Brandi Glanville Podcast by Kit9
Guests: Alison and Skip Bedell from Catch a Contractor on Spike.
The Bedell’s have a dog in the studio. Brandi says her chihuahua only likes her bf and she thinks it’s because they’re both Mexican. They talk about the show, Catch a Contractor, which is a gotcha show for bad contractors. Skip knows Adam Carolla who is also involved with the show. The show often features physical confrontations. Brandi mentions her father is a handiman/carpenter who cut off several fingers. She refers to her parents house as “little” at 2,000 sq feet(I call it “normal”).
Skip says there are many more good contractors than bad and feels the show helps get the bad ones who are damaging his profession. He has some suggestions for consumers…get estimates from several people who are licensed, go online to see if there are comlaints against them with the state licensing board.
Brandi had a contractor issue when remodeling her house with Eddie. She wanted to murder the contractor who told her to “put a rug over it” when he installed the wrong tile. Brandi asks if Skip wanted to do the show to show off his tattoos. He admits it’s a great showcase of them with his tight work shirts.
Brandi wants a similar gotcha show for deadbeat dads. Skip talks about Manny, who was a repeat offender who they’ve targetted more than once on their show. His second appearance on the show got violent when the wronged homeowner, who was also Manny’s friend and fellow US Marine, snuck back in the house and jumped him! It took most of the crew to break up the fight.
They are active on social media and live tweet the show. They say they don’t get hate mail. Brandi’s producer wants Skip to do a beefcake calendar. Which leads, predictably, to Brandi making a power tool comment. I’m suprised it took so long.
Caller and his best friend got into nasty fight and seeks Brandi’s advice because he “really looks up to” her(good god). Brandi wants to know if they were drunk at the time(a perfectly reasonable question in TamponBrandi world). Brandi doesn’t think you can hold someone accountable if they’re drinking(she said in what may be the most self serving statement. Ever).
Q: Brandi’s fav memories from being on the show? Getting close to women she’d have never met otherwise, “in real life”. She says she loves all of them for the most part and that they’re a dysfunctional family and says she’s been an asshole at times, too(she said in what may be the greatest understatement. Ever).
Q: If Brandi wasn’t on BH, which franchise would she be on? Atlanta for sure(please. She wouldn’t last two seconds!). She mentions CA and says it was so stressful it gave her panic attacks. But, that it was a good learning experience.
Q: Has Brandi ever seen the video of her modeling bathing suits three months after giving birth on youtube? No.
Q: Is Brandi is going to write another book? Yes. She’s searching for a subject because she’s written everything she can on ‘romance’. Still, she says she has a book deal in place for #3.
British caller. He says he and his friends are “obsessed” with Brandi. Brandi hopes he’s still a fan after this season. He says he’s seen the trailer for the new season and he loved it. She says they are all “so ill-behaved, it’s just sad”. Is it hard to be in reality tv? No, because she views it as a job and she has her “tv friends” and her “real friends”.
Does she see the women outside the show? She said she did hang out with Lisa when they were close. She hangs out with Yolanda and Camile. She loves Kim, calls her like a “little sister”.
He asks about Kyle and she says, “ewwww”. She says she tried with her and liked her for “about a hot second”(when she needed an ally against Lisa) but calls her a “flip flopper”. She says Kyle will “stab you in the back the second she thinks it’s good for her”(drunken pot, kettle, all that). “I like her one second and the next we’re in a fight. It’s so weird”.
Back to CA-she says it was hell and that it was “the hardest thing I’ve ever done besides getting a divorce”. She assures us that she and Kenya are going to be good tv and says Kenya is pure evil.
Caller wants to know Brandi’s diet secrets. She eats pretty much what she wants but doesn’t eat huge portions. She also doesn’t eat desert because she’d rather save the calories for alcohol(shocker!). She then tells the caller to watch the new season but don’t judge her!
Q: Would Brandi ever get back together with Eddie if he left Leann? No because she no longer has respect for him. She is dating now and her bf is watching her boys for the first time.
Brandi tells the caller this is the wildest season ever. Asked about Lisa Rinna, Brandi says she is a doll but a bit of a problem starter(apparently big sis Brandi is a-ok with Lisa throwing drinks in her little sis’s face?). Brandi then whines that Lisa R. tells people how it is-like she does- but Lisa, unlike her, gets a pass for it(gee, maybe Lisa manages to do it without being a vicious a hole).
Caller: if you can slap Lisa, why can’t you punch Sheana? Brandi says she can’t confirm she slaps Lisa(confirming the slap was phony, joking, not serious). Brandi says she beats people up in her head but she has boys and has to try to set a good example which she claims isn’t easy being around these women(and gravity. And alcohol. And tampons).
She says she doesn’t watch “that show”, VPR, anymore. She claims she never really did. They’re young and she can’t relate to them(huh? This is the woman that loves that show about 20something rich kids). She says that what goes around, comes around and Sheanna will get hers. Brandi says she doesn’t wish bad on people but that “you really do get back what you put out there in life”.
Caller: How is everyone getting along with the new housewives? Brandi can confirm she gets along really well with one of them-the other “not so much”.
