Brandi Glanville might be allowed back on RHOBH if she ‘comes to Jesus’


I’m sort of enjoying all of the pearl-clutching over Brandi Glanville and her seemingly abrupt exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s looking more and more like Bravo executives made the decision to kick Brandi to the curb – her exit was not Brandi’s decision in any way. So why did it happen? Because Brandi is a “diva”. Because she’s mouthy and drunk. Because she… brought manufactured drama to a reality show? Are we kicking drama queens off of reality shows now? Granted, I don’t watch any of the Real Housewife shows, but here’s my Pro Tip: Brandi is pretty much the only Real Housewife that I spend any time on professionally. Which means she’s good for business, whether your business is blogging or producing reality shows. Anyway, here are some stories percolating through the interwebs:

Brandi is a diva. One source told People Magazine: “Brandi got too big for her britches. She was a diva, and it came around to bite her. By the end, she couldn’t get along with anyone, and no one wanted to shoot with her.” Ouch. Brandi responded via Twitter: “I’ve never been called a diva in my life – I’m a complete team player just ask my friends! #girlsgirl. I think the news outlets should ask people that have actually worked with me if I’m a diva @LeezaGibbons @nbc @realDonaldTrump”.

Brandi is a liability. Because apparently there are “insurance issues” with filming drunk bitches catfighting? Perhaps. A source tells Dish Nation, “Bravo and production were over it and she basically became a liability. Believe or not, she became too toxic for the show and just didn’t fit in any longer…Brandi was told she was let go from the show nearly a week ago, and she’s already freaking out. As much as she’d like to move on to her own venture, she really needs the Housewives money.” I too am worried about what Brandi would do for a revenue stream post-RHOBH. Her books are successful and she could probably do paid appearances in LA and Las Vegas. Maybe she could figure out a way to do her own reality show?

Brandi might hit rock bottom. The same source tells Dish Nation: “She’s been in a dark place for a while now, this was bound to happen. Friends are holding out hope that this might be her rock bottom. It was easy for Brandi to drink too much and cause drama on the show just to make sure she’d appear in most of the segments. Without that excuse, she’s going to have to face herself in her everyday life.” This source really wants to say that Brandi is an alcoholic. Is she? Or is she just a heavy social drinker?

Brandi might come back to RHOBH. Sources tell TMZ that Brandi was “difficult and erratic” on the set of RHOBH but that producers haven’t completely given up on her. Like, they’re not going to replace her outright… yet. TMZ says the producers are “hoping Brandi views this as a ‘Come to Jesus’ and if she comes back for occasional visits, she can prove to them she can act appropriately enough so she doesn’t get in the way of production.” This “guest appearance” thing would mean that Brandi would have to admit that she was and is a mess AND it would mean less money.

    She could have a new career as the Joker in another Batman movie…

    • charity says:

      I admire her. She was left with nothing by a cheating husband. She had 2 babies to support and she managed to get it together and write best-sellers, get on a successful show, have a good clothing line and have her own wine label. I know so many women who have been pushed to the limit by a cheating husband and a manipulative mistress who wants to be the future wife and claim ownership of the babies of the 1st wife. You rock on Brandi, while I may not agree with everything you do, you would probably not agree with everything I do. So is life, I ADMIRE YOU!!!!xo

    • JohnWayneLives says:

      I cannot get over how badly she has Fkd up her face.
      And she’s mean, low budget, dressed up, white trash.

  2. Abbott says:

    If these leaked stories are how Bravo is trying to get her in line, she’s better off without them.

  3. Trillion says:

    Her makeup artist clearly hates her.

    • Byte Me says:

      She says she picks at her face. You can tell she does.

      • Mrs Odie says:

        I can think of several substances that make a person pick at the bumps on their face.

        I was thinking the same thing about her make-up. It really ages her. Way too much rouge on the cheeks. And too much crap IN the cheeks. I hate the new “face” that’s trendy right now. Those awful cheek implants. Everyone seems to have them and they’re horrible. I recently noticed them on Heather McDonald. They look bad on everybody, but women keep getting them done.

  4. Cali says:

    I think the mainstream websites (people, us, etc) have tried hard to jump in the reality TV realm but their sources are just not as good as the more established reality-only type sites. They need to stick to their A-lister coverage.

    That said, I hope Brandi doesn’t come back at all. She belongs on a different type of reality show. I am no prude but she absolutely was too crass and gross and raunchy. It wasn’t fun to watch at all. She was okay the first two seasons but then she just went WAY overboard and kept hiding behind the “it’s my job to bring drama” stance. Sometimes the crazy ones are fun to watch (like Kenya Moore), but Brandi took it to a weird place.

    • MG says:

      I think Brandi realized that “bad” one gets the most attention on these shows and maybe even a spin-off. Look at Nene Leakes. She has fought with everyone and has become very successful..but she’s entertaining to watch. Brandi is not. She’s just toxic and I hated watching her. She didn’t do “bad girl” the right way. Happy to see she got booted.

      • bondbabe says:

        Nene has personality; Brandi has booze.

      • Mrs Odie says:

        Yeah, I got really tired of Brandi’s high-pitched shrieking. “What about you?! What about you?!” Other “characters” on the show deflected just as much, but none in that dog whistle of a tone.

        No wonder she gets along with Kim Richards so well. My theory is that Kim makes Brandi feel normal by comparison.

  5. bettyrose says:

    Or she could learn a skill. Get a real job.

    • Sugar says:

      She’s over 40 with no education, has two kids, and lives in an expensive state. Her best bet is to remain in the entertainment sector and parlay her notoriety into other job opportunities.

      • bettyrose says:

        But it’s demeaning and her options are drying up. And not all of California is Beverly Hills. Not even all of L.A. plenty of lower middle class families live in rent controlled apartments in good school districts. There’s an excellent community college system. She could train be a hairdresser or real estate agent in a few months. She’s not the only woman to face this scenario in her 40s.

      • claire says:

        Probably. But I think the issue there is that if she has to move even further from the kids’ school and is on a much lower income, her douchebag ex will probably try to twist the knife even further and go to the courts and say he should have full custody or something like that.

      • Granger2 says:

        Claire, as it is, Eddie could have gone for, and achieved, full custody just by her episodes on RHOBH. For extra back-up, he had her saying she wished she was molested (joke or not, its still out there that she said it), AND, the pics of her being legless with her tampon string hanging out. And much much more. He obviously doesn’t want full custody because he could have had it with all the above. If she lives in a less-affluent area but has a stable home and out of the public eye, he won’t have the grounds he does now.

      • claire says:

        Sorry, but I don’t agree with that. Her being drunk and caught by paps, and her making a joke (context is important here), are not grounds for custody. They had nothing to do with her kids and weren’t on her parenting time. On top of that, Ed likes the drink himself.

        However, if she is unable to keep the kids in a certain lifestyle or it is a hardship for her to maintain transportation of the kids to the school, because she would be forced to live far away, or, it would be hardship on the kids to have to travel that far (Ed could argue the commute is disruptive), then that’s something Eddie could go to court with.

        I do agree though that Eddie potentially wouldn’t want them full time – it would greatly cut into his partying/vacation lifestyle.

    • Ennie says:

      Her problem is trying to compete with the money the other “mother” has.

  6. Rhiley says:

    I don’t religiously watch any of the Real Housewives, but if I am on an elliptical and the only show worth watching is Real Housewives BH or OC, I won’t change the channel. Brandi is a mess and she is obnoxious, but she stirs up enough drama to keep the story line rolling. Even though the Real Housewives of BH are rich, they are not all that interesting. In fact, they are pretty boring. But Brandi can get them wound up and it brings a little life to the show. So if she isn’t on RHBH, and Kim is gone, and so is Andrian Malouf and her My Little Pony Hair, the show is going to be a real snooze fest. An aside, I think it would be kind of awesome of Gigi Hadid got a spin off and it CRUSHED the RHBH ratings.

    • Jenn K says:

      She does NOT want him back. If you read her books as clear. But yeah it feels good to be successful as your husband cheats on you and leaves you with nothing. I admire her for comingback from nothing tosupport her children.

  7. Here or there says:

    I miss what RHOBH used to be about – glamorous parties, jet-setting, etc. The reason I started watching was for the amazing houses, clothes, etc. Kinda hard to see that when it’s wrapped up in drama drama drama all the time.

    I think the franchise needs to raise the bar a bit and make it more classy. Believe it or not, there are fans who don’t need the drunken bullsh-t drama to make it interesting.

    That’s just me though…

  8. Talie says:

    She screwed herself at the reunion, even attacking Andy Cohen — and then bringing up his personal life! Not smart at all…

    She could take lessons from Lisa Rinna on how to be crazy, but still fun.

  9. Luca76 says:

    She’s actually the reason I stopped watching RHOBH she’s just really an awful person. I really don’t care if her husband cheated on her 7 years ago, and left her for Satan. There is no excuse for some of the crap that comes out of her mouth and she isn’t entertaining.

    The format in general is played out it none of the RH shows are mindless fun anymore- you just have grown as women acting like babies.

    • claire says:

      I agree. All the shows are super tacky and trashy.
      That’s kinda why I don’t get why people just go after Brandi. The other shows have some pretty crazy physical fights, one of the stars from another is in prison….These shows are NOT the height of class by any means.

  10. heidi says:

    Brandi did not get paid for the event. She got paid travel expenses and anything else she was out but not the initial promised guest appearance sum. Then they replaced her with Joanna Krupa.

    • Mrs Odie says:

      How is getting reimbursed travel expenses NOT getting paid? When I am NOT getting paid, I have to buy my own plane ticket, hotel, and pay my own per diem.

  11. OhDear says:

    This seems like a publicity stunt.

  12. lem says:

    I think since they got rid of Kim they had to get rid of her–everyone else on the show circled the wagons and it was 5 v 2 for the whole season. Even with Kim gone, that wasn’t going to change for next season—no one was going to forgive Brandi (not saying one way or the other whether they should) and it was going to be 5 v 1 for the whole season. Bravo would’ve lost more viewers b/c no one wants to watch it play out again and the other ladies have no reason to fight with anyone other than Brandi if she’s on the show. Now the remaining 5 will have to fight amongst themselves instead and that’ll create new drama to keep viewers interested.

  13. Cali says:

    I have to say that this trick needs to STOP posting photos of her young sons in their underwear on social freaking media! It’s so disturbing!!! She did it again this weekend.

  14. Byte Me says:

    Can’t help but wonder who these so called ‘sources’ are. I hope Brandi chooses to leave that network altogether and not look back. Let those other woman backstab someone else this season and they will or the show will lose viewers.

  15. anne_000 says:

    For all those waxing nostalgic about RHOBH’s season one of being about rich women doing rich women things…. it was actually about Kyle going after Camille, the medium with the electric cigarette, Kyle and Lisa V. going after Kim, Kyle freaking out more than the Hulk in the limo against Kim, Camille’s relationship disaster, etc.

    None of the housewives series were ever akin to the TV show “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” ala Robin Leech.

    Anyhoo, just having the mean girls left means more segments of Eileen talking about going on an airplane without her son; Lisa R. clearing up her backyard of suspiciously new items like that swing set; Lisa V. saying nothing much witty but naive viewers not knowing any better because all they notice is the English accent; and Kyle pretending that she’s a really amusing person.

    Every RH season, producers always throws in a victim to be fed on by the piranhas. Without drama, it’s just going the way of RHO Miami and RHO DC.

  16. WHAT HAS SHE DONE TO HER FACE!? Those fillers are horrifying.

  17. why? says:

    If Brandi is fired from the show, why are Kyle and Lisa still giving exclusive interviews about Brandi? They don’t want Brandi on the show, but it’s like they realize that RHOBH can’t survive without Brandi.
