Brandi Glanville Defense Mode Brandi picks apart her Beverly Hills debut and tells us what she really thought of Lisa.
Tonight marks for me my first episode on RHOBH! Yeah! I feel so blessed to have become a part of this wonderful TV show. Watching the show was a new experience for me because I am not used to seeing myself on TV! I, of course, picked my appearance apart like any girl would do, from my talking out of the side of my mouth, to making funny faces, or to how my hair and makeup looked (we do it ourselves). After the insecurities subsided, I was able to sit back and really take a look at my interactions with this group of people. Needless to say, Paul and Adrienne are wonderful, cool, and honest people whom I adore more and more as time goes on. No BS with those two. Read Blog
Lisa VanderPump Nothing to Hide Lisa addresses Taylor’s accusations, her reaction to Brandi, and why she participates in reality TV at all.
This week after watching, many things became clear to me. I had no idea that Taylor was accusing me of something so sneaky and despicable as going to the tabloids with her personal information. That is deplorable, and as a woman with a conscience, who has many celebrity friends (where secrecy is crucial), and who also owns restaurants and is therefore privy to many situations shall we say, is an absolute insult, and I must say hurtful.
There are times when, as many of you have asked me in the past, I think why on earth am I doing this? Where I have had to reflect and ask myself honestly what would make me open my life for the world to see? My answer has always been, I have nothing to hide. I am honest and straight forward and not in the habit of being disloyal, and I try to be as supportive as possible of those close to me.
I knew Taylor to be in a situation that, from what she had told me, was a very difficult one. I have many times said to her, “I know we are not that close but if you ever need me, call me at any time of the day or night.” I always worried about her. Many things in the past just didn’t seem to ring true. Each time I saw her she was extremely emotional. She told us in Colorado that she didn’t eat and was losing weight at an alarming rate. I feel foolish now as she later gave an interview regarding some new diet pills she’d been taking. Read Blog
Kyle Richards Tiny But Mighty Kyle shares her thoughts on the “tiny, but mighty” Adrienne and on new girl Brandi.
Taylor came to me about a story that was leaked about her in the tabloids and on the internet. It was very personal information, which made it strange. However, I know that Lisa had nothing to do with this. It can be very difficult trying to figure out who leaks stories. For the person being targeted, it can be very frustrating — leading you to consider everyone you know and becoming very distrusting. I feel bad that Lisa’s name was dragged into this because I know that hurt her. All of us were taken aback when Adrienne and Paul showed up with Brandi to my cocktail party. We had all seen the pictures of Brandi with Cedric on the internet and tabloids and felt like she had ulterior motives. All of us were feeling a little defensive — especially, Lisa and me. Lisa and I are very close, so I felt protective because I knew that this was an uncomfortable moment for her. Read Blog
Dana Wilkey What You Don’t Know Dana shares some more details about her first episode and her first impressions of Brandi.
One of the first encounters I had with Brandi was that night. I asked her “Oh I’m so sorry, how did you break your foot?” She told me, and I’m paraphrasing, that she fell off her high heel. I was like, “That can’t really be the story. What a silly way to say you broke your foot.” Why wouldn’t you say “I just fell”? Anyway, then I glanced down at her feet, and she was wearing one stiletto heel and I’m thinking “Isn’t that dangerous based on the way you broke your foot in the first place. You’re really asking for trouble now!” That’s why I seem excited to be so catty towards her at the end! Read Blog
Adrienne Maloof The Most Dramatic Theater Adrienne talks sports, shares some of her basketball memories, and explains why she introduced Brandi to the ladies.
When they say that sports are the most dramatic theater in the world, they aren’t kidding. As an NBA owner, I can honestly tell you that I’ve been moved to laugh, cry, curse, and celebrate by what has happened on the court. In this past episode though, it was what was happening off the court that was causing me the most pain.
If I could have waved a magic wand or been granted a wish by a genie that day in Sacramento, I would have asked for everything to align in time so that we could get a new arena deal done with city leaders, partners, and the rest of the powers that be. We’d tried for a decade to get this done so that we would be able to give our fans what most of the other NBA franchises had — a state of the art, fan-friendly arena that was competitive in the league. After this episode was filmed, my family was able to find a way to stay for one more year to see how we could get the deal done and give it one more chance. At present time, it’s out of our hands.
The business of basketball however doesn’t account for the heart of basketball — and that’s what you saw at that last game of the season. I remember sitting in that limo, watching the fans outside and wanting to tell them that I was right there with them, aching from what seemed to be inevitable at the time –- having to move the team elsewhere.

BH Producers Hittin’ the Wall BH Producer Dave Rupel tells us about his production fatigue and answers your questions from last week’s blog.
Kyle’s event was important for us because we were introducing two of our new friends of the Housewives, Brandi and Dana. It was a very organic way to bring them in, because Kyle told her friends to bring friends, which is exactly what they did. Adrienne brought Brandi and Taylor brought Dana. Read Blog
