"Lisa Vanderpump is a manipulative person," Brandi Glanville said on her podcast

March 11, 2019 03:49 PM

Brandi Glanville has some thoughts about ex-friend Lisa Vanderpump‘s dynamic with the cast of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The reality star addressed the drama currently unfolding on the Bravo series on her Unfiltered podcast Friday, calling it “just so refreshing” that Vanderpump’s castmates are against her in the so-called “PuppyGate.”

“It’s so crazy and I’m so happy that this is finally happening. You know what, Lisa Vanderpump is a manipulative person, and when I was on the show, I did a lot of her dirty work for her,” said Glanville, 46. “And I finally realized it, and I started calling her on her s—, and I had no backup. Zero. And that got me no job.”

Glanville, who left the show in 2015, said on the podcast that she was “let go” by the network.

Reps for Vanderpump and Bravo are not commenting on her claims.

“It’s just so refreshing to see all of these girls finally figuring it out,” Glanville said. “Listen, in the court of public opinion, you will not win against Vanderpump on social media. Her people will let her barbecue a baby — I’ve said this a million times — and think it’s really cute… So I just want these women to stay strong. Because they’re going to get a ton of backlash.”

During Glanville’s turbulent time on the Bravo reality series, audiences witnessed the highs and lows of her relationship with Vanderpump, whom she famously slapped during an episode of RHOBH.

“I don’t have any understanding of her motives in any situation ever. I thought the only way for me to really sustain any kind of relationship was to give her the kind of credibility she deserves, which is little to nothing,” Vanderpump told PEOPLE in 2015.

The SUR restaurateur, 58, is currently embroiled in a feud with her fellow Housewives that apparently began when Dorit Kemsley adopted a dog named Lucy from Vanderpump’s rescue center, then gave it away to another family after it bit her daughter.

Unbeknownst to Kemsley, the dog ended up back at a shelter, where rescuers used a microchip to trace it to Vanderpump Pets — putting Kemsley in violation of her pet adoption contract and making the Vanderpump Dog Foundation look irresponsible.

Lisa Rinna accused Vanderpump of orchestrating #PuppyGate, and threatened legal action this week after reports surfaced that Vanderpump was possibly shopping a new spinoff based on the foundation.

“If this indeed becomes another show, my lawyer will be calling,” Rinna, 55, wrote on her Instagram Story Thursday.

“Her game that’s always worked is not working anymore. But the fans will always love her and that’s it,” Glanville said on her podcast. “They all feel the same way finally. It just makes me feel like, thank God, it’s time. It’s about f—ing time.”

A network source told PEOPLE that Bravo has not ordered a show, and a source close to the show said Vanderpump was only floating rumors about the potential of a spinoff to drum up support.

Vanderpump defended herself in her latest BravoTV.com blog.

“Lucy was not a traumatized rescue dog who had a history of biting and was unsuitable for children as often stated. She started her life in a loving environment provided by our foundation,” she wrote. “We are cognizant of the situation that a dog would be placed in. Young children can terrorize a dog; they have to be taught to be tactile, gentle and patient as the puppy becomes more secure in its new surroundings.

She added: “Frankly, the synopsis is that I have always endeavored to protect Dorit and I was accused of it once more. But, I don’t give a damn at this point. As all of the women focus on who is to blame for exposing Puppy Gate, I choose to focus on the excellent work my foundation does on a daily basis,” she wrote.”

“I haven’t seen any of the episodes as I have decided not to revisit a painful time in my life,” she continued. “The trip that was supposed to be a brief respite, was instead an emotional nightmare that pulled me even deeper.”

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
