The claws came out during the filming of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion taping last week, when Lisa Vanderpump lashed out at her one-time friend Brandi Glanville, who stunned the 90210 when she claimed that the high-profile restauranteur had secretly been bankrupt!
RadarOnline.com broke the story: The ex-wife of Eddie Cibrian alleged the British beauty wanted to “project this perfect persona like there’s nothing wrong in the world” — when in reality, she had filed for bankruptcy.
“She doesn’t want to talk about that,” Glanville said during her PodcastOne show. “That’s interesting to me.”
Vanderpump, 53, used Friday’s reunion to fire back, insisting: “I’m not broke. How dare you.”
“Lisa was hot under the collar regarding the comments Brandi made about her finances and business empire,” said one production source.
“It’s one thing for Brandi to claim Lisa used her as a puppet to do her dirty work, but entirely another to discuss the British native’s alleged money troubles. First of all, Brandi has no idea what she is talking about — Lisa has never been on the brink of bankruptcy.
“Lisa accused Brandi of having a vendetta against her and being jealous of the life she has.
“Brandi tried to play victim and that Lisa was just bullying her. At one point, Andy Cohen asked Brand and Lisa if they could ever be friends again. Lisa steadfastly responded, no way. This reunion was the most gut wrenching and emotional ever for the Beverly Hills cast.”
The insider said the shoot lasted eight hours and Glanville, 41, stormed off set on at least one occasion.
On the hit Bravo reality show, Vanderpump flaunts her lavish lifestyle, letting the cameras film inside her brand new $10 million, 8000-square-foot Beverly Hills mansion, while Glanville has rented modest homes.
In addition, she and her husband Ken’s two restaurants, SUR and Villa Blanca, are promoted both on both the Real Housewives and Vanderpump Rules.
It just makes “Brandi crazy the Lisa is so popular and is happily married and a successful businesswoman, while she can’t even maintain a healthy relationship with a man,” added the source.
