Once upon a time, Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards were big-time enemies. Anyone remember game night at Dana Wilkey's house a couple of seasons back on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Yeah, their relationship started off ugly and just got worse with little incidents like Brandi accusing Kim of doing crystal meth in the bathroom all night and Kim calling Brandi a "slut pig".
It didn't look like they'd ever be able to be in the same room together, much less be friends. So news that they recently went out on a date together is shocking to say the least.
No, they're not dating each other (though wouldn't that be interesting?!), but they did recently go on a double date. According to E! Online, Kim is ready for romance, so when Brandi offered to set her up, she said yes, please. A little scary, considering some of Brandi's choices in men (John Kerwin to name one), but almost anyone has got to be better than creepy Ken Blumenfeld, who Kim previously dated. A source told E!:
She asked Kim if she had her mind on men of any background or color. And Kim said bring it on.
So a few days later, Brandi and Jonathan Ruiz went out on the town with Kim and "a handsome African American man." While they had fun, the source says there was no love connection. Bummer. The good news, however, is that Kim and Brandi were all sorts of chummy.
At the end of the day, there wasn't a romantic connection, but Kim really appreciated Brandi's efforts. She's enjoying their new friendship.
Good for them. They both could use a friend. Though with Kim being highly sensitive and Brandi being highly likely to speak without thinking, I feel like it's a friendship that's building on eggshells at best. Time and a reunion or two will tell how long it lasts.
Do you think Kim and Brandi's friendship will last?
