Brandi Glanville is the head bitch on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills now

I don’t really know Brandi Glanville, but I feel like I do since I’ve e-mailed with her a little bit (for this story). I know that doesn’t count for much, but Brandi was very responsive and kind in e-mail, and she was also classy and gracious during the one interview I saw with her, on The Talk. So I’ve never had the impression that she was a bitch or particularly domineering. She fights back against her ex husband’s insane new wife, LeAnn Rimes, but her tactic is usually just to tell the truth and remain as mellow about it as she can manage, which is most of the time. She’s dealt with a lot of crap and has handled it better than I ever could have.

Anyway Brandi is the new castmember on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which is great news for her considering that her ex husband is barely working (although he did get a new gig recently) and has cut down her child support payments while living off his new wife’s millions. According to Radar Online, (which may be getting this straight from the source since they’ve run interviews with Brandi), Brandi is taking Camille Grammer’s place as the villain on the show. This is good for Brandi’s profile I guess, but it bothers me on some level. I don’t see her like that, although I’ll probably come around once the shows air. Producers can certainly edit and twist to portray the characters any way they please. (Look at what a raging bitch Kyle turned out to be.)

Kelsey Grammer’s ex-wife, Camille, is no longer the villain on the hit Bravo show, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, has learned.

Another actor’s ex-wife has taken those reigns – Eddie Cibrian’s first wife, Brandi Glanville – and by all accounts she’s bringing the bitchiness… And some!

During the first season, Camille was seen sparring with Kyle Richards in virtually every episode, as well as butting heads with all the other housewives and generally being a royal pain in the ass!

Not surprisingly, Camille didn’t like the way she was portrayed on the show and has worked hard to repair her image, our source tells us.

“Camille felt that she was made to be the resident villain during the first season and she is determined to not be seen that way again. Camille is getting along very well with Kyle this year, and they have had no arguments at all. Camille has enough drama going on with Kelsey, and she recognizes that she needs her female friends right now,” the insider tells

So… Cue Brandi, who is taking over from where Camille left off last year!

“Brandi is fighting with everyone on the show. Brandi makes Camille look like a saint,” our source reveals. “Bravo executives brought Brandi in to spice things up because they felt there wasn’t enough tension and it was very, very boring to watch. The executives were concerned that without Brandi, the ratings would suffer because there wasn’t enough drama. Well, casting Brandi is paying off, big time. Brandi is all drama, all the time.”

Also bringing some extra, unexpected, tension this season is Taylor Armstrong. As previously reported Taylor has had a complete turnaround after undergoing therapy and has gone from mild-mannered to in-your-face confrontational.

The large lipped lovely has especially been feuding with Adrianne Maloof, and not surprisingly, going head to head with Brandi…

Filming is currently ongoing, and Bravo is expecting to air the second season in October.

[From Radar Online]

Taylor only kisses people’s asses with those giant fish lips of hers when they have something to offer her. I’m not surprised that she’s fighting with Brandi too. I’m bothered, though, by how obviously manipulative the producers were being toward the end of last season. They had Lisa bring up the New York fight with the other women ad nauseum even though she wanted to move past it prior to that. It’s clear they’re telling the women what to say and do, and that’s expected but I’d like it to be more transparent this next season.

I just don’t see Brandi as a bitch but I love that she’s pulling focus on the show, and that this will help her launch a career. She’ll get paid for appearances and she can go on to write books or put out a fashion line or whatever she’d like. I would love to read a tell all from Brandi on the end of her marriage and dealing with LeAnn. She got screwed in the divorce, though, so I wouldn’t be surprised if her divorce agreement includes a provision gagging her from talking about it.

Why do we have to wait until October for this show to come out? That seems like forever doesn’t it?

    I agree Brandi is so not the villain type in “real” life…maybe her honestly and taking no crap from people is being edited to look that way.
    With all the garbage she has to take from Leann & Eddie she probably needed to be tough and stand up for herself.

  2. the original bellaluna says:

    Can they please change the name of the show to “Real Pampered Ex-Wives” or something? Most of the women on these shows (pick a city, any city) are divorced or otherwise un-wed. I think NJ has the only cast who are (almost all) actually WIVES.

    I hope this doesn’t destroy any goodwill BG has amongst viewers. I hope they’re smart enough (or at least read stuff like this article) to know when they’re being manipulated.

  3. Jezi says:

    You’re dead on, Brandi is not a bitch…she just fights back when attacked. I can’t wait to watch and we all know that the producers want certain characters to do certain things. The more drama, the higher ratings and it seems like that’s what their aiming at. Next season, she will be something else. Like how they worked it with Camille. I love Brandi, she’s a remarkable woman who dealt with a lot of BS and didn’t fear sticking up for what was right. She did not sign a confidentiality agreement so hopefully she will write that book. I know she was working on a few things. Good for her, can’t wait to watch.

  4. journey says:

    the way leann single-white-females brandy, leann will probably finagle her way onto the show and become the real biggest b-i-t-c-h of the show, for real, not pretend.

  5. brin says:

    Hi bellaluna & Jezi! I can’t wait to watch this show, too!!

  6. vanessa says:

    I’ve never watched any of the Housewives show, but I might have to check this one out…maybe we’ll hear about some Leann craziness??

  7. your mama says:

    @Bellaluna – so true and so funny. I was at a RH of Egg Harbour Township, NJ episode it felt like on Memorial Day wknd. Those *itches be Cahrazy with a capital C. Always, “me, me, me, me, me and some more me”. No one can get a word in edge-wise. To top it off, all these older ladies who I speak of are watching the RH shows and I think that they think can be just as dramatic, mean, and bitchy! It’s funny now, but at the time I was trying to be a mediator & everyone knows that just doesn’t work w/ women who are too self-obsessed to ever listen to anyone who tries to reason w/ them w/ a cool and sober head.

    I like Brandi, from what I have read, seen & witnessed on Twitter, but I do not personally know her – so we’ll see what happens… editing or not. 😉

  8. clare says:

    I saw two shows last year, and these rich housewives give me the heebie-jeebies. Definitely thought the one with the “medium” Alison Dubois was super good, though. She should be brought back!

  9. Jen34 says:

    I’m getting really burnt out and disinterested in these Housewives shows. It’s all very manipulated. The producers chose people and put them in situations that they know will bring the drama. For example, the NJ show chose to hire Teresa’s SIL after Danielle got fired because they have a bad history. It’s kind of like throwing a bunch of cats into a bag and watching them fight. Very predictable.

  10. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Love that picture of Kyle looking like she’s ready to deliver a one handed choke to Camille! LOL. Also, I thought we’d collectively established that Kyle took Camille’s place as the villain on that show?

    @your mama, they have a RH of Egg Harbour Township, NJ? WTF. I hope they make us south jersey ladies look better than the north jersey housewives.

  11. grazi says:

    I thought that too. I cant stand Kyle. If BG picks a fight with Kyle, she will be my favorite, despite what the producers make her look like.

  12. ol cranky says:

    Didn’t Brandi hire Cedric as a nanny or something? My guess, the Brandi is the head bitch reports are all centered on the Cedric drama, with everyone fighting with Brandi as a show of support for Lisa.

    I saw another report where Taylor is telling people off too. Funny, since she was the prime instigator of at least 90% of the drama in getting Camille all worked up in NY and then all the drama she created for the Richards’ sisters. I still don’t get how Kyle could be so blind to the huge role Taylor played in Kyle’s blow-outs with both Camille and Kim.

  13. Sheri B. says:

    Those shows are just totally fake manufactured drama. They have a new villain every season. It is so phony and yet can be entertaining. I hardly think that Brandi Glanville is a bitch in real life. She has been through the ringer and has behaved in as dignified manner as you could reasonably expect. She is dealing with a scumbag ex an his new wallet, I mean wife, who has absolutely no discretion whatsoever. I wouldn’t blame her if she calls people on their BS and doesn’t put up with it.

  14. Rita says:

    Ohhhhh CB, sometimes I think you are either baiting a thread or are simply naive. Kicking her douche husband into the arms of a washed up and crazy country singer was simply the first phase in Brandi’s plan to eventually take over AJ’s position as queen of Hollywood.

    Yes, Brandi is beautiful, smart and gracious but she can play both sides of the street, having learned how to cut a bitch from the best these past years. Brandi has the x-factor and will dominate RHOBH, then DWTS, and then her remake of Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Jake Gyllenhaal will force AJ into the arms of the head of UNICEF.

    Will I watch RHOBH? I have no choice. My VCR is already set….now if I can only find some tapes.

    (Most of this information is from an “inside source” who has requested anonimity.)

  15. Tiffany says:

    I have a theory. It seems all of us wives on tour are addicted. We joke that they should do a RHOCDS, but I think that people don’t watch soaps anymore. They are mostly cancelled, but I remember the days when all the housewives watched those-remember Luke and Laura?
    Anyway, these have become our new soap operas. Over the top story lines, fights, sexy time, etc.
    They are the new One life to live and General Hospital.

  16. EbonyShiksa says:

    I’m just write what I posted on Twitter yesterday:

    I like how in the Radar article, they basically admit to how scripted it is. “The show was boring, we wanted ‘drama’.” As I’ve always said, Brandi NEVER gave a beat down to LR, which is more than I can say if I were in her situation.

    If that bitch had galloped (#punintended) her smug ass into MY neighbourhood after publicly sucking my husband’s fingers, heads would’ve f-cking rolled and bitches would’ve got cut.

    So…people need to give BG the benefit of the doubt. If anyone deserved her “bitchiness,” it was MeAnn and Princess Edward. And in that regard BG was all class. She has said more positive things about the Terrible Twosome in press and interviews than they EVER have about her.

    The show is just trying to drum up publicity, and can you blame them? BG will be the biggest draw for the new season. Can’t wait 😀

    Ps, Hiiii Rita! 🙂 BG gave you a shout-out on Twitter!

  17. Deb says:

    If not taking crap makes you a bitch, then sign me up. I have never watched any of the HW shows but I’ll watch this one and will be cheering on B all the way. @ Rita witty and sharp as ever
    Waving @Jezi@ebony

  18. Baylor says:

    I’m just worried LeAnn will use this to try to prove her points and that people will believe her. I worry she will be harassed even more by her fans.

  19. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    I don’t get it, is she even anyone’s (house)wife?

  20. brin says:

    @Baylor…Brandi will be getting a paycheck and an audience, she is much better off now. Leann’s five fans are going to believe Leann no matter what.

  21. Rita says:

    OMG!!!! Brandi gave me a twitter shout out. Thanks Ebony. OMG OMG, I wonder if she can get me a cameo in RHOBH!!! (or is it camel…no its cameo)

    Anyway, I want to thank all my fans and a special appreciation goes to Natalie Portman for doing most of the backup dancing. Love love love you all!!!!

    My life is sooooo AMAAAAAZING!!!!!

  22. charity says:

    Brandi is going to take those ratings through the roof. can’t wait. I agree, if Leann had brought her man=sucking fingers into my neighborhood by buying a house down the street, I would have ripped her tonsils out. Check out the web page for a poll on who you can’t wait to see on Playboy. 3 choices and David B had more than twice the votes as EC has. Brandi has 2 of the most beautiful kids I’ve ever seen. Hope EC got vascetomy so we won’t have to see Leann spawn. You go Brandi, girl you will be much bigger star than your ex ever was or will be

  23. J O'C says:

    Just one more way for crazy, obsessed LeAnn to stalk Brandi. Can’t you just picture it? She’ll be all huddled down in front of the tv for every episode, rocking back and forth, drooling and crying, screaming at her assistants who will be frantically writing down every outfit Brandi wears so that LeAnn can copy her….


  24. charity says:

    forgot to give shout out to rita, Jezi, deb and other buds who by the way, always post under our real names, unlike Leann who has 15 different names on here

  25. Jezi says:

    @Deb hey girl…@brin hi & hahaha you’re so right about LR’s fans.

  26. Madisyn says:

    Mornin Ladies (the tin can crew)

    I never saw any of the RH series until the BH edition. Loved it, completely hooked. The only reason I even watched this edition is because I knew who the Richard’s sisters were because of Parasite, the name Grammer because of Kelsey, and I knew the Maloof name because of the Palms Casino/Sac Kings basketball team, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. Talk about “Must See TV”.

    Anywho, can’t wait for Season 2. You just know Brandi is going to take small jabs at LeAnn here and there and its going to drive her bonkers, big time. I can already see LeAnn and Eddie sitting down on the couch, LeAnn seething, Eddie mildly amused. After the first crack about LeAnn, she’ll run so fast to her twitter account, it would make Carl Lewis in his hey day jealous. You know whats really going to tweak LeAnn, the fact that Brandi has a NATIONAL audience and Leann has her little twitter account. Its going to be an epic gossip season come October.

  27. icantbelievethis says:

    I’m not sure why anyone would want to be portrayed as ‘the bitch’ of the show, but as long as she’s getting paid good for her. I’ve always said she doesn’t need protecting, she seems like the type who can stand up for herself just fine. Didn’t she slash tires or something after the affair came out?

    However I do not understand this:
    ‘BrandiGlanville Brandi Glanville
    I also love a cute African american guy who is NEVER here and thinks we can always pick up where we left off, and a young gent from Texas!’

    First I don’t understand the need to put your business on FB, Twitter, etc and secondly why do you need to put ‘African American’? I hate when people say “my gay friend, my African American friend”.

  28. Rita says:

    @JO’c #23
    The imagery you paint is hysterical!

    *waves to Charity, Jezi, brin, Deb,….finger to LR*

  29. Madisyn says:

    @ Tiffany,

    “I have a theory. It seems all of us wives on tour are addicted. We joke that they should do a RHOCDS”.


  30. brin says:

    @Jezi…I’m not sure, maybe it’s down to four fans!
    @Madisyn…Hi! ITA, this will be must see tv!
    Happy Friday, Rita!

  31. mzjask says:

    haha, rita you’re a riot. thanks for the friday laughs 😉

    never watched the show [no cable] 🙁 but if they’re posted online, im watchin this ish solely for BG! I bet LR’s just stewing in her own gross juices over this. i even bet her and EC have squabbled over all the attention BG is gonna get!!!
    i cant wait til october tho!!!
    keep us posted, CB!! 🙂

  32. Jezi says:

    @brin…I think you’re right about the diminshing number. Only a few that would slit all our throats since we dare speak ill of their idol. I’m sure they are busy with their LR shrines & praying that Leann tweets them again to make their day.

    @Madisyn OMG toooooo hysterical.

    @icantbelievethis…it’s a TV show, created solely for our entertainment. I’m sure she nor any of the other cast members don’t get all excited to be the “bitch” but heck for Brandi it’s a well deserved pay check. I think she was mentioning “African American” so that the dude knows just who he is. But honestly who cares.

    @Rita…hahahahaha…giving LR the finger. Hahahaha!

  33. fannomore says:

    I just want to see one of them, just one of them do the dishes and then the laundry and clean out a toilet or two…pleaseeeeeeeeeee

  34. betty says:

    @fannomore It’s a lot of housewives that don’t do dishes,do laundry or clean toilets some can afford a cleaning service or maid and you don’t have to be rich to afford this.

  35. Madisyn says:

    Waving @ Jezi

    They may be “crazy, delusional, skanks” but would we have it any other way? Who would want to see them do dishes, clean toilets, not me, I do that myself weekly. I want to see off the wall antics. Good times!

  36. Franny says:

    I can’t wait for this season! I had never watched any of the RH shows, but after BH, I quickly watched all 5 seasons of NYC and now I’m watching Orange County. These ladies!

    so its shallow…its fun and interesting too!

  37. skilo says:

    The key here is “Bravo executives brought Brandi in to spice things up because they felt there wasn’t enough tension and it was very, very boring to watch. The executives were concerned that without Brandi, the ratings would suffer because there wasn’t enough drama. Well, casting Brandi is paying off, big time. Brandi is all drama, all the time.”

    Brandi is going to play the bitch role this time because Camille didn’t want to anymore. People forget that just because this is “reality tv” doesn’t mean it is actually real it’s very manipulated. It’s not like it’s live feed 24/7, it’s heavily edited.
    I don’t care if Brandi plays the bitch role, if that’s what they are paying her for I say bring it!

  38. skilo says:

    I gotta say I wish Taylor wasn’t being brought back I can’t stand her. I hope Brandi makes her look like the fake, stupid looking lipped, social climbing witch she is.
    Does anybody else think Brandi looks a bit like Sheryl Crow in that pic of her?

  39. helicopterpilot says:

    I’ve always said BG is a cunt. Wonder if Bravo wants her to discuss her vaginal rejuvenation surgery on the show? I bet she would get paid extra. Raise your glass of wine ladies.

  40. Thea says:

    I think they need to bring Leann Rimes on and really mix it up. I would even watch it. I can see Leann hiding in a closet tweeting every 2 seconds. Then pop out of the closet in a bikini.

  41. Kim says:

    She knows to stay on the show and get attention she has to be the villian. The villians on these cheesy reality shows always get the most press. She isnt dumb and knows what she is doing. This whole entourage of Real Housewives wshows has become so fake. All the fights are so scripted and fake. Its like watching a bad soap opera where no one will win an Emmy.

  42. betty says:

    @helicopter pilot You jealous? I bet Leann needs one because she started at age 15 and never had kids so you can just imagine. Leann would not fit in on the RHOBH show the ladies might be bitchy but Leann is more of the Jerry Springer type. LOL

  43. Jezi says:

    @helicopterpilot either gphines or amejean on twitter…you all have so many issues discussing this woman’s vagina. Weird, just weird. Where Did that info come from? Perhaps your idol is feeding you crap. Actually keep going cause you make yourselves look even more foolish and make LeAnn look even worse.

  44. Messenger Of Truth says:

    A Brandi thread! Can I say Brandi’s name HERE without shewhoshallnotbenamed getting on my case? Brandi. Brandi. Brandi. (There, I feel better now.)

    1) “Brandi’s not a bitch.”
    2) “If Brandi is a bitch, she has every right to be.”
    3) “Brandi’s not a bitch, she’ll just be playing one on TV.”

    All the bases are covered & the show hasn’t even aired yet!

    Anyway, I wish Brandi success.

  45. why? says:

    Oh no is someone upset because Brandi is getting attention that they think Leann deserves, you know because according to this person Leann has talent because her Crazy Women Single made it all the way to the top 40 on the Country Billboard list for one week?

  46. Messenger Of Truth says:

    Good God. Were you waiting for me to comment or what?

    Let’s put the past behind us and not comment to or about each other anymore, ok?

  47. RHONYC says:

    Kyle & Camille make me sad for older gals clinging to their youth. 🙁

  48. why? says:

    LR must be gearing up to release a pda beach or “happy family” beach/art museum staged photo-op with EC and his kids in 3, 2, 1.

  49. Maddox says:

    I’ve never been devoted to Housewives, but I’ll definitely be watching the new season. I’m curious to see how she puts herself out there.

  50. HappyGal says:

    Could any of you BG fans on here tell me when RHOBH is going to be airing? Thanks!

  51. Jezi says:

    @HappyGal I believe its airing in October.

  52. charity says:

    absolutely thrilled Brandi is going to be on this show. she will be a bigger star than leann or Eddie. All the friends of hers from twitter wish her only the best. Leann will be biting her nails and biting Eddie nails too, because Leann has to be the center of attention. Just waiting for her nuclear melt=down. or, when she finds bunny fur in Eddies toothbrush and he tells her its just extra floss from over flossing. She will believe him because she has to, that can happen to anyone, over flossing

  53. OfficialBitch says:

    I like Brandi…but I don’t think being a Housewife will do anything good for her. In fact…the franchise is dying and becoming more stupid every season. Rating s are down, and ridiculousness is up. Its become so “campy.” I’ll tune in bc Taylor’s lips are comedy, but Brandi….
    I like Brandi but she has had too much done to her face. Her cheeks = fillers. Multiple nose jobs…
    She must get along with Adrienne Maloof – in that manner.

  54. charity says:

    official bitch, an appropriate name for you. You need to take a look at a picture of Brandi’s 2 sons. they have beautiful full lips,gorgeous cheek bone structure and the same nose that she has. so, unless those kids have had those surgeries, they get that from her natural beauty. she has admitted to having some breast surgery after her last baby. You need to check your facts before you comment. by the by==Leann has had some eyelid surgery, horse veneers added, lipo suction–scar on inner leg from it,nose done, and 2 bolt-ons added to the side of her bony body.

  55. Jezi says:

    @OfficialBitch actually Charity is right Brandi is part American Indian and those are where her high cheekbones come from. As far as the Real Housewives franchise, the ratings are actually higher this season. I do believe the RHOBH was nominated for a Critics Choice award from last season. So I’m not sure where you are getting your information from but it is incorrect.

  56. jackie says:

    i never laughed so hard reading some of these posts! Braqndi’s beauty is like a work of art, her features are exquisite! Can’t wait for season 2.

  57. betty says:

    OfficialBitch Stop Being a hypocrite since when do you bash someone you like. If Brandi has had work done on her face she sure looks good. Leann need to look up Brandi doctor.Leann is still looking like the before and wish she could look as good as Brandi. Brandi will get national recognition when the season premiers and you appear resentful.This is what Maya Angelou meant by “Still I Rise” to overcome adversity despite setbacks,humiliation, betrayal and rise above it all.This makes Brandi a “Phenomenal Woman!!!!!

  58. Mairead says:

    Who knew that getting divorced by some squinty no-name would be such a good career move. :rolleyes:

  59. why? says:

    It looks like someone is highly upset that BG is getting all of the attention. Woe is Leann Rimes, CB is supposed to be writing about LR and how she is bringing in the ratings for Drop Dead Diva(even though she had to create a sex scandal and exploit EC kids to do it).

    So someone thinks that they can fix it by writing nasty comments about BG under different names?

    LR has given yet another interview about her “blissful life” and how EC “supports” her acting career. And when it all backfires, LR then wants to tell people to mind their own business or don’t judge her.

    No wonder she was using STAR mag to smear both BG and DS, she was gearing up for the release of this interview. Which isn’t getting a favorable reaction from the public because once again people are tired of her airing her business and then whining when she doesn’t get patted on the back for being such a great person.

  60. Jan S. says:

    Love Brandy…she did not have to apolgize for anything she was dissed and treated like crap from Kyle who is just upset because she’s not the prettiest anymore…not that any of us thought she was to begin with! kick butt and take names Brandy…anyone who treats another person the way you have been treated gets not a ounce of sympathy from me.Kyle is a bitch…doing her own sister like that with the house of their mom’s…but Kim needs to be mad at her and tell her off not everyone else..and I agree something is up with her behavior wheather she’s alcoholic,drugie or whatever she is not acting normal. Adrian is the only other I like.. that Lisa is a bag of TRASH TOO. Instagtor she is.

  61. Helpful info. Fortunate me I discovered your site unintentionally, and I’m shocked why this twist of fate did not took place earlier! I bookmarked it.

  62. Thanks a lot for the post.Really looking forward to read more. Amazing.
