You may not agree, but I think Brandi Glanville is the spice so needed for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's brash, she's offensive, she's everything her counterparts want to be but pretend that they're not. You add in the fact that Brandi's ex-husband Eddie Cibrian couldn't keep it in his pants, and she proceeds to run into his former mistresses throughout 90210, and you've got a great reality recipe for drama.
I know y'all recall the SUR party last season (you know, the one Cedric Martinez tried to crash, not to be confused with this season's Villa Blanca party when Adrienne Maloof sent that passive aggressive jungle arrangement to Lisa Vanderpump) when Brandi ran smack dab into SUR waitress Scheana Marie who had once gotten to know Eddie really well…if you catch my drift.
Fast forward to Scheana starring in Bravo's new Vanderfabulous spin-off Vanderpump Rules, and she's all over the media yet again for that unfortunate run in with Brandi. Of course, Brandi handled the situation with as much class as Brandi can…she did a better job than I would have expected. From previews, we know that the women will come face-to-face yet again (thanks producers!) to finally say their peace, and now media outlets are revisiting that original awkward meeting as Bravo hypes its newest reality show.

Wet Paint revives an interview with Scheana about the uncomfortable SUR party and how badly Scheane felt (cry me a river) when she learned her precious boyfriend Eddie was married with two children. Take note, LeAnn Rimes…you weren't his only extramarital conquest! Read all about Scheana blaming her mistake on youth and expressing her remorse below!
What was it like seeing Brandi at the SUR party?
Had I known she was going to be there, I wouldn’t have worked that night. But I was happy to leave. I feel bad enough about what happened — I didn’t want to make things worse.
You admit to dating Eddie. But the whole time you were seeing him, he never told you he was married?
No. And he never wore a ring. I was only 21 at the time — I was naïve and trusting. I met this guy who was cute and seemed great and it never occurred to me he wasn’t who he said he was.
How did you eventually discover the truth?
You have to remember, this is before Googling people was regular thing. So I didn’t do a search for him online or IMDB him. We spent a lot of time together. He met a lot of people in my life, my family and my friends.
Do you have regrets?
Of course. I would never knowingly get involved with a married man. If I could go back in time, I would have handled things very differently. But again, I was 21 and very naïve. He never wore a ring and I never thought to question it.
What are your thoughts on Brandi?
She looks like she’s moved on and I’m very happy for her. I feel horrible about my role in what happened. No one deserves to get cheated on.
What about you? Have you moved on?
I have a great boyfriend who makes me really happy. He’s wonderful. And I double-checked…he really WAS single when we met!
Well, it's good that she double-checked this go-round, right? I honestly think that Brandi's beef is with Eddie, and she probably doesn't place too much blame on the innocent, young
actress/singer wannabe waitress. Undoubtedly, it will be interesting to see how the duo's sit-down goes later in this season!
And speaking of messed up marriages, no one know the deal better than Camille Grammer. While a spot on RHOBH was her "parting gift" from former husband Kelsey Grammer before he left her for another woman, she's downgraded her role this season to that of a friend of the housewives so as not to have to show her children. However, just because both Kelsey and Camille have moved on doesn't mean that their pending real estate issues aren't ongoing.
The former couple has had their Beverly Hills mansion on the market for ages with no bites, but now that Kelsey's show Boss has been canceled, he wants to move into it with his wife and new baby. Kelsey believes it will be easier to rent his current home for $30,000 a month. Camille has balked at this proposal, given that she pays half the mortgage and expenses, which, according to TMZ, are over $48,000 a month total.
Kelsey reminds Camille that he still foots half the bill for her Malibu estate, paying half of the total $15,000 a month for the home plus over $40,000 in monthly support. If you subtract the massive support (which is mostly for Camille and Kelsey's kids), Camille is paying much more for Kelsey to move into the Beverly Hills mansion than he's paying to help with Malibu. Who am I kidding? Throwing around these monthly financials is making my head spin…I'd take $40,000 a year in some sort of support…even if it's just pity support. :)
So far, the judge has denied Camille's request to bar Kelsey and his new family from the home, but a hearing has been set on the issue for next month. Oh rich people problems…you never cease to amaze me!
