Brandi Glanville revealed the real reason(s) she left her podcast, "Brandi Glanville Unfiltered" -- and she left out no culprits.
The "Marriage Boot Camp" star returned from her PodCastOne hiatus on Friday and jumped right into the story. Last month, "Vanderpump Rules" star Scheana Shay -- Glanville's ex-husband's former mistress (it's complicated) -- received the green light for her own podcast, the second trigger for Glanville. (The first was when she found out Shay was sleeping with Eddie Cibrian while Glanville was pregnant.) It got messier from there.
"You guys had hired Scheana Shay to do a podcast, which would be like interviewing reality people and I was like 'Oh, huh. That sounds kind of like mine,'" Glanville told William Sterling, her producer and occasional co-host. "And then you told me that you had to produce it, and I thought 'Oh, my god. I'm being cheated on again with Scheana.'"
That wasn't the only surprise. Glanville, being civil, told PodcastOne's talent booker, Kirsten Woodward, about her plans to bring Shay on her show to "hash things out" despite being "totally friends."
"When I said that, Kirsten said, 'Well, she can't do the show unless she gets permission from Lisa [Vanderpump],'" Glanville said. "And that's when I saw red and I was like, 'F-ck everyone.' And I left and I was just kind of like, 'Are you kidding? This bitch is still ruining my life. I've been here almost five years. This is the one thing that I have that she can't touch, and now she's telling me whether I can interview Scheana or not?"
But the bad news parade marched on. Glanville visited New York afterward, still fuming. Tuning into Shay's episode of "Watch What Happens Live" didn't help.
"Andy [Cohen] talks about [Shay's] podcast, and she goes, 'Yeah I'm having James Maslow on it.' And I was like, 'F-ck everyone' because Kirsten had asked me if I would have James on my show," Glanville said. "And then I wrote an email -- a mass email -- that was like, 'Loyalty is nothing to anyone.' And you know, I kind of regretted it. But I was like, you know what, it's just too incestuous, too close to comfort."
Glanville shared she later ran into Shay during "Night of 31 Doorbells" on "Watch What Happens Live" and told the "Vanderpump Rules" star that she was the reason Glanville left her podcast. Shay then revealed to Glanville the real reason she couldn't participate in her show.
"It wasn't that she had to get permission from Lisa; she wanted to wait to get her pick up for 'Vanderpump Rules,'" Glanville said of the new information. "Because Lisa does -- she's very controlling. And even posting pictures, she was scared. And I mean, that's very sad. I'm not afraid of Lisa, obviously, but she did try to ruin my life for the past four years. And then having her just in this world, I was like 'Hell no.'"
