Who Is Celebrity Big Brother 2017's Brandi Glanville? Everything You Need To Know!
The model turned ex-housewife is set to bring the drama.
The blessing formally known as Celebrity Big Brother has re-entered our lives once more and so we figured it would be only be polite to prove a basic factfile for each of the housemates set to light up our screens for the Summer.
Enter Brandi Glanville, the model turned socialite turned reality star who isn't exactly known for holding her tongue when she feels like she's been scorned. And judging by her history of clashes, the producers over at CBB might be in for more than they bargained for.
Who is she?
Brandi first made a name for herself as a model at the biggest fashion houses in Paris. She moved there as a sixteen-year-old where she worked for the likes of Armani, Chanel and Gucci. But Brandi is most commonly known for being a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, and for the drama surrounding her split with now ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian.
What does she do now?
Brandi joined Real Housewives as a permanent castmember back in 2011 but - after leaving in series five - now only returns to the show on occasion. She's not sitting around twiddling her thumbs, though. Brandi has appeared on Celebrity Apprentice and Dancing With The Stars, and has a podcast of her own called Brandi Glanville Unfiltered.
Not to mention the fact she's penned a couple of fantastically-titled books: Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders, and Drinking and Dating: P.S. Social Media Is Ruining Romance.
Any feuds we should know about?
Well. The mum of two didn't exactly take the end of her nine-year marriage to CSI: Miami actor Eddie Cibrian well. His remarriage to LeAnn Rimes was a sore subject for a long time, with Brandi accusing the country singer of "copying" her life by using the exact same “dentist, dermatologist, plastic surgeon and trainer."
She also famously claimed she was married to the "number one douchebag of all time," and has - of course - been involved in feuds with co-stars Lisa Rinna, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump. So, not quite the definition of a wallflower who shies away from confrontation.
What can we expect from her in the house?
Judging by everything we know so far, D-R-A-M-A. While Brandi is currently in a relationship with the heir of a billionaire, the reality star recently opened up to Huffington Post about her approach to sexuality. "I don’t swing both ways, I’ve been with women and usually there’s a man involved.
"I have a couple times been with women where it was just us…I love beautiful people and if you’re a man you’re a man, if you’re a woman you’re a woman. I’m not a lesbian and I’m not straight."
Celebrity Big Brother continues at 9pm on Channel 5
