Brandi Glanville is trying to help Kim Richards find a suitable boyfriend/hookup

Here are some new photos of Brandi Glanville attending the opening of Kyle Richards’ new story in Beverly Hills. My God, Brandi looks SO skinny. She’s always been thin, of course, and she just seems to have that leggy, skinny model-type body. But I swear, her legs used to look stronger and there used to be more there overall. She’s lost a lot of weight recently, right? As for the little black dress… eh. I don’t get Brandi’s obsession with black leather, and the mini-dress doesn’t really highlight her assets.

As for the drama of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… I don’t watch the show, but if you watch it, I’m sure you’ll find this story interesting:

Looks like Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards have cleared the air. The former feuding Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars have mended their relationship after famously butting heads on the hit Bravo show (Brandi once accused Kim of doing meth in the bathroom, while Richards called Glanville a “slut pig”).

E! News has exclusively learned the twosome recently double dated, and the now one-year-sober star has enlisted the Drinking and Tweeting author to aid with her love life.

A source tells E! News Richards has been telling friends she’s ready for some romance in her life, and in a segment filmed for the show’s upcoming fourth season, Brandi offered to set her up.

“She asked Kim if she had her mind on men of any background or color,” the source reveals to E! News. “And Kim said bring it on.” (Get it, girl!)

Days later, Brandi and her on-again, off-again beau Jonathan Ruiz met Kim at L.A.’s Magnolia restaurant on Sunset Blvd. with a handsome African American man, who was ready to meet the single reality star.

“At first things were a little awkward, because Kim can get shy,” the source explains. “But once she started to feel more comfortable, she opened up. They had a fun time.”

While there were no major sparks flying between Kim and her date, the new gal-pals seem to be getting along swimmingly.

“At the end of the day, there wasn’t a romantic connection, but Kim really appreciated Brandi’s efforts. She’s enjoying their new friendship,” the Bev Hills insider says.

And apparently, Kim is serious about finding a man, as a second source tells E! News Richards went on another blind date just a few days later, which was arranged by a different pal.

“Kim is definitely putting herself out there,” the second source notes. “She’s on the prowl for a boyfriend!”

Filming is currently underway for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season four. E! News has exclusively learned Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud are joining the show as full-fledged housewives, while Taylor Armstrong may not be returning to the series in a full-time role.

Would you accept a set-up from Brandi Glanville? I don’t know. I think Brandi would be a fun, trash-talking girlfriend to have, but she also seems like kind of a mess in the guy department. I respect her game, but I don’t think she would be so good at setting up her friends with appropriate men. As for her game – just listen to what Gerard Butler said about meeting her and hooking up with her. He asked her what she did for a living and she was like “Don’t worry about it” and then they boned in the Porto-potty or whatever. So, my take is that Brandi is probably great if you need the name of a guy who will just have sex with you and never learn your last name. But love? Not so much.

    because she does such a good job on her own love life. *eyeroll*

  2. LAK says:

    It’s big of Brandi to make up with Kim. Kim needs friends who aren’t Vyle.

    It maybe a camera friendship, but i really want Kim to get some genuine help, genuine friends, genuine make over of her life and to get away from Vyle.

  3. Mac says:

    I know this is probably made for tv, but it’s nice that Kim and Brandi are becoming friends. Brandi needs to focus on something other than hating Leann Rimes.

  4. heidi says:

    Adrienne Janic looks the best here. Brandi would benefit from taking some lifestyle tips on diet, natural beauty, etc from AJ cus Brandi is looking like she wore the right get up for her present condition…a trash bag.

  5. Christina22 says:

    She is looking extra thin these days, which might have to do with the emotional difficulty of their family’s dog being lost. But as far as Gerard Butler, he said after being originally asked that he did realize who she was and remembered her, they spent the weekend on some beach togeher. I get the impression that he probably sleeps around a lot and is very casual about the whole sex thing.

  6. UsedToBeLulu says:

    I saw some bikini photos of Brandi recently, and she is looking like Olive Oyl. Too much partying and not enough working out?

  7. skipper says:

    I think Brandi looks fine. Her legs do look skinny but they are so long she probably has naturally thin legs. Her bones aren’t sticking out of her chest or anything (think Nicole Richie and blue bikini on the beach). I hope they filmed the double date with Kim. I would love to see that.

  8. Jayna says:

    Brandi’s legs have always been bad, skinny scrawny, with that kenth dress. She is just great at posing her legs in a more flattering way. She looks better with a more flattering length or in shorts where there is more shape back up to her thighs to balance her legs out.

    No offense to Brandi, but I would pass on her type men.

  9. Shannon says:

    Kim is a hot mess. She’s not sober and never got true help. Brandi helping her find a man is just ridiculous. Kim needs an intervention not a hookup.

  10. Jayna says:

    Brandi should take styling tips from her two friends. They look nice. Brandi, for such a pretty girl, dresses so cheap-looking a lot of the time. That dress is made poorly, the way it hangs and bunches and looks for someone in their twenties anyway or a desperate 40 something that goes to those happy hour bar things with an obvious too-young/too-tight dress, wth that old fashioned looking overdone “frosted” hair, and a too-dark tan making them look their age in a dated way, circling the bar hoping to get noticed by a man. I’ve seen those women and it scares the hell out of me. Dear God, never let me become one of them in my forties – divorced, overly bleached, and too fake of a tan, heavy makeup, and desperate.

    Brandi is too pretty to be that woman, but the dress reminds me of it. She needs someone to help her in the going out with the girs style department. She should be doing an effortlessly casual chic look in jeans or an effortlessly sexy but casual look in dresses, not this too try-hard look when going out with the girls at her age.

    Between this one and that awful white number a couple of weeks back, she’s at strike two.

    If Brandi finds a suitable man she should keep him for herself first. Worry about setting Kim up later.

    I saw the names of the two new housewives…… You know……. I was wondering if they had anything with LeAnn Rimes in the works. But I guess not

  12. Rita says:

    Yes, Brandi’s legs are getting too thin but over all, for a 40 year old with two children, she looks great.

    Ps- She should set-up Kim with Eddie….for a one nighter.

  13. OK says:

    Not feeling the leather mini in the summer. She needs to start wearing longer dresses and shirts. Less is more Brandi.

    She also looks like she has lost weight. I think she mentioned in an interview or something that she loses weight but she really need to put more weight on. It is making her look older.

    On a good note, it looks like she calmed down on her fillers..

  14. TheTruthHurts says:

    I love Brandi. I want her to find love and be happy. I wish that she would stop dating or hooking up with these losers who only want just that. She needs to slow way down in the physical department when she meets a guy. She needs to start dating educated, classy, GOOD guys. Not men who hang out in clubs or only care about money. She needs to take her time and be friends with them and be real with them, so they can respect her and fall in love with her. I think she is stunningly beautiful, but can act immature when it comes to men, thinking that sex is the way to get them. It’s not. She’s had her fun after her divorce, now it’s time for her to get serious and find a man of quality who can love her and love her children. I know it’s hard because most of the men in LA are douchebags, but there is someone out there for her.

    Her friend Etirsa is so freaking gorgeous!

  16. Jennifer12 says:

    Brandi is super pretty, which is why her styling is so puzzling. Hair is way too blond, and she is way too thin. At some point, you choose between the face and the body. But she wouldn’t have to because she is so tall that she could weigh a little more. Cut the hair a little, go with a honey brown, put on some weight- not tons, just about 15 pounds. Chill out on the hoochie mama dresses; they’re not sexy at any age. And either date Darin (best choice) or, if you still feel weird changing that relationship, look for a guy more like him: calm, family minded, funny. You will get what you think you deserve, as the saying goes.

  17. I think Brandi could be absolutely knock out gorgeous if she cuts back on the botox and fillers and quits wearing those dresses that cover half the boob and make them bulge. With the right clothes she would be stunning. And a new hairstyle! She has said she has always dressed like a hoochy and probably always will. To each his own I guess. I think the last 4 years have been very high stress for this poor lady and it is starting to show on her. Of course, Leann and her 3 or 4 devoted fans love to ridicule her and make horrible insulting remarks about her looks. Makes me sick the way they goad her. They act like she was the one that did the dirty deed and caused people pain. Kudos to her for being able to make a new life for herself. She had her heart broken and stomped on and now Leann is trying to further hurt her through her children. I just don’t get it.

  18. NinaS says:

    She is very thin, but she is beautiful. I would love for her to stop with the fillers and change her style to classy, age appropriate attire. That would drive LR right over the edge, esp. because Brandi would get SO much positive press. Listen up, Brandi!

  19. Sara says:

    I always think she has a great body even when wearing something less than flattering like the leather mini dress.
