We’re all still reeling from that slap heard ’round Holland on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Amster-damn straight no one should ever lay a finger on the fabulous Lisa Vanderpump, even if it was supposed to be a joke! Can I be honest for just a moment though? While it was stupid and tacky and rude and childish, had it been anyone other than Brandi Glanville, everyone would probably find it funny. I’m no Brandi fan, but it seems like if you’re talking and joking about slapping each other, there is potential for a legen–wait for it–dary round of Slapsgiving. Sure, you could argue that no one besides Brandi would ever behave in that manner…and you’d be right. That said, Kyle Richards barely mentions it her recap of this week’s episode because she’s confused as to how Lisa Rinna and sister Kim Richards went from screaming and glass shattering to shopping buddies in the blink of an eye.
Kyle begins, “We pick up in Amsterdam where we left off last week. I had decided to just stay clear of Brandi, because we had enough problems so far and I knew the possibilities that awaited me if I were to continue engaging with her. The next day I went to visit Yolanda [Foster] in her room. While I appreciated her wanting me to fix things with Kim, it just is not that simple. It’s difficult to get advice from someone who really doesn’t have the complete story. Frankly, I wanted to try to enjoy my time in beautiful Amsterdam and I knew that trying to fix things on this trip was impossible. This ‘fight’ isn’t an isolated incident. There is way too much baggage to explain to someone that is not family. I think it’s hard for someone like Yolanda to understand not just wanting to ‘patch’ things up, because she and her brother have a fun, easy going relationship. They are very fortunate. That doesn’t mean Kim and I don’t love each other. I love my sister very much and wish things were different. Unfortunately, sometimes you have to take a step back.”
Brandi Glanville‘s new “business partner” Leeza Gibbons was a guest on her podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. The Celebrity Apprentice castmates dished on the show, their friendship, and how Brandi’s portrayal in the media – no thanks to Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills – is different than who she is in real life. Leeza played Brandi’s therapist for much of the show, and Brandi eventually confessed her behavior at the RHOBH reunion was horrible.
Leeza agreed to be “semi-filtered” instead of “unfiltered,” which was a semi-shame because Brandi was on her best behavior and kept her trash-talking to a minimum, in lieu of fawning all over Leeza.
Brandi blows a ton of smoke upthe Celebrity Apprentice winner‘s butt, and the favor is returned by Leeza. Unfortunately. “You are the biggest surprise in my life,” gushes NuLisa, “Because you encourage me to drop the parts of me that are a little uptight. The parts of me that protect; the parts of me that need protecting.” Brandi repays the compliment by calling Leeza “clenched,” then laughs uproariously. She later teases Leeza about posing for Playboy. “Let’s get you naked!” she jokes.
