Usually, Brandi Glanville is boasting about how great her life is post-Real Housewives, even saying how she turned down $500,000 to do season six of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now the former Housewife is complaining about her struggling financial situation.
In her recent, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered podcast Brandi gets very real about fame and her financial struggles since leaving, I mean being fired from RHOBH.
“I know all of this could be over tomorrow. I’m not stupid like that. I save my money and, you know, I don’t own a house yet, and we’re moving now into an apartment from a house. I feel like I’m kind of going backwards. It is hard because all I wanted to do was buy something and then, you know, the job situation turned around.”
Brandi also reveals that moving again and again is hard for her kids. “It’s just because my kids, you know, they don’t want to move,” said Brandi. “They love our house. On their father’s time, they have a beautiful house. I love that for them. There’s part of me that wishes I could give them that same security of not moving every year. We have moved seven times in six years.”
The Unfiltered podcast guest, Michelle Visage from RuPaul’s Drag Race told Brandi that none of the material things matter as long her boys are fed, clothed, and loved.
“I feel that way half the time, then the other half of the time I feel like a failure. I’m peddling going nowhere. But at the same time I know it’s going to be fine. Listen, I’m gangster. We lived out of my car for two months, going couch surfing on my friends’ couches, with not a dollar to my name because everything was held up in an escrow fund, canceled all my credit cards… I know we can do it… but life has been cushy for a few years. I’m a little scared just because the money flow isn’t coming in, but there’s a lot going out.”
Perhaps Brandi should have sucked up to Real Housewives producers a little more and not bad mouthed the hands the paid her. Hopefully, Brandi can find a new source of steady income.
