Although she is no longer a Real Housewife and was known for her controversial personality, Brandi Glanville has kept friendships with co-stars Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster, along with long-time best friend Kristen Takeman of the Real Housewives of New York City. All three stars have been in the press recently; Yolanda for her battle with Lyme disease, Kim for her two arrests and sobriety, and Kristen Taekman for the Ashley Madison scandal that her husband Josh was involved in. The New York Times best selling author recently dished about her friends to Entertainment Tonight.
When it comes to Kim Richards, Glanville says, “We do talk. I’m a friend. I’m not you know, a sober companion. Obviously I’m not a coach. You know, I’m there for her as a friend. I will always take her calls, and that’s really all I can say about it right now.”
Brandi also did confirm that Kim skipped her recent court date due to a “disgusting foot injury.” She even said, “I was like, ‘Oh my God! Go to the doctor.’ She was like, ‘I can’t.’ I think she didn’t want to go to the hospital because of the press.”
Yolanda Foster has been battling Lyme disease for the past few years and Brandi has remained close to the Dutch beauty. “She’s just not seeing any light at the end of the tunnel. She’s doing every treatment under the sun! And luckily for her, they have the money to afford these amazing treatments and they’re just not helping.”
She continues, “She’s so strong She was in surgery for 6 hours. They took lymph nodes and everything else. She’s already on the treadmill. She’s shooting ‘Housewives’… I’m like, ‘How do you do it!?’ She’s the strongest woman I know.”
And finally, Kristen and Josh Taekman. It was recent public knowledge that Josh was one of the 37 million Ashley Madison users, a site that encourages married individuals to have an affair. Brandi is known to be one of Kristen’s best friends and even attended her bachelorette party years back.
“You know, the hard thing is whether its true or not when it comes to the rumors, and I believe it’s not, going through anything in the public eye is so difficult. Even if it never healed and it’s all a lie, he’s gonna be judged for that for the rest of his life, and she’s gonna have to deal with it, and people shaking their heads going, ‘Why are you with him?'”
“It’s just unfair but at the end of the day, it’s what we signed up for. Kristen is a strong woman, and she will hold that family together no matter what.”
