Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump are two of the most popular, yet controversial stars on the hit series the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Both woman are extremely talented in their own right, however, they also both have a mean streak — as fans saw on the Season 4 finale! The former BFF’s have somewhat of a toxic relationship, and have just fallen out (again) over Lisa’s decision to hire Brandi’s ex-husband’s former mistress Scheana Marie, to work in her restaurant, Sur. There’s been some nasty remarks flying around and Brandi was quick to tell Lisa, “I’ve been under your spell for two years.” Could this latest feud be the nail in the coffin of their friendship?
Brandi Glanville was born Nov. 16. 1972 in Sacramento, California, and moved to Paris when she was 16 to begin her modeling career with Elite Model Management. In her 17 year modeling career she worked with design couture houses such as Chanel and Gucci, most women’s dream job, right? Glanville went on to marry actor Eddie Cibrian in 2001, known for his work in The Young and The Restless and CSI: Miami. However, their marriage was rocked by Cibrian’s multiple infidelities and officially ended in 2010.
Lisa Vanderpump was born Sept. 15 1960 in London and lived in England for a time before moving to Monaco and eventually California, where she started her acting career at the tender age of nine. In 1973 she made her acting debut in A Touch of Class. She married Ken Todd in 1982 after knowing him for only six weeks: practically love at first sight!
Vanderpump is a woman of many talents: she successfully designed all 26 of the bars and restaurants she and her husband owned in Europe, before moving on to California where they currently own Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills and SUR in West Hollywood and are in the process of opening PUMP, a lounge in West Hollywood. The Vanderpump-Todd combo are a serious power couple! The cunning philanthropist, made her reality TV debut on Vanderpump Rules, a TV series which ran for two seasons and featured her and the staff of SUR, their trials and tribulations and all the drama between them, of which there was plenty.
Apart from Glanville’s modeling success, she is perhaps now better known for her role in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hil, where she has often been referred to as a drama junkie. However, the blond beauty is also a woman of many talents, when she is not slamming LeAnn Rimes or enjoying a good night on the town. Glanville also recently released a book entitled “Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders,” which reached number eight on the New York Times’ bestseller list and number one on its E-list. The book discusses her life to date with brutal, unpolished honesty. Perhaps, Glanville is still a bit of a diamond in the rough, so it’s a good thing she didn’t try to cover up the brutal realities of her life!
Vanderpump and her husband support Keep Memory Alive, a foundation which raises awareness of various mental diseases and supports The Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Cleveland. Not only does she do good work, she and husband Ken Todd have remained totally committed to each other since 1982 (quite an achievement). The couple also share two children and four dogs together.
Unlike her former bestie, Glanville has two sons from her marriage with Eddie Cibrian,Mason,10 and Jake,6, and devotes most of her time to them. The 41-year-old star has unfortunately not had much luck in the love department, but is it really her fault that her ex-husband Cibrian was a cheater?
Glanville and Vanderpump got off to a rocky start when they first met on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in 2011. Brandi was getting over her divorce from Cibrian at the time and Vanderpump didn’t warm to her because of her association with former houseguest Cedric Martinez. The other housewives also mocked poor Glanville for wearing high heels while on crutches at a charity event. The pair frequently throw tantrums with each other on screen, as is the sole purpose of the show, but it’s hard to say what their relationship is like in real-life.
According to Radar Online, Glanville recently revealed that all may not be well with her and the British beauty’s friendship. “I am used to getting my morning phone call from Lisa Vanderpump,” she explained to Kyle Richards. “We discuss everything under the sun and what happened last night and what’s going to happen tomorrow. [But] when things kind of started to go south for me, the calls were trickling off.”
Both ladies are known to love a bit of drama and we have certainly watched tempers flare before on The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Vanderpump has even referred to Glanville as “disgusting” before after her co-star rather tactlessly announced to the world that she was molested as a child. Lisa wasn’t particularly impressed with her co-star’s remarks, saying Brandi was “disgusting” and apologizing because she feels guilty by association. To feel guilty by association may be going a bit far, but it’s nice to know she cares so much about her own image.
Tell us what you think, which Real Housewife is your favorite? Do you love Brandi Glanville and her drama-filled ways, or do you prefer the more sly and smart Lisa Vanderpump?
