Most viewers knew that going in to Season 3 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills there was going to be tension between former friends Brandi Glanville & Adrienne Maloof. Now, we are putting all the information we have together, to give you the FULL story. I had the chance to interview Brandi in November, and when I asked her what happened between she and Adrienne, she replied, “What you see at the Season 2 Reunion is pretty much where we pick back up in Season 3- although I have become very close with Lisa, Ken, and their family during the hiatus. I never really had a real relationship with Adrienne other than a TV friendship, but that went south when I didnt want to be a part of the ‘Lisa Take Down.’ I am not friends with Adrienne and although I have hope that one day things will be better, I find it hard to forgive when someones trys to hurt my family.”
When Season 3 began, Brandi instantly became a favorite of most viewers. Her quick wit and snarky comments made people love her! From the first episode, we knew there was tension between Brandi, Adrienne, and Lisa, and were waiting for it to play out. Before the fight between Brandi, Paul, and Adrienne aired, we reported that Adrienne tried to quit the show after the fight. “Adrienne has been very controlling about what she allows the cameras to film because she wants to project a certain image of having the perfect life,” says the insider, adding that Adrienne went “ballistic” over the filmed fight with former friend, Brandi. “Brandi felt Adrienne was being inauthentic and disregarded her wishes [to not discuss her marital problems on camera] while the two of them were at dinner,” the insider continued. “Adrienne held in her rage but when she walked off camera she screamed at Brandi and the production staff.” But there’s more- Adrienne was SO angry the source says she “called Bravo and quit the show but they held her to her contract and forced her to come back.”
When the women traveled to Ojai, we were introduced to more tension involving Brandi and Adrienne during STFU-gate. Adrienne explained to viewers that she felt she was Brandi’s “target.” Adrienne wrote in her Bravo Blog, “The dinner party in Ojai was a bit tense and heated after Brandi told me to “shut the f— up.” My intentions were to simply ask Kim why she was upset. Brandi’s language was completely inappropriate and made everyone feel uncomfortable, however, I accepted her apology and we moved on with the weekend. Unfortunately, Brandi is looking for a fight and I am her target of the moment. I’ve been trying to get along with her and not engage in unnecessary drama.”
After the Ojai trip the episode aired where the women were at Lisa’s restaurant, SUR. Kyle Richards asked Brandi what happened between her and Adrienne. Brandi revealed some of Adrienne’s “private family matters” to the group. Bravo couldn’t air what Brandi said, because Adrienne’s lawyers were involved. Allegedly, Brandi revealed that Adrienne used a surrogate, instead of carrying her children like she has claimed on camera, but that’s not all. We reported information that was released in February, “One of the Real Housewives couples is in panic mode right now because their world might come crashing down because of one side remark made by another Real Housewife that struck way closer to home than intended. Apparently this couple is barely hanging on but does not want the world to see it and were really upset when a cast member who does not even know what is going on said the couple is barely hanging on. The publicists for the couple are in damage control mode, but that is not their biggest worry. Leaks are beginning to emerge in their carefully constructed cover which was never intended for full media attention. Specifically, friends of the couple have been hinting that the couple have an open marriage and that the husband complains he has not had sex in years and that the couple, who do have children might not have actually had natural conception, especially considering the wife’s age and the age of the kids.”
Releasing someone’s medical history without their consent IS against the law, and that’s how Adrienne was able to get her lawyers involved. Many of you have wondered why the alleged surrogacy was such a big deal? Adrienne’s children weren’t aware of any of this. As for the big question of, ‘What did Brandi say?’ I can tell you EXCLUSIVELY that Brandi knew about the alleged open marriage, cheating accusations in Adrienne’s marriage, AND the alleged surrogacy.
After the episode aired, viewers were confused and wanted to know what Brandi had said. Brandi tweeted that she said, “The truth,” but she couldn’t give specifics because, “she didn’t want anymore lawyer bills.” In her Bravo Blog, Brandi wrote that she regretted what she said, because she had pissed off the wrong rich person, and what expensive trouble her mouth had gotten her into! Brandi wrote, “I said something I shouldn’t have said and I am sorry and I now regret it. I know, it’s shocking right? My mouth gets me in a lot of trouble, but this time I’ve pissed off the wrong rich person. It is so frustrating when Adrienne or her people say something about me that isn’t true or discuss me as a parent, I think she has met my kids one time. Normally I would laugh it off. I mean I’ve had my fair share of negative stories written about me through my divorce. But when the lies involve my children, like any good mother, ALL BETS ARE OFF! No one is perfect. We all make mistakes, and if I could take this back I would. Trust me! I can’t, so now I just have to deal. Boy is it going to be expensive! My frustrations with Adrienne since last season’s reunion have been boiling for some time, and I finally reached my breaking point. I understand why Paul was upset with me and he was just defending his wife’s honor. But I don’t think even Paul was aware (at the time) of how underhanded she could be.”
Now you have the FULL story on Brandi’s feud with Adrienne. I have a feeling it’s not over. We will be sure to keep you updated with the latest!
