Brandi Glanville is finally revealing why she decided to step away from her podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered, for a hot minute.
The reason? Lisa Vanderpump.
Let’s dive into the drama on this one because it sounds like a doozy.
It all started last month when Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay got the green light for her own podcast.
“You guys had hired Scheana Shay to do a podcast, which would be like interviewing reality people and I was like ‘Oh, huh. That sounds kind of like mine,'” Brandi explained to her podcast producer and occasional co-host William Sterling. “And then you told me that you had to produce it, and I thought ‘Oh, my god. I’m being cheated on again with Scheana.'”
However, that wasn’t the only surprise. Brandi told her Podcast One talent booker, Kristen, that she wanted to bring Scheana on her podcast to “hash things out” despite them being “totally friends” these days.
“When I said that, Kirsten said, ‘Well, she can’t do the show unless she gets permission from Lisa [Vanderpump],'” Glanville said. “And that’s when I saw red and I was like, ‘F-ck everyone.’ And I left and I was just kind of like, ‘Are you kidding? This bitch is still ruining my life. I’ve been here almost five years. This is the one thing that I have that she can’t touch, and now she’s telling me whether I can interview Scheana or not?”
To add fuel to the fire, Brandi then tuned into Scheana’s appearance on Watch Happens Live with Andy Cohen, and found out Scheana was “stealing” one of her coveted podcast guests.
“Andy [Cohen] talks about [Shay’s] podcast, and she goes, ‘Yeah I’m having James Maslow on it.’ And I was like, ‘F-ck everyone’ because Kirsten had asked me if I would have James on my show,” Glanville said. “And then I wrote an email — a mass email — that was like, ‘Loyalty is nothing to anyone.’ And you know, I kind of regretted it. But I was like, you know what, it’s just too incestuous, too close to comfort.”
Then at the Night of 31 Doorbells on Watch What Happens Live Brandi ran into Scheana and confronted her; telling the VPR star that she’s the reason why she left her podcast. Scheana then revealed the real reason she couldn’t appear on Brandi’s podcast.
“It wasn’t that she had to get permission from Lisa; she wanted to wait to get her pick up for ‘Vanderpump Rules,'” Glanville said of Scheana confession. “Because Lisa does — she’s very controlling. And even posting pictures, she was scared. And I mean, that’s very sad. I’m not afraid of Lisa, obviously, but she did try to ruin my life for the past four years. And then having her just in this world, I was like ‘Hell no.'”
Thoughts on Brandi’s claims? Do you think LVP is that controlling? Would LVP fire Scheana for hanging out with Brandi?
