Brandi Glanville hosts an OK! Mag party in a demure LBD: cute or tacky?

Brandi Glanville went to another super-budget event! These are pics of Brandi at the “OK! Magazine SO SEXY event at Skybar” last night. This event seems way tackier than even that McWrap event that Brandi went to a few weeks ago (remember that?). I’m looking through the photos to see if I can find anyone else worthwhile there… Bai Ling was there. Gilles Marini was there. Yolanda Foster was there. So yes, Brandi was the biggest celebrity there. I have no problem saying that.

Ah, I just checked her Twitter… she tweeted: “Bad hair skin night, but thats not gonna keep me from hosting the #SOSEXY #OKMAGAZINE party!” So she was the HOST! Well, then that’s a pretty good gig for her. I hope she got a nice paycheck for this gig. As for Brandi’s dress… it’s cute. It’s way more conservative than she usually goes. I like that her tatas are covered up and the hemline seems almost demure for her. It IS kind of basic, but I think a lot of women would love to own this LBD.

I have to say, I’m kind of impressed with Brandi keeping her word (so far) about not engaging LeAnn and Eddie’s melodrama and narcissism. Brandi didn’t say a word (that I can see) about LeAnn’s attempts to famewhore Jake Cibrian’s sixth birthday party last weekend. Brandi didn’t engage, and the result was that LeAnn looked like an idiot who uses her stepsons as publicity pawns. Brandi’s refusal to engage also makes LeAnn more and more desperate, I think. Which is probably a bad thing. I wonder if Brandi should have disengaged earlier? Eh. She needed to engage them to promote her book, and it worked out beautifully for her. So while her “taking the high road” stance might be disingenuous at this point, she still looks better than LeAnn.

    Brandi looks FAB! Her face has calmed down, her dress is cute, fashionable, and appropriate. I love her!

  2. insomniac says:

    Love the dress — I think she looks great here.

  3. Cinnamon says:

    I would love to see her with darker hair like in earlier pictures of her with eddie. like brown caramel highlights or something. the blond seems washed out. i like her dress but its so un-brandi like lol
    good for her for getting a paying gig. not much can be said about leann or eddie these days (when IS her album coming out. i thought it was last week?)

  4. mari says:

    Would have been cute 20 years ago. Both Brandi and the dress.

  5. Susie Q says:

    Brandi looks great. Is that Roxy? from Entertainment Tonight in the bottom pic? The one THAT YELLS EVERYTHING and can’t pronunciate her words. I stopped watching that show because of her.

  6. Italian love says:

    She totally looks FAB!! Great look and gorgeous.

  7. CF says:

    this is the best I have seen her look

  8. bopit says:

    is that the kid from the Super Bowl commercial? why is he EVERYWHERE?

  9. Bex says:

    Brandi looks fabulous. My mum always said ‘show your tits or legs, never both at the same time’. I think this outfit shows that. Brandi’s legs are so great she doesn’t need to flash cleavage at the same time.

  10. Christin says:

    This is one of her better looks of late. And I agree with the disengaging assessment. For some time, this seemed a 2 on 1 battle. Now we have only one still yapping.

  11. brin says:

    Brandi looks and is lovely inside (most important) and outside. I love that she is not engaging the nutjob that is Leann and Leann just looks the worse for it!

  12. Sirsnarksalot says:

    I just finished her book and I absolutely adore her. She such a pistol.

  13. Maer says:

    Who is that women with Brandy ? She looks like big Ang from that mob show .

  14. Elceibeno says:

    We get it Brandi, you are size two skinny thing!

  15. Hoya_chick says:

    She looks fantastic! She is very attractive and has a great figure, less is definitely more! At least it’s a check! She is taking care of herself and her kids. I love that she is ignoring Leann. Keep it up B!

  16. JudyK says:

    It’s cute…get rid of the platforms.

  17. eileen says:

    Ugh she’s got my dream McQueen clutch! WANT!
    She looks fabulous as always-and Jennifer G looks great also. They are so cute together.

  18. Melma says:

    Her eyes still look a little cray cray but her face actually looks decent/good compared to what is has been looking like recently.

    • Linda says:

      It’s the dark eyeliner/shadow around her eyes that doesn’t look good. I noticed it right away. Her eyes look good with a touch of mascara and some eye shadow but not the ring around the eye thing. It’s too dark for her. But all in all, Brandi is soooo pretty.

  19. Stuart Horsely says:

    Love her; she looks very, very nice. The less she refusess to engage those two idiots who make her life miserable, the more I love her.

  20. Deanne says:

    She looks great. Love the dress, love the clutch. The dress is cute, but not cutesy and is very flattering to her long, lean body. Brandi’s choice to disengage from the public LeAnn conflict, is a wise one and just makes LeAnn look like an spoiled child, looking for attention.I know she has money, but just from her Twitter alone, I can’t imagine Eddie likes being around her. She’s comes across as someone who must be exhausting to live with. With all the crazy she makes public, the private crazy must be a nightmare

  21. DreamyK says:

    Fabulous look. You go girl! Team Brandi :)

  22. Rita says:

    Cute or Tacky? How could this outfit be considered in any way tacky? She looks lovely and we need to find some new adjective choices.

    Marvelous face, Brandi. Looking your best!!!!! This is your look, girl!!!

  23. Sara says:

    I give her major points for dressing age appropriate!

  24. MAREHOOP says:

    Dress is cute but her attitude still sucks…Just because she is not talking about Eddie and Leann she is talking about everyone else…

  25. Ginger says:

    I’d love to own that dress! Idk why she said bad hair/ bad skin ? She looks great!

  26. Cam S says:

    Well to be fair when you are just starting a career like hers they tell yo not turn turn anything down. I remember a while back Kim Kardashian went to the opening of Charmin’s new toilet paper or something. She’s gotta stay visible to earn that money. I’d rather get paid to do that then sit at my desk from 9-5.

  27. judyjudy says:

    She looks better than she has in a long time.

  28. Stella says:

    Looking hawt! I’m glad she’s recovered from her burns. <3

  29. Jane says:

    Brandi looks fantastic here. I won’t be a bit surprised if Leann shows up somewhere wearing a little black dress as well. Glad Brandi is taking the high-road here and not talking about Leann and Eddie. It must be making Leann furious because she wants everyone to be talking about her all the time. She feeds off of it.

  30. Deanne says:

    I have to make this comment because I saw something that really pissed me off. One of LeAnn’s minions tweeted to Brandi “out drinking again…”. Then added “glad you didn’t overdo it and can function this morning”. LeAnn tweets photos of her and Eddie drinking, or alluding to them drinking (pints of beer,shots, decanters of wine, wine bottles, all of the time and this butt kisser of hers, is insinuating Brandi is out partying every night and always overdoes it. The hypocrisy is so ridiculous. I don’t care it you like both women, hate both women, or have chosen sides, but to actually be so moronic that you ignore LeAnn and Eddie’s party lifestyle, with the boozy vacations and months of parties leading up to birthdays etc, yet admonish Brandi for attending an industry event, makes you stupid as hell. Brandi has never tried to portray herself as a paragon of virtue. LeAnn on the other hand, has tried to play that card and despite the glaringly obvious evidence that she’s not, they all fall for it. Now GH is trying to get Bullyville to go after Brandi’s supporters even thought she herself has been one of the biggest bullies in this whole mess. Hypocrite or what.

  31. VanillaDeeLite says:

    She looks really cute!

  32. DGO says:

    Uh, where’s the bad hair and skin? She looks fabulous! Love the dress, too!

  33. TheTruthHurts says:

    Ugh, enough with that creepy fat kid. Brandi looks amazingly gorgeous. Glad to see her hands have healed nicely!!

  34. BeachBelle says:

    Here’s a few more pictures of the Brandi. Love the picture of her by the car. Her dress has a big circle cutout in the back. She looks really pretty. LeAnn is already looking the perfect little black dress for herself. Count on it.

  35. ya says:

    Ya she looks really good here – maybe better than I’ve ever seen her. The dress looks great on her and her skin looks great too.

    I think it would have been a bit hypocritical for her to have engaged with LR on papping the kids, considering that there was that photoshoot she just did with the kids in front of their house (about her moving or something). Both of them are equal on that issue.

    • BeachBelle says:

      Brandi lives on a open street where anyone can drive down the street any time and park on the street, too. She doesn’t have to call the paps. They come on their own because they know where she lives and can take pictures easily. This is one reason why she is moving. She was in her garage throwing away and packing with the garage door open like anyone else would have been if they were getting ready to move. She also on Twitter called out the Daily Mail for stalking her at home about the same time these garage pictures appeared.

      Also, the weekend Eddie and LeAnn were away she took her children to their ballgame, and no pictures of them ever appeared. It seems only when LeAnn and Eddie have them that the paps show up at their ball games.

    • Cirque28 says:

      I have to disagree with you. Maybe they both do it, but equal? No way.

      No one would know who those kids are if it wasn’t for LeAnn, and not just because she busted up their family, either. She could not and cannot stop talking about them.

      • ya says:

        BG’s whole career now is based on her family / personal life. Ya it’s very unfair that her ex-husband cheated on her and that her ex’s new wife overshares about their family to the public. That’s a very tough situation to deal with, but BG has also written a book and is in the tabloids all the time. It’s not like she’s keeping quiet. (And I’m not saying that she’s doing anything wrong – I just don’t think she’s been doing anything different lately than LR.)

  36. Patricia C says:

    If this is a bad day, there is no hope for the rest of us. (or at least not me).

  37. Karma says:

    I think she looks great! She has a sparkle to her eyes and love her LBD.

    Lately, I haven’t been a huge fan of belts with dresses. There always seems to be something off with the execution of it such as breaking up the body proportions in weird way. But this dress and Brandi make it work.

    It’s always nice to see the lovely Jennifer as well.

  38. Leslie says:

    I expect to see pictures of LeAnn soon in a little black dress like the one Brandi is wearing. Have there been any pap pictures of LeAnn and her husband from Toronto? I’m thinking there aren’t any or they’d be on JJ and DM plus all other gossip sites.

  39. Jennifer12 says:

    She looks lovely; the dress is the perfect example of how to look sexy, age appropriate, and not slutty. I would like to see her hair darker and a little shorter, which would be more sophisticated. And she seems to be easing up on the plastic surgery and is not cat faced. I think she had to fight viciously for a long time because LR had all the power (and, vicariously, EC). Now that Brandi has a high profile as an author and reality personality, she can let Leann hang herself. Leann is no longer the celebrity in this equation. Karma is a way bigger bitch than Leann could ever be. Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving pair.

  40. Anon says:

    so leann is still on her swf of brandi … anyone notice that brandi was photographed by the paparazzi wearing these simple grey flip flops two weeks ago
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2307814/Brandi-Glanville-struggling-new-place-forced-rented-pad.html
    and then leann shows up a week later at jake’s soccer game with the same flip flops?!?!
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2308736/LeAnn-Rimes-places-protective-hand-stepson-baseball-game.html
    how does she even find out what brand of clothes brandi wears? there is LEGIT dedication going on here. she must check the internet daily for any paparazzi photos of brandi and then somehow research everything down to brand and style and color and then go out and buy a copy asap.

    it’s really, really creepy. i mean these are just basic grey flip flops. and she wore them to the game where brandi attended! i can’t even comprehend the type of crazy leann is.

  41. Love Brandi!!! She looks gorgeous and I am so proud of her lately!

  42. Jayna says:

    Well, LeAnn’s album has hit youtube. So there will still be lots of Brandi/LeAnn new articles. More press for Brandi in a way.

    A Girl Just Like You:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJiu4fPpRTg

    She got Rob Thomas and Jeff Beck on this album? Color me impressed. Gasoline and Matches. I have to say ths song is great because of them. This should have been the single and would have given her a fighting chance for the album (if she had gotten off twitter and bonus boys)

    • Cirque28 says:

      Jayna, count me in as another person around here who always looks forward to your interesting, rational, delightfully opinionated posts.

      Agreed, there are some highly respected musicians on Backfire. Also drummer Steve Jordan, guitarist Waddy Wachtel (who has played with everyone, but I think of him as Stevie Nicks’ guitarist). LR certainly still has clout in her industry. Will that translate to album sales? I doubt it.

      I listened to Just A Girl Like You. The whole lighthearted tone of it is a bit nauseating. “Oh look at how alike we are, lalalalala, giggle, giggle.”

      And “I’ve always believed in him and me” as something you’re directly addressing to his ex-wife? LeAnn, LeAnn, you are just achingly clueless.

      • Jayna says:

        AW, thanks, Cirque. She doesn’t have any clout anymore. This album was recorded, what, a couple of years ago, before she went past the point of no return. The album has been delayed and delayed for release. I doubt she could get those guys to be on it now present day if she begged.

        She can’t even get the album released. I read it is being released under Walmart. I belong to a music board, and I remember Walmart being an avenue for older ’80s bands to release albums as double albums at a great deal making it attractive as a package, cutting out the middleman, with Walmart handling the promo, and the act taking more money for themselves. Remember the big Eagles and Journey and Kiss comebacks four years ago or five. Walmart deals. But I thought that was kind of over, too, with Walmart and those deals But she didn’t start out with Walmart. Curb dropped the album as far as doing anything with it it looks like. It’s not a double disk, like a second CD with live versions of her older hits, etc, or a DVD like Walmart packages. So she probably got a little bit of a deal with Walmart, so that she doesn’t take a total bath on this album, and is releasing the physical album with them. Obviously, her presales on Amazon must have been horrible for Curb to pull it.

        I did laugh about that song. She is clueless to compare herself to the betrayed wife. LOL But I am not attached to emotions like others on here, so I enjoy the song unrelated to the two parties, if that makes sense. But if you dissect it, LeAnn’s lack of empathy and narcissism is most present on that song, not able to feel the pain Brandi feels and not even understanding that she’s not like her and what an insult. That song is more in line with a girl that ends up with a player type she loves and is talking to the ex-girlfriend, not a wife of over a decade who the songwriter started an affair with.

        I am not offended by the Borrowed song like people on here, as I tend to buy a lot of music and many write things about affairs and it is a deeper song and does paint LeAnn as pathetic like she said, waiting around for him, loving someone not hers. At least in that song, it is the other woman talking about her feelings of not wanting to give him up, right or wrong.

        A Girl Just Like You is more lighthearted, on the upbeat tempo, not on the downbeat tempo. And singing like some common sisterhood regarding the wronged wife is the more insulting one to me. But, LOL, I hate to say it, the song is catchy.

      • ya says:

        Ya I listened to the album – was really looking forward to it because I liked LR’s last album and because of the musicians she’s got playing on it.

        I liked What Have I Done and Borrowed. Also liked Gasoline and Matches (especially Jeff Beck) – but the rest of it was a bit disappointing……. I dunno…. it just seemed a bit more standard than I expected.

        But I still like it better than her earlier albums prior to the last one. As far as sales, if she keeps on making good music with good musicians, if I were her I wouldn’t care. Most of my favourite musicians don’t sell particularly well.

        BTW if people like country they should check out Willie Nelson’s new album.

      • Cirque28 says:

        As far as sales, if she keeps on making good music with good musicians, if I were her I wouldn’t care.

        @Ya: I hear you. Sales don’t determine intrinsic value. Van Gogh only sold 1 painting in his lifetime. People mock LR’s fairs and casinos, but to make a living with your music on any level is pretty amazing. And Justin Biebwhatev has huge sales, while Charley Pride played the same crappy casino as LeAnn recently. I’ll take Charley Pride for talent, longevity, and the respect of his peers any day. It ain’t all about the greenbacks.

        Having said that, I think LeAnn desperately cares. Because Spitfire is her answer to her critics and the way she expects to get the public back on her side. By explaining–in song–that it was true love and they felt super guilty and she hates Brandi except why can’t Brandi see how much LeAnn has in common with her? Somehow LR doesn’t understand that she has already explained all of this many times and she still isn’t winning over any heart and minds. You can overcome a lot as a famous person, but it’s hard to overcome being seen as flat out unlikable.

        Ah, new Willie Nelson! Love him.

      • Christin says:

        Cirque, I think you captured the core of the issue in one sentence about famous people overcoming things, but being flat-out unlikeable is another story.

        Over sharing and constant publicity attempts can be contributing factors, but there can just be personality/behavior traits that the public doesn’t embrace. My personal opinion is that the unlikeable factor in this case has been there for a long time and has just increased the past few years. I’m not even sure that going out of sight for a few years would help at this point. Maybe it would, but people remember negative perceptions for a very long time.

  43. Zooyork says:

    Like some were saying above, I would love to see Brandi with darker hair.
    I’m imagining light brown hair with caramel low lights, cut about shoulder length (piecy or beach-tousled) and parted more in the center. Love how she’s moved on past Leanne and Eddie, wish u could hang out with her one night, she seems so fun and sweet.

  44. Holden says:

    Her new boyfriend in that last pic must be loaded.
