If you were hoping for former flames Brandi Glanville and Gerard Butler to get back together, we've got some bad news for you. After Butler seemed embarrassed to talk about his past fling with Brandi on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last week, she has penned a fiery response to the movie star on her blog, Bicoastal Beauty Unfiltered.
Brandi shared that she has been inspired by the #MeToo and Time's Up movements to speak out about Butler's comments, although she made it clear that no sexual misconduct took place between her and Butler. "I would like to make something crystal f---ing clear to you, your behavior the other night, publicly acting as if you were embarrassed to have ever met me or had relations with me as if I were some horrid decrepit troll is not only disgusting but unacceptable. #Timesup on this kind of behavior. Just a little advice for you moving forward Scorpio to Scorpio: Respect the women you invite into your bed and into your life. Whether you know their last name or not! Whether they are famous or not! Just be a proper human being," Brandi wrote in the blog post published on January 22. "With the Me Too movement I have found my voice again and I refuse to stay quiet. I may not have been sexually harassed but I have been humiliated, embarrassed, financially tortured and emotionally abused by men in power, in my work life and by men like you in my personal life."
Brandi went on to explain why she initially brought up Butler when asked to name the most famous person she's hooked up with on WWHL in 2012. "At that time you were kind of a big thing so I said your name. I then was asked on a scale from 1-10 what would I rate you as a lover. I very kindly said an 11. I was completely caught off guard obviously not expecting any of these questions and the moment after I answered them I regretted it," she shared. "So the rating of an 11 I gave you as a lover was a knee jerk reaction peace offering for having blurted out your name. I could have actually just told the truth."
Butler said in the January 17 episode of WWHL that he had "no idea" Brandi was on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when he first met her years ago. "And I kept saying, 'What do you do?' She goes, 'It doesn't matter. It's not important,'" he told Andy Cohen. "Anyway, we hung out, we had fun, and then I never saw her again. Suddenly, I was walking down the street with a director and these guys from TMZ go, 'Hey, what about you and Brandi Glanville?' And I'm like, 'Who's Brandi Glanville?' because I didn't even know her last name ... She got pretty upset."
Brandi wrote in her blog post that she "never sought out" a life in the public eye, which she now has. "The truth is that because of my inability to put up with other people’s bullsh--, not think before I speak and fight back hardcore during a very ugly, very public, very devastating and heart crippling divorce, I was catapulted into the whirlwind of reality [TV]," she said. "If been given the choice I’d rather be f---ing happily married to a 'faithful' Eddie Cibrian quietly-ish raising our 2 beautiful boys [sons Mason, 14, and Jake, 10] with no cameras other than the ones he worked in front of."
She also explained why she didn't tell Butler her last name or that she was a cast member on RHOBH. "When I’m out at a party and someone walks up to me and says hi what’s your name, like most people I simply say 'hi I’m Brandi nice to meet you.' Furthermore if you have to tell someone you’re famous…you’re not only an ---hole but you clearly are not that f---ing famous!!!" Brandi wrote. "So Gerry are you saying that had you known I was on reality [TV] that you would not have approached me and asked for my number??"
Brandi ended her post by expressing some regret about her past "little week of fun" with Butler. "For the record I am now embarrassed to have ever known you," she said. "I think you suck and my dad wants to kick your ass."
Butler has not yet responded to Brandi's comments. However, he has shown his support for the Time's Up movement. "I stand in solidarity with my colleagues at the #GoldenGlobes tonight and women across every industry to say #TimesUp," he posted on Instagram on January 7. "I signed the @TimesUpNow solidarity letter and donated to the Legal Defense Fund which will provide subsidized legal support for women and men across all industries who have been victims of sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace."
