Yolanda Foster is taking to her Bravo Blog to explain why she wanted Brandi to reconnect with her father. Yolanda says she recognizes what Guy Glanville’s issues were with his daughter and that she wanted to soften him up so that Brandi could make peace with her father.
Yolanda writes, “As you can see, Brandi is still in a funk and everything overwhelms her at this point. She asked me to join her for Pride weekend in Sacramento and to meet her family — and to help navigate the situation with her dad.
They got into a big blow out months earlier after Brandi’s book release because she exposed a part of his past that he understandably did not want to share with the public. I enjoyed driving around and hearing the stories of Brandi growing up. Even though we both came from equally humble beginnings, her suburb was very different from the little, sleepy farmers town I grew up in. The Glanvilles are a lovely, hard-working family that have problems just like yours and mine.
My father died when I was seven-years old and I still miss him everyday so it is really sad for me to see a daughter relationship shut down this severely.
Our parents are close in age; I know that generation has an extraordinary sense of pride, loyalty, and privacy so I recognize Guy Glanville’s issues with Brandi and I was hoping to soften him to a point where he could express not only his disappointment but also his love and pride for his daughter because no matter how old we are, the approval of our parents is extremely important. Brandi absolutely loves her family and obviously did not intentionally mean to hurt her dad.
I believe the biggest lesson here for Brandi is to learn to protect the privacy of her family and friends. Just because something is the truth, does not mean you need to share it with the world, especially when it involves others. Thinking before she speaks is going to be mandatory because the choice of her words are starting to have consequences that effect not only her but also her loved ones.”
