It didn’t take long for former Housewife Brandi Glanville to weigh in on Lisa Vanderpump’s behavior this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Hours after an episode aired of the ladies questioning if Lisa V. set up a situation for Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave to find out about the dog drama.
Dorit Kemsley adopted a dog from Vanderpump Dogs and then gave it away to someone else. That someone else ended up dumping the dog at a shelter instead of returning it to the Vanderpump Dogs rescue. Sounds like an innocent situation, but not to these ladies! Thanks to Lisa Rinna, the other cast members all suspect Lisa V. of instructing her employees at Vanderpump Dogs to bring the dog on camera and reveal what happened.
Lisa V., of course, denies this, but Lisa Rinna believes Lisa has a history of manipulating her friends into doing her dirty work and Brandi agrees. Brandi tweeted imploring fans to look back at Seasons 4 and 5 when she accused Lisa V. of doing the same thing, except no one believed Brandi.
What Happened in Seasons 4 and 5?
Lisa V. and Brandi were thick as thieves for the first three seasons of RHOBH. Things started to fall apart in Season 4 when Lisa V. allowed Vanderpump Rules star and SUR employee Scheana Shay to work at parties Brandi was at, despite Brandi telling Lisa V. several times how much it upset her. As fans know, Scheana was one of the many women Brandi’s then-husband, Eddie Cibrian, had an affair with during their nine-year marriage.
At first, Lisa V. claimed she didn’t know that Scheana and Eddie had cheated. She continued to hire Scheana for events even after Brandi Glanville told her. That was the first blow to their friendship.
As for manipulation tactics, Brandi claimed that Lisa V. encouraged her to bring gossip magazines on vacation. The magazines featured stories about the rumors that Kyle’s husband was cheating on her. We never did find out who exactly packed the magazines, but Lisa V. denied doing so or telling Brandi to pack them.
In her tweet about Seasons 4 and 5, Brandi also says that she “tried” but that she didn’t have anyone to back her up. Lisa V. was Brandi’s only friend on the show and none of the other ladies paid much mind to Brandi’s accusation that Lisa was a “puppet master.”
Given that Lisa V. stopped filming with the other ladies during Season 9, it’s safe to say that they believe Brandi now.
Tune in to this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for a special appearance by Brandi Glanville.
