Is the resident pot-stirrer of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills doing it just for the ratings? That’s what one source is now saying about Brandi Glanville, who reportedly causes way more drama than necessary in an effort to boost ratings – and thereby keep her cushy role on the show.
Since she joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills back in season 2, Brandi Glanville has been causing way more than her share of drama, feuding with nearly every one of the other Housewives. And while much of the cat fighting seems to be pretty legit – complete with Twitter insults and more – one RHOBH insider is calling BS on the whole thing, especially where Brandi is concerned.
According to the source, practically all of the run-ins involving Brandi are staged, and the mom of two even purportedly gives her “enemies” a warning before she goes for their jugular! “Brandi would call before filming for the day would begin,” the insider revealed to RadarOnline. “She would say, ‘Ok, I’m going to start a fight with you on camera, and I want you to go along with it, but it’s all for the show. I’m not really mad.”
The source then continued, “It was absolutely stunning that Brandi would be so bold, admitting to creating drama! She did this during her first season on the show, and continues to do so. The cast members wouldn’t agree to it, which only seemed to embolden Brandi. She began to tell the ladies before starting a fight, ‘This is just a warning, I’m going to have a go at you when we are filming.’”’
While some may wonder why Brandi would continue to go to such extremes when her job is already about as secure as a Housewife can have it, the insider said it all boils down to insecurity. “Glanville is extremely insecure and she felt the only way she could stay on the show and become a breakout star, was to be known as the sh*t stirrer. It obviously worked for her because Brandi has two best-selling books.”
Whether the insider is correct in their analysis or not may never be known, but one thing seems pretty certain: as long as Brandi Glanville is a Housewife, sh*t will be stirred, and often.
