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 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.
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.
The divorce that shocked the world is FINALLY playing out on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Erika Jayne and Tom Girardi are no more. The mysterious marriage is coming to an end, and the insanity is only beginning. The other women have no idea what a ride they are in for this season. Erika can’t hide her life behind the curtain for too much longer. Too much is coming to light. It’s time to speak up or get out.
You have to wonder how legitimate Erika’s friendships are with Kyle Richards, Dorit Kemsley, & Lisa Rinna. They’re allegedly as thick as thieves, but they never saw this coming. They had no inkling whatsoever about this going down. What type of friend would keep their nearest and dearest in the dark like that? If anything, this might cause them to rethink their relationships with her. Will they hold her accountable for her secrecy?
It’s evident that throughout the 10+ years that the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been on the air, the show has undergone a lot of changes. But one always-reliable aspect is Lisa Vanderpump’s unwavering ability to throw a good dig. Her one-time best friend Kyle Richards has become a target of her tauntings, with their fight reaching entirely new levels of petty. LVP and Lisa Rinna tend to go head-to-head and bring up issues from their rocky past. And the shady Brit truly cannot help herself when it comes to dogging Dorit Kemsley, especially after the #pantygate and #puppygate of it all.
Regardless of your LVP thoughts and feelings, it says something that she remains so relevant to the storyline. And even after skipping out on the reunion never to be seen again. Well, except on Vanderpump Rules and all of her other spinoff shows. My theory is that the RHOBH cast can’t stop bringing her up to avoid having to talk about their own skeletons. Yes, I’m talking about you, Erika Jayne. Fans deserve the real-life tea, not the Lucy Lucy Apple Juicy or Brandi Glanville/Denise Richards nonsense.
Even though the year is 2021, somehow Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OGs Lisa Vanderpump and Kyle Richards are STILL finding topics to fight about. In fact, even though LVP’s been off the show for seasons, she always finders herself in feuds with her former co-stars like Lisa Rinna or Brandi Glanville like clockwork. What a blast from the past. Either LVP is salty about leaving RHOBH, or the ladies are jealous she’s relatively unbothered after her unorthodox exit. She has a new season of Vanderpump Rules to film and a new spin-off show about dogs. However, that doesn’t mean the shady Brit won’t find time to bash her former co-stars or retaliate if they try to come for her.
Kyle and LVP have gone back and forth recently about quite a few things, most of them relatively frivolous. First, Lisa sent a dinner bill to Kyle’s table as a prank and it caused a whole fiasco. Then, Kyle slammed Lisa for “ruining” an RHOBH fan’s photo by scribbling over the faces of her former co-stars like Dorit Kemsley and Erika Jayne. Kyle might be right that LVP is the queen of grudge-holding, but she does know how to throw a good dig. And is a good player to have on your team in the game of shade.
