Brandi Glanville

Brandi explains what was keeping her from checking on her hand, and defends Lisa missing Yolanda's party.

on Jan 280

I broke my hand on a Thursday. I had my friend who is a MMA fighter and boxer wrap it for me and was happy to go to Carlton's party on Sunday. I did not go to the doctor for a few reasons. First, I barely had any time to -- and second I didn't have medical insurance at the time. I had been trying for the last year to get medical coverage, but had been turned down because of a pre-existing condition. I have two little boys to take care of and I didn't want to waste my money on myself and have yet another reason to be turned down for insurance.

I now have medical insurance, and, yes, my hand did heal a little deformed. My best friend drove up from San Diego, thank goodness, because with my right hand broken I couldn't really do my hair or makeup, and so I got a helping hand from my girls.

We all went over to Carlton's for her very sexy party. I've never been to a party like that in town of Beverly Hills, but it was interesting and fun -- and all about the company for me. Yolanda looked stunning and exuded elegance, without being stuffy like some of the other gals that refused to get in the pool. But to each their own!

I wasn't there when it happened, but I thought it was a really nice gesture when Kyle gave Carlton the necklace she was wearing. Maybe these two can start fresh.

Watching Kim engage with her fans gave me a a sense of how her life must have been while she was growing up. It was nice to see her in her element. She seemed very happy.

brandi,

be wise and don't alienate lisa...she was your friend when you had none.  you know how it is when you are single...married women want nothing to do with you....lisa was not like that.  I have a friend who is a few years older than I am and very affluent too...she can be bossy and likes to be in charge of being in charge.  I know she loves me so what do I give a $hit if she wants to be the boss of everything?  the way I see is...these ladies are busy and actually care enough to pipe in.  be wise...lisa is not a "good time" friend...she is steady, reliable and loyal...don't mess it up.  remember all of your behavior is going to be in reruns for your kids to see...and their friends...try not to do things that will make them horrified in front of their friends...it's not all about you anymore.

Love you Brandi. My husband cheated in me with another woman in our circle and not one of my REAL friends would ever throw a party and have the mistress there. Or befriend the mistress in any way. I always thought Lisa was awful for doing this to you and I am glad you are starting to see this too. There are women who have been in your position and love you. The rest are people who just have never been there. And no, you don't just "get over it". You learn from it, and you learn who your true friends are. And when you are a hot mess, that is kind of cool too because it means you are human, you are real, and you are just like the rest of us humans who are not perfect, who are learning, who are doing the best with what we got. Thanks for being exactly who you are. Looking forward to seeing your evolution!

Interesting that Brandi has not blogged for 2 weeks. After her convo with Kyle on last night's episode, it would appear that Brandi is planning to blame her 'attack' on Adrienne on Lisa.

Brandi--you are mean-spirited.  Get some counseling for your anger regarding your divorce.  You won't be ready for another relationship for a long time.

I loved you last season.  This year you seem to be playing to the camera/audience.  How many F words does it take to make a sentence? I heard you and Lisa are no longer close and I am sorry. Having someone mother you is not a bad thing!

It is both ridiculous and insulting for you to say you couldn't afford to get your hand fixed.  It probably would have been cheaper than your extensions and your botox - but, priorities, I guess.

I cannot believe all the hate spewed on these pages. It's like a mob that burns houses, roll cars over , break windows and all that crap and I need to say none of them are free thinkers. They hate, hate, hate  and what a bunch of animals with their horrible wishes for you and on top of that they call on karma to get even with you and they are the ones putting venom into the universe.........unbelievable.  They act so high and mighty because they are jealous and have a miserable life so they dump it on these pages. I think they are the ones who needs help. Very sad and completely disgusting. You have never done anything to hurt them in any way. Love you and I will see you on  TV tonight!

Geeze Brandi, your new book will be release next week and I wonder if sales will be as good as they were as your first book. Sorry but I will not be supporting your new book. Your behavior sucks.

Just admit you didn't go to the doctor because you didn't want to.  Acting like you couldn't afford it is a real insult to the people who really can't.    Just quit acting like a brat.

Give me a flippin Break! You didn't go to the Doc because you didn't have health insurance, yet you obviously spend plenty on your looks, e.g., plastic surgeon, salons, designer apparel, to name  few.  What about Bravo? It was work related and God knows they pay for everything else; like private limos and those wonderful trips you take every year.

Enough with the poor little me victimitis already!

when you made fun of Joyce and sang in your confessional..."karma".....reading your blog and describing your hand as deformed b/c you waited to take care of your hand...I hear your words and your voice singing "karma"...


you are just a plain idiot.

Brandi, YOU GO GIRL,   I think your amazing funny and smart and the fact that you do not take anyone's crap well all i got to say about that is KEEP IT UP!  it is no ones business why you did not to the doc about your hand, i waited 3 days to go when i broke my foot, for various reasons like a dummy boss!  you would be a hoot to hang with i am sure do not let the haters get to you, they are jealous!  only bad thing i can think of is you may not like Lisa's "mothering' of you but honey she does that cuz she loves you sooo give her a small break on that one okay.

I wouldn't read Brandi's book if it was the only thing left for me to read. I bet it is full of foul words and stupid stories that are tailored to her benefit.

Joyce never said anything derogatory about Carlton's religion. She said she just felt protected by her own God. Don't make things up as you go along.

Has anybody noticed how Brandi is playing all nicey nicey on social media now that she has a book that is coming out?  What a fake.

Brandy not going to the doctors after breaking your hand and your reasoning is ridiculous. I believe you were probably too drunk to go. You are a mess girl. Stop blaming everyone for you insecurities.

Having watched the episode of your book signing, I feel that your parents, especially your father told you that he was proud of you, not because he was, but because he felt as a father that you needed praise.  Stop running on the hamster wheel of playing "victim".  Move on and use RHOBH to launch your image in a successful business sense other than tell all books.  You have the perfect platform.  And I assure you that once you do start acting like a lady, your father actually WILL be proud of you.  As far as your ex etc, it's no longer a broken record, but nails on a  chalk board.  The greatest pain any woman can feel is the loss of a child.  Imagine losing one of your children, now compared that to losing a loser like Eddie.  No comparison.  Be greatful and cherish the fact that you have 2 healthy beautiful children who still love and adore their mommy.  In their eyes, you are everything.  Nothing else matters.

Brandi you play the role of 'victim' to perfection.  You blame everyone else for your issues and take no ownership for the fires you start.  You are a drama queen.  After watching you this season I am not surprised Eddie left you.  You are so high maintenance.  You turn on people and create drama if you think it will benefit you in any way.

I think everyone should STFU and listen with instincts. They are happy to throw grenades at honesty. Don't stop being honest, luv. OK?

Maybe BRAVO will give you and Carlton your own show cause neither one of you belong on the HW, your both just GROSS

I think that Brandi didn't want to go to he doctor because she didn't have health insurance.  I don't think she wanted to admit to the others that she did not have health insurance. I think she was embarrassed about that. I do think she could have afforded to pay out of pocket though and  should have just gone to the doctor.

lizalou

You should be ashamed of yourself that you didn't have health insurance.  You are what is wrong with this country.  If you would have had to go to the emergency room that day, WE (THE TAXPAYERS) would have been footing the bill for you.  It's pathetic to see someone who drives a nice car, has a beautiful house, and obviously LOTS of plastice surgery, NOT have health insurance.  By the way, your face looks a little odd and freaky this season.

It just sickens me how Brandi tries to put out there this twisted version of everything Joyce says. She dramatizes her simple statements into something they are not.  Carlton does the same.  The poor girl can't say anything around those two!  It's so clear...Brandi is insecure and unsure of herself and so she is lashing out at a person who is happy and secure.  Joyce walks into a room and she lights it up, but when Brandi walks in the room the clouds appear and everything goes dull.  It is SOOOO obvious Brandi is jealous.

@sydney@3 I think Brandi's just playing nice because she knows her book's about to be released.I was a fan of her's last season but after the way she's behaved this season I'd never buy or support anything she puts out.

@sydney@3  LOL...Anything is possible. I couldn't believe Brandi took up for Kyle either...Who knew? I loved it.

@heath89  She certainly is awesome but is the first to admit she's not perfect . We are all works in progress… and being self aware is key.

@miss_molli_mermaid  I can't believe she went there. She brags about her best seller, and how she's "Movin on up." She was able to afford a new house, and has loads of expensive shoes and handbags, but you can't get your broken wrist fixed???? Gimme a break, lol. No pun intended :)

@miss_molli_mermaid You clearly have not had to seek medical treatment lately.  I can certainly understand Brandi's reluctance to go to the doctor.  I do have insurance and I still dread having to go to a medical facility.

@twiddledeedum  Your post speaks in terms of black and white only thinking.  One is either  a hater or a lover.  Black and white thinking lacks the ability to see all the  thousands of shades of gray in between.

I am a free-thinker, am blessed w/a wonderful life and have never called a housewife or fellow poster(s) hateful names.  Just given my opinions of behavior (good&bad) I've viewed, respectfully as possible.  I tend to agree w/some of your statements yet realize this is an 'open-forum' w/varied opinions.

Curious - Are you the same twiddledeedum that in a different HW blog didn't like my comment regarding a favorite HWife of yours...calling me a "Liar"  (A person, BTW, you don't know).   When I provided the accurate source, suggesting you research before calling people names.....you didn't respond.  

Have you ever heard the saying about "people in glass houses throwing stones"?

@Jerj I just read her book and it is the same "victim" stuff she builds her brand on. The only thing interesting about her is her ex husband cheating. She's nothing without it.

@gessie  Sure do. She thought that the mean girl behavior would improve herself in the standings of RHOBH. But in reality it is backfiring on her so she is trying to save face for book sales. PATHETIC!

@lorelye  Brandi doesn't get embarrassed by ANYTHING...otherwise she wouldn't be so white trash on the show.  She is an embarrassment.  That is why everyone keeps leaving her.  GO AWAY BRANDI..you are foulmouthed and trash!

@lizalou  That is not true. If you go to the emergency room, you will get the bill just like everyone else.

Nightengale

@lizalou

Oh for god's sake, ashamed? What do you mean that you the taxpayer has to pay for it? Did you get a bill? I know 3 people who refuse to go to the Dr or to the ER because they are stubborn and don't understand the nuances of letting an injury go too long. Brandi is obviously the same type personality and doesn't need to be scolded by anyone for it.

@Cryslynns When Brandi walks in the room you can bet there will be a STFU in the next 5 minutes regardless of where she is!  Tacky.

@Nightengale @lizalou Ya know it kills me, Brandi claims she could not afford to go to the ER, but she was offering a $10,000 reward for her lost dog!

@southernbelle25 @Nightengale @lizalou

I never said otherwise, so I am not sure what you mean. I gave an example of my friends who always give a million of excuses why they don't go to the doctor so I am at a loss why they are so dam stubborn, same as Brandi.
