Brandi Glanville is known for being unfiltered, even if that means shading her former boss.
The former Beverly Hills housewife was discussing her single status on her Unfiltered podcast when she joked about getting married again. When asked if she thought about walking down the aisle again, she stated “I thought about that the other day, I was talking to someone about Andy Cohen.” Her friend commented “‘If it wasn’t for Andy – you wouldn’t be where you are.’ and I said ‘you’re totally right, I would probably be happily married to some hot guy living in a mansion.” Despite joking, Brandi admitted that “Reality TV hasn’t been great for my love life – that’s all. Of course, I owe him a huge ‘thank you.’ He put me on TV, and I got all of these other jobs.'”
Moving on to her connection to the new Netflix hit show Bling Empire (which if you haven’t seen yet and you are a Housewives fan – you should.) The show is the real version of ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’ focusing on an affluent circle of Asians living in the Los Angeles area. Most of the cast makes the ‘Real Housewives’ look like they are living on a budget to give you context. Brandi revealed that she was actually friends with the shows breakout star, Christine Chiu and even got her a Diamond on RHOBH years ago. Regarding the show, Brandi stated: “My friend’s on it. Christine Chiu – five years ago on housewives they ask you to give the names of friends you think would make great housewives’. I gave them her name, and they loved her. They wanted to film something with us to try it out. We filmed and had paparazzi show up, and she was offered the job. Her family saw the pictures of us leaving the place and they decided that they didn’t want her on housewives due to possibly embarrassing the family.”
This isn’t surprising as Christine’s in-laws have so much influence that Bling Empire shows she and her husband ask permission to use a surrogate. Below are the paparazzi shots of Christine and Brandi from when they filmed years ago:
Seeing Christine on Netflix’s Bling Empire, Brandi states she hopes this would open up Christine to ‘Housewives‘ as she would be a great fit. Per Brandi: “Obviously they’ve changed their mind and if she can do that she can easily now do Housewives.” Brandi added that she would still be a shoo-in for RHOBH casting stating “She’s fun and crazy. She has more money than probably all of them.”
I’ve watched the first few episodes of Bling Empire and am fascinated by it. I have no doubt that these families that come from powerful dynasties make some of our favorite Bravolebs look more like your average Joe. I think that Christine fits the housewife mold; however,r seeing her on a show that centers around her culture and family may be a better fit vs. joining an ensemble cast.
Thoughts on Brandi’s comments regarding Andy? Have you been watching Bling Empire? Do you think Christine would be a good addition to RHOBH?
