Brandi Glanville Ignites Controversy Over Molestation Joke


Brandi Glanville is known for her shocking comments and tweets, and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star may have just gone way too far. During her PodCast One show, Brandi Unfiltered, the Bravo star said that she was disappointed that she wasn’t molested as a young girl. Brandi’s guests were Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine, who has been open about his childhood, in which there were widespread molestations in his church. Luckily he was spared.

Brandi said, “I was actually stalking you online, Jim, and we have something in common! I, too, wanted to be molested as a child and was passed up.” Adding, “My sister got felt up by a principal, and nothing for me: He didn’t even look at me sideways.”

Jamieson asked Brandi, “Did you feel hurt by that?”

“Yeah,” she said. “Now looking back, I’m super-bummed. I was thinking, ‘All this and nothing?’ Super-hot and they passed me up!”

Brandi’s comment sparked outrage among the public and advocacy groups, but she claims it was all for comedy. She immediately took to Twitter to apologize.


But anti-sexual assault organization, Rape Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) doesn’t think Brandi’s joke was funny. “As any good parent would know, sexual abuse of children is nothing to laugh about,” spokesperson Katherine Hull told FOX411. “Sexual abuse should never be fodder for comedy.”
