Brandi Glanville – Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders (Gallery Books)

The pain starts right around the temples then spreads above your eyes and comes to rest squarely in the center of your forehead. After nestling there for a few minutes it starts a rhythmic throb and continues to pulse outward. At times light can cause pain that becomes unbearable and finally sound will start to hit you like shockwaves that just don’t seem to ever stop.

Are these signs you’re having a stroke or aneurism? No. Is this pain signs of a hangover left behind by too much of a good time? Nope. These symptoms are a clear sign that you can proudly lay claim to an IQ north of 100 and that you have mistakenly opened and possibly even read from the literary debut from “Real” Housewife, Brandi Glanville entitled, Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders.

I took a look at this from the purely from the anthropological perspective to try to understand the attraction to these garish, plastic, often unhinged and mostly talentless women that America has made into celebrities. Glanville is a prime example; not sure what claim she has to fame other than her role as the jilted, bitter, wife of a C-list actor who had a dalliance with troubled country singer Leann Rimes.

Not sure I gained any clarity on what the attraction is to Ms. Glanville or her cohorts but clearly there is an appetite for the details of her cheating ex, her steady diet of plastic surgery and serial one-night stands. I can’t claim to understand it, not sure I want to and my only real level of disappointment can likely be traced to the utter lack of photos and the fact that I am out of Advil.
