Brandi Glanville Claims Lisa Vanderpump Was Bankrupt And Living In The Valley


Brandi Glanville is spilling the beans about her former BFF Lisa Vanderpump’s past, and Glanville alleges Lisa was once almost bankrupt and not living the life she portrays on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “On our show, there are certain people who want to project this perfect persona like there’s nothing wrong in the world,” Brandi said during her PodcastOne show this week.

“Like Lisa Vanderpump used to live deep in the Valley and was filing for bankruptcy, and she doesn’t want to talk about that. That’s interesting to me,” Brandi says.

Vanderpump lets Bravo’s cameras capture her $10 million, 8,000 square foot Beverly Hills mansion, while some of the other women on the show live in more modest homes. Brandi has even admitted she rents her house.

According to CNW, Vanderpump is estimated to be worth $65 million, while Glanville is reportedly worth only $1 million. The ladies RHOBH co-star Kyle Richards is worth $30 million.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

  • omg woman, stop it already. How does that make her look bad… she was poorer once, oh no…

    Last year you spilled the beans on Adrienne, this year Lisa… I would never ever ever have you for a friend. So I do hope Yoli & Kyle are ready.

      What a jerk Brandi is..sounds like she is soo desperate to stay on this show..she really has problems upstairs!! She should keep her mouth shut..because Karma is a bi#$h!!

  • Peggy C

    AGAIN, if this is true, it was possibly told in confidence to a friend. Then big mouth Brandi has to blab the info to hurt and embarrass Lisa. STFU Brandi. You suck!!!!

  • Aunt Barb

    OMG woman you are so disgusting. I have no idea what you do for a living but whatever it is you must spend most of your time making up or digging up trash about the people you are most jealous of. You are trash and you and the witch are a great couple. Please get on your brooms and fly away.

    • Erica

      “Please get on your brooms and fly away.” lol! Love it! Brandi is such a trash box. I hope her new book flops.

  • Chris

    Sounds like the BIG green monster is coming out of Brandi, AGAIN!

  • Deed

    IF this is true, Brandi, ( and I bet no one cares, just like me) that was then and this is now. Why do you continue to insist on dragging up “dirt” on Lisa?
    If she was once living in the valley and filing bankruptcy, well good for her! Look how far she has come. Will you stoop at nothing to continue ( to no avail)
    To try to make Lisa look bad? Don’t you know just how bad this continuous vendetta of yours to try to drag Lisa through the mud on one nonissue after another makes YOU look? READ your comments Brandi. We are sick of this & no one is buying it. Seems to me you really need to focus on your OWN financial stability…. House to house, rental to rental, problems with all your mean sneaky landlords, can’t afford medical insurance (!!!!) “struggling single mom” …… Please, that is a real insult to the women out there making minimum wage or jobless while you carry around your $2000 handbags. That is despicable. Just give it up. You are SO annoying in every possible way.

    • Joan

      I couldn’t agree with you more Deed. To be a struggling mom seeing Brandi walking around with those clothes and accessories and THEN saying how much she struggles is a total insult to those working moms that have to work one or even more jobs just to make ends meet. I know Brandi can’t work because how in the world would she have a job and be able to attend all those social things she goes to with the cast?Besides, how does she live? This show must be paying her good so she is more than insulting to those truly struggling.

  • Lisa

    Brandi, why can’t you stop being such a b**ch. Just for once, shut your spiteful mouth. You have practically lost any fans you’ve once had.

  • deonn

    what a piece of trash this girl is. brandi please exit

  • Who cares that Lisa was bankrupt at one time????? She pulled herself up and look at Lisa now! And if she doesn’t want to talk about it, who cares? Maybe that was a very dark time in her life and she doesn’t want to be reminded. Brandi you need to stop! You talk sh*t about EVERYONE! Take a long hard look in the mirror and focus on the person staring back at you. I started out really liking you but you are becoming a raging b*tch! I honestly think you are jealous of ALL the ladies on the show and that’s why you can’t have a real friendship with any of them. Let go of all the bitterness,anger and jealousy! You’d be A LOT happier if you did.

  • Teri

    there’s no shame going through a hard time. But, if this were true, it seems that Cedric or Bernie would have spilled these beans way before now.

  • Cin

    poor Brandi…. poor poor Brandi…… what a slug you are…..

  • Becky

    If it’s true that Lisa was not rich long ago – so what! The fact that she worked hard and became successful and rich is amazing. Only Brandi would think it’s a dig.

  • fresafresca

    Even if this were true (which remains to be seen, Lisa is denying it) it’s pretty common for people to not talk about a past where they were broke and bankrupt. Right now in the present moment, Lisa is definitely rich and definitely not going bankrupt. The show is about their lives today for the most part, it doesn’t get very deep into anyone’s past. Who cares ? Brandi is bitter, vindictive and grasping at straws to “embarrass” Lisa over something that is kind of meaningless. If anything, if this were true it actually shows Lisa in a positive light! Going from supposedly broke and bankrupt in the Valley, to rich and famous in Beverly Hills in a few years time, is quite an accomplishment.

  • getreal

    Is this Brandi’s idea of a bombshell revelation? What does it have to do with anything? It only makes Brandi look even more pathetic. What’s next? Will she reveal that Lisa used to drive a Toyota Camry 30 years ago? Or maybe that Lisa once ate a corn dog?….OOooooOOhh, what huge, huge news.

  • This show used to be enjoyable until Brandi (and now Carlton) came along. I really hope the producers of RHOBH read these blog comments and see why the ratings have gone down. Watching all this high school negativity affects my mood as a viewer and it’s not interesting at all. I can see why Eddie cheated on her. I wouldn’t be able to live day to day with such a toxic person. Brandi’s gotta go!

  • Joan

    Wonder when we get another “apology” from Brandi blaming it all on the fact that she can’t control her mouth? As I have said before, Brandi is a joke, a bad and pathetic joke. Leann has more class in her little toe than Brandi. As it was said, I sure hope the producers read these comments and realize that they are losing viewers because of Brandi and the “ever insulted” Carlton! I used to watch this show faithfully but now since loser Brandi and poor, poor Carlton(joke), when I see it on the guide for shows, I quickly pass it by and go watch something else that is more interesting like watching paint dry.

  • Teri

    I don’t believe Brandi.

    But, I have to give credit where credit is due. She’s very good at what she does, which is lying. The girl is good at it. She had me beliving her last season.
