Brandi Glanville may have recently claimed that she fears her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-star Lisa Vanderpump, but it seems like the expert reality TV pot-stirrer should have known better than to mess with the British businesswoman.
On Monday, Lisa took to her blog to defend herself against Brandi’s accusations that she had intentionally caused drama in the group by befriending Kyle Richards and continuing to employ Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie, who had an affair with Brandi’s ex, Eddie Cibrian.
“Brandi was not friendly with any of the women and desperately wanted to be part of the group. However she knew Scheana was a faithful employee and part of the cast of my new show. She very much understood that. I liked Brandi's spirit and supported that -- so we slowly became friends. She would pop into Villa Blanca and on quite a few occasions, I would change Scheana's section so they would not meet again,” writes Lisa.
While Lisa’s protective nature initially helped foster a relationship between her and Brandi, it soon became clear that her concern and dedication for Brandi was not being repaid by her costar.
“I had been given the message loud and clear that my reprimanding Brandi and looking out for her best interest was redundant … I had defended her when her actions were indefensible … And then she states she is scared of me. But my sin was not calling her for a week. Correct. I was starting to pull away and maybe she felt it.”
While Lisa maintains that she has done nothing wrong, she says she's exhausted by the emotional toll the rumors have taken on her and hopes that that her actions will speak louder than her castmates’ words.
“It has been a difficult week, counteracting the many damaging allegations regarding deportation and bankruptcy, but I have to defend our name and the integrity that we have worked so hard for,” she writes.
Do you think Lisa intentionally stirred up drama with Brandi, or is Brandi overreacting for the sake of the cameras?
