Brandi Glanville’s blog is four pages long this week. You know how I sometimes take two hours to write a RHOA blog because there is a lot of funny dialogue I need to recap? I don’t usually edit my recaps because I learned long ago you guys want them fast more than you want the grammatically correct with perfect spelling and no typos. But on those long complicated ones, if you pay close attention, you will notice that the sentence structure and clarity sometimes gets worse toward the end. That a sure sign that I am sipping some vino throughout the process. I think this might explain Brandi’s blog this week.
She starts off being oddly complimentary for Brandi. She talks about how pretty Lisa Rinna is and how she loves that Lisa likes porn. She compliments Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster for their grace in dealing with major illnesses in their families. She throws a little shade Kyle’s direction by saying she will not say anything about how others choose to raise their children. She throws some strange shade at Eileen when she wonders why she would be on a reality show if she didn’t love the attention.
The wheels really start to come off at the end when she talks about Lisa. It’s clear she is infuriated with Lisa over her relationship with Scheana. Especially Lisa’s involvement with Scheana’s engagement and wedding. And then the wheels break all the way off the wagon with her last sentence:
So, here’s my take or example or whatever: Do you think any of Princess Diana’s really “good” friends ever threw catered engagement parties at their big houses for Camilla Parker-Bowles?
This doesn’t even begin to make sense. In her scenario, LeeAnn Rimes would be in the Camilla Parker-Bowles spot, and Brandi would be dead.
But the most perplexing part of the blog was her rant against Eddie. I may have to take this line by line.
I am really trying to find peace and happiness in my life, even when it comes to my ex husband. It’s been five long years since we split, and I would really like the fighting to just stop.
Eddie decided after my second best-selling book Drinking and Dating was released, that he had overpaid me in child support and alimony over the past five years and would like to be reimbursed for the back payments–already spent on rent, food, and clothing to raise our children.
He can’t do that. If he thinks there has been a significant increase in your income, he can file for a modification. The date that the payment amount would change would be from the date of his filing not the date of the change in income. If any retroactive refunds of overpayment are allowed, they would be repaid by future decreases in the percentage of payment until the overpayment was repaid in full.
Since I didn’t have the cash lying around, he was happy to take it from my tiny retirement fund, a small $114k. I had no choice but to hire a lawyer to fight for my retirement. Although I’m not going to just roll over and let him take my retirement account, I’m also bummed that this fighting continues.
I don’t recall anything in any of your books about you having a job during your marriage. Models and department store clerks don’t usually set up a retirement plan. So I’m going to assume this is your portion of Eddie’s retirement plan. But it makes no difference because that is not the way it works. You’re either lying or you and or your lawyer is stupid.
One thousand a month in L.A. is kinda sad for a guy who can earn $300k a year only working part time. So, now you know.
As much as you want to make it sound like Eddie only pays $1000 a month for two boys in Beverly Hills no one believes you. What I believe is happening is he wants to reduce his future payments by $1000 a month to recover an overpayment. Only the courts can decide if that is justifiable. In the meantime, it is ridiculous that someone making at least $200K working part-time would make that kind of comment about Eddie. Is an income reduction of $12K a year really worth all the drama and fighting and lawyer fees?
You’re being ridiculous, Princess.
