Brandi Glanville Speaks Out About Reports She Has A Drinking Problem


After previews for the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills showed Brandi Glanville heavily intoxicated, along with Brandi’s co-star Joyce Giraud telling her she needs rehab, Brandi is finally speaking about the matter. “There are all these articles now, like does Brandi need rehab? I’ve never claimed to be sober. Never. Not in my life,” Brandi said during her Podcast One show. “I do celebrate on my birthdays, god forbid. I went out with a bunch of my friends. I was tripping while we were sipping. I had a little too much to drink, we went dancing and then we went home.”

Photos emerged of Brandi being carried out of a restaurant while celebrating her 41st birthday last month. “There are a couple ladies on the show that are going around trying to discredit me,” she said, adding that the trip to Palm Springs made her want to drink more. “We’re on vacation. I’m having some drinks and sometimes with these ladies, your only friend in the room is a drink.”

Brandi explained she never drinks in front of her children. “I take care of a household [and] pay all the bills. I don’t have help, and I take care of these two little kids. I don’t know how I’d get anything done if I was just drunk all the time,” she said of the rumors she has a drinking problem. “I do enjoy drinking. Sometimes I overindulge, but I don’t drink when I have my kids.”

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.

    Eddie these children desperately need you. Again we saw a house full of dog crap. Your X needs help but your children are in peril. DO something.

    Maybe she should go to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting and ask them if binge drinking is considered having a problem. I’m willing to bet that there will be a few binge drinkers attending that could answer that question for her.

    Brandi wants to blame a few of her castmates for discrediting her, yet fails to mention that it was Bravo producers who wanted an intervention and to film it. No one is forcing her to “overindulge” to the point of exposing her tampon string — that’s all on her. It also almost sounds as if she’s blaming her own sons for going to their dad’s and leaving her to drink. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she loses all custody of her kids someday if she doesn’t take any action towards sobriety. But, then again, that might be her master plan all along — to get her own re-hab show. SICK.

    Agree with both post above, Brandi Over indulges Wayyyy too Much, she can keep telling herself she doesn’t have a drinking problem, pictures don’t lie. Joyce was spot on.
