The Real Housewives of Beverly Hill's Brandi Glanville was in New York City over the weekend for 'promotional appearances' — also known as working on Celebrity Apprentice — when her son, with LeAnn's current husband Eddie Cibrian — had to be rushed to the hospital for an undisclosed illness. Leave it to the always classy LeAnn Rimes to respond to the news that her stepson is in the hospital by tweeting her feelings about the situation to her hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers.
I've long believed the so-called copycat feuding between Brandi Glanville and LeAnn Rimes was in part a publicity stunt. Initially I'm sure it was true, but as they both got more and more attention for the antics they seemed to escalate.
Last week Brandi tweeted a photo of some Alexander McQueen shoes she is dying to own. I guess since she iced out her two richie-rich BFF's Lisa Vanderpump and Yolanda Foster, she'll have to buy the uber expensive shoes herself. Good thing she's a two-time NY Times best seller! How?
Bravo has created its fair share of monsters, no doubt about it. However, what's a gal to do when it creates two monsters, and those monsters start feuding very publicly about feminine hygiene? With whom do you side? It's a conundrum, I tell you!
I guess if we have to live in a world where attention seekers are rewarded for bad behavior and outrageous shenanigans, I may as well be entertained by them, right? And I definitely find Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Brandi Glanville to be, um, entertaining.
While Brandi's certainly not the reality star I'd want to hang out with on a regular basis (but should Theresa Caputo, Curtis Stone, orLisa Vanderpump feel so inclined…call me!), she is crass and sassy which are two of the characteristics I'm drawn to in friends. She isn't afraid to let it all hang out (literally…how could you forget this?) in the Twitterverse, her best-selling book, and now her online podcast aptly titled Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. Bravo breaks down her premiere episode where she shares several revelations ranging from taking a copycat Kim Kardashianbooty-bearing selfie to having high cholesterol from her diet.
You can't see me, but I am laughing so hard at this story. It is amazing on oh so many wonderful levels, and it involves two ladies who eat, sleep, and breathe drama (and Twitter). What could be better?
You want to sleep with Brandi's husband? Well, she'll just befriend yours and let the whole world know about it. What's more deserving of sympathy than one duped spouse? You guessed it! Two duped spouses.
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.
