|Two time NY Times Best Selling Author Brandi Glanville|
Hello reality television fans! What can I say? It's been a hot minute since I have felt the urge to post on a Housewives series. If you have been watching the latest season of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills on Bravo TV you probably have been just as tired as I have been with the same old formula.
This season we see the emergence of two new additions, soap stars/actresses Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna. That's the only thing that is new for #RHOBH besides the pack finding a new target to " gang up on " per usual. Is a group of friends discussing the behavior of another friend to her face a " gang up" ? I am not so sure. Anyway...This season the target seems to be Brandi Glanville and Twitter has been on fire with team so and so. I just have to say many of you are under the impression that what we are seeing is " reality" when in fact we are seeing a story line manipulated by producers resulting in one dimensional characters. I hope you all are smarter than that by now. We left off on the latest episode with a fight between Kyle Richards, her sister Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville. It is of my opinion the this last episode could have gonna a completely different way if Kyle had just graciously opted out of a confrontation with Brandi instead of choosing the gay mixer as an opportunity for camera time. If you really paid attention, regardless of what team you may be on , an apology never goes well when it's peppered with a "but". I personally as a viewer saw no indication that Brandi was seeking drama with Kyle...to me she seemed nervous and hopeful that this , as Kim also thought, would be an opportunity to set aside differences with Kyle and move forward. I honestly think that Brandi is getting a bum rap this season... producers are seeking to show her in a certain light. I also think that many of the seasoned actresses on the " reality series" have the game down and aren't being really " real".
|Donald Trump and Brandi Glanville #CelebrityApprentice|
If you have watched Brandi on Celebrity Apprentice ( where she received accolades from The Donald himself) or have listened to her pod cast one show #unfiltered you would know that the producers of #RHOBH are showing her how they see fit for their agenda. Basically only drinking at social events ( which we all do ). Where is The NY Times two times best selling author, mother, and radio host? No where to be seen. You are getting a one dimensional character not representational of the who the person really is which is unfair however Brandi is smart enough to know what she signed on for. Regarding the other ladies... I feel we rarely see true moments and it is hard to decipher reality from crocodile tears given the majority of the ladies resumes as seasoned actresses.
Also it is of my opinion that Brandi's brashness and being sexy/single plays on the insecurities of the other ladies adding fuel to the fire.Do I agree with everything Brandi says when she is drinking ? No. Do I think that the majority of her scenes and placement can be contributed to editing to suite a an unreal reality ? Yes. It's funny to me that Kyle is just now bringing up past issues with Brandi after they moved forward this season. Also her dig at Brandi about being friends with her sister Kim " for six months" as if that is is not possible ( after filming for a few years ) to become friends in real life with someone in that amount of time...which we all know is bullshit. There is no amount of time that it takes to develop a close friendship... it just takes trust and loyalty. Kyle's own sister , regardless of what you think is going on with her or not, says otherwise as well. If this blog is coming off as if I am defending Brandi...I am. I think people get too caught up in a show where the producers wants you to pigeon hole someone ( if only for a season ) as a character for their own creative purpose. Everyone, in my honest opinion, from watching this show from season one, has been guilty of the same behaviors ( maybe not to the same extent ) as Brandi so why are they getting a free pass?
It's disappointing to see grown women act so immaturely and also not use communication for what it's intended for. I know that people watch #RHOBH for the drama and the opulence but it seems like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is stagnate as a series with the only real changes being a couple of new women added to the mix. I am sure that Brandi is laughing all the way to the bank with her many new business ventures...that's if her ex Eddie Cibrian doesn't try and take it all ( allegedly). I will be interested to see if the reunion sheds any light on this hot mess of a show and if Brandi is allowed to plead her case and speak her truth...until next time In the words of Brandi Glanville herself #ByeFelica.
