It’s clear there’s no love lost between Brandi Glanville and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But try as she might the former Real Housewife can’t stop taking digs at the show that made her famous no matter how hard she tries.
During a recent appearance on the podcast Andy’s Girls, Brandi dished about her former BFF Lisa Vanderpump’s influence on RHOBH and why no matter how hard anyone tries they will NEVER take LVP down.
Brandi makes it clear she knows that LVP is one manipulative bitch, saying Lisa “will always land on her feet – like a cat. She just gets forgiven. And anyone else – the public just takes them down.”
Going on to say that she actually felt vindicated during season 6 when the other women started to catch on to LVP’s manipulative ways.
“I was kind of relieved to see that the other women were seeing what I saw. Kyle had been saying it for years, but no one wanted to believe her. Then Lisa and I became friends, and that friendship quickly turned into like constant strategizing… It was exhausting, to be honest. We couldn’t just go to dinner – it was dinner, let’s talk about the show, let’s talk about what’s gonna happen next, almost planning everything, and I was, like, ‘this is not how I roll.’ Cause I can’t plan what comes out of my mouth, and that’s the truth! I wish I could because I would not be in the lawsuits that I’m in…”
While Brandi doesn’t believe anyone will take LVP down, she does believe Lisa will be gunning for the other women this upcoming season.
“She’s not gonna go down,” Brandi explains. “But I’m telling you the girls that cross her; she will come for them next season. And not just on the show – she will try to ruin their entire lives.”
As for why Lisa is still the reigning Queen of RHOBH, Brandi says it’s all about her connections and money.
“Andy loves her, and she has Andy’s ear. And beyond that, she always would say, ‘Well I have two hit shows…’ so we all felt that Lisa always had the power. All the other girls felt like, ‘Oh she’s gonna get this edited out, or she’s gonna get this or that because she’s got Vanderpump Rules as well…’ So we kinda believed what she would say to us, and therefore were all a little fearful of really going in [on her].”
“She is an executive producer on Vanderpump Rules, so we all joke that she thought she was producing the Real Housewives too, but then it kind of seemed like she was… These two shows are her life.”
Brandi also says that despite what fans think Bravo doesn’t pay for the most of the events and parties the Housewives throw on the show; insinuating that LVP has the upper hand because her money and restaurants.
“They pay for the trips and the travel, but not the parties. They’re like what do you have going on that we could film, and so there’s a kind of a pressure to, like, entertain. You do spend up a lot of money that you make because you don’t want to be the only one not throwing a party. I think that these women that have so much more to offer the show – with the restaurants, and with the fact that they can afford many more parties and all of this – the show really takes that into consideration. Like with Lisa, it’s like, ‘We have access to the restaurants, we have access to this and this and this, and to the big house…’ And that’s always important to the show.”
Regardless of what her critics have to say Brandi knows she’s changed but says she still won’t be coming back to RHOBH as long as she’s single.
“When I watch the shows I’m like, ‘If that were me in the same season, I probably would’ve reacted different then than I would right now today. I think it’s really easy for the other ladies to pick on ‘The Single One.’ When you have a husband there to back you up, it’s really nice.”
