'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Recap: Brandi Glanville Gives Scheana Marie Exactly What She Deserves

by Julie Ryan Evans on January 7, 2013 at 11:12 PM

Brandi GlanvilleFirst of all, let's give Bravo props for using The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for a dramatic and seamless introduction for its new series Vanderpump Rules tonight. Just when we were reeling from the whole Brandi Glanville confrontation with Eddie Cibrian's mistress Scheana Marie, all of a sudden we were watching the new show. Nicely done.

The person who really deserves props here though is Brandi. If I wasn't totally Team Brandi before, tonight sealed the deal. She handled Scheana with complete class and composure while still letting her know who was boss. The best line was when she said, "Look at where you are in your life and I’m in such a better place. I win. You know what I mean." Bam. That's exactly what you want someone who f*cked your husband to know.

Brandi had little sympathy for the obviously fame-hungry girl, and wasn't about to let her play the victim. She told her, "If anyone is going to cry here, it's going to be me." But she was also smart and fair enough to acknowledge that the real person at fault here was Eddie. "You can't steal a man; they have to be ready to go," she said.

She did show her vulnerable side and let Scheana see how truly devastated she was by the whole thing, which she needed to see. Brandi was also clearly hurt and surprised when she found out that one of their friends who had said he didn't know about Eddie and Scheana did know all along.

She ended things by accepting Scheana's apology, even giving her a little pat on the shoulder, which was more than she deserved. She told her she'd say hello when she saw her, good luck, and she left. It was perfect. As for Scheana, she came off like a fame-hungry opportunist who was trying to muster up some tears and look sorry without messing up her caked-on makeup. Whatever. I wish she hadn't gotten the airtime, but I was glad to see Brandi get some kind of closure.

In other news, did Adrienne Maloof really blame her marital problems on Brandi? She sure seemed to when she said that whatever it is Brandi said about Adrienne has "caused more issues than she knows", and that it has put a strain on their relationship. Please. If it's the whole surrogate thing we all assume it is, then I don't see how that would affect their marriage. It sounds like she's just looking for someone to blame. I'm guessing that's the foreshadowing to when we finally start to see their relationship, which we know is doomed, start to falter. 

As for Yolanda Foster, I guess she is still on the show. But why?

What did you think of the way Brandi Glanville handled the confrontation with Scheana Marie?

    Nice that Yolanda thought her daughter was a lesbian because she played volleyball. What a jerk she is.

    Brandi handled her sit down with Sheana with class. She certainly is not the beast that mean girls Faye, Kyle, Kim, Adrienne et al portray her to be. Such as shame that only Lisa and Marisa spoke up for Brandi at Kyle's so called dinner party. Camille should have been the 1st person to put Faye in her place. Adrienne blaming Brandi for marital tension is a joke. She and Paul have been separated for ages. Just waiting for Yolanda, Adrienne and Kim to leave the show.

    Cye, Yolanda didn't think her daughter was a lesbian because she played volleyball. She thought her daughter was a lesbian because she was wearing sports wear on a daily basis when she was younger. 

    I wonder if Paul & Adrienne's skin care line will move forward despite the divorce. She also said that Brandi spilling that secret has caused their marriage to hurt even more. (Maybe the real secret is that he hits her)

    I'm happy that Taylor was able to settle the lawsuit. Maybe giving up the ring will help her move on and heal from Russell. 

    Brandi is a bitch. 

    Haha! I love Yolanda's family atmosphere. That spaghetti looked REALLY tasty!

    I thought it was weird that she said "look at you and look at me, I am in a good place".  SHe is not in a good place.  She is mean and vindictive, and she does talk bad about her ex.  She might not do it with the kids, but she does it on Twitter and so forth.  ANd they will be able to see them soon.

    I think she was shocked in what she learned.  Because throughout the show, she mostly blammed the mistress, and then when she told her what really happened, she was shocked

    Brandi handled that situation with class. It's nothing like knowing the truth instead of the lies and BS she was fed now she has closure with that scumbag knowing he is the one with the problems always needing self gratification and it was not all her fault. Men like Eddie never change he only sees women as conquest.

    This waitress creature is now trying to build a tv career, fame, on the fact that she CHOOSE to be the secret mistress of another woman's husband AND returned to continue to be his mistress after she KNEW he as married. Glanville was pregnant and thought she was happily married. Vile.
