Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Star Brandi Glanville has been making headlines a lot lately! Between the her legal troubles with co-star Adrienne Maloof or her dirty divorce drama with Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes, there’s only one person that’s been there through it all with Brandi. Her BFF of 16 years, Jennifer Gimenez. When we first saw Jennifer appear on RHOBH, if you were like me, I took a second look and thought, ‘I’ve seen her on something…’ yes, Jennifer has appeared on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab and Sober House on VH1.
Brandi and Jennifer are SO close that Radar reports when Brandi attended therapy sessions with LeAnn Rimes, Jennifer sat next to her. “Jennifer is like a family member to me. She’s really been my rock through my divorce, through everything. When I went to therapy with [Eddie and LeAnn], Jennifer sat in with me because she’s my other half right now,” Brandi told Radar. “I would do anything for her. We’re just one big misfit family. I depend on her…I lean on her and I need her. She keeps me sane when I start to go crazy. She calls me out when I’m not right and she validates me when I need it.”
It seems Jennifer feels the same way. “In my toughest, most darkest time, she and my mom threw me into treatment,” Jennifer says. “If it wasn’t for them, I doubt I would be alive today. I would take a bullet for her. People get the wrong idea about Brandi…she is a loving and caring woman, a great mother to her two boys…she LOVES her boys, and a great friend. She’s very generous, supportive and truthful.” Jennifer continues.
“The negative stuff people say about Brandi, it’s not true. If they knew Brandi like I do they wouldn’t believe the bullish*t,” Jennifer said. “Jennifer’s my voice of reason in so many ways. She lived with me for a year, and my boys love her. She’s my best friend and almost like a therapist to me!” Brandi added.
