Brandi Glanville is clapping back after receiving a ton of criticism about her appearance.
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is taking on the haters, who have bashed her appearance in a new interview Entertainment Tonight.
In recent months, Brandi’s appearance was pulled apart and mocked in the press, with many speculating that she had botched cosmetic procedures done.
“I was super depressed, and I kind of went offline. I didn’t do any video chats; I didn’t do anything,” she confessed to ET. “And then when I finally did an interview in Australia, other people picked it up and were like, ‘Brandi looks completely different. She looks crazy!’ They were so mean.”
As a result, Brandi had no choice but to open up about a medical accident that left her with burns and scars on her face.
“I didn’t plan on sharing those pictures because obviously, they’re disgusting. I feel like Khloe Kardashian in a less famous way because people for the past 10 years have been picking on everything about the way I look, everything,” Brandi said. “‘She’s plastic. She’s this, too much filler, too much Botox…’ Whatever it is like, ‘She’s so fake!’”
“Here’s my real struggle. I have burns all over my face, and I’m going to have to deal with that scarring for the rest of my life. And please don’t kick me when I’m down,” she continued.
So, what happened to Brandi’s face?
She explained, “I have psoriasis, and during the pandemic, it was all over my face, and I’d never had it on my face before, and I was covered in it. And so my dermatologist prescribed this light therapy.”
Brandi reveals she accidentally left the light on for 17 minutes instead of 17 seconds.
“Who goes after someone for the way they look? And it’s just like, even if I did get a bunch of plastic surgery — which I will one day — why is anyone else commenting on it?” Brandi quipped before admitting her looks have changed quite a bit since she first joined RHOBH. “I’ve gained 20 pounds during COVID. I’m 10 years older. I’m not 35 years old anymore. A lot of [the Housewives] look better than they did 10 years ago.”
She added, “I’m like, ‘Geez, wow. I need to start doing something.’ But we change, and it’s part of it. It’s life. Like, come on, people.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns to Bravo Wednesday, May 19, at 8 p.m. ET.
