‘RHOBH’: Brandi Glanville Is ‘Disappointed’ She Was Not Asked Back for Season 11
Brandi Glanville is best known for holding a diamond on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The reality TV personality was controversial due to her outspokenness and her non-filter. Glanville made for an explosive season 10 of the reality series revealing she had allegedly hooked up with Denise Richards. The latter denied that it ever happened but it did drive a major storyline in the season. That is why Glanville was “disappointed” she wasn’t asked back for season 11 and explains why.
Brandi Glanville not returning to ‘RHOBH’ Season 11
Glanville became an official RHOBH housewife in season 3 and was a full-time star for three seasons. The reality TV personality has made guest appearances since leaving the franchise but her biggest part was in season 10. Glanville dropped in for a scene with Kim Richards when she dropped the bombshell she had hooked up with Denise Richards.
The rumor drove a huge part of the second half of the season. Denise even stopped filming with the rest of the cast because they kept pressing her about the issue she had denied ever happening. Since Glanville was such an integral part of the show she believed producers would surely ask her back the next season. However, Glanville has not heard from them and the season has completed filming.
“I was disappointed, honestly, because I felt like I really gave them their season,” Glanville told ET. “They used the few times that I shot, like in the trailer and every commercial. I didn’t make very much money, I really thought maybe they’re going to ask me to come back, because I did so much for that season, and it’s just been crickets. No one’s reached out to me.”
Brandi Glanville had talked to Andy Cohen about returning
Glanville said she would’ve liked at least a call from producers telling her she was not considered because they had other plans. The Celebrity Big Brother alum said she had talked to Andy Cohen in the past about returning to RHOBH. At the time, Glanville said Cohen suggested they talk after Lisa Vanderpump left as the two were not on good terms.
“And then Lisa left and then really, unfortunately, her mom and brother passed, and they were like, ‘Listen, we don’t want to pour salt in her wounds.’ And I’m like, I don’t either, but I want a job,” Glanville added.
The star said she was done with the Real Housewives but said she would tune in to watch the new season.
“That’s my family,” she said. “Of course, I’m going to watch it. You know? I watch it with a different perspective, and I want to know what’s going on with that. You see all the headlines, but you want to hear it from the horse’s mouth. I have questions, but I think we all have questions, and I want to see how it unfolds.”
The new season of RHOBH will include Kyle Richards, Erika Jayne, Garcelle Beauvais, Lisa Rinna, and Dorit Kemsley. Sutton Stracke, who was a “friend of” in season 10 has been bumped up to a full-time housewife. Also joining the ladies is Crystal Kung Minkoff, the first Asian American housewife on this franchise.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 11 is set to premiere on May 19 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
