Brandi Glanville, rogue star of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” reluctantly took to her Bravo blog to discuss her take on the first installment of the reunion show.
“I was almost out the door to watch my littlest actor perform a one “boy” play when I found out I have to blog the reunion! I was out last night with TV execs so didn’t get to see all of it–bet you’d like to have been a fly on the wall during that dinner. Ha! Well, since I didn’t know I had to blog, this may be a little late. Sorry!”
One might wonder why Brandi didn’t know she had to blog since the reunion show is the pinnacle of the entire season. Brandi explains there’s one thing that’s bothering her (just one?) and that concern is her comment about Bella, Yolanda’s daughter, being an alcoholic.
“I had seen a few unfair and untrue HW blogs take false potshots at the young lady in question, the same type of untrue potshots that are thrown at me. I was trying to say, ‘When a stranger tries to label someone something ugly, even if the allegation isn’t true, it can still sting, annoy, and cause a defensive reaction.’”
Brandi “absolutely” insists Kyle Richards told her that Lisa Vanderpump had an affair and filed for bankruptcy. Here’s what Brandi said about the ladies’ true friendship.
“What’s odd is that Lisa V. and Kyle obviously don’t like each other and have nothing in common. Lisa V. is quick and smart. Kyle is slow and not smart. They use each other, backstab each other, and mock each other every chance they get. However, they do like to get together and pretend to be “classy” ladies, boast about money, and plot together.”
According to Brandi, her BFF, Kim Richards, was “great, strong, on point and funny” during the reunion and she thanked Andy for defending her, though she didn’t understand the puppy analogy. As for how grueling filming one of these reunion shows can be, Brandi explains what she goes through.
“You have no idea how difficult it is to have people screaming at you from two sides and to remain calm. In similar situations, you can walk away. I don’t have that option very often on RHOBH. If you know me, you know I’ve been diagnosed with anxiety, so it is what it is. Stress me out past my comfort zone, F- bombs fly.”
As for Part two, Brandi said this, “It gets better or worse–that’s for you to decide.”
Maybe we’ll see the “vindication” Brandi promised.
