Several Bravolebrities have recently joined the cast of Peacock reality competition series, 'The Traitors'. The series, which premieres on Peacock, pits a group of familiar faces from shows like 'Shahs of Sunset', 'Below Deck', 'Survivor', 'Big Brother', 'The Bachelor' and 'Real Housewives' against so-called "civilians" for a cash prize... all while being hunted by a trio among their own ranks dubbed "traitors". Kate and Brandi will be appearing on-screen together for the mini Bravo reunion, and Kate would like to share her relationship arc with Brandi. She goes on to say that they had a spin-off planned before the former 'Below Deck' star became pregnant.

"I would be lying if I said some [NBCUniversal] executives didn’t already throw that out across the table," Kate said on the 'Virtual Reali-Tea' podcast while promoting Peacock's new competitive reality series, 'The Traitors'. "It was a thing, but then I had to go get pregnant," the expecting single mother, who revealed her pregnancy in December 2022, continues. While filming Season 1 of 'The Traitors' at a secluded castle in Scotland, Kate and the 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' alum quickly bonded. When questioned about her connection with Brandi, Kate exclaims, "That was my greatest gift from doing the show, truly."

"She texts me pretty much every day. If I read off the texts that I get from Brandi, they would go viral. She is the funniest human I’ve ever met," she adds. "She’s also so intelligent and so kind."

The retired yachtie, who left 'Below Deck' in 2020 after six seasons, went on to claim that, despite being a "Bravo fan", she wasn't always Team Brandi when the 'Real Housewife' brandished a diamond. From 2012 through 2015, Brandi was a full-time cast member on the show. "I’ve watched her over the years, and I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t get the glory that was Brandi Glanville," Kate said. "But I feel like … this is her moment. She’s becoming the queen of Peacock, and I love to see it."

"I want to know why the hashtag #JusticeForBrandi hasn’t been more popular," Kate added, referring to Brandi's early "villain" reputation on 'RHOBH.' "Brandi Glanville deserves a win. She has dealt with so much on every show," Kate added. "She deserves her due flowers, totally."

The South Florida resident claims she and Brandi were preparing for a show akin to 'Luann and Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake,' which starred Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan. "I don’t know if we have to go get a baby seat for the RV or maybe just pause it for a little bit," Kate laughed, imagining a future rendition starring herself and Glanville. "But I would be shocked if, at some stage down the road, there wasn’t some kind of Brandi and Kate reunion with a camera involved."

If a Brandi project fails to materialize, Kate plans to audition for a future season of 'Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip.'
