Brandi Glanville admits that she’s downsizing and is a bit scared about the future now that she doesn’t have the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills paycheck. On Saturday, Brandi tweeted to her fans to listen to her latest podcast radio show episode, this time with guest Michelle Visage from RuPaul’s Drag Race.
On the episode, while the two were talking about the rat race, Brandi admitted that she’s now moving into an apartment.
“It’s hard. I’m at the 99 cents store and they’re like ‘Oh, we know you from Real Housewives. Why are you here?’ Are you kidding, I love it. I love it. Listen, I’ll go to the 99 cents store and then I’ll go to Prada and get a new bag, like that’s just how I balance things. But I know all of this could be over tomorrow. I’m not stupid like that. I save my money and, you know, I don’t own a house yet and we’re moving now into an apartment from a house, I feel like I’m kind of going backwards so…It’s hard because I, all I wanted to do was buy something and then, you know, the job situation turned around…”
Brandi said that she wishes she could give her two boys what they get at their father’s house. Her ex-husband, actor Eddie Cibrian, is married to country singer LeAnn Rimes.
“It’s just because my kids, you know, they don’t want to move, they love our house…On their father’s time, they have a beautiful house, I love that for them and there’s a part of me that wishes I could give them that same security of not moving every year. We’ve moved seven times in six years.”
At the beginning of season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville was shown moving into a new home overlooking the valley, with a big yard and a pool. She threw a housewarming party that even Lisa Vanderpump attended. As the Inquisitr reported, Brandi started moving from that house last weekend. She tweeted that at least her new condo neighbor is “HOT.”
When Michelle Visage reminded Brandi to be grateful for what she has and that there are many people in much worse situations, Brandi said that she’s just a bit scared because the money isn’t flowing in like it used to when she was on Real Housewives.
“That’s my struggle is because ultimately I feel that way [being grateful] half the time and then the other half of the time I feel like, ‘Oh my God I’m a failure’…I’m peddling and going nowhere but at the same time I know it’s going to be fine I know, listen, I’m gangsta, we lived out of my car for like two months, going couch surfing on my friends’ couches, with not a dollar to my name because everything was held up in an escrow fund. Canceled all my credit cards. I know we can do it but life has been cushy for a few years and I’m a little scared just because the money flow isn’t coming in but there’s a lot going out.”
