Hide the wine glasses! After announcing in June she was leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville — who memorably threw a cocktail in costar Eileen Davidson’s face in Season 5 — has taped scenes for the upcoming sixth installment of the Bravo hit, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.
“She’ll pop up here and there,” one insider says of the mom of two, 42, who last season clashed with nearly every single one of her cast members, including Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump, and Davidson. “But by no means will she be on full time.”
Producers have already filled Glanville’s Louboutins. As Us previously reported, Kathryn Edwards, the ex-wife of NFL legend Marcus Allen, and Erika Jayne, a singer from Atlanta, Ga., have joined the cast. (Bravo has yet to announce a premiere date for the new season.)
But even with those additions, Glanville’s spunky energy was missed, says a second source: “Producers brought her back to bring in some drama and liven things up.”
Glanville joined the show in Season 2 and quickly became known for her call-it-like-I-see-it attitude and curse-filled rants, which led to numerous disputes with the other Housewives over the years.
Her return isn’t completely unexpected. When The New York Times best-selling author announced her exit on her podcast, Brandi Glanville: Unfiltered, she hinted at a future appearance.
"After a lot of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided not to return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," the Bravolebrity shared with listeners. "I mean, they've been awesome. And Bravo will always be my family. Like [executive producer] Andy [Cohen] said, 'It's the mafia, you never really get to leave us.’"
A rep for Bravo had no comment.
