Melissa Gorga was Brandi Glanville’s podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, last week and the two ladies dished on everything from negative people (ignoring them!), the two newcomers on Real Housewives of New Jersey and more.
Melissa starts out by asking Brandi how she liked filming Famously Single. Brandi says it was just different and they weren’t “fighting just to fight like we do on Beverly Hills.”
On how this season of RHONJ has been different, Melissa says “This season has been different because we added two new Housewives.” She says that it’s season 7 and it’s hard to throw new people in this late in the game. “Especially in Jersey because we’re family.” But Melissa does think Dolores and Siggy were the best additions so far.
On the negative people who tear her apart for every little thing, “in the beginning I used to be bothered by it but now you can definitely say anything to me and it does not faze me. There’s not a Tweet that can faze me, there’s not a comment. Like nothing fazes me. I was waiting for this to happen, waiting for the day when I would not care. I finally don’t give a shit. I say what I want, I do what I want. I do what I believe in and that’s it. I don’t care what anyone says. I don’t care if you think I’m fat, I don’t care if you think I’m ugly. I don’t care what you think about my husband. Like go scratch.”
Brandi chimes in to agree. “Yes, it took a while for me, too. I definitely was engaging with people that were hating and I realize now like ‘why?’. Who cares if they want to say I’m old or this and that. Now instead of pushing block, I push mute.”
Melissa does acknowledge that there are many fans out there who are nice and “look up to” the Housewives. “There are supporters out there who look up to our families and want to have families like that. That I love.” She says that it’s all part of reality TV and she doesn’t want to complain about it. “No one wants to hear us complain about it because we signed up for it, so we need to man up and deal with it.” Brandi says “exactly.” And then Brandi adds a dig at her former co-stars, “I know like the girls on Beverly Hills they still can’t take like one negative Tweet.” Brandi says they should look at their lives and not care about what anyone is saying because they have it all. Brandi does admit that she engages with the haters when she’s drinking or if they talk about her kids.
About the rest of this season, Melissa says the show seems like it’s wrapped in a pretty little bow, but she assures us IT IS NOT. So, lots of drama to come. “It’s going to get a little crazy the next couple of weeks.” She says they haven’t filmed the reunion yet and she knows it’s going to be a hellish one.
Brandi and Melissa also chatted about hair, diet, businesses, etc. You can listen to the full podcast here.
