Brandi Glanville tells fans she is much happier since leaving the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Previously, Brandi was let go from the show. Bravo decided not to renew her contract. Sources claim it was because Brandi was aggressive and unpredictable around the other women. Brandi maintains that she created drama to make good television.
In a new interview, Brandi insists she only caused drama for ratings. And she claims the decision to leave was “mutual” after admitting she got fired.
Brandi told Wonderwall (via Reality Tea), “I’m cutting back on my anti-depressants. I wake up with a smile.”
What was it like filming RHOBH? “There’s a stress that goes with it. I don’t have that anymore. My days are happy and carefree. I talk to Yolanda [Foster] and she’s like, ‘Oh, it’s so stressful,’ and I’m like, ‘I know.'”
She explains she was negative because it made good TV. “I was doing everything for the sake of making good TV whether I would go be loved or hated.”
Why act bad for the cameras? She needed the money! “Because I, unlike the other women, needed the J-O-B. They’re rich anyway. If something needed to happen, I was like, ‘OK, we don’t have a show, what can I do?’”
Brandi claims Bravo would welcome her back. “Yes, they’ve asked me to leave the door open. Bravo was my home and they saved my life. I would never say, ‘No, I’m not coming back 100%.’”
She changed her tune, again, on whether she quit or was fired: “It was a mutual decision. It wasn’t like, ‘OK, Bye!’ I didn’t want to do it but at the same time with Kim [Richards] not doing it and Yolanda being ill and not doing it as much… I really don’t like the other women.”
How did it feel to leave? “I feel like I’m going through a breakup almost, but I feel clean, fresh and clean.”
What are her plans? “I cannot say exactly what I’m doing, but I’m not leaving. I’ll be here. There’s two different things I’m doing for TV that’s all I can say.”
And clues on her TV projects? “It’s reality based. But, you know, I won’t have to be around people I wouldn’t normally hang out with and have to throw wine.”
