Intervention for Brandi Glanville – Hosted by Kim Richards – Didn’t Happen! by NMD
In tabloid news that gets more laughable everyday, The Gather is reporting that one of the story lines proposed for Season Four of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was an intervention for Brandi Glanville. It seems that Kim Richards has noticed what the rest of the world – aside from Yolanda Foster – has noticed. Brandi has spun out of control. According to the article, Kim suggested an on camera intervention would be just the ticket to help her once worst enemy but now best friend forever. Suggested hostess for the event – either Kim (as she is experienced) or Lisa Vanderpump.
Brandi didn’t embrace the idea. Shockingly.
“[Brandi] shot it down… immediately!” the source for Gather explained. “Brandi didn’t want to be a part of it and insisted she doesn’t have a drinking problem… she didn’t want her kids to see it (either).”
“Producers had pitched for Kim or Lisa to do the intervention, but Brandi refused… she felt Kim doing it would be ‘the blind leading the blind’ because of her own past issues,” another source added.”
So there you have it – there is something Brandi WON’T do for attention. Whodaguessed.
Meanwhile Brandi continues to claim that she was falling into a depression because of a fight with her father over the Oscar dress.
At the time of the Oscars, Brandi was gleefully telling everyone that her dad liked the dress but thought it exposed too much of the girls.
This is what she shared on twitter last February:
Now she’s saying he stopped talking to her over the dress. It’s hard to keep up.

Hello race fans..
I didn’t get a full recap written for this show this week. Here is where it wound up this week though.
The Detour was to either dress up a camel, for a beauty contest or do some food prep for a wedding feast. Not just any regular camel though, the camel had to be perfect as set fourth in some guidelines given. Perfect nose, eyes the right distance apart, the right hump, hair, even the feet. Sound familiar? The food prep was just that. A bunch of chickens (already defeathered ad ready, they didn’t have to do that) and then serve a meal to the wedding party..
Then they come upon a double u-turn, once they find the right place. These teams must really be spread apart because those dumbass Divorced were right there but they strapped on their packs, and went running a half mile down the road looking for the right location. Fighting all the while. ER uturned tje animals because they don’t like being lied to. Divorced u turned the bunnies (Wives) because the girls stole their spot on standby back at the airport a couple episodes ago.
Then they have to drive to a white water rafting water park, where they find a roadblock. The idea is to ride those rapids, in a raft, collecting 3 flags along the way. They all get it done.
The bunnies, who were saved last time have to do a speedbump. They have to swim across a wavepool and climb out of it on a ladder, with this huge wave pummeling them every 90 seconds. Once they do that, they can take the rafting trip.
Then teams have to drive up this long winding road.. One that race drivers might enjoy and practice on. I know I would.
They all get to the pit stop, ER is first, they each win a car, any in Ford’s lineup.. They can choose. Bunnies come in last again, due to being uturned and having to do the speedbump. They’re gone.
That’s about it this week Racefans.. Now, on to Survivor.
Welcome back, Castaways.. Last week was a double elimination episode and both Vytas and Tina were sent to redemption Island. When they return to camp, they are all apologizing to Katie as if none of them voted to send her mom to RI. Puh-Leeze. I’m so sick of the fakery of this show. Just come right out and say it, Tyson… “I’m afraid of your little old mommy, she had to go”. I really don’t know which ones I hate more. The liars, or the honest ones. I’ve yet to see one of the latter much on this show so I guess it’s the liars.
Laura and her daughter are scheming now that they are the only pair left. It doesn’t matter, the following day they will talk and Ciera has convinced herself that she can get further without her mom there. If mom is still there, they will follow each other out the door to RI. The only thing Ciera has going for her that I have seen is the social game. I guess sometimes that’s enough but if she’s going to prove herself right, about being able to go further than her mom, then she better start winning some challenges. I hope for her sake, they aren’t all puzzles because she is terrible at them.
Yes, this tired twist is still there, and I do mean Tired. It’s Aras, Vytas, and Tina. Rules are the same, first two to finish the the game, stay another day. Loser is now, the first member of the jury. I guess that part has changed. I like it when they just get voted out and that’s it. How long is this RI crapfest going to continue? We will pretend that I support the idea of those who got outsmarted being given a chance to get back in the game, kind of like every kid gets a trophy just for showing up (but I really don’t support it).
Probst describes the game which is a maze game. Each must use a grappling hook to retrieve 3 bags, each of which containing a ball, that they will use to run through this maze using ropes to tilt the maze on a pivot. We’ve seen this many times before. The first two to land the ball in that center hole, wins. Second survives RI, loser, again, goes to the jury. The winner still gets to hand out a clue to the hidden Idol (that Tyson already has as he will remind us of several times during this episode as he laments whether or not he’ll reveal that fact). So, they get started. The brothers really suck at this as Tina, the lil old lady, gets all 3 of her bags with 4 tries before they retrieve one. C’mon fellas, You got beat by a mom. You will note that there are holes along the pathway. IF the ball falls out as they are maneuvering this thing, they have to start all over. Tina gets started on hers first followed by the brothers. As Tina gets to the end, they are working to catch up. Guess what happens… She almost has it and loses the ball to that hole just outside the center path. Has to start all over. I think one or the other of the brothers had to start all over as well. How about if we save the suspense.. Vytas wins and Tina is second. She had o start over and Still beat the golden boy, Aras. Here is another thing I wish would end on this show. As they are all lined up, Probst begins with his psychobabble. Vytas gave the clue to Katie, who did not burn it. Anyway, Probst is probing the brothers about the first time they faced off in that sumo challenge. How did it make you feel, Aras, when your brother sucker punched you? Hey, all’s fair in love and survivor. BuhBye, King Aras. Next.
Pre Immunity Challenge Chatter
You know the drill.. They decide, in this 7 person alliance, that is everyone but Katie, who to send out next before they even play the game. Tyson is clearly running things by now and is quite proud of himself. He, the two floaters, Hayden and Caleb, are talking about the 4 guys (with the other floater, Gervace) voting for Laura and hopefully getting someone else to vote for her so Ciera doesn’t have to vote for her mom. The idea is to pick off the women. Ciera and Laura discuss their options and as I said earlier, she believes she has a better shot at getting at least to the final 3, than her mom does. In order for Laura to make final 3, she will have to win every challenge. Laura is a proud mama for her daughter finally standing o her own two feet.
The next morning, Katie decides it is time to go find that idol. Her finding the idol is a huge threat to Laura.. Katie sets off to find the idol and Laura follows her. Katie has her digging in the wrong place, Relax Katie, there is no idol in the right place. It’s a shifting game says Tyson who now feels he has to get Ciera on board with voting her mom out. He pitches it to her, she seems agreeable to the idea (we already know this and know that Tyson has the idol).
Players are each standing on a little platform leaning back over the water while holding on to a rope with knots tied in it. Every 5 minutes they have to move their grip further down the rope so they are leaning further out. Last one hanging on, wins immunity.
They begin on Go and the first one out id Hayden.. I don’t even think he’d trying at this point. Next to peter out is Caleb, I don’t think he’s trying either. Then at the third knot, the third floater drops out, Gervace. Followed closely by Ciera.. Monica is steady as a rock. It will come down to she and Tyson.. He doesn’t need it so he lets it go, Monica wins. She wins immunity and reward. The reward is junk food. Burgers, cheesburgers, fries, pop, etc. She can chose one other to share it with, or apparently, give it up completely so all of the other 7 can eat it. They have to do it right there on the platform though. That’s what she does, gives it to everyone else. Of course Probst has to inject his motive questions. Did she do it for points or just to be nice. Caleb said probably both but who cares why, they all enjoyed it. By the way, this move usually comes back to bite the giver in the ass. No one is to be trusted on this game. Monica should know that by now.
Post Challenge Chatter
They all thank Monica for lunch and then we get right down to it.. Katie and Ciera are talking and Ciera is feeding her a line about who is voting for her mom. That part was accurate. The two have pinky sworn to keep each other’s secrets and Katie tells her that she has found the idol. Ciera calls her a liar because SHE has it (neither one of them do) but, Katie fell for it hook line and sinker. Somewhere in all this the idea comes up to split the vote. Let’s get to tribal..
As the probsting is going on, Probst is convinced that Katie is the target because she’s not currently part of the cool kids club. Once she is gone, then the cool kids can start picking one another off. It comes up that Ciera and Laura are the only pair left and they are blood. None of this really matters, the decision has already been made but, just for the fun of it, they vote anyway. Laura by 7 to 1, she voted for Katie, is on her way back to RI. Wasn’t it sweet of Ciera to write (Mom 😦 ) under her mom’s name she she voted her mom off the game?
SAMCRO recap here
Many of you who read my posts, especially when the subject of Autism comes up, have seen me talk about my YouTube friend, Janet. She does show recaps with her daughter on the game type shows. Survivor, Amazing Race, X-Factor, etc. She has a 21yo son who is on the spectrum as I’ve heard it called and she has even posted here once or twice. Much of what I think I know about it, comes from talking to her. Anyway, she is also an animal lover and last week, had to say goodbye to their pet chihwawa, Verdell, or as I called him, Devil Dog. He was diabetic and she and her family cared for him for about 14 years. Here is the little guy’s epilog..
