As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Brandi was to graduate from ‘friend’ to a full-fledged ‘Housewife on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned Bravo yanked the offer after Brandi was forced to tell the network that her kids couldn't appear on camera.
“Bravo wanted her to have her kids on the show in order to expand story lines,” a source tells Radar. “But Leann and Eddie wouldn't allow it.”
Eddie and LeAnn started an affair while married to their respective spouses, filed for divorce and married each other shortly after and LeAnn has often spoken about her love for Brandi’s two sons, Jake and Mason. However, despite the multiple photo-ops where the exes are seen smiling at the children’s events together, everything isn’t so rosy beneath the surface.
“Brandi didn’t expect that LeAnn and Eddie would have objections since the kids have been on the show before, but they did,” the source says. “Eddie said they did not want the children on camera on a regular basis. So Bravo said that Brandi would have to stay ‘friend' and not become an official ‘housewife.’"
Brandi will be on season three of the hit reality show along with Taylor Armstrong, Lisa Vanderpump, Adrienne Maloof, Kim and Kyle Richards and the newest ‘Housewife’ Yolanda Hadid, music mogul David Foster’s ultra-rich wife.
