Brandi Granville is entering the Big Brother house, with a hope that this might resurrect her failing career. She has done it before though, as she appeared in the UK version of the show. She dropped the c bomb and flashing her bare bottom live on stage at her elimination after four weeks in the Big Brother house. She has agreed to do Big Brother again; perhaps that is why she thinks she may have a chance of getting back to another reality show, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Brandi has made a career out of being drunk, mean and disloyal. When I say career, I am referring to her long list of reality tv shows and her podcast. While being drunk, mean, and disloyal are almost on the applications forms for Big Brother, they certainly do not always fit in with the Housewives universe. Brandi may have expressed a wish to enter the world of Beverly Hills Housewives franchise however, the deafening silence in response to that is surely a sign that she should wish for other things.
There have been some reality stars that have re-entered the Housewives franchise after being away for a bit. Names like Bethenny Frankel and NeNe Leakes to name but a few. However these ladies are bona fide real stars, commanding their re-emergence mainly due to fan favoritism and the fact they are genuinely funny. Brandi doesn’t quite fit into that category. Drunk and disorderly isn’t funny.
The other aspect Brandi might find difficult is that to be part of the franchise, you do need to find people who talk to you. Claiming you will “wreck havoc on a few people” is hardly going to win you friends. If you look at the current cast of Beverly Hills Housewives, she will struggle to make any friends. Lisa Vanderpump is well and truly over her. Asked why she would not reconcile with Brandi, Lisa said “she takes it to a whole other level”. Brandi called her a “coward” and she would only be friends with Lisa Vanderpump if she cuts her a cheque for half a million. I don’t see Lisa even giving half a dime.
Kyle would also be reluctant to be friends with a person who drove a wedge between herself and her sister Kim, one that still seems to exist today. Lisa Rinna had no words to give Brandi Granville, just a middle finger, after their long-standing feud on the show.
So who does that leave? Camille Grammar. Well given the way she reacted to the “see you next Tuesday” comment from Dorit, she is unlikely to accept it being used every third word by Brandi, a woman known for her potty mouth. Dorit is loyal to Lisa Vanderpump and has been shown to take on those who take on the Queen of diamonds. She may get along with Erika Girardi, although Erika is more into “patting the puss” than dealing with a sour puss. It only leaves Teddi, the accountability coach. Brandi doesn’t like taking accountability with anything, everything that ever happened to her being someone else’s fault, so no potential friendship there and Brandi does look like someone who is late a lot.
It leaves no one to betray, no one to catch her as she teeters on her high heels after her seventh drink in a row, no one to swear at and no one whose life she can attempt to destroy. So, despite Big Brother opening its arms once more, the gates to Beverly Hills appear to be well and truly shut.
