Brandi Glanville sobs on camera after some ‘drunk’ photos were published


WE TV celebrates the return of 'Love After Lockup'

Brandi Glanville is a somewhat tragic figure. I tend to believe that much of Brandi’s life in the past decade has been trying to make lemonade out of the basket of lemons she was handed. She was a model who landed a D-list actor and they lived a comfortable life with two young children. Then her husband cheated on her with LeAnn Rimes and everything fell apart. Brandi learned that Eddie had been cheating on her with other women too, but LeAnn was the one who stuck (mostly because LeAnn stalked him for months). Eventually, Brandi and Eddie’s marriage fell apart, and LeAnn continued to stalk, this time she was stalking Brandi. For years, this bullsh-t was happening. In that time, Brandi became her own little C-list celebrity brand, parlaying the wronged woman thing for a book/memoir and a supporting role on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and more. Brandi hustled and had some success here and there. But all of the bad stuff still gets to her.

A few days ago, Brandi was photographed looking drunk as hell – you can see the photos here. Brandi’s overdone the Botox and fillers for years, and she can barely move her face or her mouth at this point, which adds to the whole “what’s happening here?” vibe. Once those photos came online, Brandi got sad and upset. She clapped back at some people on Twitter and tweeted this:

I’ve been VERY open about Suffering from depression and having recently switched antidepressants So please please stop these negative comments unless you really just want to send me over the f–king edge. I’m sad and ashamed isn’t that enough?

Sorry for my tweet I just realized the only people I owe explanations to are my family. I’m not 25 my body isn’t perfect and I got wasted i’m sure it’s happened to plenty of you however you don’t have people taking your picture and putting on the internet

[From Brandi’s Twitter]

She switched antidepressants and she’s still drinking heavily while on a new MAOI inhibitor? That’s super-dangerous – depending on the antidepressant, one or two drinks can make someone feel incredibly loopy. After people were still making fun of her – please stop doing that – Brandi posted this video (below) where she’s crying into the camera. She admits: “I’m telling you I’m embarrassed,” and saying how difficult it is to be around women with “perfect husbands,” women who get to see their kids 100% of the time. She seems really devastated and sad. Poor Brandi.

    I don’t get it. If I saw a pic of myself looking like that I think I’d just quit with all of the fillers and recognize that I look better as a unique human being with some wrinkles. Why can’t these women stop messing with their face?

    • Kitten says:

      Right. If the choice is between wrinkles and this, then I’m wrinkles all the way.

      That being said, it can’t be easy knowing that your paid thousands to disfigure yourself, so I do feel sorry for her in that regard.

    • jane says:

      She should hold her head up!! pictures to be shared are on the internet LEANN RIMES NOSE PICKING those are some real beauts

      • Puravidacostarica says:

        I actually like Photo No. 1 of 25 of LeAnn the best if you check out the “LeAnn Rimes confidently takes water masters paddle boarding” article on the DailyFail.

        Would post a link but I think that is verboten.

  2. Snowflake says:

    I like Brandi a lot. She reminds me of a lot of my girlfriends. Their husband leaves them for another woman, they try thi get over it by chasing younger men. But the women are devastated by their marriage breaking up and partying to cope. Even the plastic surgery i can understand. Your gf tries something, looks good, you decide to try it. I think her biggest love life problem is she loves the bad boys and won’t stop dating them. I’m a little cray cray and having a stable husband helps keep me from doing crazy things. I think a stable man would help her a lot.

    • Jen says:

      I totally agree about the stable man. I have been drawn to the bad apples from the start, but- I made sure not to marry one.

      • Barce says:

        I think Brandy needs INTERVENTION. She seems to be a binge drinker. I remember those horrid pics of Brandy being drunk out of her mind with tampon strings hanging out of her underwear being held up by two people. She needs to be responsible for her own actions. I don’t think a boyfriend/husband would help her or it’s fair to put that kind of a responsibility on somebody.

      • JByrdKU says:

        I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having someone around that makes you more stable (I get that), but maybe part of her problem is that she never learned to be stable on her own. She needs to do that first.

    • Lilly says:

      But what stable man wants Brandi? She’s so messy, and she turns on her friends easily.

  3. Notyouraveragehousewife says:

    I’ve struggled with substance abuse in the past so I feel awful for Brandi. She is clearly suffering. She’s made mistakes but she’s still human. I wish someone would step in to help her but she seems so stubborn at times. It seems that her parents (at least her father) have been fed up with her behavior for a long time so I hope some other loved ones step in. She can’t do this alone.

    • Chaine says:

      Some people eventually exhaust and burn out all of their supporters.

      • LoveBug says:

        @Chaine : I obviously don’t know Brandy, but to me from what I’ve read and seen about her over the years, she seems to be absolutely an exhausting person.
        I don’t know, if I could be friends with somebody that has tampon strings hanging out of her crotch, because she is nearly a black out drunk.
        There is a huge difference between being a bit tipsy and drooling, vomiting, drunken mess of a human being.
        Brandy had years to clean up her life after hers scum bag husband cheated on her with that disgrace of a human being – Leanne.
        Get some help and stop drinking alcohol while on medication, Brandy.

    • Jess says:

      I always giggle when people reference the tampon string as some sort of bad character trait for her. I’ve seen at least 5 or 6 SOBER women walking around water parks with tampon strings dangling out, and I’ve felt it hanging out when I was in jeans and it was pulling itself out because my legs were rubbing against it. It happens, drunk or not, a random stripper once told me their trick…cut the string if you’re swimming or wearing a short skirt, works like a charm!

      Brandi can be a mess at times at times though, that video was hard to watch, she’s clearly struggling with something.

      • Bailie says:

        Yes, Jess, let’s giggle, it’s very funny…(and classy).
        Brandy has been going through something for years, it’s not the first time I’ve seen her smashed, that’s for sure.
        People like Brandy that are drinking out of control don’t need more excuses in their lives for behaving like a complete mess in front of the whole world, but especially their kids.
        Brandy didn’t have tampon strings hanging out of her vagina, because she was swimming or running, she did, because she was drunk out her mind and had to be supported by friends to walk to a car!
        Big difference I would say, but it seems some people find any excuse for anything.
        She needs help, not ridiculous excuses before it’s too late, we are losing too many people to addiction, partially because of enablers.
        Time to wake up!

      • NYCTYPE says:

        I would have been so embarrassed in front of my friends and strangers alike, if my tampon strings were hanging out of my private parts while I’m very drunk, but on top of it the pics were published for the world to see. I don’t feel sorry for Brandy, she is almost 50 years old, she should know much better and she had years to fix things in her life. It’s time she takes responsibility for her actions, if not for her own well being than for her children, at least. I’m 28 years old and have never been so drunk that my tampon strings were hanging out of my underwear. Even though I felt bad for Brandy for the way her marriage collapsed, she always seem to be a drunken mess, focused too much on her looks and staying young, instead of getting an education to support herself and her kids, because youth doesn’t last and no amount of plastic surgery will make her looking 20 years old again. I know pretty much anything goes, but this is going to end badly for her.

      • Agenbiter says:

        Agreed. An exposed tampon string is not some great moral failing. What on earth is ‘disgusting’ about it, people? Internalize the patriarchy much?

        Calling aspiring influencers looking for an angle: It’s time to free the string! Colorful strings, bedazzled strings, strings with technology attachments …

      • Lilly (with the double-L) says:

        Yes! So the eff what!?! Women have periods and random strings and period panties happen. @Agenbiter, great idea. As for Brandi, I hope she gets some help and it’ll be up to her and the embarrassing signs are pointing to being close.

      • Guild says:

        Her poor sons, I think they are both teenagers. Their mother is a mess and that is bad enough in private to handle, I can’t even imagine in public. Certainly leaves scars. I know it very well, I still try to handle the aftermath at 31. They must be so embarrassed, I remember those photos of Brandy being very, very drunk, held up by 2 people with her tampon strings hanging out of her crotch area. Her kids must be so proud. Brandy is doing a lot of damage to her children, like they don’t have enough to deal with their awful father and stepmother. She is beyond messy, she should get help ASAP, instead of crying on social media and pumping her disfigured face with injections.

    • JByrdKU says:

      100% agree. I know tough times can be difficult to bounce back from, and it can take a long time to get back to ‘okay’.

      That being said, the best thing she can do for her life is take a long hard look at it, ask herself if what she needs is a fresh start where people don’t immediately know who she is or what her life is like, and go from there.

  4. Chelly says:

    I’ll admit it makes it hard to feel bad for someone who constantly judges and criticizes people for the most superficial and shallow things but I also believe her life isnt easy. Chin up, girl

    • JANE says:

      AGENTBITER –
      It’s gross to have tampon strings hanging out almost the same way as a piece of toilet paper would be hanging from someone’s vagina.
      Not everything is about patriarchy, some things are about decency and class.
      But why would there be a need for class and decency these days, right?
      Gross is in, I guess.

      • Ader says:

        Class!? Are you kidding me!? Like someone said above, sometimes it just happens, drunk or not. God, some people are so awful to each other. And so damn judgey!

  5. LORENA says:

    I have a soft spot for Brandi, I really enjoyed her books and am really rooting for her. Her ex husband and Leanne were vile to her and I bet she carries a lot of pain. Hope she gets better

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      I agree with your comment about carrying pain. She needs a good therapist. They can do a world of good toward helping free yourself from a damaged past.

  6. Gil says:

    I have seen pictures of her before the surgeries and she was quite pretty. Now her face is a cautionary tale of why people should go overboard with Botox and fillers. This is just sad. Leave the poor woman alone.

    • KEEKS says:

      this is where, in my opinion, doctors need to be held accountable and stop doing procedures on people with some serious insecurity issues. Don’t FREAK on me. They need to discuss what they want and have a waiting period to ensure that it’s not a manic episode. Doctors are at the root of creating these horrible faces and disfigurements on patients. Should they not be held accountable for continuing to do procedures on patients who have addictions?

    • BeanieBean says:

      Agreed. She was very pretty before, now her nose is too small, her mouth permanently askew, her eyes squinty, and now cheekbones plumping up to meet her eyes. An intervention might help.

    • Christin says:

      I once read that one of the dangers of starting with fillers or PS is that a person can then start obsessing over other perceived flaws. Thus it can become a never-ending line of procedures, which I think has happened to her.

      Years ago, I hoped she would choose a type of work that did not expose her to partying, keeping up with the plastic sisterhood, doing outrageous things for publicity, etc. Brandi never turned away from the reality show type lifestyle, though. She’s almost 50, and this type of lifestyle and “career” is not viable forever.

  7. Clare says:

    No, I’m sorry but she has been cruel, crude and unkind towards other people for years. She passed judgement and comments on other people publicly, for publicity/fame/money/sport. She purposefully draws attention to herself by saying nasty things about other people regardless of their feelings etc. She doesn’t get to play the ‘im so sad’ card when people do the same to her.

    I feel bad that her husband left her for another (ridiculous) woman. That’s got to suck. But her behaviour of for her to own. My sympathy for her is extremely limited. Nothing about her behaviour tells me she is a nice person, or that she would afford kindness to another woman in the same situation as her.

    I also hate that she uses mental health and depression as an excuse for acting like an a-hope. Millions of people suffer with depression and manage to get through life without being d*cks, for the most part.

    • Mrs. Peel says:

      Great post – agree 100%!

    • Kimble says:

      Excellent post.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        I see how this all unfolded, but I still dislike her playing the victim card. She seems most upset that people saw her looking ugly. Get a grip. Move on. Do better. Learn something from this! Volunteer in a hospital and see what REAL problems are like.

    • DML says:

      Yep. And one more thing. ….. take your crap off social media. That is part of the “struggle.” If you can take the heat you have to take yourself out of the fire, but don’t complain about social media on …social media… I will never get it.

    • juliebox says:

      “I also hate that she uses mental health and depression as an excuse for acting like an a-hope.”

      THIS. While I’m glad that mental health issues are getting more attention these days, I don’t like how many people use them as an excuse to be total d*cks to others.

    • Catarina says:

      Clare: Completely agree w you! I have never liked this vain, bitter, mean spirited, crass,, furious woman, who will never get used to the fact that she isn’t young and pretty anymore. There’s nothing beautiful inside of her, either—I think that’s the crux of her problems: she has nothing left to attract a partner with. Being pretty was all she ever had, and now that that’s gone, she feels cheated and alone…Her life is the bed she made herself, though, and I don’t have sympathy for her.

      • Puravidacostarica says:

        How can you say that “being pretty was all she ever had”? What proof do you have about her “insides” as beautiful or not? God, written just like a LeAnn Stan.

  8. CharliePenn says:

    I don’t feel very sorry for her. I know that sounds bad. But did she feel sorry for her children as she continuously exposed private and potentially embarrassing parts of their lives for social media attention? Did she feel bad for others when she repeatedly drove drunk and risked lives? No, she made jokes about needing one of those breathalyzers to even start her car.
    She has been combative and unkind for years. She has been shallow and mean. She has been irresponsible with her son’s privacy and feelings. She has acted like trash and enjoyed the attention.
    I would be happy to see her getting help, feeling healthy, living a better life. But I don’t have any feelings of “oh poor Brandi”.

    • Kitten says:

      Agreed. Her life has been a series of (mostly) terrible choices. Sadly, she hasn’t learned from the terrible results of those choices.

  9. Elisabeth says:

    She needs to take a good hard look at her life and her health. Heavy drinking and mixing prescriptions has never had a good ending. She is playing with her life. Not to mention the fact that she has two children who have suffered enough bad publicity from both parents. Get your act together.

    • Christina says:

      Hollywood and Los Angeles make people weird and crazy. Women like her compare themselves to other people. The place is filled with insecure people who refuse to look inside instead of outside for validation. There are plenty of binge alcoholics trying to cope with the emptiness, and when the people who love the Hollywood try-hards intervene, like Brandi’s father, they are rejected because the Brandi-girls and guys feel that being able to get into the “right” parties with wealthy entertainment types in pursuit of their own mansion makes them special and important. Its drugs and alcohol, but also a complete lack of self esteem that forces them to seek this type of career out. I was born in LA, went to college there, and the vapid culture almost sucked me in, but I didn’t want to depend on my looks and other people’s judgments about my ability to work my personality for a paycheck. I’d prefer to be a regular person.

      My mom was Brandi without the alcoholism and Botox. She worked in the entertainment business as an accountant/bookkeeper, and she wanted the luxury that comes with that life, and now she has nothing but me and my sister. My aunt just told me that she always chose the men in her life over my sister and I. That happens everywhere, but Hollywood validates and give power to people who are shallow, insecure, and even ugly on the inside in the name of money.

  10. Deanne says:

    That video broke my heart. People have been making absolutely cruel comments on her social media about the incident too. Seriously, whether you like a celebrity or not, you have to be an extremely sick individual to viciously attack someone who is in such obvious pain and distress. I don’t care if you like Lisa Vanderpump or not. This isn’t snarking about a stupid, fake reality show that creates drama and edits to portray victims and villains. Some people need to take a good hard look at themselves, because being over the top cruel to someone who is suffering says a lot of really horrible things about who you are. It’s one thing to comment on a gossip site. It’s another to tell someone to kill themselves on Instagram. Brandi really does need to get her act together for the sake of her health. Drinking on anti-depressants, especially new ones is always a bad idea.

    • Reese. says:

      One could also argue that she should be taking a good hard look at herself and not respond to any of these bullies. It’s pointless and feeding back to the negativity.
      If her first priority is her children, then she should be staying off social media, not playing into the court of public opinion, not pleading for understanding to a bunch a strangers.
      If the only people who matter in her life are her family then focus on them, get healthy, recharge, be around positivity. Take a break and get help. Be a positive role model. Stay away from the negativity. It doesn’t help to keep feeding into a social media beast. It’s not where her worth is.

  11. Toot says:

    Her sons are teens now, possibly, so they must have said something too her about her latest pics. She’s had drunk pics before, but never felt the need to apologize like this.

    Brandy needs to get help with her drinking before her sons completely turn away.

    • Mel M says:

      Right?! I was thinking I must be looking at the wrong pics because I feel like I’ve seen worse from her. She doesn’t look drunk so much as botoxed to high heaven to me. Weren’t there photos of her stumbling into a hotel having to be assisted by a security guard or something?

      • Kitten says:

        The tampon string photos are WAY worse.

      • London says:

        Yes, the ” tampon strings drunk photos ” were so disgusting.
        I remember how many people defended her on this very site.
        A lot of us have been through some very tough times, but do not behave like this woman does.
        She seems unwilling to seek help for herself, even though she now has the resources.
        I understand that she went through hell and back in the public eye, but it was years ago and she had now years to deal with the fallout of her wrecked marriage and the consequences.
        For goodness sake get some much needed help NOW!
        I know that drinking heavily in today’s society is so socially acceptable that most people don’t even blink, being black out drunk is becoming very common and a couple of my friends that do not drink at all get some serious side-eye for it, but this kind of drinking is not good for her or her children.
        If she doesn’t want to clean up for herself, do it for your kids.
        And FYI, there are no perfect husband, kids or families, she should know that, she is middle aged!
        Please stop doing whatever you do to your face Brandy, you starting to look very, very, very freaky.
        Why in the world would anybody drink alcohol while on medication???

  12. Eliza says:

    So she brought more attention to photos no one saw by mentioning how she’s switching anti depressant medication while drinking and how could people comment while she’s on the edge? Not that maybe she shouldn’t be getting drunk while switching medication? Or just laughing it off saying 1 too many is not a good look. Listen, I think she’s had a rough card dealt, but she hasnt been an angel either. I’m tired of every celebrity crying into a camera that they can’t be responsible for anything in their lives. She lost her jerk husband, but she still has her children, celebrity fame, a career/ speaker / writer job. She needs to grow up, take her mental health seriously, and drop the friends who think partying is the answer to youth.

    • Christina says:

      Eliza, exactly. She needs years of therapy and to get off of social media. She also needs to think of her teenage sons. They are the ones that matter. What we think of her shouldn’t matter, but she doesn’t want a 9-to-5 job. She wants the money and attention that come with a train wreck life for reality TV money. That’s a choice. And she’s a binge alcoholic. Only she can choose to change it. Lots of women divorce in and out of the public eye. These are choices. She needed to bring attention to the video so that she can get more clicks, but my opinion is that she should value her mental health and that of her boys over it.

  13. Mia says:

    I can’t imagine being in the public eye and having cameras filming. Everyone is a paparazzi these days. Hope she gets the help she needs and might be best to stay of social media.

  14. Adrien says:

    The doctors who keep injecting her with fillers and botox should have their medical license removed. They are exploiting people who suffer from BDD. Experienced aestheticians or nurses perform these procedures too. I don’t know if they are allowed but I know people who had their botox and fillers done by their facialists because doctors turn them away.

  15. LORENA says:

    I just watched the video, jesus christ what did she do to her face??!?!?! She used to have a pretty, unique face! omg, get help Brandi! Stop the fillers and get real help

  16. lucy2 says:

    Isn’t her brand basically “Tipsy Celebrity”? Her book titles are about drinking.
    It sounds like things have gotten out of hand though, so I hope she gets some help (and stays away from the plastic surgeons office).

  17. Littlefishmom says:

    I didn’t even know that was her in those photos. She looks really really different? Did she get a nose job? I feel for her. It’s not easy having depression issues and using alcohol to keep it at bay. It’s a vicious cycle. I don’t think she is a bad person. We’ve all been through break ups and it’s devastating, to have it play out in public has to be horrible, especially when you also have to small children. I’ve always given her a pass. Her and and that person he married deserve each other, both garbage and haven’t had a thing work for them since the inception. Karma.

  18. Audrey says:

    This is what you get when your priorities are screwed up. Chasing fame, beauty, everlasting youth…how about just working on being comfortable in your own un-botoxed skin???

  19. Isabelle says:

    Excuses and like most addicts she lies to cover it. Her body isn’t the way it is because of her age as some of women end up later in life with better bodies than they had in their 20s. Her body shape is no doubt the result of Alcohol as overuse of Alcohol tends to store fat in the belly area for men and women. In fact you can end up with thin arms legs and a heavy middle area as your body stores fat differently as an alcoholic.

  20. Lucia says:

    Brandi Glanville’s problem isn’t depression, it’s her drinking that’s a problem. I won’t have much to say about her until she decides to get help and that’s me being kind. I hope she gets the help she needs before it destroys her relationship with her sons.

  21. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I don’t have any sympathy for her. She can be very mean and hostile when she wants to be so I’m not all in for the pity party she is throwing herself.

  22. Texas says:

    L. A. Is a different world. Fillers are the norm and you think that is what you are supposed to look like. Plastic surgery is like going to the dentist or the hair dresser!

    She breaks my heart though. Her own worst enemy. But it is hard to be the one left behind. I don’t think she ever got over the loss of her “family”.

    She can’t compete with the money. Rhymes actively tried to steal her kids. She is the kind of person who is not happy until she destroys her competition.

  23. I really, really feel for her. LA/Hollywood — that whole thing — is on another planet. The faker you are the more real you fit in there. I worked on both coasts for a while as an HR Consultant for Hedge Funds specifically. This addiction — and it is an addiction — to be perfect, to constantly compare yourself and find flaws with yourself is overwhelming prevalent there. Therefore, I understand why she did all the fillers, dated all the bad boys, and medicates legally and self medicates improperly with alcohol.

    IMO I believe she needs to get out of LA/Hollywood that whole scene and settle down somewhere modestly, find yourself first, face your demons and once you can be by yourself and be happy then let yourself be open to finding someone new. Someone that is the complete opposite of what you are always attracted to. Looks should not be a major factor; that’s what got her into trouble in the first place. Beauty Fades — you can throw as much retinol, botox or Juvederm or meaningful beauty or your own blood or leeches whatever the new craze is. Nothing is guaranteed in this lifetime but aging and death. Taxes do not matter anymore just ask Trump.

  24. Ann says:

    ” I’m not 25 my body isn’t perfect and I got wasted i’m sure it’s happened to plenty of you” Um…. no. Just no. I have what I call “fat and ugly” days where I’m feeling super unattractive. I don’t cope with those days by going out and getting wasted in public.

  25. Kristen says:

    Even if Brandi needs to make changes, it’s not always easy to make necessary changes because of mental health, substance abuse challenges and more.

    Her EX threw her away like a piece of trash and it’s hard to move on when your kids look just like him.

    Plus she was still in love with him.

    Plus it’s not easy to find a good man.

    She’s not perfect, but no one is and I’m just sending a lot of positive energy that she gets the support she needs. She is really broken-hearted. LIfe can be brutal.

    Universe: Please send Brandi a stable, loving partner or something better.

  26. Grant says:

    It’s not even the botox/dysport, it’s the lips. She’s getting WAY too much Juvederm, almost to the point where it looks like she hit a nerve and can’t move half of her mouth.

    • wildflower says:

      When I saw the video I thought she looked like someone who has had a stroke when she was speaking. It is enough to scare me away from any fillers, ever. Do they dissolve, go away? I have never seen her show as it just doesn’t seem interesting to me, but somehow I have a soft spot for her because of the Eddie/LeAnn situation and think that had to be awful to try to get through privately and publicly. I hope she gets help because she seems to be in a lot of pain and I don’t know how anyone can rejoice in that, it’s just sad. I feel like she is probably a nice person under it all and wish her the best.

  27. Veronica says:

    Honestly, I’ve been watching the Real Housewives series she’s on, and I’ve been…really surprised to see what she’s actually like? I thought she’d be way nastier given the bad reputation she gets in media, but I honestly think she’s one of the more likeable castmates. Blunt and sometimes rude, yes, but otherwise…it seems more often like she’s the victim of ostracism than the actual perpetrator. Kinda sad for her, really.

  28. Jaded says:

    I got thrown away by several exes and I seem to have survived without getting sh*t-faced drunk in public and whining to everyone who’ll listen to me. You get over it and get on with it and now I have a “stable” partner. Look at the wife of one of Miranda Lambert’s exes (can’t remember her name). She must have gone through hell when her husband dumped her for Miranda but she was quiet, composed and dignified throughout. Many others have reacted similarly to being dumped, not turning the whole thing into a social-media free-for-all and justifying their outrageous public behaviour on it.

    She needs therapy, not more plastic surgery and certainly has to keep off the booze. She has two young boys to raise.

    • wildflower says:

      Good for you that you don’t seem to have a substance abuse issue, but I would guess that is what is going on with Brandi. We’re all different in how we deal with things and while I haven’t ever dealt with my down times in life this way, either, I have compassion for this woman because she looks out of control. She seems to need help and it is sad.

    Sorry, I think I’ll save ALL my sympathies for her children who have to face whatever they face at school when she parades around in public. Can you imagine the crap they get when she poses in see-thru crap and all the pictures of her weaving around. Doesn’t help having the dad and stepmother they have either. They have to live with this everyday and it’s shaping their middle school and high school years which are bad enough. When you live with the shame and humiliation of a parent that behaves like this in public, the memories are with you forever. That’s not even touching what happens for her boys when the cameras aren’t rolling.

    Raised by a mother who abused prescription pain pills (hey, it was okay ’cause they were from dr.) and never once took responsibility for her slurred words, erratic behavior so a big nope from me. Some of her trainwreck crap is done while sober and has been going on for years. Instead of making an apology on camera, what a surprise, maybe call a therapist instead.

      Your post made me think about her video from the sons’ perspectives. Seeing their mother so distraught over a decade-old divorce and child custody would likely be distressing for THEM.

      Life will definitely knock you around, but it’s up to each person to decide whether to get up and keep going. Hard as it can be, we all have to make peace with what we cannot change. Drinking and medicating is only going to add to her problems, and drain her finances.

    Brandi being a messy drunk has been going on for way too long. This is clearly a substance abuse problem.

    I have a soft spot for Brandi because she was so hurt by Eddi Cibrian and crazy Leann but thats not an excuse anymore, that happened a really long time ago. She needs to address her drinking problems and get to the root of her unhappiness and what is driving her to get so drunk.

      Your comment reminds me of something I heard recently in group therapy. Someone was talking about the parable of “the horse and the river” (??) and I started laughing at the mental image: “Story of my life! I’m just standing in the river yelling and shaking my fist at a horse that is long gone!”

      You’re allowed to yell and stamp your feet for a while but, at some point, it’s time to pick yourself up out of the river and dry out.

    • Krissy says:

      I agree!! She needs to clean herself up. This has gone too far. She says she’s over the divorce, yet still blames Eddie and her friends for having “perfect husbands” for her behavior. I have always been team Brandi!! But I can’t sit here and go along with them I i g of alcohol and her meds. It’s dangerous!! She has to grow up

    There are SO many times she has been shown on film DRUNK and it hasn’t “registered” with her to clean up her act and get therapy, stop drinking as alcohol is a depressant… SMH

  32. TheMummy says:

    Just to clarify, all anti-depressants are NOT MAOI inhibitors. In fact, most aren’t. Granted, she should probably not be drinking like that on any anti-depressant (although a glass or two is perfectly safe…maybe not optimal when switching meds, but it isn’t dangerous..but she seems unable to stick to a glass or two), but I just wanted to point out that what she is taking is probably not an MAOI inhibitor.

  33. TheMummy says:

    I just watched that insta vid she posted. She seems so sad (although it is a little hard to tell since her face is unrecognizable and doesn’t move)…. I’m sad on her behalf because she seems really lonely and unhappy. I am positive that has everything to do with why she butchered and froze her face. I would not have recognized her if her name was not on this post. So sad.

    I feel for her. And then, on her 12-year-old son’s birthday, a few hours after Brandi tweeted a photo of her with her son as a toddler, LeAnn posts a similar picture of LeAnn with the same son when he was a toddler. LeAnn sickens me. She takes sick, sadistic pleasure in torturing Brandi, and there will be a special place in hell for LeAnn someday.

    • Sonia says:

      oh, I think Leann is living in her own hell every day. She is just as miserable as Brandi is. She’s just not as messy.

    • joanne says:

      the picture leann posted with Jake was from her wedding to eddie. leann is a nasty snake always.
      i feel bad for Brandi, she has issues and i wish she would help herself. she’s clearly distressed and very unhappy.
      as for those treating the tampon string night as her being drunk and sloppy, yes she was. her tampon string hanging out was not a moral lapse, it’s because she was having her period while wearing clothing that got disheveled. i cringed for her when that happened but it had nothing to do with her being drunk. most women have had accidents while having their period.
      i really hope Brandi finds something that makes her happy.

    I liked her on RHBH despite the super hot mess she sometimes appears. Not fat shaming, but I would have thought twice (maybe 8 times) about wearing those shorts. Not at all flattering on those of us who’ve had a couple kids and a tad long in the tooth. Poor girl has got her some issues.

  36. Rebekah says:

    She’s probably not on an MAOI, they’re not nearly as common as SSRIs, which don’t have the same contraindications for alcohol.

    That said, alcohol is kind of terrible for depressives, which is ironic since that’s usually front-line for self-medication, but we don’t always make the best choices for ourselves, especially when we’re hurting.

    How many times has she been caught drunk now? Sounds like she needs rehab/ AA.
