Brandi Glanville refuses to go to rehab, ‘it doesn’t seem like it would be very fun’


Brandi Glanville is still drinking and tweeting. I guess that’s the franchise, huh? Brandi should collaborate with a budget vodka company or something to create “Brandi Glanville’s Drinking & Tweeting Vodka: Racism Not Included!” Anyway, I guess last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was just a continuation of last week’s events (like, everything happened on the same day?) and Brandi was still s—tfaced in this episode. The episode became all about Brandi and whether she has a drinking problem. So last night, as the episode was airing, Brandi tweeted out a bunch of explanations:

brandi tweets

The gist of it is that Brandi is not going to rehab. Even though Brandi’s popularity is in the toilet these days, even though she’s been slammed in all quarters for her racist BS, even though she’s already got one DUI under her belt, even though being carried out of bars because she’s too drunk to walk has become a monthly occurrence, even though she’s losing paying gigs for said drunken, racist outbursts, even though her body is mostly booze these days, she’s still not going to rehab. Because “it doesn’t seem like it would be fun.” And I’m always irritated when Brandi uses the “hey, I didn’t kill anyone!” defense for whatever stupid thing she’s said or done. If you have to say “hey, I’m not a murderer!” that’s not a good sign.

    On the cover photo for her new book it looks like she was holding a wine glass but it was photoshopped out. Why bother when the book is called “Drinking and Dating” ?

  2. Grant says:

    She’s a mess. I bet LeAnn is somewhere, cackling maniacally.

  3. littlestar says:

    One thing this woman needs to do for sure is get the hell off of Twitter. I’ll admit, I don’t have Twitter but I’ve checked her Twitter feed before and she is such an idiot – constantly responding to the “haters” and Tweeting stupid sh*t. I’ve seen her actually saying things like “f*ck you” and “f*ck off” to people on Twitter! No class whatsoever. And she needs some spelling and grammar lessons >:|.

    Edit: I used to be a fan and was even looking forward to buying her second book, but I don’t think I will be anymore. It’s hard to support someone who won’t grow up and keeps using the excuse “that’s just who I am”.

    • Meredith says:

      Re : she needs some spelling and grammar lessons. Don’t they all, dear. Don’t they all!!

    • emmie_a says:

      A lot of people, Brandi included, should stay off Twitter. Unfortunately telling fans/haters/strangers to ‘f*ck off’ is not uncommon for a lot of *celebrities*. Twitter is fun but it can be such a mean place. Everyone feels free (as they are) to say whatever they want and it gets vicious fast.

    • Artemis says:

      Gone are the days when everybody jumped on the Brandi bandwagon for no reason other than the other option was apparently being a Leann fan.

      They are all a mess and some of us knew that even when girlfriend was having success as the scorned poor ex-wife and capatilizing on it by playing a victim and then writing a book.

      She’s not a bad person per se but the excuses for being drunk can only last so long. The excuses for being rude and messy can only last so long and not a damn thing, including being cheated on, is an excuse for that kind of behaviour. She needs therapy and learn how to let go. But maybe she is who she is regardless of the events surrounding the divorce, her book seems to suggest so.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I NEVER jumped on that bandwagon.

        That being said, at least Brandi’s embarrassed?
        Eh….at least she shows a level of self-awareness (after the fact of course) that I’ve never seen from Leanne.

      • littlestar says:

        Kitten – I like to think I didn’t jump on that bandwagon. I liked Brandi because she seemed refreshing, honest, and funny (and her first book was a fun read, despite being written by a ghost writer). Now her “refreshing-ness” has just turned into drunken hatred, and I can’t get behind that anymore. I really hope Brandi learns from all of this, but, she keeps using the “this is who I am” excuse, so I don’t really know if she will and just be indignant instead :( .

  4. Belle Epoch says:

    HAHAHAHA! No fun!

    Reminds me of a friend’s husband who asked if he should bring his golf clubs.

  5. LilyT says:

    Life has to be FUN at all times. When it’s not, get into a boozy haze so you won’t remember it/can excuse your behavior.

    Good plan.

  6. Green Is Good says:

    Brandi needs to GET IT TOGETHER for her kids’ sake.

  7. Rosa says:

    I think this situation is a matter of bad timing. She was drunk on last night’s episode right after the stupid comment to the pageant girl (really can’t remember her name). I don’t think she is a racist. I’d call Kanye a racist! Last season she was funny and always seemed to be telling the truth when the other ones were fibbing.

    • Jayna says:

      Not this season. She’s mean. She isn’t truthful. She is a huge disappointment to me this season. Her treatment of Joyce at this party was bizarre and she was so rude all day. She had said she and Lisa had a falling out later in the season and we would see it this season but she loved her and was sure they would make up. Instead she kept bashing Lisa on twitter and people started lashing out at her and she says, just wait until the show before commenting, and her own fans said, you are the one bringing it up and bashing Lisa before the season starts. The season starts and what I have seen is Brandi backstabbing Lisa and clearly beginning to turn on Lisa and Lisa has no idea. Whatever happens down the road with Lisa, I no longer believe Brandi that Lisa was a bad friend. I think Brandi had a good friend who was the only one last night trying to take the bottle she was chugging out of her hands because she was already incoherent, barely walking, and Brandi resented her for it. While her buddy, Yolanda, just sat by and said Lisa shouldn’t be the fun police telling Brandi when to stop drinking and just to let Brandi drink all she wants.

      People die from alcohol poisoning. People die from mixing anti-depressants or anxiety pills with too much alcohol. Lisa wasn’t enabling her but everyone enables Brandi. I really can’t stand Brandi anymore because her blogs still seem to blame everyone else for her behavior or I got drunk because it was boring, blah, blah.

      Instead of blaming everyone else, she needs to take a hard look at herself. She’s not the truth teller she thinks she is. She’s the mean girl. I think all of her popularity went to her head from last season and she thinks she’s the queen of the show and some true colors of Brandi are beginning to show. Her fall is going to be hard with the fans if the rest of the season is anything like the beginning of it.

      +1 on your comment. People think Yolanda is the classy one but this woman seems to be the most cunning bitch out of the entire group. If she was so classy, she wouldn’t jump to Brandi’s defense when she knows Brandi is out of line. SHe would tell Brandi a lady doesn’t act like that.

      I remember Yolanda’s first season on the show. They went on a trip and the girls got drunk. They were all having fun and Yolanda made the comment I can’t be around a bunch of drunk women. Kyle then said well then you don’t want to be around any of my friends. Flash forward, she’s around the biggest drunk of them all. I don’t really have an issue with Brandi but it’s people such as Yolanda who really pisses me off. She’s a freaking hypocrite.

  8. Aysla says:

    Oh, it’s not a monthly occurrence. I’ve seen pics on other websites to suggest it’s a helluva lot more frequent than that. Like I said in another post, Brandi needs to put away the bottle and see whether or not she’s dependent on that for a “good time”, start saving up her $$$ instead of spending it on making her face look like something Kermit the Frog would date (RHOBH wont be around forever), and stop using drunkenness as an excuse for bad behavior. Sometimes it’s hard to believe this mess is a mother of two sons. Anyway…

  9. Kellykat says:

    I hope Brandi gets up her courage and tries rehab, for her kid’s sake.
    She needs to never have another drink and realize that her life will be just fine. She doesn’t need the problem behavior and bad reputation it brings her.
    Try rehab Brandi, what do you have to lose?

  10. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    She keeps making the same mistake over and over. Gets sloppy drunk. Says something mean/offensive/rude. Is carried away and “taken care of” by long-suffering friends. Tweets non-apology such as “I didn’t kill anyone.”

    She said in her book that she takes Lexapro for depression. So do I, and it intensifies the effects of alcohol. A lot. You probably shouldn’t drink at all when you take an antidepressant , because it’s sort of self-defeating, as alcohol is a depressant. I do like 2-4 glasses of wine a week, but I have to be careful and can’t drink as much as I used to. She might want to take a look into that.

    • Dinah says:

      Very good point. I also remember an episode where she took a benzodiazepine for anxiety related to fear of flying- and drank wine on the plane. She ended up a bloody mess because they potentiate one another, occupying the same receptors in the brain. Her doc(s) need to have an intensive sit down with her about prescription drug/alcohol interrelation. Yikes.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      That’s the thing. The time that she got SO drunk and the paps were taking pics of her boobs, tampon string, etc-it was really gross and hard to watch. Everybody came down hard on her saying that no grown woman should ever get that drunk. But to be fair, I can think of a couple times in my life where I drank no more than my normal amount, same vodka soda that I always drink, and for some reason I got trashed. Sometimes people just have a bad reaction to alcohol-maybe she didn’t eat all day, mixed it with prescriptions or maybe she didn’t do anything differently at all and just had a bad reaction.

      But the fact is that this was not an isolated incident- it has happened over and over again, on television and in public AND she has children. NOT GOOD.

      • Jayna says:

        And on the show where she was drunk at dinner, she was drinking wine, drinking something else, pouring back shots, and then later barely able to walk, had her own bottle of wine or vodka or something and was chugging it straight out of the bottle until the bottle was taken away from her with her angry about it. It wasn’t just a drink or two and bad reaction.

  11. QQ says:

    Also not fun? : Being the tipsy mom, The gf you have to carry off of clothes at 40 etc etc

  12. someone says:

    Brandi is not cute when she is drunk and man her drunk voice is annoying. Seriously annoying. Some sort of odd combination of helium, bimbo and baby talk.

  13. Brown Eyed Girl says:

    I think she should go to rehab for a week or two. like a spa rehab. out of sight, out of mind. She gets the R&R, self reflection, and the press will be off her back. Her image is of drunky mcdrunkwife and thats not going to change by just not going out and drinking.

  14. Nerd Alert says:

    Not fun? Rehab is a spa with meetings, if you take away all the withdrawal and facing your demons you’ll have to do.

  15. Elisabeth says:

    Eddie must have asshole serum in his sperm. Everyone he injects gets sick with it (no slam to his kids)

  16. BeckyR says:

    Rehab doesn’t cure STUPID!

  17. Patricia says:

    Well how fun is it for your children to grow up with a “no filter that’s just how I am” inappropriate, embarrassing drunk for a mother? What a selfish cow.

  18. mandygirl says:

    Grow up, lady. You are an embarrassment to your kids! She should go to rehab.

  19. TheTruthHurts says:

    She doesn’t need to go to rehab, she just needs to stop drinking for a while.

  20. emmie_a says:

    So I’m wondering if the RHOBH salary is worth this?? I don’t watch the show but it seems like all those shows just bring out the worst in people so I’m hoping they are making lots of cash in exchange for all the stupidity.

  21. Megan says:

    I actually feel really bad for those kids. I mean who do they have, NO ONE.

    Brandi is a drunk racist fame whore
    Leanne is a drunk, crazy fame whore
    Eddie just wants to get laid.

    It really is tragic

  22. Sumodo1 says:

    Yes! What do the RHOBH gals make per ep? It must be enough to live on for Kim and Brandi, to keep airing their dirty laundry.

  23. Bobbiesue says:

    What is a baby Chica? Please, anyone…

  24. Peachy says:

    These second hand “celebrities” have run the course, recycled the dregs, then stayed on the garbage truck for a bonus round of this Love Triangle (obviously obtuse). I’m all “Team Social Services” at this point.

  25. Esmom says:

    How can you be drunk 1.5 times? I don’t follow her but it sounds like girlfriend knows how to rationalize with the best of ‘em.

  26. Jenna says:

    “I didn’t murder anyone” ranks right up there on the pathetic meter as “hey, I never -hit- my spouse/partner/kid” as a tombstone marker. If that’s the only thing that can be said as a character reference… take a bow and go away. Can’t someone please convince her the time to stop talking is here? (Actually, that time passed a while ago, but now its just digging the hole deeper!)

  27. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    See this isn’t even funny or even slightly amusing any more. She needs to do SOMETHING, and not trivialize rehab. It’s especially personal to me because my grandma is an alcoholic. About a week ago, my grandma was found on a snowmobile trail, at six in the morning. Basically she left the bar at 2 in the morning, and somehow found her way onto a snowmobile trail nearby and passed out. The only reason she was found was because a man took a walk on that trail every morning–when they finally got her to the hospital, her body temperature was 80 degrees, and she had a heart attack while on the ground.

    And she refuses to go to rehab. She’s had two DUIs, she can’t drive now–she got divorced BECAUSE she refused to go to rehab–so I worry about her a lot. It was especially bad for me, because I had been over her house and we baked a couple of apple pies and sat around and talked (I was catching her up on all the gossip on Celebitchy), then later that night she went to the bar, and that’s how she ended up in the trail. It worries me that any time I go over that could be the last time I see her alive. And she just doesn’t care at all. I don’t understand it.

    • littlestar says:

      Very sorry to hear about your grandma, Virgilia. The saddest thing about alcoholics (and likely all addicts) is that it seems like they have to admit to THEMSELVES first they have a problem before they’ll do anything about it. My husband’s best friend is a full blown alcoholic too. He got his first DUI almost 2 months ago, and guess what? His drinking hasn’t slowed down AT ALL. Every single weekend he goes on full blown benders that usually last for 3-4 days. Not to mention his drinking every other night of the week. My husband and I told him back in August that we think his drinking is out of control, but he would not listen. We don’t really know what to do at this point, besides trying not to partake in drinking around him or doing things with him that would encourage him to drink. The saddest part to me is that he has other friends who realize he has a major problem too but it’s like they don’t care because he is the “party” friend – when they want someone to party with he’s the go-to guy. It actually enrages me when I think about it. Instead of helping their friend they just encourage it because they want to “escape” for a few hours and have fun, while the guy they are having fun with has his life falling apart around him. And he is like your grandma, he just doesn’t seem to care at all or realize that his grip on life is tenuous at best.

    • Cirque28 says:

      So sorry to hear this Virgilia. Although (of course!) it hurts you that she won’t take better care of herself, it’s this thing between her and her demons. It’s really not personal, nor any reflection of her feelings for you.

      One of things that particularly kills me with addicts is watching them become old addicts. Not that there’s any REAL glamour or coolness in it at any age, but still. When anybody thinks, “Oh, my friends know I’m a party animal, they don’t mind carrying me out of restaurants occasionally…” just imagine how someday it will be your grandkids carrying you. Probably with your boobs out. Something to look forward to.

  28. neelyo says:

    The only way to get this idiot to rehab would be to set up cameras inside. So sick of fame whores and the Real Housewives are the worst of the bunch. I don’t care how rich or ‘famous’ they are, they’re ALL losers.

  29. Jennifer12 says:

    I don’t watch much TV, and reality TV is definitely out for me. Too stupid to watch. So I don’t know enough about this, but I will say that you can’t possibly believe that all of this- that MOST of it- is even real. Seriously? It’s like believing “The Hills” was real. She’s getting the bad girl edit for sure, so it’s either her turn or she pissed off some important people. I can’t imagine having to deal with the hideous crap she deals with, turning her kids over to her useless ex and his psychotic wife half the time. It must’ve been even worse when her boys were babies. But at this point, she does need to chill and realize her popularity is waning. Maybe she needs to talk to a therapist and get herself sorted out and see she needs to be on track for herself and her sons. She isn’t 20 anymore and she needs to realize that holding onto it makes her look awful. Its cool to hang out and let loose once in a while, but sitting in clubs throwing fake gangster signs at 41 is really sad. I get that she’s upset because Joyce is friends with Leann and denying it, but explain it calmly and then be done because the producers are loving the publicity. Don’t hand them any more bullets. What she said was moronic, but it’s really out of hand at this point. And for someone who’s so proud of her heritage, Joyce has had surgery on her nose and wears blue contact lenses. Interesting that she avoids the Leann connection as well, just saying that no one gets it.

    • Cirque28 says:

      Jennifer12: Yes, a little time with a counselor sounds like a great idea to help Brandi get back on track. People think you have to hit bottom before you get help, but I say, “Why wait?” (And I also say, “Public tampon string would be far enough down for me.”)

      PS to all my gently-aging riot grrrls and grunge goddesses: “The Punk Singer” is a new movie about Kathleen Hanna. Have you seen it?

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Haven’t seen it yet, but am dying to. Currently stuck in the house with my kids due to snowstorms that won’t end and they’re handing sinus infections back and forth. Every time I see a poster of the film, I start whispering, “GIRLS TO THE FRONT!!” Or not whispering. I’ve heard Babes in Toyland might be reuniting, though Lori said she would never do it. Secretly hoping.

        I like Brandi, but she needs someone to help her get on track for many reasons, and the public tampon string is definitely one of them.

  30. Dap says:

    Isn’t she afraid that her ex-husband will use all those drunken tweets/ drunken photos/drunken shows to gain full custody of the kids?

    • betty says:

      Her behavior when she has her kids is what counts. I know a lot of alcoholics and pill poppers raising children. As long as the kids are not abused and are being properly cared for Eddie can’t do a thing. If bad behavior was the issue most parents would have a problem. There is no Ozzie and Harriet family in today’s society most are like Modern family. Edward would have to clean up his house before he started court proceedings. Admittedly Brandi drinks too much but we all have faults. The ones that has the most criticism are probably worse then she is in other ways. There is nothing wrong with having fun but like everything else it can be overdone.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Probably not since he’s on video drinking and doing drugs and his current wife (separated, from what I’ve read) is as well. She could barely stand up during an X Factor show. And there are loads of pictures of them drinking that she called paps to come see.

  31. Jen says:

    Where are all her fans who used to say, “There’s nothing wrong having fun!!!”….?

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      They are gone. Her merry band of followers seems to be very quiet these days. I think they found out their idol is neither all natural OR truthful, in addition to being a mean, sloppy, insecure drunk mess.

      She easily wins the douchebag award out of the triangle.

      • betty says:

        Speak for yourself! Being a fan is like being a friend, you don’t kick your friend when they are going through a bad faze. If you are a fan you will still be one and hope the faze will end and continue to root for that person.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        I am speaking for myself. I’ve never really been a fan of this mess. I think all the adults in this tacky mess of a soap opera are horrific people.

      • Cirque28 says:

        Now, now, OTiffany, I don’t think any Celebitchies IDOLIZED her and if anyone ever thought she was all natural, they must have kept it to themselves. People liked her because we found her deeply sympathetic and appealingly straightforward. But her popularity has diminished now for sure. Addiction can make nice people into assholes and assholes into monsters.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        Nope Cirque go back and read.
        Her cheeks are all natural, she was born that way, she is part “indian” those cheeks are natural. She burned her hands in the kitchen! She only tried botox once! (I also LOVE when people talk about LR and her buddy kissing for Eddiot when this one ADMITTED to full threesomes to keep him. She is made of LIES.)

        The amount of silly idolatry on here was amazing for a very long time. I’ve been here the entire time, in fact, a few months ago I reread most articles about this triangle. We have had crazy Brandi stans get banned, surely you remember those crazy threads. The tone on CB has definitely done a 180. In fact a few posters, including OKitt have the written the exact same sentiments way above. The chickens have come home to roost for this plastic, drunk and tacky woman.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Was never a fan, but was horrified at how she was treated by the two people who ripped her life apart in the first place. That doesn’t mean she got a free pass from most who supported her on here. I remember Rita, Brin and Clare saying clearly they didn’t support some of her antics, but still supported her. She does need to get it together, though.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        She could totally turn public perception of herself around and really come out looking like the bigger person if she would clean herself up, start being nice to people and get herself a filter.
        Some grace and empathy would do her good. She needs to reel in her drinking and her mouth. This would require a heck of a lot of change though, don’t you think?

  32. Skye says:

    I don’t watch this show – because I haven’t murdered anyone and buried them in my basement, and therefore don’t need to self-torment that much guilt out of myself – BUT I have to ask…. does she really NEED rehab? Can they rehab “a$$hole” out of you? I always though rehab was for dealing with actual ADDICTION, as in withdrawal, as in trying desperately to stay sober through breakfast on your own and not making it, etc. Now it seems like a knee-jerk reaction anytime there’s ANY kind of incident with substances involved, or even – for that matter – when the ONLY incident is that people SAW you drunk. It’s drunk. It’s not demonic possession. You wake up, you take some aspirin, you curse whatever deity decided people should have heads and nerve endings, you throw up, you make your apologies, you move on. You don’t go to San Diego for two months.

  33. Ming says:

    What is the appropriate level of drunkeness?
    Honestly curious..
    What is the age limit on getting crazy with your girlfriends?
    I never want to get ‘old’ if it means I have to drink tea and knit.
    I bet people would be singing a different tune I’d they had cameras following their every move..

    • Jennifer12 says:

      I was thinking about this. I’m a mom and I’m close to Brandi’s age. I was into the straight edge movement as a teenager, so I never picked up the drinking/drugs habit. But a lot of parents my age are weekend warriors; if they’re not divorced, they have the kids with family so they can go out and party. I think it’s too much, myself. My husband and his friends rented a bus so they could go see a football game and they were all pretty drunk when picked up at the bus station. I wanted to punch him, but the guys’ attitudes were, well we don’t do it that often (in Pat’s case, it’s actually true). A lot of the women on my FB talk about having a few glasses of wine at night. I think it’s middle ground; you go and hang out sometimes, but you don’t let it get to the point where you can’t stand up or function. You don’t need to go to clubs or bars as recreation, you have the occasional girls’ night, and you aren’t using it as an escape from things that bother you. I like Brandi and loathe LR/EC, but she’s at a point where she needs to decide which direction she’d like her life to take. If being a public figure is what she wants her career to be, then she needs to realize this is costing her money. You can’t be 21 forever.

  34. Original me says:

    Brandi should have passed up doing the show and instead should have thrown herself back into a modeling or hosting career. She looks great, has insane legs, and she’s pretty funny. I don’t get it. Apparently wallowing in self pity, being drunk and crass, and generally acting unhinged seemed to be a better option.

  35. Peachy says:

    Wasted away again in Glanville.

  36. Snowpea says:

    Am I the only Brandi supporter still left? *shakes head in disbelief*

    Yes the past is the past but surely we can find a modicum of sympathy for a woman whose life was shattered by a sociopathic narcissist who then proceeded to copy and stalk her every move?

    How about losing your kids fifty percent of the time to aforementioned stalker? How about having said stalker bully you via Twitter using an army of hateful, toxic losers? How about having to pick yourself up and reassemble your life, trying to find a job to support you and your children because your deadbeat ex refuses to get a job and pay child support?

    I separated from my ex a long long time ago and it has taken a good ten years to fully get my shit together after such a catastrophic break up.

    I get pissed occasionally. I swear and carry on. I am a human being first, a mother second. Motherhood does not have a contract that stipulates teetotal chastity for crying out loud. Sheesh, when did this site become a haven for intolerant, judgemental puritans anyway?

    Glanville is obviously a complete mess right now and needs help to find her way out of it. But when you consider the past four years of her life, you reckon you can cut her a LITTLE bit of slack?

  37. TeresaGiudice says:

    I feel bad for her. She’s made a total jack ass of herself. Not only on twitter but on reality tv. Her negativity and foolishness is forever out their for the world to see! She’ll regret all of it when she sobers up.
