When the ladies flew to Hawaii, a nervous Brandi popped some Xanax and sipped some champagne to calm her anxiety. In her altered state, Brandi noted that Kim Richards’s boyfriend looks like a gay bullmastiff and draped her arm around Lisa Vanderpump’s husband. In a recent Bravo blog, Brandi issues a mea culpa and says she doesn’t make a habit of taking medication.
“Let me clarify,” writes Brandi, “I have an extreme fear of flying. I have all my life. In fact, I have a prescription from my doctor for anti-anxiety medication that I use for long flights and smaller airplanes. It is the only occasion that I take them. While I did do a small toast for Mauricio’s birthday when we boarded, I avoid mixing my medication with alcohol, as its [sic] very unsafe.” Brandi added, “I am a mother of two lovely boys and that is my priority. That is why I only take anti-anxiety medication when flying; I hate the feeling that I am not in control of my own mind/body.”
The 39-year-old also defended herself on Twitter, writing, “Drugs no not since I was 23 but thnks. Xob.” Maybe those were the good old days when she could, in her words, “roofie” herself to get through flights?
