Brandi Glanville won't expand role on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'


If you thought you were going to get to see Brandi Glanville do more (and we use that term loosely) on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next season, you can forget it. Her ex-husband Eddie Cibrian and his wife LeAnn Rimes have derailed those plans. Don't you guys think you've done enough to her at this point?

RadarOnline says Glanville was going to be a full-fledged member of the cast, but she was finally forced to tell producers she wouldn't be able to show her kids, Jake and Mason. That was enough of that, Bravo said. "Bravo wanted her to have her kids on the show in order to expand story lines," a source said. "But Leann and Eddie wouldn't allow it. ... Eddie said they did not want the children on camera on a regular basis. So Bravo said that Brandi would have to stay 'friend' and not become an official 'housewife.'"

Truly, it's a dark day for reality TV. Never mind that those two boys have been photographed everywhere for the last couple years. Maybe Brandi and Eddie can go to counseling to sort that all out. Therapy worked so well for them before.
