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.”

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.

    Brandi Must GO!!!! Bravo must fire this one, how dare she think this topic is comedic?

    Brandi is RACHET! Just WOW!

  • Cin

    oh my…… so is this something she wishes for her children also? omg…. if she is on RHOBH next season I will not watch.

    • Tana

      I completely agree I will NOT and I used to love this show, especially season 1 when I was introduced to my favorite person on TV Lisa Vanderpump that is the most real woman you could ever find that would ever do reality TV. I will not watch this t next season if Brandi is on AND if “twisted sisters”, Kim & Kyle plus Yolanda, and the title for the most annoying house wife ever have to go to Joyce Girard. I truly believe they need to pull a “New Yorker” and Fire half the cast and bring Beverly Hills back up to the status IT USED TO BE!!!!!

      I certainly hope that Eddie is hearing what this woman says and does and he does something to remove his children from her influence.

    Sorry? I think I have heard this one before…MANY TIMES! Molestation is ABSOLUTELY nothing to joke about. Brandi, just go away. I have stopped watching the show as long as you and Carlton are on it. You two are total idiots and need to go!!!
