Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville is best known for her candid and often outrageous remarks. It was her sense of humour and outspoken manner that first drew Brandi and series favourite Lisa Vanderpump together. Last season, many fans were dismayed to see their friendship break down. Brandi took time let me know where their relationship is now as the new season of RHBH has wrapped. She also shared some of her beauty, fashion, and fitness tips. Brandi is a former model and she always looks fabulous on the Housewife show, which is known for style.
In addition to being a “housewife” Brandi is a New York Times bestselling author. Her second book, Drinking and Dating: P.S. Social Media Is Ruining Romance captures her thoughts and adventures as a newly single woman in Beverly Hills.
Here is our interview with Brandi Glanville:
DD: What would it most surprise people to know about you?
BG: I think people are shocked when I tell them I was a gymnast for nine years – up until I was a freshman in high-school – mostly because of how tall I was, 5’10”.
DD: What are your three beauty must-haves and why?
BG: My three beauty must-haves are EMK Placental Serum, Shu Essence Absolu hair and body oil, and my Bella Semplice 24kt gold under-eye patches. They are only $5 and really work.
DD: What are your fashion must-haves for everyday?
BG: My everyday fashion must-haves are white jeans. I’m obsessed. I have about 50 pairs. Simple comfortable sundresses from Veronica M and DVF and, of course, my Haviaina flip flops.
DD: What is the secret of your fitness routine?
BG: My secret to minting my shape is trying to make it three times a week to my Pilates trainer and wearing ankle weights when I can’t make it or am just running casual errands. If you do Pilates, ankle weights can help your lower stomach and help keep your booty lifted and perky.
DD: What is always in your handbag?
BG: Always in my handbag is, most importantly, a dpi-pen for my eldest son who has a condition called angio-adema and can go into shock at any given time for no reason. More frivolously I have cinnamon Orbit gum, and a little makeup case with roll-on perfume, concealer, blush, and lip smackers Chapstick in strawberry banana.
DD: How is your relationship with Lisa Vanderpump these days?
BG: My relationship with LVP is on the mend at this time. I can’t really go into much detail because I don’t want to spoil the show, but no matter what happens between us I will always love and care about her. Friends fight sometimes and it usually comes from a place of hurt feelings which clearly means we care.
