If you watched the second season’s reunion (and I know you did), you’ll recall that Brandi was very vocal about Taylor’s memoir, claiming it exploited Taylor’s late husband Russell Armstrong’s suicide. Apparently, while on a spa trip to Ojai (a trip where several sources touted a Taylor + booze epic meltdown), Brandi announced her new book which chronicles, in part, her split to actor Eddie Cibrian who cheated on Brandi with his now wife Leann Rimes.
According to Us Weekly, once that tidbit was revealed by Brandi, “Taylor screamed that Brandi was a hypocrite.” Taylor, says another insider, “has been having drinking issues” while filming the current season.
The Huffington Post reports Brandi will definitely be added to next season’s cast as a full-time Housewife and that filming with her kids had little to do with Bravo’s decision to hire her! “Bravo signed up Brandi, not her children,” an insider reveals. “They love her personality and willingness to talk freely about anything without having to consult managers and PR agents.”
“She for sure will be a full-time Housewife next season. Filming is going so well she might end up being the new star of the show,” the insider adds.
And the rumor that Brandi was fired for not being able to have her kids on film is just that a rumor! “In fact the opposite is true,” the insider shared. “In the past, cast members have tried so hard to get their kids on camera to make them famous and it has never worked out.”
The insider even alleges that Bravo finds family-centric storylines boring! “You never see Adrianne Maloof’s children and whenever the story line has focused on the kids, it has become dull very quickly. Anyone that tells you they do not want to be part of the show because they are protecting their children is simply not telling you the truth.”
Well, it seems that Brandi and Eddie are still working out the terms of whether or not their children will be featured in the show. At a recent soccer game for their son, Brandi and Eddie were seen arguing and Brandi threatened to take him to court over the matter! A witness describes their exchange as a “hostile confrontation.” See – that’s why Bravo wants her. She’s willing to engage in a “hostile confrontation” in public, at a children’s soccer game. Oh, lawd.
After much back and forth about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ season three cast and some speculation that Brandi Glanville would again be relegated to “Friends Of The Housewives;” it seems our sassy Xanax-loving friend will be officially added to the cast. She’s earned her stripes and now, she’s a real Housewife. Something tells me that after she took on the Twisted Richards Sisters she had sealed her fate in gold!
According to RadarOnline, Brandi is a full-time cast member who will be getting a good portion of camera time this season. “They’ve offered her a full time role and she will be included in the promotional cast photos and will have her own introductory segment at the beginning of the credits. Brandi is absolutely thrilled.” Who else cannot wait for Brandi’s intro?
