“I have my books, I have my wine. I wouldn’t have any of that if it weren’t for ‘Housewives,’ Brandi tole the panel on E! News’ Daily Pop, praising ‘RBOH’ as a “great platform.”
But, she continued, “I think my life right now is in a better place.”
“I have a boyfriend [Donald ‘DJ’ Friese], so it’s different now. I think when you’re single on the show people just come for you ’cause there’s no man there to have your back. … I’ve been yelled at by the men.”
Described by US Weekly as “the center of controversy during her three seasons as a full-time ‘Housewife,'” Brandi also threw some shade at her ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian, and his second wife, LeAnn Rimes, projecting an inevitable split between the two.
Brandi gave the couple — who married in 2011, two years after their affair broke up Eddie and Brandi’s marriage — “three more years.” Alluding to community property laws, she said, “he hits 10 years, half of everything is [Eddie’s] and then he’s gone!”
