Will Brandi Glanville be a part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 7 cast?
As rumors regarding the potential Season 7 cast continue to swirl, Brandi Glanville is speaking out, revealing what it would take for her to consider returning to her role on the Bravo reality series.
“I think that the only way I would want to come back is if I had a partner, you know if I was in love and I had somebody by my side to have my back,” Brandi Glanville explained to Bustle on June 6.
Although Brandi Glanville has been linked to a few different men in recent years, including Jonathan Ruiz, whom she met at a party thrown by her on-screen nemesis, Kyle Richards, Calum Best, whom she starred alongside on Famously Single, and comedian Theo Von, Glanville appears to be currently single.

Brandi Glanville was brought to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills during Season 2 as a friend of Adrienne Maloof, who was starring as a full-time housewife at that time. Then, during Season 3, Brandi Glanville was upgraded from a friend role to a full-time role.
Throughout her time on the series, Brandi Glanville went through a number of up-and-down friendships. When she first joined the series, she and Kim Richards were involved in an ugly war of words, in which Glanville accused Richards of using drugs. However, by Season 5, the women were the best of friends. Meanwhile, Brandi Glanville called Lisa Vanderpump a close friend at the beginning of her reality run while they were at odds during Seasons 5 and 6.
Brandi Glanville was also at odds with Lisa Rinna, Eileen Davidson, and Kyle Richards by the end of Season 5, and although she returned to the show for Season 6, her role was reduced to part-time.
“I don’t think the women would come for me so hard,” Brandi Glanville said, looking back at her issues with the majority of the other women. “I feel like they respect people who are married on that show and they don’t respect other… I don’t know. I just want someone to have my back and to be there because they love me.”
“Yolanda has my back. Kim has my back, but they have their own problems,” Brandi Glanville continued. “[Yolanda is] sick [and] Kim [has her] struggles.”
After Season 5, when Brandi Glanville’s role was reduced, her friend Kim Richards’ role was reduced as well due to her struggles with sobriety, which resulted in two arrests during 2015.
Continuing on to Bustle, Brandi Glanville took aim at her former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars, claiming many of their friendships are only for the cameras.
“It’s not fun and a lot of the other friendships I don’t believe are friendships, they’re alliances. I really wouldn’t want to go back, unless my life is a different place,” she explained. “I say never say never, but I’m super blessed to be really, really busy right now.”

“I’ve made amazing friends doing #rhobh @YolandaHFoster @KimRichards11 @CarltonGebbia13 that’s my take away & I don’t need cameras 2see them,” she wrote on June 3.
