Brandi Glanville will be a ‘special fashion correspondent’ at the Oscars

These are some photos of Brandi Glanville at the Family Equality Council ‘Los Angeles Award Dinner 2013′ last Friday. I’m sorry I didn’t get around to publishing these before today! For what it’s worth, Brandi’s LBD is pretty boring and she looks pretty much the same as she always does.

Brandi is still doing press for her book, which comes out today and which I think will probably be a decent money-maker for her. A lot of people are sympathetic towards her and she’s spent the past few weeks leaking a lot of juicy stuff from the book, and now people will want to read it to see if there’s any more dirt in there. Plus, Brandi is keeping up the feud with She Who Shall Not Be Named on her Twitter, writing: “The truth is I will one day (when they are grown) tell my kids everything anyhow, but until then I will protect them with my whole heart… What’s worse doing these things to the mother of ur children or me writing about?? I guess its ok for him just not for me.”

In other Brandi news, there’s still endless drama between Brandi and Adrienne Maloof. I don’t have the energy to try to figure out what’s happening, so just go here for a decent recap. Also!! Brandi just got a really amazing gig – she’s been added to ABC’s “On the Red Carpet to the Oscars” team as a “special fashion correspondent.” I’m not sure if this means that Brandi’s going to the Oscars as someone who will interviews stars on the carpet, or if she’s just doing, like, analysis of the clothes from a distance. Brandi said: “I’m so excited to be part of this because I’ve always been a spectator on my couch at home watching it, and to actually be there and see the stars as they arrive, I’m super excited.”

    I watch RHOBH and I like Brandi. She is honest to a fault and sometimes says things she probably shouldn’t, but she seems ok.

  2. vvvoid says:

    I hope her book does really well.

  3. Meow Mix says:

    Leanne melt down in 3..2..1..

  4. Dani says:

    I really hope that in spite of everything, Brandi get her shit together for the sake of her children. She wants to be open with them regarding the situation with Eddie, and be the bigger person and protect them, but then she goes on RHOBH and behaves the way she does, attacks people etc. I get that she went through a lot and it’s hard for her, but in order to be the bigger person you have to act like the bigger person. Even if it means putting your foot in your mouth and keeping quiet here and there.

    • Samantha says:

      I couldn’t agree with you more. She doesn’t deserve to be rewarded. she’s just as bad as Leanne and Eddie

      • Lady D says:

        Disagree. Brandi kept her mouth shut for years while being the victim of a SWF’er. She was treated with complete contempt and cruelty at the hands of her ex and his new stable addition/spouse. I still say it’s about gd time Brandi spoke up. I was starting to get a little disgusted with Brandi. It was like, why aren’t you protecting your children from this psycho or at least speaking up? Leanne has worked very hard to destroy B’s life, I hope this book makes her head explode. Just think, after today everywhere Falcor goes, people are going to be whispering and talking about her. It’s a good thing she likes attention because her crazy is about to go mainstream.

      • Dani says:

        Lady D – While you DO make a good point, it also comes off a major Leanne hater. I don’t care for either, but when Brandi is spewing BS non stop about caring for her kids and being the bigger person, she sure as hell isn’t acting like it. There is nothing wrong with speaking up and defending yourself, but Brandi goes overboard. Yes, Leanne is a psycho but she’s not the one ‘protecting’ her kids.

      • kudzuqueen says:

        The quieter Brandi was, the more outlandish Leann behaved on twitter. Leann was out of control. I can see exactly why Brandi started speaking out. Leann was not going to stop until Brandi was down and she “owned” Brandi’s children. Period.

    • LAK says:

      i watch RHOBH religiously. love it, love the craziness, and clearly everyone needs to sit down. except of course my Lady Lisa.

      And i can categorically say that Brandi is the least offensive person on that show. F-Bombs and all. On a personal note i wish she didn’t use them at all, but that’s her and i sincerely hope that Lisa will rub off on her as far as language is concerned. Also, many of these ladies offended by Brandi’s language have used the same language on earlier episodes long before Brandi showed up, so i guess their PR has asked them to refrain and behave all holier than though. We know one lady definitely listens to her publicist hence the complete character presentation change from season 1 to following seasons.

      The other ladies keep re-writing what Brandi has allegedly said in order to keep the drama going and to make themselves look good. One need only re-watch the old episodes of stuff Brandi has been accused of saying to see the lies.

      Last week’s episode had one lady say something in a group situation, but then recountered the conversation with the very same words she, herself used, being spoken by Brandi!!!!

      It’s been a concerted effort to bully Brandi from the minute she arrived on the show when they laughed at her,made fun of her leg cast and called her all sorts of names. Game night anyone??!!! And they harrangue her so much that she’s taken to apologising when she doesn’t have to.

      She’s ALWAYS the bigger person on that show.

      Only last week, one person got selective amnesia when confronted with the truth, but then took Brandi aside in the corridor to admit that what she was being accused of was the truth, she was simply embarrassed at being called out for it.

      Those ladies in RHOBH are too much and thank goodness for Brandi.

      • Dani says:

        I’m not talking about the show only, mostly Brandi in general, and how the show makes her come off in addition to the way she is. I do agree that some of them are even worse, but too much botox does that to you.

      • LAK says:

        @Dani – you original post threw shade at Brandi’s behaviour on the show:

        “but then she goes on RHOBH and behaves the way she does, attacks people etc”

        And then your subsequent rebuttal:

        “how the show makes her come off”

        …. which clearly demonstrates that you don’t watch the show because it’s not as simple as the other ladies behave worse or Brandi is getting a bitch edit or Brandi attacking the others. She isn’t getting a bitch edit nor does she attack the other ladies. She does get yelled at alot by people who turn it around to say she was the one behaving badly…..

        Brandi has proven to be a well liked character on all the online communities that comment on this show including the Bravo TV cast blogs.

        And if you do watch the show, you must be the only person who thinks she comes off badly.

        The details of her catfight with LR don’t look good, but on the show she is very likable.

  5. Jennifer says:

    Just got through watching Brandi on the Today show. It’s great to see her getting her truth out there after having to stomach Leann’s and Eddie’s lies.

    If Eddie and Leann had been decent human beings, Brandi would have never had anything to write about regarding them. They brought all this on themselves.

    Way to go Brandi! It must be very liberating to write about all that went down and to be able to close that chapter of her life.

  6. Cat says:

    So she gets to go to the Oscars before her ex, the actor? Awesome. He’ll probably never get to go (unless he’s escorting someone else).

  7. Samigirl says:

    Damn. What’s sad is that is the closest Eddie will EVER get to an Oscar!

    I posted it on the LR bangs trauma thread, but I totally have the book open on one monitor at work. I’m 23% through with it. And I’ve only been kind of reading it for an hour and 43 minutes. It WILL get finished today!

  8. brin says:

    Today’s my birthday and this book is such a great gift! Love ya, Brandi!!

  9. Blondie says:

    Yay for Brandi!!! I am so happy for her. I can’t wait to read her book, and now she’s getting decent work. I wonder how has beens Leeann and Eddie will take the news. It’s not so funny now Leeann and Eddie is it?

  10. Relli says:

    A forum to discuss RHWBH….HOORAY!

    I caught the end of the episode last night and wow is that Jocelyn Wildenstein wannabe a piece of work. As per usz Shana Taylor Ford was stirring the pot making pointed statements about friends suing friends, which i have a feeling is in regards to the last season that I skipped. But in all honesty they way Adrienne was throwing her head back, licking her paws and throwing out evasive remarks was appalling this woman really thinks she is something special.

    BTW, did anyone catch photos of the Maloof Hoof and her rented boy toy at a Grammy Party? He looked soooooo miserable, he reminded me of the kid in the grocery store I encountered yesterday who started crying because he was DONE shopping.

    • LAK says:

      OOHHHH last season was so major drama from Taylor, i’m amazed it made it to air and she was invited back this season and how the hell she was going to top last season. i guess the answer is she couldn’t, so she might as well get her drink on.

      Anyways, A made a song and dance about how friends shouldn’t sue friends and it can all be resolved with a sit down, and she made a big deal of disinviting Taylor from several events because Taylor’s husband had threatened to sue another HW and that expression became a catch phrase from A who kept repeating it ad nauseum in all her solo commentary spots.

      So Taylor is throwing it back at her.

    No one has ever worked a divorce as well as Glandi (slip intended).

    I love me some Brandi, but she doesn’t make the greatest fashion choices. Kind of trashy.

    • judyjudy says:

      I agree. She kind of rocks the LA 40-year-old-divorcee trashy-chic look.

      And her elbows betray her.

      But hey, I’m currently wearing yoga pants I’ve owned for seven years and I haven’t washed my hair since Sunday so I can’t really judge.

      • karmasabiatch! says:

        Ha @ judyjudy -

        As I sit here with unwashed hair in my three yr old yoga pants, I can thoroughly appreciate your comment. Loves me some Brandi and the sisterhood on CB, right? Although I’m not sure I would qualify BG as a great fashion critic either. *scratches head*

  13. hoya_chick says:

    Brandi is carving out a nice little career for herself! Good for her and her new gig. I wouldn’t say she is a fashion plate or anything but she is gorgeous and has tons of personality which will make for good tv.

    I respect what she said about telling her children when they are older. If their dad and his new wife had not behaved so despicably she would not have had a story to tell. All those people on their high horse calling her trashy, what’s trashier, sleeping around behind your pregnant wife’s back (Eddie)—having an affair with a married man whose wife you have met when you yourself was married as well(Leann)or writing a book about what happened to you? Give me a break!

    I hope Brandi continues to be successful and finds a nice loyal man. Funny how as Brandi becomes more and more successful her ex and his wife’s career are tanking. Aint karma great y’all?

  14. Kitkerenina says:

    Would love to see LeAnn stalk up to be interviewed, styled identically apart from her horse blinder bangs.

  15. MaxyBabe says:

    Go Glamville!!!! I just ordered your book and can’t wait to read it, you deserve every success in your new career,yes! career!! Well done on having the strength to make a new life for yourself and providing for your family. Would love to see you on Fashion Police, you + Joan Rivers would be a scream! Go girl!!!

  16. KellyinSeattle says:

    I kind of think Brandi is way overexposed lately, but at the same time, she said she’s doing this book tour and then she’s “done”….we’ll see…but a correspondent at the Oscars? That’s a big much, but I do hope LeAnn is stewing.

  17. Alana Fajina says:

    Good for her!! I’m happy for this chica, I wish her much success and happiness!

  18. Dimebox says:

    Right now Brandi’s book is #1 on the iPad Top Chart for books sold. Good for her. Between the book’s success and the Oscar gig there is some gorgeous karma going on!

  19. Deanne says:

    As someone who had a completely inappropriate step-mother and had a Mother who protected us from the hell that the stephag and my Father put her through until we were older, I can tell you that those boys will be so proud of their Mother. They are going to figure out the truth of the matter and Eddie cam play holier than thou all he wants, they’ll know better. She is supporting them herself, while their Father has his new wife supporting them and himself. He never works. If he didn’t have LeAnn, he’s be living with his parents or in a crappy apartment. He’s a kept man while their Mother is fighting to be a successful, independent woman. What a great opportunity it is for Brandi to get her feet wet doing this sort of gig. She is so personable and has a good sense of humor so I’ll definitely be watching to see what she has to say. I hope that this book and the opportunities that will come from it, bring her all the security and financial stability she’s looking for.

  20. candigirl says:

    I saw the Today show with Brandi, the interviewer Willie came off as hostile and clueless about the whole thing. He kept grilling her and she kept her cool. It was great to watch how adult Brandi can be when she wants to be. When you know the history of the stalking and threatening stuff from Leann that Brandi’s endured you see how strong she is to get through it and still have to endure jerks like this guy who can’t do their jobs and get the facts on the whole story.

  21. Lizzie K says:

    I love it that Brandi’s life is opening up this way. Wishing her all good things!

  22. janie says:

    I think she will be terrific! I just love her & i hope she does really well with her book! I have read a few pages, i’m lovin’ it. TEAM BRANDI!

  23. kim says:

    Why? She’s trashy reality tv and we’re talking Oscars here? She does not belong there.

    Keep the trashy reality people away from the talented people please.

  24. valleymiss says:

    I’m definitely rooting for Brandi to let go of publicly talking about the Leann/Eddie stuff soon (as she promises she will do once the book promotion dies down) and there’s no better way than for her to get other gigs that aren’t related to Leann. Brandi has great fashion sense…I see this fashion correspondent thing as the perfect gig for someone like her. She modeled, she’s got a clothing line…she knows the industry and what looks good on women. I hope she does really well, and I hope she pursues this angle. Infinitely more interesting than any Leann/Maloof drama.

  25. laprincesita says:

    yay! go Brandy! you deserve your success! go girl! :)

  26. Snowpea says:

    Look I love Brandi and think that in the land of fakeness and backstabbing, she’s as real as they come.

    But that black dress is doing her no favours. I think 40 is when a woman should gently transition into a less revealing way of dressing.

    Imagine BG in a knee length black leather skirt and a silk black pussycat blouse? Still TOTALLY hot without looking a little bit desperate.

    I know y’all can dress however you like, but once the knees and elbows start to go, one must adopt a more covered up way of dressing ;)

    • Jayna says:

      Her legs are so skinny that she does herself no favors in a dress that short where it hits where her legs are the skinniest. The side shot was skeletal with her legs. She was on Leno in a longer leather pencil skirt and great blouse and looked fantastic in the outfit. Shorts work great on her but mini dresses that length aren’t flattering on her

      My favorite look of Brandi that I was obsessed with was her lighter blue jeans with the kind of bell-bottom flare and her blouse and belt on her she wore on the show. With her height, lithe figure, and long legs, she looked amazing.

  27. JudyKay says:

    She is nothing but a liar. SHe cheated too. She has no feelings for her kids or she wouldnt be sticking all her trash in the papers daily,or tweets or anything that can keep her botoxed plastic lying face in the news. Blames LR for everything. SHe takes no blame what so ever about her failed marriage or why her husabnad cheated but I can see why he cheated. From her and her BS about getting her vagina fixed up. SHe named herself she is nothing but a walking vagina . SHe doesnt care how she hurts her kids and how other kids will taunt them about this. SO HW has her go to the Wards show? Not on my dime . I am not watching this tramp and unfit mother give anyone any kind of award. I think EC should take his kids away from her befor they become bitter and tainted like their so called DUI mother.SHe is abusing her children by what she is doing. LR didnt steal her hisband, he left her and I can see why,She struts around half naked all the time. I bet she really will show her plastic tits off on that show LOL Thos woman doesn;t wear her heart on her sleve she wears her vagina on it .

  28. Rita says:

    Belinda, the meds are on the top shelf of the kitchen cabinet next to the sink. They’re kept there out of the reach of children, so use a stool.

  29. Jayna says:

    Can someone close to Brandi please tell her to stop the overuse of fillers. She did more, I guess. In the Today Show interview when she smiled there was more filler all the way closer to her smile lines. I don’t know how to describe it. It was hours ago and I would have to rewatch. It makes her look older actually or not as soft looking. She’s only 40 and so pretty and yet becoming obsessed and overdoing fillers. A bigger face doesn’t equal more youthful when it’s fake.

  30. Barbara says:

    Well I don’t watch any of the reality shows…but I can say without a doubt…I don’t like her.

  31. Blenheim says:

    Brandi is starting to have that thing where your over injected cheeks are starting to push your eyes up.

    • sullivan says:

      I agree. She looks like all the other ‘Housewives.’

      “Brandi doesn’t have a filter” is code for Brandi doesn’t have class.

      • Jayna says:

        I just saw her on Access Hollywood. She doesn’t even smile easily she’s so full of fillers. Then they show an old photo with a thinner face when she was younger, and it was sad to see the face now. Let the fillers go down to minimal and stop the madness. Definitely getting a plastic look.

        But i disagree. Brandi has a lot of class in many ways, but yet in other ways she does lack class.

  32. Jane says:

    Is there any way of telling how many books Brandi has sold thus far???? I’ve been looking on-line and asking around. Can’t find it.

    Mr. and Mrs. Mc Squinty must be fuming at this. What a great way to rub this in their faces.

  33. Jezi says:

    I’m so very proud of B. She has come so far. I am glad everyone can now learn what she has gone through with dumb and dumber over the years. She deserves every bit of success she is getting.

  34. Dirty Martini says:



  35. crtb says:

    Thank goodness, her husband left for for another woman
    Otherwise we would have no idea who this idiot is!
    So tired of this bore.

  36. Sugar says:

    I think her LBD is cute & something I would wear to a casual summer event. it’s way toooo cold where I live to even think about wearing a dress like this now but hey come summertime I’m on it.
    Even tho it’s late but not too late to say happy birthday Brin:)

  37. april says:

    Brandi is a very immature woman. I cannot see a decent guy dating or marrying her.

  38. Cinnamon says:

    still reading her book and it is hilarious. I had my husband read me a chapter while I was in the jacuzzi tub (don’t judge me i like story time in the tub after a long day and he likes to read to me. we all have our weird) and he kept cracking up and saying “this chick is a riot. i cant believe im saying this stuff out loud”

  39. I love to say it, but Lincoln will clean up the oscars
