The most controversial member of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Brandi Glanville, is breaking her silence after slapping Lisa Vanderpump on the show’s most recent episode. Brandi took to her Bravo TV blog to discuss their dramatic trip to Amsterdam and share some candid feelings about her co-stars.
Brandi, whose blog suggests her lack of response to recent events on “RHOBH” may have been due to business travel, opened her post by slamming new housewife Lisa Rinna. The 42-year-old wrote that through filming, as well as watching the show over the last few weeks, she discovered that Lisa has “three different” personalities.
“The thing that I see the most is that there are three different Lisa R. personalities,” she wrote. “The first is the bubbly, cool chick I had on my podcast and really liked. The second is the one who uses a soft, convincing actress voice to label people she barely knows as addicts, insane and white trash every week for our entire time together. ... The third Lisa R. is the one that said, ‘Why is everyone afraid of Kim Richards?’ and now says, ‘Kim Richards scares me!’ ”
Brandi went on to accuse Lisa of “taking angry potshots” at her via Twitter, adding, “I guess some people that wear that little red string on their wrist just pretend to study kabbalah?”
The pair have had falling outs multiple times throughout the season over Lisa’s concern for Kim Richards' sobriety; Brandi and Kim agreed that Lisa overstepped her bounds. After tensions reached their breaking point between Lisa and Kim, the 51-year-old Lisa decided to pretend nothing happened in an effort to salvage what was left of the trip. This move only served to further frustrate Brandi, who labeled it hypocritical.
Though her blog did touch on Lisa Vanderpump, Brandi did not directly address the slapping incident. She did, however, offer something of an apology to Yolanda Foster for the way the dinner aboard the boat went.
Brandi and Lisa Rinna aren’t the only “Housewives” still having issues after taping. Although it appeared there may be some resolution in their recent conflict toward the end of episode 17, TMZ reports that, with the exception of the reunion show, sisters Kim and Kyle Richards have not spoken since November. This issue is said to stem far beyond “RHOBH” drama, though that is still a factor.
Sources tell TMZ that Kyle has been angry with her sister since an incident in which her 18-year-old daughter, Alexia Umansky, was bitten by Kim’s dog. Kyle posted photos of her daughter surrounded by family while recovering in a hospital bed; Kim was not present and offered no comment on the incident. TMZ’s sources say they’re not holding their breath waiting for these two to reconcile.
The drama continues in next week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” as Brandi attempts to apologize to Lisa Vanderpump and the ladies head back home. Tune in Tuesday at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo.
