The Brandi Glanville – Denise Richards lesbian hookup situation
Brandi Glanville is one of my favorite situations to emerge from the Real Housewives franchise. The 47-year-old situation-starter has returned to season 10 of the show to tell on a certain cast member that ghosted her after a hot lesbian encounter.
Brandi has worked very hard for her spot on the show. Some may even say a bit too hard.
I think Brandi is struggling with some anxiety and struggling to feel worthy to star on such a popular show. Thus, she has to continuously remind us about why she is interesting.
First, it was about her connection to former A-Lister Eddie Cibrian and that fact that he cheated on her with A-List star LeeAnne Rimes. In fact, whenever she is feeling a little irrelevant, she is quick to remind us of her credentials.
Then she came out about her bisexuality and hinted that she has had some wild encounters with some beautiful women.
But even with that, Brandi had a difficult time keeping her lucrative job on the hit Bravo show. She has been on and off–occasionally coming back for a party here and there.
So just when you think Brandi has run out of shticks to keep her interesting, she and Kim Richards (another cast-off) call a conference with the other women because they have some good drama that unfortunately occurred off-camera.
On the July 22nd episode, the ex-Housewife tells Kyle Richards, 51 and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave, 39 that she hooked up with Denise, and by “hook-up” she means HOOK …. UP.. the full menu.
But the pow wow starts with Kyle telling Brandi that Denise is on the outs with the women after they brought up threesomes in front of Denise’s children.
Then Kim very dramatically proclaims that Denise “did something” to Brandi.
This is where Brandi loses credibility, in my opinion. She is acting like she was raped by Denise….or at leased coerced against her free will.
“I don’t want to go into it. I just think you guys need to be careful with her, because she’s not who she pretends to be,” Brandi teases.
And just to add to the suspension At that point, Brandi nervously requests water and wine. “I have never seen Brandi so nervous,” Kyle says in her ITM confessional.
“Normally, when she’s upset, it comes spilling out of her mouth.”
Let’s be honest, Brandi knows she has a good scoop and is milking the attention.
First she offers a nugget that she knows will get their attention and lubricate the ladies for the big bombshell she’s about to drop telling them that Denise said “mean” things about all of the women.
“She feels she can tell me things because she has something on me,” Brandi says of Denise.
“When we met. We just hit it off. I thought she was the coolest chick. I saw her in April and I didn’t see her again until your party,”
“Some s— went down over those nine months that was really f—– up. It’s bad,” Brandi confesses to Kyle and Teddi before breaking down in tears.
“I was so broken for so long. When I was married and I was cheated on, it destroyed me,” .
Again, here is where Brandi loses me. If Brandi was told Denise and Aaron had an open relationship, then she knows she did nothing wrong.
So what’s the real situation?:
In my opinion, Brandi was ghosted by this A-List actress that she had real feelings for and her feelings are hurt and now she wants revenge.
And she knows she looks like a a$#hole by telling on Denise, thus Brandi makes it about “cheating” and not getting her feelings hurt.
Brandi goes on to say: “I had been out with her and Aaron and I knew they had an understanding that she could be with girls if she wanted to as long as it wasn’t with a guy. The first night we met, something happened.”
Brandi explains to cameras that once, she went to dinner with Denise, and the two got “wasted” and in the restroom “all of sudden we’re making out.”
And later on an episode of Watch What Happens Live Andy Cohen she delivered more details on the bathroom sitch:
“The first night I met Denise, we made out in the bathroom.”
“She asked to see my t*ts because she needed to get her boobs redone. We went to the bathroom, she threw me against the wall and we were making out. But we were wasted and it was fun and I’m down for fun.”
She also told Andy that the affair continued years later, when Denise “invited me to go to her set in Northern California to do my podcast.”
Back to what happened on the RHOBH episode:
“She really wanted to hang out a lot,” Brandi claimed.
“I went and I wanted to get my own room, but Denise was like ‘No, just stay here. It’s fine. I’ll get you a rollaway bed,'”
“That first night the girls were sleeping in a room downstairs and Denise had a room upstairs, and there was no rollaway bed, conveniently. So, I just slept in bed with Denise,” Brandi tells the camera.
“The first night I was there we just had a good night and then the next night we got really drunk and we kind of hooked up, we hooked up,”
Brandi said, prompting Kyle to ask, “Who is we?”
“Denise and I,” Brandi said.
I do believe Brandi…that the affair happened. That’s not the issue. I just don’t believe that Brandi wasn’t a 100% willing participant. And that she didn’t enjoy Denise taking a romantic and sexual interest in her.
I think Brandi wanted more and had Denise not ghosted her, we would have never heard a peep about this salacious situation.
One lingering question….when confronted Denise fired back that Brandi tld her she had slept with everyone on the cast of the show. So what other housewives did she mean?
