Nothing is merry and joyful between Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump this holiday season.  Instead of sending Christmas cards and well wishes, these two former co-stars are busy battling via text message – sort of. 

Lisa and Brandi’s dislike for one another grows deeper by the day.   Lisa threw a party this week at Pump and during the soiree she received a ‘nasty’ text from Brandi.  According to TMZ, Brandi wrote,”Merry Christmas vanderC*** and yes i am having my moment 🙂 AND it’s amazing!!! How is yours???? hahahahah #karmasabitch Or is it a c***?? Hahahaha.”

Lisa passed her phone around the party, letting her guests see the ‘hatred’ that comes her way from her former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star.  Now here’s where things get a little twisty.  Lisa claims that the text was Brandi being hateful about the death of her beloved dog, Daddio.  She told TMZ, “It’s sad to have that much hatred in your heart especially at this time of year. Our lil Daddio meant the world to us. Anyway, happy Christmas.”

I’m not sure where Lisa got that sick angle from, but it’s a huge leap for a few reasons. First, Brandi’s text doesn’t mention or even hint at Daddio’s death in any way.  Second, Brandi is a dog lover/owner and, well, a human being.  Who the hell in their right mind would gloat over something SO awful?  What Brandi wrote in her text may have been snotty, but it certainly didn’t indicate that she was rubbing Daddio’s death in Lisa’s face.  I’m not shy about the fact that I’m not a Brandi fan, but this time I’ll defend her based on the info we’ve been given. 

Brandi took to Twitter to share that Lisa’s interpretation and TMZ’s report about WHY she sent the message was total crap (and she of course managed to throw some shade Lisa’s way at the same time).  “I knew nothing of a dog’s death I’m an animal advocate. I RESCUE dogs. I don’t buy them to use as accessories.” 

When asked why she couldn’t have just sat by and let it sit since it was Xmas, she replied, “it can but she ran to TMZ with it on Christmas not me.” 

Brandi also Tweeted a bit of an explanation of why she sent the text to Lisa.  “If UR going to use a TV show to talk shit about me where I am UNable to defend myself UR getting a rude text at the very least #VANDERCUNT.” 

She also suggested that Lisa should block her number in the future, “If you don’t want to get text from somebody here’s a tip-BLOCK THEIR NUMBER!! unless of course you need to use those texts to get press…”

Maybe it’s the holiday that has me feeling soft, but I sort of feel for Brandi on this one.  The text definitely could’ve been handled differently, but to run to TMZ with it – over Xmas no less – is pretty petty.  And then to suggest that the text was a low blow about Daddio’s passing..not classy.  It tarnishes the Vanderpump halo a bit, unless there’s more to it that we’re not hearing.
