Just the other day we were all chatting in comments that we wanted more racial diversity in the RHOA cast, and also in the RHOBH cast. It seems while we were talking about it, the franchise’s first Asian cast member had begun filming with Brandi Glanville on the mean streets of Beverly Hills.
Daily Mail was able to catch some great, exclusive photos of Brandi filming with Christine Chiu. Christine Chiu is married to “plastic surgeon to the stars ” Dr. Gabriel Chiu. While there are dozens of Christine Chius on Twitter, I was easily able to find the twitter of Dr. Chiu. Dr. Chiu follows every chi chi Beverly Hills person and business you could imagine. He also follows all the tabloids and a few familiar names like Kyle Richards, Taylor Armstrong, Kim Kardashian, Adrienne Maloof, Giuliana Rancic and Paul Nassif, just to name a few. The few articles I’ve read about him lead me to believe is egotistical and very into appearances. Christine is stunning and a huge fashionista. She goes to Paris Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, Emmy and Oscars parties, and every charity gala on the planet.
The scenes shot with Brandi and Christine were at Vampire Lounge & Tasting Room in West Hollywood, where they grabbed some lunch after a tiring shopping trip to Saks where apparently they got a makeover as some cosmetics counter because they were both heavily made up and Christine seemed to be carrying a makeup back in case they needed and emergency touch-up between shootings.
After the shoot, Christine jumped in her husband’s black Ferrari (or possibly hers if they have matching pairs, he zips around town in a black Ferrari according to other articles.
I think I hate these people. Yes, yes, I am being judgey. They may both be lovely people who are very down to earth and easy to talk to. But, I am getting a “stick up the ass” vibe from both of them. I’m thinking Heather and Terry times a million. I can’t see the husband hanging out with Ken and Mauricio. That said, he is twitter friends with Paul, so maybe there is hope there.
I’m not sure whether Christine will be a full housewife or a friend of, but I am sort of hoping for the latter for now. If you recall in the Reality Catch Up post, I suggested that Camille was filming with Kyle and Brandi the other day. It would not surprise me if she was back on the show in some capacity next season. I could see Camille and Christine being friends, but I am not so sure the relationship between Christine and Brandi will be genuine. I do expect Brandi to drop Yolanda like a hot potato as someone even richer comes along… So it seems Brandi will be back. Fun Fact: Daily Mail made fun of her greasy hair in their story.
