Brandi Glanville Opens Up About Kim Richards’ Sobriety, Yolanda Foster’s Health, And Kristen Taekman’s Marital Problems!

Brandi Glanville on Entertainment Tonight

Brandi Glanville is a wealth of information about everyone else’s problems. Which is a welcome change from her complaining ad nauseum about her own! The former Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star dished on the dramatic lives of her three remaining Bravo friends, Kristen Taekman, Kim Richards, and Yolanda Foster

Beginning with Kim, who just avoided jail time for one of her arrests, and has been in and out of rehab, Brandi confirms they are still close. 


“We do talk,” Brandi revealed, adding that it’s “hard” for her. “I’m a friend. I’m not, you know, a sober companion. Obviously, I’m not a coach. You know, I’m there for her as a friend,” she explained. “I will always take her calls, and that’s really all I can say about it right now.”

Brandi also confirmed that Kim did indeed skip a recent court date because of a “disgusting” foot injury. Upon seeing pictures of Kim’s injured foot Brandi encouraged her to get medical attention. “I was like, ‘Oh my God! Go to the doctor.’ She was like, ‘I can’t.’ I think she didn’t want to go to the hospital because the press.” I think it’s because she injured it falling down drunk… similar to Brandi’s own previous foot injury! 

Brandi isn’t just limiting her supportive friend role to Kim – she’s also there to nurture Yolanda in her time of need! 

“She’s just not really seeing any light at the end of the tunnel,” Brandi said of Yolanda’s mental state. “She’s doing every treatment under the sun! And luckily for her, they have the money to afford these amazing treatments and they’re just not helping.”

“She’s so strong,” Brandi added. “She was in surgery for 6 hours – they took lymph nodes and everything else. She’s already on the treadmill. She’s shooting ‘Housewives’ … I’m like, ‘How do you do it?!’ She is the strongest woman I know.”

Interestingly Brandi is changing her cheater-bashing tune when it comes to Kristen’s husband Josh Taekman getting busted in the Ashley Madison hack. Brandi sympathizes with Josh over being brandished as a cheater, even though he wasn’t necessarily caught cheating, per se…

 “You know, the hard thing is, whether it’s true or not when it comes to the rumors — and I believe that it’s not — going through anything in the public eye is so difficult,” Brandi told Entertainment Tonight. “Even if it never happened and it’s all a lie, he’s gonna be judged for that for the rest of his life, and she’s gonna have to deal with it, and people shaking their head and going, ‘Why are you with him?'”

“It’s just unfair but at the end of the day, it’s what we sign up for,” added Brandi who spent her entire last season complaining about being bullied, and persecuted, and framed. Still – Brandi has faith in her long-time close friend. “Kristen is a strong woman, and she will hold that family together no matter what.”

Well, for once Brandi has some positive things to say. SO that’s nice! Kristen is once again in LA with Brandi, where they are reportedly working on a new TV project. Kristen was also photographed alongside Tori Spelling and getting advice from her on marriage. Makes us wonder if this new show has something to do with cheaters… Of course, I fully expect that if Kristen isn’t fired from Real Housewives Of New York in the wake of Josh’s situation, she’ll ditch Brandi faster than a girl can say Pop! As in Pop of Color.
