RHOD star Brandi Redmond is sharing that she is ready to let her feud with Stephanie Hollman go.
“The wounds become open all over again when you’re watching it,” she shared in a new interview. “I don’t want to put myself [back] in that place.”
The former friends sat down on this week’s episode for the first time since their fight.
“I kind of want to jump through the screen and fix it,” Brandi says. “I wish I could go back and tell myself, you know, not to close off, to communicate more.”
Brandi revealed that she and Stephanie are giving each other space while their feud plays out on the show, sharing “I love yous” at the start of the season with plans to reconnect after this week’s episode.
“It made us stronger,” she tells ET of the fight. “As much as I thought she was hurting me, I was hurting her by what I was doing. I never wanted to be a mean girl. I just wanted to put up this wall … to see, hey, are you going to miss me? Do you realize what you’ve done to me?”
“There were definitely more things that led up to it,” Brandi says of what caused the rift. “Some of it seemed so petty, and that’s one of the things we talk about, just the petty BS. I felt like I was being replaced by Cary [Deuber], and there were things that kind of escalated with that, as well.”
But after their sit-down on Monday’s episode the pair are back to their old ways, which throws LeeAnne Locken for a loop. “LeeAnne and Stephanie don’t get along,” Brandi noted. “Stephanie and I, we basically would always defend each other. We would have each other’s back, and I think for the first time, I’m kind of pulling away, letting her deal with her mess.”
“But I’m not gonna lie, I sit there and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, LeeAnne, this is not the way you communicate with Stephanie,” she added. “She does not communicate that way.’ And that’s part of the reason that I don’t explode with [Stephanie], because I know how sensitive she is.”
Are you happy Brandi and Stephanie finally made up?
