'Real Housewives' Brandi Glanville, OTRC.com correspondent, talks Oscars, LeAnn Rimes: 5 facts
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville will serve as the special fashion correspondent for the "OTRC.com at the Oscars" LIVE STREAM show, set to air before the ceremony on OTRC.com/live on Sunday, February 24 at 1:30 p.m. PT / 4:30 p.m. ET.
She joins Lawrence Zarian and Tina Malave, who are co-hosting OTRC.com's special online show for the second time.
Check out 5 facts about Brandi Glanville and her new job.
1. She wants Halle Berry to make up for what she wore to the Golden Globes.
Glanville says she "didn't love" the blush printed gown that the actress wore to the 2013 Golden Globes. (See PHOTOS of Halle Berry at the Golden Globes.)
"So, I'm really looking for her to make up for that. For me. With me. She needs to make up with me."
2. If LeAnn Rimes shows up on the Oscars red carpet ... she's willing to critique her ...
Glanville and the country singer have been involved in a feud for years. Cibrian cheated on her with Rimes while they were married and the two later wed. Rimes and the actor have not been named as a celebrity participant in the 2013 Oscars.
Glanville has admitted her own marital infidelity -- she told OTRC.com that technically, she cheated on Cibrian because she was involved with someone else while they were separated, but still legally married (watch her interview).
Glanville points out that she says positive things about Rimes in her book, "Drinking and Tweeting: And Other Brandi Blunders."
"I've said she has a beautiful voice, I say she has nice skin in the book. I mean, I call it like I see it. Does it mean I have to like her? No," Glanville told OTRC.com. "But if she has a nice dress on, I'll say she has a nice dress. I mean, I could tell you how when I see her now, I liked her better really blonde. I'm not that person. I'm not a hater."
"But the actions of what she's done ... her actions, they hurt me, so I fight back. But as far as just critiquing her, and him -- like, he's obviously a very handsome guy. He's got good fashion sense. She's a question mark sometimes. But if she looked good, I'd say it."
3. She's had experience on the red carpet and on the runway.
Before she joined "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" in 2011, Glanville worked as a model for more than 20 years and also has a dress line called Brand B.
"I think being on the red carpet is the hardest, because you're kind of in your own head and you're wondering if you're standing right and holding your hands right or if people are going to say mean things about you," she said.
When you're on the runway, you're doing a job -- you're wearing someone else's clothes, you go down, you come back, you're done," she added. "It's not that difficult. I did love that though. It was very fun."
4. She is not afraid to say what she thinks about the celebrities.
"I'm looking forward to critiquing because I get to say whatever I want!" Glanville told OTRC.com.
"I'm not afraid to say I don't like something," Glanville added. "I'm not afraid to say, you know, 'She should have spray-tanned.' I'm not afraid to say those things. So hopefully it'll be just a great energy between the three of us."
Her potty mouth, she says, she'll save for "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."
5. She recalls her own fashion "dont's."
"I'm not critiquing them as human beings and I think that when you're a public figure, we are all putting ourselves out there to be critiqued a bit for what we're wearing," Glanville told OTRC.com. "For everything really. I mean, I've seen some of the things that I've worn and went, 'What was she thinking?' And everyone has a right to say, 'What was she thinking?' It's not a big deal. I think if you take it personally, you're in the wrong business."
In addition to OTRC.com's online pre-Oscars live stream, the television broadcast of "On The Red Carpet at the Oscars" will air on select ABC stations across the country and on networks around the world, starting from 1:30 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET, just before the ceremony.
