Brandi Glanville caught in a Half Lie by NMD
Brandi Glanville would like to turn things around. She’s half-apologized in a video, half-apologized in her blogs, and called in to Watch What Happens Live to tell her side of things after an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showed her in a drunken stupor slurring mean comments at castmate Joyce. Add in some racial stereotypes comments as she was marginalizing Joyce from the group, and she set off a firestorm of angry viewers. This culminating in the Hard Rock of Tampa firing her from an appearance at a partly last weekend – making it clear that they didn’t want her anywhere near her brand. It was a sharp slap of reality. But Brandi isn’t one to let reality get in her way. Last night she tweeted:
Brandi Glanville @BrandiGlanville
Big thanks to the Hard Rock in Tampa for the apology and for paying me in full 2 basically just hang out with my bffs in Del Ray #paidvaca🙂
Note that she didn’t tag the Hard Rock in her tweet that implied that they regretted their actions. Sneaky, sneaky. But one of her followers tweeted them. Their response: The only apology we provided was for short notice.Thx for accepting @brandiglanville.
Ohhh – snap. And then for further clarification,
Sem Hard Rock TPA @SHRTampa
We always deliver on our contracts. And yes, the only apology given was for short notice to everyone.
Brandi then decided to bash Joyce a little more:
Just got called by ANOTHER magazine saying Jacqueline gave yet Another story about me needing rehab! Shocker!I think she is obsessed with me
Why does Brandi think it’s okay to tweet or talk about her castmates yet they shouldn’t have her name on their lips? They are on a show together. Personally, I think Joyce is braver than most of the others. Brandi must not have anything on her that she can spill to the press. She’s got the Richard sisters running scared. And speaking of that strange relationship, Brandi finished her night with an appearance on Arsenio. She got to do a little pole dancing and Lisa bashing with Kim and Kyle Richards. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
It’s too bad for the ladies that viewers are still tuning out. Even though the latest episode of RHOBH had a tiny ratings boost, overall the season is averaging 1,780,000 viewers per episode, down from an average of 2,090,000 at this time last season. (bravoratings.com). It’s not dismal – but it’s not good either. Now that Housewife supporter Andy Cohen is no longer in the decision seat at Bravo, one has to wonder what the future holds for this franchise.
Brandi, Kyle and Kim on Arsenio by BobbiNJ
Watching Kim, Kyle and Brandi on Arsenio Hall. They walk out and Kim and Kyle hug him and give him a kiss. Brandi jumps on him and wraps both legs around him. He can barely hold her because she’s at least twice his size.
They sit down and he brings up the black comment. Brandi said she doesn’t remember exactly how it went and she is so nervous. She said she didn’t know how inappropriate it was until after the fact. She just thought it was funny but once the reaction started she really is sorry and now gets it. “It won’t happen again.”
Kyle says Brandi says a lot of things that make her gasp but she’s not a racist. Kim agrees with her. But, that Brandi feels terrible about it now. He asks about alcohol on the set and Brandi says there’s a lot “for her.” They call it “reality juice” and Brandi claims Kyle made that up. She laughingly calls Kyle a liar when she denies it and then said she made it up then and forgot.
He asks Kim about her sobriety and what that environment is like for her. She says she hasn’t had a drink for two years in December. Brandi said she’s drinking Kim’s part. Kim said she was sober when they started the show and Kyle was concerned it would be hard for her. Kim said she had it covered until everyone started drinking and fighting and she relapsed on the show. Rehab helped her so much and everyone has been so supportive. Arsenio remarks on how the sisters seem to have come closer as a result of the show. Kyle thinks they haven’t been as good as they are today since they were teenagers.
They get into Brandi’s feud with Perez Hilton…..and I just don’t care. The sisters had not heard about it. I’m not going to write this up.
Photo association – he puts up a picture of Lisa. Kyle laughs and says “chess player.” Brandi says “strategic.” Kim says “fake.” People oooooooo. He asks for a definition of Wiccan. Kyle says she says she’s a witch. So he puts up a picture of Carlton. B says “sexy.” Kyle says “scary. She scares me and she’s not nice to me.” Kim says “spiritual.” They are asked if she’s bisexual and B says no. Brandi says she’s been with a woman. She’s very attracted to Carlton and Yolanda. And on and on… B claims Kyle has giant boobs.
They went on a trip to Puerto Rico and they say parts went very well and parts went very wrong. Kim thought they were in Mexico the whole time. Then they start talking about a stripper pole and ……on and on. Takes place during the trip on the pole on the bus. Sick of Brandi’s raunchy humor. He asks if she’s ever been on a stripper pole and she asks “What kind?” Ha ha. Then they bring out a pole; Kim points out her daughter is in the audience; they turn on music and Kim starts twirling around the pole.
End of segments with the HWs! I apologize for any errors
Top Chef (S11E11) “Giving It The College Try” by BB
The contestants walk into the Top Chef kitchen to find Padma and Musician/Restaurateur Questlove. He is on the quest for the perfect tasting drumstick. They have thirty minutes to prepare drumstricks from the array displayed on the table (chicken/turkey/goose/squab). So the chefs rush up to the table to grab the type of drumsticks they want to cook. Shirley falls, Nicholas stops to pick her up, so he is left with some itty bitty quail drumsticks. He will use a frog leg recipe because they are so small. The winner will have immunity. Justin says he’s going to knock it out of the park, which he knows he can. Funny, Justin keeps telling us how good he is, but he’s been at the bottom on the challenges several times if not more. Carlos has no clue about how to cook drumsticks.
The least favorite quickfire dishes according to Questlove are Nicholas, Justin, and Carlos (who had bones shards in his). The favorites were Carrie’s squab, Nina’s game hens, and Brian. The winner who get immunity is Carrie.
For the elimination challenge, the chefs will be serving 500 at freshman orientation in the dining hall of Louisiana State University. The winner will win a Toyota Rav 4. They will be staying in the dorms the night before. Shirley wants to give her Rav 4 to her mom if she wins it. They are greeted at LSU by two peppy freshman tour guides. Some of the chefs never attended college so they don’t understand the college experience. Some are excited to go back to their college days.
The next day, all the chefs show up at the dining hall and figure out what’s in the kitchen and who’s taking what stations (hot or cold). They have to figure out how to replicate things to feed 500 students. Carlos starts being a little difficult about what he does and doesn’t want to do (like not using the pizza oven) and Shirley thinks his true personality is starting to come out. Watching the chefs cook, I can’t imagine trying to prepare enough food for 500 people. Justin decides to fancy it up and to not “cook down” to the students (like chicken tenders and mac and cheese). Nina doesn’t think the college kids are going to like Justin’s fancy food. Carrie has immunity so she agrees to take a cold station and is making broccoli salad with yogurt dressing. She wants to make something healthy even if the college kids might not like it. Right before serving time, assistants show up to help serve the food.
Chow time. Everybody is waiting in line for Brian’s shrimp cakes. Nobody wants Carrie’s broccoli salad. Carlos needs the oven for his fish and asks Nicholas to move his plates out. Shirley made Roast Beef with Potato Puree and Fire Roasted Tomato Relish. Nina made Buttermilk Fried Chicken with Sweet Corn Puree and Pickled Onions. Brian prepared Shrimp Cake and Spinach with Chipotle Aioli. Nicholas made Rosemary Roasted Pork, Parmesan Grits and Bacon Brown Sugar Gravy. Carrie made Broccoli Salad with Herbed Yogurt Sauce and Pita Bread. Justin prepared Marinated Gulf Shrimp, Cauliflower, Asparagus and Garlic Puree. There aren’t many people at his station or Carrie’s. Stephanie made Spicy Tomato Soup with Pimento Cheese Sandwich. When the judges show up at Carlos’ station, they have to wait for their food. Carlos tells Tom and Emeril that Nicholas stole his oven to warm his plates. Carlos made Seared Tilapia with Chile Ancho and Mexican Coleslaw.
In the stew room, some of the chefs question Carlos’ integrity regarding his telling the judges that Nicholas stole his oven. The judges liked Shirley’s roast beef, Brian’s shrimp cake, and Carlos’ fish even though they had to wait for it. They didn’t like Stephanie’s sloppy cheese sandwiches or that she put them in the bowls of soup (which they thought tasted good). Gail didn’t understand Justin’s dish and thought it just tasted of garlic and nothing else. They also weren’t crazy about Nina’s dish because she was making part of it when they went through the line. Finally, if Carrie didn’t have immunity, she would be in the bottom because of her easy broccoli salad.
Padma comes in and asks Shirley, Brian and Carlos to join them. One of them will be the winner. Brian is told the students likes his dish the best. Shirley tells them since nobody else wanted the pizza oven (Carlos), she was stuck with it and decided not to make pizza, but to make roast beef. Shirley wins the car. I’m glad Carlos didn’t win.
Stephanie, Nina and Justin are called in as the bottom three. This is Justin’s fourth straight time in the bottom. Stephanie had a lumpy cheese sandwich. Justin tells them he tried to make his type of food and not make college type food. He says he was being way too . . . and Gail says “chefy?” and Justin says pretty much. The judges tell Nina the students didn’t like the corn served with her chicken. The chefs are dismissed so the judges can deliberate. Justin’s food was consistently flavorless. Stephanie’s cheese sandwich wasn’t really pimento cheese and it was unappetizing. One batch of Nina’s corn was good, but one wasn’t. Who will be going home? Justin is asked to pack his knives and go. He admits he made a mistake. I’m glad he’s out. I’m tired of hearing him tell us how good he is when he keeps landing on the bottom. He’s pretty sure he can redeem himself in the Last Chance Kitchen.
Last Chance Kitchen: Justin vs. Louis. Louis is asked to cook a dish using ingredients from Justin’s area, Louisiana, and Justin is asked to cook a dish using ingredients from Louis’ area, Northern California. Problem is Justin was born and raised in California, so I would say he has the advantage. I guess it doesn’t matter, because Louis beats Justin, only because Justin’s sardines were a little dry. Bye Bye for good, Justin.
Brandi Glanville’s Podcast #6 by Kit9
Brandi says she doesn’t take money from tabloids. She sings. Badly. Claims she can rap. Thankfully, doesn’t try to prove it.
Takes calls. Brandi says she’s scared of getting hate calls but all the callers are friendly(it’s called screening, Brandi) Q: Who is Brandi’s Favorite HW of OC? A: Tamra. Q: Is Kim R. really sober? A: Yes, she’s doing really well . Q: Third caller is nuts. A huge Brandi fan, her husband cheated on her and she despises Leann. Caller got a Twitter account just to torment Leann. Caller once tweeted, “whores need sleep” after Leann tweeted she was going to sleep. Brandi laughs hysterically. Caller has no question, just rants for 3 min.
Q. What is up with Kyle? Brandi says she does think Kyle is a good person. Says it’s taken a long time to get where they are now. Brandi says, “We aren’t best friends or anything but we’re trying to get along right now”. Caller bashes Kyle and Brandi says she sees where the caller “is coming from”, doesn’t defend Kyle. Q: What does she do to stay in shape? A: Pilates, because, she says, she’s lazy. Suggests going for walks and taking the stairs(and being born with genes that make you super lean and 5′ 10″ helps, too). Q: Caller is stay at home mom, Brandi says being a mom is so rewarding. Says her ex couldn’t wait to get out of the house and away from the kids in the morning and was useless when she left them with him for even a few minutes(says Brandi who had a nanny while married).
Guest: Michael Yo from OMG! Insider. He and Brandi are friends. Start talking about cursing. Brandi says she grew up in a curse filed home. Michael says he rarely cusses and that he would NEVER curse in front of his parents and it freaks him out when he sees other people doing it. Brandi says if her kids cursed at her she’d “smack them upside their heads”.
Brandi says she has a whole chapter in her book about men who can’t even commit to a plant. Michael says he has a plant. A fake plant. He’s a comedian and has been on Chelsea Handler. Brandi says Handler called her an “over-botoxed cougar from the Valley” and Brandi pretty much concurs. Brandi says she actually likes Chelsea and thinks she’s funny. Brandi claims she doesn’t actually hate anyone except maybe child molesters. Talk of hate, of course, sets Brandi off on this week’s rant against social media. Professor Brandi says she “used to” fight back against Twitter hate(by “used to” she means last Wednesday).
Brandi starts talking Astrology again. Hmm, well, at this late stage in the podcast, most of Brandi staples have been covered…anti Twitter talk, check. Astrology, check. So, what’s missing? This week’s dose of raunch, that’s what! Brandi wants to know if Michael’s penis is stereotypical of black men or Asian-he’s both-and he says the only thing Asian about him is his eyes. Brandi, again, says that the stereotype about black men is true based on her having slept with two black men. Michael wants details and she says one of them was so big he had to have his condoms custom made(there’s such a service? Really?).
He wants to know if she liked his large size and Brandi says she got used to his size but that it was painful for a while. Brandi says that skinny penises are not “her friend” and that how a man uses his mouth and hands is what gets her to ‘the next level”. She says the guy she’s dating(the “angry Mexican”) now she “can’t quit” because of something he does to her in bed(who else is for stabbing themselves in the ears?). Brandi again says she loves tall, dark and handsome and that she couldn’t even imagine dating a blond guy.
