Us Weekly: Brandi Glanville and Gerard Butler are “friends with benefits”


Last week, there was a report that made my soul ache a little bit. Allegedly, Brandi Glanville and Gerard Butler had a “steamy” makeout session in Malibu two weekends ago. At the time, it sounded like just one of G-But’s many, many random conquests. He makes out with everybody. That’s part of his charm. He will come up to you on the street and try to lick you. I love him.

But! This week’s Us Weekly has a source (Brandi herself, I suspect) who claims that Gerry and Brandi aren’t just one-time makeout buddies. The source claims that Gerard and Brandi are friends with benefits. Or, as Gerard says, “Who?”

Undercover lovers: Brandi Glanville, 38, was spotted making out with Gerard Butler, 41, in Malibu August 27 – and a source tells Hot Stuff it wasn’t the first time!

“She’s messed around with him on and off since leaving Eddie Cibrian,” the insider shares.

Still, the two are keeping it casual.

“They’re friends with benefits. Neither takes the other seriously!”

[From Us Weekly, print edition]

Brandi needs to take a step back. I know many of you like her and everything, and yes, she’s got my sympathy, and yes, I think it’s funny/sad that LeAnn Rimes basically wants to BE Brandi to the point of a major case of Single White Female-ing. But Brandi needs to back off The Butler, whether or not this is true. If it is true, how much will I hate Gerard for boning a Botox-faced Real Housewife? And if it’s not true, how much will I hate Brandi for trying to use my precious Butler for her nefarious sexual escapades? Plus, Brandi isn’t even his type. He likes darker girls. And younger girls, I hate to say. No, this doesn’t work for me at all.

    I will gladly give up my Butler rights if this is true. Brandi deserves to be happy after what she went through.
    Go Brandi!

  2. Pyewacket says:

    Who really cares? I wouldn’t be too flattered if I were her, being Butler’s eff piece, as it is well known he pretty much screws anything with a vagina.

  3. whitedaisy says:

    When doesn’t this man look like he needs a shower?
    I know, I know, Kaiser. You’ll take care of that problem….

  4. ambergesa says:

    A. he’s gross and B. I don’t think he cares much about darker or younger he just seems to like girls, in total, as a whole(or hole works too) ;)

  5. zephyr says:

    O Kaiser, get over it. Butler’s a lecher who won’t take No for an answer. I have no evidence but an account on another site by a waitress who was harassed by him made my blood boil.

  6. Jezi says:

    @Kaiser Hahahaha!!! It’s probably bullshit. I’m sure Gerard has a huge black book…so no worries.

  7. Rita says:


    I’m 100% with you on this Glanville chick. Not only should she step-back, she should step-off. I personally feel the same way about Stacy Keibler sidling up to my bff George.

    As I’m sure you will agree, this has nothing to do with envy. It’s about celebrity boning etiquette. There is a line, and it forms behind me. Sure, Brandi is tall with legs up to here (note I have my hand under my chin but I’m sitting down so you do the math), she’s extremely pretty, and gracious but she has children so G-Butt should not be doing any of that face licking stuff in public.

    PS-@brin- You have Butler rights? Have you been licked in public? I mean face-licked.

  8. Liz says:

    I’m with everyone else’s statement above pretty much, especially @Pyewacket. How and why is it suddenly that she’s the ‘lucky’ one? The man is disgusting.

  9. deb says:

    If this is true a BIG STANDING OVATION to
    Brandi. In my opinion after the very public shit sandwich she was handed why shouldn’t she have some fun?

  10. mia girl says:

    What is the benefit of an STD?

  11. Jayna says:

    I used to love him, but he’s a sleazy whoredog. Even playboys have long term relationships at times. Not him. He’s always out just picking up skanks. I wouldn’t let him touch me with a ten-foot pole.

  12. brin says:

    @Rita…only in my wild dreams.
    *Mornin peeps*

  13. Praise St. Angie! says:

    GD, Rita, you make me laugh.

    I think he’s got a type, darker girls, as you say, but he also just likes girls in general.

    I like “darker” guys, that is, darker hair and eyes, but there are a few blonds that def do it for me, too.


    so, I could see this.

  14. Rita says:

    OMG, Jezi’s attempt to put down this story all but confirms it’s true and one only has to look at the destiny of “karma” and the tags that will accompany this blessed union:

    Glanville-Butler: G-Butt (It’s already begun)

    Children of Brandi and Butler: The BB’s (Freaking diabolical or is it diabiological?)

    What about the “B-G’s (Could they make a come back)

    How about Butville, Gerandi, or the Glanlerator…okay that last one is a bit of a strech but you get my drift. The moon is in the 7th house and the stars are aligned for this union.

  15. Chloe says:

    Isn’t Butler friends with benefits with EVERY WOMAN HE KNOWS?

  16. cmc says:

    Actually don’t have a problem with this either…get some, Brandi!

  17. Jezi says:

    @Rita…lmao!!! Sorry, wish I knew if it was true or not. I would hate to even ask Brandi…don’t want to be all up in her biz like that. But if it is, more power to her. Nice play toy.

  18. brin says:

    Hmmm..all those trips to Malibu…must be lots of motion in that ocean.

  19. Susan O. says:

    Both used up and worn looking. Ick

  20. irishserra says:

    Isn’t he STD-infested?? (Per blind item)

  21. original kate says:

    gross – she can have him.

  22. sapphire says:

    @Rita, that’s hilarious!

    Ok, the dude’s a major hound dog but there’s something that keeps the ladies around. BG should have some fun, no?

  23. JuJuBee says:

    Hmmm…I’m starting to really believe that he is gay. The man is never with a woman publicly. Ever! Can anyone name one ex girlfriend? Secondly, he is always around men. Every freaking shot of him is always with other men. At house parties, not a woman in sight. None of his friends have wives or girlfriends? Even when Clooney (who has been plagued by the gay rumors for eons)hangs out with friends, it includes the SO of his pals. Even Clooney has had very public girlfriends. I think Butler has a lot of smoke and mirrors going on. No bachelor that I have ever met, is that much of a bachelor.

  24. madpoe says:

    Well…he hasn’t made out with me…how long is this waiting list? Is he going through the blondes first or what I need to know lol.

  25. Sigh. says:

    She was on twitter basically putting him down since this (non) incident.

    This is pure PR BS to boost ratings while he trolls for Oscar noms. They’re trying to make it seem like if we tune in, we *might* spot her sneaking around with him (because this would have to happen while was filming, right?).

  26. lisa says:

    It’s totally false if what someone calling themselves nothing but the truth on the hollywood gossip site said happened the day after the alledged make out session. he’s not returning her calls because of this and quite frankly I don’t blame him. She’s trash, and he deserves better.

  27. Denise says:

    All that whoring is taking it’s toll; Butler is looking like a mangy mutt these days.

  28. Blake says:

    She has a pretty hot body, especially for 38.

  29. why? says:


    How do you know that GB isn’t returning BG calls? Is that something that LR told you?

    BG is trash? Oh I get it, LR and EC are getting slammed for their latest staged photo-op in NYC (which they knew was going to happen since they paraded those kids around at the fair for their personal benefit) and now you think you can make it better by slamming BG?

    Used up and worn looking, isn’t that what people have been saying about LR in the toga dress she went attention seeking in yesterday?

  30. why? says:

    Wow, did anyone see EC latest interview from his Charisma event?

    This is what he said in regards to the kids and the beach: “And, Cibrian adds, all these outings to the beach are really more for the kids than the paparazzi.”

    Is it me or is he blaming the kids for why they are spotted on the beach all the time? No it’s not because his wife is shilling bikinis and desperate for attention, but because the kids want to go? So if they go to the beach for the kids, why then was one child hiding while EC and LR were too busy papping themselves out? If it was all about the kids then what was all that pda and drinking for?

    And LR made sure that he “defended” her honor AGAIN. He doesn’t understand why LR is being criticized and like a good paid gigolo he made sure to say that she looks great(not perfect this time). So how come LR is SWF BG then? There would be no need to SWF, if EC truly liked the way that LR looked. And he thinks she looks great showing off her implants to his kids?

    So once again LR turns another event into an article about their relationship. Why would she need to use this event to validate their relationship? EC is cheating.

  31. taxi says:

    Never heard of Brandi. Is she a D lister ex-starlet trying to make C?

    As far as young & dark, Anniston is neither.

    Doesn’t he have herpes?

    I did love him in “Phantom of the Opera” but the crush wore off fast because of douche-y behavior.

  32. Liamarie says:

    About 10% of what you read about GB is true.

  33. AM says:

    I hope they are double checking their protection look what happened to Benicio Del Toro and his “friends with benefits” Kimbo Stewart lol.

  34. lisa says:

    Susan O

    The Hollywood Gossip. A comment made by ‘Nothing but the Truth’ claimed to be a friend of one of them. And revealed what Brandi had texted all her friends about him after the non existent make out session. And because of this vile text apparently he’s not returning her calls.Good for him.

  35. seVen says:

    Love her outfit in these pics.

    Butler is gross and probably a STD specialists ( if there is a thing) wet dream with all the fungi hes got growing down there.

  36. crtb says:

    She is as stupid as she is ugly!

  37. wtf? says:


    god what next he will be on Dancing With the Stars,or shagging Kate Gosselin

    the man is getting harder to adore while he adore’s getting harder

  38. why? says:


    Wow, what a shame. You are going to redeem EC and LR by any means necessary? So now you are posting as NBT on the HW Gossip site, and that person sounds a lot like SusanO/irena. Didn’t you pull the same thing when you were going by irena, you tried to get people to dislike BG by stating that EC and BG had been cheating when he was engaged to another woman?

    That is so funny. At first I thought that this story may have come from BG, but now we have a poster going around talking about how a “mutual friend” of BG and LR is talking about how BG sent her friends a text about GB and that is why GB “dumped her”. This sounds a lot like the Star mag article about how EC and LR marriage is in crisis because a “source”(Leann Rimes) claims that BG is sending LR mean notes via her kids, which LR “fans” then claimed that LR showed them.

    So LR and EC are going to stage another photo-op, get slammed for doing so, and then try to fix it by blaming others for daring to comment on their attention seeking. Here is what one blogger had to say about EC and LR presence at fashion week: “LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian managed an invite (a customer is a customer in this economy, we suppose)”.

    See, these two are not respected.

    LR finally got the media to notice that she released her video to Give, and it only took how many articles from her mouthpieces and staged photo-ops with EC kids?

  39. Kelly says:

    He is kinda gross but he is too good for her. I guess I just don’t “get it” with her, why she is famous, why some people think she is attractive, etc.

  40. theaPie says:

    Ugh. Cheek and lip injections much?

  41. Maddy says:

    Gerard is breaking my heart with this trashy looking woman. Gerry you can do better!!!

  42. Memphis says:

    If it’s true who the hell could blame her? He’s hot AND he has an accent (I’m a sucker for an accent.) Although I do prefer the Tomb Raider/Dear Frankie era Butler to his more recent look.

  43. why? says:

    Just a word of advice, one of LR “fans” is on another site making posts in other posters names and she is here in this thread using other posters names to make posts here.

    She also stated that she has been reporting our posts on this site to get them deleted.

  44. why? says:

    Leann and Eddie set up another staged photo-op and once again they are shocked by the fact that they are not getting a warm reception from the public. What part of: NO ONE likes them, do they not understand? Do they think that bombarding the media/internet/tabloids with Daily photos or mutiple shots of them in one day will convince their employers that they are in demand or that people will learn to like them the more we see their faces? Or did they just buy into the hype that they paid their mouthpieces to create?

  45. Susan O. says:

    It does look like she has had cheek implants. There’s vehement denial but she has put up photos of her as a little girl, teen and young woman. Compare…definitely looks like cheek implants to me. She’s prettier than the other women on RHOBH but most of them are hideous. Why disfigure the face in the cause of beauty? It’s too obvious and looks more freakish than anything else.
    Butler isn’t ready for a long term but if he were he’d pick someone younger. She needs more stability for her kids than he could offer.

  46. Guest says:

    Post didtn show up..Susan O i thought you claimed you didnt care about the LR EC BG saga but your behind is still parked on this thread..i doubt brandi is looking for a new daddy now, shes just having least she isnt sleeping with married sure you saw brandi’s gorgeous modeling pics..leann wishes she looked like that at that age..if leann is already messing up with her body now, boobs, extreme weight loss, i dont even want to think about how many surgeries she will have at brandis then serial cheater eddie would have cheated on her like he always does..we are talking about a guy who slept with THREE women at the same time..player player

  47. Mary jones says:

    Who cares about this D lister. She looks like a wrinkled leather bag.

  48. why? says:


    Seriously, if it takes this much to redeem LR and EC then perhaps they should LAY LOW. So I take it LR and EC second staged photo-op in NYC isn’t getting a favorable response from the public and because they are very bright they are going to stage yet another photo-op to fix it, but before they do it, they have to fix it by trashing BG?

    Speaking of stability, what do you think of EC blaming his kids for why they are spotted on the beach all the time? Who does that? LR used those kids just so that she could get FREE bikini’s and EC has the nerve to say that they were on that beach because the kids like being on the beach.

    LR disfigured her face and her body, so what is your point? Didn’t LR get new teeth, a nose job, and now it looks like LR is using Botox.

  49. eileen says:

    I hope she got some! He’s yummy!
    Brandi has had those cheeks from day 1-she’s half indian. When she was in her 20′s her face was fuller because when your in your 20′s you have more fat in your face-now she’s almost 40 and you don’t have all the fullness….which is why some HW’s fill their face up with fillers and they look like a bloated deer in headlights. So she chooses not to do that and she gets ripped-damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

  50. Sue says:

    This woman is a no body trying to become a fame whore on this shity ass reality show, I agree she does look like she has Cheek and lip injections.

  51. why? says:

    Just when you think that EC and LR can’t stoop any lower.

    So to prove to EVERYONE that they are in demand and that the media LOVES taking photos of them because they are “popular”, LR has put out a story about how the paps where going nuts at one of the fashion events just to get a photo of EC and LR. The article stated that the paps were pushing and shoving everyone just to get to EC and LR and they even compared it to the press that Justin Bieber receives.

    So once again this is a case of LR reading what we are saying about her on these blogs(ie-her and EC presence at fashion week wasn’t accepted, someone even made stated that they were invited just so that they could spend money) and then fixing it. So how much did she have to dish out for this special treatment from the paps because we know she sets up side deals with them. It always amazes me just how far LR will go to try to validate her relationship with EC and herself. But then again it makes sense why she has to resort to creating this buzz. She and EC lack the fanbase needed to make their projects a success.

    She even tweeted to Julianna H and asked her to go out with her and EC, as if she is trying to get in good with ENEWS so that they won’t post anything negative about her.

    LR is going to be on AGT next week, so you know what that means. She is going to set up “devoted” stepmother photos with EC kids.

    Things must not be going well for EC and LR since someone still is trying to redeem EC and LR by attacking BG.

  52. Susan O. says:

    Brandi tweeted today, or last night, that her boobs are fake but her teeth are for real.

  53. tripmom says:

    Can someone explain this whole Brandi Glanville thing to me? Where did this waxy faced 50 year old looking thing come from, and how has she managed to hook up with so many famous dudes? She’s barely on imdb. It’s not like she has a career or anything, she’s just famous for being dumped and blabbing about it to the press. Who is impressed by that? How did she and Cibrian even hook up in the first place? Where did this chick come from?

  54. Vesper says:

    @ Why – Did u notice that the story is about Brandi and Gerard NOT Leann. Can’t help but notice most of ur posts are about Leann.

    @ eileen – Not sure why u can say that Brandi has not done anything to her face with such conviction. When I googled older pics of Brandi she does look different. Her cheeks and especially her lips are plumper and she definitely has implants.

    I don’t see Brandi lasting with anyone in Hollywood. The woman looks, and speaks like trash. She seems as dumb as a rock too.

  55. why? says:


    Leann tweets about another woman’s kids, so what is your point?

    Wow, more attacks against BG? And you know what that means? LR and EC staged yet another photo-op or LR? Or even better all their attention seeking at Fashion Week is being met with a ton of backlash and critism.

    Did you notice that whenever LR and EC are getting heavily slammed by the public ro gearing up to release a staged photo-op, someone thinks that they can fix it by using mutiple different names to trash BG. So that was why the topic of EC and LR came up. EC and LR are not getting a good reception from the public, which once again coincides with presence of these “I hate BG” posters. The more backlash EC and LR get, well you see what happens.

    So let me guess, NBC/Playboy Club is not sure that EC is going to last in HW and many people think that both him and LR look like trash everytime they staged a photo-op. EC is also being called dumb.

    BTW, do you want to know why EC blamed his kids for them being spotted on the beach? Because he released photos of him and his youngest son to OK and In Touch magazine. What a shame that a grown man has to use two innocent kids to make it in HW.

  56. why? says:

    Why oh why is camp Leann so predicable?
    Camp LR release TWO staged photo-ops today. Surprise, surprise, surprise, LR is also doing radio interviews, which once again explains the presence of the “neutral”/”I hate BG” posters.

    In one of staged photos, EC is out and about NYC by himself. Yes by himself. Which is odd because we never see EC out and about by himself. Once again why does LR take cues from what people are posting on these sites? If she trusts that EC will be faithful to her she shouldn’t have to wait until people tease her about she never let’s EC out of her site, to let EC out of her site.

    The 2nd staged photo is of LR doing Radio Stations interviews. LR is probably wearing a dress that EC supposedly “picked” out. Because LR latest attempt is to convince us that EC cares about her and because he cares about her, then he won’t cheat on her, EC is telling people that he gives LR fashion advice. Isn’t that a bit odd though, LR SWF BG. If EC is giving LR fashion adivce, then that means that EC is dressing LR like BG? Why would he do that? Why would he want his new wife to look like his ex-wife? That makes EC creepy, right?

    Leann released the video to Give last week(because she had several media outlets write fluff pieces about it and even had ENEWs play it on their station on Friday), but now she is having her fav mouthpiece claim that she released it TODAY. That is odd that she would lie about when she released the video.

    So LR and EC at Fashion Week was just just another publicity to make it look like EC and LR are “popular” because it appears that their projects are suffering more than what they are willing to admit.

  57. why? says:

    Apparently I must have hit the nail on the head. I said that EC is cheating on LR, well something must have happened over the weekend because this sent camp Leann into a frenzy. Be careful because Vesper/susano is on the rampage, she is attackinging anyone whom she thinks is me.

  58. John Wayne Lives says:

    Now Brandi can add “Butlerwhore” to her resume along with “Famewhore”. Girls a winner!!!
    Go get it indeed! Obviously you DO deserved it! lol

  59. why? says:

    I take it Leann staged yet another photo-op?

    It must have backfired.

  60. Vesper says:

    @ Why? – I made one post, period. I am not going on a “rampage” nor did I “attack” u. I am not a fan of Leann or a “hater” of Brandi, however I do have the right to express a negative comment without being labelled as such.

    I have been using one user name since I discovered this site just over one year ago. I have posted numerious comments on other threads that have nothing to do with Leann, Eddie or Brandi.

    BTW, u posted 11 messages on this thread alone. So really, which one of us is on a rampage?

  61. why? says:

    Vesper/Susan O

    So let me guess Leann Rimes is gearing up for a MAJOR MEGA MEDIA BLITZ, staging 3-5 different photo-ops in just one day?

  62. why? says:

    Leann took her bonus sons to AGT with her and EC,so you know what that means?

    Just as predicted, STAGED “happy family”, “devoted stepmother” “devoted father” photo-ops in 3, 2, 1.

    Now where is LR compassion as she continues to exploit those kids?

  63. annfair says:

    Why…..You might want to get some help…an opinion is one thing,you seem to be falling over the edge.You don’t even know these people and they will never know you.Your peace of mind will be better if you stop trying to live your life through them.Move on and make a life for yourself.

  64. Doc says:

    I don’t know how much of the rhwobh is set up. Are they assigned roles? If not Bradi is a just total bitch with zero class. On a recent show she suggested to Kyle that at her party she wanted to invite a porn star to demonstrate how to do BJs. Brandi if you would had already known about them your marriage may have been saved.

  65. Samantha says:

    Can someone explain to me the frst picture??????… I mean his pants
