When Brandi Glanville first showed up on RHOBH I loved her. She was a breath of fresh air in a group that was getting tiresome. She shook things up. She was a nutbar. It was great. Until it wasn’t. At some point she crossed the line into a Porsha Williams level of ratchetness. She slapped people. She said inappropriate things for shock value. She got too full of herself. I could not stand her. She wrote two books that her avid fans insisted on sending me. I was unmoved. I was over her.
Since being shown the door on RHOBH, she’s started a podcast, she’s working on a third book, she got a wine deal, She’s been on several other reality shows on multiple networks, she working on a lifestyle blog. She is hustling. She is succeeding.
About six months ago she met a guy. Not a random hookup with the Uber driver. Not an inappropriate fucktoy who helped her move. She met an age appropriate guy. And he’s rich. And he is VERY into to her.
What a difference good sex makes. I can’t remember the last time she was drunk on social media lamenting some fucked up relationship. In fact, she has said very little about her new man on social media. Her new man, Donald (DJ) Friese has not stopped talking about her. He adores her. He seems perfect. He’s super rich and has a gorgeous house with tons of property. On that property he has a tortoise and turtle rescue. Say it with me, “Awwwwww.” I’m happy for Brandi for getting herself together.
Something interesting is happening on her social media. She’s tweeting about Bravo shows in a positive way. She recently wished the RHOBH well on their upcoming (at the time) reunion. She’s looking like she belongs in Beverly Hills. She’s not the poor girl living in the valley with a drinking problem. She is the belle of DJ’s ball.
They are currently in Mexico, on a birthday trip for DJ and a dozen or so of his closest friends. She’s dressed to the nines in every photo. Never the same swimsuit, sunglasses, dress twice. She looks fantastic. She even seems to have stopped fucking with her face.
Andy Cohen has always liked Brandi. Well, except for that time she was on WWHL with Jeff Lewis. But that was two years ago. That was the old Brandi. It seems clear to me that she should be back on the show. It seems even clearer that is her goal. A victorious return to RHOBH where she is on equal footing. Perhaps a wedding far beyond the Bravo budget.
I see this in her future. Do you? Do you want to see Brandi back on RHOBH?
