Brandi Glanville

Brandi attempts to clarify the joke she made, defends herself from Kenya Moore, and explains her behavior on vacation.

on Dec 10, 20130

First and foremost, I really do want to sincerely apologize and say I am truly sorry for the insensitive joke I made about Joyce not getting in the water and to anyone of my friends or fans of the show I offended.

I generally tend to speak before thinking, which is something I wish I could change about myself. But it has been 41 years now and I don't really see that happening. I generally feel like the more you protest about something the guiltier one usually looks, but after looking at social media (which is ruining all of our lives BTW) I guess I need to prove myself a little further.

To start off, I have been in several romantic relationships over the years with African American men and still have close relationships with those ex-boyfriends even now. For over 20 years now, I have had girlfriends from pretty much every ethnical background. Sometimes (actually a lot of times) these girlfriends and I joke inappropriately with each other. These jokes are clearly not ready for TV.

I married and have two children with a Cuban man whose parents were both born and raised in Cuba, and I consider my children to be multi-racial. I am not a racist and I apologize for my insensitive joke. The moment those words came out of my mouth I regretted them and felt like I just handed Joyce/Jacqueline the gift that she had been waiting for to have another go at me and give herself the attention she clearly was craving.

All of that being said, I hope you see that although it didn't go too well, I was just trying to be funny -- as I always try to be. Life is not worth living if you can't laugh with your close friends. In the future, I will remember in to hold back with people who I now see are only looking to take me down so that they can have a something for themselves.

Brandi, don't listen to these critics! You are the most entertaining person on the show. You make mistakes but it's plain to see you have a big heart. You also sense the sensitivity in others and that's why you are attracted to them. Like Carlton. She's unusual but very sweet and caring.


The least entertaining, and troublesome, newcomer is Joyce. All that hair-tossing is kind of annoying but what really put me off was her "my God is better than your God" attitude to Carlton. Who does that to ANYONE? I don't think she is mean, just very self-centered and probably not very smart. That may be why everyone is having trouble getting close to her. Including the audience.

This was NOT even an apology.

An apology is when someone goes out of their way to say, "I am sorry I did 'this to you'..."

This is NOT what brandi did.

The first thing she does is uses this forum once more, to use the improper name she knows Joyce hates and will not respond to. She then further goes on by defending herself. An apology isn't a chance to defend ones self.

Brandi, YOU FAIL on all circuits at apologizing,

Would you like to try again, or was that your plan all along? To again put the light on yourself as usual?

You say that you like to joke around but really the joke is on you...you,re in turn destroying and demeaning yourself along the way while "joking" around.

Brandi you need help in more ways than one. After last nights show you should be removed  the show period. Your mouth is beyond anything I have ever heard in my life and I have heard plenty. You have no excuse for your actions, if we all acted like you did during our hard times in our lives this world would be horrific. You are a bully, and you are being used by Yolanda for sure. It is no wonder you are a mess, look at you, listen to how you make your nasty little remarks and then act innocent. You have a trash mouth period and that just proves what kind of person you really are.

OMG!!!! People should lighten up!!!! Not everything in life should be labeled!  I feel that's all the housewives do now.  When they don't like what someone says they put a label on it:  Bully, Racist etc. just to create DRAMA!!  Brandi was not being racist and she is not a bully, she was being herself people! Jeez, can't even have a conversation anymore or say something because of a sudden you will get labeled.   GET OVER IT .... life is not about walking on egg shells especially around people you hang around with.  KUDOS to Brandi for having the courage to speak her mind!  whether you agree with her not she has BALLS!! UNLIKE the other women who act all prim and proper and behind closed doors i'm sure they rip people to shreds!!

The only reason why Brandy is sorry is because the public wants her off the show.  Now she apologizes.  I am sorry but where was the apology  at the dinner party.  She could have told Joyce and her husband she was sorry and drank too much.  No she didn''t  a little too late. She is not sorry for what she said just sorry it may end her house wife career.  Lisa gives a dinner party to fix the mess .  Sorry again LIsa you should have told Brandi to keep her big mouth shut.

The problem is that Brandy you come across as not having sense to know what is appropriate, and you do not care. These are things that can not be taught. You have to have some commonsense. 

So I am officially off of the Brandy Train Ride. I really liked you Brandy for your honesty but you do not get it. You were rude to Joyce and the comments you made to her are not funny. If you think they are funny comments,  there is a serious problem with you. You need to apologize to her. Also telling someone to shut the F___ up is getting old now.  I am simply tired of hearing you say that.

She wants to complain about people  calling her a bully but makes the worst comments. Yeah youre really proving people wrong. You are  a bully and to a wide range of people. You're also a dimwit and I can't wait for you to leave the show. Your children deserves to know the real monster you are.

I don't think Brandi needs to apologize for anything she said - her most entertaining quality is that she says what everyone else is thinking.

what did brandi says that was so terrible?  did I miss something?  i think she is hilarious and truth be told she says what everyone else is thinking.

A generalization is taking one or a few facts and making a broader, more universal statement. If all the girls you know play with dolls, you might make the generalization that all girls play with dolls.  Generalizations can be similar to stereotypes in that they are sometimes wrong and harmful. Usually, it's best to stick with specifics and avoid generalizations.  Making a generalization doesn't make you racist.

I am convinced that this "feud" with Joyce is made up.  There is  now way any of this behavior towards each other is real.

Brandi: At first I was one of your biggest supporters.  That said, I can no longer support your actions!! Your mouth is horrible.  You have no filter and your drinking is out of control!!!  You have this "thing" about women who want another woman's husband.  Do you ever blame the "woman who is married to the man"?  I have to wonder at times, what type of marriage you and Eddie had.  I have to assume it was no picnic for him, or else he would have not left you and married Leigh Ann.  I wonder how much of the blame you should take?  You try to come off as the "innocent one".  After your actions & antics this year, I feel that you should take blame where it's due..

As stated, you have to stop drinking if you ever want people to believe you are a "good person".  You seem to be proving that you are not, this year.l.

We don't even need to mention Kenya as she is a waste of time/air.  Watching Brandi is like watching a train wreck, has anyone thought about forcing her into therapy?   She says she is a mother but she's not behaving like one or acting very responsible with her mouth, I wouldn't want that mouth around my children.  The drinking is over the top and another red flag for her ex-husband's lawyer, I would be asking for her to have supervised visitation based on her general unstable behavior.  There are other methods of getting attention then with constant negative behavior.  Just because things weren't going well Brandi got trashed, how does she deal with real problems?  Anyone I know that watches the show has said they really dislike her, I've always stuck up for Brandi but I am asking myself why?  How many women have lost their husband to another woman and are raising children on their own in less than situations and don't behave like this..

You are the mean girl in high school. Who calls a grown woman repeatedly by the wrong name on purpose? Oh, Bertha does. Excuse me, I mean Brandi.

everygirl36
everygirl36

It's like watching the mean girl in high school all over again. The way you speak to Joyce is disgusting. She does not monopolize the conversation, nor does she make it all about herself. And, even if she did, it's no reason for a nice girl to speak to someone like that. Mean girl, mean drunk, not a lady...

Everything you accuse Joyce of being applies 100% to you, not at all to her.  You are jealous of her for obvious reasons.  She is beautiful on the inside and outside.  You never will be that.

Brandi--not all of us can drink--you clearly can't. Once you start drinking your judgement goes out the window and you don't know when to stop. Yolanda was right--drunk women are unattractive and not at all pleasant to be around. Stop drinking in public and in front of the cameras. If you can't then it's time to seek help. I'm a fan but I see nothing good coming from this behavior.

No more new posts because you are so embarrassed of your behavior? Just FYI, it's still possible to change. Stop excusing yourself and start to focus on the right way to be, for children if not yourself.

Instead of trying to convince the pubic of anything about yourself, how about a sincere apology without any excuses and then just STFU.  That would be the  mature thing to do.  Since you seem to be incapable of that, it appears you are a coward as well as an ill-mannered attention seeking drunk.  You are not funny.  You are a very hurtful, mean, bitter,  and jealous little girl.  Grow up and get off this show.  Watching you make a fool of your self every week is getting tiresome.

Come out come out come out wherever you are. Why are you not doing your weekly blogs? Is it because you come off as a drunken mess!! Grow the "F" up please!!!! How you can face your two boys after these shows have aired is beyond me. You are a disgrace and a mess. Oh and Joyce is not the one who is jealous of another pretty woman being in the room. You are!! Lets face it, you're not getting any younger and definitely not that hot!! No one likes to see a drunk at a table. Why doesn't Yolanda school you on your behavior?

Another week of no blogging. . . . that's how I realized that Kim Richards had a drinking problem because she would keep forgetting to blog.

No blog again this week?  Another innappropriate comment at Yolanda's dinner paty?  Why did you tell Joyce to shut up that we were not in Miami?  You really have issues and I'm starting to believe that you might be a racist after all. Disgusting.

Oh no Ms. Brandi! You are losing fans quickly!  Time to turn it around, and fast.  I've been a fan since day 1 and i wont let these few of your less finer moments sway that, but start thinking before you speak.  You're becoming (or at least it appears) desperate for attention, and you dont care how you get it.  Truthfully, you were acting like a bully and you have given ppl the right to now call you that.  Also, why in Gods name are you turning on Lisa?  After everything her and Ken did for you, how they defended you and even sacrificed their relationships with friends for you?  I know we viewers don't see everything but what is being shown has not been appealing for you.  Bring back the funny, witty, sweet, Brandi that people want to like.

Being from the Hispanic community and since you like to lump us all together....APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED!!!! You are mean, jealous and the word bully doesn't even begin to explain your bad behavior against Joyce.

I don't know how much stupidity you are carrying in your head,but it should be a lot.Now it make sense why your husband left you for another woman.

I know that your dog Chica was a shelter dog. Very cute and sweet and I am sure she is missing her first parents, maybe that is why she has run away twice. Not saying that she doesn't love you and your sons. Some shelter dogs seem to  have a very strong memory of the first parents. I am sure that someone kind has her and took her in. I think Joyce was just telling you she understood how terrible you felt at that moment.

 Rewatch the episode, Michael started it and the both came to dinner very arrogant and ready to fight. Joyce said she was there for Muhammad  (thank you for a lovely dinner Lisa) and ignored everyone.

@Breen1 I agree! Brandi is the one person I can't wait to see. What will she say, what will she do next? I often cringe when she goes overboard but more often than not I feel bad for her. If I had been through the same divorce humiliation and someone put a camera on me I wonder what I would do. How painful that must have been for her.

No matter how hurt and angry she gets, she still has a big heart. Besides, she is very sensitive and I think she senses something is not right about Joyce.

@Breen1 really? You think everyone was thinking that Joyce was a big fat pig? Or last season, that everyone knew Adrienne and Paul's family business needed to be outed? Or possibly that everyone was thinking of tossing the F bomb every other sentence?

 @Breen1

 The difference between an adult and a child is that a child says what is on their minds, thinking of only themselves, not how or if it will affect others.  If you lived in an area that thinks anyone from the south is just a stupid hillbilly and married to a relative, would you spout that and excuse it as "everyone is thinking it?"  I would hope not.  Would you say that someone is a failure just because they are divorced?  Unfortunately, that is thought by many.  But would you say it because they were thinking it?  What if something like that is said about your friend or you?

 @Breen1 Are you kiddding?  You're black!! Joyce is a big fat pig!! Those are just two examples of things that Brandi said.   Her making those type of statements is totally unacceptable.  She is totally socially challenged.  She is brainless.  She has never carried on one civil conversation with anyone.  I don't think she's funny at all.  If any of my children acted like her I would be totally ashamed of them..She needs help..bottom line..

@Breen1 so the remarks about Joyce being a black person because she doesn't swim or her remarks about pronouncing Joyce's name with an H even after she asked Brandi not to. Or when the host of a dinner party asked Joyce to say the cheers in Spanish and Brandi kept saying she didn't like Spanish. Or the comment about killing a Puerto Rican. If racism was not involved then stupidity was.

 @gisellb Correct. However making some broad generalizations can, and often does show how ignorant someone is.  Why defend the indefensible?

CapeCoddess

 @hannah79 Why are you so convinced of that? Do you recall the "behavior" of some former cast members of this very show? They too appeared unbelievable in their actions. Yet, as shocking as it all was to watch, being stunned after learning the details of just how true much of it was revealed to be was horrific. Watching Brandi in action rings too true. Just as her shady comment to Yolanda's beautiful daughter did while Brandi was trying to stir the pot between that beautiful young model & Joyce. That  spoke volumes about the depths Brandi will sink to, solely for the purpose of causing someone feel hurt or embarrased especially in front of an audience.

 @fireplacer Yes!!! Exactly! Stop on! It is so obvious that Brandi is disturbingly envious of beautiful Joyce <3

 @fireplacer I agree. She does appear to be jealous of Joyce. She is a victim of her own trouble and probably not feeling good about herself. She lost the husband, now the dog is lost, what next. So she lashes out at people and Joyce is the target. But Joyce keeps giving it back. Bravo Joyce!

 @Sarah4810  I  agree with you but really want them to get rid of her. She needs help bad and is a train wreck that I don't want to be part of. There is no excuse regarding her actions toward any of these women except Yolanda and Lisa has been behind her actions and them trying to talk to her and help her is a joke.  This woman is headed to the mental ward and it is scary to watch.

 @gigi731  @hannah79 I am not calling you names why are you calling me names?  Do we know each other?  Brandi Glanville may have lost an appearance but she was still paid for it and if she appeared in Tampa.  And who needs therapy -- me or Brandi?
