Brandi Glanville Talks ‘Famously Single’ Cast Becoming a “Giant Family” — Exclusive
Brandi Glanville has traded in one reality TV family for another — to varying degrees of success.
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star begins her quest for love on Famously Single tonight, June 14, and has had her fair share of ups and downs with her new co-stars.
While the 43-year-old “fell in love” with all the guys in the house — with Calum Best being her closest companion — because they were just being themselves, there was one who didn’t gel quite as much as the others.
As for her surprise connection to the British Celebrity Big Brother star, it was his realness that drew this unlikely duo together.
“We just connected right away on a level that we would have eyeball exchanges that were like seeing through the bulls—t,” she said about the 35-year-old.
When it came to the women, on the other hand, things didn’t go so smoothly — especially with Somaya Reece and an altercation they had early on.
“It was the first day of the shoot and I didn’t actually know who she was,” the mother of two said, detailing an incident that happened because the former Love & Hip Hop star was “very rude” to someone and Brandi’s temper took it to the “next level” when sticking up for the underdog.
“And I’m like I don’t even know who the f—k you guys are,” she continued. “And how are you treating the crew like this? Who the f—k raised you?”
The former model said her female castmates came in with “diva attitudes” except for Jessica White who is “this free spirit and she’s lovely.”
“And then within the house I fell in love with everyone — the girls and the boys,” she added. “It was a giant family. When we left the house I had depression for a couple of weeks. I was like, ‘Where is my family?’”
Famously Single premieres tonight, June 14, at 10 p.m. ET on E! — then tune in every Tuesday night!
