BFFs Brandi Glanville and Kim Richards are on the outs after a rumor involving Carlton Gebbia — which Brandi confirmed is ‘not true’ via her podcast.
Brandi Glanville, 48, is dishing on why BFF Kim Richards, 56, isn’t talking to her — and it all comes down to a three-way rumor. “Kim Richards is still not talking to me,” Brandi confirmed on the Nov. 27 episode of her Unfiltered podcast. “She said that she was upset about this threesome rumor. And I said, ‘Are you joking?’” she explained — specifically referencing the the social media tea including Brandi’s other close friend Carlton Gebbia. Carlton appeared on season four of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
“I think it all started when I put up a picture of Carlton, Kim, and I. Those are two of my favorite girls. They’re people I’m actually friends with. And that’s where I think it all started,” Brandi went on, denying that anything sexual happened between the women. “I’m going to make this clear, I’ve never had a threesome with Kim and Carlton, never with Kim, ever. We are just friends.”
In November, podcast host Zack Peter also talked the allegations on his #NoFilter podcast, citing an unidentified source who claimed that the threesome happened. The trio were all-smiles in the photo shared by Brandi, which she captioned, “Throwback thursday with two of my favorite ex-housewives Kim and Carlton #throwbackthursday #tbt #redbottoms,” referencing their designer pumps by Christian Louboutin.
Brandi did, however, ‘fess up to hooking up with Carlton, who departed the Bravo series after just a season in 2014. “Carlton and I, we fooled around…It was after her and [her husband] David [Gebbia] split up [in 2018] and we had a wild night,” the Drinking and Tweeting author revealed. Of course, this isn’t the first alleged hook-up Brandi has talked about in recent months: the former model was front-and-center during the last season of RHBOH over rumors she had slept with married cast member Denise Richards, 49. The Wild Things alum and current Bold & The Beautiful star has since departed the Bravo series after just two seasons, denying that anything ever transpired between her and Brandi.
As for Carlton, the dark-haired beauty was an open Wiccan — a religious practice that worships witchcraft — which didn’t exactly fly with OG housewife Kyle Richards, 51. “That was just weird. Everything she did was just so friggin freaky…I’m still convinced that she put a spell on me because bees always torture me and come in the most random places,” Kyle later said on WWHL. “That’s the season I like to pretend never happened.”
A hook-up between Brandi and Carlton may also not be a surprise to Housewives viewers as the pair did share an on-screen kiss during a season 4 trailer. “It’s not the first time I’ve kissed a girl and it certainly won’t be the last. Brandi and I got along because we both have that wicked sense of being,” Carlton — who is mom to Destiny, Mysteri and Cross — said.
