Welcome to a recap ofBrandi Glanville‘sbrief and storied history on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Emerging from the shadows of the underdog to the unlikely fan-favorite she quickly collapsed into one of the most reviled Housewives in history.
Boozdi-Brandi’s time on RHOBH spans incredible highs and incredible lows, but is dominated by her willingness to do anything in the name of drama. Brandi recently accused Bravo of encouraging her to be controversial to save the show from doldrums, but I’d say ratings disagree with that tactic.
Below, we recap Brandi’s sordid tale from the Housewife who probably never should have been, to the Housewife who wasn’t.
“So Carole gave me the recap that the Countess is back. I respectfully disagree. The old ‘uncool’ countess doesn’t say, ‘Be cool’ when naked men are throughout the house,” the veteran Real Housewives Of New York star cites. “Luann’s only issue was that she felt her friends were ratting her out trying to catch her doing something. Her issue wasn’t that she was trying to hide whatever took place for the eight hours prior to that moment. There is an important distinction.”
The network is moving forward with plans to restructure the show, which was recently renewed for a 15th season before Donald’s political aspirations severed his relationship with the network. NBC is hoping to find a replacement business mogul host (or hostess) who also has celebrity prowess.
The network was reportedly hoping that viewer fascination with the Duggar brood and the popularity of eldest girls Jana, Jill and Jessa was enough to salvage the already controversial show, but the fallout from the discovery that Josh molested his sisters and other girls as a teen refused to die-down. In fact it seemed to be exacerbated by Josh’s wife Anna’s fourth pregnancy and the Duggar family’s refusal to really confront the situation honestly or to treat their daughters as victims.
Today the network finally announced that the Duggars would no longer be returning to TV. This morning a network representative informed the Associated Press that the Duggars “will no longer appear on the air.”
Lots of exciting happenings over at Vanderpump Rules, which was just officially renewed for its fourth season! Filming has been underway for a while now, but they got the official re-up notice from Bravo and now it’s full-speed ahead.
According to a new report Heather Thomson is done being a Housewife. Holla! Heather has been having a rough season on Real Housewives Of New York; her storyline has been dominated by petty feuds and background drama, and last night was essentially the end of her friendship with Luann de Lesseps.
It comes as no surprise that Heather may be over playing the Bravo game and won’t be re-singing a contract next season. A source close to Heather reveals she is leaving the show after three seasons to focus on family, REAL friends (instead of reality TV ones) and expanding her YummieTummie empire.
