Brandi Glanville And Kim Richards Spent New Year’s Eve Together

On the first day of the year, Kim Richards wished her fans a happy new year filled with health, love, peace, and joy. The tweet, posted on Friday night, expressed optimism that 2016 will be a “VAVOOMSHABANG” year.

So, how did Kim spend the last night of 2015? With her The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Brandi Glanville. Prior to going out on Thursday night, Brandi tweeted her excitement that she’ll be ringing in the new year with “REAL” friends, one of whom is Kim.

Brandi later posted a posted a photo of her and one of her sons, Jake, on the way to the restaurant.

Prior to midnight, Brandi posted a photo of Kim kissing Jake at Fleming’s Steakhouse. Brandi wrote that Jake got some “superstar love” from Kim.

After the clock struck midnight, Brandi posted a close-up photo of herself and Kim. Brandi dubbed herself and Kim “blonde and blonder.”

On Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards became closer to one another. While most of the other housewives questioned Kim’s sobriety and grew alarmed by her erratic behavior, Brandi defended her and said that the other women should stay out of Kim’s business. Brandi fought, in particular, with Kyle Richards over Kim. During Eileen Davidson’s poker party, after it became clear to everyone that Kim was under the influence of something, Brandi and Kim began to leave the house. Not wanting Kim to leave with Brandi, Kyle tried to stop Kim, resulting in a physical altercation with Brandi.

In her blog post recapping the night’s drama, Kyle accused Brandi of purposefully trying to drive a wedge between her and her sister. Kyle also accused Brandi of using Kim for her own purposes.

“Brandi clearly has been driving a wedge between my sister and me, which seems to have been her master plan from the beginning … Watching Kim and Brandi talking outside it is very clear to me that Brandi takes advantage of Kim when she is at her most vulnerable and wants her to believe that she is the only one that cares or understands her. Brandi also is using my sister to look like she is taking care of Kim and distracting us from Brandi’s own obvious issues.”

Yet according to Brandi, it’s Kyle who doesn’t really care about Kim. After another fight at a mixer, Brandi told Kim that the way Kyle treats her is “manipulative,” “irresponsible,” and dangerous. Brandi then told Kim that her other sister, Kathy Hilton, wouldn’t treat her the way Kyle does.

Kim seemed to believe Brandi. In a blog post that discussed the feud between Brandi and Kyle, Kim made clear that she feels as if Brandi has been a true friend to her.

“I do want to rebuild my relationship with Kyle, but I just don’t know how … Anyway, I hope Brandi doesn’t really feel pressured as one of my friends. She’s been there for me and so have so many other people outside of this group.”

While Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville aren’t shown on the current Season 6 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills as starring cast members, they both filmed some scenes that will be shown later on in the season. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Brandi and Kim were photographed filming a picnic scene with starring cast member Yolanda Foster. After Brandi received criticism for wearing a T-shirt that proclaims that it’s not fun to be sober around Kim, who has struggled with her sobriety for years, Brandi tweeted that Kim has a sense of humor.
