What Secret did Brandi Spill? by NoMoreDrama
So what big secret did Brandi Glanville spill last night on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? According to a Wetpaint insider, Brandi heard Adrienne Maloof telling a story about the birth of one of her sons, where she suggests that it was she, herself, who delivered the child. Brandi says that Adrienne is lying, and that she used a surrogate.

Now the Wetpaint insider says this all went down at a party, but in reality Adrienne wasn’t at the luncheon when Brandi dropped the bombshell, so we’ll have to be the judge on whether this insider got the surrogate part right when they got the rest of the scoop wrong. Rumors that this was about Adrienne using a surrogate for her kids have been swirling on the internet for days – so the whole story could be built on sketchy information. Hard to say.
The detailed recap/blog of the show by BB is below.
Here’s what the cast have to say on twitter:
Paul Nassif (who has since divorced Adrienne in an ugly split, and recently helped out Brandi by referring her to a doctor for surgery to remove a non-cancerous breast tumor) said (as the episode aired):
“Was being protective when the conversation went out of bounds. Glad everything is fine with
@BrandiGlanville. Time to enjoy the holidays!”
Brandi Glanville: “Most of what happened with AM &me was after the reunion & off camera so its hard to see why Im so upset with her! Please remember this!”
(Off topic a little, but LeAnn Rimes gave an interview to E! that aired on Sunday, and while it was tough for Brandi to watch, she did receive this good news “WOOHOO! I just got off the phone with my book editor and our numbers went up even more last night after a certain E news interview! Hahahha!”
From Brandi’s blog (the only blog that is up at this point). I only brought over the part that related to Adrienne and Paul, the full blog can be found here.
I said something I shouldn’t have said and I am sorry and I now regret it.
I know, it’s shocking right? My mouth gets me in a lot of trouble, but this time I’ve pissed off the wrong rich person. It is so frustrating when Adrienne or her people say something about me that isn’t true or discuss me as a parent, I think she has met my kids one time.
Normally I would laugh it off. I mean I’ve had my fair share of negative stories written about me through my divorce. But when the lies involve my children, like any good mother, ALL BETS ARE OFF! No one is perfect. We all make mistakes, and if I could take this back I would. Trust me! I can’t, so now I just have to deal. Boy is it going to be expensive! (Rumors are that Adrienne did sue.)
My frustrations with Adrienne since last season’s reunion have been boiling for some time, and I finally reached my breaking point. I understand why Paul was upset with me and he was just defending his wife’s honor. But I don’t think even Paul was aware (at the time) of how underhanded she could be.” (Yes – that is clear now.)
What do you Think?
I personally don’t care how Adrienne formed her family, and if she told a white lie about that big whoop. I have stronger opinions on Kim and Brandi. What do you think?
And our continuing poll from Atlanta …
On another topic – yes it does appear to be true that Kyle and Kim Richards are on some sort of high diving (literally) reality show that will air on Fox. Kyle tweeted this photo last night: Training for

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “She’s Gone Too Far” by BB
Someone is egging Kyle and Mauricio’s house and cars. That happened a lot when my girls were in high school. It happened to my next door neighbor a lot. It was a friendly prank thing, not a mean thing. The teens knew to never hit the cars with the eggs. Mauricio takes Kyle, Alexia and Portia outside to show them, and hands Alexia the keys to a luxury car. If I’m rich and my daughter is responsible, a good kid, and makes good grades, then I would probably do the same thing. It’s not that pretentious when you’re living in Beverly Hills. It doesn’t look like a car a teen would pick out, but what do I know? I’ve rewarded my kids for being good kids, not on that level of course, so I’m not knocking it. Of course, the first fender bender, speeding ticket, etc., and the keys are confiscated for a long, long time.
Brandi and her book agent Michael meet for lunch to discuss the title and cover of her book. We have to hear once again why the release of her book is different from Taylor’s. Can we just put it to rest once and for all? Her book agent represents Chelsea Handler so Brandi is in good hands. Chelsea’s had at least two best sellers. Later Brandi calls Lisa to make sure the server who slept with Brandi’s ex-husband will not be working at Sur that night when they get together. Lisa assures her she will not be there. Brandi has a new straight hair style. I like it.
Lisa and the SUR bartender are getting ready for a small food tasting to test some new appetizers on the menu at Sur. The night before, Stassi, one of Lisa’s servers, insulted one of Lisa’s important long-time customers. She has a stern discussion with the Stassi, tells her she should be sacked, and will not be working that night. This is an obvious preview for Lisa’s new show. As much as I love Lisa, I don’t believe I’m going to enjoy watching a bunch of actor/actress wannabe servers acting like immature brats and Lisa being the stern mom with them. Maybe Vanderpump Rules won’t totally be like that.
Kim and Brandi arrive first and discuss Ken’s hip replacement surgery the next day with Lisa. Lisa is very nervous about it and Brandi tells Lisa he will be fine. Kim can’t believe she arrived before Kyle and calls Kyle to give her a taste of what Kyle used to do to Kim when she was late for things.
Kyle, Mauricio and Taylor (I guess she’s not ready to flaunt her married boyfriend yet) finally arrive and they all sit down for some food tasting. Lisa asks Kim if she’s OK and Kim says she’s really OK and Lisa says she can tell. Kim says there are some people who still make her want to cry sometimes. Mauricio asks her if these people are in her past now. Kim says some are and some are still part of her life (hint: Kyle). The food looks delicious.
Someone asks if Adrienne is coming Lisa says Adrienne is busy that day. Brandi brings up Adrienne’s book deal, which Lisa says isn’t true and Ken says if she’s writing one, it will be very short. Mauricio says that’s mean. Speaking of mean, shit stirrer Kyle has to ask Brandi what really went down between her and Adrienne. For some reason, Kyle thinks the subject will be pleasant dinner conversation. Brandi tells them she has many issues with Adrienne, the big one being that Adrienne and Paul talked to her on the phone for over an hour one day trying to intimidate her into talking about Lisa and tweeting things in support of them, which she refused to do. She thinks Adrienne lies a lot.
In Brandi’s talking head, she mentions Adrienne repeatedly lying about one topic and everyone knows she’s lying about it, but nobody calls her on it. Apparently, Brandi finally blurts it out into the open at the dinner table. Of course, we the viewer, don’t get to hear what it is. As usual, everyone is aghast because it’s such a private, private matter, and so, so hurtful to Adrienne and her family, but they don’t discuss it with Brandi or each other at that time. They decide to talk about it to each other later amongst themselves or, as Kyle likes to do, in her talking head. This seems to be a recurring theme with these ladies.
At Adrienne and Paul’s house, they are having a (fake) BBQ with their nephews. Where are their three boys? Family and friends are everything to Adrienne and she informs us Brandi is not her friend. Paul and Adrienne fuss about how to tear the lettuce and how bad the wine tastes. Paul hands the BBQ duties over to the maid/housekeeper and goes for a swim in the pool. Adrienne and the nephews tease Paul about his hairy back. Wow, I want to go to a BBQ at Paul and Adrienne’s. It looks more fun than a root canal!
Over at Kyle’s house, Kyle is getting ready for a big event Mauricio’s new firm, The Agency, is having. At the event, Camille and Dimitri are talking to Mauricio about how good a cook Dimitri is. According to Camille, he’s a “compassionate soul.” The difference between Dimitri and Kelsey is 8 inches (funny, Camille, and classy). Brandi brings her friend Darren (I don’t think they are dating anymore). Kyle informs us this event is a big deal for Mauricio. He’s hoping to sell a couple of condos in the building where he is holding the event. In other words, it’s a fancy open house. The condos are very nice and go for about $2.5 mil. The views are great. Camille would only buy one for investment purposes. She’s not going to buy one, Mauricio. Maurice is hoping to do $200 million in sales this year.
Lisa and Ken arrive at the hospital for his hip replacement surgery. He asks about satin sheets and a 35 inch tv. Lisa thinks he’s joking to mask his nervousness. He’s about to go into surgery and Lisa tells him he’ll feel better afterwards. He’s 16 years older than Lisa and she’d rather have the surgery herself. Pandora and her brother show up. Lisa is a nervous wreck. It’s routine surgery, but you never know. The nurse comes in to make sure the correct hip has been marked. Ken’s son hugs him and tells him he loves him before he leaves. Lisa and Pandora walk Ken down the hall and then kiss him and tell him they love him. Lisa says she couldn’t live without Ken.
Later, the surgeon comes and tells Lisa and Pandora Ken is fine and will probably be walking by the next day. She and Pandora go back to the recovery room and ask him how he’s feeling. He’s totally out of it. Lisa keeps talking to him and he could care less. Their love for each other seems genuine.
At The Agency event, Kim shows up right before Adrienne and Paul. After all the greetings have taken place, Kim feels the irresistible need to start some shit and pulls Adrienne and Paul to the side to tell them what Brandi said the other night at the food tasting. Kim says Brandi called Adrienne a liar. Kim drops the bombshell about what Brandi said concerning Adrienne’s family. We are not privy to it. For some reason it must be really bad. What could it be because Paul calls it defamatory and Adrienne says Brandi’s going to be slapped with a fat old law suit? Paul wants to slam her. Adrienne says it’s below the belt and classless. Adrienne says Brandi lies 24/7, has too much time on her hands and doesn’t take care of her own kids. I guess what Adrienne said about Brandi is OK.
Paul asks Kim what everybody else said. He particularly wants to get something on Lisa. He’s hoping Lisa said something bad, but is disappointed when Kim says nobody really said anything. But whatever Brandi said is character assassination and it’s a lawsuit. Paul announces he’s leaving because of what that bitch said. A casino between Paul, Adrienne and Brandi ensues with name calling and cursing. I find it so ironic that Paul calls Brandi a bitch and is then incensed when Brandi calls Adrienne a bitch. I believe Paul also calls Brandi a piece of shit and Brandi tells Paul “Eff you.” Then Adrienne accuses Brandi of sleeping until 3 p.m. and leaving her kids unattended, and says she’s full of drugs, etc. I guess that’s not character assassination or defamatory. As she’s leaving, Adrienne spews the “Eff You” phrase too.
Meanwhile Kyle (the original shit stirrer) is upset at Kim for starting the whole thing at Mauricio’s event in front of his important clients. I would think that his clients probably figured out something would go down when all the housewives showed up and the cameras were there. They were probably looking forward to some excitement instead of Mauricio trying to sell them a condo.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m feeling like Bravo cheated their faithful viewers tonight. I mean, how can we judge or defend Brandi without even knowing what she revealed? Are Adrienne and Paul overreacting? How would we know if we don’t even know what the big bombshell is? I’m a little frustrated right about now.
