UPDATE: Brandi may have changed her mind, folks. Brandi tells In Touch that she wants former Bond girl (and former Charlie Sheen wife) Denise Richards to play her, saying, "She's hot!" Apparently, acting chops aren't such a priority...
Remember when Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville jested on Twitter about turning her memoir, Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders, into a movie? She may have been serious, as it turns out.
A Radar Online source is affirming the news, saying, "A lot of people thought Brandi was sort of joking in her tweet about the movie, but she wasn't! She's already had several meetings about making her book into a movie."
The insider added, "She's really excited about this. The biggest compliment an author can get is having their book made into a movie."
But finding someone to play the Beverly Hills social butterfly would be a necessity.
"Brandi wouldn't want to actually be in the movie or play herself,” the source continues. “In fact, she already has someone picked out to play her part. She really thinks actress Leslie Bibb would be the perfect fit."
Leslie already has experience dealing with gossipy housewives after playing the lead in ABC’s comedy GCB last year. You may also know the beauty from Popular and Iron Man.
And for the record, we can see a resemblance!
But a source close to Brandi’s once-romantic-rival, LeAnn Rimes, reveals the country singer is not happy about the idea of their feud being adapted for the big screen.
"Turning this book into a movie is enough to send LeAnn over the edge," the insider confessed. "Not only does LeAnn not want the book's details splashed on a movie screen, but Brandi's success is really what's driving her nuts. She's absolutely green with envy."
