Brandi Glanville appeared on Howard Stern yesterday where she didn't hesitate to reveal the dirty secrets of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! Most exciting, Brandi revealed just how much the ladies earn to disgrace themselves on television!
Brandi told the radio host that on her first season as a 'Friend of the Housewives' she earned a paltry $18k. That's barely enough to cover spray tans and manicures!
Lucky for her, Brandi says since all the other ladies hated her and wanted her off the show, Bravo hired her full-time! "They just didn't want me there!" Brandi admitted. "They were like, 'Oh, she doesn't fit in. She's out.' " Now as a full-time cast member Brandi says she earns on the low-end of the totem pole raking in $136,000.

Among rumors that Housewives like NeNe Leakes and Teresa Giudice are earning as much as $1M and $600,000 per season this is remarkably low. Brandi also dished that the other ladies make $250,000 per season, but since none of them allegedly need the money it's just extra for wine and lip gloss.
"I'm not supposed to tell anyone this, but I'm just telling you," Brandi joked. And next season she hopes to be earning as much as the big girls! "I want what they're getting, because I feel like I work hard." Brandi confirmed that contracts have not been extended for the next season and filming will begin in April.
As for the Adrienne Maloof nonsense, Brandi also confirms that she sent litigious letters to Bravo and producers threatening to sue if they did not remove the word "surrogate" from the show, hence the bleep-out.
Moving on, in the wake of Monday's tumultuous episode Brandi got sassy on her Bravo blog and gave her recollection of the events. Shockingly, she defends Taylor Armstrong's parenting faux pas; you know forgetting where she stashed her six-year-old so she could jet off and carry on her affair with John Bluher!
"Yes, Taylor is a mess drinking too much and in need of serious support. Taylor has been through a lot and is clearly and emotional roller coaster and making rash decisions," Brandi concedes. "When a anyone goes through a hard time in life (divorce, deaths, etc.), it's their friends and family they should be able to lean on and count on for support."
"I'm just saying sometimes we need to lean on people. Also I don't think we are getting the full story here. . . ," Brandi admits. "Also we all knew exactly who Taylor was dating at the time because it was all over the press. I don't know why but I feel like their is more to this scenario then we all know."
"Regardless it's definitely not party chatter or mean girl gossip. Why on earth is this a conversation being had with Adrienne, Faye [Resnick], and Marisa [Zanuck] — who said herself she doesn't even know Taylor?"
"I just feel like some of these women get off when others — even their BFs and those less fortunate than themselves — fail. I mean would you rather have Kennedy with tipsy Taylor right now or having fun with Portia?" Good points, Ms. Glanville!
"Plain and simple there was a threat of lawsuit, which required me to hire a lawyer to defend myself," Brandi states. A fact that has been confirmed by Adrienne. "I printed out all the email exchanges and tweets between Bernie [Guzman], myself and our lawyers and even brought copies of my bills."
"During our conversation they admit to hiring a lawyer to deal with me because they want to control what comes out of my mouth," Brandi adds. "I show Paul some of the Facebook, email, and tweets that Bernie put out to the public about me and my children and he says he will fire Bernie."
Except instead Adrienne "fired" Paul, and Bernie turned his malicious behavior towards Paul, and now Paul is SUING Bernie for extortion and slander!
Oh my, what tangled webs we weave – more tangled than Adrienne's cheap weave in fact!
