Bravo’s newest show Tour Group premiered this week and so far it’s good. A little bit of a drama mixed with a whole lot of travel porn! One of the show’s stars, former model Michelle Harvey, is opening up about her link to other Bravo reality stars. In an interview with AfterBuzz, she spills tea on how she was almost cast on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and shares that Brandi Glanville USED to be her friend.
Michelle reveals that she filmed a pilot for a reality show revolving around former models (but never got picked up) that also starred Brandi Glanville and Kristen Taekmanand a few others.
“We would love to have the drama and emotion that Taylor Armstrong would bring to the show and counter that with the lovability that Regis Philbin has given audiences for decades,” a source from the show reveals. “ABC has a wonderful relationship with Regis from his Who Wants To Be A Millionaire days. Plus, who wouldn’t want to see what Taylor would bring to the dance floor each week?” Uhh is that a trick question???
Safe to assume Taylor’s answer would be YES if DWTS came a-knocking!
Moving on toBrandi Glanville, who continues to enjoy a ton of press from her quickie Las Vegas wedding this weekend. Brandi tied with knot with MMA manager Darin Harvey on New Year’s Eve only to announce on her Twitter page the next day that she planned to annul the publicity stunt wedding.
Fast forward to today and Darin’s ex-wife Michelle Harvey is now revealing Brandi betrayed her. The reason? According to Michelle, Brandi used to be her BFF!
“She was my best friend until she started an affair w my ex hus Darin behind my back!!!! All our sons are paying the price” posted Michelle on her Twitter account Tuesday afternoon.
“I was BG BFF for 12 yrs b4 betrayed by her n my ex Darin!” continued Michelle. “Brandi doesn’t care about me or my son… But Darin should!!!!”
While Brandi has stated this was simply a drunken spontaneous decision, Michelle states it was all planned for publicity! “Darin told me they did it for the publicity!!! Pathetic fame wh*res. All 3 kids are devastated,” she wrote. “They are both back peddling…Darin admitted to me it was her idea for publicity.”
Brandi immediately fired back at Michelle tweeting: “@modellharveym You cheated on @darinharvey with one of his family members! U left him, u have a serious cocaine problem.Stop the lies.” Yikes. Michelle has since deleted her Twitter page.
Meanwhile, after getting some backlash from fans on Monday, Brandi issued a pseudo apology (spelling errors and all) via Twitter stating, “In my head I was just having fun w/ my best friend who I adore & has been there for me during all my tuff times! I didnt mean to offend anyone! I beleive everyone shud be able to get married & maybe even embarass themselves in Vegas…”
Brandi also told E! News that the marriage was not “legal” or ” binding.”
“He’s my best friend,” she says of Darin. “I’m always down to have a good time. It sounded like something different. It was on my bucket list [to] get married in Vegas, so why not? … We’re not really married, but we went through the motions and we had a good time.”
