There are very few people in the world who can recognize a true stunt queen move. But if you were compelled to form a group of individuals who can clock someone that engages in questionable endeavors with a goal of achieving recognition, call a Bravo viewer. We get lots of stunt queens and most fans are well-versed in not tolerating blatant acts of
desperation forced content. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been suffering from forced content for several seasons now, and the person often called in to work is Brandi Glanville.
Brandi has basically been there for the show since
she was fired her contract wasn’t renewed. RHOBH had a rough go last year and lost Denise Richards as a result. Denise was the newest target in the environment where absolutely no one is ganged up on. After the disaster that was #puppygate and Lisa Vanderpump’s departure, rumors of a boring Season 10 filled the media during production. Evolution called in Brandi who had some handy dandy unconfirmed rumors to share. Despite the negative press, Denise quitting, and not exactly gaining fans, Brandi has no regrets.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has seen plenty of unusual characters in its day, but no one does it quite like Brandi Glanville. Brandi’s M.O. is to cause drama any way she can, whether it involves throwing wine in Eileen Davidson’s face or smacking Lisa Vanderpump. Even though Brandi hasn’t been full-time in a while, she tried to use a hookup rumor involving herself and Denise Richards to weasel her way back in last season. The drama ensued, and it mostly made Brandi, Lisa Rinna and most of the other ladies look like the worst friends ever by outing Denise. And it bit Brandi in the ass — she’s begging Andy Cohen for a job while Denise is unbothered. And Brandi even burned the bridge with her
only friend Kim Richards.
Brandi is always at a level 10 when it comes to her energy and ability to cause chaos, especially if there’s a camera or a blog involved. She’s a bit of a hot mess at all times. And she isn’t afraid to go low, especially if it involves insulting her enemies AKA Camille Grammer and LVP. Word on the street is she’s pulling a Ramona Singer and going for her real estate license. That is, if Andy doesn’t offer her a job first. She’s probably foaming at the mouth hearing that Teddi Mellencamp will be making a cameo instead of her. That’s tough, especially when boring old Teddi becomes more relevant than you.
The summer is here in the Northern Hemisphere, and everyone wants to believe the coronavirus pandemic is over. Restrictions have eased and people are ripping their masks off in a 21st Century version of bra-burning.
It may be a bit premature, and certainly people are still contracting the virus. Each and every tally and life matters, but some just get more media spotlight than others. In our beloved Bravo community several Real Housewives and their families have contracted and, thankfully, recovered from the disease. Shannon Beador, Kyle Richards, Frank Catania, Margaret Josephs, Joe Beningo, Marge Senior, Kathy Hilton, Dorit Kemsley, and Jennifer Aydin all recovered from the coronavirus. And now one more familiar Bravo face is battling COVID-19.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies like to celebrate authenticity. The cast applauds the act of “owning it”, “saying your truth“, and being “open and honest“. Quite frankly the damn show basically features actual saints who live by the mantras of their own creation. So it was really sad when suddenly, out of nowhere, alum Kim Richards’ tell-all book was taken out of production.
Because, let’s face it, Kim has some truth to tell but it might be safe to say others don’t want to hear it. Others like, oh, I don’t know, her sister Kyle Richards. Kim’s resurgence of fame was courtesy of RHOBH and her subsequent humiliation courtesy of her sibling. As a child actor in the 70’s and 80’s, Kim endured things that you only read about in horrific blind items. Kim told her story in a memoir, but the deal mysteriously disappeared like Erika Jayne’s dignity. Now Kyle might want to duck and cover, because the book deal is back on and Kim’s truth will set her free.
During the most recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the cast was eagerly awaiting the arrival of Erika Jayne. She was finally going to spill the tea about her divorce from Tom Girardi. And Brandi Glanville wasn’t there because she isn’t part of Season 11, even though she did all the heavy lifting last season.
Brandi created all the drama for RHOBH Season 10 when she alleged that she had a sexual rendezvous with co-star Denise Richards. During the anxiety-inducing cast trip to Rome, the Beverly Hills ladies confronted Denise and demanded that she address her relationship with Brandi. Teddi Mellencamp, Lisa Rinna, and Kyle Richards led the gang-up. Then Teddi had to pop back into her father’s shadow.
Awww, I guess clouds have a silver lining after all! The only thing Erika Jayne needs more than a
stylist break are some attorneys and it looks like she’s in luck. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star can breathe easy for about, oh, five minutes or so. Erika has been suffering from theft accusations of embezzling funds after estranged husband Tom Girardi represented clients who never got paid.
Erika might have the dubious honor of being the most unethical person on Bravo, and oh my dear lord, that is saying something. Numerous court cases are looming and chances are pretty good they can’t buy their innocense or pay to keep others quiet. Speaking of paying, on Monday, Erika’s entire team of attorneys quit without much warning and left her to hang in the wind unrepresented. Thankfully Erika must have woken up with a clear mind, free of pretend amnesia and remembered where her wallet is. It’s a lucky day in Beverly Hills for Erika because, they’re baaaaaaack.
It’s no surprise that Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi’s web of scandals, including their
scam divorce and legal issues, is the main event this year on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s really a story straight out of a horror movie. Tom allegedly embezzling millions from his clients, many of whom were victims of horrific accidents, to fund his over-the-top lifestyle. Erika says she’s not involved, but the questionable timing of her divorce says otherwise. Plus, Tom was depositing millions into her businesses that he earned from swindling his clients so she could fund her high-end fashions, over-the-top glam and virtually anything else she wanted in life that she didn’t have to work for.
Erika has maintained her innocence, but a recent Hulu documentary about the whole ordeal has plenty of people looking at her questionably. Yet, the word on the street is that Sutton Stracke is the only RHOBH who isn’t supporting Erika throughout all of this. Yes, the women who put people on trial for alleged hookups and #puppygate leaks are supporting a woman accused of being a total fraudster. It only further proves to me that the RHOBH ladies all help each other hide the real skeletons in their massive closets rather than confronting them on reality TV like they are PAID TO DO. Like, this is why Teresa Giudice is the Tom Brady of housewives. Ladies, take notes.
Grab your thigh-high boots y’all because we are now KNEE-DEEP in this mess. If you thought a lack of blending skills was Erika Jayne’s main problem, buckle up. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Illegally Blonde and The Housewife and the Hustler star is currently on hold at Craig Conover’s law office because her attorneys ran away. But don’t worry about Erika because a whole SLEW of other lawyers are plenty interested in what she’s up to.
Arguably the most famous Richards RHOBH has spawned is now Ronald Richards, the attorney assigned to Erika’s case to investigate her every hiss and eye roll. Emily D. Baker is another lawyer who has taken a keen interest in Erika and Tom Girardi’s massive judicial issues. And then we have Jay Edelson, of Edelson PC. Jay’s firm filed a class action lawsuit against Tom on behalf of plane crash victims duped out of settlement money. Edelson PC is determined to prove Erika’s involvement in Tom’s charades, despite her denial of any wrongdoings. According to Jay, we’re about to find out who the sniper from the side really is.
