Brandi may have left RHOBH but that doesn’t mean she is done making headlines!
Recently Gerard Butler was on WWHL and commented on their very brief romance, which wasn’t exactly complimentary of Ms. Glanville. Gerard seemed almost embarrassed of their hookup even admitting that he didn’t know her last name. To see his response on WWHL you can view his appearance on Bravo by clicking here.
Gerard summed their hookup as: “Anyway, we hung out, we had fun, and then I never saw her again. Suddenly, I was walking down the street with a director and these guys from TMZ go, ‘Hey, what about you and Brandi Glanville?’ And I’m like, ‘Who’s Brandi Glanville?’ because I didn’t even know her last name … She got pretty upset.” Hm….sleeping with a guy then having him publicly say he doesn’t know her will make any girl upset in my opinion!
Obviously Brandi isn’t the type to sit back and stay quiet and posted her response, using the #Timesup Hashtag which ended up creating controversy. In her response, Brandi states:
“I would like to make something crystal f—ing clear to you, your behavior the other night, publicly acting as if you were embarrassed to have ever met me or had relations with me as if I were some horrid decrepit troll is not only disgusting but unacceptable. #Timesup on this kind of behavior. Just a little advice for you moving forward Scorpio to Scorpio: Respect the women you invite into your bed and into your life. Whether you know their last name or not! Whether they are famous or not! Just be a proper human being. With the Me Too movement I have found my voice again and I refuse to stay quiet. I may not have been sexually harassed but I have been humiliated, embarrassed, financially tortured and emotionally abused by men in power, in my work life and by men like you in my personal life.”
The reason their brief romance was made public was because Brandi was asked who her most famous hookup was. To that, Brandi states it was a mistake to reveal his name:
“At that time you were kind of a big thing so I said your name. I then was asked on a scale from 1-10 what would I rate you as a lover. I very kindly said an 11. I was completely caught off guard obviously not expecting any of these questions and the moment after I answered them I regretted it. So the rating of an 11 I gave you as a lover was a knee jerk reaction peace offering for having blurted out your name. I could have actually just told the truth.”
Brandi even ended up bringing her marriage into it, saying she never asked for the famous life, and fame sought her out:
“The truth is that because of my inability to put up with other people’s bullsh–, not think before I speak and fight back hardcore during a very ugly, very public, very devastating and heart crippling divorce, I was catapulted into the whirlwind of reality [TV]. If been given the choice I’d rather be f—ing happily married to a ‘faithful’ Eddie Cibrain quietly-ish raising our 2 beautiful boys with no cameras other than the ones he worked in front of.”
Brandi ended her lengthy post with: “For the record I am now embarrassed to have ever known you. I think you suck and my dad wants to kick your ass.”
I think it’s fair that if Gerard has the right to give his opinion of things then it’s only fair that Brandi get the same chance. I do think she made a point that if men are okay with inviting a woman to their bed they should have the decency to respect them in public.
Apparently the women of The View didn’t take kindly with B using the #TimesUp hashtag as the topic was recently brought up on their show. Whoopi ended up slamming Brandi by saying saying:
“I think she wanted some attention and he wouldn’t give it to her.”
Yikes! Joy Behar seemed to have her back saying, “When the woman has said she slept with you and then to act like you don’t know who she is, that’s kind of obnoxious. He should have said, ‘Very nice person,’ something like that. Just make it up, get through the show, OK?”
You can view the debate on The View in the video below:
I understand Gerard not being thrilled with a weekend hookup being made public; however I think Brandi made a valid point of him being obnoxious with his response. IF a girl is good enough for a guy to take to bed he had better speak well about her in the public eye.
