You are refreshing!!
Brandi, I truley believe you are living in the wrong zip code. You need to move Jersey & join their cast.
