Does Brandi Glanville want to return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Season 8?
As her co-stars, including Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, and Lisa Rinna, filmed for the upcoming season, which is due out later this year, Brandi Glanville spoke to the E! Network’s Daily Pop about her potential future with the Bravo series.
“I think right now my life is in a better place. I have a boyfriend, so it’s different now. I think when you are single on the show people just come for you because there is no man to be there having your back, you’re an easy target,” she said, according to a report by All About the Real Housewives of June 6.
Although Brandi Glanville claims to be content with her life as it stands at the moment, she didn’t exactly shut down the possibility of rejoining the show. She also admitted that the behavior leading up to her exit in 2015 wasn’t exactly admirable.
“I probably wouldn’t have slapped [Lisa Vanderpump],” Brandi Glanville admitted, citing her “love tap” in Amsterdam. “I didn’t hit her that hard… but they put a sound effect to it, so it sounds like I really abused her. I’m like ‘Oh God, that’s not going to go well for me.’ So, that was probably my one regret.”
Brandi Glanville’s role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was reduced after her “love tap, ” and during the show’s sixth season, she was seen on just a few occasions. The following year, during Season 7, she wasn’t seen at all and in the years after her exit, a couple of new housewives, including Erika Girardi and Dorit Kemsley, have been added.
Although Brandi Glanville received tons of backlash due to her behavior on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she told the Daily Pop crew that appearing on the Bravo reality series has been worth all the drama.
“Absolutely,” Brandi Glanville confirmed. “I think you take the good with the bad. I mean I think it was a great platform – I have my books, my wine, and I wouldn’t have any of that if it weren’t for [The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills]. It was a hard show to do as you know.”
Brandi Glanville established several relationships during her time on Bravo, but ultimately, she had a falling out with nearly all of her co-stars.
Following the episode in which Brandi Glanville was seen slapping Lisa Vanderpump, Vanderpump, who also stars in her own spinoff, Vanderpump Rules, opened up about the incident in her blog for Bravo TV and labeled the altercation as a “violation.”
“I haven’t had a hand laid on me since I was a child,” she wrote, as revealed by People magazine. “Also, I might add that it seems ironic that this is the same person that constantly reiterates to Kyle [Richards], ‘Don’t touch me.’ Might seem a tad hypocritical.”
Vanderpump went on to reveal that she was left “shocked” and “reeling” from the slap.
Meanwhile, in her own blog, Brandi Glanville admitted that she “f**ed up.”
She then went on to reveal that her actions were the result of Vanderpump’s two-faced persona.
“Lisa V. is two different people. One is the lewd, bawdy English chick with the wicked sense of humor that I love, [then] we have a second Lisa V. who pretends a colorful joke is a serious insult,” she concluded.
