Bethenny and Brandi chat about TV friendships versus "real" friendships. They agree that many of their friendships from the Housewives shows are solely based on the show itself.
Bethenny: These are friendships that are forged, they are real, but it's because you are on television. Brandi: In other words you probably never would have met them before or hung out with them before. Bethenny: Lisa Vanderpump would never be friends with you unless you met on television.
Perhaps things are turning around in the romance department for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville.The wild and brash reality star gets most of the material for her books from her hilariously sad love life, but apparently that could be changing.
While Brandi's been seen out and about with a new beau, her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his former mistress/current wife LeAnn Rimes are following in Brandi's footsteps and prepping for their own reality show creatively titled "LeAnn & Eddie." This is going to be good, y'all. So good! LeAnn's twitter handle may as well be "I'm THE BEST bonus mom EVER" due to the sheer volume of photos she posts of her step-sons on the social media site, but will we get a chance to see her stellar parenting skills on the small screen?
Let's start with Brandi's new boyfriend, shall we?
Even though the couple were reportedly shopping around a sitcom loosely based on their life, VH1 instead agreed to give them a reality show. You know we won't be able to resist this snarky bit of comedic, vomit-inducing gold waiting to happen.
Well, after a certain site claimed that the levels of obnoxiousness and awkwardness were off the charts when the exes found themselves dining at the same Malibu restaurant, Brandi is coming forward to set the record straight.
While these three have small truces every once in a while for the sake of Brandi and Eddie's two sons (also known as LeAnn's "bonus boys"), there is always an undercurrent of passive aggressiveness that knows no bounds…especially in the land of social media. With so much back-and-forth in the Twitterverse, can you imagine what happens when they happen to be together in person?
You can always count on Brandi Glanville to bring the LOLs to reality drama. She bounced back from a very public divorce with ex Eddie Cibrian after he cheated on her with former country star LeAnn Rimes. When Eddie and LeAnn wed, Brandi allowed herself to indulge in some petty behavior and public feuding, but now she just lets her unfiltered mouth and brash humor fight her battles for her.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star recently donated $500 to Kim Smiley, the teacher who is being sued by LeAnn for cyber-bullying her on Twitter and subsequently recording a phone call with the singer–after LeAnn called her to discuss proper fan Twitter etiquette. The money goes towards the defense of the lawsuit. That's quite a way to get back at the woman who touts herself a fertile bonus mom to whatever media outlet will listen!
My friends and I like to play a game we call Lifetime Movie. No, we're not planning on rocking back and forth in a shower crying about a relationship gone sour; instead, we try to figure out which star would play us in a movie about our life. It's fun, and I recommend it to anyone who's bored!
In the movie of my life, I'd hope that Ellen DeGeneres could take time out of her busy schedule to play me, but I'd understand if she had other obligations. However, I'm happy to learn that my friends and I aren't the only ones who like to think of our lives as a watch-worthy show. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville also likes to imagine her life played out on the screen.
