It's no secret that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Brandi Glanville and Lisa Vanderpump are (sob!) not as close right now as they once were. Now, we're getting more clues about what caused their rift.

Brandi tells NW Magazine in Australia about her side of the situation with Lisa. "You might have heard some stuff about Lisa and I having a bit of a tiff," Brandi writes in a column for the mag.

In explaining where the trouble between them started, Brandi says she feels that Lisa was using her to make Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie famous. As you may recall, Scheana had hooked up with Eddie Cibrian while Brandi was still married to him. "I found out some unsettling things about her using me to get this Scheana girl  the girl Eddie cheated on me with  publicity," Brandi explains. 

"I thought I had done my part by talking to her [Scheana] in the first place,” she continues. "I wanted Lisa to get her show. But then to find out Lisa is like her second mother and there are plans to help her [Scheana] get a spin-off show?"

Brandi says she feels betrayed by Lisa and wants Lisa to own up to it. "I really trusted Lisa,” Brandi says. “I’ll always love her, but I want an apology. I feel like I was becoming her sidekick and I needed to find me again."

Wow! We had heard that the Brandi-Lisa rift had more to do with Lisa confronting Kyle Richards about Mauricio allegedly cheating on her. So it's interesting that Brandi and Lisa's troubles go deeper than that.

And while we can understand why Brandi would be hurt, we're sure that Lisa probably has her own side to this, too. So we're hoping that Brandi and Lisa can patch things up. We just love their friendship too much to see it disappear!
