RHOBH: Cedric admits he’s not old friends with Brandi; says plot with Lisa was faked

Star has a new interview with Cedric, Lisa’s houseguest on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills who was kicked out of her house last season and caused a lot of drama. It’s a given that this guy lies and is not to be trusted, but he does reveal a few things that ring true to me. He claims that he was never old friends with Brandi, as she claimed earlier this year, and that producers told him to say that so that he could remain on the show. He also says that he had moved out of Lisa’s house “months before” she had a role on the show and that he was told to move back in. Plus, he claims he was invited to the party at Lisa’s that will be shown on the finale, also in order to create drama.

False: Cedric wasn’t invited to the party on the finale.
Producers did invite Cedric Martinez to the grand-opening party at Sur Restaurant & Bar that will appear on the season finale. But according to Cedric, after filming his arrival, “Lisa confronted me with some of the worst acting you’ll ever see on television. She claimed I wasn’t invited and told me to leave. It sums up all the phoniness and manufactured drama on the show.”

False: Kim only struggles with alcohol addition.
That’s the least of Kim Richards’ problems, says Cedric. “The truth is much darker,” he says. “I’m thankful Kim is now in rehab, hopefully getting some professional help.”

False: Cedric and Brandi were longtime pals.
Cedric and new cast member Brandi Glanville met this year at a lunch organized by producers, not during their modeling days in Europe a decade ago. “It was a manufactured friendship to keep me on the show,” Cedric tells Star.

False: Lisa and Ken have a solid marriage.
Despite their united front on the show… Lisa is “mortified and embarrassed” by her husband, Ken. “Over the past few years, I witnessed a marriage in crisis,” says Cedric. “I’m betting Lisa will dump poor old Ken as soon as RHOBH completes its run!”

False: Lisa likes Adrienne.
Lisa hates neighbor and costar Adrienne Maloof-Nassif, says Cedric. “She feels Adrienne is not worthy of being on the show.”

False: Cedric was living with Lisa when the series started.
“I moved out months before she landed the role,” he says. Producers convinced him to move back in, the former housemate said.

So is Cedric just revising history so he sounds like the wronged party? I wouldn’t be surprised. He’s a con artist and it was obvious that he made up that whole Les Miserables backstory. (Although he denies this and said that producers deliberately tried to discredit him.) He’s shown that he’s lazy, petty and a freeloader, although it’s hard to figure out what’s exaggerated by editing for effect.

I bet some of this is true, and that producers told him to come to the party so that they could film him arguing with Lisa. It’s even possible that producers asked him to move back into Lisa’s house for season one so that they could film him getting kicked out again. He doesn’t elaborate there, though, and it would be easy enough for him to just make these claims. I do believe that he got into a legitimate beef with Lisa and Ken and that he scammed and hurt Ken especially. Ken isn’t that good of an actor. Lisa is, though. That lady is a piece of work, like just about everyone else on the show.

In related RHOBH news, Kim Richards was said to be out of rehab, but various outlets changed that story and Radar claims in an update that she’s still there. I bet she wanted to bolt and producers made her stay. Kim was so visibly wasted on that show and only Brandi and Adrienne’s husband seemed to even notice.

    Reality shows are a complete lie. Do people even believe in them anymore??

  2. Eileen says:

    People really get into the stories and take it seriously which is scary. lol Before they even begin filming they have to submit a “plan” then let the drama unfold.

  3. Sarah says:

    But Brandi’s so REAL right? Isn’t that what all her rabid fans say over and over again? They love her so much because she’s REAL.

    Hm, not so much.

  4. NancyMan says:

    The reality of my life is exciting and scary enough. I don’t understand why people get so invested in this manufactured reality.

    • valleymiss says:

      It’s because whether RHOBH is fake or real drama (and I’m quite sure much of it is fake), the draw is these lives are being lived with lots and lots of $! That makes it interesting, cuz how many of us 99% can’t relate to the 1%? It’s like an anthropological study in seeing how the other half…err…the other 1% live. They have the same problems we do: narcissism, susbstance abuse, jealousy, betrayal, divorces, suicides…but they they’re doing it with a ton of $.

  5. Jayna says:

    Brandi is a liar. No one on that show is 100 percent real. I still love the housewife shows. I just don’t fall for total reality. There’s enough reality in them to keep me coming back.

  6. Jessica says:

    He said both of these..so which is real?

    Cedric and new cast member Brandi Glanville met this year at a lunch organized by producers

    “Over the past few years, I witnessed a marriage in crisis,” says Cedric.


    • Franny says:

      I’m confused. The marriage in crisis comment is about Lisa and Ken, not Brandi and Eddie. I don’t know what one has to do with the other.

    • Mali says:

      Very very simple if you follow logic. Cedric knew, and worked for, Lisa for a few years and stopped working for Lisa before Brandi came on the show, hence him being familiar with Lisa and Ken’s marriage.

      He met Brandi this year.

      What can’t you understand about that?

  7. risa says:

    They did model together in the day. Cedric wanted to be interviewed by Star & Star wanted a story. Much like the false plastic surgery story. According to Star Anniston is still pregnant. Gestation period of 2 yrs. Finally for those dissing people who watch/ believe reality tv. Get over yourself. You’re on a gossip site & commenting on the story.

  8. Jennifer12 says:

    Brandi accepted a part on a show and hasn’t been fired. It’s a job. No one believes in *any* of these stupid reality shows (I hope).

  9. Jezi says:

    Who cares what this man says. He’s a known liar and just wants attention. Brandi has said she got on the show because of Adrienne Maloof. That had nothing to do with Cedric.

  10. Rita says:

    I really like this Brandi girl. Wasn’t there a story going around about her husband cheating on her?

  11. Coucou says:

    Lisa looks gorge in that black suit.

  12. DesertRose says:

    Brandi, Lisa, and Adrienne seem to be the most ‘normal’ ones out of the bunch. That being said, besides the setting, I don’t think much of the show is real, but I love it. I’m prone to believing a few things Cedric says. About the fake friendship with Brandi? Sure. About moving back into Lisa’s house to film the first season? Yep. About Kim having problems much worse than alcohol? For sure. The one I’m having trouble with is about Ken and Lisa’a marriage being in trouble. I see where it could be true – she has said herself he’s ready to retire and she’s still pushing on – but other than that, they seem truly happy. And sly jokes about no sex make me think that they have a good sex life. I dunno, just like Adrienne & Paul, I think Ken & Lisa are great couples.

    I’m sure Leann and Eddie are having a good laugh out of this.

    • dede says:

      well considering the fact that Eddie is an unemployed serial cheater and stalker leanns album tanked and they are listed as the 2nd most annoying celbrity couple, and the public cant stand them, id say Brandi is the one laughing

      • Nan says:

        Who is the #1 annoying couple? Because EC and LR are my #1. I didn’t even know who EC was until all of a sudden people were talking about LR cheating on her husband and then the two of them were all over the place and LR was tweeting pics of her bikini bottoms.

        FYI – There are two Nans on here apparently.

      • dede says:

        that 17 year old bride Courtney and her 51 year old hubby..gross lol

    • KC says:

      LeAnn has GOT to be dying. She ended up with a douche and a FAILED album and brandi is now one of the most popular housewives on RHOBH; KARMA is a bitch.

      I think that this story WILL NOT DIE because we get an inside look at the cray-cray going on in Hollywood.You know JA and all other celebrities (ok maybe not ALL but many) obsess and stalk others’ social networking sites, etc…

      Difference is, Leann is so stupid, she just does it in front of our eyes. Beyonce and all them hide it real well, so us “norms” can’t get a good look.

  14. jasperkitty says:

    Unbelievable! The story has nothing to do with LR, but some how…the rude comments and name calling keep coming. Hmmm, seems so hypocritical don’t ya think? Why is it what you are doing any better than those you complained about in other posts?

  15. BerMan says:

    Reality Blogs are MORE fun!!
    Smoke ’em If you got ’em !

  16. JaneWonderfalls says:

    Wow! A reality show being fake and staged, that’s a new concept…

  17. Magsy says:

    Kim is definitely on scripted meds too, you can tell. Somehow Lisa thinks she’s the matriarch of the group. Brandi wants Camille. They say Kyle’s marriage is in trouble. Just get rid of Taylor and I’ll be happy.
