Glanville mends fences with her father, Guy, while the wives get in the ring to learn self-defense
Let’s get ready to rumble!
“I love that man like crazy,” Glanville, 40, said of her father, whom she had upset by wearing a very revealing Oscar dress and also referencing his days as a hippie in her memoir Drinking and Tweeting. “I said he was a drug dealer. He was a marijuana grower.”
Continued Glanville: “I haven’t talked to him in months. He won’t even answer my texts.”
But she got the chance when her father and family attended a book signing at a gay pride event in her hometown of Sacramento, where Glanville was the featured speaker.
“I’ve never seen Brandi this vulnerable and nervous,” said Yolanda Foster, who accompanied Glanville and served as mediator, therapist and friend.
Glanville, 40, had the crowd wish her father, Guy, happy birthday and shared the story of how her parents invited the son of their best friends to move into their home after he came out and was kicked out of his family’s house.
“She’s a good girl,” Foster, 49, told Glanville’s father. “You should be proud of her.”
After dinner, Glanville took her family back to her hotel room, where she and her father awkwardly tried to end their feud.
“How you doing?” Glanville asked.
“My name’s Guy,” her father said jokingly, before adding, “I’m glad I came. I came for your mom. And we will go forward. And the outfit looks really good on you.”
“I love you,” a tearful Glanville said, while her father held her and fireworks exploded in the distance.
“I love you, too,” he finally said, after not repeating it to her over the course of the night.
“I’m still somebody’s daughter,” she cried. “I still need my dad.”
Joyce Giraud, 38, organized a self-defense class for the wives, after stating that she had been the victim of a home invasion, as had Foster, who revealed an intruder brandishing a gun had burst into her bedroom years ago, as she lay in bed holding her newborn daughter.
The women learned appropriate techniques, including how to choke an attacker, as well as how to engage and be aware.
Then they climbed into the boxing ring, where they put on the gloves and took out their aggression on each other.
Glanville ended up hurting her hand while boxing, but her mouth – as she so aptly stated earlier in the show – remained intact.
“I have foot in mouth disease,” she said.
