Brandi Glanville has clearly turned her attention away from her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian’s new wife, LeAnn Rimes, and set her sights on her new enemy, Adrienne Maloof, who she says is a “liar about everything!”
Glanville -- appearing on Wednesday’s edition of the local Fox morning show Good Day New York to promote her bombshell new memior -- explained the root of her venom towards Maloof, her co-star on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“I took that very personally, and we started a little war. She put negative stories about me as a mother in the press, and she said negative things about my children and how I mother them, and so I took that very personally,” she added.
Glanville explained that because Real Housewives is a reality show -- meaning the cast doesn’t ever refer to it as being an actual TV program -- she couldn’t say Adrienne tried to get her fired from it.
She said her anger towards Adrienne was why she, now famously, spilled a very personal family secret about Adrienne to her fellow cast mates, when Adrienne and her then husband, Dr. Paul Nassif, were not present.
When the anchors asked Glanville to repeat what she said, Glanville replied, “I can’t say. I wish I could, but the lawyers got involved, and I’m not allowed to say what I said.”
When the anchors said the secret involved something about Adrienne’s children, Glanville again declined to elaborate, simply saying, “I don’t know,” but she did explain why she said what she said.
“I just wanted to show she (Adrienne) was a liar about everything. I wanted to discredit her and without saying she tried to get me fired from the show and that I was a bad mother.”
Glanville said she and Adrienne have no relationship and that “it’s not comfortable.”
However, she did say if LeAnn checks into rehab as she did for “stress and anxiety,” as a mother, she needs answers since her two children are often with the country singer.
