Brandi: I Was Surprised Adrienne Was So Receptive

Brandi explains why now was the time to apologize to Adrienne, plus she talks about her complicated history with J.R.

By Brandi Glanville

I'm moving yet again! Grrr...luckily I have amazing movers, MeatHead Movers. This moving company hires college athletes to work to make money on their summer breaks. All the movers were cute, sweaty, and fun to watch, but I did click with one more than the others... Jake Ryan.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.


My best friend Mark took moving day to another level with his ab contest. It was all in good fun and gave us all a chance to take a little break. My girlfriend Adrienne imediately noticed Jake Ryans initials and pointed out that I might have a soft spot for these two letters J.R.

Speaking of J.R., (my on-again-off-again real estate agent boyfriend) as everyone knows, last year when our group went to Puerto Rico I invited J.R. to join us, but he said he had to stay home and work and that he couldn't afford to travel. Right after he said that he told me he was in love with me. I guess I was silly to assume that meant we were a couple.While we were in Puerto Rico, J.R. said he needed to go to his favorite place in Italy to have a much needed vacation...Um yes, I was confused also. He flew to Italy and had an affair. When he told me about the affair, I tried to make excuses for him and even forgave him.We were an on-again-off-again couple until I left for The Celebrity Apprentice. We were out of touch for the weeks I was in NYC shooting. I returned home from NYC, and the woman he had the affair with was now living here from Europe in my town.

Kim decides we should stalk J.R., because in her head, if I were to see him with the "other woman" then I will somehow get completely over him. It didn't really make sense to me, but I was sure it would be an adventure. I honestly have never stalked anyone before, but I assumed we would be wearing black and trying to go unnoticed. I arrive at Kim's house, and she is wearing a bright yellow shirt, white jeans, and tons of jewels and tells me she has costumes for us to put on. I'm game, because we always have fun together, though I'm not really sure that I want to see J.R. with the "other woman," but at least I have Jake Ryan to keep my mind off the deceit and heart break. As I have always said, "If he cheats with you, he will cheat on you," so I decide to try and put J.R. (the older one) in my past once and for all (or so I thought).

When I see David walk into his kitchen to find Yolanda in lingerie all I can say is wow! She has a perfect body and David is one lucky man. There is not one ounce of fat on Yolanda's body when she is complaining to her housekeeper, but i get it. We are all our own worst critics. I really see that Yolanda and I feel the same way about Kim. She is a sweet soul, and we kind of feel like we need to take care of her in a way. Kim has a lot on her plate and we want to be there for her.

Observing Lisa Rinna at lunch with her agent, I can tell what a really hard worker and hustler she is. There is no shame in her game, and I like it! She is a mama bear taking care of her cubs and will do whatever it takes to provide. Having been married to an actor, I know show business is. It's very fickle. One minute you're hot, the next you're not, and sometimes you do things that you may not always be proud of to make a buck. I like Lisa at this point.


In the news of the other ladies, it was lovely to see Kyle's family go on yet another vacation, and I'm thrilled to know that Lisa V. now has two housekeepers.

I'm in a pretty good headspace in my life after the experiences I've been through over the last year, and I'm ready to make peace with Adrienne Maloof. I run into her often, and it is very uncomfortable to know and see someone and not even say a simple hello. I decided to ask Adrienne to go for coffee when I saw her at the annual White Party, hoping we could clear the air, and I wanted to apologize for my part in our argument. I 100% take full responsibility for what I said. I shouldn't have said it, and I will not say it again. I was very surprised and happy that Adrienne was so receptive to moving forward with me. In this group it's very important to keep your own voice and not pick sides. I have learned my lesson and now say hello to Adrienne every time I run into her.
