Big Brother: Celebrity Edition- 5 Fun Facts About Brandi Glanville

Brandi Glanville might be the most well known among the Celebrity Big Brother cast. Anyone who watches reality television has probably seen Brandi once or twice; she’s everywhere. Brandi is most infamously known for her time on The Real Housewives franchise, and the huge cheating scandal involving LeAnn Rimes and Brandi’s ex-husband, Eddie Cibrian. The reality show queen has no-filter: She’s the type of houseguest Big Brother: Celebrity Edition fans love.

Brandi is pretty much an open book, so her fans know almost everything about her. However, for those clueless about Glanville, we made our best attempt to give you five interesting facts about the diva of reality TV.

1. She Bonds Over Scandals

In 2017, Brandi appeared on My Kitchen Rules, the American version of the hugely popular Australian cooking show. The series basically had at least one celebrity partnered with a friend or family member (who could also be a celebrity), and then they competed in a series of cooking challenges. Brandi chose to participate in this show with Dean Sheremet, LeAnn Rimes’ ex-husband.

The two had a playful–semi-flirty–dynamic on the series, and mentioned becoming close friends after the affair.

2. She Has a Hazy Past

In the past, Brandi mentioned that her parents sold weed to make money for the family. She also stole weed from them, and then sold it to her high school classmates. Brandi also blackmailed her dad about it: He gave her money in exchange for her silence.

3. This is Not Her First Big Brother Rodeo

Brandi is the only member of the US Celebrity Big Brother cast to appear on the celebrity version of Big Brother UK. Last summer, Brandi appeared on the international celebrity version, which has a completely different format to our version.

She was the fourth houseguest evicted on that season. Despite Brandi’s normally loud personality, she was more subdued and calm in that house. However, Big Brother UK relies heavily on public votes, so she may have toned down her personality to last longer. We may see a completely different Brandi than the one on he Uk version.

4. They Meet Again

Celebrity Apprentice 2015

In 2015, Brandi appeared on Celebrity Apprentice. She finished in fourth place. This season was also the season Keshia Knight Pulliam appeared; Keshia was eliminated first on this season. Therefore, there may be some familiarity between Brandi and Keshia but we don’t expect them to be best friends, or to even know much about each other.

However, the slight connection could be enough for them to work together in the Big Brother house.

5. She Goes for the Gold

Brandi has been enjoying the cocktails and speaking her mind life for awhile, so many may be shocked to learn that she used to have a non-reality show career. She modeled as a teen and was a gymnast. She spoke on Twitter about doing gymnastics for nine years, and even choreographed her team.

If Brandi reigns in her personality a bit, she might be able to go far in the game. Her gymnastic past might make her more physical and competitive than people expect.
