Brandi Glanville has told producers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that she wouldn’t be upset if her arch enemy, country singer LeAnn Rimes – the woman who broke up her marriage to her then husband, Eddie Cibrian – joined the cast of the popular Bravo reality TV show, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
“Brandi is a very smart cookie and recognizes that if LeAnn were to join the cast, the audience would hate her even more. Brandi loves playing the victim and having LeAnn on the show would allow her to continue in that role as the long-suffering, spurned ex-wife,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“Brandi wants to become Bravo’s next Lisa Vanderpump or Bethenny Frankel and have her own spin-off show; having LeAnn join the cast will almost cement that desire. Viewers love Brandi and her book has seen a very strong debut,” the insider added.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, producers of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills are hotly pursuing Rimes to join the cast to spice things up.
“Executives at Bravo have told LeAnn that appearing on the show would be a great opportunity for her to get her side of the story out and no longer be seen in a negative light. However, she has continued to shut the offers down, claiming she doesn’t want the added drama in her life, that she has a flourishing music career, and that she just doesn’t need to do a reality television show,” a source previously revealed.
A significant number of the existing Beverly Hills cast are facing the ax from the show, as producers put their current hiring and firing plans into action. “The only cast members guaranteed to come back for the fourth season are Brandi and Lisa Vanderpump,” a show insider previously told us.
Meanwhile, “Brandi isn’t surprised that LeAnn has turned down the offer to be on the show, but she feels that the country singer owes it to her to sign on after breaking up her marriage. Brandi has been adamant that her sons with Eddie Cibrian absolutely wouldn’t be a part of any filming with LeAnn. She would shield them from all of the drama, as she has always done,” the source revealed.
