Why Wasn’t Brandi Glanville in Lady Gaga’s Housewives Music Video?
We were certainly excited when we heard the news that the stars of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills would be featured prominently in an upcoming music video for Lady Gaga. But when the final product was actually released over the weekend, all of our expectations were completely blown away!
Gaga’s “G.U.Y.” video features the popstar hanging out with Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster, Carlton Gebbia, and the Richards sisters. Even Bravo’s very own Andy Cohen makes an appearance in the sky! But while we’re loving these awesome (albeit random) cameos, we couldn’t help but notice two very glaring absences.
Despite previous reports that all of the Beverly Hills housewives would play themselves in the video, both Brandi Glanville and Joyce Giraud are nowhere to be seen. Given Brandi’s history of feuding with everyone from her fellow housewives to LeAnn Rimes, fans immediately began to wonder if Brandi had alienated herself from Lady Gaga.
Well, it seems like the story behind her absence is much less intriguing than everyone thought. According to Us Weekly, Brandi had “no drama with the other women or with Gaga.” So, why was she missing? It was nothing more than a simple case of a busy schedule! While her castmates were filming at California’s Hearst Castle, Brandi was promoting her second book, Drinking and Dating, in NYC.
However, Joyce made a deliberate decision not to be a part of the shoot. “She didn’t want to,” a source reveals to Us Weekly. “She was asked, but it was after the reunion and Joyce was over it.”
As much as we would’ve loved to see Joyce participate in the video, we really can’t blame her. If we feel emotionally drained after just watching the reunion, we can’t even imagine what she’s feeling!
What do you think of the G.U.Y. video? Would it have been better if Brandi and Joyce were involved?
