Brandi Glanville Podcast Recap by Kit9
Guest, Carlton Gebbia
Introduces Carlton as a really good friend. Carlton was the only HW that gave Brandi money for Celebrity Apprentice. The only HW’s Brandi called for $ were Yolanda and Carlton. Yo said yes but there was some “time constraint” and she couldn’t get a hold of her. Brandi says Carlton gave her “thousands and thousands of dollars”. Carlton responds with a noise I’d hoped to never have to hear again, a baby-voiced, “Yay!” (freaking barf).
Brandi asks her reaction to Andy’s apology. She was happy and felt validated by it and says that both Andy and Lisa V said she got a bad edit. Brandi thinks it’s hard to show all sides of all of them and that they each get something attached them…she’s “drunk Brandi”, Carlton is the “sexy witch”. But, Carlton complains that everyone else doesn’t get treated that way and that it’s biased. Brandi immediately reverses herself and agrees (a record flip flop from the Queen of flip flopping!).
Carlton says they shot some great stuff with her kids and husband that didn’t air. Brandi asks if she’d be open to coming back because she “really needs a friend”. Carlton would come back, absolutely. Was the HW a positive experience for Carlton? Yes because it was about her and “her journey” (her journey to the stripper pole store, her journey hiring strippers, you know). Carlton met some amazing people on Twitter as a result of the show and has actually met some of them and had them to her parties. Brandi says she’d be scared to meet her fans IRL.
Brandi claims all she hears from people is how much they loved Carlton (rigghhtt, sure she does).
Does Carlton keep in touch with any ladies from the show? After sarcastically saying Kyle and the two cackling like shrews for a moment, Carlton says she heard from Yolanda and Lisa and, of course, Brandi, after the show ended. But, that it “fizzled out” with both Yo and Lisa with Carlton only hearing from them a couple times after she left. She touched base with Lisa after Andy’s comment, for instance.
Clearly trying to point out that Lisa is a phony, Brandi makes sure to note that Lisa’s comment about Carlton’s bad edit happened long after the show ended and, at that time, Lisa and Carlton were pretty close. Carlton says they were but that maybe it was a situation where they were “close on screen and then not”. Carlton says that she’s more of a committed friend.
Brandi says she is, too, and that she takes her friendships very seriously. She is a friend on and off the show and that she doesn’t fake it for tv. Brandi asks is Carlton thinks she was sort of dropped a little bit as a friend by Lisa. Carlton says she knows Lisa was very busy with her businesses and that may have factored in but that they did have a couple dinners. “But when she found out you weren’t coming back, you didn’t talk anymore”, Brandi laughs. Carlton says she did hear from Lisa and Brandi says, “ok, ok”.
Brandi whines about getting hate on Twitter but says people are nice in real life–though she does mention getting in a fight with someone that approached her at a Laker’s game for a photo and then started telling her how “crazy” her face was. Brandi controlled herself because she was with her son.
Brandi talks about how much money Carlton has and that a lot of the other ladies don’t, except Lisa and Yolanda, and that wasn’t showcased on the show. Brandi talks about Carlton’s amazing home and parties and how they may not be tea and crumpets (she’s really getting in those Lisa digs!) but that they are sexier and different and, therefore, more interesting.
Brandi thinks that’s what people tune in to see on the show–the over the top houses, the private planes (or in her case, the rented house in the Valley and her leased Range Rover) and that Carlton had all that and it frustrated her that Carlton didn’t come back when she had all these things. Carlton thinks it would have been nice to see the “glamorous side, the couture” (wait, is she conceeding that raunchy poll dancing parties aren’t glamorous?).
Brandi then whines about not being in control and blathers on about the show being a double edged sword and that you put yourself out there to be ridiculed but it also gives them a platform to sell other products and books…”and then to throw wine in people’s faces and get called an alcoholic every day” in her case (she’s actually lumping in the wine toss with things she can’t control?). She says it’s hard but you have to take the good with the bad.
Carlton decided when she agreed to do HW that she was going to show everything-all or nothing, good or bad and that she was going to show “her truth” (a ‘her truth’ flashback: threatening people with harmful spells and then denying she did). She claims, again, that she never watched the show despite someone claiming she did-referring to Kyle. Yet, two seconds later, Carlton admits she did watch a few episodes, as she puts it, “to know what was going on”.
Carlton then kisses corporate butt.., “I did love the journey, I did love working for Bravo and I don’t have any regrets” even as ugly as it got. Brandi thinks you can have regrets but you say sorry and then move forward. Carlton agrees and adds that you can’t hold onto grudges. “You should call Kyle and tell her that”, Brandi quips (right, cause it was Kyle holding onto a grudge on Poker Night when she got drunk and let her true feelings for Brandi come out. Oh, wait, no..).
Brandi asks about David. He just shot a pilot about his stock market business which explains “margin calls or whatever”. The show focuses on several women and she describes it as sexy female Wolf of Wallstreet. She says she used to work in the industry, too, and that’s how she met her husband (Ms. ‘margin calls or whatever’ worked in the stock market?). She also discusses her stab at an acting career (doesn’t mention her soft core past or her awesome porny name, Carlton Lynx). She’s a Libra so she likes the financial side as well as the artistic side (eyeroll).
Brandi asks what she does to stay in shape. She works out 3 or 4 times a week. Brandi admits she’s very lazy when it comes to working out. Carlton isn’t drinking any more and Brandi complains that she lost her drinking partner. Brandi is trying to give up soda and says the carbonation is bad for your bones.
Carlton’s friend Colette is there and she donated money to Brandi on CA, too, through something called Planet Beauty. And, for the second effing time, I have to endure Carlton’s idiotic baby voiced “Yah!”. Brandi says she doesn’t have their kind of money and Carlton says that’s going to change and then scolds her for not burying the crystal she gave her (oh, brother). Brandi’s bf gave her a rose gold and diamond ring for Christmas (wonder what he gave his other gf).
WARNING: You may want to have a bucket handy for this next part…
Brandi talks about Carlton coming back on the show because she needs somebody on her side. She tells Carlton that some crazy shit happens on the show this season and whines about it being “really tough”. Carlton thinks being in that arena without any allies is difficult. Brandi says she has Yolanda and Kim but that it’s hard because Kim is the “other scapegoat” (and by scapegoat, she means drunk) and that “if they don’t take it out on me, they take it out on Kim” (all aboard the delusional victim express!!).
She mentions that she and Kim don’t have husbands and thinks that something to do with it. Brandi then claims that when she shows up with a date, the women show her more respect and are so much kinder to her. “Is that bizarre?”, she asks. She says maybe they feel they “CAN’T ABUSE HER ANYMORE” when she’s with a man. “It’s sexist to say that, but I’ve noticed when I have a date, people are more respectful. It’s so sad” (um, gee, maybe because when you have a date, you actually try not to get fall down sloppy drunk).
Next guest is Carlton’s friend Colette, author of Twilightesque books. I don’t give two shits about her and don’t want to listen to it. Sorry. Had enough of these idiots. Kit out.
