Brandi Glanville

Brandi shares why she wasn't speaking to her dad, what it means for her depression, and talks about the Joanna-situation.

on Nov 14, 20130

Awwww. I'm so excited you all finally get to meet my maker, mother, and my love mamma Judy Glanville. My mother has always been the most giving woman I know, so when it came time to move I knew I could depend on her for help.

My parents have been married now for over 44 years. Normally my dad would have come to help me move as well. Sadly, at that time he was really struggling with some health issues, and we were unfortunately not on speaking terms. My father and I are a lot alike -- we are both outspoken, strong-willed, opinionated, temperamental -- and who do you think I learned the "f word" from. (Side note: my mother has never said that particular curse word -- but has made up for it with many others.) So I'm sure one can imagine what fights between my dad and I must be like. I do not like to argue with my dad, especially now with his health in a not great place -- so I am eager to make up with him as soon as possible.

That said, I gave my sweet and very laid back mom a tour of my new rental home. She doesn't seem overly excited by it, but that is just her personality. She really is happy for me. . .I swear! Going through some offices boxes we found some of my old journals and silly poetry books. Looking through them, I randomly come across a cute poem I wrote about the fact that my mom never calls me, we laughed so hard we were in tears.

I LOVE YOU BRANDI! You are the sole reason my sisters and I watch RHOBH religiously! You say what everyone else is thinking, and dont take any BS! Keep going girl... these ladies in NJ have your back!

I honestly believe that the best thing that ever happened to you was getting  divorced from Eddie Cibrian. Yolanda was married to a cheater who I'm sure made her suffer a lot. She is now with a wonderful man that treats her like a queen and makes her extremely happy. The same thing will happen to you with time. xoxo

 @Reba39forever Thanks Reba :) I agree, without Lisa the show would be incomplete and missing a lot.That woman is AMAZING. Honestly, i enjoy every....single....one of them ..lol ;))) Can't wait for tomorrow's episode !

Got a big kick out of your poem about mom...LOL

"...My mom is pretty, but she is kind of sh*tty

She acts real nice, but then you think twice..."

I used to write "poems" too to express my feelings and i enjoyed yours very much :)

Thank you for a flashback into my  childhood  !!!

 @Reba39forever  I did enjoy Adrienne and Camille (especially second and third season Camille, not first season Camille), and would like to see more of them. I admit the BH housewives took a different turn this season, it's more bitchy and x rated ..lol 

But i still enjoy it very much. My #1 favorite among all the housewives franchise.

Brandi, you need to stay with Lisa. She and her husband have been true friends to you and you need to remember that !!!  Girl friends are the best frends and when you find one you need to treat her with repect. Stand up and say I am sorry. If they are there when your down remember to keep them when you up......

p.s.  I hope you and Lisa become friends again.  Lisa takes alot of crap from Kyle and she was a true friend when no one else was there

I do like you Brandi but bringing up the Kyle cheating things wasn't your best moment.  I know Kyle deserves it and I know sometime in the season it would happen, but I don't think  the luncheon was the best timing.  Now I think Kyle and Kim are being mean girls towards Carlton just like they were to you.  They are mean girls and probably always have been.

Just because you know something to be true doesn't mean you have to broadcast it to the world.  I used to be a fan but now I wish you had a filter on your mouth.

Brandi, I've always liked you but it's so wrong for you to stab Lisa in the back. She was your ONLY friend when u joined the cast. Kyle & Kim hated you from day 1, making fun of u on ur crutches! Lisa had ur back & defended u when Adrienne was nasty to you! So for you to join the Kyle & Kim bashing Lisa wagon is disgusting! Why is it that when you, Kyle or Kim say things....it's a joke BUT when Lisa does the same it's a DIG? Get over yourself!!!

Your new catch phrase really applys to you.

You climbed fast and you are gonna fall fast.

Before you were fun and outspoken, now you just say stuff for shock value and drama.

So, you can make jokes about Lisa's "perfect" faint, but she can't make a joke about you with you, because it's a "dig".

Brandi - no longer a fan.  You slurred Lisa and the faint - made fun of your best friend.??!    Never never use the C word - even if you are kidding.  You would do well to support other women - not tear them down.  If you want them to be there for you.  but alas - I think it might be too late.  Remember  -- you are a role model for your children.  Do America a favor - stop the filthy mouth.

Funny how when Lisa was making those "digs at Kyle" during lunch Brandi found them all funny and took part in it as well. She forgot to mention that.

Oh Brandi!  I can't wait to see the episode where you stab Lisa in the back!!!  Who will come to your defense--Yolanda?  But, wait, wait, wait...you don't need anyone to come to your defense because you're mouth does that for you.  Anyway, it'll be nice to see you show your true colors and how everyone that thought you were so delightful and fun will see that you're just trashy and didn't deserve Lisa's help in the first place.  But, Lisa, deserves what you do to her just for being stupid enough to want to help you in the first place.  Like Kyle said last year---Lisa loves a pet project!  HA!  You're a joke!

All you Brandi haters either fail to realize or admitt ,you LOOOOVE to hate Brandi & can't wait to see what she does next! Lordy! What would you write about without her? Kyle's earrings? Kim's dog?  Yawn.

I don't believe for a second that Brandi brought up the infidelity in the tabloids because she wanted to give Kyle the "heads up."  She wanted to stick a dig and then talk about how her husband cheated on her - AGAIN!  Cause she is eternally the victim of adultery.  Where's the fun Brandi?  Now all there is being vulgar and then talking about how she was cheated on; Next!

I still like you. You are a smart cookie, you know exactly how and what you're doing...hehe... It's sad though that you are not friends with Lisa anymore :( She really DID have your back a lot of times when everyone else pointed fingers at you. She was by your side at your darkest moments last season. No one is perfect, but she was truly genuine with you. Hope you two make up. Other than that , YOU GO, GIRL !

I say ENOUGH with the bathtub scenes!!!! The whole flashing the camera your behind was so predictable for you. I think you are desperate for attention.  This may sound mean but your actions may be part of the reason you are single.  I use to really like you and cheer you on and hated when it seemed you were picked on. You are not much fun to watch and the season just started.

I am really starting to get annoyed with the constant b!tching about Lisa's digs.  When did this group become so sensitive?  It is all in good fun, never anything malicious. Besides Brandi you are constantly saying inappropriate things and you want everyone to accept it.  I still like you, but you are getting on my nerves.  Another thing I am so tired of you speaking of how much richer the other women are than you.  You sound  very ungrateful on television living in a nice house and you still have money. (Hell you're a lot richer than I am.) Also I am so sick of you acting like this scorned woman because Eddie cheated on you, move on.  It has been years, I sympathize what you went through, but please stop bringing it up.  He was wrong, the women who slept with him were wrong, and Leann was wrong, but it's time to stop talking about it and in such a crass way. Besides that scandal is the only reason you are a part of this show so something good came out of it.  As for the Joanna thing, you should have never opened your mouth.  You are hurting Yolanda and her children even  mentioning that to big mouth Adrianna after your friend confided in you and TRUSTED you.

Brandi I am so sad to see that you fight with Lisa In an upcoming episode you are direct and honest . I myself thought Lisa , Yolanda  and you made a great team and gave girlfriends/ housewives a good name together!

I am sorry to hear you are conquering a dark place.

I hope the riff with Lisa reveals to be worth it and not a mean girl act or you just dismissing her.

Take care.

I just love your brutal honesty. I feel for everything you've been through. I was cheated on and had a messy divorce with 4 children. I had never worked since I had my kids. My husband hid his money. I went through he'll. so I really feel for you. I never remarried. That was my second marriage. I love Yolanda too because you are both like me very straight forward. I admire you. I saw you in person when you were pregnant with your first child. You and Eddie were right next to me in Ikea. I thought you were such a pretty pregnant women. I wish you all the success and happiness. Those other women are just so jealous. I like Lisa too because she genuinely cares for you.

The best thing about Brandi is that she admitted she's not used to living in Beverly Hills. Yes - the best part about her is that she's straight from the trailer park - and it shows.

I was never a huge Brandi fan but I think I might be becoming one! What Brandi said on WWHL might have been harsh....if it was spoke about any other housewive but as far as Joanna goes, she totally deserves the remark. I am sorry but Joanna is such a mean and negative person who is always dishing out  insults so I am glad someone finally dished it to her.

Brandi stop the bullsh*t... You did not inadvertently get involved in this fiasco!! You inserted yourself smack dab in the middle by talking about other people's business to big mouth Adriana! Period! You are so quick to disregard a friendship........ So sad...

You got fame and fortune being irreverent and filterless. I can see you wanting to keep pushing it to limit assuming you'll get more fame and fortune.  What I think you are going to get is infamy as people turn off to your vulgarity.  In a single season of HW whatever franchise any one of you housewives can go from favorite to out of favor and before you know it you are off the show. I think you should start thinking about how you are embarrassing yourself and turning people off.

I agree with JessieandKitty - your mouth doesn't do you any favors in your personal life, I'm sure. You do make for entertaining TV because of how mouthy you are, but the words you choose can be vulgar and sound very trashy. I hate watching a woman talk about vulgar things, I think it's disgusting. I don't condone your ex-husband for cheating, but I do believe that men find a woman who talks like a truck driver extremely unappealing - even though they may want to sleep with her, I think they don't really fall in love with them. Some women who are good looking physically, think they can get away with being gross. But I see the looks on other people's faces that shows otherwise.

Brandi, you're one piece of work. I never thought you'd stoop so low but yet you did. Like others have said, you used to be fun to watch. I myself loved the banter between you and Ken. I cannot find anything good to write about you anymore. You should be very... very ashamed of yourself. You belong on the RHONJ, you would fit right in!

Jessieandkitty
Jessieandkitty

I used to find you fun to watch because you're direct and don't take any crap from people but now I find you obnoxious and rude...the things that come out of your mouth are crude and disgusting.  You pride yourself on being "out spoken, strong-willed, opinionated and temperamental" but your not 5 years old anymore....you should know when to keep your mouth shut and keep your opinions to yourself.  You come across trashy!!

One wouldn't think it would be that hard to learn how to filter one's comments so that innocent people don't get hurt - especially if there's a bad habit of always spewing venom when there's a comment made.

@Tea_For_Two @Reba39forever All my own bitchin aside easilly my favorite HW show. But iif Lisa left so would I. If Brandi left I would do a happy dance. The rest I enjoy. I am not always nice in posts but they all bring something to the show for the most part.

@Candy_V I'm sorry I don't agree. Lisa is a back stabber even when she was Kyle friend.

 @SansiIt is a nice idea, but in fact Lisa was not her only friend when she joined the cast.  She was right there with Kyle making fun of Brandi when she first came on and was limping on her high heels.  No, she was not at Game Night, but she certainly didn't like Brandi, and the other gals had her back about the whole Cedric deal.  Remember, when they all went to Hawaii, which was near the end of Season 2, Lisa asked Kyle to not invite Brandi on the trip.  She told Ken she didn't want Brandi there because she still didn't trust her about the Cedric deal.  It was Kyle who stood up to Lisa and said she was trying to get to a better place with Brandi because she felt badly about Game Night, and she wanted to try and be friends with her.  Brandi and Kyle actually did have some very nice moments, especially in Hawaii when Brandi and her had a very nice private talk about how Brandi thought that Kyle had done all she could for Kim, and that she shouldn't feel guilty about anything. Ironically enought, this was also the trip when Lisa started to thaw towards Brandi.  If Lisa had had her way, Brandi wouldn't even have been on that trip.

 

The only real friend Brandi had was Adrienne during the first season, and she stabbed her in the back at the reunion, going to Lisa and telling her all the private stuff that Adrienne had told her because she was very angry at Lisa.  Brandi, who was still friendly with Adrienne at that time, went to Lisa with it all, which is what has caused pretty much every bit of drama that has followed.  Lisa should have been wary at that time about what would have made Brandi turn on Adrienne, but she was more than willing to accept her betrayal because she was backing her up.  As Lisa said in her blog last week, hindsight really is 20/20.

 @scooper70 What's wrong with liking attention?  Some of us like it, some of us don't like it.  I think people who criticize others as "desperate for attention" should reconsider that cliche.  Brandi likes attention and people like to give it to her.  She doesn't appear to me to to be "desperate" for it -- she gets plenty.  And if it makes her happy, good for her!

 @nicoled  I am not fond of Joanna either but when you stoop as low as Brandi did it becomes less about the person you are insulting and more about the fact that you are the type of person who dishes out the low blows using other people as ammunition.

 @nicoled I think Joanna is mean too.  Actually, I think she is hard as she was used so much and is a fighter.  I think she is bi polar as she goes from nice and loving to royal bitch in a flash.  However, I hate what Brandi did as it hurt Yolanda and her family.  Her kids heard this nasty stuff.  I am so losing my taste for all these shows as I am losing people to side with when they all are becoming nasty, snotty, narcissistic, wannabe bitches....  All of them suck now except Yolanda.

@Tea_For_Two @Carrie14 The ratings for this show were double what they are since this train wreck came on board. BH was different because it was the truly mega rich Lisa Adrienne Camille did not need the show but they came on and allowed us into see these amazing lifestyles -they are why I watch. NOT girls gone wild.
