'Did Bravo tell you to shush?': Fans wonder after Brandi Glanville shuts down 'RHOBH' return rumors
BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA: Brandi Glanville reiterated on Tuesday evening that she knows 'nothing' about casting for the upcoming season of 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills', despite constantly hinting otherwise. Fans quickly accused the Bravo star of leading them on and of being an attention seeker.
Each year, the 'Housewives' franchise's reunion episodes neatly wrap up the cast members' season-long feuds and fallout. And, as was the case with the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Season 12 reunion, The reunions are frequently the most-watched episodes of the whole season. It's no wonder that people flock to these shows because of the heated drama that ensues when the cast members have to confront one another. Sadly, Bravo's producers utilize the period after reunions to design how the group will appear in the next season, therefore cast members are often let go around this time.
This year, speculations circulated that Erika Jayne and Lisa Rinna were on the verge of being dismissed owing to their extremely contentious storylines. However, it looks like the contrary has put such speculations to rest. If this is true, Kathy Hilton will not be returning for another season.
Brandi Glanville, a former 'RHOBH' cast member, recently appeared to discreetly announce her 'RHOBH' return. Brandi, who left the program as a full-time cast member in 2015, shared a video on Twitter of herself wearing a big diamond ring. Brandi's bright display, according to observant fans, was a nod to 'RHOBH's diamond props that the cast members hold throughout the opener.

Brandi, on the other hand, recently came out about her rumored homecoming, putting an end to the rumors. The Bravo alum recently turned to Twitter to put an end to fan speculation. "Hey guys everyone just keeps sending me all of these crazy but cool videos about me on Beverly Hills!" Brandi tweeted. "I honestly know nothing !!! but thanks for the love ... right now I have a sick son so I have to focus my powers on healing him."

Accusing Brandi of using clickbait, a Twitter user commented, "Wait. So you literally did the video with the diamond for click bait or pure attention?! I would actually be happy to see you back, but that attention seeking inauthentic behaviour is probably why you won’t be asked…" Another tweet read, "You have a sick son but posted a video you clearly knew would make ppl think you're back on?" Some fans also speculate this statement came after Bravo tried to keep their casting for next season under wraps, "Did Bravo tell you to shush? We know you know." Another person wrote, "Seems Mr Cohen reprimanded you? we love to see you back to shake the table and support Erika and LR!"

Tired of these promotional stunts, a Twitter user wrote, "Brandi these stunts are exhausting." Another person added, "Stop tweeting then." Asking her to focus on her family, one Twitter user wrote, "Then put all the crap and alcohol on the side and really focus on your son." Calling Brandi's video featuring her holding a diamond a 'thirsty' move, another person added, "Then why did you post yourself holding a diamond?? Thirsty AB."

While Brandi's fans are upset, they may have to accept her absence from the series. Brandi voiced her disinterest in returning to 'RHOBH' in June. "Honestly, it's a different show than what I used to shoot," Brandi told Page Six. "When we used to shoot, they would just drop us off and be like, 'You go and whatever happens, happens,'" she says. The show has evolved significantly since then. "When I came back with the Denise drama, it was like, 'OK, you sit here, you do this, we're gonna do this again,'" she recounted. "It felt very much produced to me, and I'm not an actress." Brandi said, "I'm real in the moment, so I don't know if I'm a good fit for what it is now. It just seems less authentic these days and more produced to me."
Brandi originally debuted on 'RHOBH' as a "friend of" in 2011, and then became a full-time "Housewife" the following year. She left the program in 2015 but returned as a guest in 2019 and 2020.
