Brandi Glanville may not be a full-time star on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she brought an important storyline to the show. The alum of The Housewives dropped the bomb she had connected with Denise Richards, who drove the last part of season 10. Analyzing her situation, she now says she feels used by the producers and shadows the cast for not being authentic.
Drama for RHOBH Season 10 was business as usual for the ladies. However, it all turned upside down when Brandi Glanville made an appearance and made a revelation that scared everyone. The Celebrity Big Brother alum claimed that she had joined the Wild Things actress and talked badly about her co-stars.
On the cast trip to Rome, Italy, Teddi Mellencamp had a hard time sharing the same space as Denise Richards. Brandi Glanville had told her that Denise Richards said that Mellencamp lived in the shadow of her father, John Mellencamp. It was eventually at dinner that Mellencamp confronted Richards and asked if the allegations were true.
Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife denied ever talking badly about her roommates. In addition, Mellencamp hinted that there were other things Brandi Glanville had said. At first, the accounting coach didn’t want to reveal anything about the alleged affair, because that wasn’t what she was upset about.
However, after the ladies pressured her to say it, she eventually sent shockwaves across the table. Denise Richards again denied all allegations and said she wasn’t even close to Brandi Glanville.
For the rest of the season, Denise Richards avoided talking about the subject and tried to interfere with the fact that the producers cut out the allegations.
RHOBH: Brandi Glanville Feels Used
Without being a full-time housewife, Brandi Glanville contributed much of the drama. Despite being useful for the show, she was not offered a bigger role in the show that left her frustrated.
“I’m just really frustrated at this point,” Brandi Glanville said in a Celeb Chat interview with Domonique Racquel. “I like doing things with the other women, but I feel like the carrot has been dangling for so many years. They call me back for a few things. I don’t make any money and then they use me all season for their PR.”
Brandi Glanville was an RHOBH star from season 3 to season 5. Since then, she has done guest appearances all year round. She also called the ladies from the Beverly Hills franchise for not being as authentic as other franchises.
“[RHOA] and [RHONY are] so real because they actually drink and they actually go through sh*t and go to jail, fighting with cops,” she added. “I feel like [the RHOBH cast] is like, ‘I’m going to pretend to drink alcohol and get my hair and makeup done for $100,000. It’s a middle-aged fashion show where everyone is so regulated.”
“I think with this group above all, they’re afraid of the truth,” Glanville also said. “They all want to keep their truth in the closet and they think they can protect it. So I came up and I spoke the truth and I started to stop and leave left and right. I’m like, “Wait. We’re supposed to talk about our lives.”
