“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, Brandi Glanville busted onto the reality scene as a tossed aside ex-wife and mother, a little rough around the edges, but a likable enough underdog. She quickly bonded with fan favorite, Lisa Vanderpump, who good-naturedly took the scarred housewife under her wing, to teach her some simple, marginally classy, self-control.
The rejected attempt was short lived, and with the manipulative twists and turns reality TV takes, combined with lots of booze and a filthy, unrestrained mouth, a massive loss of fan support was triggered. Most viewers went from cheering to booing, disgusted by Brandi’s endless vulgarity, and low-rent antics, clamoring for Bravo’s Beverly Hills to leave the gutter, and return to a place of high end glamour.
It appears that the network finally got the message, evidenced by yesterday’s announcement of Glanville’s dismissal. Brandi claimed that she had “a decision to make” while leading viewers to believe via Twitter, that she was in the Bravo driver’s seat. “I woke up with a sore throat and a HUGE decision to make today! #RHOBH Will let you all know later I promise!!”
The “decision” is widely believed to be whether or not Glanville would accept a demotion from full-time housewife, to one who makes only occasional appearances. Twitter and blogs lit up when the news of the firing was released, with the overwhelming response being one of internet celebration, and relieved joy at Bravo finally acting on mass viewer opinion.
While most viewers were rejoicing, some loyal Brandi fans still exist, and chimed in with some words of support.
What should Bravo’s next move be, now that the two biggest Beverly Hills reality train wrecks, Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville, have been given the boot?
