Brandi Glanville claims she’s ‘a good person who says stupid s–t sometimes’

wenn20788928

I don’t know how else to say this: STOP TALKING, BRANDI. The biggest problem Brandi Glanville has right now is Brandi Glanville. What could have been a relatively minor “that’s kind of racist” moment snowballed into a terrible “Good lord, Brandi is REALLY racist” catastrophe just because Brandi would not stop going on and on about how horribly she’s being treated and how she can’t be racist because she bangs black dudes and on and on. When we last checked in on Brandi, she was ranting in a lengthy Facebook post, all about how if we REALLY knew what was happening behind-the-scenes with Joyce Giraud then we would totally take her side. There was a lot of other shiz in there too. It was a study in delusion and lack of self-awareness. So, Brandi has more crap to say to her “haters”. She went HAM on the haters in a post on her Bravo blog:

As of today I have a new outlook. No more feeling sorry for myself because I had a rough year or some pathetic, phony famewh— can’t stop talking about me and throwing bulls— labels my way. I know exactly who I am — and that is a good person who says stupid s– sometimes and lives without prejudice in my life.

I was a hot-mess for part of this season, and I fully f—ing admit that. I’d like to say thank you to the people in my life that love me through the good times and the rough times and who don’t jump ship because I’m not having my best year. Also thank you to my friends in the Twitter-verse and on social media that have been a huge support to me, even before I started this rollercoaster of a ride on reality TV. THANK YOU!!!

For the assh—s that write hateful tweets or said mean things to me because I am not perfect and clearly you are, please, please, please F— OFF, F— YOU, GO F— YOURSELF, AND FINALLY SHUT THE F— UP! 2014 is a new year and it’s going to be good! I can’t wait for this reunion. It’s about to be f—ing on!!! Bring it bitches.

[From Brandi’s Bravo blog]

“Some pathetic, phony famewh— can’t stop talking about me and throwing bulls— labels my way.” That’s Joyce, I guess? What “labels” have been thrown at Brandi? Just the big two that I know of: “drunk” and “racist”. Both of which Brandi proves over and over, right? As for the people who say “mean things” about Brandi… yeah, I’m not perfect. I never claimed to be. No one is. We all make mistakes and hopefully those mistakes become teachable moments, and we grow from those experiences. It’s an evolution. The problem seems like Brandi is devolving, right? Every year she gets drunker and meaner and it’s like she has less self-control.

As I’ve said before and I’ll say again: there is absolutely no reason this past month of “Brandi’s kind of racist” had to end up this way. She mishandled herself and her image completely, probably because… she lacks some crucial self-awareness, or possibly because she thought she would always enjoy her sympathetic “wronged woman” status, even when she has made some glaring mistakes.

My wish for Brandi’s 2014? Perhaps a good publicist who knows how to talk some sense into her. And rehab.

    Wow. Her arms and hands are banged up pretty badly. Falling into things while drunk? Punching walls?

    Tsk, tsk, tsk.

  2. heidi says:

    Take a trip over to her twitter timeline, look at the photos of her mom, dad and grandma giving the finger for world to see and you’ll understand she was raised by people just like her. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Family pride!

    • Relli says:

      Yes this what I have said all along. She wasn’t raised by Miss Porter.

    • emmie_a says:

      heidi: Yes! And she commented something about her grandma saying whatever the hell she wants to say… and it seems that Brandi takes that to mean SHE can say whatever the hell and get away with it. It’s different when an 80-something year old lady says something vs. when a 40-year old lady says the same crap. I hate her giving herself excuses to say stupid stuff. Grow.Up.

      And instead of being ‘a good person who say stupid s–t sometimes’ why not strive to be a great person who thinks before she speaks?

      I was on her side and cheering for her but I’m just sick of her now.

      • Rosa says:

        I am still in her camp. We have only seen the first three episodes and they are all from a girl trip and two of the episodes were one day. Who has not drank too much on a trip with the girls and said something we regret? Stop throwing stones from your glass houses!

      • emmie_a says:

        Rosa: My comments aren’t necessarily about Brandi’s behavior on RHOBH (I don’t watch RHOBH) – I’m talking about Brandi’s general comments and personality. And quite honestly I feel I can throw stones bc I’m around her age but I’ve managed to learn to think before I speak and I don’t continually make excuses for my behavior.

      • Delorb says:

        Never liked her. She loves to say whatever she ‘thinks’, no matter who it hurts, all under the guise of it being the ‘truth’, but she has always had thin skin when it came to other people throwing their ‘truth’ back at her.

  3. SnarkGirl says:

    She reminds me of a co-worker I once had. Sweet guy, smart and talented, but a major problem with booze. Over 2 years he too devolved, and eventually got fired for it. Same thing as Brandi, he got meaner and nastier and less and less in control as his drinking got worse. If Brandi doesn’t rehab/quit drinking 2014 is going to get very ugly for her.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree. My first husband was an alcoholic, and he became nastier, more abusive and meaner as time went on. Brandi’s attitude about criticism reminds me of him, too. No criticism was fair. *Ok, so I got totally wasted and went home with the waitress – do you have to bring up every little thing I do wrong? You’re such a nag!* She needs some help.

  4. Kiddo says:

    She’s a seemingly talentless person who says and does stupid sh*t all the time. There’s no reason for her to be on TV. My wish for her, and others in 2014, is to fade into obscurity where she belongs. Then she can say as pleases and it will only be the barkeep’s problem.

    • bettyrose says:

      I dunno. I think the presence of people like her on tv are a good warning for parents. As in make sure your kids get a decent education and have employable skills. And a sense of dignity.

      • Sullivan says:

        I agree that she serves as a public warning to parents of daughters, especially. Education and self-respect are paramount.

      • Kiddo says:

        I beg to differ. There are plenty of real life examples of selfish and badly behaved humans in the world. Paying someone and giving them a platform on TV for it only serves to glorify it and have others aspire to it. It tells people they don’t have to have talent, work hard, or be decent humans in order to be paid a fortune and benefit from being an a*hole. Plus it gluts up time slots, and by virtue of being everywhere, it pushes the genuinely talented and deserving into the abyss. I don’t think mothers need to see this crap in order to be good mothers. God help us if they do, because then something is seriously wrong.

      • bettyrose says:

        LOL, KIDDO, I was only being semi-serious. Truthfully, I don’t think these shows have much value; however, I did read Brandi’s book, in which she makes it very clear that she’s always survived on her looks (First modelling and then marriage) and never developed any job skills , so she has to take desperate measures to support herself and her children in the luxury to which they’ve become accustomed. Her example is a good reason that no one (of either gender) should count on marriage as a career plan. Things happen and all adults – especially parents – need to have some job skills to fall back on. This is just as relevant to boys and future fathers as it is to girls and future mothers.

  5. Erinn says:

    What I find interesting is how people aren’t reacting as rudely to Brandi being racist as they did to Leann supposedly being homophobic (which I didn’t view as such)….Brandi still getting passes due to her “wronged woman” status.

    • lisa2 says:

      yep.. that is about right.

      I don’t understand why women support her so much. I understand losing her husband was a hard thing. But it was how long ago. She has a good life. Most women that struggle don’t have what she has. Don’t have the opportunities. They don’t get the amount of child support she gets nor do they for the most part have a ex husband that actually spends time with their children. At some point you are a parent and you get up and be what you need to be for your children and yourself. She is ridding this cheating thing forever. It made her famous; opened doors. She made out very well.

    • Samtha says:

      Really? The Leann/homophobic thing lasted what…one article? Maybe a week at most (but more like a day) before people moved on. This Brandi thing has been going and going and going, and I haven’t seen a single person ANYwhere support her.

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Do you read this site? Even after the drunken tampon string incident she has plenty of supporters here. To the point where some suggested LR slipped her something to cause it! Every single post she still has her fan girls. It is depressing.

        I don’t read other sites, just this one. I wonder if why? Is still supporting her on JJ, which is where I think she went after she got banned.

      • Samtha says:

        I pop in to almost every Brandi thread posted here, since I’m a former fan of hers and a RHOBH addict (sadly). She may have gotten some passes or shrugs with the drunken antics over the summer and fall, but the more recent things–the race stuff and how she’s treated Joyce overall–have changed the mood. Yes, even here.

        It’s cracking me up, because on the last Brandi thread, a bunch of people were saying that the community here is too hard on Brandi while letting other celebs off the hook.

      • why? says:

        @TOT

        That’s some obsession you have with me.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Tiffany, I was the one who wondered about Leann slipping her something. I dealt with a stalker in the 90s and let me tell you, the lengths they go to are scary. Since Leann has proven herself to be insane and has a lot at her disposal, I wondered. But I am not a fangirl, and I’ve seen plenty of her supporters say that she has made and is making some huge errors, and I agree with them. I see a lot of parents, especially when their kids are getting older, revert to partying ways, as if they think they’re having a second youth. It’s stupid- people who hold good jobs and are educated, posting photos on FB of partying in South Jersey, drinking. I like Brandi and feel for her because Eddie and Leann really tried to destroy her and I think it affected her more than she wants to admit, but I don’t follow her or watch her show.

      • Kellykat says:

        @Jennifer, I agree with you. I would love to see Brandi go to rehab and get intensive therapy for what has happened to her. I don’t think she has the understanding or wisdom to deal with the relentless stalking and manipulation of her and her children by Eddie and Leann. I agree about stalkers. Until you have had the experience yourself, you have no idea of the lengths they will go to to invade your privacy and hurt you. I wondered at the time Brandi’s house was broken into if Eddie or Leann had something to do with it. It is a normal practice for stalkers.

      • emmie_a says:

        “Every single post she still has her fan girls. It is depressing.”

        Her posts used to be filled with supporters but those supporters are slowly turning. She still has her fan girls but a lot of her fans have turned on her in the past few weeks, myself included. The more she talks the less I like her.

      • John Wayne Lives says:

        Never liked BG, and you all know that. It’s interesting to see so many comments about her exactly like the ones I’ve made, coming from the people that used to skewer me for daring to side eye and call out Saint Brandi. Have a nice day. Johnny Depends FTW.. and stay gone why?.. even the people that used to agree with u don’t like you.

      • why? says:

        @TOT

        Wow, another rant about me. You and Mort really are obsessed with me! I am amazed by this odd increase in Brandi haters, especially when several of Leann’s fans were complaining that Bravo was “censoring” them from posting on Brandi’s blog – removing their comments from Brandi’s blog, and Leann’s main fans are tweeting to Joyce throughout the day(who has been doing daily interviews about Brandi ).

    • Erinn says:

      The reason there was only one article is because Leann didn’t repeatedly respond to the allegations nor say other stupid crap. She defended herself reasonably and that was that.

      What I’m saying is that people are going “oh Brandi, keep your racist mouth shut” whereas for Leann, they were like “my god, this stupid woman keeps proving what a terrible person she is. She’s sooo terrible. She’s a bully to gays. She’s a bully to her children and to Eddie because she’s a sociopath, blah blah”…

      Last I checked Leann never exposed her breasts/tampon string nor did she play tennis without underwear and with only one racquet, kissing her stepson on the lips.

      • Samtha says:

        We must be visiting different communities, then, because on places like Radar, Reality Tea, ONTD and even Brandi’s own Facebook page, people have been going all in on her.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Really? You missed the shots of Leann on the beach with Eddie and the boys, grabbing his d— in front of them? Crushing Jake under her to make out with Eddie after he was newly separated? Stripping off her clothes to make out with Liz on a balcony while Eddie took photos, the paps took photos and everyone’s kids were inside? Short shorts to the kids’ games, making out with Eddie at the games, thong bikinis when everyone else is dressed, a breast falling out of her dress on the red carpet, calling the paps to the park where she bent over her stepkids in short shorts and made out with Eddie while they played nearby? So drunk she could barely stand up and crawled all over a THIRTEEN YEAR OLD on X Factor? There are loads of photos and tweets to prove all of this.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @tiff, guess who’s back, back again, shady’s back, tell a friend!

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        I don’t know if I am convinced. No rant about fame and flynet. No incoherent ramblings and timelines.

        How can someone who is banned keep posting?

        Also, why keep bring crazy LR and all her nutso doings here? Brandi makes enough trouble for herself all on her own. I finally watched some of the crap that BH has become yesterday (I’m sick in bed with the worst flu of my life) and she was more drunk and nasty than I imagined. Her face scares me so much, it literally does not move. None of their faces move actually. I totally wasted two hours of my life that I will never get back.

      • Kellykat says:

        You must have missed the infamous Pedocake Leann had custom made for Eddie’s birthday cake. On top were figures of her and Eddie naked having sex in bed while her stepsons cowered below.

    • Hootysgram says:

      Shut up…Leann is a trainwreck…famewhore. Stick to singing and stay off the tweet and she’d be way better off.

    • Luca26 says:

      Yeah there are a few comments here talking about how the racism isn’t the reason her fans are upset with her but her treatment of Lisa. I think it comes down to the fact that the Brandi posse was so loyal they still won’t skewer her to the level they would LeeAnn and are hoping she will have a ‘come to Jesus’ moment where she changes her ways.

      • Jayna says:

        I said isn’t the only reason. Her treatment of Lisa in interviews before the show even started was the beginning of what turned many fans off. She keeps posting like everyone is being unfair and she has apologized, and my point was it has been her behavior from the beginning, bashing Lisa in interviews and then the show starts and all around her behavior just keeps getting worse and worse and mean and the drunkeness added with the racist remark. She seems to want to ignore all of her behavior and say she has apologized and people are being unfair to her about the “black person” comment because how many times can she say she’ s sorry. Her sorries always turn into more excuses and blame and just turn the fans off. She just deflects, deflects, and plays the victim in this, like she made a mistake, isn’t perfect, had a little too much to drink, and everyone is being mean to her now and F off. LOL

  6. Luca26 says:

    She really doesn’t get it. Once you say something racist to attack someone you have no leeway to play the victim. As famewhorish as Joyce may be she handled that situation well and Brandi just finally exposed herself once and for all as lowdown trash to the core.

    • Jayna says:

      This is about far more than the “black people” comment. The fans are reacting to all of Brandi’s behavior and then in her letters and blogs blaming Joyce and the show for everything. She is focusing on that because Joyce has given interviews, but Joyce can keep it up because Brandi keeps saying stuff. So back and forth. But Joyce is talking about far more than the one comment in the way she treated her, and the fans are definitely not just focused on that one thing. And her treatment of Lisa is the biggest thing that turned people off to her this year. Lisa is the fan favorite and was a good friend to Brandi. It’s clear to most fans now that she came on the show this year with an agenda against Lisa, with her buddy Yolanda, and now her buddy Carlton. She miscalculated her popularity big time and came on the show with a big head. She keeps telling the fans to wait until the show shows Joyce in a bad light coming up, the same with Lisa. She seems clueless that her behavior is so bad and mean that there is no way that anything they do can top it and she is delusional about her own behavior on this show towards those she doesn’t like.

      Joyce also said in her blog about the dinner at Yolanda’s house that during her toast in Spanish (that the host ask her to give) some of Brandi’s comments were edited out. One was “Shut the fuck up. We’re not in Miami.”

      No lie. Bravo I’m sure edited that out because of her “black person” comment already at the girls’ getaway show. Who at a nice dinner interrupts a guest giving a nice toast saying something so vile like that? She hates Joyce. I can only assume she is jealous of Joyce, someone younger and prettier than her on the show.

      • Luca26 says:

        Well for me even if I might watch a Housewife show I don’t get into the tit for tat thing because I assume it’s mostly created for drama. For me the racist B.S. that she pulled trumps anything else that went on and everything else is just the typical reality show team stuff that varies from season to season. If she acted genuinely apologetic or remorseful I might cut her some slack with the petty rivalries.

      • Samtha says:

        She has continually said racist comments to Joyce, beyond the “you must be black” comment. (Please, no arguing about whether one can be racist toward a Latina when they’re both Caucasian.) The Miami comment, calling her “Hoyce,” and “Hoycita”…it’s all ugly.

      • Jayna says:

        Samtha, if she had just apologized for the “black person” comment and left it at that, fans would have let it go. She says she has apologized over and over and doesn’t understand why people don’t let it go and blames Joyce. But she is the one that apologizes and then deflects by attacking Joyce and keeps it going. So that’s why it keeps going, because she never really says I’m sorry if she has to throw Joyce in the apology with a “but.”

        The Hoycita comment, when she was sober, I might add, the next day was crass and showed me when Brandi hates someone she will go to those type of comments. I had forgotten about that comment until you brought it up. You’re right. No, you can definitely be racist towards hispanics/latinos.

        The Miami comment is telling that she definitely makes racist comments towards Joyce as a putdown when drunk, but that wasn’t aired so isn’t in the context of what fans were first responding to so angrily. It’s in Joyce’s blog. A lot of people don’t even read the blogs so don’t know about that comment just put out recently by Joyce in it.

        There is just an all around ugliness in Brandi’s behavior this season. It’s really off-putting.

      • Rosa says:

        @jayna

        I think you are actually Lisa or Joyce!!

  7. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Ah yes, the classic “Sorry I’m not perfect like you!” defense.

    She really does act like a perpetual teenager and it’s so very unattractive.

  8. GiGi says:

    I know she doesn’t think she needs rehab… but come on. Every time we see her drink (on this heavily edited show) she’s not drinking socially, she’s drinking to get wasted. She is always drinking more than the people she’s with – to the point that she loses any social restraint. It’s hardly like, “Oh we all went out and got blitzed!” and more, “Everyone else had a glass of wine and I had 12. It was awesome!”

    If she could bring the drama without the alcohol, I’d agree that she was critical to the show. As it stands now, we’re just watching her be a mean drunk while everyone else just feels awkward around her.

  9. Kcaia says:

    I can feel her on that, because sometimes I say things with perfectly innocent intentions and it’ll just come out all wrong. Like yesterday, I was trying to tell a friend that I wouldn’t care if my kids were gay except to worry about how people would treat them, but then I compared it to being ugly. Which to me that stuff doesn’t matter, if you’re ugly or gay or whatever color, it’s who you are inside, but I know others will judge by those things and others judgments make ones life harder, but I felt like it sounded horrible, saying gay is like ugly, but to me there’s nothing wrong with either…and so I apologized and emphasized a little. My friend is a gay rights activist and so likely is more sensitive towards what and how I said it then others would be.

    • heidi says:

      Except her intent is to hurt. I don’t think Brandi is completely vile but she has a very large swath of meanness to her. And it has nothing to do with her divorce. Perhaps it was the cause of her divorce. Something to consider.

      • V4Real says:

        The cause of her divorce is Eddie’s cheating. I knew about and bared witness to his cheating long before he hooked up with LeAnn. It happen in a gentleman’s club in NY when he was on this show called Third Watch. Perhaps she didn’t become so vile until after he left her, another thing to consider.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Right. Kcaia’s intention was to make a point, not to be hurtful. We’ve all said things that came out wrong or could be interpreted as hurtful when we didn’t mean for them to be. I’m not sure that’s what happened here with Brandi.

    • Jayna says:

      Her fans are criticizing her for far more than one little comment. That’s just what she is focusing on with her and Joyce. The fans are lashing out at her for her mean treatment of Lisa heading into the show, bashing her in any interview she did, her backstabbing Lisa on the show, her crude, drunken behavior and mean girl tactics all day to Joyce, not just the “black person” comment. Then the last show she’s drunk again at a classy sitdown dinner. The host, David Foster, asks Joyce to say a toast in Spanish, and there Brandi is drunk and blurting out rude comments to her. Classy. Brandi definitely has a mean streak in her.

      • V4Real says:

        Speaking of Foster’s party did you notice that Yolanda never tried to shut Brandi up. Brandi is a mess but I can’t stand that holier than thou pretentious Yolanda. I remember when she first came on the show and they all took a trip together. All the ladies except Yolanda was drunk. The next day she told Kyle I can’t be around a bunch of drunk women. Kyle’s reply was then you don’t want to be around any of my friends. For a woman who doesn’t want to be around drunk women, she sure does hang around Brandi a lot. She never says anything to Brandi when Brandi is being offensive or rude. Yolanda was being a bitch indirectly even with the placemats. She put hearts on Brandi and Lisa’s names but left them off the other girls. Her excuse was she did it subconsciously but yet told Kyle it was because their friendship had to be earned. She’s a piece of work.

      • mayamae says:

        Yolanda’s blog on Bravo is now claiming “Left lobe paralysis” of her brain. Don’t you know that means nothing she says is her fault. She also used her illness as an excuse to not buy Christmas gifts for anyone – including her kids.

    • V4Real says:

      I do wish Brandi would just shut up already. The only thing she is doing is giving people who already don’t like her more ammunition against her. She’s a mess and I’m sure she is aware of that. If you have watched the show religiously as I have you will know that the victim has now become the assailant. She was Kim’s and Kyle target when she first arrived on the scene and now she is doing the same thing to Joyce. The shit is really going to hit the fan and she soon turns against Lisa. Lisa is the only person who tries to talk Brandi down when she sees Brandi turning into a drunken mess. The rest, including that fake ass Yolando never tries to intervene when Brandi is being mean drunk Brandi. Now I don’t believe she’s a racist anymore than I believe Steve Martin or Britney Spears are; they also made stereotypical remarks about other groups but somehow they got a pass.

      Anyways I’m looking forward to the reunion for this scripted reality show.

      • Jayna says:

        The reunion is going to be an epic mess. Brandi’s vision was she formed her alliances, Yolanda, Carlton, Kyle and Kim, and they were going to turn on Lisa in the reunion. Surprise surprise. It’s going to go far different. And she underestimated meek little Joyce that she thought she could taunt and bully. Joyce really stays on topic and counteracts anything Brandi says with facts of what happened. In Brandi’s drunken memory she thinks she has something on them. scenes that weren’t shown or coming up, but Joyce remembers far more than Brandi and without a drunken haze distorting it. Brandi says there are scenes edited out that girls weekend which shows why she turned on Joyce. There could be nothing Joyce did as a host that deserved someone being so mean and taunting at dinner. Joyce then responded that she wishes they would show scenes edited out because it shows Brandi was far worse in her behavior than even seen on TV. I believe her.

      • mayamae says:

        I’ve called it the ultimate irony and I find it hilarious. Brandi rose to popularity by riding the victim train after being mean girled by Kim and Kyle. Brandi is stupidly and drunkenly handing that victim crown right over to Joyce. She’s so stupid (or drunk) she doesn’t realize she’s both driving her fans away in droves, AND giving boring Joyce a storyline.

  10. Christin says:

    The more she talks, the more I think she cannot handle criticism at all. She keeps deflecting blame and suggesting others have a problem if they dare not excuse her behavior.

    People who cannot handle even constructive criticism are really difficult to be around. They tune out any other side of things other than the cries of their own fragile ego.

    • Jayna says:

      This is the absolute truth right here. I couldn’t figure it out but came up with the same conclusion. It’s really why she turned on Lisa ultimately. She got tired of Lisa not agreeing with her drunken antics and saying so. That was the beginning of the end for them.

    • Christin says:

      Jayna, this has puzzled me as well. Brandi had some degree of goodwill because I think people could identify with her in some way (underdog, wronged woman, divorced mother picking up the pieces, etc.).

      The drinking and mean girl behavior are just pieces of a bigger puzzle. Reading her semi-apologies finally made me realize she likely cannot handle any form of criticism. I had not thought of Lisa and the deterioration of their alliance, but that certainly fits!

      • Relli says:

        It happens to all of them at some point, especially if the RHW is their first taste of Fame. I call it the Tamara Barney Complex or TBC also know as getting TBFB (too big for your britches).

        Now I am an original viewer of this mess of a franchise like so OG that I watched the first season of OC when it originally aired. They are ALL likable, sweet and yes even interesting in their first seasons (Joyce I am looking at you girl) but give them a few and they become just like the others. Tamra is however the exception. She was the first one to grab the crown and run. When Tams entered the scene she was cute, silly and refreshing addition to the ladies who were somewhat older and looking at empty nests. Tamara jumped in and stole the show and some commission from Gina. But when they gave her another new young girl (Wretchen) to add to the blonde team she came at her with her claws FOR MANY MANY MANY SEASONS. Until Tamra feigned a friendship with her, then got her own wedding spinoff instead of her and when she was kicked off was all MEH we were never that close anyway.

        I think in Miss Andy’s mind B was going to be his BH Tamra, a mom with a second chance at life and love who may be a little trashy but still fun and can clean up well in a gown. The difference is that Tamra knows how to play ball and B does not. B thought all the goodwill and fame was a given not something she was going to have to work at and maintain. Honestly I am little worried about her becuase once Andy is not protecting you and letting others come at you on the regular that means he is close to done. The Barbies he likes he would not let this happen to. You cross him and start acting a fool hes going to let it all hang out and then wash his hands of you by saying he had no choice in the matter. Just ask Lynne about when the she and the whole world found out the truth of her family’s financial situation. That wasn’t Andy’s fault, maybe they shouldn’t have exaggerated the truth and lied about how well off they really weren’t.

        B you in danger girl.

      • Christin says:

        I don’t watch the show (just scan recaps), so I appreciate the background here. If B doesn’t have the same background (wealth) or backing from Andy, then it sounds like she really is in dangerous waters unless she can get her ego in check.

        Earlier this year, I thought she had massively messed up her book launch. I thought she did way too much talking and revealing basically the few major plot points of the book. Then her child singer nemesis started stirring the pot and I truly think it helped her book sales. How perceptions can change in just a few months.

      • Relli says:

        @ Christin, I think I watch these shows with different eyes than everyone else. Yes there was a time and a place where I would care and get invested in the wives and their character but now I just see them for what they are PURE ENTERTAINMENT. What can I say Miss Andy is my spirit animal. There is so much going on behind the scenes with Bravo right now its more entertaining then what is on the air. If I had on wish for 2013 it would have been to be a fly on the wall during those meetings when the change up in programming was announced.

      • claire says:

        “Miss Andy”? What is your reasoning for using that term?

      • Relli says:

        Well CLAIRE the main site I do my reality recap reading refers to him as such, and I don’t know it stuck. I wouldn’t read into it too much.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      Christin, ITA! I really like the way you astutely and concisely made your dead on accurate assessment of the drunk’s victim mindset. Kudos! (Not really, because your perceptiveness probably means you’ve had the distinct displeasure of having someone like Brandi in your life.)

      I wish Brandi would Google the Celebitchy posters’ comments and come to the crushing realization her boys are only a year or two away from seeing she can’t handle even their complaints. Her son’s will be not only be tuned out, but Brandi will end up viciously blaming & attacking them for ‘disloyalty’ or ‘ungratefulness’ for ‘all shes’ done for them’.

  11. Jayna says:

    This was the final nail in the coffin for Brandi for a lot of fans of the show. That horrible Facebook letter she took down after 95 percent of the response from fans to her was negative on her own Facebook page. I think someone said it was like over 600 people if I remember right. So what does she do, put up not a blog about the most recent show like you are supposed to do, but a blog basically telling all lthe fans that had anything negative to say about her to F off, and to bring it on bitches the next year,how great 2014 was going to be, talking like a 20-year-old, an immature 20-year-old. I didn’t mean to insult 20-year-olds. I looked at the posts on Bravo to her and only a few positive and the rest saying that was it, they washed their hands of her.

    It gets worse. She has her mom, dad, and grandmother giving the finger to anyone who doesn’t like how she is in three separate photographs on twitter and then Brandi tweeting to suck it. Looking at those photos on her twitter feed of older relatives posing and giving the finger is just gross. Talk about looking like a white trash family. Merry Christmas. LOL

    Then she makes sure to get photographed on a sweet family outing with her boys yesterday going to the movies with a tank top that says suck it and made sure her alerted pap got the shot. Aw, how sweet, wearing a shirt that says “Suck It” with her little boys. What a mom.

    There are no words for how asinine she looks. I honestly can’t imagine at this point she will sell even close to what she sold before with her new book. A lot of Bravo fans on her blog were telling her they bought the first book and had no interest in buying the second book.

    • Jane says:

      I am totally there with you on the last part of your comment. I actually had the book in my Amazon wish list ready to purchase, but after the last couple weeks of her BS, I just washed my hands of her. The only two people I feel sorry for in this whole cluster f*** she has created (along with her ex and that Me Ann creature) are her two boys. I feel terribly sorry for them.

    • ya says:

      She reminds me of Leann at her worst a couple of years ago – giving people the finger, not willing or able to accept any criticism etc. At least Leann can sing and seems to have hired a better pr team now.

  12. bammer says:

    She’s calling Joyce a famewhore though. Like seriously? Brandi thinks she’s the heart of the show but screaming & insulting people is not entertaining. Next season will be her last I bet. She turned on Lisa and Yolanda will probably distance herself. She won’t have an allies.

  13. GeeMoney says:

    I don’t think that she’s a racist… I just think that she needs to stop drinking, see a shrink and re-evaluate her life.

    And definitely hire a good publicist.

  14. Jacqueline says:

    So she’s got a new outlook? That’s funny. The “new” Brandi sounds exactly like the same old Brandi. Oh, irony, I love thee.

  15. Mich says:

    This woman needs help. Too bad she doesn’t want to accept it.

  16. eliza says:

    Sorry, but anyone who makes a point of saying they are a good person is not a good person. Good people don’t need to make declarations of that sort, ever. She is simply an asshole and a whiner who thinks she is a somebody when all she is amounts to being a foul mouthed, ignorant cry baby who gained a crumb of fame by having a cheating Z list Hollywood actor as a husband. She needs to STFU and take care of her children by acting like a decent woman and not like a high school feshman.

    Can’t wait till this dumb trick goes back into obscurity from whence she came. Talk about yawn worthy!

    • emmie_a says:

      GREAT point Eliza! I recently had this conversation with a friend of mine – I was complaining about the last few guys I dated and how they were constantly telling me what great guys they were. And I’m thinking, ok, quit telling me how great you are and show me how great you are because actions speak louder than words in this instance.

  17. bluhare says:

    Isn’t this to keep the TV show going? It’s scripted, right? So they keep the crap going off camera so everyone will be so aghast they’ll tune in to see how bad it can get? If this is someone’s idea of entertainment, I’ll be building my compound now. The four horsemen are coming.

    • LAK says:

      isn’t it amazing how people don’t realise this basic truth about this scripted show. The minute she becomes boring she’ll be dropped from the show. Happened with every single other castmate who became boring, including the ones they try out every season.

      • Relli says:

        LAK did you see those pictures of JK out and about with Lilly Ghalichi and Carmen Electra!?!?!?! OH it is so on. The examiner said they are out shopping their own series but I think, this may be the foundation of what we have been talking about. Have you noticed the crossovers popping up, the Shahs on the Pump Rules and so on…… The things that make you hmmmmmmmmmmm!

      • LAK says:

        Relli – i sure did. What blog do you recap on? i’m on vulture. Through it, i also found this recap: http://bonerpoetry.tumblr.com/post/67547486194/rhobh-episode-3-the-dora-the-witch-and-the-kyle

        i can’t stand Andy sneaking Vanderpump rules into RHOBH. I tried watching that and goodness it was badly behaved. And when will that one girl stop dining out on having had an affair with Eddie Cibrian? i think it’s brought up every episode. Mind you, i want their summer uniform – the little scarf like dresses. How do they serve in those?

        JK is desperate for a show. Her desperation is amazing. She’s as bad as MCFR. She’ll take any bit of notoriety and try and turn it into her own show – see the BS with Brandi.

        i don’t watch shahs and i didn’t catch the VR with the crossover, but anything JK does these days makes me think she’s desperate for her own show [and reality fame].

        On a different note, you and i seem to be the only people on this thread who see these shows for the entertainment they are supposed to be. Perhaps this board isn’t the one for us. Everyone here takes it so seriously and are so invested in it even if it is to hate Brandi. I don’t think i can ever open a Brandi thread ever again. I can’t stand the hate and the judgement especially because it feels to personal and viceral. If only they’d save their hate for someone who truly deserved it like MCFR who is a despicable person on TV and in reality.

    • Samtha says:

      Of course it’s scripted to an extent, but if viewers hate you enough, you don’t get brought back. See: Faye Resnick.

      I don’t think Brandi’s recent meltdown is scripted at all. Who wants to be thought of as a racist? Do you think this is helping her upcoming book sales any? It’s a PR disaster. Bravo also wouldn’t post Brandi’s blog on their site–that was her “open letter” that she put on Facebook–because she revealed that they’d filmed certain scenes later and added them in. While informed viewers know they do this already, many, many viewers did not. I can’t see that making Bravo happy at all.

  18. Ginger says:

    It’s so rough after a divorce. Especially when the ex-spouse betrayed you in a humiliating way. I feel for Brandi. I’ve been down this road. It took a couple of years but I got my crap together. I know a lot of people are throwing shade at her but I still root for her to succeed. I hope she can find the inner strength to cope and become independent. BUT that being said, she’s on a reality program that is known to take the stars down a difficult road. I’ve seen divorce, criminal charges, financial ruin, etc. I know Brandi has said again and again that she’s grateful to the Real Housewives show because she can provide for her boys. She should tread carefully because it may come back to bite her. I agree with Kaiser that in 2014 she needs to find a new publicist and rehab her image (and perhaps go to real rehab).

    • Luca26 says:

      Nothing personal but I’m sick of the ‘a bad divorce makes everything you do ok because you are in pain’. No one sound looped the racist crap onto the show she said it and she needs to apologize and zip it. That’s the reason for the shade.

      • eliza says:

        Ditto. As if bad behavior can be excused or should be excused because life deals one a shitty hand. There are many women who fare far worse in divorces and relationships yet manage to maintain a sense of decency and honor.

      • ya says:

        Agree – plus all of them – BG, EC, LR – live in a hollywood/celebrity bubble and have done so for most of their adult lives (and for LR, most of her life, period)…. Obviously that will have impacts, both during BG’s and EC’s marriage and afterward – it isn’t like divorce is unusual in hollywood and EC is a serial cheater.

    • Emily C. says:

      I am thoroughly sick of the “being cheated on and divorcing someone excuses ALL” mentality. I’ve seen it applied to other people, excusing every blasted thing anyone does — hey, where can I get some of that? Being cheated on is starting to look like a good deal, if it means I can act like a stupid, out-of-control 2-year old and keep getting sympathy.

      Brandi is a wealthy spoiled brat. Her language can’t even be explained by the fact that she’s an alcoholic; I’ve known more than my share of alcoholics, and none of them are either racist or stupid. Brandi’s just a jerk, and that’s all there is to it.

  19. Sarah says:

    Brandi is a mess who might be ignorant or drink too much at times, but she’s obviously not a racist. There are horribly prejudice people in this world who are truly racist and to call a remark on a stereotype the same thing is just grasping at straws. If you hate Brandi, at least focus on one of her real flaws

  20. MsDaisy says:

    Lol I’m in the minority here but I cannot wait until Brandi rips Joyce apart at the reunion. I don’t think Micheal will be allowed to sit beside her so she won’t be able to be stuck on him while he defends her :D

  21. Skye says:

    “For the assh—s that write hateful tweets or said mean things to me because I am not perfect and clearly you are, please, please, please F— OFF, F— YOU, GO F— YOURSELF, AND FINALLY SHUT THE F— UP! 2014 is a new year and it’s going to be good! I can’t wait for this reunion. It’s about to be f—ing on!!! Bring it bitches.”

    This would be funny if it came from a teenager. The fact that it comes from a 40-something mother of two is just… sad. I guess 40 is the new 13.

  22. Snowpea says:

    Well I may be the only Brandi fangirl left here at CB…

    I really feel for this woman. Yes, she has probably let fame go to her head but I still believe that she’s a good girl, a good mum and a good friend.

    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again…it takes f*cking YEARS to get over a divorce as messy as hers. I got divorced in 2003 and I am only just back on track now. Seriously. I mean, really, properly over it.

    I don’t think she’s a racist. I think she’s a mess. But a lot of people are messes. Life is a messy, complicated ride. You make mistakes, you learn, you pick yourself up. She’s just taking a bit longer to get it.

    Cut the poor woman some slack.

    • Ming says:

      I’m still hoping she can come back from it all. I too think a messy divorce can take years to come back from, especially since leann still is going at it with her passive aggressiveness on twitter, and couple that with everything she says or does gets ripped apart by strangers on the internet every day.
      And since when is swearing or using the F word soo horrible? Honestly, some uptight people need to get a grip..it’s just language. Yes, harsh language, but since when do we all have to speak the same and “be proper” with our language?
      I swear every day and if I had people, especially strangers trying to tell me to watch my mouth..I’d swear even more. People have their granny panties in a knot.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      I don’t think I ever qualified as a fan, but I did and do like her. She’s a decent person who has a rough time with an ex that wants her life in the toilet and the ex’s new wife who is all too willing to use money and fame to help that become a reality. I don’t know how she stayed sane throughout the boys’ early years when Eddie and Leann would deliberately use her sons to torment her and take them places and not allow her access to her own kids. However, she originally appealed to a lot of people and she could do so again. She went from no power to public power- she needs to find middle ground.

    • Alita says:

      Hi Snowpea,

      Everyone in the world has problems, whether or not they’re the ones we personally identify with or consider sufficiently significant. It takes time to get past things – but the world keeps turning and you are judged by the way you act and treat people, no all-encompassing allowances. This goes x100 for someone with a job (can’t say ‘career!’) based on public popularity, that essentially requires people watch and discuss them to keep that job.

      So people have to say something, Brandi wants and needs them to talk, so they respond to her never-ceasing comment flow – and it is messy, you’re right. Personally I think fans feel betrayed, so they are venting their feelings a tad. But what she has done is be so nasty, for such a sustained period, that there’s plenty of fodder. And it seems entirely reasonable that in reviewing all these acts, that people decide they’re not singular abberations but truly indicative of Brandi’s attitudes and ways.

      I replied to your comment because, with respect, I don’t like the suggestion that when people have a personal issue that they should have generalised allowances made over a long period – they shouldn’t become untouchable. If Brandi flew off the handle at something about infidelity i’d understand. But she doesn’t get to be a bigot (her casual reliance on stereotypes is long standing) because she went through a nasty divorce. We should be careful with such subjective ‘passes.’

      I do admire that you’ve continued to support Brandi – she’s lucky to have such a committed fan.

      • Christin says:

        Very well said! B’s questionable comments have been numerous, particularly since she had some success with her book. One example that comes to mind (of many) is her tweet about an airport agent. Rather than take responsibility for showing up with plenty of time to make it through the lines, she chose to make some very rude comments about the person’s appearance.

        That incident had nothing to do with storylines, bad edits or someone attacking her over the divorce. I also assume she was sober at the time.

    • Kellykat says:

      Hi Snowpea, I love reading your comments on here. You’re right about what is still happening to Brandi, it was awful and messy and is a continuing public nightmare of stalking and nastiness from a wealthy ex, for a mom with kids. I feel for Brandi too. That’s why I believe Brandi needs more than just fans and online support, she needs real professional help. And I think she would benefit from an extended time of abstaining from alcohol to reevaluate how it is affecting her life. I urge her to do this for her kids.

    • emmie_a says:

      Snowpea: No no no. I have to totally absolutely disagree with you. People deal with horrible life circumstances on a daily basis. I am dealing with a horrible disease right now and I’m in a really bad place physically and mentally — does that give me an excuse to be a shitty person and say and do whatever I please? NO WAY! Not even close!! I would think less of myself if I gave myself such liberties.

      There are great quotes about this but I’m too lazy to look them up, so in my own words: You can let your circumstances bring you down and destroy you — or you can (try) to find the silver lining and let your circumstances make you a better and stronger person. It’s a choice.

      Brandi has been given a lot of opportunities and chances since her divorce. A lot of new doors have been opened for her. She has been given waay more than your average divorced woman. And look what she’s doing with her newfound wealth and fame. It shows the type of person she is. And in my point of view it’s a total waste.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        What a great post, emmie_a!

        I am so proud of you and admire you so much for deciding to be kind and for not taking your pain out on other people. That’s not an easy thing to do. It’s really cool that you’re sharing your thoughts and ideas here, even in the midst of dealing with rotten circumstances.

        I pray/hope/vibe that somehow something gets better for you. In the meantime, please know strangers that don’t even know you still care about you and want nothing but the best for you!

        I agree that none of us are special snowflakes that are spared life’s trials of illness and death, and most of us have been betrayed at one time as well. Everyone has their turn for awful things to happen to them, and no one is an exception to that rule.

        How you deal with life’s inevitable setbacks and roadblocks is, however, how we differentiate ourselves. You can either decide to become a person with good character or a person who decides tragedy somehow entitles them to a ‘get out of jail free card’ to be nasty or to drown their sorrows. Everyone has that choice of how we react to life’s inevitable horrors.

    • Gia says:

      I totally agree Snowpea… Fangirling right next to you!

    • Emily C. says:

      Cut the poor woman some slack.

      No.

      Women living in Saudi Arabia who are not allowed to drive or vote. A young girl was recently shot in Afghanistan for advocating that girls be educated. Women are raped all the time in the United States.

      Brandi was cheated on by her idiot husband, whom she chose to marry in the first place. Now she runs around getting drunk and saying horrible things. The fact that her ex-husband is an ass doesn’t make her any less of one. There are too many women in the world who actually need sympathy for me to bother with this rich, famous woman whose claim to fame is solely predicated on having been cheated on.

  23. dontbuyit says:

    Nothing new. The general theme, A sob story, lame excuses, someone out to get her and feeble attempts to acknowledge responsibility. Not because it’s the right thing, but to appease the public so it doesn’t affect her standing on RH and cost her her job

    ” F— OFF, F— YOU, GO F— YOURSELF, AND FINALLY SHUT THE F— UP! t’s about to be f—ing on!!! Bring it bitches.” Was that really necessary. No, but it gets the attention she needs to stay in the spotlight. “So again, remind us Ms Glanville who is the fame w____”

    Brandi is losing fans and her career is d list at best. Once she blows it, there won’t be another chance. She doesn’t have a industry talent that pardons her behavior. Unlike her arch nemesis, who should be blacklisted for being imo, a huge narcissistic C u next Tuesday. That is the one advantage the c u next Tuesday will always have over Brandi, unfortunately.

  24. Barrett says:

    Don’t over analyze. She is just not a bright person.

  25. TeresaMaria says:

    I am sorry, but Brandi does come across really dumb.
    It seems like she has never read a book in her life and just her tweets give me headache. I am not saying you should graduate from Yale or write your tweets like Shakespeare to be considered bright, but she just seems ignorant and only interested in her own little world.
    P.S. I have always thought people who use the f-word on regular bases do not have the ability (or vocabulary) to express themselves in any other way. It’s not brave or honest or whatever – it is just pathetic

  26. shellybean says:

    She doesn’t just stay stupid shit. She says uncalled for mean shit. And she’s a bigger famewhore than Joyce is. As her constant babbling on about herself indicates.

    I think she’s jealous of Joyce. It was very apparent during the last ep at the dinner party at Yo’s. It was all over her face. She was so jealous she was practically foaming at the mouth.

  27. ValleyK says:

    so i actually commented on Brandi’s official FB page saying how she shouldve made a real apology and how her “joke” was more effective, negatively, for so many reasons and she was wiser than that and should own up, since she supposedly is all about “keeping it real”. she responded to my comment(i was the only one typing over two sentences that werent just BRANDY <3 U KEEP IT REAL GURL all by white women). She said she had already apologized, what else did people want? i got sick of trying to inform the ignorant and unliked her page, unfollowed her on twitter, and until she truly realizes what she did, not feed into her crap. i really did like her before. she handled it well for a while.

  28. Ivy says:

    Before the latter half of this year I used to like Brandi and sympathized with her financial situation and divorce. I followed her on twitter when she had about a hundred followers and was being bullied constantly by MeAnn and her minions. I remember she was studying to get a real estate license to support herself, because she had no income and needed a job. I followed all her stories on CB, was happy when she got on RHBH, and even bought her book. However, now I am revolted by her.

    I do not sympathize with her and I will not buy her next book. Her actions this year have been beyond anything I’ve ever seen from her before. It started with her smearing Lisa, then progressed to her many drunken escapades and foul mouth and behavior. Her recent comments, drunken states, and the handling of the Joyce situation were the final nail in the coffin. I know I am not the only one–I see the glaring absence of some familiar commentators who used to support Brandi on this site. Their lack of comments (along with my own until now) show that the tide has turned.
    I don’t regret being a previous fan of hers. I did (and still do) admire some of the previous things she’s done for herself and enjoyed some of the entertainment she previously provided, but it doesn’t mean I’m going to turn a blind eye to her current actions. She truly has changed. Her previous flaws are amplified by a hundred and the fame and victimhood has made her think she’s invincible. Goodbye Brandi.

    • Gia says:

      That’s all fine, but please keep in mind that a lot of this trash talking and twitter drama is made up for story lines and exaggerated for the purpose of attracting viewers. Don’t hold it against her too intensely. She’s just playing the game…

      • Zbornak Syndrome says:

        @Gia:
        Being carried out of a bar with your crotch, boobs and tampon string showing because you got so hammered you can’t walk is all for a story line too? That’s what did it for me. What kind of a moron, who KNOWS that paps are following you to take pics that your kids and ex will see, does that? Brandi Glanville. IQ of about 40 apparently. No longer a fan either.

      • Jayna says:

        Not everything is scripted or done for the show. Brandi has said people can’t complain about bad edit and should own their behavior. Sure. A lot of things are set up to bring them together and hope for drama and the women might exaggerate an argument. But Brandi drinks to excess. No one forced her to do that for the show. She does it as she does in her personal life too. She chose to attack Joyce and be rude not because the show told her to to that degree. She felt Joyce sold her out to Lisa about a phone call she made badmouthing Lisa, and she had it in for her. She might have caused a scene for the show to bring the drama, but she was so trashed she wasn’t going through some script. She was just a drunk mess attacking. Lisa was Brandi’s friend. Brandi turning on her is real. They aren’t speaking. Lisa has been nonplussed and Brandi says we will see why. And as far as Joyce, Brandi hates her. You can see it in her face. Jealous or mad that she dared to fight back with Brandi? I don’t know.

        Brandi had an agenda going into the show all right. That was to turn on Lisa and have her gang now that she was top dog backing her. It just backfired on her and what is happening is out of her control. She thought she could bully some meek beauty queen. Wrong. The beauty queen has balls and Brandi is furious with the way she is being criticised now and can’t take it. So is acting like an immature, crude, teenager attacking in her blogs and then playing the victim.

        Quite a few Real Housewives on different shows have turned off viewers so much with their behavior that they are gone. Jill Zarin is a big one that the fans wanted gone after turning fans off with her antics and she was hugely popular before that for several seasons. Andy did listened and let her go. Brandi had huge popularity going into this season. No one told her to be such an idiot on the show and in her blogs to lose her complete fanbase practically. It is all her doing and unbelievably stupid to put up a blog like she did telling anybody criticising her, which she coniders her haters, to go F themselves. She didn’t think she needed Lisa anymore and had a big head. It shows a lot about Brandi, how she acts once she thought she was the show, as she said, they wouldn’t have a show without her. Jill said the same thing. But once you’ve crossed lines and fans don’t really like you anymore, it’s hard to get your popularity back and many end up off the show.

      • Ivy says:

        Actually Gia, her behavior on the show is only a fraction of the reason why I and many others can no longer tolerate Brandi. They include but are not limited to: stumbling around drunk in a wisp of a dress with her t!ts and a$s and tampon string showing, attacking people who criticize your racist remarks as fame whores (pot, meet kettle!), posting ridiculous facebook rants, telling people to eff off, posting pictures of your family flipping the bird, whining about being a poor single mom while carrying around a $5,000 purse and sporting face injections whose cost could feed a family for a year, saying the show you are lucky to get a paycheck from would not even exist without you, etc, etc. She is so full of her own self-importance she can’t even see what a mess she is.

      • emmie_a says:

        ‘She’s just playing the game…’

        Gia: That is the excuse I was using for Brandi for a long time. But then I realized even if she’s just playing the game, she’s doing a shitty job of playing. There are better ways to play the game – and win. She’s not going that route.

      • Gia says:

        Well… Different strokes I guess and I agree that whole tampon night was super ugly. Hopefully it was a one off, which it seems to be.

  29. sal says:

    what does it mean to stupid chit sometimes? I think when she opens her mouth anytime, chit falls out!

  30. Gia says:

    Errrr…I’m not seeing the big deal here. Racist alcoholic is pretty severe…I think people are using those terms too liberally. I don’t think Brandi is either of those things. I’m 35, a mother and ‘professional’ as are my girlfriends and we are not that different from brandi. Honestly. We go out for dinner, end up drunk, slurr, stay stupid sh-t. We call each other hos and curse like sailors and end up at dive bars. IMO, Brandi is the most real because of her flaws and vulnerability. I’d give Joyce a hard time too after a few drinks. That chick is annoying with her holier than thou act. “Baby soulmate best friend blessed amazing” bleerrrgg shut the f-ck up for real!

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      Gia, you sound just like my mom. I’m an adult now and avoid her whenever I possibly can. You still have time; you can have ‘fun’ with your friends, or get a grip and put your children first. It’s your choice the kind of relationship you end up with your grown kids.

      I am really sorry I’m being so harsh. Your post hit a nerve. I’m not sure you realize how much your children look up to you; they are little sponges, watching everything you do and hearing from THEIR FRIENDS all about your drunken antics.

      You are still young, and I think with a little imagination you can find a TON of ways to have fun that don’t involve drunken girls’ nights out. I hope you know I’m on your side, and I’m only telling you all this because I know you love your kids and don’t know how your late nights are affecting them.

      Gia, the big difference between you and Brandi is that Brandi was not on a private night out with friends. She was being filmed for a show being broadcast to millions along with her cast members. Cast members, NOT friends.

      Everyone can tell she has a serious issue with alcohol. Having been around alcoholics, it is easy to see the signs and symptoms someone with alcohol dependence has: inability to control their intake, drinking to the point of oblivion, inability to take responsibility for your actions and deflecting the blame, denial that you have a problem…

      Lots of people do, Gia. And it’s not the end of the world or over-analyzed. Brandi gets it because she is on a show, so she affords us all of the ability to analyze and use as much hyperbole as possible. What you described doesn’t automatically make you a bad mother, despite what Sloane is suggesting.

    • LAK says:

      Gia, move to Britain. We’d never brand you a bad mother for a drink with your friends.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Gia bluntly described getting wasted with her friends in public and cursing each other out ‘like sailors’, being like Brandi, and basically saying there’s nothing wrong with Brandi’s behavior. If you live in any smallish community, or even if your kids have playdates with your mates’ children, they ARE going to hear all about it. Maybe my mistake is taking Gia’s comment at face value, and it was just hyperbole like Claire suggested.

        LAK, even in Britain, there’s a HUGE difference between having ‘a drink with your friends’ and drunkenly falling out of your dress with your boobs & tampon hanging out, making catty racist remarks, and sleeping with a guy in a Porta Potty. C’mon!

      • Gia says:

        LAK – :) I live in Canada and I’m tame in comparison to many!

      • LAK says:

        Sloane Wyatt: We simply have a different attitude to alcohol consumption than you guys and yes, people do behave that badly on a night out. You’d be eternally pearl clutching if you moved here.

    Brandi stinks and ruined RHOBH.

    I looked onto Bravo’s blog comments; this time last year, it was filled with positive comments. Now, it is well over 95% negative.

    The first season I rooted for Brandi but no more. She is a better fit for the RHOOC. She has more in common with trailer park Tamara Barney than Lisa, Joyce, Yolanda and the other women on ROOBH. They are out of Brandi’s league. Her drunken behavior is irresponsible and she is ultimately responsible the racist rants and other verbal misfits. She’s a woman in her 40′s..time to grow up. She creates a lot of drama on the show but she also cheapens the brand..well if you can call it a brand. I have a young son and personally, I would be mortified if he saw pictures of me drunkenly stumbling around..not to mention the stuff she says and does on the show. I truly feel sorry for her boys.

  34. Kikio says:

    If she were a good person, she wouldn’t say s**t things.

  35. Jaded says:

    OK, my 2 cents’ worth…I refuse to watch these RHO[insertnamehere] shows because they actually demean women. The largely male producers deliberately choose women lacking entirely in social graces, intelligence, dignity or purpose in life other than to spend money, drink and catfight. As with male music industry executives creating the hyper-sexualized Miley Cyrus’s and Rihanna’s of the world, male TV executives are stereotyping RHO women as vulgar, vapid wastes of air.

    I’m saddened that women are being portrayed like this, but moreso because they are willingly selling their souls to the devil for fame and fortune, but negatively influencing how society perceives women in general.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      ITA, Jaded! I don’t watch any of them either! However, I DID sporadically watch the first season of RHOBH for the deliciously catty Camille.

      Patriarchy sucks so hard and is sooo insidious that it took awhile for me to recognize how damaging the show was to women, especially the portrayal of wealthy women as vacuous materialistic snobs. *ashamed I watched*

      Obviously, I somewhat keep up with the gossip though. Brandi makes a great villainess!

    • Emily C. says:

      Yep, this. It’s almost impossible to find a show these days that doesn’t run on pure misogyny. I was watching an old episode of Cheers last night, and thinking of how much better women were portrayed in it than we are now! We have gone so far backwards, except we are far more sexualized now than we were in the 50s! It’s completely depressing.

  36. John Wayne Lives says:

    Nasty nasty women. All of them.

  37. Missy j says:

    I am so perplexed as to how such a gorgeous gal who genetically defeats the odds could possibly speak like she was raised in a prison! After just ONE embarrassing episode to herself, her fans and her sons, where is her publicist? What does she really want out of life? For herself? For her sons? What good man will want more than one night with a muzzle on her. She’s 40, gorgeous and truly needs a diagnosis, seriously, someone save her unless the joke is on all of us and she truly is playing a part. I went to college with some producer type on RHO fill in the blank and unfortunately it is more REAL than most adult women would hope for another woman! I’m sure the money and perks are nice for some but the price seems too steep and her BOYS will see the show-ask Kim from Atlanta and countless others. Think about your boys and get out and regroup out of LA-find a good attorney to deem it imperative to your family’s health!! Less is much more in the end!! Joyce is not the problem but Brandi, you can be your own solution. Your REAL friends would tell you that out of LOVE!

    Think about this scenario…I go out with my sisters of color all the time and they are always begging me to get on the dance floor but I will not go which prompts them to laugh with each other and say that its because I am a white girl and according to them, “white girls can not dance!” So, do I run screaming to everyone that they are racist? Should I feel as though I am a victim of racism? No, I take my ass out on the floor and drop it like its hot. Which only makes my African American friends laugh harder and state, “see white girls can not dance for sh–!” Guess I am a victim of racism too then, huh?
    The above scenario illustrates the absurdity of claiming racism based on stupid stereotypical comments. Please, please, please people think before you accuse someone of being a racist. Racism is the belief that human value correlates with the color of one’s skin. Racism centers on hatred, ignorance and evil. Think about the Holocaust, slavery, genocide and then compare that to a woman’s comment that black people can not swim or my African American friends comments that white girls can not dance. Stereotypical comments, such as those stated by Brandi and my friends are not racist comments.
