Brandi Glanville in an LBD at a RHOBH boutique party: lovely or busted?

These are some photos from last night’s “pre-opening party for Kyle Richards’ new Beverly Hills Boutique”. I didn’t know Kyle was a boutique owner, nor did I know that boutiques get “pre-opening parties” – wouldn’t it just be an opening party? I guess the boutique isn’t ready, but they just decided to throw a party anyway. As you can see, Brandi Glanville was in attendance. She’s really the only one I have any interest in, so she gets to be the headliner of this little photo set. I think Brandi looks pretty good here – I would style her differently, but she’s an attractive woman with a nice figure. I would fluff up her hair, maybe cut off a few inches and go a couple of shades darker with the “honey/caramel” tones. In any case, I expect to see LeAnn Rimes in this whole outfit in just a few weeks. Count on it! As for any Brandi news – she was tweeting about going on a second date with a dude a few days ago, but a day later she tweeted, “No new hot man I swear, just single and dating and very happy and busy.” She sounds like she doing well.

My mom really likes Kyle and although I don’t watch RHOBH, my general impression of Kyle is that she’s a grown-up Mean Girl. Tell me I’m wrong, I don’t mind.

I’ve been looking through the Camille Grammer photos trying to figure out if she actually chopped off her hair or if it’s just pulled back. I think it’s just pulled back. But she should seriously try a shorter, choppier look – it kind of suits her.

More photos… is it just me or do all of these ladies have ridiculous Botox-faces?

    You are right. Kyle is a mean-girl and a bully. Terrible woman.
    When I see Brandi I have to think about Leann Rimes and how she uses Brandi’s boys for publicity and I always feel bad for her that her her husband cheated on her and now she has to put up with pathetic Leann.

    • anonimouse8319 says:

      …brandi laughs all the way to the bank..without EC cheating on her…she would just be an ex-housewife…

  2. Lana__ says:

    Hot!

  3. Nebraskalinda says:

    Kim Richards is looking healthier–not so scary-skinny.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      I think she’s still on the sauce. She’s looking flushed here. She’s also had some bad plastic surgery. Her eye slways looks wonky (and she didn’t seem to have that problem when she was younger).

  4. bubbles says:

    she has a case of old-lady face.

  5. maluf-huf says:

    Queen Lisa and Princess Camille are my fav. If Cinderella was alcoholic hasbeen she’d have mean never was sister like Kyle. Totally.

  6. Gigi says:

    I hate Kyle with her man jaw. She is a mean girl through and through. She loves the feeling of being needed, probably makes her feel important, it’s how she felt with her sister and now it’s Taylor. So pretentious.

    • JudyK says:

      Amen re Kyle!

      Camille looks beautiful…love her new haircut. “Taylor” appears to have removed her lip implants.

      Don’t know whether I can watch the show if Taylor remains part of the cast.

    • Az says:

      Kyle and Paris Hilton look exactly alike. What throws you off is Kyle’s coloring (and she doesn’t have a wonk eye). But look at pictures of them side-by-side… identical!

      • lilac says:

        I think you mean KIM and Paris. They look almost identical, Kim being an older version.

  7. MrsBpitt says:

    Brandi looks really good…but even on her worst day, she looks 5,000 times better than LR…but then, who doesn’t?

    • beclove says:

      Yep.

    • LahdidahBaby says:

      I like Brandi. Did she get some new and larger bolt-ons? I always admired how she (admittedly) had very small implants before. She has a killer bod, and I hate to see her go the way of these other RHOBH hags. Unless she’s wearing a major push-up bra here, she seems to have enlarged her boobs further–big mistake, if so.

  8. elaine says:

    Brandi is a beautiful woman. she is also a very strong person to have put up with a total nut case who delighted in taunting her constantly about being with Brandis ex and being A BONUS mom to Brandis babies.You go Brandi, love and respect you

    • brin says:

      I agree. I’m so happy to see that Brandi is enjoying her life and doing really well. She got rid of a loser husband and gained a new life. Cheers, Brandi!

    • Jennifer says:

      So true-Brandi is one strong and beautiful woman. No matter how much Leann tries to copy her, Brandi is the one and only original.

  9. Jennifer12 says:

    Brandi doesn’t look busted, but I would so love to style her. For one thing, no more plunging necklines. The length of her dress is great, but a tight dress needs some mystery to it; I’d have more covered up with maybe a draped neckline or simple scoopneck. She has the figure to carry it off. Ease up on the plastic surgery, not so heavy eyebrows, and cut a few inches off the hair and make it darker. Just my opinion, though- she doesn’t look busted, but I think that she has to make her style a little more adult. As for the other housewives: holy crap. It’s like a Botox assembly line. If Camille cut her hair, it suits her and makes her look better than she has in ages. Morgan Fairchild hair does not look good after a certain point.

    • Cam S says:

      Girl I think Brandi should gain some lb’s, dye her hair red (ah la Cristina Hendricks). She’d be stunning as a redhead with the right shade of red. It’d really make her stand, the world needs another Jessica Rabbit!

      I wish she’d try to be a little more mature. You can be fun loving and a lil wild without being so darn immature.
      Sorry, sometimes I can’t get behind some of the hair brained crap she says. I root for her, follow her on twitter even, but sometimes it seems she isn’t the sharpest crayon in the box.

      • Rita says:

        I never thought of Brandi as a “red” but I think you’re absolutely right. She’d look great with a subtle red. She would, she would!!!

      • Jennifer12 says:

        No, I think she’s a bit old for red. I’d say a warm brown with honey or red highlights, and more of a sleek look. Definitely gain about ten pounds and less lowcut clothing. She’d be great as a sexy business woman, but she needs to embrace the natural aging and work with the great stuff she’s got. I don’t watch TV and I only peek at Twitter when I see a link, but she seems like a fun, sweet person. I doubt she’s a brain surgeon, but she doesn’t claim to be, so I’m cool with that. The calm way she handles her evil ex and his psycho replacement bot put me on her side.

    • sapphire says:

      Ita- I like the woman, but shorter and darker on the hair. The brows should be curved, not wings. Dial down the fillers and bring out the dark eyes. She’s got personality, no need to look like a BH assembly line blonde.

    • deehunny says:

      ITA about the plunging necklines. Her dress looks cheap. (I’m 27 btw). Reminds me of something my Grandmother wanted me to get at TJ Max– cute, tight fit but looks cheap. Found another black dress much more expensive looking at Lohmann’s lol.

  10. Jennifer12 says:

    Okay, and I also would change Brandi’s shoes.

  11. Blannie says:

    Ugh on Brandi’s dress. All of that ruching reminds me of the inside of caskets. Blechhh.

    Kyle Richards always dresses like it’s still the 80s and Camille is always sticking her chest out.

    I love Lisa Vanderpump and her hubby is looking particularly hot in the pic above – like Roger Daltrey’s brother!

    • claire says:

      Can’t stand Kyle. She’s a nasty bully, but she is an attractive woman. I just don’t get why she always dresses in what amounts to floral caftans. It IS so 80s – does she think she’s a character from Dynasty?? She’s got a good figure, but definitely needs a new stylist. And cut the darn hair.

      • deehunny says:

        I actually like her dress— would be really pretty and expensive looking on a 30-something. Instead, the plunging neckline and bare shoulder makes her look older than she likely is.

      • GoGoGrammy says:

        Kyle is definitely the “mean girl” and usually the first one to stir the pot on the show…to keep her nose right in the middle of all the conflict. She needs to cut her hair…she’s no longer a high school student. She dresses like she’s stuck in the 80′s. Husband will dump her in time…then you’ll really see the mean girl come out! Sister looks plastered in that group shot. Did get a kick out of Kyle on that segment where she listed her top 10 favorite things. Pantene shampoo. Really…? What a shallow life she lives.

  12. the original bellaluna says:

    She doesn’t look busted, but I HATE that dress style – it reminds me of the 80′s dresses and bathing suits, with all that ruching.

    Countdown to ME!Ann “sharing” a pic of her in the same dress in 3…2…1…

    And yes, all the RHW look like crazy botox monsters. One of the funniest things I ever saw was that clip or preview with all of them trying to cry. NONE of them could move their faces – HYSTERICAL!

    • Aussie girl says:

      The dress doesnt do it for me, the fit & those straps. But she has the best body ever. Its the reason why Leanne starves & workouts

    • Aussie girl says:

      The dress doesnt do it for me, the fit & those straps. But she has the best body ever. Its the reason why Leanne starves herself & works out. Oh & when I got to the picture of all the ladies they did look like crazy Botox monster.

  13. bagladey says:

    Brandi’s dress is just alright, it’s a little too long imo but Ken is the star in those pix, he looks better than Mauricio and all the women; his clothes and the way they fit get an A+ from me.

  14. mayamae says:

    I love Camille Grammars dress but Kyle’s is awful. Her boobs are just hanging there sagging.

    • deehunny says:

      yea, def. Ages her

    • bej says:

      Her,(Kyle’s)boobs look awful. If you look closely you can see the wrinkling caused by tape on the side. I don’t understand how she can be opening a fashion boutique when her personal style is so dated and gaudy. She just looks desperate to me. Desperate to hang onto her fading youth & appear to be a ‘somebody’. Unfortunately the best she’s achieving is to remind us that the 80′s were probably her ‘heyday’ and that too much botox is a hideous thing.

  15. Marisa says:

    Love the dress & her. So happy she is doing so well. She’s a very strong woman.

  16. Sean says:

    Work it girl. Gorgeous mamacita

  17. KJ says:

    She looks cheap as usual. All the housewives do.

    I really don’t get this sites obsession/connection with this attention starved greyhound of a woman. Is she like a friend of one of the writers or something? If she were anyone else, her outfits and antics would be torn to shreds in the comment section. I see right through her bullshit. She’s no different that any of the women she’s standing next to, that’s why she’s on the show. Nothing but faux-wealthy, bitter old harpies who hung all their hopes and dreams on snagging a rich man, and are now trying to convince the audience with their alimony checks and failed ambitions that their lives are “aspirational.”

    • Sean says:

      Shut up LR. How many times are you going to comment under fake names. Leave my girl alone skank. Go babysit Ediot .

      • KJ says:

        Yes because in order to see that Brandy is gross, I have to be a fan of LeAnn Rimes or be her. Quite some logic you’ve got going there.

        They’re both gross, attention hungry scarecrows. LeAnn just happens to have a couple of more strikes against her.

      • HannahF says:

        Sometimes on this site when people comment it is so obvious the poster is from a specific camp. This happens when the claims made by CB are basically irrefutable. For example, the COS people who threw out the Catholic Church/COS comparison did so in a manner that was straight out of the COS handbook. One also wonders about commenter INNOCENT who claims that Lindsay, who pleaded guilty to DUI, is not a danger to others. However, most of the time merely liking or disliking an actor or a participant on a tv show means nothing more than the poster has an opinion. Is the poster who said Ken looks better than Mauricio actually Kim Richards slamming her sister?

      • nomorerimes says:

        Sorry,Sean but have to disagree with you in accusing KJ of being LR. KJ’s post is much more intelligent than LR’s or LR’s friends would ever be. They just use simple one line put downs and use teeny-bopper language–look at Bubbles post and you will see what I mean! Nothing like KJ’s posting at all. And while I totally disagree with her–she at least shows some sign of a working brain as opposed to LR and her paid-for friends.

    • melangie says:

      Whoa KJ- it’s a gossip site. So we’re gossiping about her. See, that’s the connection

      • KJ says:

        She’s irrelevant though. Her “gossip” is neither salacious nor important in the larger scheme of the underpinings of Hollywood, which is why I questioned her connection to this site. She’s given CB a couple of “exclusives” and I’m asking why, if there’s really nothing to talk about concerning BG, is she on here pretty regularly? Who’s she buddies with?

        Not all gossip is good gossip. BG to me does not bring good gossip.

    • Joanna says:

      I agree 1000%. stupid hw shows. bunch of superficial drama queens.

    • MerryHappy says:

      THANK YOU.
      They look absolutely garish. The pictures of them are revolting. They’re all fake tanned, botoxed, injected, tweaked, with implants, extensions, and over processed hair. They look terrible. I wouldn’t constantly say Kim Kardashian looks like one of them if i didn’t think they looked so… Fake. I sound so mean but i don’t find any of them attractive. Kate Blanchett is beautiful. Helen Mirren is beautiful. Meryl Streep is beautiful. Halle “crazypants” Berry is beautiful. And they’re, as far as i know untouched in such obvious ways–even if they’ve had work done, it has never looked like… this. These women make me depressed with our culture of what i feel is shaming women into not accepting aging. I don’t find any of them attractive, only sad.

      • Happymom says:

        I completely agree with you. And in terms of gossip-they’re not actual “stars” either-they’re only famous (and I use that term loosely) for being on a silly, scripted “reality” show.

      • deehunny says:

        In some of my prior posts I was talking about how what they wear and those plunging necklines age their look even though they are desperately trying to cling to their youthful look.

        Never considered the fake-tans in the mix. That probably makes them look older more than anything else.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        I’ve always wondered about this. I don’t hate Brandi by any means but I’ve NEVER understood this site’s obsession with her, especially a site that hates on someone like Kate Bosworth with such passion. I’m not a fan of K-Bos but at least she’s an actress. Why is this site so obsessed with only one reality TV star– Brandi?
        And I HATE when any “dissenter” is labeled as LR or part of LR’s camp just because he/she doesn’t kiss Brandi’s ass like the rest of y’all.

      • MerryHappy says:

        @happymom
        They’re not stars to me, either–i haven’t ever watched their shows. If Kathy Griffith is d list they must be ‘unlisted.’
        @deehunny
        Yeah, the fake tans do no favors, in my honest opinion. You’re right about the necklines. It doesn’t look young, it looks sad. I actually feel depressed looking at them try so hard, it’s really uncomfortable….
        @theoriginalkitten
        I know, I’m definitely not team lr. I could care less about her. But I’m not some Brandi-head by default because of that. People act like she’s the best thing since the wheel sometimes on this site, which isn’t true. Sure, she’s probably okay and everything, but her propaganda machine is WAY beyond what a ‘celebrity’ if her caliber needs.

    • Roma says:

      @KG: I think it’s because with the BG and LR stories they get tons of hits and comments. I get accused of being LeAnn occasionally but I’m used to it now.
      I just find some commentators obsessed with stalking LeAnn (omg she is wearing a leather jacket and Brandi has a leather jacket) and it only makes LeAnn feel like people pay attention. The commentators keep both of them in the news.

  18. beclove says:

    Ken is so adorable- and I really like Lisa’s dress.
    Team BG.

  19. heb says:

    Yeah, the hair is off but dress looks good.

    I think the Kyle as a grown up mean girl is right on.

    too much boobage vanderhuff!

  20. Enn says:

    Every one of them needs to cut off at least 4 inches of hair. Ugh, so processed looking and gross.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Yes, I agree. If Camille’s hair is short and choppy, it looks good on her. She looks the best out of all of them except those horrendous shoes. Brandi has the most to work with, features-wise, but she needs to cut and darken her hair and make her look more sexy librarian. I’m not sayingafter 35 you need high waisted pants and a mom hairdo, but there’s a way to do it that looks sexy and mature and not try-hard. I say the same with Britney Spears, whose natural prettiness is ruined by the long, bleach blong hair and bandage dresses. You can look sexy and attractive without trying to look like you’re trying to cling to your 20s.

  21. Jackie O says:

    i have never watched these shows, but for women who i assume spend lots of time and money on their looks, they all kinda look like hell.

  22. nomorerimes says:

    @KJ–Brandi is occasionally on this site because she is appearing on a TV show!–Duh! She is not irrelevant as she is working to support her two sons. She has had her life shredded because of the adultery of her now ex and his irrelevant little country singer hasbeen. She had a rough go of it but has come through it and is doing well. And in my opinion she came out the winner in the whole situation getting rid of not only EC but Lizzie and her whatever too. She will find someone much better than EC and we will be happy for her!
    I don’t like the show because I really don’t like reality shows–but if she is happy doing it–I say go girl! But let’s quit with the Brandi-bashing. She isn’t on this site or anyother site near as much as LR is. She is the one that ANY publicity is better than no publicity! So the few articles on Brandi are welcome!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah of course she’s on a reality TV show. You get that there are TONS of reality TV shows & reality TV show “stars” right? KJ’s question was why the focus on Brandi and not the hundreds of other reality TV show “stars”.I guess because BG posts get a ton of hits because her fan base is so huge because everyone hates LR . So really, BG should be THANKING Leanne Rhimes for sucking so bad/being so easy to dislike, thus making so many people like Brandi.

  23. surlymonkey says:

    I think Brandi looks good here. Her makeup looks soft and really pretty. Not my favorite style of dress, but with her figure, she can wear just about anything well.

    Camille looks great. I love this look for her. She usually photographs too harsh and “over-worked” for me. She seems much happier now and maybe that is what shows in her recent pics.

    I want to hate Lisa’s dress, but I just love her, so she gets a pass.

    As for the Richard sisters and trying for the fake facelift with super high ponies on their crypt keeper faces – I just can’t…

  24. bgirl says:

    Brandi’s dress looks like she got it at Deb shop in the mall, on clearance. And too much Botox. She could gain 5 lbs and looks a lot better. Yes, Kyle is Mean, awful. Camille looks amazing. Too bad they fired her from the show. Bad move.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I think BG is quite pretty but the dress is trashy. Sorry. She’s in great shape-she could wear something better/more flattering.

  25. surfing2day says:

    I guess I’m the only one that thinks the camera would love Brandi as a blonde.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      No, no, no!! People are too into the blonde look and it doesn’t photograph well (Tori Spelling, Britney Spears, Nicole Kidman, etc). It washes you out, especially if you’re not in your 20s. I’m telling you, auburn or warm brunette with well placed highlights.

  26. Jill says:

    Well she looks better than Leann Rimes.

  27. Rita says:

    My reply to Cam S seems to have been lost so I’ll say it again. I totally agree that Brandi would look great as a redhead. Subtle and shiny tone would be great and absolutely set her apart in the blonde mass that is Hollywood.

    Jezi, pass the word along. Cut about 3 inches off the hair, full-body conditioner, and a classy-rocking red. She’d rocket…..I mean rock-it.

    • Eileen says:

      As a redhead myself (bottle-but my natural is auburn :) I totally agree too! She’d rock it as a redhead!
      And for whoever said she looks good for an “old chick” ???? Really? 38 is old? I’m turning 38 this year and I think its ridiculous to say that’s old. I don’t start labeling “old” until you hit 70s. Even when I was in my 20s I felt this way.
      She looks gorgeous and if I had that body and was single, I’d be wearing this and all the other hot outfits she has. She is my muse now that I am about to hit single life again. Thank you B for all your support in what I am going through and showing me how its done!

      • Lady D says:

        Eileen, I sincerely wish you luck in the next phase of your life. You sound like a decent, smart, and caring person.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        38 is nowhere NEAR old. Anyone who says that is probably in their 20s or younger and sorry, I’ll take my 30s (I’m 33) over my 20s any day of the f*cking week. Sex is better, more confidence, more money, and less try-harding, everything is 100% better.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      No, no- brunette but with strong red highlights. Show off the great body, but in a more understated way (i.e. a tight dress but one that doesn’t expose flesh). And more sleek: cut a few inches off, maybe to the collarbone. I like her sexy librarian glasses, too. And no more fillers- can someone take notes? :)

  28. jferber says:

    Brandi is seriously gorgeous. Love everything in this look, except the shoes.

  29. philasweet says:

    I never get why people thinks she’s attractive. Her face always looks jacked. I’ll give her a nice body, for an old chick.

    • Happymom says:

      “an old chick”? Seriously? We all age, dear. Even you.

      • philasweet says:

        Thanks. I’m aware. My response to becoming ‘an old chick’ (not sure why you think that’s so derogatory, would ‘older chick’ be more pc?) would not be to pump my lips, cheeks and forehead full of junk til I resemble plastic surgery barbie, ugh.

      • Jennifer12 says:

        Did you ever read “Faust”? This reminds me of the scene where the young witch is scorning the older witches because they’ve lost their looks “while I sit naked on my goat and show my fine young body”. And the old witches say something back like, “Our manners are too good, my dear, to match your youthful bragging. Never fear- you’ll rot and soon be sagging.” Something like that, anyway.

    • Jennifer12 says:

      Because qualifying her looking good “for an old chick” IS derogatory. She’s not quite 40; how is that old? It’s not young, but it’s not exactly one foot in the grave either. I completely agree about the plastic surgery reponse many people have to aging, however. Helen Mirren and Cate Blanchett are great examples of how to age like the cool women they are.

  30. Mandy says:

    I think Brandi is stunning… She has a body to die for… Rock it BG

  31. K says:

    They are all eeewww. When they look in the mirror, do they not see how scary and unattractive their botoxed faces looks like? Uglies

    • Happymom says:

      My theory is that in LA and Orange County they’re surrounded by other fakey looking women-so they don’t even realize what’s normal anymore.

    • claire says:

      Yeah, I think that is the normal for there. I hope that Brandi, and others, even LR, stop before they completely make caricatures out of their faces. Plastic surgery is a slippery slope, and once you’ve got the “look”, you’ll just never look normal again!

      Totally agree with you that it’s gotten out of hand with what makes someone a celebrity these days.

  32. crys737 says:

    Brandi looks like a stick with boobs in that first pic. Girl has no curves.

  33. Francesca says:

    Kyle is the pan ultimate mean grown up female. She is a viper with lots of pain.

  34. dee says:

    She looks fine but why is the ex of an unemployed c-list actor of any interest to anyone?

  35. Celine says:

    Holy Botox.

  36. ria says:

    Brandi looks gorgeous. The dress compliments her body nicely, not liking her shoe choice. I will admit I do love Taylor’s dress, just not on her.

  37. heidi says:

    Lisa and Ken are my picks. Brandi has such a stunning face, but photographs terribly. Change the hairstyle, soften the brows and come down off such a high heel. And gain 10 lbs. She’s too obsessed with skinny.

  38. Julie says:

    Brandi looks way too fake. For living in CA she sure is pale! Yikes…lol

  39. Happymom says:

    I just needed to add that I love reading all of your entertaining posts about crazy Leann and Brandi.

  40. skuddles says:

    Meh… budget. But then again, they all look budget to me.

  41. Aubra says:

    The dress is simple and isn’t so over the top it’s fug! I like. Brandi is cool peeps, she tried a bit too hard, but she’s a sweetie I think. Kyle is just below tolerable, I can take hr or leave her! I hope Camille comes back…

  42. Mar says:

    So much plastic surgery. Im sorry I’m just not a fan of anything that is obvious.

  43. Snowpea says:

    For anyone who needs a refresher, allow me.

    Brandi has been held up as the poster girl everywhere for all scorned women who turn the whole thing on its head and emerge triumphant.

    So that imbecile Eddie cheated on Brandi (by ALL accounts a really warm, down to earth, funny woman) with that scheming, stalking narcissist LeAnn and look at what happened:

    •Eddie’s stuck with a sociopath with half a brain cell.

    •LeAnn’s career is in the toilet.

    The only winner here is Brandi. She got rid of her loser hubby. Her career is taking off.

    The reason why women everywhere love Brandi is because she got given lemons and she made margaritas ; ) Go Brandi, you are gold!

    • dee says:

      What exactly is her “career”? She doesn’t actually do anything but exist does she? She’s the poster girl for people who are famous for no reason,have no discernable talent and tirelessly promote themselves instead of getting actual jobs. The world didn’t need another one of those.

      • joanne says:

        her career is being a model. she is a mother which is a little bit more than just existing. she is making the best of a very bad situation and supporting her two children using every resource she can.usually i just lurk here but your demeaning of a mother is just nasty.

      • Joanna says:

        yeah, i don’t get brandi’s appeal. just b/c she’s been cheated on and is raising kids, lots of people do/go through that. plus she has a really young bf who seems to occupy a lot of poor brandi’s time. i would have more respect for her if she had a job that entitled actual physical labor.not just posing in sky-high heels and banging a young guy

        People do get cheated on, yes. But not many have a has-been celebrity stalk them in their neighborhood, set up fake accounts to stalk them on twitter, encourage fans and paid friend/employees to do the same, paint themselves as the victim in numerous interviews, yet complain if the actual victim speaks up, SWF hard the ex-wife…I mean, the list goes on and on. It’s a freaking movie script. And not at all normal. She gets my respect for dealing with that nut case on a weekly basis. She’s not completely polished with some of the things she’s said, but she doesn’t seem narcissistic and evil, like the woman that is currently trying so hard to be her.

        Oy! I didn’t “demean a mother.” You pointed out her “career” as something to be admired. I question whether she has one beyond running with the publicity she’s gotten because her d-bag husband cheated on her. Tell me about what a wonderful mother she is if that is your point, not about her so-called career. Maybe she’s a model but she’s more famous being cheated on and subsequently jumping on the self-promotion train. There’s no shame in being the victim of a cheating jerk,but there is no great honor in it either and it does not make her an intrinsically noble or interesting person or the “poster girl” for anything but the afore-mentioned self-promotion.

      Not just women. We gays love her.

      @snowpea — i would have to agree with you on brandi being the poster girl for women who have been cheated on and make gold out of a crap situation. everything was so public then, and even now leann still rubs salt into the wounds almost daily with her ‘bonus’ mom rants and paid pap opportunities showcasing her bought and paid for family.
      i see it as, if brandi can deal with leann’s constant bullsh*t, and still put a smile on her face and go out in someplace as hard to make it in as LA and make that money for her and her two young children.. MORE POWER TO HER.
      i don’t feel its right to judge others on how they make their money, as long as its legal and legit, and moral obviously. she’s just taking care of her family.

    What a beautiful woman!

    Count down to LeeAnn trying to copy this look. Clue: You can’t!

  45. crtb says:

    Am I looking at different pictures than everyone else? Brandi is NOT beautiful!
    Scrawny ugly thing pencil thin legs. And her breast look so fake and bolted on. If LeAnne hadn’t stolen her husband, she’d be another nobody in Hollywood that wewouldn’t care about.

  46. Kesha says:

    Brand’s dress reminds me of a bedsheet.

    I agree her hair would look great darker a rich chestnut brown.

    Brandi your shoes….no…NO

    No.

    As for the rest of the House of Wax women, I…oh right I just gave my opinion…Hideous, although I still love Lisa and Camile.

  47. Amy says:

    Lisa Vanderpump’s got the best boobs of the bunch.

    …That’s all I’ve got.

  48. Kesha says:

    These women’s “faces” look like a cruel punishment from sinning.

    Brandi stay away from the knife and needles…

  49. Kesha says:

    Oh forgot: Dear Leann,

    Advice, when you copy this exact style in a few weeks, maybe at one of your concerts or taking Eddie and sponger clan to dinner, please do not team it with the “messy” (but actually tried real hard) up do…thanks.

    kyle is THEE mean girl. manface.

    she also took a play out of brandi’s book and appears to have went braless. pretty sure she said this was a no no.

    brandi looks genuinely happy and relaxed. i think she would look good with darker hair too.. a warm, rich brown with golden honey highlights.

  51. bej says:

    Ugh! That group pic with all the RHOBH ladies is sad. All that botox, lip plumping and surgery has had the opposite effect to what I presume they were aiming for. It has aged them all, and they look ridiculous and uncomfortable.

  52. Holl says:

    Kyle has nothing on mean girl Jody from Real Housewives of Vancouver (Which is wayy more epic and classy than beverly hills).

    But I agree Brandi would look great if she covered up more. I’ve been Team Brandi since 09 but I wish she would cover “the girls” up more often. She has an amazing body. Darker hair would be great too.

    Thank you Claire for mentioning just a few of the reasons Brandi is a role model for many women. Brandi is a funny loving strong beautiful woman. Brandi, in spite of being stalked, harassed and threatened by her ex and his hillbilly has been is still going strong and trying to make a career for herself and a life for her family. Her ex is married to a millionaire and yet he pays little or no child support because he refuses to get regular work to support his own kids. He uses Leann’s money and legal team to try to hurt Brandi and her boys. He and Leann use the boys in photo-ops weekly, to try to hurt and harass Brandi. Still, Brandi has shown herself to be the bigger person, more emotionally mature, getting on with her life and supporting and loving her boys. He ex has walked away from parenting the boys, and leaves them to be cared for by a woman who is seen in inappropriate sexual poses, and making sexual innuendos about the children. Leann and Eddie also use the boys weekly for their own publicity props. If a non celebrity dad were to expose the boys to anything like what Eddie and Leann do, he would have very limited visitation and Child Protective Services would be involved. Brandi is a hero.

      Beautifully said- this is why Brandi inspires loyalty in people who know her and those who don’t.

  54. thetruthhurts says:

    Brandi doesn’t need to change her hair color or her clothes. She looks great. If she wanted to do anything, wear less makeup. In the few episodes we saw her in with light makeup, she looked really young and beautiful. A lot of women don’t realize how heavy makeup ages them.

    Brandi is GORGEOUS
