“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville generally has no trouble sharing the details of her personal life, but on Monday she took to Twitter to shoot down rumors that she had found love with former NFL star Drew Carter.
A Huffington Post report published last week described Glanville, 40, and Carter, 31, as a “budding couple,” claiming that they have already been out on four dates together. A source close to the alleged couple told E! News that Glanville had even begun introducing Carter to her friends.
"After shooting wrapped, Brandi, Drew and a couple of close friends hit the hotel's 1912 bar for drinks and snacks," a source told the entertainment site. "Later on, they met up with Kim Richards at the Polo Lounge. Kim and Brandi have been getting along great lately, they're really having fun with their new friendship."
The eyewitness added that Glanville and Carter shared a romantic kiss at the Polo Lounge before going their separate ways. "Drew left in his car and Kim then dropped Brandi back at her house in the limo she had hired for the night,” the source said.
After their third date together, a source said things were still going well and that the pair were “headed in the right direction.” "He's a good guy and he treats her very well,” the source said. “They're into each other.”
Carter, formerly an NFL wide receiver, added fuel to the fire when he tweeted a photo of the two out together on Saturday night with the caption, “Having fun.”
But Glanville publicly disputed the rumors on Monday, telling her Twitter followers that she and Carter were “just friends.”

Although Glanville has frequently appeared in the news in the last few months, it’s been more for her feud with ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his new wife LeAnn Rimes, which frequently involves her two sons, Mason and Jake, than for her dating life. Last week, after news broke that Cibrian, 40, and Rimes, 30, would be getting their own reality show on VH1, currently titled “LeAnn & Eddie,” Glanville announced over Twitter that her sons would not be appearing on it.

The series will feature six episodes and is expected to premiere at the end of 2013 or the beginning of 2014. Rimes previously hinted at the possibility of a reality show, telling the Associated Press in an interview that she and Eddie were considering “a show based in reality … A scripted show based around our lives.”
Rimes added that they had previously talked with producers about doing an unscripted reality series, but decided that “that kind of typical model doesn’t work for us.”
