Brandi Glanville claims to be doing great since getting the ax from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The single-mom is focused on her family, new business ventures, and having fans see a different side of her. Recently Brandi opened up her departure from RHOBH, her issues with Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump, and if she misses reality TV or not.
In a new interview, Brandi says she departed (she means fired right?) from RHOBH so fans could see that she’s more than the drunken, pot-stirrer.“I want people to see the other sides of my personality. There is more to me than just being the fun drunk girl that says fuck all the time.”
As for fans response to her leaving RHOBH Brandi says it’s been positive. “Other than a few angry bloggers that feel the need to hate, I have had a ton very positive support saying that I will be missed.”
When asked about the downfall of her relationship with former co-star Kyle Richards, Brandi doesn’t hold back.
Brandi reveals, “I think Kyle wanted to blame her strained relationship with her sister on someone other than herself and because of my closeness with Kim, I was an easy target.”
Brandi also doesn’t care about former co-stars Lisa Vanderpump and Taylor Armstrong’s claims that she was fired from RHOBH and lied about it.
“Lisa and Taylor who? I think they are just trying to get some press at my expense,” Brandi added.
While Brandi doesn’t claim to be perfect, she does think that critics and fans have a misconception about her. Brandi says fans think she’s “only the person they see on Housewives,” in actuality she has “many different sides” to her.
In fact, Brandi doesn’t care what critics think, especially the ones who think she drinks too much. “I don’t care what they say because I know the truth. I’m a single mom working my ass off, running a household and raising two little boys.”
Currently, Brandi’s busy working on new projects including her wine line and new show. “I have my new Sonoma County Chardonnay Unfiltered Blonde that I’m super proud of, and it’s doing AMAZINGLY.”
“I’m working on getting my new website filled with some fun t-shirts and other cool items. I have my podcast just starting its 3rd year called Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. I will be doing a new show starting in November, and I also have a development deal with a great network & I’m still working as we speak on my 3rd book.”
Despite her eagerness to move past RHOBH, Brandi does admit that she misses the show at times.“Some part of me misses the good times we had, but the stressful times for me recently definitely outweighed the good times, and I’m grateful for a bit of a break.”
Thoughts on Brandi’s interview? Does Brandi have many different sides to her that fans haven’t seen? Was Brandi the scapegoat for Kyle’s strained relationship with Kim? Do you think Brandi’s new show will be a success?
