Wendy Williams isn’t buying Brandi Glanville’s claims that she’s considering leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. For the past few weeks, Glanville has led fans to believe she’s unsure of a Season 6 return, but Williams claims it’s all a ploy for more money.
According to a February 19 report by Real Mr. Housewife, Wendy Williams spoke out about Glanville’s claims during a recent episode of her talk show.
“That’s what NeNe always says. That’s how I guess you keep them so they want to give you more money and stuff like that. I guess Brandi is trying to go that route.”
Leakes has claimed to be leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta for the last few seasons, and when it comes to the upcoming eighth season of the show, things are no different. As the Inquisitr reported earlier, Leakes recently said the show had a negative side, and questioned whether a Season 8 was possible.
“I don’t know if I have the patience for another season – all those women arguing is draining. I’d love a spin-off or talk show,” she told Radar Online on February 4.
While Leakes has established herself as an actress (both on television and Broadway) and clothing designer, Glanville’s business endeavors are based on her Bravo fame. That, according to Wendy Williams, is why she should remain on the cast.
“I don’t understand how you pay your bills. Now I know you have your pod, excuse me, but in real life, who leaves a job without figuring out how they’re gonna pay their bills? I know she has a podcast and that’s very interesting. I know that you are a NY Times best selling author and that’s interesting. I understand that your website is very, very popular because you put the Housewives on it. But do you realize that the foundation of everything that you are career-wise and everything that people know about you is a Housewife of Beverly Hills? Without the show, nobody’s buying the books, nobody’s podding and casting, and nobody’s gonna go to your website.”
Wendy Williams may have a point here. While Glanville has an established audience now, she was unknown before the show, and without it, who knows what could happen? And is it really worth risking her future to find out?
