Brandi Glanville’s boozy July 4th on social media – what is going on with her?

The 4th of July is a celebration of American independence. It’s also a day to eat too much, blow up stuff and drink to excess. (Or, if you’re a crazy person like me, you get up at 4 am and run 6.2 miles through a sweltering Atlanta morning in a Wonder Woman costume, but I digress.) I’m sure most of us are guilty of posting blurry videos of fireworks and pics of the kiddos with sparklers on Instagram or Facebook, but Brandi Glanville took things to the extreme – setting off some fireworks of her own on social media.

The 43-year-old Real Housewife of Beverly Hills alum, who has already rubbed most of the cast members of her latest reality show, Famously Single, the wrong way, is no stranger to boozing it up and having notoriously iffy taste in men. Apparently, Brandi wanted the world to know that she is still “famously single,” so why not take advantage of the long holiday weekend to post drunken ramblings and butt selfies?

Brandi kicked off her festivities on Saturday, tweeting, “I’ve tricked a VERY hot man into coming over to help me turn on my BBQ – little does he know he will be grilling & may never be allowed to leave.” We never learn who this mystery man is, but later in the evening, she tweeted a rear view photo of herself, clad only in barely there panties and a tank top cooking up something in the kitchen (not a euphemism). She also shared the shot on Instagram with the caption, “It’s 1230 and I’m still in PJ’s cooking for people that are constantly hungry & sneaking cheeky pics of me over the stove 💋” (The link is NSFW.) The photographer isn’t the only one who’s hungry, right?

And the fun continues! Back on Twitter, we learn that Brandi is having a pool party and later tweets, “This a semi drunken decision but I’ve decided no more group dates, late night calls or pretending I’m not ur girl…because I’m not anymore [kissy face emoji].” She also posts a photo in a blue bra and thong with the caption, “Dear a**hole this is no longer yours [broken heart emoji] bye.” (Again, link is NSFW.) And, just in case you may have missed it, she posted the same image to Instagram with the caption, “Drunken post! French cut is back! #ibizasuit ready to re-start my life! happy 4th.” Drunken post? You don’t say! She really wants to let you all know that she’s an independent lady, doesn’t she? The only thing I can embed here from Brandi’s liquor-induced shenanigans is a quick lip synch to a cover of “You Don’t Own Me.” And trust me, she’s got nothing on Bette, Goldie and Diane here. As RuPaul would say, “Sashay away.”

Tipsy and single ❤️❤️💋happy 4th ! Today truly is my Independence Day #free

Wow. Just wow. I wonder who the “a-hole” is? It’s probably comedian Theo Von, as he kind of exudes that douchey quality that I sense when I see Dane Cook. But really, Brandi, posting all of this stuff on social media smacks of desperation. I’m sure part of this is to promote Famously Single, but it’s all just a little too much. I shudder to think what is coming to Brandi’s social media accounts on Labor Day weekend.

    I wasn’t a fan of hers until I started watching famously single. She seems pretty nice and Aubrey keeps attacking for some reason I haven’t figured out.

    • Jess says:

      Agree, Brandi seems like the only normal one is isn’t obsessed with being famous. Poor Aubrey is so delusional about herself it’s really kinda sad.

      • Flowerchild says:

        Come on now she on yet another reality show because she obsessed with being famous . Do you really think she or any of these people or on this show for any other reason.

      • BearcatLawyer says:

        @flowerchild, I think Brandi does these shows for money. She sure as heck is not getting a ton of child support from Eddie. While there is a lot about Brandi that I find unlikeable or problematic, she is at least hustling and stretching out her 15 minutes rather than relying on a washed up country singer for everything.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Those are Brandi’s only options? “Hustling” or relying on the Ex’s new wife? How about getting a real job like a responsible parent? Or better yet, years ago, take some of that Real Housewives money and get an education. I don’t admire any woman who basically acts like a trashy fool for money with sheninigan after shenanigan that her kids will see later. She took the easy way out – the fame ho way out.

      • anon33 says:

        LMAO. She’s so not obsessed with being famous that she’s literally on a REALITY show called “FAMOUSly single.”

        Come on now…

      • Jess says:

        Sure I think Brandi Wants to be famous, but the others seem more delusional about how famous they really are. One or two of them I’ve never even heard of, these are all d-list celebrities acting like a-listers and I think it’s funny. Brandi seems the most down to earth, maybe Pauly D too, but Audrey is crazy, lol.

      • jenn12 says:

        I don’t think she has a lot of options. Seriously, she has a high school diploma, hasn’t been in school in years, and she’s not exactly a brain surgeon. She leveled the playing field a bit when she achieved some fame/notoriety. I think she will do these shows as long as she can. Not sure how much she can make off her wine, which has a good reputation. That said, while I’ve always liked her and felt for her with what her ex and his mistress put her through, she needs to mature a little. Silly posts about “this isn’t yours” or whatever are just dumb; she needs to identify troublesome patterns and change them.

    • Samtha says:

      She seemed really nice the first couple seasons of RHoBH, too. Then she turned into a giant mess.

      • gwen says:

        I think she was ‘encouraged’ by the producers to liven things up with the other women otherwise, low ratings.

    • Kitten says:

      But as we all know by now, those shows are scripted. I’m not saying that Brandi isn’t nice, I’m just saying that the reality show format probably isn’t the most accurate way to judge a person’s character.

      • Bridget says:

        These are all reality show vets, and they know that drama=screen time. Brandi knows that she needs to clean up her image. Aubrey knows that the more obnoxious she is, the more she’ll be featured, no matter how embarrassing it may ultimately be.

        It amazes me how much some individual value being famous and being on TV over any sort of dignity.

  2. NewWester says:

    Does Brandi even think how posting things like this online must affect her children? She is a grown woman and has the right to live her life, but come on. Tone it down a bit

    • Kitten says:

      That’s all I can think of when I see her. I know the “think about the children!” crap is often overplayed but it definitely applies here. Jesus. If I act like that at age 43, I want an intervention. Therapy, electroshock treatment, medication, SOMETHING to stop me from making an ass out of myself.

      • AnnieRUOk says:

        Thank you! I feel like I’ve entered the twilight zone where everyone has forgotten that this is the mother of young children. Drinking, promiscuity, sexy pics can all be part of a healthy lifestyle, but when you post this on social media, I question your mental health.
        Brandi is great with scripted reality, until she gets drink, and the real her comes out.
        Remeber when she got drunk in Amsterdam and gave an unwanted kiss then SLAPPED LvP in the face?
        If your friend abuses you, whether alcohol is involved or not, thats not a healthy person.

  3. here or there says:

    Who cares who it is? I can’t stand this woman.

  4. Jess says:

    Eh, Brandi seems to post a lot of bikini or drunken butt selfies, is this really different? I’m curious about this mystery man though. LeAnn posted a bunch of them also, of course!

  5. goofpuff says:

    oy no kidding and this sounds like promotion aka media grab for attention. gotta ramp up the hype to keep her show alive!

  6. Snowpea says:

    Oh yay! I’ve been hanging out for a Glanville/Rimes post and here it is. I’m still not entirely sure why a story about these weirdos makes my day, but there you have it. They are my secret guilty pleasure. No one IRL knows how much I love these creeps ha ha

    But seriously, I love Brandi. Always have, always will. Maybe it’s because I feel for her so much, having to deal with that maniac Rimes day in, day out, even now five years down the track after her life was torn apart.

    Or maybe it’s because she’s refused to kowtow to Rimes who comes across as a total freaking nutjob on any day ending in Y. Who knows? But I have a real soft spot for her.

  7. Kat says:

    This is pretty standard for Brandi. She’s a little wild and can be really silly. Does she take it overboard sometimes.. Of course, but who really cares. Let her be who she is. What LeAnn does on social media is far worse. If the boys end up damaged, it will be cause if their stepmom’s actions, not their mom’s.

    • Sullivan says:

      Nah, the boys are (or will be) screwed-up because of their parents, first and foremost. Their step-mother isn’t helping, but those boys are ultimately the responsibility of their parents. Those kids did not win the parent lottery.

    • GuestTX says:

      “Does she take it overboard sometimes.. Of course, but who really cares. Let her be who she is. ”


  8. Christin says:

    More foggy rear selfies that springs her copycat into action, which doesn’t even get mentioned here. (Imagining steam coming out of copycat’s ears.)

  9. Samtha says:

    Brandi has been a mess for a while now. She’s her own worst enemy.

  10. Barrett says:

    I used to root for her but she lost me….. She’s overkill. And w the 2 boys it’s just wrong….I want her to be better. Sexy not over the top slutty and desperate!

    • Christin says:

      I think she is just chasing any paycheck at this point.

      This persona (or maybe it’s really her, who knows) may be getting her a gig here and there, but I would be concerned about longer-term prospects. Unless she’s planning to be the female H. Stern, I don’t see where this goes in five to ten years.

  11. JudyK says:

    Her butt is her best feature.

  12. ItDoesntReallyMatter says:

    Wow, her face looks so awful in the singing video. Her horrible plastic surgery is so much more noticeable in movement; she looks like the Joker. Why did such a pretty woman do that to her face???

  13. msw says:

    I went from cheering for her to being annoyed with her to feeling pity for her. Brandi is in trouble, and the media loves it. She is not balanced or happy.

    • AnnieRUOk says:

      I feel like everyone has this unhealthy fascination with her. Even though she’s not talented, it reminds me of Amy Winehouse.
      So many intelligent women being like “she’s just having fun!”
      No, imagine if this was your mother posting butt species, drunken tweets, and spewing vitrol.
      Her poor kids must hear about this at school, and of course Brandi’s narcissism, vanity, alcoholism, and borderline seeming personality could care less.

      • PaulY says:

        @AnnieRUOk Amy Winehouse may have had her issues, but please don’t dismiss her as talentless.

  14. Relli says:

    I thought she was most recently dating Calum Best (sp) from the show and famous for dating the lohan.

    I listen to her podcast, because she us actually very good in that format. Recently she had on one of her cast mates from the show somaya (sp) I think?!?!? Whoever she got in a fight with on the first episode and they laughed about how they didn’t get along at first but now are friends. She also talk quite frequently about how her kids know she has a crazy public persona but as they have discussed that’s how she pays the bills so anytime she does stuff like this I just assume it’s to garner stories and social media numbers.

  15. KittenFarts says:

    I’m pretty sure Theo Von was at Venice Beach this wknd based off his snapchats. I dont know if that’s close to Brandi or not… I also don’t think she would hide his identity. He’s not famous enough for it to matter or not

  16. Murphy says:

    Just reading about how “boozy” both she and Leanne can get gives me an upset stomach.

  17. Bridget says:

    Running the Peachtree sounds like way more fun (and a better use of your time) than Brandi’s 4th of July.
