This week’s guest on Brandi Glanville’s podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, was someone she had quite a bit in common with: Dean McDermott’s ex-wife, Mary Jo Eustace. Brandi and Mary Jo both had actor husbands who went off to film Lifetime movies with semi-famous women and wound up cheating and “falling in love” with said co-stars.
On the podcast, the women get along well and connect over all of the similarities in their bizarre situations. Brandi admits that it’s been six years since it happened but that it’s still hard in some respects.
Geraldo Rivera was stuck smack-dab in the middle of Kenya Moore and Vivica A. Fox‘s showdown and had a front row seat to the eponymous Celebrity Apprentice “Phonegate.” As a result, Geraldo declares Kenya “guilty!”
As usual, Geraldo has a lot to say, and it’s far more fun to read it in Geraldo’s voice. Am I the only one who naturally does that? Geraldo emphatically believes Kenya is the culprit behind thieving Vivica’s phone and even charges that Kenya should take a lie detector test to exonerate herself!
“There are ambitious divas in the news business, but in my experience we don’t steal each other’s microphones to prevent our rivals from broadcasting. Something like that happened last night on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’,” Mr. Mustache begins.
Vivica was out at Cipriani for dinner last night after receiving a Femmy 2015 award and she was firm with TMZ when they asked about Kenya’s denial of phonegate.
Vivica sniped at the videographer when he asks about Kenya’s phone swiping, “You ask me that like you doubt it, of course she stole it. I have absolutely no doubt that Kenya stole my phone. Kenya knew about the Tweets, Kenya knew my phone was missing, Kenya stole my phone. Why lie?”
Since Brandi Glanville, Ian Ziering, Kenya Moore and Johnny Damon were in NYC to do interviews on the Today show yesterday morning, Donald Trump threw them a “bloodbath” Celebrity Apprentice party at Trump Tower last night. Is it weird to throw a party for the four people you kicked to the curb? Especially when two of the fired contestants can hardly stand to be in the same room?
At the event last night Kenyaspoke to E! news about the showdown with Vivica A. Fox, “If you know Vivica, you know that’s who she really is. I think she’s proud of it, so it’s not like I’m saying something that isn’t the truth. She really prides herself on being ghetto. You heard her say she’s ghetto fabulous. I think in her generation, it was cool to say those types of things or brag about somebody being physically attacked like they deserved it, it’s embarrassing behavior.” She hopes young viewers of the show know that’s not the way to behave. She also says what we saw on TV was mild and tame. Kenya says “I was just afraid she was going to try to fight someone. I’ve seen her blow up at Kate, just seen her display some really intensive anger.”

In the first challenge the teams create a photobomb campaign of King’s Hawaiian bread in NYC. Geraldo Rivera is momentarily silent, still trapped in the hyper-alert mindset of Vivica and Kenya Moore‘s war. He compares working with those two to being in Afghanistan. I’ve never been to Afghanistan but after the many-years reign of terror Krayonce has inflicted upon me, I can attest to needing therapy. Naturally Kenya announces herself project manager.
On the other team Johnny Damon rises to the occasion. Which, thanks to Brandi Glanville‘s dirty mind, also becomes their slogan. Hey – someone had to stop Ian Ziering from composing a 45-minute sermon of 1984’s best marketing catchphrases. He has watched a few episodes of Mad Men, which makes him an expert.
This morning all four fired contestants, Kenya Moore, Brandi Glanville, Ian Ziering and Johnny Damon, sat down to chat with the Today show about their experiences on the show and the money they raised for charity.
Kenya and Ian do a separate interview and Savannah Guthrie says they have Brandi over across the studio because things are so bad between the two. Kenya says “oh that’s not true. I’ve seen Brandi a half a dozen times and I always speak, it’s not personal.” She says that in the beginning they clashed, but “I came to win money for my charity, which was the Detroit Public Schools Foundation, and I did that and that’s all I was really was concerned about.”
