LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – A Brandi Glanville petition to remove the star from RHOBH dominated news in 2014. But that same petition is exponentially growing overnight, nearly a year after it was created, LALATE can report. Petition creator Lori Chase garnered more than roughly 4,500 signatures as of March 2014. But now LALATE can report, that following new conduct by Glanville on and off the NBC Universal show “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, Glanville is the subject once again of a movement to oust her from the franchise.
In 2014, Lori Chase launched her Brandi Glanville petition drive for NBC Universal. Chase told news that Glanville should have no part of the NBC Universal family after comments Glanville made about then co-star Joyce Giraud and swimming. The petition ran up to roughly 4500 signatures in 2014, and prompted Glanville to respond “Dear random people or person who has time 2 make up a petition about me a-thanks for keeping me in the news B-don’t we have whales to save?”.
Giraud left the show, and Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson joined. This season, Lisa has called Brandi “Cuckoo “, and Eilenn says that Brandi needs a thesaurus. Meantime, Kyle Richards has told news that Brandi turns on everyone on RHOBH, and Lisa Vanderpump has agreed.
Glanville, however, this season has thrown wine on Eileen Davidson, tore a branch from Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant tree, and got in a scuffle with Kyle Richards. While such conduct is not atypical for a Housewife show, the conduct outside the program has magnified the situation. Recently Glanville made repeated false comments Joanna Krupa and Kenya Moore’s bodies. Glanville threw wine on Jeff Lewis during an appearance on WWHL. The encounter was dubbed “most awkward WWHL ever” by the network. It left host Andy Cohen sleepless, by his admission, overnight. Glanville later told news that it was a prank she staged for humor.
And yet, some of Glanville’s word choices this season have left many network stars shocked. Glanville has offered to pleasure Lisa Vanderpump, prompting Kenya Moore to tweet that she was unaware that NBC/Bravo allowed you to use the “p” word during a housewife cable telecast. Critics claim Glanville, who is neither married nor lives in Beverly Hills, has been dirtying the network’s image by going from “against the grain” to what Rinna calls the land of “Cuckoo LaRue”. Glanville herself last episode said that, if she did not act this way, there would be nothing in the show to talk about.
Now Chase’s petition, however, is resonating to critics. The petition has grown quickly in recent days to now reach 8226 supporting Chase’s request. Chase writes “Please remove Brandi Glanville from ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ immediately.”
LALATE can, however, report that the biggest gauge of viewer reactions was scratched by BravoTV in 2014: the commenting system on BravoTV.com. For years, not a single HW reunion passed without Andy Cohen stating “we got a lot of comments on BravoTV.com about this”. But in Spring 2014, BravoTV removed all commenting from cast members’ articles. If Bravo had kept those comments, one would be able to better gauge viewer sentiments pro or con to Glanville in the wake of her recent antics.
