While some people (ahem… Splits Richards) have a dubious definition of the word "friendship" it seems Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump have a legit relationship that goes beyond a storyline and some camera time. At least I hope they do!
After Lisa attempted to defend Brandi during Faye Resnick's dinner party attack on this week's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she is also speaking out to defend her friend in the press over how she has handled ex-husband Eddie Cibrian's very public affairs.
"There's so much that people don't know, and I wish that you saw more of Brandi as a mother – but she is not allowed to use her children [in the show], which is a shame because that is another whole side of her personality that we don't see, she is a lovely mother and I have spent a lot of time around her with her boys," Lisa shares.
Brandi Glanville has had a difficult few months. Around Thanksgiving she was hospitalized for an infection in her breast where a lump was discovered. Although the tumor is benign, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hill star recently revealed she will undergo surgery to remove it.
"I am having surgery this week and am relieved it’s going to be over with,” the 40-year-old tells In Touch Weekly. "It's a blessing the tumor is non-cancerous.”
“I'm anxious about the recovery but have great friends who will be playing nurse," Brandi adds “I'm ready to get it over with and feel better."
Brandi was ill for months before finally realizing what was wrong. In addition she is dealing with stress surrounding her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his new wife LeAnn Rimes. I'm sure you're all aware that last night LeAnn did a disastrous tell-all sit down with Giuliana Rancic in which she defended her affair and expected sympathy from the public for her actions.
What started with a series of passive aggressive tweets and a scathing article in which Brandi accused LeAnn of having a severe eating disorder and being an unfit parent has resulted in an all-out war. Brandi also claimed Eddie refuses to speak to her and is impossible to get in touch with, which is why she has resorted to twitter and the media.
Eddie recently took to RadarOnline to leak an email he sent to Brandi proving he does actually communicate with her – albeit unpeaceably.
In his email Eddie writes:
"I know your life exists solely for the purpose of living and creating drama. It's a sad way to live. It's so obvious that you have to constantly mention my wife so people will care what comes out of your mouth"
So wait… you mean to tell me LeAnn Rimes isn't naturally twiggy? Apparently not! The former singer is allegedly taking laxatives to lose weight and the pooper pills fell into the wrong little hands making her step-son extremely ill! Yikes – and very scary.
Brandi Glanville is speaking out about dangerous incidents happening when her sons are in the care of her ex-husband and his current wife. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is expressing concern about whether or not LeAnn is fit to be a caregiver for her two sons!
"I, unfortunately, don't find her to be stable and I don't want her around my kids when Eddie [Cibrian]'s not there — or at least the nanny, his parents, someone," Brandireveals to Us Weekly. "Mason, my eldest, ate some of Le's candies and got extremely ill. And Le's candies are laxatives. It was a big f–king deal for me, and I lost my mind." Rightfully so!!!

I feel like there is a giant math equation regarding how much gossip we hear about the show in proportion to the ratio of time a housewives franchise has been on the air divided by the amount of certified crazies in the cast and then taken to the third power of the square root of how many on-air divorces occur multiplied by the number of husbands we think could potentially be cheating. It's like E=MC² up in here!
Given all of those mathematical conundrums, it only makes sense we'd be hearing a lot the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills at the moment. We've got the crazies, we've got the divorces, and I have some suspicions about some of those husbands! First up, we've got Brandi Glanville engaging in yet another Twitter war with home wrecker (don't sue me!) LeAnn Rimes and more news on the Adrienne Maloof front.
You may not agree, but I think Brandi Glanville is the spice so needed for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She's brash, she's offensive, she's everything her counterparts want to be but pretend that they're not. You add in the fact that Brandi's ex-husband Eddie Cibrian couldn't keep it in his pants, and she proceeds to run into his former mistresses throughout 90210, and you've got a great reality recipe for drama.
I know y'all recall the SUR party last season (you know, the one Cedric Martinez tried to crash, not to be confused with this season's Villa Blanca party when Adrienne Maloof sent that passive aggressive jungle arrangement to Lisa Vanderpump) when Brandi ran smack dab into SUR waitress Scheana Marie who had once gotten to know Eddie really well…if you catch my drift.
Fast forward to Scheana starring in Bravo's new Vanderfabulous spin-off Vanderpump Rules, and she's all over the media yet again for that unfortunate run in with Brandi. Of course, Brandi handled the situation with as much class as Brandi can…she did a better job than I would have expected. From previews, we know that the women will come face-to-face yet again (thanks producers!) to finally say their peace, and now media outlets are revisiting that original awkward meeting as Bravo hypes its newest reality show.
Can I get a slow clap for Shaunie O'Neal? She said she was going to clean up the violence and drama on Basketball Wives, and by God, she's going to deliver. Oh wait. Nevermind. Instead, Ms. Nostrils O'Neal fired the calm ladies and kept her violent, bullying friends for the fifth season. They say they want to redeem themselves. I think Kenya Bell needs to duck!
That's right, folks! Both wine bottle tossing, table jumping Evelyn Lozada and purse snatching, in-your-face screaming Tami Roman will be back for another round. Apparently, they've "grown" in light of recent circumstances and deserve a fifth second chance. Tami suffered a mild heart attack, so she has a new lease on life, while Evelyn had a short-lived marriage that ended in a head butt from Chad Johnson, so surely she's learned that violence isn't the answer. Right? Hello? Anyone believe that?
The scariest part of the ordeal is that doctors still don't know what is wrong with Brandi. After suffering from chest pains and finding a benign lump under her arm, there is still no diagnosis for the brash mother of two. While the hospital trip doesn't seem to be slowing Brandi down–she's still going to be on Watch What Happens Live tonight–it still has to be unnerving to have such a health scare.
