brandi glanville

Okay, okay, we get it Brandi Glanville. You're no longer friends with Lisa Vanderpump and you adore Kyle and Kim Richards who once hid your crutches and made you cry. Oh, and you made out with Carlton Gebbia! Seriously girlfriend, it's time for a new shtick!  

Monday's episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had the Richards sisters celebrating graduation, Yolanda Foster celebrating her husband's star on the Walk of Fame, and, what was that again? Yes, yes.  Brandi making out with Carlton. While she mentions all of it in her Bravo blog, I've just chosen to highlight her new infatuation with Splits and her sibling sidekick. Brandi feels sorry for Kyle, y'all.  Join me, won't you, as we return to bitch mountain…


Right out of the gate, Brandi takes an opportunity to throw Lisa under the bus and make Kyle the victim. I am really not onboard with this attempted edit this year, and Bravo will never make me believe Kyle is anything but a mean girl no matter how many cheating rumors she weathers or how much puppy poop she cleans up on a daily basis (that Portia is too cute for words though!).  Brandi begins, "I am really feeling sorry for Kyle at this point with the ongoing, back-and-forth stance Lisa is taking about the Mauricio cheating scandal. Yes, we have all talked about it, and I myself even brought it up at lunch. But we all agreed it was BS." Another thing I won't ever believe? Brandi bringing up the cheating rumors at lunch to be a girl's girl…she was pot stirring, pure and simple!

Brandi writes, "Months ago when it first came out, Lisa said she didn't know if the stories were true or not, which leaves people doubting Mauricio. Then she brought it up in front of Kyle and Mauricio's five year-old-daughter Portia, which was so inappropriate. When I brought it up to the group at Carlton's lunch, Lisa cut Yolanda off in the middle of her sentence and said 'you mean there is no smoke with out fire,' but then added she knew it was all rubbish. Which is it??? Now again sitting talking with Ken (knowing full well the ramifications) says she doesn't know if it is true or not and that they will never really know the truth," adding, "I'm with Ken on this one, you should always let a friend know about harmful gossip, because it sucks to have people talking behind your back. You should always support and believe a friend (even a not-so-close-friend like Kyle and I were). Families first, middle age b—-y-ness second." Doesn't she know she does middle-aged bitchiness pretty well herself?  Of course, Kyle has her beat.

Moving onto the more entertaining and less annoying Richards sister, Brandi shares, "I really love watching Kim with her family. She has come such a long way. I've gotten to know her a lot better over these past few months, and trust me when I say her kids are her life. Kim is a sweet, very nutty, soul, and I just adore her. I'm proud of how far she has come in her sobriety, and I know it is a daily struggle because I have plenty of sober friends. I sometimes feel guilty having a drink around her because I don't want her to judge me. But then I have to remember I have never claimed to be sober, especially not on vacations (as you see in the preview for next week's episode)." I do have to applaud Kim, and it was so much fun to watch her interacting with her kids. Her description of her daughter's original graduation dress was priceless.

Not shockingly, Brandi concludes with one simple sentence: "Oh, and did I mention I kissed Carlton?" I am still in need of some eye bleach.
